Product Description

Product Description

Rie Warren delivers a steamy, humorous romance with one hell of an alpha male bad boy.

Hell on wheels meets hell in high heels.

Bad boy mechanic Josh Stone likes to get his hands dirty any way he can—the filthier, the better. Ever since his wife walked out on him and their young son, he’s only had room in his heart for two loves: the kid and cars.

Roped into playing his best buddy’s gay boyfriend during a romance writers convention, the player meets the girl who’s gonna rock his world. Leelee Songchild. Shy, bashful, beautiful Leelee who blushes at the drop of a hat yet writes hardcore smut to rival Josh’s backlist of Penthouse Forum.

The only problem is his hands are tied. Josh can’t stab his old friend/fake lover in the back even though all he wants to do is take luscious Leelee to bed, and maybe, love her. When the truth comes out, all hell breaks loose.

Too bad romance is just for books.

Her work has been called edgy, daring, and some of the sexiest smut around.

They say it's hard to resist a bad boy who's a good man and Josh Stone, from the Carolina Bad Boys series by Rie Warren most definitely falls into that category. Stone: At Your Service is the first book in the series and Rie Warren's hottest release yet. I was so excited to see it make #1 in Kindles Hot New Releases within the first 48 hours of dropping! An all encompassing treat, this book is ridiculously sexy, hilariously silly and just the right amount of sweet without being saccharine, satisfying all your cravings with the heat, humour and heart Rie is known for. Though Josh is a lady killin' alpha male committing serial one night stands when we first meet him, the reader realizes from the get go he's protecting not just his own heart, but that of his young son's since his mother pulled a runner when he was born. My heart melted like butter reading about Josh as a single dad, doing his damndest to make sure his son has his full attention and love. The comic relief comes when Josh does a huge favor for his best friend and author Nicky Love – this is not your ordinary can-you feed-my-dog-while I'm away kind of favor, however. Nicky needs Josh, who is as hetero as Hugh Hefner, to play his gay lover at a Romance Writers Convention to perpetuate the lie Nicky is unequivocally off the market and therefore unavailable to his legions of lusty females fans who stalk his public appearances. At the convention, Josh meets Leelee Songchild, an up and coming writer, whose wit, sass and sex appeal throws Josh for a loop and threatens the facade he and Nicky carefully built for his career image. I loved this book. It made me horny, happy and hoping there's more – which there is! Nicky's book – Love, In The Fast Lane comes out December 11, 2014!

First time I have read this author, and certainly not the last! Absolutely loved it. I loved the humor, loved the interaction and banter between Josh & his best friend Nick. Absolutely adored JJ - I want to adopt him. And Leelee - Josh and her were perfect for each other! Can't wait to dive into the next one!

HASH(0x9c25cd80) out of 5 stars Can't wait for book 2! Sept. 25 2014
By Anise Rae - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Josh Stone is one manly character. It takes a very brave woman writer to take on such a man and cast him as the star of a romance novel. Rie Warren pulls it off brilliantly. I fell in love with Stone’s voice as he tumbles into a blossoming romance with off-limits LeeLee Songchild.

In addition to the romance and some serious sexual mojo, the story weaves in Stone’s life as a single father, a best friend, and owner of a mechanic shop. It’s told in first-person, giving a very intimate connection between Stone and the reader. And speaking of intimate, this book is full of very sexy stuff, exactly what the author is known for. The tension between Stone and LeeLee threads through the entire book, right to the end.

The story is full of characters that I’d like to meet. I’m very intrigued to know if any of the writers portrayed in the book are based on anyone that the author is acquainted with. Warren’s writing style makes you feel like she might be open to you whispering that very question in her ear should you ever chance upon her, though I have a feeling the answer might be a seductive wink accompanied by sealed lips.

I loved the ending of Stone’s story. It was exactly what this romance reader hoped it would be. Plus, there’s a teaser for the next book. Nicky’s story. Yay! Can’t wait to read the next one.

HASH(0x9c25cdd4) out of 5 stars If you want to laugh, cry and just enjoy yourself while reading a really great romance then this is the book for you! Sept. 26 2014

Overall Rating: 5 Rockin’ ★★★★★

What do you do when your best friend is an author/best seller of romance novels and needs to pretend he is gay to keep the wild women of romance off his back? You help him by going undercover as his gay lover! The whole idea that Josh Stone or Nicholas Loveland were anything but all American heterosexual men was ludicrous! Both men are men’s men with enough testosterone to run a small country between the two of them. This is where the fun, laughter and OMG did that really happen starts to go viral.

Josh Stone is a responsible father, son and overall good guy, with the exception to his Friday one night stands. His ex-wife left him, signed over all rights to their baby and disappeared. Josh loves his son with all his heart and soul and takes his job as a father seriously. He agrees to go with his BFF to a romance writers’ convention in Atlanta and protect him from all the crazy women that want a piece of Nicky Love. The first person he runs into is the woman of his dreams, the one he didn’t think he would ever find and he has to pretend to be gay and in love! What is a guy to do? Especially with a redhead, over the top sexy woman walking around in stilettoes and strutting her stuff!

