Overview


She needs a lesson in love, and he’s the perfect teacher.

Mechanic Melody Swan is looking for a man who can share her hopes and dreams, but she swore she would never lose herself to passion. When sexy Heath Starr agrees to temporarily sub in the Under the Hood garage for his sister, Mel sees the perfect opportunity to enjoy being with a man without becoming attached.

Heath came to Meadowsweet to photograph nature, not find a hookup, especially since his last relationship ended in disaster. He vowed he’d never break another woman’s heart, and in turn, protect his own. Still, when Mel offers to serve as his outdoor guide, he can’t refuse.

Mel may say she’s only looking for right now, but her body is speaking a whole different language. And Heath’s viewfinder is drawn to her time and again. When the two find themselves isolated in a rustic cabin, they could both break their promises if they aren’t careful…

    Very enjoyable quick read! Melody struggles with her confidence

    Very enjoyable quick read! Melody struggles with her confidence and desires when it comes to men. Heath is the ultimate player never taking relationships seriously. Two people couldn't be more wrong for each other but.... Grab this one to find out what happens. I highly recommend it.

    I enjoyed reading about Mel, her troubles with finding the one and how her past influenced the way she makes her decision. She has always known not to trust man because of the mistake her mother made in the past but finding for the one isn't easy and she learned it the hard way through her failed two relationships. When she met Heath again after a few years, she is sorely tempted. 

    It is also amusing to read how Heath teases Mel when he meets her and how Mel warns Heath that she is not interested in him and all. However, I find it a little weird that Mel would tell how she really feel to Heath, whom she isn't really close to--Betty and Alice (close friends) maybe but definitely not Heath. I have to applaud for Heath's remarkable self-restrain in the book. He is a likeable character who is honest and respectful. I was constantly rooting for him. 

    The ending was satisfactory even though it could be better--it felt a little rushed. I would really love it if we could read more about Mel's family and a glimpse of what happened to Mel and Heath after that surprise that was made. I'm glad this book cam be read as a standalone. I didn't feel that I missed out a lot while reading this book but it definitely piqued my interest on Alice and Mark.

    I received a review copy via the publisher in exchange for the above honest review.

    4 Stars!
    If you love a book that’s short, sweet, romantic, and heated between the sheets, this is the book for you. Melody Swan owns a garage with her three best friends and when one of her friends gets injured and is unable to work, a brother of one of Melody’s best friend’s steps in to help out. But he has his own agenda. Heath Starr only agreed to help because he needs to photograph nature to be able to land his dream job, and why not the beautiful town of Meadowsweet. But neither Heath nor Melody knew what was going to happen when they began working and spending more time together.
    Their attraction builds, both of them denying the obvious, fighting every spark between them. But soon when they find themselves alone in a cabin in the middle of the woods does the spark finally ignite and they have no other reason to stop what is brewing between them.
    But then something comes up, forces them apart, hurting them both in the process. You’ll just have to read the book to find out though. This book is cute and has a good amount of steam for this kind of novel. It’s a quick, one sitting read with minimum angst, for if you’re in the mood for a feel good book, you’ve found your answer.

    Melody is the owner of a garage who is short handed because one

    Melody is the owner of a garage who is short handed because one of her mechanics is injured. Heath is the injured mechanics brother who is helping out. They are attracted to each other, but Melody is frightened by her feelings and breaks things off. She changes her mind and they live happily ever after.

    It was really hard for me to connect with the characters in this novel. Melody was very conflicted about her feeling and relationships. Heath was almost to go to be true. Overall it was an OK book, but I don't know that I would read another one in the series.

    I was given a free copy for an honest review.

    Careful this might have a few spoilers
    Hmm not sure about this book, it was not terrible but not great either.
    The first few pages were kind of confusing to start off. I also thought the title somewhat reminded me of a self-help kind of book.
     I thought the main character Mel was kind of weird, she was not looking for a relationship and if she wanted one that one without sex… okayyyyy. But most men didn't go for that… (Wonder why). So than she meets Heath and she tells him that , and he suggest , that she should learn how to tolerate a man’s touch and he is more than willing to help her with that.  Who needs to learn to tolerate anybody’s touch was my thought about that . But then she completely changes and all she can think about is having Sex with Heath, who doesn't want more than friendship not even a one night stand, even though he is known as the “ladyslayer” ……
    So with all this it was a bit weird and confusing…..  But I’m sure some people might like it.
    It is a short story so that was a bonus as it can be read fast.  I recommend it to all romance and contemporary romance fans
     
    I give it 2 ½ ¿

    I received an eARC copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. Here is my honest review.




    This is the first book I have read in the Under the Hood series yet it can be read without having read the first book. The series follows a group of women trained as mechanics that band together and open their own garage.  I think this is such a great setting for a romance book. Mel was fairly likeable as the heroine. She is shy and hesitant about love - which is a bit of a stretch. I think if there had been a little more development to highlight her shyness and tomboy spirit it would have been more believable. Heath (what a name for a romance hero, right?) is such a laid-back, yet hard-working guy it was hard to believe he was from New York City. However he was super sweet yet completely a <i>guy</i>
    at the same time. 
    One thing that Clements did that I appreciated was that both Mel and Heath were determined to reach out for the happily ever after - even though Mel beat him to it!

    A fun quick read novella. I really enjoyed the story of how two opposites try to fight off the attraction between them. Will a one night encounter satisfy both of them. I recommend this book for a fun enjoyable read.

    I liked this, but it was a book that took some warming up. I can only describe it as a switch being flicked in me and I went from being pretty nonchalant about it, to finding it sweet touching and romantic.

    Mel Swann has an aversion to sex. She makes no secret that she'd like to be in a relationship but minus the intimacy and is awkward around men, believes many are after one thing and has a mum that feeds her brain with the 'all men are the same' ideology. When her business partner/friend, Alice ends up out of action, her brother Heath arrives to lend a hand. With the nick-name of Ladyslayer, Mel instantly judges, but there is much more to him and he has more than one reason for arriving in Meadowsweet.

    It was the whole 'I want a man but I don't want sex' attitude that made Mel difficult to warm to. However, Heath is a gent and I quickly found myself falling under his spell, despite it lurking in the background that Mel actually didn't deserve his understanding. Perseverance paid off though and when everything clicked, it became a book I wanted to finish for the right reasons, although I did feel it was wrapped up a little too quickly.

    If a shortish closed-door romantic read in a descriptively lovely setting is what you're after, then yes, Love for Beginners fits that bill and I'd happily read Betty's story in the future if we are given the opportunity.

    (The second novella in the Under the Hood series, Love for Beginners could be read as a standalone, however as the first novella (entitled the same as the series) is Alice's and closely related, I would recommend reading first)

    I received a copy of this courtesy of Entangled Publishing for an honest &amp; unbiased opinion.
