I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Under the Hood by Sally Clements
Series: Under the Hood #1
Published by Bliss, Entangled on December 30, 2013
Genres: Contemporary Romance
When sexy mechanic Alice Starr mistakenly believes attorney Mark Jameson needs her help, he discovers he likes being rescued for a change. Smitten by her confidence, he hides his expertise so he has an excuse to see her again.
Starting their new all-female garage, Under the Hood, is keeping Alice and her friends busy. She doesn’t have time for a man. But with one kiss, she and Mark have advanced into water so deep she’s in danger of drowning. So why hasn’t he called?
Mark wants to tell Alice the truth so they can pursue a relationship. But he’s got even bigger problems at his office when his bitter aunt threatens Alice’s livelihood. He needs a plan, fast, or else Under the Hood and his chances with Alice could both be ruined.
Alice and her friends are mechanics. So awesome! I absolutely loved that they opened their own garage just to make other women feel comfortable about taking their car in for repairs! I need to find a shop like that in my area. While I do agree that it is best to be honest up front, I thought it was sweet that Mark let Alice “rescue” him and not overshadow her with his knowledge. Bonus points for that man! Under the Hood was another quick read and such a delight! I have now purchased the second novella in the series, Love for Beginners!
