Tee hee!!! I LOVE the sound of this. So what’s it about?
AN AMAZON TOP 100 READ !!
Maxx Reynolds needs help. His shop, house, and life are all in a state of disarray. In desperation, he turns to the internet to hire a new employee, thinking it will make his life easier.
What he expects is a fellow named Charly. What he gets is a quirky, sassy, red-head named Charlynn who runs circles around him. And she’s all woman.
He can’t stand her. He can’t keep his hands off her either.
Five Facts about Maxx
1.) I had the idea about a grouchy mechanic and hiring an assistant off the internet for 4 years. I’ve drafted scenes and set them aside until the right inspiration struck. That came with the picture of Nelson on that motorcycle. I had to blink and make sure I was seeing it right because he was the Maxx in my head. I messaged my PA and told her I was on to something. Maxx was now shouting in my head and his book was born. I’ve been dying to share him ever since.
2.) This is the first indie published book that I have ever completed with final editing done over 2 months in advance of release. Everyone can blame my PA for refusing to allow me to press publish back then.
3.) Maxx was always going to ride a motorcycle – Harley or Indian. Indian won out in the end because of the history. But originally, he was going to own a bar. The photograph inspired to bring his love of all things mechanical to his everyday life.
4.) Charlynn is based on someone I met briefly. She was funny and said “easy peasy” a lot which made me laugh. I added in a few more sayings, a headful of red hair, a heaping helping of sass and Charly was born.
5.) The first chapters were entirely scrapped. Once Charly started to really talk in my head she informed me she would in no way put up with the shit that was happening at the start of the book without a fight. I let her loose and her retaliation stunts with the super of her building were classic. At times I was laughing so hard I could barely see the page in front of me. The hockey stick and the mouse incidents were my favorite. It set her up as the strong, feisty woman I wanted her to be. That Maxx needed her to be.

I think a favorite blue collar hero, at least from recent reads would be Griffin in Drive Me Wild by Melanie Harlow. That is…if I can’t say Maxx?
Maxx and Charly so much love for these two. They are my favorite characters of Melanie’s. Charly’s sayings are funny. The chemistry between these two is like adding a sparked match to wood.
Thanks for the chance 💕🤗 Duane Winston – Penny Reid Winston Brothers series.
My favorite grouchy hero is Griffin Shipley in “Bittersweet” by Sarina Bowen. He runs his family’s farm in Vermont.
My fav is Jericho Barrons from KMM fever series
Loved Mariana Zapata’s Dex Locke.
Love when a writer has the female character be funny and strong. Can’t wait to read what develops between Maxx and Charles.
