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?

When reading anything from Jade West you expect dirty, and Bang Gang is definitely dirty but not to the extent that we are used to with Jade's stories. While I did miss it, I did not feel it took anything away from the story. There was many things I loved about the story. I loved Trents relationship and dedication to his girls. I really enjoyed the fact that Trent and Jo was older. It had an engaging plot, a bit of mystery, love and angst . It's one of those books that you don't mind losing sleep over.
Darren Trent and Jodie Symmonds have a history and that includes two daughters Mia and Ruby. While I loved Trent and Jo I do believe Ruby stole the show. She is Trents little mimi me and will definitely put a smile on your face.
Darren and Jo have been seperated for many years. Somewhere along the way Jo has lost herself. But when word is out around town that the father of her children is running a gigolo service with four of his mechanic from his shop. Jo takes on a transformation and begins to redescover the woman she once was.
This is a story about love, family, and rediscovering yourself. I love a good second chance romance and Jade West hit the mark with this one.
The only fault I selfishly had with this story was I found the backstory to be lacking. While we do get a taste of Trent and Jo's backstory I do wish it would have been a little more indepth.
Overall I really enjoyed the story and I am hoping for stories from the four other sweaty mechanics.
