My Thoughts: The title, the cover, and the synopsis captured my attention and I knew I wanted to check this book out. Sass Hogan is 23 years old and knows her way around cars better than some of the best men out there. When she catches her cheating boyfriend with another woman, she decides to take it out on his classic car, only the car wasn't his. Enter Jordan Carlyle,the son of Hogan's competition and the owner of the Mustang with the mistaken identity, using the identity of Jordan Michaels. Jordan shows up at Hogan's to have his car repaired, as if Sass wasn't already feeling guilty enough about what happened, but Jordan has his own agenda to. What neither of them planned on was the attraction between them that turned into a lot more. While their feelings are real, will the web of deception they have both weaved be more than can be repaired?
I liked Jordan's character. He was quite the hottie who despite the initial deception, was a really great guy and I really began to like him as the book progressed. I didn't care as much for Sass' character. She was okay, but I just was not won over by her character or her personality, and though I did like her better by the end of the book, I never really connected with her and found her to be a bit frustrating at times.
Despite the fact that I didn't connect with the characters on as deep a level as I would have liked, I did enjoy the story overall, and the chemistry between them was intense. This is the first book I've read by Daire St. Denis and I would certainly be interested in reading more from her in the future. Overall, I would consider this an enjoyable story, it didn't have that "wow" factor that sucks you in, but it is something that contemporary romance fans would enjoy.
