Nice Girls Don't Ride by Roni Loren

Natalie Bourne is having her worst birthday ever. She is turning twenty- one and instead of having fun she’s stranded in the middle of nowhere. It’s hot and humid. Her boyfriend, whom she thinks is going to ask her to move in together is not answering his phone. Needless to say, she is in a bad mood. So when a tow truck guy stops to help her, she let’s him have it. 

Monroe Hawkins is helping his brother out with their auto mechanic shop. However, his real passion is food. He has road trip coming up. Just him, a van, food, and hopefully women. When he meets fiery red-hair Natalie, he has to admit that he likes what he sees. Helping her through some heartache until the sun comes out seems like a good idea. 

I love this little gem. It’s a novella, so you know everything has to play in a fast forward pace. So insta-love has to play a part. It never bothers me in novellas (big time in novels). Both characters were great. They had tons of chemistry and passion. Like every good novella, I wish this one was longer. I was not ready to let these characters go.

This novella was great! It was sweet, sassy and the chemistry between Natalie and Monroe was killer.

Natalie’s 21st birthday doesn’t go at all the way she planned. She was supposed to be sharing a romantic dinner with her boyfriend at a high-end restaurant and wowing him with her killer dress.  

“Looks like you need a ride.”

She ends up on the back of a motorcycle, sharing her birthday with a total stranger instead. Monroe is so much more than Natalie expected when he stepped out of the tow truck.  The tattoos and motorcycle boots had her convinced, he was up to no good. Turns out there’s depth behind those killer eyes of his and a desire to chase his dreams that’s contagious.  

It’s a night that neither of them could ever forget.

“I’m completely stupid over you. Like, losing-my-mind into you.”

Why wasn’t this a full length novel? This story was so sweet and left me giddy. Monroe was perfection in my eyes and I want more.  Hopefully, just maybe, this might possibly be the start to a new series? Well, that’s what’s what I’m hoping at least. We get to see their first night together and the epilogue gives us a glimpse of where they are a few weeks later, but I want everything in between and after. They’re too great together for there not to be more to their story.

I haven’t read anything else from Roni Loren, but after this, I’m excited to check out her series.
