Overview

In this erotically charged novella by the New York Times bestselling author of Call on Me, Nothing Between Us, and Not Until You two strangers take an asphalt-burning ride into the wildest night of their lives…

Natalie Bourne thinks she has the perfect night planned for her twenty-first birthday. But when her car breaks down and her boyfriend bails on her, she’s left stranded in an auto shop dealing with a way too cocky, way too hot mechanic, who seems to be intent on pushing every button she has.
Monroe Hawkins knows he shouldn’t be messing with a girl from the uppity private college. Especially when he can tell she sees him as the help. But he’s having trouble resisting the redhead with the smart mouth and the killer legs. So when Natalie’s night goes from bad to worse, there’s no way he’s letting her spend her birthday alone. He makes her a deal—he’ll take her home but not until the sun comes up.
Ten hours, one motorcycle, and the city of Austin at their fingertips…things are about to take a major detour. And soon, there may be no U-turn in sight.

Includes a preview of Roni Loren’s Call on Me

Sexy Hero, Spunky Heroine, and Motorcycles Nobody wants to smell like sweat and roadkill on their 21st birthday, but that's where Natalie starts. This is a sexy little novella featuring a hot, tattooed, motorcycle-riding hero, a spunky young woman who is NOT a princess nor a pushover, and a douchey, soon-to-be-ex-boyfriend. Light and funny, the sexual tension is great, and the Happily For Now is everything we could wish for.

Readers looking for a little afternoon delight will find fun and flirtiness when two people push past their prejudices to find HEA in this perfectly-paced romance. With its two likable main characters and witty banter this novella shows why Ms. Loren has become a favorite of mine and will leave readers wanting more. From her Loving On the Edge series to this work readers are taken on an entertaining journey that fully immerses us in their sensual world and leaves us rooting for their HEA. Natalie has always tried to be the good girl, distancing herself from her trailer park beginnings, in order to make a better future for herself than that of her mother. She's heading in the right direction though with a clean-cut boyfriend moving up the social ladder and her burgeoning writing career, but something's missing. On the night of her 21st birthday she discovers just what that is after her car breaks down on the side of the road and her boyfriend shows his true colors. It's time to stop being what she isn't, her perfect facade's done nothing but gotten her cheated on. It's time to embrace her dreams and experience true freedom with the sexy motorcycle rider with a heart of gold. Natalie's prim and proper side was just waiting to explode and once it did it was refreshing and had me squealing with joy. She was a cautious girl early on but her snarky and tell it like it is side soon came through to make her and Monroe's unexpected connection highly entertaining. From the moment readers see Monroe you know he's going to give you a good time. He's carefree, likes to have fun, and isn't looking for a long-term relationship. Being around Natalie though brings out a different side. He may not want to be her white knight but he ends up giving her the best birthday ever by showing her her true worth. He's a tattooed God who may appear a bit rough around the edges but he's an honorable man with a sweet soul and I quickly fell for him. His interactions with Natalie were flirty, playful, and teeming with sexual tension and it led to a crackling connection. Just when their HEA appears in reach his plans to see the east coast put a damper on things as does her fears over taking a leap of faith. Will his promise of happiness and freedom be enough to tempt her to join him for the ride of her life or will she go back to being cool, calm, and collected? This was a quick read with the perfect balance of laughter and romance. The connection between Natalie and Monroe might've been quick but it felt more real than what she had with Caleb. Though she gave Caleb a piece of her mind over his cheating, I still felt that things between them were left undone. I also would've liked to see more of Natalie's past as it greatly affected her relationships now. Ultimately though this was another well-crafted story from Ms. Loren with two immensely likable characters and their sexy and sassy road to romance and I recommend it to readers looking for a little afternoon delight.

In Nice Girls Don't Ride by Roni Loren, Natalie Bourne has had the day from hell. Usually your twenty-first birthday is a memorable day full of friends and fun. But Natalie has spent it thus far with her car breaking down on the side of the highway next to odorous roadkill, in the Texas heat, and her fancy dinner date with her boyfriend looks like it won't be happening. Not that she can seem to get in touch with him anyway. So when a stunningly hot mechanic stops to offer Natalie assistance, her first reaction is to turn him away. But Monroe proves to be her hero, in more ways than one. "Well, you, Monroe Hawkins, are a sweet guy." "Oh, God, please don't let that rumor get out," he says with mock horror. "And maybe this is all still a massive ploy to get you to sleep with me." I laugh. "Sexual favors in exchange for car repairs?" "I'm totally not above that kind of bartering system." Monroe Hawkins knew when he saw gorgeous Natalie on the side of the road, they were probably from different worlds. But that didn't stop him from wanting to help her out. Especially when he finds out her jerk of a boyfriend is leaving her high and dry on her birthday. What begins as a nighttime ride on his motorcycle to show Natalie she can still enjoy her birthday leaves Monroe willing to do anything to make her his own. Nice Girls Don't Ride was an intense, sexy, fun novella by the one and only Roni Loren. There was so much I enjoyed about Natalie and Monroe that it's hard to know where to begin. I can always count on Roni Loren for characters that are well defined and for an interesting, solid plot. Even in this short story, both of those were true. I've also come to expect crazy heat between the protagonists in her books. Let me tell you, Monroe and Natalie had exactly that. I loved that from the moment they first saw each other they couldn't believe how strong their attraction was. There was just no getting around it, and it was what drove the storyline in such an entertaining direction. And what is it about a bad boy with tattoos, who drives a motorcycle, but who has a good heart underneath all the bravado? Monroe indeed turned out to be the knight in shining armor he and Natalie joked about. (It certainly wasn't her boyfriend Caleb...) I loved that Monroe was thoughtful enough to help Natalie turn what had been a horrible day -- her birthday, no less -- into one of the most memorable nights of her life. They had a sweet and fun vibe between them that was a joy to read about. My only complaint? I didn't want it to end! Seriously...I'd love to see a follow up story on what happens to them in the future. Love a hot & steamy story about a bad boy who saves a good girl? Look no further than Nice Girls Don't Ride.

Ever want to be someone other than yourself, escape your boring planned life, then this book is for you? Sometimes the best things come along and throw us in a different direction, the one we needed to live! This a very short book, but I loved the fast paced story line and the fact our life can change for the better in one night!
