Review: Revved by Sherilee Gray (Axle Alley Vipers #2)

Note: This ARC was provided by Entangled Publishing in exchange for an honest review.

Reid Parker has worked too long and too hard to make R.I.P. Classic the number one name when it comes car restoration to not find out why customers are taking their business to West Restoration. When he gets to his new competition's garage, he can't help but appreciate the quality of the work being done, but he's floored when he realizes that the operation is owned by three talented mechanics who just happen to be women. The one who captures his attention the most is Rusty West, the fiery redhead who knows her way around a car and isn't afraid to put Reid in his place. Now, there are two things Reid wants: West Restoration and Rusty West and he's prepared to go through one to get the other...until he starts to get to know Rusty and when feelings come into play, Reid must decide which between the two he willing to let go.

Revved is the second novel in the Axle Alley Vipers series by Sherilee Gray and surpassed whatever expectations I had it because while I liked the first book, Crashed, the chemistry between Reid Parker and Rusty West plus the fact that there was a professional rivalry of sorts between their two garages was an intriguing twist. They you've got Reid's dark past courtesy of his abusive father who refuses to go away quietly and Rusty's one and only experience with sex and these two were a combination that promised to keep me interested and that was a promise that was kept. Rusty and Reid were sexy and steamy with just enough sweetness and snark to make them such and appealing pair to read about. They not only climbed over each other's self-erected walls but broke them down, learning to trust and earn the other's in return.

I enjoyed this enemies to lovers romance, though I wouldn't exactly classify Reid and Rusty as enemies, but more of business rivals with a huge serving of attraction on the side. Both main characters are surrounded by people who care about and are loyal to them and I liked how Reid's relationships with his right-hand man Law and his apprentice Dominic as well as Rusty's close bond with her siblings, Deke and Piper, and her best friend Alex. These two are as protective and possessive of each other as their families and friends are of them. I went into this sequel thinking it would be as okay a read as its predecessor, but nope. Sherilee Gray took the story and characters up a few notches and piqued my curiosity enough to make me anticipate Piper West and Cole Black's story in Wrecked. I'm giving Revved 4.5 stars out of five. ♥
