I received an ARC for an honest review and that's what this is ...
honest and a bit of a hot mess but that's the best of me!
Lauren scrambles my brain with her amazingness and I'm rather incoherent afterwards! But oooohhh do I love it!!!
A new standalone novel from the fan-tab-ulous Lauren Rowe!!! God gifted this woman with writing and her new book, Ball Peen Hammer, is true proof! This deliciously entertaining, over-the-top, friendly, discovery of new friends, drama, and hilariousness is a true recommendation from me to you!
I was praying to the smut gods that there would be more from Lauren that had hints of The Club Series and by golly my prayers were answered!
Now, before we go any further please note, you do not have to read The Club Series prior to reading Ball Peen Hammer, it's purely standalone. Now, let's note one other thing, if you haven't read The Club Series, after you read Ball Peen Hammer, please do so, cause I said so and you'll thank me later. You might even buy me a shot or two afterwards as an extra thank you.
Okay, back to Ball Peen Hammer ... Lauren gives birth to these deliciously magnetic personalities of characters that you wish were real. Her characters are by far, the most fun to read about EVER! You find yourself power reading, as if your life depending on it, because the characters are that good. You hope you can look up from your Kindle or book and be staring them right in the eye and breathe a sigh of relief cause they are real. THEY ARE THAT AMAZING!!!
We meet Keane who is a Magic Mike (but hotter) stripper who has been asked into taking a drive from Seattle to LA with Maddy who's relocating there for school. Keane, if you've read The Club, is a bro to the one and only Kat Morgan! Maddy is the sister of Hannah, you know, Henn's awesome sauce girlfriend? Yes, so that right there is setup to know that this book will be full of badassness times a zillion.
So yes, these two hit the open road and as their friendship blossoms and they both decide to friend-zone each other, we all know that won't last, (especially with Keane being so cocky and full of himself --- but in the most lovable way) and the ride we get on is just FUN. I know that's a simple 3-letter word for something sofa king awesome but it's true! Not only do you get to know the depths of Keane and Maddy but there's infiltration from each of their families who are sofa king awesome and it just adds to the many layers of this read.
I'm obsessed with Keane ... I swear somehow Lauren opened my brain and took pieces of my mind that holds the thoughts from all my guy friends and made Keane. He's so cocky, full of himself but has a heart of gold. I'm lying if I didn't say I'm his female counter part, minus the stripper part ... any man that realizes this gem that I'm going to quote is a KEANE KEEPER in my book ...
"I'm talking about the basic fact that virtually every red-blooded woman, whether she admits it or not, no matter how independent and ass-kicking she might be outside the bedroom, secretly want a man to own her ass inside it."
Ohhhhh my loooordddddyyyy, when I read that intoxicating and sofa king on point line from Keane ... I know I was a goner for this boy!!!
Okay, that's all you get, if I didn't sell you on this book then I need to hang up my blogger attire. Get this book, read it, and fall in love with is. (Oh, and as mentioned above, if you didn't read The Club Series yet, go do that too.)
