Product Description

A sexy contemporary romance with a woman who has ignored what she wanted and the smoldering hero who will open her eyes to everything she could have...

Rev me up...

On a stormy night in Portland, Oregon, cynical ad exec Lily Bishop crashes into a stunning classic car driven by a dark, handsome stranger with strong hands. His powerful touch makes her remember old dreams she thought she abandoned twenty years ago. Back then, she traded her MFA in photography for a lucrative advertising position that twists people’s deepest desires into just another data point.

0 to 60, baby...

Though he’s struggling to take his hot rods to the big time, mechanic Raine Reyes won’t accept help from anyone -- certainly not an uptown woman like Lily whose miles-wide reckless streak brings out the repressed bad boy in him. He knows he should run from her offer to be the new face of her next expensive advertising campaign, but he’s too tempted… by her. He sees right through her to the forgotten needs, the neglected fantasies, and the woman she always wanted to be.

Warning: Contains sex and lifestyle scenes for adventurous adult readers only.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hot cougar romance! 22 October 2014
By Christina - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Complimentary copy provided by the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Lily is in her early forties, an advertising executive living in Portland. She is good at what she does; however she can’t help but feel that something is missing in her life. She is single, previously having a friends with benefits type of arrangement with colleague turned competitor Fitzpatrick Boone. When the book opens she is pitching a new ad campaign to Arebella, the spoiled rich girl who needs no last name. The campaign could be a huge win to the agency and while Lily is confident in her abilities, she isn’t particularly confident in her ability to work with Arebella.

Raine is in his mid-twenties and is the owner of his own garage, where he works restoring classic cars. When he makes the acquaintance of Lily one night, by hitting her on her bike in his car, his world is rocked by the tall, shapely woman. He brings her back to the garage in order to help her clean up and to assess the damage to her bike. It is there that the sexual tension between the two ramps up and Lily does something completely uncharacteristic, she has hot sex with Raine on his desk.

Raine is not the type to do relationships and Lily can’t really see herself with a man that is over fifteen years her junior, however there is no denying the chemistry between the two. When Lily accidentally sends photos of Raine to Arebella, the client whose project she is currently working on, Arebella is interested in Raine to be the face of her new clothing line. Lily convinces him to take advantage of the opportunity, as it can help him with the income and recognition needed to really get his auto restoration business off the ground.

Raine helps to convince Lily that her current career is not her dream, and she is losing herself in the day-to-day drudgery of not pursuing her creative side as the photographer she once aspired to be. When she takes test shots of Raine for the ad campaign, it becomes apparent that Lily indeed has a gift, and with Raine’s urging, she stops to reflect on what would most make her happy and how to go from there.

As the relationship with Raine heats up, Fitz decides to insert himself back into Lily’s life. There’s no denying the appeal Fitz has to Lily, especially given they are the same age and work in the same field. When Lily is forced to choose between the two men, she has to ask herself if she wants to take a chance with the younger Raine and follow the dreams she has always had as a photographer, or continue on the same path with the safe bet, Fitz. The scene in which the entire book is building to is hot, hot, hot! I won’t give away any spoilers, but if you’re a fan of ménage, this scene does not disappoint!

Inspire Me was a fast, easy read that is well written with interesting characters that have depth. It’s nice, for once, to see a May/December romance in which the woman is the older party, without the desperation that comes with the title of “cougar”. While Lily often times doubts her relationship with Raine, she is still strong enough to realize that she is worthy of the relationship and is willing to open her heart and mind to pursuing a future with him. My biggest grievance with the book though is that I am not a fan of instalove kind of books. I understand instant attraction, however I have a hard time buying falling in love immediately. This is the first in the series and I’m definitely looking forward to more!

<I received this as an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review>

Raine Reyes is a HOT bad boy. I loved this SUPER HOT book. I think I burned up the screen of my kindle with this book. It was just that scorching. I read it in one setting because I. Could. Not. Put. It. Down. I wanted to know all about Raine.

Raine and Lily do not waste any time getting right down the nitty-gritty. I love that in a book. Raine knows what he wants just like most Alpha male character’s do. Lily is unsure of herself and which direction she would like her life to go. When Lily meets Raine all bets are off. We have a somewhat forbidden romance because of age difference. There is an ex-boyfriend that still has feelings for Lily and Raine wants what is his, Lily. The three of them have a mind-blowing experience that will question all of Lily’s motives for the future and she must make a decision on what she wants. Will it be Fitzpatrick or Raine? Read to find out.

This book is mildly angsty. Lily gets stuck on the fact that she has worked so hard to make a better life for herself but she does not realize that so has Raine. At times she thinks she is better than Raine. He straightens her out. The book was a refreshing read. It does have the boy meets girl and they hit it off instantly but the way they meet and what happens to their relationship takes you on some twists and turns. Lovely twists and turns.

I did feel the ending was a little rushed and left me wanting a little more. Then I realized there would be another installment in this series. I CANNOT WAIT!!! You can read this book as a stand-alone.

This is my first book by Jenna Dale and believe me it will not be my last. I would recommend this book to all of you lovers of Erotic Romance.


“What do you mean by ‘your woman’?” The hesitation in her voice almost killed him. He nuzzled her hair. “You smell like me,” he murmured. “You taste like me. Pretty sure that makes you mine.” – Raine

“I was so bus selling myself to everyone else, I forgot to sell myself to you, to convince you you needed me” – Fitzpatrick

“You saw something in me where no one else has. Hell, when even I didn’t. You make me believe I can do anything. You’re my dream, Lily, and every step I take, I want it to be closer to you.” – Raine
3.0 out of 5 stars Didn't INSPIRE ME but it sure did impress me.. 29 April 2014
By Sarah @ A Weebish Book Blog - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
When I first started this story, I didn’t think it would live up to it’s sexy cover. The first couple of chapters were a little bland, but thankfully, I enjoyed INSPIRE ME more than I thought I would. However, there were a couple of things about this novel that I think the author and the publisher probably forgot to warn us about -- but really should have.

A) In one scene, Lily and Raine unapologetically participate in the use of illegal recreational drugs. For me, this wasn’t a deal breaker. I’ve stumbled on quite a few taboo subjects in the search for fun reading material, and the smoking of pot is nowhere near as offensive as a few of them. For another reader this might not be the case, so it’s good to let the public know before they spend money on your literature.

B) There’s a random threesom* scene thrown in -- SURPRISE! I know, I was shocked, too. Usually, I’m warned beforehand. Don’t get me wrong, it was freakin’ hot and I definitely enjoyed it, but, again, probably a good thing to warn someone about before they buy your book. (You know, for the sake of covering your butt.)

***Received an ARC of this book from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review***

Overall Rating: 3 Rockin’ ★★★

Inspire Me: A Hot Rod Novel by Jenna Dales is contemporary romance story about a 41 year-old advertising executive, Lily Bishop, and a 24 year-old mechanic/garage owner, Raine Reyes. I was really interested in the beginning and fell in love with the ruggedly sexy Raine. There were times the story felt rushed and underdeveloped. I really wanted more…and the ending left me even more frustrated. It just ended without explanation. I'm not sure if that is because there will be another book or not.
