Roadside Assistance is my first book by Marie Harte and the second book in the Body Shop Bad Boys series. The minute I read the summary of this book, I knew I had to read it. I'd been wanting to read a romance about a mechanic hero that was total badass but knew how to treat a women both in and out of bed. There's just something about a blue collar guy, someone that performs manual labor and isn't a billionaire or a rock star or a privileged man. A guy that is highly skilled with his ha

I don’t know how I’m going to be able to write thing review without gushing or jumping with excitement. As you probably know, Marie Harte has been an author whose work I’ve been loving recently. ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE is the second book of the Bad Boys Body Shop series and it’s probably one of my top books by her. Not only if the hero of the book, Foley Sanders, an absolute dream but this book is funny, charming, witty and downright hotter than hell too! It literally has all the things I love

DISCLAIMER: I RECEIVED AN E-ARC FROM THE PUBLISHER THROUGH NET GALLEY IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW. RECEIPT OF THIS BOOK IN THIS MANNER DOES NOT AFFECT MY OPINION OF THE BOOK OR THE CONTENT OF MY REVIEW!

I loved this book! As always, it was good to see the McCauley/Webster's crew in action, but this book dealt with a couple of deeper issues: emotional abuse at the hands of a parent as well as body image issues.

Foley was an unlikely hero, and yet I couldn't imagine anyone else for Cyn! I loved

I liked this one. Foley was a neat guy; rough around the edges but sweet, thoughtful smart, and sexy. I loved his relationship with his mother. Cyn was smart, beautiful, a smartass, and awesome. I related to her body image issues and her difficult relationship with her mother. I was glad that her issues didn't magically clear up but were handled realistically. I also loved the humor.

Slick's review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

It is hard to put into words how much I loved Marie Harte's Roadside Assistance; the hero is on the crude side but has a heart of gold, the heroine is successful and sassy but even in her 30's is dealing with her mother's verbal abuse, the feelings that developed between them surprised them both, and the secondary characters added so much fun, some colorful commentary and a bit of tension. All of these things rolled together made Roadside Ass

This was a great place to start with Marie Harte. I usually don't read out of order, but this book's plot just appealed to me too much. I mean, a heroine who isn't super-thin mixed with a regular mechanic? And add in some steamy scenes? SOLD!

And it turned out to be really good, too. I liked Cyn and Foley, the main couple, together. Cyn was super-confident and relatable, but had issues when it came to dealing with her verbally abusive mom. Foley was protective and sweet, even though his looks di

I like the characters, but the heroine's insecurities are overwhelming and redundant. I had to put it down for a week before returning to finish it. I hope to have more success with the next book.

Before talking about this, I just wanted to say that I am going to write about each book I read this year, I don't write a full-length review for all the books I read and that's no fun. So I've decided to write at least a little something about each book I read.
I read McCauley Brothers series first by Marie Harte, I absolutely loved it and I am very happy to say that I am loving this spin off series too.

What a fun novel! Harte had me laughing so hard I was in tears throughout this novel. She showed life at its finest, while also hinting at the dark undertones that can run through it. At the same time, there were also some real tear jerker moments. The banter between the characters is so real. I love how it brought not only the characters, but the entire story to life.

I love how Harte brought all of the different characters’ emotions to life throughout the story. It really made Foley seem larger

This is book two in the Body Shop Bad Boys. I didn't read Test Drive but after finishing Roadside Assistance, I really want to read it.

Cynthia Nichols is a successful woman in her thirties. She co-owns a business with her brother Matt and sister-in-law Nina. At the beginning of the book, Cyn is fiery mad. The Body Shop next door has overtaken her parking lot and she made sure the one in charge of the body shop at that time, Foley, knows about it. She was having a bad day and she kind of wen

There is nothing quite like attempting to write a review for a book you read almost a month ago, which is what I am trying to do right now. Forgive me if the details are a little sparse, but I definitely want to talk about this book. Roadside Assistance is the first book that I've read by Marie Harte, but it definitely won't be my last.

Roadside Assistance is about sexy and sweet mechanic Foley Sanders and gorgeous (and sometimes a bit cranky) coffee shop owner and businesswoman Cynthia Nichols.

Every time I go into a Marie Harte book I know two things; one it’s going to be hot and steamy and two, the characters are going to be different each and every time. Roadside Assistance is the second installment in Harte’s new series, Body Shop Bad Boys and I have to say there were things that just stood out on this one.

Ramblings:
Reading about the mechanics at Webster’s Garage was a fun way to pass the time, but now what? Now, I’m going to read the Doonigans series. From mechanics to marines. “Ooh-rah!”

Summary:
Cynthia (Cyn) Nichols endured years of her mother’s thinly-veiled criticisms and the resulting blows to her self-esteem. She’s also sworn off men: forever! They assume she’ll stop being curvy and simply change into some thinner version of herself. Well, here’s a newsflash: she rather be a celibate cat lad

Foley Sanders is used to being bigger than life. He and his best friend are known as the Badass Bros around the garage they work at. Everyone thinks he’s a thug due to his size and tats while very few will stand up to him and put him in his place. That soon changes when Cyn Nichols walks through the garage. She’s all kinds of fiery and Foley just cannot stay away.

Annette  Dahl "Old Vicarious Reader"

I decided to start this series with Foley and Cyn. The Hero was a very confident big hunky guy. Saw what he wanted and went after it (her). Our Heroine was a confident entrepreneur. Her only problem was a verbal abusive mother who made her feel like a fat undesirable women. By the end of the book I was confused if Cyn was a BBW, or had just suffered from verbal abusive. Oh, well this HEA was perfect just like her and Foley as a couple.

The narration was done by Laura Jennings, and she did a pret

Roadside Assistance is a scorching hot addition to Marie Harte's marvelous Body Shop Bad Boys series. In this outing, tattooed bad boy mechanic Foley Sanders meets the woman of his dreams, Cynthia "Cyn" Nichols, when she storms into Webster's Garage and lets him know in no uncertain terms that she is VERY unhappy about a parking issue.

Although he has a bit of a checkered past, Foley has not been in any type of trouble for years. He loves working at Webster's Garage and he considers his boss and

One look at Foley Sanders and Cynthia Nichols knows he is the epitome of trouble... bad boy good looks, tattoos, and a smile she is sure has charmed many woman right out of the clothes. But as much as she realizes he isn't what she needs in her life, she can't seem to ignore his bad boy charm, and it irks her to no end. She hasn't had the best of luck with men, and the last one to come into her life left her scarred and filled with self doubt, and she struggles everyday to overcome the damaged t ...more

This is not my first read by Marie Harte. I have, in fact read and enjoyed her McCauley Brothers series and that was the reason I decided to start with this series. Roadside Assistance is the second book in the Body Shop Bad Boys series but each book can be read as a standalone as each book is of a different couple. But the characters do overlap and you can read Test Drive before this for a richer experience. But getting back to Roadside Assistance, I quite enjoyed the book.
