From Buzzfeed to Babble to Scary Mommy and even network television—the most anticipated social media viral sensation is LIVE!
At least, that was the agreement…
It all began when Daws went to Tires Tires Tires to get a new set of wheels on her car. She was suffering from writer’s block, but apparently the complimentary coffee and cookies cured her. So she decided to bring in cars of friends and family so she could keep writing in the magical waiting room.
Her social media musings had her fans in stitches and it wasn’t long before inspiration struck again. This time…Daws was to write a sexy romantic comedy about a romance novelist who sneaks into a tire shop and gets caught by a hot mechanic. You can imagine where the love story goes from here.
Eventually, the little tire shop opened their arms to Daws, even putting her release date on their marquee sign outside.
It wasn’t long before Buzzfeed got wind of it. Then Scary Mommy. Then InspireMore and several other blogs with followers well into the millions. WGN News in Chicago, Fox 10 in Phoenix and Canada Public Radio are all talking about the adorable feel good story of how inspiration can strike in the strangest of places.
She slaps her hand on her knee and bellows gallantly, “But you know what, Miles, you’re right! I should totally find a random hookup tonight.”
“Whoa, I never said anything about random.”
“Well, you’re doing it, so why can’t I?”
I narrow my eyes. “You don’t seem like the random type.”
“Maybe I should be.” Her eyes narrow when she leans in and whispers against my lips. “Can I tell you a secret, Miles?”
“You can tell me anything, Mercedes.”
She giggles and crooks her finger for me to lean in even closer. I’m so close I can smell the faint scent of her cherry lip gloss, and it’s not helping the half boner having a party in my pants.
Her lips graze my ear when she whispers, “My writing makes me horny.”
I nearly choke on my beer. “I’m sorry, what?”
“My writing makes me horny.” She pulls back and nods her confirmation. “I’m serious. I have a sex toy that works really well and really fast, but I miss the heat of a man, ya know?”
My eyes scrunch together, and I rub my fingers in the sockets to make sure I’m awake and hearing this all correctly. “I mean…I don’t really ever miss the heat of man, so I don’t think I know exactly what you’re saying.”
“Fine, the heat of a woman.” She rolls her eyes dramatically “You know what I’m talking about. The heat.”
I frown and shake my head. “You’re going to have to elaborate because I think of a lot of things when I think of women, but their body temperature isn’t one of them.”
“You asked for it.” She laughs and leans in so she’s speaking low and soft and directly into my ear. “The heat of a woman is so much more than temperature. It’s the soft, sensual curves of the female form. The way your fingers dig into the meat of her thighs when she’s wrapped around you. Her smooth, sunken tummy when she’s on her back, the delicate bumps of her ribcage when she’s throwing her head back in pleasure. Tight little nipples in pillows of creamy softness. The fact that you could fold yourself around her and envelop her body almost entirely and still want more. You’re saying you don’t miss that kind of heat?”
I blink slowly, recovering from what just happened. Her voice was a sensual, verbal caress straight on my cock. Then there was the warm heat of her breath on my ear. The deep husk of her tone. The way her warm palm rests softly on my thigh.

Holy stars! This book was a perfect rom-com to a T, T for tires that
is! It was a fun and flirty, fluffy yet dirty read. By fluffy, I kinda
mean like one of those over-priced drinks at Starbucks, not the complimentary coffee at
Tires, Tires, Tires the author was drinking while she wrote this. The kind of drink that is chock
full of flavors… and sinful calories! When I found out it was going to
be released earlier than planned, I figured I’d just have to wait until after
it was published to read and review it, because my reviewing schedule for the
week was already planned. But I couldn’t help it. As soon as I opened my
Kindle app to see if it had arrived, I couldn’t help but to go ahead and
download the book. And then of course, I couldn’t help but read a little
bit of it before I closed it to go back to the book I was supposed to be
reading and reviewing, the one that I was over half-way through. However,
I didn’t put it down right away, and I got about 10 % of the way in when I
found myself doubled up with laughter at this line about what type of music the
character was listening to as she wrote, which better not get cut:
“Groovy synth beats that are good for anal scenes.”
Okay, first off, I don’t remember Amy Daws’s books being quite that
dirty! LOL! But honestly, when you find out where the main
character Kate’s idea for her book series came from, then you get it.
Not to mention there are author friends of Amy Daws who do write those kind of
scenes. And there were a few other lines I have to share as favorites,
and hope that they don’t get cut from the final version:
“Dicks can be such…dicks.” Now this one comes from our
hero/love interest Miles. Noticing how even though he doesn’t want to get
interested in Kim, or Mercedes – her pen name, which is how she introduced
herself to him, one part of his body is definitely standing up in recognition
of his attraction.
And towards the end, when Miles
is on the phone with his sister who has just woken him up, she very rightly
asks him if he is peeing while talking to her. He says, “It’s the creek by my house. It runs really fast and
hard in the morning!” I couldn’t laugh out loud or roll on the floor at this like
I wanted to, as I was actually sitting at work and finishing up the last 15% of
the book at my desk.
This one wasn’t as emotionally draining as the other books I’ve read by the
author, but in no way did that make it any less of a perfect story. Both Amy Daws and her character Kate made
me want to go find my own “Tire Depot” to get my inspiration for my
own writing. Reading about a character writing made me pull out the short
story I’m working on and finish updating/revising another chapter.
I really liked these characters also, and look forward to hopefully getting
stories about the friends in the next two books. My guess is that her
best friend, Lynsey, is going to be the next story we get. And then I
wonder if we’ll get their other friend Dean, or maybe it will be Miles’s friend
Eric? I don’t know, don’t care, just want to read more of this series,
more of any writing by this author.
Also, I just have to share my fangirl pictures with the author:
Amy Daws is an Amazon Top 100 bestselling author of the Harris Brothers Series and is most known for her punny, footy-playing, British playboys. The Harris Brothers and her London Lovers Series fuel her passion for all things London. When Amy’s not writing, she’s watching Gilmore Girls or singing karaoke in the living room with her daughter while Daddy awkward-smiles from a distance.
