He'll rev her up and drive her to the edge...

Rusty West swore she was done with men. Instead, she channeled her passion into West Restoration, the car shop she runs with her sisters. But Rusty's aloof composure fades when the owner of the competition comes striding into her shop, over six feet of sexy, rough-edged confidence… hot enough to send Rusty's motor into overdrive

Sherilee Gray Axle Alley Vipers:

Revved is book two in the Axle Alley Vipers series by Sherilee Gray. This book was generously provided to me in exchange for an honest review by the author.

When I read book one of this series, Crashed, I fell in love with it. But when I love a book that much, I worry that the next book might not be as good. Well, I needn’t have worried because I loved this one just as much. This series is just so amazing.


In this one we get to know Rusty West, one of the three co-owners of West Restoration, along

4 - "Grease looks good on you." Stars!

I have to admit I was a little bit wary when I started the second book in the Axle Alley Vipers series, after the first book Crashed; Deke and Alex’s story left me a little underwhelmed. Luckily Revved lived up to its name, and Reid and Rusty’s story kept me well entertained, and pretty Revved up to it’s end.

I liked that the author gave this couple a slower build to boiling point than in the previous book. Rusty is wary of men, and dirty talking, Reid took t
Amber .:★Wild Heart Reviews★:.

Revved by Sherilee Gray is the second book in the Axle Alley Vipers series. I'm not sure where to start with this one because I absolutely loved this book. I've been waiting for Rusty's book since I finished the first one! So, to go over technical information. Revved is told from third person point-of-view between the main two characters, Rusty and Reid. It can completely be read as a standalone novel, you don't need to reach Crashed to enjoy Revved. It is a full novel, with an HEA and no cliffh
Reid Parker owns multiple car restoration shops. When some of his prime business is going to a rival shop he goes to investigate, only to find an all woman shop with top grade work...but what captures his attention the most was a fiery and very sexy woman, Rusty, at the wheel. Now Reid has found two things he must have West Restorations and Rusty West.

Overall Opinion: This was just above "just ok" for me. The abrupt ending (one of my biggest pet peeves btw) sealed the fact that it wasn't 4 stars. Otherwise -- It was pretty low drama, had some steamy times, and an easy read.

Storyline: This is Rusty and Reid's story, They meet when Reid goes to Rusty's to check out the competing garage that has been stealing customers from his restoration business, and is shocked to find that the garage is owned by 3 females. The sparks fly immediatel

Had to reread due to book 3 finally being released. Wanted to refresh my mind.

2 was better than 1 ⭐⭐⭐⭐
I laughed, got a bit chocked up and had a few stomach drop moments but I loved it! I'm still laughing thinking about certain moments.

The only complaint I have right now is that we get a HFN and I like to know more about my couples. We don't even get an epilogue and those are my fav. Boos

I sometimes have to wonder if Rusty knows what she's doing to Reid, "her hand went to his knee, green eyes wide, sincere. “That’s a really nice thing to do.” Trying to keep his ***k under control around this woman was hard enough, but when she put her hands on him?" Reid isn't shy he just blurbs out what he's thinking, “I was stroking my ***k the whole time you talked to me. Your voice makes me so hard, my balls ache. So effing hard I had no choice but to take my ***k in my hand and get myself o ...more

Once again, the Vipers of Axle Alley have me cheering for them. After reading Deacon's and Alex's story not long ago, I knew that the Axle Alley women had tales that I needed to get into...and soon. In what's essentially a rivals-to-lovers story, Rusty West is forced to confront her own demons about relationships when Reid Parker strolls into her compound with the intention of buying her business out. It isn't long before their personal issues come into play...and threaten to wipe out their fled ...more

My first by the author and definitely not my last. These lady mechanics are smoking hot but there's so much more to them. Rusty's insecurities made her a very likeable character. She was unique and as vulnerable as the rest of us despite her gorgeous state. Reid is a complex dude with a lot more to offer than meets the eye. Their chemistry is on point and need I say that the loving is scorching hottt?

All in all this was a good book. It had just enough of a bite and a lot of heat to keep it interesting. Wasn't a fan of the female MC, Rusty West. I expected so much more from her in terms of being fierce, feisty and strong. Instead she was childish, immature and a coward. I love me an alpha male and Reid Parker was right up my alley. He was all growly, possessive, strong and delicious.

