*Thanks to the author for providing me with a free e-copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.*

Kyla O’Grady is on the road, trying to escape everything that happened to her and on her way to an unknown place in her Mustang when all of a sudden the engine starts to sputter and die off. Cooper, a mechanic and also a person whom helps others in order to help them better their lives sees Kyla on the trunk of her bed singing away like her car didn’t break down. From the very first moment, he becomes intrigued by this mysterious beauty and she with him, this handsome but irritating mechanic. Helping her out with her car, Cooper soon becomes enamored with everything about her and they soon start to cross unchartered territories with one another hoping not to overstep any boundaries.

Slow Ride was an amazing book. I felt like Kyla was a really great character. She was strong, maybe sometimes a bit stubborn, but she was fierce for a female character. I liked how she wasn’t afraid to say what she was thinking of but at the same time could defend herself if someone did something to her or talked bad to her. Cooper was sometimes a bit overbearing, but I felt as though he was a great character as well. He just cared way too much about Kyla and sometimes did things without a second thought or glance of what Kyla might’ve thought which was sometimes annoying. However, their relationship progressed at a really good pace and I liked all of the characters in the book except for the few which were the enemies. The part where there was a bit of fighting was great because I really didn’t see it coming. I was just so shocked and it was great to see Kyla using some of her defensive skills in order to keep herself alive. Her being abused by her ex in the past was horrible to read about, but this was her fresh start and it was read about that happening. However, there could’ve been more to the story with Frank and whatnot. It would’ve been interesting to read about if he ever encountered Cooper and the gang. All in all though, it was a great book and I really enjoyed reading it.
