When Sass Hogan catches her boyfriend slow-dancing and doing the tongue-tango with Tori Double-D-Cup Hunter, she pays him back the only way she knows how—by taking a tire iron to his beloved ’67 Mustang Fastback. There’s only one problem. She’s destroyed the wrong car.
Jordan Michaels wants his car fixed, now, and he wants Sass’s auto body shop to do it. But the handsome blond has a secret−he’s really Jordan Carlyle of Carlyle’s Classics, Hogan’s biggest competitor, and he’s determined to prove himself to his family.
As Sass and Jordan get to know each other, the depth of the attraction has them falling in love. But a relationship based on lies will only leave them primed for the worst wreck of their lives.
This book gave me all the feels! Laughter, love, lust and even some tears. The characters were well-built and the storyline was very real.
The main female character is Sassy and yup, that is her real name. Cool right? She steps into the local bar one evening and finds her boyfriend snuggled up to some other woman. Of course, she sees red and sets on a mission to sabotage him. She takes a tire iron to his precious mustang. Smashes it to pieces and actually feels quite an accomplishment. Until she goes to work the next morning at Hogan’s and the poor soul whose car she smashed shows up to get it fixed. It is then that she realizes, she hit the wrong car!!!
Now Jordan is known as the black sheep of his family. Always screwing up and he feels like he will never live down that he set his families shop on fire. His real love is drawing. He is on a mission to gain back his father’s approval, so when his car is smashed to bits, it makes it even easier to hit the competitor and find out what they truly can do. Under a guise of someone else of course!
These two are equally f’d up. Sassy has never lived down the fact that her mother left her as a small child and it seems that every time she falls for a guy, they always end up leaving. So she has made up her mind….she will not fall in love and no sleepovers. They are too intimate. Sex only! Jordan has had girlfriends in the past, the last one turned into a crazy stalker. The last thing he is looking for is a relationship but one look at Sassy and his heart starts doing crazy things. He needs to calm it down so that he can complete his real mission.
I really enjoyed this storyline and the characters felt very real. Their circumstances were sad and it was great reading about these too lonely souls that maybe could find love in each other. That was not such an easy task.
I loved getting the perspective from each of them with dueling POVs. At one point, they both were thinking that the other knew their secret. It was actually a little comical at times. The sex was intense and there was plenty of it!
I did really enjoy this book and thought the ending was really sweet. There were some points though that I felt that the story got drug out a bit but for me it just showed how much change Sassy had to go through to realize what she wanted and some things about her past.
Thanks to Entangled for allowing me to review this book!
