Review: Drive Shaft (Drive Shaft #1) by Geoffrey Knight

Jensen Rivers wasn’t looking for trouble. As the new kid on the block at Clyde’s Body Shop, all Jensen wanted was a job, a place where he could put his head down and ass up. Young and handsome, he was the kind of simple, honest guy who was happiest when he was working hard, with oil smeared across his chest and grease up to his elbows.

But Dean ‘Hutch’ Hutchinson plans on getting more than just Jensen’s hands dirty! Reckless and arrogant, drenched in sweat and dripping with a masculinity that cannot be tamed, Hutch challenges Jensen to a series of perilous night races. The prize: sexual domination!

Night after night, wheels burn, passions flare and the no-holds-barred lust between two testosterone-fuelled daredevils ignites. But losing a race is one thing. Losing your heart is something altogether more dangerous.

Will Jensen risk everything to find the love trapped behind Hutch’s fearless façade? Will Hutch bury the secret tragedy of his past before he throws away his last chance at a future?

Kickstart your need for speed, fire up your lust for life and buckle up for hottest thrill-ride of the year—Drive Shaft.

OMG!  What can I say about this book?  I like Geoffrey Knight’s writing.  I have enjoyed every book I have read by him, few as they are.  (Working on that.)  This one was no exception.  I did enjoy it.  That being said, this story was edgy.  I was very surprised with some of it.  Not that I was expecting something else really, but that I wasn’t expecting what I got.

There wasn’t a lot of character development in this, but maybe, just enough.  I never got a sense that I really knew any of the guys in this story.  Snippets were leaked out like drops of precious water on an arid dessert.  Few and far between.

The action . . . Well let me tell you, there was speed.  The races that Jensen and Hutch have are hair-raising!  I am kind of glad I was only reading about them and not actually watching them.  I would have had a heart attack for sure.  By reading about them, the speed was slowed down just enough for my heart to keep beating.  These guys were certifiably crazy to be racing where and how they did.  The fact that no one got killed was pure miracle.

Then there was the after race activities.  OMG!  *fanning self* One was kinky, the other was kinkier.  Wow!  So be warned.  Not only is this an m/m erotic romance, but it is kinky too.  This is not your sweet hea romance.  These two come together like a pair of freight trains – head-on – and just about as fast.  I was actually left wondering if they even liked each other at times.

This was a short not so sweet read, but had a satisfying ending.
