Book Description:

It’s one thing knowing your ex-boyfriend is a bit of a player, but it’s another thing altogether to find out he’s offering his services to anyone who’ll pay good money for them.

Not just himself, either. That would be far too regular for Darren Trent.

Darren Trent – my teenage sweetheart and father to my two young girls – is not just putting himself up for sale.. Oh no. Darren Trent offers his escort services alongside four of his mechanic friends – all of them at the same time.

Five hot, sweaty mechanics at your service.

They call themselves the Bang Gang… you can imagine.

In a village our size I should keep my head down and hope the scandal blows over before the girls or my poor old Nanna catch wind of it.

Only it’s not blowing over. Far from it. It seems every woman in the village wants themselves some mechanic action.

They make no qualms about it, either. Just rock on up to my café counter and ask how they can book themselves in for a Bang Gang special. Like I would know.

I definitely wouldn’t know. I hardly even know Darren Trent anymore. We split up a lifetime ago.

I definitely don’t think about him late at night. Don’t think about five mechanics and me as much as every other woman in this village.

And even if I did, I wouldn’t act on it. I wouldn’t draw the money from my savings account and have a go for myself.

And even if I did that, I definitely, definitely wouldn’t fall for him. Not again. Not after everything we went through. Not after splitting up the first time nearly brought me to my knees.

Not after settling into a decent routine, the girls and me, with no drama, no heartbreak, no crazy passions to rock the calm little boat we’re sailing on.

I mean, who would be stupid enough to risk all that over a hot, sweaty, oily bit of rough like Darren Trent?

Just look at that synopsis! A book about a single mom and a five-some of mechanics who perform gang bangs for pocket money? There was literally no way I could resist this one; it hit catnip I didn’t even know I had. I couldn’t even look at the title without giggling, and it made me really happy to explain to everyone what I was reading. Come on, BANG GANG. Genius.

Jodie and Trent were high school sweethearts who had two babies when they were young and stupid, and are now living separate but entwined lives. The tiny Welsh village they have lived in forever is no place for keeping secrets, Jodie works at a local cafe and Trent owns a garage. No one can put a foot out of line without the whole village knowing by mid day, but somehow Trent has been hiding his thriving side business from Jodie for years.

Mechanic by day, deliverer of housewife fantasies by night. Trent and the four guys who work with him offer gang bangs for $400 dollars a pop, which is a real bargain in this, Our Year of the Lord 2016. And they’ve been doing it for years, no one the wiser. Until the boys fill every single one of the town gossip’s holes, and she decides to tell all of Jodie’s friends about it over Monday morning coffee with the girls. We all have that one friend — or maybe we are that one friend — who just can not keep her mouth shut. And now poor Jodie knows that her friend’s big mouth has been full of her ex’s pipe wrench.

At first, Jodie is enraged. It’s a small town and their daughters have to live there, SHE has to live there. She has to work in a cafe where the customers are asking her if she’s in charge of the orgy scheduling for Trent and Co. She’s spending her shifts pouring coffee and fending off inquiries like this:

“Let me know if you hear anything. I mean, if he has a website…”

Like he has a fucking website. Bang Gang – orgies on demand. 

I forced a smile. “I’ll be sure to let you know.”

 But, the more she thinks about it, she’s less angry and more intrigued. If all the other women in town are getting serviced, why can’t she? Its not like she’s not still attracted to her ex, and once upon a time, Jodie was a dirty girl. She misses being properly fucked, and she misses the girl she was before kids and work and caring for her grandma made her the girl who wears graying granny panties and whose makeup collection consists of a sole, sad, smashed lipstick.

Trent has been using the gang bangs to start a college fund for his daughters, which he keeps in a box under his bed, because even though he OWNS a real business I guess he doesn’t believe in banks? Jo is understandably not thrilled that this is how her ex plans to pay for the girls college:

“A university fund? From gangbang sex?”

 When Jodie gives herself a makeover, and starts to look and act like the girl he fell in love with, Trent finds himself losing interest in being the engineer of the Bang Gang train. In fact, the only group session he’s interested in is the one that Jodie wants to buy for herself, with the money her grandpa left her. The money came with strict instructions that it is to be used just for Jodie and only for once in a lifetime experiences. If a five mechanic deep gang bang does not meet those qualifications, I do not know what ever would. I can only hope I am one day in command of similar opportunities.

Trent reluctantly lets Jodie book a Wednesday night gang bang, but offers up his services pre-big show. You know, unselfishly, to make sure she’s in practice. The two have hot, dirty sex, that has them wondering where they stand. Not only are they still attracted to each other, they still have all these inconvenient feelings for each other. Suddenly Trent is unable to perform during business hours, and seething with jealousy at the thought of his partners thrusting inside his ex. Can they make it work the second time around, or is this just about getting his gear shaft oiled?

I went into this book fully expecting it to be a Bad Boy Daddy type read, I figured it would make me laugh, and be awful in the way I like best of all. But this book was actually pretty great. YES there are gang bangs (and thank goodness, because I would have thrown my kindle if the title was a tease. I paid 99cents to read about gang bangs thank you very much), but there is also a pretty sweet love story. I liked Jodie and Trent, and I liked Jodie’s brash best friend Tonya, who reminded me of our beloved Jess – who needs her own book – and I didn’t even get annoyed at their kids. Which I usually do. I have kids in real life, I ain’t need to read about them too. The villain was properly horrible, and the ending kept me turning pages to get to the very satisfying conclusion.

I’m giving Bang Gang a solid B. Lots of dirty sex, lots of good one liners, and a couple I actually ended up caring about. If this sounds at all like something you might be in to, give this book a try!
