Release Blitz with Review: In the Gray by B.B Reid

June 9, 2023



In the Gray by B.B. Reid is now live!


I know what they say. Grief makes you do things.

After the year I’ve had, I’m bathing in it.

Dad’s dead.

Mom is…mom.

My boyfriend and best friend are too busy screwing to comfort me.

When a letter arrives with no return address telling me where to go for a new start, I

don’t hesitate.

I pack some clothes and what’s left of my life and run.

But I didn’t expect the fire waiting for me when I arrived. I didn’t count on the burn.

Rowdy Wray.

They call him the lion of Idlewild.

Me…I call him boss.

He’s the key to my past and the path to my future.

What happens next is our twisted secret.


Who is this girl?

Atlas Beck.

This damaged young thing shows up at my place of business and tells me she’s my new


I should have fired her.

I would have fired her if she hadn’t begged so beautifully.

Atlas told me not to let her go, but she didn’t know what she was asking. And now?

It’s too late to put the crazy back in its cage.

Whew!!! Dang what a ride! I went into this story almost completely blind and even though I had a pretty good idea where this was going, the plot twist felt like a record scratch. I became too comfortable with these characters and they're day to day process and in return, the author completely swept the rug from under me.

Atlas Beck has been through her fair share of trauma over the past year so when she gets an anonymous note, she decides to start over in the town of Idlewild. There she meets the four owners of a popular mechanic shop where she starts to work and right from the start she's drawn to the most dangerous one of them all.


Rowdy lives by his own rules and does things his way and if you have a problem with that, then you're going to be facing a cold metal steel against your skull. For years he's done his own thing and nothing and no one is going to change that. Or so he thinks.

From the moment Rowdy meets Atlas, he knew that she was different but just like him, she has secrets of her own and she's not about to hand them over. Will these two who are so wrong for each other in every way, manage to do the unthinkable and love each other?


I'm going to be brutally honest and say that I did not love how certain things were handled in this story and I was not a fan of the hero for a good portion of the story. As much as these two brought out the best in each other, they also brought out the worst and in return chaos ensured. They were brutally toxic, unforgiving, reckless and I was scared they were going to burn the place down!! But somehow underneath all of that, they were loyal and passionate and when they loved? You really felt  it.

If you're looking for a complicated, highly addictive read with a fierce heroine, then this one's for you.
