In this charged novella by the New York Times bestselling author of Call on Me, Nothing Between Us, and Not Until You two strangers take an asphalt-burning ride into the wildest night of their lives…
Natalie Bourne thinks she has the perfect night planned for her twenty-first birthday. But when her car breaks down and her boyfriend bails on her, she’s left stranded in an auto shop dealing with a way too cocky, way too hot mechanic, who seems to be intent on pushing every button she has.
Monroe Hawkins knows he shouldn’t be messing with a girl from the uppity private college. Especially when he can tell she sees him as the help. But he’s having trouble resisting the redhead with the smart mouth and the killer legs. So when Natalie’s night goes from bad to worse, there’s no way he’s letting her spend her birthday alone. He makes her a deal—he’ll take her home but not until the sun comes up.
Ten hours, one motorcycle, and the city of Austin at their fingertips…things are about to take a major detour. And soon, there may be no U-turn in sight.

The next time I need a tow truck, I want Monroe driving it. Natalie didn’t know how lucky she was that day. What a present!
This is a wonderfully written ebook about Natalie Bourne who just has nothing but bad luck on her side on what should be the best day of her life. Little does she know, her knight in shining armor pulls up in a tow truck. After some sarcastic banter back and forth between Natalie and Monroe, she agrees to let him help her but her luck continues to go down hill. Monroe agrees to give her a ride to the restaurant for her long awaited dinner date with her boyfriend, since he can’t fix her car that night. Thank goodness Monroe stays there to wait for her after she gets to the restaurant. That’s when his charm and good heart take over and give Natalie what she needs most. The best night of her life.
I love the dialogue between the characters. Monroe’s sarcastic wit makes you chuckle while reading the story. The two characters get along right from the start so the story becomes a refreshing read. I was a little surprised by the ending and loved the epilogue even more. It is refreshing to find characters who take chances in life and “just go for it” unsure of the outcome.
Roni Loren has long been a favorite author of mine. She writes with intensity and passion and her characters all become my favorites. Her Loving on the Edge series is one of my favorites and I get excited each time a new book in the series comes out.

CRASH INTO YOU
Sometimes the past can bring you to your knees…
Brynn LeBreck has dedicated herself to helping women in crisis, but she never imagined how personal her work would get, or where it would take her. Her younger sister is missing, suspected to be hiding from cops and criminals alike at a highly secretive BDSM retreat—a place where the elite escape to play out their most extreme sexual fantasies. To find her Brynn must go undercover as a sexual submissive. Unfortunately, The Ranch is invitation only. And the one Master who can get her in is from the darkest corner of Brynn’s past.
Brynn knows what attorney Reid Jamison is like once stripped of his conservative suit and tie. Years ago she left herself vulnerable only to have him crush her heart. Now she needs him again. Back on top. And he’s all too willing to engage. But as their primal desires and old wounds are exposed, the sexual games escalate—and so does the danger. Their hearts aren’t the only things at risk. Someone else is watching, playing by his own rules. And his game could be murder.
