When trouble rides into town, what girl can resist the ultimate bad boy?

Handling men isn’t an issue for me. I’m not a girly girl and my best friends are the machines I spend my days fixing, tweaking and servicing. So when the Wild Angels roll onto my forecourt and need my help, I’m happy to be of assistance.

But I’ve always been a magnet for trouble and when the leader of the pack, Gid, questions my ability, I can’t help the sassy backchat. Seems it doesn’t bother him too much and before I know it, I’m climbing onto his beast and hanging on for the ride.

Bad ass guys like him don’t come without baggage, though, and it seems he wants to get rid of mine. Who am I to complain when it means revenge is hot, his body is hotter and we leave a trail of burning rubber as we head into the sunset? Biker girl, me? I guess it’s in the blood.

Lily Harlem has a talent for writing a story that has a lot more depth than you would expect in the word count she's writing to and for the story that she is writing. It's exactly what she has done for Burning Rubber.

Burning Rubber is a mere 65 pages and originally part of an anthology.

In it, we meet Sandra, not your typical girl, who is the best mechanic in town, working for a drunkard who does not appreciate her. She's alone in the world and wondering where her life's going when Gideon roars into town looking for someone to fix his Harley.

Gideon is the type of hero that my friend Bambi would love because she loves her bad boy heroes with their bikes and tats. Gid definitely fits the bill as leader of the Wild Angels with his scruffy exterior and tattoos. Gid presses all of Sandra's buttons too. I loved Gid because he is such an anti-hero. He's got some very questionable morals and a rather hazy sense of right and wrong. There is a core of integrity and goodness to him, but it seems to come out just this side of right and when it suits him. His sense of righting wrongs and his methods are rather ambiguous too and it's best to not look too closely to which side of the law he might be flirting with. But with that, he's just the right amount of rough with Sandra, and the right amount of loyal and honorable to take care of her.

It's a short sexy book, but it packs a punch. There's lots to read between the lines and to savor.
