Small-town mechanic and tattooed bad boy Travis keeps his profile low, his needs satisfied outside the city limits, and his business running smoothly. He doesn’t cause trouble and he certainly doesn’t want any.
Trouble finds him one scorching afternoon, however, in the form of the equally scorching Arabella Drake. The former heiress owes Travis for car repairs, money she can’t readily pay.
Their situation requires a creative solution, and while most of the town rejects Bella, Travis wants to ravish her. He offers a proposal, one that will soften the repair costs—and satisfy Travis’ longstanding wish to have Bella Drake naked, writhing and sliding down on every inch of him.
A Romantica® contemporary erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave
This is book was given to me for my honest thoughts… So let’s see what I have to say!
First, let me say this is a short, sexy story. I will try not to give too much away in my review because the book is hot! Ms. Lissa created a story that will ring true no matter what class you feel you may fall in. The upper class family that falls from their status and those left to pick up the pieces… The ones that were hurt by the family… Will they ever forgive them or forever hold the grudge against them? Ms. Lissa crafted the characters perfectly, with all sorts of seasoning and spices added to them.
Arabella, (I love this name, very unique) is a woman who has made up her mind that she is not going to allow her families past ruin her future. She is moving back to her hometown where the damage was done and she knows people are talking trash about her. But does she care, hell no. Well, yes she does… but righting a wrong that she did not do is kinda hard… but so is the way some people are treating her. She just wants to carve out a little life for herself but when her car breaks down and she has no means for paying the mechanic, Travis… Well, that is when things get interesting.
Travis is man that is making a living doing what he loves – working on cars in a town he loves. He is everything that cover is made of… damn! And on one great day, his fantasy walks in his shop needing his help. He knows it is going to cost him more than just the labor and parts of the car… it could possibly cost him his pride and his heart. Is that something he is willing to risk… The choice is his to make.
This story is written really good to keep you guessing at what will happen with each turn of the page. The hurt and betrayal in this book really shows in each character but the forgiveness is what is important. Arabella tries to alleviate the pain that was created by her brother in the town she loves and is determined to reclaim as her hometown. Travis presents a twist in her plans she was not counting on and it is a delicious twist…. The description of every part of every…ummmmmm…. Thing is just absolutely enchanting. This story will leave you tingling and you might even love the way it ends… Ms. Lissa great job!!!
The cover almost beats my Buck!!! LOL!!!!!!!
