TITLE : BANG GANG
AUTHOR : JADE WEST
GENRE : CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
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 pimping himself out to anyone who’ll pay good money for it.
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 whoring himself out. Oh no. Darren Trent pimps himself out 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 a five-mechanic sandwich.
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?

Living in imaginary realities and having a legitimate excuse for it is really all she’s ever wanted.
Jade is as dirty as you’d expect from her novels, and talking smut makes her smile.
She lives in the Herefordshire countryside with a couple of hounds and a guy who’s able to cope with her inherent weirdness.
She has a red living room, decorated with far more zebra print than most people could bear and fights a constant battle with her addiction to Coca-Cola.
Darren & Jodie are stuff that will make your romance dreams come true. Darren Trent is every woman's dream while Jodie is the innocent and hardworking heroine that all women can identify with. This story will entertain you, as it did me and will draw you in. It has hot sex, chemistry, angst, passion and emotional battles. Only Ms. West can write a story like this- Knowing that the ex-boyfriend (Darren) is a male gigolo who offers his services to horny women and he has gotten together with this nasty bit of goods woman named Lorraine and they end up going into business and that business is servicing women at his garage alongside his 4 trusty mechanics, hence the Bang Gang. What looks like a book to be able horny women transcends about the relationship between Darren and his ex, Jodie and their history. Its emotional, deep and passionate and filled with a lot of angst. What past relationship isn’t? They have two beautiful daughters but their relationship has gone thru these ups and downs…when Jodie finds out about his side business, she is livid and hurt. The story starts off one way but goes thru this metamorphosis on Trent and Jodie’s love story and how they overcome the barriers that prevented them from being together…and one of those was a villain so vile, I hated this person. Oh this villain was slick and composed but underneath, was so nasty and icky, I wanted to smack this person several times. Trent and Jodie had to work on their relationship and while they did that, their sex was hot. You weren’t expecting them to abstain from sex, right? Oh honey, Jade West knows how to put some hot and heavy sex in her books but also knows how to write some fantastic and great emotional angst with a great plot and that is what Bang Gang is. I love the supporting cast but the MC are fantastic, the only thing is I would have liked to see them a year or so down the road on how they were doing if I had to think of one criticism.
My rating: 4.5 stars ****
