Gearheads, grease monkeys, admirers of alternative uses for automotive equipment… Um, about that, moving on (NSFW and it will cause a bit of clucking from the safety first folks). If you think watching Top Gear is the ultimate turn on, you’re gonna love Drive Shaft, but keep a bowl of ice cubes handy because you’re going to need them.
In fact, I’m typing this with one hand and mopping my brow with said ice cube in the other hand to cool off. There are chills, thrills, and non-stop action you can taste, smell and feel when all cylinders fire from the Viper and the crotch rocket (a Duc, be still my heart).
And I haven’t even mentioned Hutch and Will, two guys who are as unlike each other as can be, yet when they’re thrown together in Clyde’s Body Shop, it doesn’t take much to get the heat
ratcheted to smoking hot levels and a gauntlet thrown down with more on the line than who has the better ride.
The author does a splendid job of sketching out the characters within the confines of a short story focused more on action, of blending rough and ready passion for speed with unbridled lust and reckless disregard for life and limb. The night races are heart pounding, Fast & Furious type encounters that will light you up and set you on the edge of your seat. And what follows? Let’s just say, nobody’s really a “loser.”
There’s a character reveal toward the end and a feeling of closure rather than a cliffhanger segueing into the next in the series. In short, it’s a proper short story.
I really, really enjoyed Drive Shaft. It’s a fast-paced, strap in, gentlemen start your engines, no holds barred ride. A recommended read.
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. Young and handsome, he was the kind of simple, honest guy who was happiest when he was working hard, with oil smeared across his chest and grease up to his elbows.
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 challenges Jensen to a series of perilous night races. The prize: sexual domination!
Night after night, wheels burn, passions flare and the no-holds-barred lust between two testosterone-fuelled daredevils ignites. But losing a race is one thing. Losing your heart is something altogether more dangerous.
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?
Kickstart your need for speed, fire up your lust for life and buckle up for hottest thrill-ride of the year—Drive Shaft.
