Short Novellas really They were an ok getaway but the same story over and over. If you like a good girls and bad boy these are the ones for you. My self I like a little more story.

This is a collection of four short stories about four motorcycle riders that work at a motorcycle repair shop.  Each of them has their own issues with not wanting relationships / commitment - and yet, each of these men are tempted by a woman that seems to be "not their type".  I enjoyed these stories - they are easy to read, but I feel I also learned a lot throughout the stories - I had always heard of the Sturgis rally so I enjoyed that story; one crossed over into motor cross racing, and two dealt with motorcycle gangs.  These stories gave me an appreciation for those different topics.  I enjoyed the stories, but I wish they had followed the plots just a little longer - it seemed just as the story was getting good, it ended.

This collection was provided free in exchange for an honest review.  The opinions stated above are mine without biases.

Lazlo’s Dream Machines is a fabulous collection of stories set in the Laz’s custom workshop and depicting the lives of the staff who build these incredible machines. A love of fast, rumbling bikes and sexy, slow burn romances is what drew me to Tracey Cramer-Kelly’s world and her rag-tag pack of loveable mechanics. I thoroughly enjoyed every one of these tales and the character development and real-life scenarios that were easy to believe. I happily recommend this boxed set to lovers of moving fast and loving hard.

Some May Like

These were super short stories about guys who worked at a bike shop and loved their bikes. This series is more for those MC lovers who like their books on the softer side…it just wasn’t for me.

This is a great fun boxed set that is a collection of the four books in the dream machine series Each book is a total stand alone story with just the common factor of the garage where these beautiful machines are produced. The books flow well and keep you engaged with enough romance to make you heart flutter I will review each story separately

What can I say? I can't resist big bad bikerboys. Especially not, when they are all though on the outside and mushy on the inside. A bit like a marshmellow :-)
And with LazLo's Dream Machine I get four stories in one. Whoopie. I only forgot to check the number of pages before requesting. Because with 162 pages, it is not possible to have 4 stories with a lot of depth. All four stories are different stories on their own, with the characters of the different parts coming back into the other stories. And although they are fun and sweet, the stories are short and therefore not rocking your world. 
However, if you like to swoon over bad bikerboys, this is definitely your cup of tea. So relax, grab a chair and have fun. Three out of five stars from me and a special thank you to Netgalley for providing the arc.

These four novellas are just short and sweet and fun. I would definitely recommend them for a palate cleanser or to combat a reading slump. Do not expect anything life-changing, but I thoroughly enjoyed my reading experience and a couple moments even made me go "aww." 

Each of the stories is from the hero's POV, which was a nice change, and there was not any steamy bits beyond kissing. Also, do not expect any long epilogues about marriage and kids, which was also refreshing. If you were only going to read one, I would recommend Vince's story. His was really sweet. If you love guys on motorcycles who are the biggest teddy bear, then I think you will have fun with these.

This collection short stories are fun and take the reader in a wild ride. Great characters and original situations they find themselves in. However the endings on these stories feel rushed and forced. It feels like you had to wrap everything up in that last chapter when the characters still had more to say or do.
