Get Drive Shaft by Geoffrey Knight on Amazon & Kindle UnlimitedThis novel combines two sequential novellas previously published separately, titled Drive Shaft and Drive Shaft: Between a Rock and a Hard Place. This is the first time the two stories have been combined with a new HEA added.

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.

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 is determined to claim victory over his new work colleague – both physically and sexually.

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? Will the dangers that confront them both be enough to tear them apart… or bring them together forever?

4✨s – Well this is a fun read! Jensen arrives at his relative Clyde’s auto shop on his Ducati motorcycle and is almost immediately challenged by shop mechanic Hutch to a series of three races against him and his Viper with a prize of winner-take-all. Literally all! Both the challenges and rough, testosterone fueled sex are tangentially related to a tragic episode in Hutch’s past. In the second part, Hutch and Jensen have become lovers, making a small family with Clyde, his blind labrador Moses and themselves. Clyde’s bad finances brings the local mob boss into their lives, putting both Hutch and Jensen into a much bigger race with deadly consequences for losing.

I’ve enjoyed a couple of Geoffrey Knight’s books before so I knew I’d be greatly entertained. This is more a parody of action-adventure novels than strictly an erotica story, and offers an amusing plot. The author’s stories fit a particular niche within the genre for the humor and heart that go along with the thrills and rough, randy sex. This duo of tales felt like I was reading a Tom of Finland illustration brought to life in a pulp-fiction novel, adding a mash-up of The Great Race movie and a Dukes of Hazzard episode. (I’m showing my age, aren’t I?) The characters are exaggerated versions of everyday heroes and villains but have enough depth to capture my attention and make me root for an HEA. It’s lighthearted, sexy and laugh-worthy. Give this one a try!
