Overview

To win her heart, he’ll have to touch off her internal combustion.

Even after ten long years, Frankie Sepkaski’s success as the best vintage car mechanic around still hasn’t overcome her teenage rep as a promiscuous troublemaker. No matter how tempting the prospect, the last thing Mac Galbraith needs is for her to take him out for a spin. Especially since his family thinks he should be looking for a prospective wife among the local socialites, not slumming with a grease monkey.

Mac likes vintage rides, but buying a new one every month just to have an excuse to see his ridiculously sexy mechanic in her overalls? That’s pathetic. When she finally says yes to his date offer, he’s not fooled. It’s only because she has every intention of using him to indulge her fantasies—then walking away. But Mac knows something else: underneath her bad-girl persona is a woman worth her weight in lug nuts.

It might take a crowbar to get her to admit she has feelings for him, but he plans to put the pedal to the metal to convince her to keep him around for more than just a test drive.

Warning: Sweaty, down-and-dirty sex between a mechanic and her best client. Read at your own risk. Dangerous curves lie ahead, and these roads are slippery when wet.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Vintage-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
