From the USA Today and Internationally bestselling author of The Club Series, Lauren Rowe, comes a sexy standaloneromantic comedy: Ball Peen Hammer.
Keane Morgan wouldn’t return any of my calls or texts, and I was pissed as hell about it. I didn’t want to drive from Seattle to L.A. with the guy any more than he wanted to drive with me, but I had no frickin’ choice in the matter--at least, not if I wanted to use his brother Dax’s coveted parking spot at UCLA.
Okay, so it turned out Keane was objectively gorgeous, and, fine, pretty funny, too. But did he have to be so damned in love with himself? I mean, jeez, the cocky way he flashed those dimples was just so orchestrated. And, honestly, what kind of guy uses the phrase “baby doll” with a straight face? Oh, that’s right: the kind of guy who’s a male stripper.
Yup, the cocky jerk turned out to be Seattle’s answer to Magic Mike, a stripper known as “Ball Peen Hammer”--which meant Keane Morgan was emphatically not the kind of guy I’d ever fall for.
Not. At. All.
No freakin’ way.
Well, until Keane convinced me to fall for him, that is.
Which I did.
Ball Peen Hammer is a full-length, standalone sexy romantic comedy about Keane Morgan (one of four Morgan brothers introduced in The Club Series) and Maddy Milliken (the little sister of Hannah Banana Montana Milliken).
Although Keane and Maddy’s love story is set in the universe of The Club Series, it is a standalone novel with no cliffhanger and no prior reading required. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
Review by Lorena
The best romantic comedy I read this year, by far!
Lauren Rowe really had me rolling with laughter with this book and I have to say it was freaking fantastic. The banter between Maddy and Ball Peen was just out of this world crazy shit style.
I don't think I've ever, and I mean EVER laughed that hard in my life reading a book and it has been considered THE BEST READ this year in comedy.
I now walk around the house using his trademark sayings and my daughter laughs at me every time lol!
Ball Peen is a smokin' hot male stripper and he knows it too. He has the body, the moves and damn he can make a woman squirm. He doesn't take women seriously and loves what he does and loves to enjoy his life and have casual encounters with MILF's (ha)! He and his best friend and roommate, which he calls his wife by the way are just freaking hilarious together. But oh my gosh, I just can't stop laughing as I'm writing.
When Ball Peen and Maddy are paired together to have a little road trip from Seattle to Los Angeles without knowing each other, it just becomes the road trip of a lifetime.
Their friendship has evolved to a little more than friendship in a span of three days and they both know it, but Mr. Hammer knows Maddy is forbidden. His brother has strictly prohibited him from making any moves on her and that's weighing on him heavily because Keane (Ball Peen) is starting to feel more for this girl than he wished to.
Maddy is not the casual sex type of girl, she is a relationship type of girl. She had one serious relationship that left her heartbroken and ever since then she has had boyfriends but nothing serious. It was hard for her to get over him but it seems like Keane is the one breaking down her walls and she's starting to fall for him even though she knows that's a big bad idea.
You need to read this book because I can guarantee you that you will absolutely LOVE it!
Hands down, one of the best reads in 2016 for me!!
5 AMAZING stars!
