Title: LANCE (Roughnecks, #3)

Author: Chelsea Camaron

Release Date: May 15, 2015




Value, worth—these are things I don’t have. College degree, great job—none of that matters if you look in the mirror and can’t find anything to love.

Structure, dedication, and determination are the traits that Candace Jones has survived and thrived on. When no one cares at home, it takes her self-drive to push and work her way through college. Life is funny while you’re growing up, and adulthood isn’t any easier than childhood. Little girl dreams are often destroyed before they can even begin.

Lance ‘Rush’ Miller works hard and plays even harder. He lives life from one adrenaline rush to the next, from working as a roughneck to trick riding his street bike. He has it made and knows it.

What happens when firm resolve crashes into wild abandon? Two complete opposites are thrown together when Candace finds herself in need of a quick escape that Lance is all too willing to give her.




I received an ARC of this book from Between The Sheets Promotions in exchange for an honest review.

I like books that have a subtly underlying moral story other than the fact that it’s a romance novel. In this short novella, the heroine is an insecure fat girl who has never been appreciated and has been attacked by her mother ever since she was young. The hero is a nice man who has seen his own mother settle for jerks and losers instead of finding a good man.

I like that the book shows that real men appreciate a woman for herself, her mind, her heart, not her body. Oh, sure, it must be so nice to have a hot body, but it does not mean every must have a hot body and that whoever doesn’t have it are less than the ones who do.

Also, real men are not the ones who love curvy women. I mean, you can be a real man and still prefer the skinny models or the hot babes than a full figured girl. It’s okay. What makes it not okay is when a man makes a woman feel less of herself because of her body. Fat or not, sexy or overweight, a woman is a woman and should be appreciated. Whether you prefer one body type to another is up to you. But a man should never play on a woman’s emotions.

The rest of the story was a bit rushed and some of the scenes were too unrealistic for me. However, this story has a good message, so, in my book, this is labeled as a good one. I think all books from this series are good. This one right here just happens to be a lighter, easier read.

About the Author

Chelsea Camaron - author

Chelsea Camaron was born and raised in Coastal North Carolina. She currently resides in Southern Louisiana with her husband and two children but her heart is always Carolina day dreaming.

Chelsea always wanted to be a writer, but like most of us, let fear of the unknown grab a hold of her dream. She realized that if she was going to tell her daughter to go for her dreams, that it was time to follow her own advice.

Chelsea grew up turning wrenches alongside her father, and from that grew her love for old muscle cars and Harley Davidson motorcycles, which just so happened to inspire the Love and Repair and Hellions Ride series.

When she is not spending her days writing you can find her playing with her kids, attending car shows, going on motorcycle rides on the back of her husband’s Harley, snuggling down with her new favorite book or watching any movie that Vin Diesel might happen to be in.
