Library JournalVintage-car mechanic Frankie Sepkaski has a reputation for being wanton, and even though it may not be entirely founded in truth, it is a rep she is determined to protect. Wealthy architect Mac Galbraith is an antique-car collector who just happens to find his mechanic hotter than his vintage Mustang’s engine. When Mac promises only friendship, Frankie stops hiding behind her reputation and succumbs to his advances. But her revelation at dinner leaves him offering much more. Frankie can handle a bedroom mentor as long as there are no emotional attachments, as she knows a man of Mac’s means and this grease monkey will never be a match. When Mac finally has her convinced otherwise, the issue of their class differences is brought to light and jeopardizes their romantic future and a chance at real happiness.
Verdict Although the narrative fizzles briefly when a character’s abrupt attitude change proves unlikely, the sensual romance between these two protagonists will have the reader devouring the pages of this amusing yarn. Cole (Just One Night) also writes as Christine Bell.—Kara Kohn, Plainfield P.L., IL
