Blog Tour: Carolina Bad Boys Box Set by Rie Warren

Carolina Bad Boys Box Set (Alpha Male Romance)

Enter the steamy southern world of Carolina Bad Boys, the books that got readers hooked on hot sex, killer banter, and unexpected twists.


Hell on wheels meets hell in high heels . . .

Macho mechanic Josh Stone likes to get his hands dirty any way he can. Ever since his wife walked out on him and their young son, he’s only had room for two loves: the kid and cars.

While pretending to be his best buddy’s gay lover during a romance writers convention, the player meets the girl who’s gonna rock his world. Leelee Songchild. She blushes at the drop of a hat yet writes hardcore smut to rival Penthouse Forum. To Josh she’s a killer combination. But when the truth comes out all hell breaks loose.

Too bad romance is just for books.

O.M. G! What a cute story! This is perfect for when you are looking for a light, fun read. This is definitely a book that I will read again when I am in a rut.

Josh Stone is the ultimate playboy. He plays hard and does not commit. Every girl he is with knows the score.The catch? He is only this way on Friday nights. Every other day and night of the week he is a responsible business owner and single father. The way he loves his little boy, JJ, is heart melting. There isn't too much sexier than a single daddy, except maybe a bad boy single dad.

Stone's best friend, Nicky Love, is a romance writer. He has roped Stone into going to a convention with him. Not has his best friend, but as his gay lover. BUT neither are gay. Nicky just wants to keep the ladies at bay. It is at the convention that Stone and Leelee meet.

She is shy, sweet, and gets all of Stone's pistons going. Too bad she thinks he's gay no matter how attracted she is to him. There is undeniable chemistry between the two. Leelee is confused by it, and Stone tries to deny it in order to keep up the facade for Nicky. What happens when the attraction get to be too much is... W.O.W!

The characters in this book is great. Each and every one of them have distinct, fun personalities. I wouldn't mind meeting them again in another book. I definitely would like to see Nicky find his happy ever after. Josh Stone is just hard not to love, and I think it's great that this book is told from his POV. Leelee is cute and a character a lot of women can relate to. Together, they make this book memorable

In the fast lane . . .

 New York Times bestselling paranormal author, Nicky—Nick—Love is anything but successful in love. This super hot alpha male’s been too busy running from his past and a pack of rabid female fans. Everything comes to a head when he meets the Wildcat of his dreams.
 Cool-as-ice Catarina “Wildcat” Steele is utterly untouchable until Nicky ignites a spark she can’t control. Their electric attraction explodes as Nicky pursues her, but he comes bearing the baggage of a family tragedy he’s hidden from everyone. Their passionate romance falls apart when Nicky discovers Cat’s secret rivals his own.
 Will they be torn apart . . . or tamed by love?

This is the 2nd book in the Carolina Bad Boys series by Rie Warren. It can be read as a standalone, bur I highly recommend reading book 1, Stone, at Your Service, first. This book makes references to it, the characters are from it, and it's just a great read.

This book is a great addition to the series. Yeah, it's only book 2, but it's a really, really good book! Rie Warren had a way with words. It's quirky, fun, infused with humor and sarcasm (which I LOVE), and just plain witty. This book does deal with the darker subject of addiction and its effects on everyone, just not the addict. So while this book in light in terms of mood, there is a dose of the heavy. The author balances it out perfectly.

Again, she delivered a well paced, solid storyline. I absolutely fell in love with the characters and the town. This is good 'ol small town southern life, y'all and I loved it! I just cannot tell you how much I loved every single aspect of this book.

Love in the Fast Lane has a bit of everything for everyone. This is one series you do not want to miss. Rie Warren has solidified herself on my list of MUST read authors with this book. I know I'm stalking her now, waiting for the next book in the series.

What happens at Bike Week stays at Bike Week . . .

Brodie Steele is a badass biker dude. Ashe Kingston is a hot cop with one helluva a ’tude. Their bad blood runs deep but their attraction runs too hot too handle. They make a pact. Sex. No strings attached. One week only. What happens at Bike Week stays at Bike Week. Yeah, right.

Ashe annoys the ever lovin’ hell out of Brodie and turns him on so much he can’t see straight. He keeps coming back for more. Ashe wants no part of Brodie outside of their no-strings-attached fling. But he’s hard to resist with his inked sleeves and rebellious ways, not to mention piercings in places that make Ashe melt. Brodie Steele is dangerous, delicious, and suddenly determined to have her.

Can their hot bond win out over the bad blood of years past? Or will Ashe be taken from Brodie before she lets him into her heart?

Love, love, love this book!!! O.M.G. It has a little bit of everything for everyone. If you haven't read the Carolina Bad Boys series yet, NOW is the time to start. Steele: Into Your Heart is book three in the series, so it isn't too late to catch up.

Rie Warren hooked me with Stone, at Your Service and her stories just keep getting better. Each book is infused with humor, witty dialogue, heart, steamy scenes, and hot alphas. I mean come on, who doesn't love an alpha. I surely do!

Brodie Steele is a bad ass biker with a heart of gold. He is loyal and protective. He thinks he hates Ashe Kingston for arresting his sister, but... Bike week changes his view of her when they agree to a no strings, no contact afterwards week. Of course they become addicted to each other.

But Ashe is keeping a big secret that causes her to keep pushing Brodie away. He finally has enough of the push and pull from her and he lays down his rules for their relationship. I absolutely love these two together. Both characters are really strong and independent, but passionate and caring at the same time. They compliment each other nicely.

Not surprisingly, I found myself laughing out loud several times. The author pulled me into the story, into the scenes, and made me feel as if I was there. Conversely, there were parts that made me cry. There were some really emotional parts. This is just some damn good storytelling and I can't wait to read Rie Warren's next one!

With a Heart Forged in Steele

Boomer Steele is big. He’s bad. He’s the Retribution MC pres. He’s been dealt the worst hand imaginable and bears the scars inside and out. Not that anyone knows it. He’s watched his younger brother and sister hook up and hitch up with the loves of their lives, and now he’s the last Steele standing alone. Maybe he should keep it that way.

 Then one feisty honey makes him feel, gets in his grill, pisses him off.

She goes by the name of Rayce. And that’s exactly what she does on her motocross bike when she’s not busy getting her hands dirty with her fellow grease monkeys as the only female mechanic at Stone’s Garage. She’s into fixing bikes, racing hers, and making Boomer’s life a living hell just for the fun of it. Oh, and she hates being treated like a girl.

Sparks flying? That’s an understatement where these two are concerned. Yet when Rayce needs a place to live, and Boomer offers her a room in his house, their unquenchable attraction wins out over antagonism. Sometimes. Rayce’s crappy upbringing makes her think love is for stupid fools asking for heartbreak. She’s not willing to go there for any man. 
Not even Boomer Steele.

The bigger they are, the harder they fall.
