"There's parts of her that were completely untouched until my dirty hands pulled her in, marking her in all the ways she needed."
Desperate to find a new mechanic, the last thing Reddington expects is a woman to show up, let alone one with a sinful body, sharp tongue, and the inability to just do her job and not give him lip. He can't deny he's hoping to catch a view of her bent over a hood, but there's not a chance in hell that's going to happen. As much as Red wants to take her for a test drive, he knows he needs to keep his priorities straight.

What she doesn't expect is a sexy, brooding, tattooed boss with an attitude. Neither of them can ignore their attraction as they struggle to make sense of their connection. And what happens next will no doubt be unsteady.

The story line was good. The guy narration killed the overall feel of the book. He sounded too wimpy. Felt like he was reading a children's book or teaching- just weird
female narrator did a better job with the male voice
The male narrator should NOT be narrating romance novels!!! His intonation made it sound like he was reading a Dr. Seuss book. The story was good so it was ignorable for the most part - except for the love scenes, which he thoroughly ruined. Thank goodness he was saved by the female narrator who did a good job. And the story itself was enjoyable thanks to the author.
This book was okay. I felt that there were parts that were too drawn out. It could have ended sooner and the build up to her husband showing up could have been better.
Fairly strong storyline but hard to believe in strong blue collar alpha male when the female narrator's hero voice was more masculine, dominant, and sexy than the actual male narrator's very high pitched voice. Normally I love dual narrators and find a deep resonating or growling male voice adds depth and sex appeal to a story but in this case the female narrator could have carried off all the characters successfully. The dramatic difference from her male character voice in one chapter changing to POV of the high pitched, rather frazzled male narrator's voice in a following chapter made me cringe. Toward the end and I stopped enjoying story and fast forwarded much of it to the end.
