Ella Boudreaux has a lot to prove to her family, friends, and foes—and to herself. So when her marriage ends she decides to invest her energy and money into a place that brings back some of Ella’s happiest memories: the Abbott brothers’ garage. Maybe, if she puts her mind to it, she can teach skeptical, stubborn Mack Abbott how to make the business a true success. Which would be a lot easier if the hunky mechanic didn’t make her motor run quite so fast…and hot.

Mack was furious when his brother, Ford, sold his share of the business. He’s in no rush to team up with a wealthy divorcée who shows up to the garage in stilettos—and the longest, sexiest legs he’s seen in forever. But Ella’s grit and determination won’t quit…and soon Mack can see that she’s been down a few rough roads herself. Neither Mack nor Ella can deny the fierce attraction that’s revving up between them. Could it be that true love has been in the backseat all along…and they’ve finally found the key?


This book was so good. I absolutely loved Ella. She had been through so many hardships and yet she was still such a good hearted person. I envy that. And Mack was her perfect match. A big strong man but with a big heart. He also had been through a lot and with the help of falling for Ella his life was starting to mend in ways he couldn’t even imagine. I love when stories have a family dynamic. I loved Mack’s brothers. I also liked the addition of Megan. It just showed how wonderful of a person Ella was and that she deserved the world Mack was going to give her. I can’t wait to read another book by this author. Her writing style is fabulous.
