Great new review from Fresh Fiction for Zero to Sixty.
ZERO TO SIXTY is a blast and a half, and a sweet and spicy romance. Sam and Ivy’s unexpected romance makes great therapy for Ivy and Sam as they get over the bad memories caused by her ex and his mother. I am crazy about this Body Shop Bad Boys series and can’t wait for the next one! Miranda Owens, Fresh Fiction
ZERO TO SIXTY is book three in Marie Harte’s Body Shop Bad Boys series. Sam Hamilton, like the rest of the guys working at Webster’s Garage and just about any other big guy with tattoos, often gets dirty looks and pegged as a potential troublemaker. The reality is that, although he likes to let loose on occasion, he is a guy who cherishes his adopted family and has a huge soft spot when it comes to animals. It’s difficult to not fall for Sam as you read ZERO TO SIXTY, just as the heroine does. Massage therapist Ivy Stephens has niggling self-doubts just as Sam does, but she’s smart enough to realize how lucky she is to have found Sam.
Like any good romantic comedy, it’s a cute dog named Cookie that brings Sam and Ivy together. When Sam and Ivy embark on a romantic relationship, they are taking a chance because each is vastly different than what the other person is used to. I love how organically the relationship develops over the course of ZERO TO SIXTY. Marie Harte brings together a hero and heroine who are adorable together and yet smoking hot at the same time. Ivy is extremely easy to relate to and like, and Sam’s internal monologue and the way he cherishes Ivy make this book so much fun to read.
Foley’s biological mother is the villain in this piece and dark cloud on the horizon, but thankfully she doesn’t really make her presence felt until near the end, and she’s not around for long. ZERO TO SIXTY showcases the strong relationships that Sam has with Foley and his mom Eileen, as well as with the rest of the guys at the shop. These healthy and supportive relationships act as a nice contrast between that of Sam’s relationship with his biological mom. Some parts of ZERO TO SIXTY will have you reaching for a tissue, while others will bring a smile to your face.
ZERO TO SIXTY is a blast and a half, and a sweet and spicy romance. Sam and Ivy’s unexpected romance makes great therapy for Ivy and Sam as they get over the bad memories caused by her ex and his mother. I am crazy about this Body Shop Bad Boys series and can’t wait for the next one!
