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.

Any additional comments?

I've literally just put Ball Peen Hammer down and holy majoly this is one book you are going to want to read!!

I'm a MAHOOSIVE fan of Lauren Rowe and started this book knowing it was going to be awesome but it exceeded my expectations! It was fantabulous!!

If you have indulged in The Club series you will know a little about the characters that you meet in Ball Peen Hammer! It revolves around Keane Morgan aka Peen aka Ball Peen Hammer the list goes on ha ha and Maddy Milliken who is seriously adorbsicles! I fell in love with both these characters instantly – they are the type of people you would want to have in your inner circle of friends! The craic in this book was off the scale to put it mildly! The story introduces you to each of them and follows their journey together on the way to Los Angeles, then continues from there! There are some other awesome characters you come across too!! (I've really got to find me a wifey like Zander).

The chemistry between Maddy and Keane was off the scale and how they bounced off each other was an absolute pleasure to read! Lauren Rowe you are a fricking genius!! Do not be fooled, although the first half of this book has the best banter and craic I have ever read before - never mind the Laurensims popping out and blowing my mind at every turn of a page - the second half of this book is going to give you THAT heart beating feeling you get, like you are literally melting reading about two people together. This book has all the FEELS.

I laughed so hard while reading this book, I cried at one part and had the warm fuzzy feeling at another - Lauren is an amazing author in that respect, she can go from writing the funniest scenes you have ever read to the gut wrenching ones that make you cry! So many times during the book did I have a “moment” where I thought this author is something special!

The sexy scenes between Keane and Maddy where HAWT!!! You may need to spray someone reading this book with some water to calm them down 😜 I would also suggest that there should be a warning that accompanies this book regarding horny ladies ha ha!

Lauren's writing as usual flows effortlessly, drawing you into the tale and keeping you hostage until the end. Only because I had little people to feed and look after did I put the book down! I cannot give this book enough praise and stress how much everybody needs a bit of Peen in their lives!

If you want to be a handsome and happy chap all the livelong day then you must must must read this book!!! It will blow your mind!

6 amazeball stars!!
