He'll rev her up and drive her to the edge...

Rusty West swore she was done with men. Instead, she channeled her passion into West Restoration, the car shop she runs with her best friend and sister. But Rusty's aloof composure fades when the owner of the competition comes striding into her shop, over six feet of sexy, rough-edged confidence...hot enough to send Rusty's motor into overdrive.

Reid Parker worked his ass off to get what he wants - and what he wants is West Restoration and its crew. He never expected to find a shop of all-female mechanics...or the stunning redhead who ignites a lust that threatens his cool. But Reid plays carefully. He never, ever gets involved with a woman beyond one night.

And no matter how hot the sparks, Rusty will never compromise her business for a man...

It’s so great to be here on your blog! Thanks so much for helping me celebrate the release of REVVED!

What are you most proud of accomplishing so far in your life?
After being the mother of two pretty  amazing kids, I’d have to say persevering in this business. Writing is tough, but I love it. I can’t imagine doing anything else!
How has your upbringing influenced your writing?
There were no boys in my family, just me and my sister, so I decided to fill the void I was positive my father had in his life lol. I fancied myself a bit of a tomboy for a while there. That part of my life has definitely influenced the personalities of the women on Axle Alley!
When and why did you begin writing?
I started writing six years ago, after devouring every romance novel on my sister’s bookshelf. Then I bought a Kindle and kept on devouring books. Soon I had all these stories floating around in my head and decided I should write one myself! Um…yeah, it wasn’t quite as easy as I thought.
Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?
When did you first know you could be a writer? 
When I sat down and wrote that very first sentence. Oh, I sucked…badly. But I knew I wanted it enough to work at it until I didn’t suck anymore.
What inspires you to write and why?
So many things—music, books, TV shows. The why is easy. Writing is my passion. I can’t not write.
What genre are you most comfortable writing?
Contemporary and paranormal romance. I love both genres.
What inspired you to write your first book?
My obsession with romance novels :)
Who or what influenced your writing once you began?
When I first started out, I was writing paranormal. I’d say Sherrilyn Kenyon and her Dark Hunter series was a definite influence on me to start with.
What do you consider the most challenging about writing a novel, or about writing in general?
For me, every book is an emotional rollercoaster. That can be very draining at times.
Did writing this book teach you anything and what was it?
I learn something new with every book I write. I’m learning all the time.
Do you intend to make writing a career?
Absolutely! I write full-time, and can’t ever imagine doing anything else.
What is your greatest strength as a writer? 
What is your favorite quality about yourself?
See above! :)
What is your least favorite quality about yourself?
My tendency to procrastinate!

Sherilee’s always had a big (some may say warped) imagination, and as a kid scared herself conjuring up horror stories full of ghosts and other terrifying creatures. As she got older the stories changed quite a bit, but they were always there. Still, she never dreamed of actually writing down any of those wonderful imaginary people or places. Not until many years later when her sister introduced her to the wondrous world of romance novels, and her very large book collection.

She’s pleased to say, she still has the big imagination… only now her characters are chasing their happily ever after.

Sherilee Gray is a kiwi girl and lives in beautiful New Zealand with her husband and their two children. When she isn't writing sexy, edgy contemporary romance or fueling her voracious book addiction, she can be found dreaming of far off places with a mug of tea in one hand and a bar of Cadburys Rocky Road chocolate in the other.
