Review by Gardenia

Brenda wants the same happiness her six sisters have, but she doubts she’ll ever find it. Unlike most women, she prefers jeans to dresses and heels, dislikes makeup, enjoys working on cars, and she’s active in sports. The men in her life have always acted as big brothers.

But when Jake Dresden, a racecar driver, steps into her life, she notices he is different. His kindness and gentleness, in addition to his handsome looks, jumpstart her heart and rev her hormones. The way he gazes at her and treats her is out of the ordinary. Could she have met the man who will complete her?

Brenda’s passion for cars in undoubtedly the main reason Jake is taken by her from the moment he lays eyes on her. Besides her natural good lucks, she is devastatingly natural and open. I really appreciated how the author portrayed her as intelligent but simple and down to earth and woman who can be at ease with the boys talking auto mechanics as well as being their friend.

Her longing for a family of her own now that all her sisters have found significant others is very human. She is at the point in her life where those longings are starting to call to her. Meeting Jake is an event in her life. The instant attraction between them paves the way to their whirlwind romance.

My only regret is how short this story was. It is an enjoyable, easy going read about two people who meet and fall in love. No hysterics, no dramatics, no conflict just two people who recognize they should be together and want to spend the rest of their lives just so.
