I voluntarily received a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.   The book starts out hilarious, and I knew right away I was at least going to like it.   “Edie’s Tip #42. Blinker fluid is not a real thing, regardless of what those auto shop guys tell you.” It really only took a few pages in for me to know I was going to love it.  I mean this was some crazy soap opera plot twist nightmare Erica Cane BS going on.   “I couldn’t have heard that right. But then why was my ---MY MOTHER --- locking lips with my ex-fiance.” I was stunned! Edie’s mother got engaged to Edie’s ex-fiance and announced it at Edie’s cousin’s wedding.  Oh, the horror.  OMG! BTW they call the mother the Dragon, it was so fitting and hilarious.  And the plot thickens more.  Edie, the ex-douche and the ex-douche's brother all own automotive repair shop together that they inherited since their families grew up together in a small town. Yet Edie is the one who runs it with a group of women.  Luke (the ex-douche’s brother) are you keeping up?  Comes back to town the same night as the huge wedding fiasco.  And she (Edie) finds out he is selling the majority share of the business to the Dragon.  Yeah, that’s not going to work for Edie. Omg, the story was fantastic, it gave me all of the feels!  I laughed a lot but I also teared up.  No, sobbing but my eyes were wet.  And boy did I smile, I smiled and smiled.  Edie realizing she has feelings for Luke after years and years and has all of those insecurities about a guy, sitting waiting for him to call or text.  What woman doesn’t know that feeling? “If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it have to admit it kept restarting its phone to make sure it was working?” Luke and Edie's story was so incredibly heartwarming and a pleasure to read.  Not to mention I loved Edie and her garage.  I run an industrial repair shop and I am a big proponent for a woman can do anything a man can do.  I absolutely loved this story and I will be looking for more in this series and will be reading more from Novak.    I am giving this 5 HUGE Boundless Stars, and I adored it to the moon and back.

A fantastic, captivating, heart pounding, heartwarming story of loss, healing, and finding true love in the face of heartache. Edie co owns her late grandfather's auto shop with her ex fiancee and the bane of her mother's existence. Luke has been Edie's best friend for years and her ex fiancee's brother. This was a great romantic comedy with so much heart that will have readers laughing, crying, and angry with a couple of characters. A great story line and lovable characters. I absolutely loved this book from Heather Novak. Readers will fall in love with this new romantic comedy. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

One of my top reads for 2018 so far!! This story was funny, sweet, sassy and just a great read from beginning to end! I stayed up WAY too late last night finishing this story and then was not ready for the story to end and not for sleep. Definitely a book hangover! Edie and her guard rooster are just a perfect, crazy pair. First off, I love how zany Edie is. And I'm in admiration of her and her all girl auto repair. That's definitely something admirable. Especially with the other things going on in her life and Edie handles it with sass and a torque wrench. And this might be one of the best (and most accurate for me) lines in the book: "I'm as pale as a ghost. I turn pink with a four-degree temperature change." Because seriously, that's me to a T! I can't wait for the next book!! There's still so much in this world of Grenadine Michigan and Edie's Auto that I need to know!!

I really liked this book. The entertaining story is part cute, part sweet and totally enjoyable. Edie was such a lovable character. Sympathetic, unique, smart, caring, funny, capable and 100% genuine. She was just so awesome that I felt an instant attachment to her that made me want to fight her enemies, assist her friends and shelter her from the nastiness and cruelness that was always being shoveled her way. I really liked Luke and I thought he was just perfect for Edie. Their chemistry sizzled. There are many wonderful secondary characters and of course, several detestable ones too. If you want a read that's filled with charm, enough drama to shake a stick at and swoony romance, than this book is for you. I can't hardly wait for the next book in this series.