Now for the next and final book in this series. Piper's story.

4.5 stars

Revved was such a good read, I couldn't put it down!

Loved both Reid and Rusty, they were strong, stubborn and very entertaining characters.
I enjoyed watching their relationship develop, there was never any doubt these two passionate people belonged together. Their chemistry was off the charts!

I'm loving the Axle Alley Vipers series and while each book can be read as a standalone I highly recommend you read them all. Can't wait for Piper's and Cole's book next in Wrecked

Thank you Entang

This was a very entertaining story about two stubborn people falling in love. Rusty is a female mechanic working in her own restoration garage with her best friend and her sister; making it the only shop with a female only crew: all of them inked, bad-ass and full of spunk.

Then there’s Reid our alpha, growly, dirty mouthed mechanic and owner of several shops around the city.

Our couple meets when Reid discovers that they are losing customers to some unknown little gar

Revved is the second book in the Axle Alley Vipers series by Sherilee Gray and its just as good as the first book! It just sucked me in from the start and had to finish it! I loved Rusty and Reid's story! They seemed so real that I felt I could be friends with them!

I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I haven't read the first book in this series, and while this book can be read as a standalone, I still wish I read the previous book. Maybe I would have more insight as to the relationship between the main characters as well as their backstory. Not that these things weren't touched throughout the book. However, I would have liked to read about the main characters when they were just secondary charact

This was a lovely little surprise!

Rusty was a dream of a heroine, super fiesty and packs a punch when you piss her off, but also really sweet and innocent when it came to men. I loved that she owned a garage and wasn't afraid to get her hand dirty, proving that it isn't just a Mans world.

Reid was a little different, I started off disliking him as he came across self assured cocky and arrogant(typical alpha man faults) but his reasoning for being a rustys shop is what annoyed me more. Though soon

I read the first book in the series and while it was an okay read for me, I think that this one definitely hit all the pluses for me in comparison and I enjoyed it quite a lot. Rusty is a no-nonsense gal, a beautiful woman who happens to be very talented as a car restorer. But she gets tired of men who only see her looks and not the rest of her. When she first meets Reid, it seems like he's going to be just like all the other men she's encountered, but he's as attracted to her fiery wit and her ...more

I enjoyed Book 2 of the Axle Alley Vipers series much more than the first. it was a much better story. It mad me laugh, sad and at times frustrated. I love a book that gets you involved. There was a little predictability in the story but it still good. They were both commitment shy. Rusty was still hurt from something that happened in her past. She is very defensive when it comes to her looks and the interest of ant man. Reid had a rough childhood and felt that he had t

I began Revved without realizing that this was a second book. Rest assured that was not an issue in the least. It is obvious that there was more to the story for Alex and her Fiance, but it did not hinder this experience, and is very effective as a stand alone novel. Rusty and Reid were explosive in this story with chemistry off the charts. Be sure to prepare it might cause you to the sweat. The concept of these vibrant beautiful intelligent women living their dreams in a man's world is perfect. ...more

Revved is the first book written by Sherilee that I've read and I can't say enough good things about it. It was fantastic from beginning to end. I loved that Rusty and the gals were tearing it up in what is usually looked at as a man's world. That they were such close friends and were doing what they loved together. It's what brings Reid into her life, but it definitely isn't what keeps him there. They have a sizzling chemistry that will take them way out of their comfort zone and will rock thei ...more

Awesome read! I really loved this one. Great writing and characters that are fun and real make this a very enjoyable story.

When Reid Parker's car restoration business starts losing customers to another shop he knows he has to find a way to stop it. He decides to visit West Restoration to assess the situation. Once he sees the operation he knows he not only needs to own that shop but the feisty red headed woman that worked there. Rusty West may not be so agreeable to either of those though!

I was gonna give it a 3...then the last 18% occurred and...I just can't.

The writing got better, I think...that or my tolerance for crap is getting higher. It was so light on plot and heavy on sex I'm not sure what the fuck happened.

Well, I started skimming, that happened. Then it just got clichéd with the whole troubled bad boy and tragic heroine on a surface level and all under 200 pages and...I yawned.

Yeah. 2 stars.
