Zero to 60, baby...
Though he's struggling to take his hot rods to the big time, mechanic Raine Reyes won't accept help from anyone -- certainly not an uptown woman like Lily whose miles-wide reckless streak brings out the repressed bad boy in him. He knows he should run from her offer to be the new face of her next expensive advertising campaign, but he's too tempted... by her. He sees right through her to the forgotten needs, the neglected fantasies, and the woman she always wanted to be.
Rev me up...

I received a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads, so here is my review. Lily Bishop is trying to land an ad campaign for the Rebel A line of clothing and make-up. But there are other ad agencies trying to get the job. So she goes back to her office and her settled life. When she heads home on her bike, the wheels in her mind are turning even faster the normal. She runs through a stop sign and runs into a Coupe. The driver of the Coupe is more worried about her then his vintage car. He takes her back to his shop, where he restores old cars, and patches her up and a few other things. The sex between Lily and Raine is HOT! Lily wants him and only for the night will she give in to her fantasy. Raine Reyes is as sexy and muscled as the cars he restores. She takes a few pictures of him before she leaves but instead of sending the pictures to her personal email, she sends them to Arebella, Rebel A owner. And Arebella wants him as her spokesperson. And Arebella usually gets what she wants. Lily wants more with Raine but she sees the age difference as the main problem. he makes her want to change and not settle in her life. There are a few interesting things happening along the way. Can she see that he only wants what is best for her? He doesn't want to control her, just inspire her to do what makes her happy. Will Raine give up on her or fight to make her see what he sees? This is a first for me by Jenna Dales and I loved it. A great story and I look forward to reading Thrill Me (Hot Rod #2) coming soon. **Wicked Reads Review Team**
I received a copy of this book from Netgallery in exchange for an honest review. Lily Bishop has her life planned out. Working as an ad exec after she quite mid way thru a degree for her MFA (Master of Fine Arts) in photography she is determined to prove that she has what is needed to succeed. She is poised and always in control. While on a bike ride home after a horrible day at work she crashes her bike (quite literally) into Raine Reyes hot rod car. At the time she doesn't know what is more beautiful.... his car or him. Raine doesn't know what to think of the blond 40 something bombshell. He is attracted but worries that Lily won't think he's good enough for her and her lifestyle. After all he is a mere mechanic. When pictures Lily took of Raine fall into the wrong hands he is suddenly being looked at as the next model of her big advertising campaign. Not really comfortable with the offer he agrees, only for her, as long as she agrees to be the one to photograph him. Lily finds herself confused about her "relationship" with Raine. He wants more but she believes he is too young for her at the age of 24. Raine is flirty, sweet, sexy, and mature for his tender years. While at the beginning of the book I also had misgivings about the apparent age difference I was impressed on how he handled most of the situations that came up. I have to admit the whole him, Lily, and Fitz scene left me going WHAT?! But it was definitely hot! Lily was a little harder for me to gage. I expected a woman of her age to know herself and what she wanted more. Guess she just needed that extra push from someone who really cared to make her see what was already in front of her. It was a quick, fun, read.
