Slow Grind by Missy Johnson & Ashley Suzanne *~*~*~*~*~* Blog Tour, Review & Giveaway


Slow Grind

by Missy Johnson & Ashley Suzanne 
Publication Date: October 24, 2016 
Genres: New Adult, Contemporary, Romance


I’m the kind of guy who will do anything for a friend, so when my best mate, Max, gets sick I naturally want to help. He needs money for experimental treatment overseas and he needs it fast. So I round up the guys with an idea to raise the cash for him. Stripping. Chicks love that shit, right? At first, the guys are skeptical, but we’re a good looking group of men who who’ve been known to bust out a dance move or two, so we decide to go for it. When Max offers his kid sister up for choreography, I think, great. We can use all the help we can get. The last time I saw Aubrey she was a loudmouthed twelve-year-old who wouldn’t leave me alone. Now, she’s twenty and possibly the sexiest woman I’ve ever laid eyes on. Max has made it clear that his sister is off limits to me, because apparently, I have a reputation. He says he has enough to worry about without me chasing his sister. Fine, I can respect that. But I’m not sure she can.


I Heart Books Review

Slow Grind by Missy Johnson & Ashley Suzanne
Review by Theresa Esterline
Stars: 5

Outrageously funny and yet tragic at the same time...

Great sibling/best friend romance, based in Australia. You will laugh, cry, get mad, be pissed (American use here), etc. Who knew "stripping for a cure" would be so easy? If only it were one of those radio game shows or before and after on wheel of fortune it would be called Thunder Down Under the Weather... Never have I wanted to be and not to be the lead character so much. Can't wait for the next book to see what happens to Drew, Aubrey, Max, and the other guys!! And now a bit about the story...

Aubrey's brother Max is her hero. He's watched out for her like any good big brother, but now he has cancer. That isn't supposed to happen to teenagers. Though his friends and family help him through it, especially the handsome Andrew, the stress is just too much and their parents divorce. Fast forward 10 years and little Aubrey is all grown up living in the States with her dad. She still has the school girl crush on Andrew, but is past it mostly. Until she gets the call. Max is sick again. 

Favorite passages:
- I’ve come to accept there are going to be people who don’t care for me,
- “I was resting my eyes, little sister. I wasn’t resting my ears.”
- “If it’s meant to be, then it will be.”

Sorry, I mean adorable children.
