When Reggie’s garage became part of a popular reality show, business went through the roof. And he supposes having his shop in the black is a fair trade for jumping through the network’s hoops.
As the show’s lowest-ranking producer, Wes is tasked with proposing a new spin-off show to Reggie. The sexy mechanic makes him sweat on a normal day, but this time, Wes is holding cards he can’t show. With execs breathing down his neck, he’s expected to pitch a show Reggie will never agree to do, even if his rejection puts his existing show on the line.
The network is counting on Reggie refusing to sign. But they’re not counting on their messenger falling for the man they’re trying to fire.
I think since I really enjoyed the other 2 books I figured this one would be along the same lines as the others. It wasn’t. This was just kind of boring, nothing special. Which kind of sucks because I wanted Reggie’s story to friggin rock but it just didn’t. In book 1 when we are first introduced to him even though he wasn’t on page much, he had a presence. His character stayed with me so going into this books I was really looking forward to learning more about him. This story was just kind of a letdown.
Reggie is undeniably tied up in the reality TV show, Wrench Wars. His shop is a feature on the show and at this point he relies on the income to stay afloat. He’s unprepared for the curve ball the producers throw at him out of nowhere.
Wes, a producer for the show is the one they sent to make sure Reggie agrees to all the fine print. But Wes is on Reggie’s side in more ways than one.
The attraction between the men is undeniable and the smolder at first is pretty good.
I think my biggest issue was how flat Reggie was. I wanted so much more from him and I was disappointed.
OK, but not what I was expecting.
