Life has taken on some major changes for the Crew and in this newest installment has Kayla and Dave in the hot seat with Grind. 

 

Change is happening all around the crew and as they are trying to adapt they seem to be getting hit harder. A horrible fire has claimed Kayla’s beloved Bare Natural Resort as its own, learning herself and Dave without a home.  Kayla is not herself while dealing with the loss of her home and dream, the sting of Crew members away in Middletown has hit her hard. Kayla is the definition of calm and this series of events is on the verge of breaking this peaceful woman. Is their bond stretched too thin? Can the crew help heal some of these wounds? Is it time for a change?  Is the Grind of it all too much. 

 

Kayla and Dave are my favorites of the crew. Kayla is so centered and usually so at peace with herself. It was very hard to see her struggling the way she did. It just goes to prove that even the strongest, what seem like most centered people can even lose it. Dave is always so supportive and caring. His willingness is always swoon worthy. Kayla rides a frantic emotional ride within the pages of Grind. With the help of her devoted husband and an unwavering bond of her people, the entire crew takes another step into the next chapter of their lives.

Change is never easy whether it be good or bad. The power tools crew is showing us firsthand the roller coaster ride of emotions that can come when change happens to people that are bonded in more ways than most. 

 

Kate and Mike, the couple that started it all, are the main focus of Drilled. Mike is not just their Forman, lover and leader, he carries the voice of reason In many aspects and always lends willing hand to any of the crew in need. When an accident happens on Joe’s new crew in Middletown and he feels the weight of the world on his shoulders he calls the one man that will give it to him straight and will understand. Mike! 

 

Mike heads to Middletown a few days early to help Joe and soon realizes why Joe was so torn with his recent decisions. Kate informs Mike of a change coming and the emotions just continue from there. Whether they be all in one room or miles apart the crew will always be the crew. Bonds tighter than tighter, emotional intimacy and a family beyond blood. Then a tragedy hit home causing the crew parts on extremely emotional terms, yet in the height of this tragedy a new opportunity just may be on the rise.

 

Drilled is an emotional and sexy tale of the Crew continuing their lives and the changes that face this bonded group. Surprises come in many shapes and forms and Drilled is another enjoy part of their journey.

Powertools: The Original Crew Returns Book 1

Kindle Edition
Expected publication: June 16th 2020 by Happy Endings Publishing

The original Powertools crew is back in a brand new series!

Joe has it all–a gorgeous wife, two amazing children, four best friends who are also sometimes lovers, and a booming construction business. He never expected to face some sort of midlife crisis. But somehow, he finds himself longing for even more.

How can he tell his family and the rest of the crew that he wishes they could be closer to his Uncle Tom and the rest of the Hot Rods and Hot Rides gangs?

An emergency crew meeting turns into a steamy attempt to show Joe exactly what he’d be missing out on if he left the crew and their polyamourous lifestyle behind. Will it work? Will he listen to his heart or parts of him below the belt? Either way, he’s screwed.

This is a standalone book set in the Powertools universe. All your favorite Hot Rods and Hot Rides characters will be making appearances as well. Some come make new book boyfriends or hang out with old ones.

The Crew is back and as sexy as ever.

Jayne Rylon gives us readers a new and emotional Powertools story. Joe is torn between wanting to be closer to his blood relatives while not wanting to leave behind the family he has made. My heart hurt for Joe in so many ways. Finding it hard to talk about and doesn’t wanting to hurt anyone in the process. His love Morgan reminds him what family is and sharing what’s on his mind with her and the crew will help. Joe does just that, confides in his best friends, his crew, his family.

Joe learns quickly that the family he builds through friendship and love is a bond stronger than he realizes. With his trusted foreman in lead, the crew reminds Joe just what it is to be part of the family they built together. Screwed is a sexy and emotional visit with the Powertools crew. I loved all emotions throughout the story. Wanting something, changing your life and going for it are all big steps but with the support of the crew at their back, there is nothing at can’t be accomplished.

I so enjoyed the emotional and super hot visit with Joe, Morgan and the crew. Screwed is a fantastic quickie afternoon read.