Leelee is a new-comer to the industry and has just published her first novel. She is being pursued by an obnoxious agent that wants her to sign with him. Leelee did not expect to be rescued from the oily agent’s pursuit by a knight in shining armor named Stone. He made her forget her despicable ex-fiancé and want to get up close and personal with this beautiful man. Only problem she could see was the fact that he had a lover already and he was gay! What’s a girl to do when said gay guy starts getting up close and personal. Can he really want her? What is happening to her?

Will Stone be able to last a week as a gay guy to help his friend? What is he going to do about Leelee, the one he never thought he would find? This is a must read for anyone that loves a good HEA!

Hero –Josh Stone: 5 stars
Heroine –Leelee ‘Songchild’ Childes: 5 stars
Steam: 5 stars
Plot: 5 stars
Cliffhanger: No

Would I recommend this book: Yes! If you want to laugh, cry and just enjoy yourself while reading a really great romance this is the book for you! You will not be able to put it down from the moment you start reading. It really is that good!

Would I read other books by this author: Yes! Ms. Warren tells her stories with such skill that the reader is immediately enthralled. After finishing her books, I find myself hunting for another book to read by this remarkable author.

HASH(0x9c26a228) out of 5 stars You're in for a treat. Sept. 25 2014
By Heidi Senesac - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This book was satisfying on so many levels. Josh Stone is a man’s man, rough, gruff, no-nonsense. He’s the kind of book boyfriend women are really looking for. But this single dad loves his young son, is great to his mother, and fair but funny with his employees and friends. All of these trait leads him to agree to help his friend Nicky Love, by pretending to be his boyfriend at a convention of romance novelists. As they say, the road to ... well, you know where... is paved with good intentions. Because Josh isn’t at the convention for two minutes when he meets the one woman he’s convinced is right for him. Except, he’s supposed to be gay. How in the world can he pursue Leelee Songchild without ruining things for his lifelong friend, Nick. It’s a tangled mess with equal parts of fun, frivolity and hot, hot romance.

Rie Warren has an amazing grasp of writing from a man’s perspective. Not only that, she has created a secondary cast of characters that almost stole the show. I found myself loving them on the page as much as I loved Stone himself. By the time I finished reading this book, my cheeks hurt from laughing and smiling so much.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story and I’m looking forward to the rest of the series.

HASH(0x9c26a5e8) out of 5 stars Grab this if you like blue-collar dads with hearts of gold and moves of liquid silver. Sept. 26 2014
By Drea of LilyElement Reviews - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Rie Warren’s latest is a fun romp that answers the question of how fun would it be to be a hot manly man at a romance convention. The answer? Really fun, unless the woman who got your eye thought you were gay.

Here’s my blurb:

Mechanic and successful garage owner Josh Stone would do anything for his family and friends. Including posing as his best friend Nick’s lover at a romance convention, even if it means leaving his son J.J. for the first time. But when Josh meets the newest member of Nick’s author entourage, missing J.J. might be worth it…at least for a few days. Leelee is his ideal woman—beautiful, intelligent, talented, and she knows about cars. All that sexiness wrapped up in a best selling author to boot. There’s just one problem: she thinks he’s gay and in a committed relationship. And her ex ditched her for a guy.

Whoa boy, poor Josh. He’s in a bad situation here.

Josh is a blue-collar prince with all the right moves on the dance floor and in the bedroom. Somehow heroine Leelee manages to hold out, at least for a little while, even beneath his suave moves and incredible six pack. But his heart-melting interactions with his adorable son are probably what made her a goner.

Told from his point of view, Ms. Warren’s writing makes the read feel as if we’re really inside the mind of a gritty, guy’s guy. As with her other books, this one isn’t for the faint of heart. Josh thinks, and talks, much as you’d expect guys to. If you’re into the softer romances with flowery declarations, while there is some sweet-talking in this, this story might not to be your cup of tea. But if you want a romance that’s closer to life, snatch this one up.

There’s also a bonus story-within-a-story—Leelee’s hot New Adult romance. At some points I found I liked it better, actually, because it was told from dual points of view and I dig that.

Along that line, I didn’t get any of the goose bumps and chills I get with many love scenes I read. Whether this was because of the male point of view or something else, I can’t say. I did flip faster through the first few chapters, hoping we’d finally get to jump into Leelee’s mind. And we never do. I’d have loved a hint at why she did a few of the things that she did (like why she freaked out the morning after when there’d been seemingly nothing to set her off). Aside from that, this is a cute story.

Grab this if you like blue-collar dads with hearts of gold and moves of liquid silver.

It's times like this I sing praise for blog tours. I've never heard of this author so after reading this book I'm super excited to see she's gotmore books released that I can suck my teeth into.

Stones best friend Nicky asks him for a favour- to pretend to be his gay lover at an authors convention. Even though Stones a hot alpha male he agrees to help him. He regrets it as soon as he sees Leelee. I loved Stone. He's the perfect single dad alpha male-mmmm.

This book was a great read. With some awe moments and some laugh out loud moments I just loved it.

Looking forward to reading more from this author especially the next book in this series.
