“Wrenches, Regrets & Reality Checks” by L.A. Witt

about

2nd Edition

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.

 

review

Isn’t it great when your favorite authors re-release books? I adore it! I am running up the down escalator attempting to put a dent in my to-read-list. It’s an endless battle of books and it’s a great problem to have. There are times that I wish I could simply binge read an author but more often than not, I take my time and savor their books as each one is their last. I adore LA Witt and hope to conquer her bookshelf one day and having this story pop up on my radar was a most excellent surprise.

We are working our way through the hot and hard mechanics of Wrench Wars and Reggie deserves a steamy bit of happiness in the midst of the chaos. I enjoyed Reggie as a secondary character and was stoked he steps into the limelight here. He’s been all work and no play for far too long and thankfully that’s about to change. When Wes lays down the networks’ ultimatum Reggie is backed into a corner. The biggest surprise is, he might not be alone. Care to find out?

Like

I’m always game for a collision of opposites, especially when clothing fall off in the wake of the crash. Reg and Wes are night and day but discover most differences fade when emotions take control. Neither think the other could be interested in getting to know the other better, but delightedly find out otherwise. Wes has lusted after the owner of the shop and leader of the crew on his network’s reality show ever since he laid eyes on him. He’s been a producer for several years and doesn’t have much pride in the career trail he’s left. He doesn’t fit in the with ruthless sharks in Hollywood but seems to be stuck on his current path. He risks it all when he spills his guts to Reg but some things are worth the gamble. Question is, will it pay off?

love

Witt delivers another fantastic pair of men in a fantastically sticky situation. Her books are comfort reads and always leave me with a smile on my face and joy in my heart. It was fantastic having the previous couples continue to take part in the story. It’s always refreshing to know and adore the rest of the cast. I feel like part of the gang and cherish the love resonating from all directions.

beware

A very short novella (arguably too short) without a solid conclusion. HFN is not always a favorite of mine but I am holding onto high hopes of a HEA for Reg and Wes as the series continues. I have a strong feeling more heated drama is coming.

bookisforIf hot rods and the hotties who keep them purring hit your buttons, you’ll want to check this one out. Better yet, the series….they are short, sexy and loaded with spectacular guys.
