Maxximum Enjoyment was had!

I stumbled across this book in a facebook group and they said it was a bit like a Claire Kingsley book I loved. This book definitely delivered the Grumpy Sunshine goodness I was looking for and more!

The set up was clever and the whole book was steamy, sweet, and fun. I loved the found family aspects and the low angst of the romance. I loved seeing the hero learn to trust again and the heroine win him over was so wonderful.

Charly & Maxx’s chemistry is OFF THE CHARTS and SWOONY!!

I. Loved. Every. Minute. Of. This. Book. It will make you laugh, cry, think, hold your breath, cringe in parts, scream, and laugh again. It’s so well written and will definitely tug at your heartstrings. Revved to the Maxx is angsty and MESMERIZING! The banter, the heat, the push and pull, and back and forth between Charly & Maxx is OFF THE CHARTS and HELLA SWOONY!! A great love story with a strong heroine and heart-stoppingly delicious, grumpy hero. Maxine Mitchell & John Lane do an amazing job portraying the characters, bringing them to life and humanizing them with their emotions, attitude and personality. They do more than giving their characters their voices, they fall into the roles and become the character.

A High Octane Ride

Revved to the Maxx is a solid grumpy/sunshine trope, but it does lack any real emotional depth.

Sometimes life brings you what you need

Charly and Maxx were at low points in their lives. He needed a girl Friday, she needed a safe place to land. They both had rollercoaster to find their HEA, just buckle up and enjoy the ride.

Revved

Revved to the Maxx was light, fun and oh so steamy. Maxx and Charly have so much chemistry and try fighting it at every turn. I love how Charly is a spunky ray of sunshine compared to Maxx’s grumpy demeanor. It makes for laughs and lots of tension and eventually they can’t resist the other and the pages heat up. The narration was enjoyable and brought Melanie’s characters to life with enthusiasm.

Grumpy sunshine delight!

Revved to the Maxx has long been on my TBR and with the upcoming release of more in this series, I knew now was the time to grab it! This sweet story drew me in right at the start! It was everything I love in a romance - sweet, steamy, with likable characters, and a storyline that stays engaging. I loved the grumpy-sunshine dynamic between Maxx and Charly and how their relationship came together. I always get the warm fuzzies when two characters meet and don’t know that they are what the other needs.

The hits keep coming for Charly. She loses her job, her roommate moves out stealing everything of value, and her creepy landlord is threatening. Desperate for a way out with no job prospects, she sees an ad for a job out of town and snags it. On her way, she stops in one town over and grabs a bite to eat. She meets a man in the bar that she can’t keep her eyes off of. They end up spending the night together. Maxx is desperate for help. He places a somewhat poorly worded ad for help, which is accepted by Charly, who he thinks is a guy. When Maxx meets Charly to take “him” back to his shop, he’s shocked to see that Charly is not only a girl but also the girl he spent the night with.

This amazing story had a steamy beginning that just got better from there. I loved Maxx’s fierce protectiveness over Charly and Charly’s need to help Maxx live again. He is completely blindsided by the tenacious girl who turns his life back right side up. She is the sunshine to his grump and her dialogue is superb! There is a lot of light humor in this book that balances out some of the plot elements that could make the story seem heavy. The book moves right along from start to finish in a love story that will make you smile, fan your face, and wish for more – which is kind of perfect since 2 more stories are turning this one into a series! Who will fall in love next??

John Lane and Maxine Mitchell superbly bring this story to life. John does the perfect grump and Maxine has long been my favorite for exasperated and strong female characters. She can add the perfect amount of frustration to a scene that takes you right into the character’s head! Grab this one in audio for a treat!

A real believable story

I loved both of the characters so much. They were fun and funny and the kind of people you can’t help but like. Just enough cat and mouse and very hot sex. The whole clothes issue was hilarious. One of my favorite books.

Wow!

Oh my goodness! This is a great book. It’s entertaining, funny, quirky. It features a grumpy, sexy hero, a sassy heroine who keeps the grumpy hero on his toes. There’s never a boring part, it’s page after page of good and fun conversations, lessons one can learned and so much more. This is an amazing book, highly recommend it.

Loved it - Great story and great narration

As I have come to expect from a book from Melanie Moreland, Revved To The Max was well written with characters whose story you cannot help but become invested in. This is Maxx Reynolds and C. L Hooper’s (aka Charly, Charlynn, Red) story. The narration by John Lane and Maxine Mitchell certainly brought the story to life for me. I could listen to them for hours without needing a break.

When Maxx places an add for an assistant, he had no idea that by doing that he is about to change his life in ways he doesn’t expect. He has no idea that the Charly he hired on line is in fact a stunning and gorgeous woman. The chemistry that sizzles between them is so hot that I could almost feel myself bursting into flames.

Charly is such a strong, sassy, feisty woman and I loved her, Max is totally swoon worthy even if he is a little rough around the edges. Charly wants Maxx, the only question is can she convince Maxx to take a chance on them?

The secondary characters were entertaining and added an additional layer to my enjoyment. The banter between them is fun, their is so much humour that I felt like I had a permanent smile on my face. There was some angst, love and romance and all in all I was riveted from the first to the last chapter.

5 easy-peasy stars!!

Freakin' ADORED this story! It was funny, hot AF, and completely sucked me in.

Gaaahhh!! This was such an ADDICTIVE read/listen! Maxx is the epitome of grumpy. He's stern and growly, yet OMG hella hot!! He doesn't trust easily yet he really looks after the people he cares about. I loved how Charly got under his skin. Her sweet and sassy ways amused him, her efficiency and intelligence impressed him, and her kindness touched him. She breathed life and love into his bitter heart. She was such a ray of sunshine and just so gosh-dang-it adorable! She came to bring order to his messy life but she unknowingly blew it apart and showed him what it was like to be happy again.

This was such a fabulous feel-good, sexy read. I'm so glad it came to audio so I could do a re-read of it. I thought John Lane was perfect as Maxx - he sounded exactly how Maxx sounded in my head. I loved Maxine Mitchell's voice and her delivery - she did the male voices really well, too. The two of them brought this story to life and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The steamy scenes made me hot under the collar, and the funny scenes made me laugh. Such a fab audio!

simply enjoyable

It was lovely to have a nice story to just relax and enjoy. I listened to book in another of the author's series...Bentley. I liked it so thought I'd try this one. It's a lot of small town life tied up with a HEA.
The pace is medium the dialogue quirky and the heroine sassy. Really loved the storyline.
And of course John lane as the male narrator just leaves me weak at the knees. He's so gritty and raspy....perfect for Max. And maxine mitchell is always a go to for me. Nice steam, romance and a tad of angst. Loved it

Loved this story

A sexy growly tall alpha male and an intelligent redhead with loads sass = plenty of sizzle, swoony moments and entertaining banter. An easy enjoyable listen, plenty of laugh out loud moments and hot and steamy sexy times
