Review: Stone, At Your Service (Carolina Bad Boys #1) by Rie Warren

Hell on wheels meets Hell in high heels.

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

Roped into playing his best buddy’s gay boyfriend during a romance writers convention, the player meets the girl who’s gonna rock his world. Leelee Songchild. Shy, bashful, beautiful Leelee who blushes at the drop of a hat yet writes hardcore smut to rival Josh’s backlist of Penthouse Forum.

The only problem is his hands are tied. Josh can’t stab his old friend/fake lover in the back even though all he wants to do is take luscious Leelee to bed, and maybe, love her. When the truth comes out, all hell breaks loose.

Too bad romance is just for books.

I read the title, saw the blurb and thought okay this is going to be cheesy. I mean come on, the title is screaming cheesy and when cheesy happens things tend to suck.


Stone, At Your Service by Rie Warren: Did. Not. Suck.


You couldn’t have a better cast of characters from the MCs to all the secondaries. The smary quick witted comments keep this book rolling from beginning to end. All the characters were easy to like and all the kookiness endeared me to all of them. I can’t tell you how many times I laughed out loud. The situations that Stone found himself in either between him and Nick or chasing LeeLee around kept me going from cover to cover. Kudo’s to the author for portraying Stone as such a man-whore AND keeping his dialog in character. The romance, tension and heat between Stone and LeeLee just got better and better thorough the story. Actually to tell the truth, I found the interaction between Stone and Nicky some of the best parts. Rie Warren pulled of (Very successfully might I add!) two very straight guys, passing off being guy without making it all too cliché.


I’ve read a few books by Ms. Warren and have yet to be disappointed. Fans of hers are going to love this book. Stone, At Your Service belongs on everyone’s TBR. Can’t wait to see what happens in the next book!
