Review: Drive (Cougars, Cars and Kink #1) by Teresa Noelle Roberts

"He s a kinky dream come true and her only protection from danger."

"Cougars, Cars and Kink," Book 1

Eight months after her (cheating, almost-ex) husband s death, Suzanne Mayhew has a plan to move on with her life. First step: sell off Frank s classic cars, starting with the red vintage Mustang convertible he never let her drive. Second step: get her unexplored kink on with a delicious younger man.

Preferably the one an old friend sends around, ostensibly to check out the Mustang. Neil Callahan Boston cop, Dom, fifteen years her junior.

Neil feels the mutual sizzle, but if the blush staining her cheeks is any indication, her flirting skills are a little rusty. Though his instinct tells him to take things slow with the recent widow, he can t resist inviting her along for a test drive for the whole weekend.

Throwing caution to the wind, Suzanne takes him up on it. But they re barely out of the driveway when Neil s cop instincts kick in. They ve got a tail and it looks dangerously like her ex s secrets looming large and deadly in their rear-view mirror.

"Warning: Spies, lies and vile bad guys. A meddling BFF. Inappropriate use of kitchen tools. Completely appropriate use of rope and floggers. Your mileage may vary, depending on battery life.""

Utterly intriguing book! Ms. Roberts does a fantastic job of telling this story and keeping my attention from page one!

Suzanne Mayhew is resentful lady. The last few years of her marriage were abysmal. Her husband was a sorry, cheating ass. When she starts divorce proceedings, he is killed in a car accident. Problem solved right? Not really. Suzanne feels guilty for being happy that he is gone. You should not talk ill of the dead, but even in death he frustrates her to no end! She decides to sell all of the cars he collected and jump back into the single woman mindset. Her best friend suggests she re-explore her kinky side but Suzanne isn’t sure she’s up for that.

Neil Callahan, Boston cop, is interested in the mustang Suzanne has for sale. When he meets her he’s instantly attracted. He is fifteen years younger than her and a dominate in the BDSM scene. They strike up a friendship that slowly develops into something so much more.

The added mystery within the romance brought another aspect to this erotic story I wasn’t expecting, but was pleased it was there. The characters are realistic and believable. The BDSM wasn’t over played and added to the budding romance. You could totally see where age could play a huge factor, but the author did a wonderful job of showing how Suzanne dealt with her insecurities and ultimately, grieving for her late husband. I felt sorry for her and everything she went through.

I loved this start to the Cougars, Cars, and Kink series! It was a good mix of suspense and romance with a side of kink that felt right for the characters. I highly recommend Drive and look forward to more books in the series!!
