To win her heart, he’ll have to touch off her internal combustion.

Even after ten long years, Frankie Sepkaski’s success as the best vintage car mechanic around still hasn’t overcome her teenage rep as a promiscuous troublemaker.

This was one of the better novellas that I have read. I absolutely loved both characters, Mac and Frankie. There were also a few laugh out loud funny moments that made the book for me. If you are in the mood for something short, sweet, sexy and funny - pick this one up!

Mac likes vintage cars, but he likes his mechanic Frankie Sepkaski even more. They are a case of opposites attract, he is from a prominent family, with a successful career as an architect and she is the grease monkey trying to take over her father’s vintage car business who can’t seem to live down her promiscuous past. After buying a new car every month just for the excuse to see her he finally wears her down enough to agree to

I liked this one well enough, but I found Frankie's character a bit uneven. She was so girlie girl at some moments, but then totally shut down in others. I enjoyed her interactions with Mac, and the quality of the writing was excellent, but I just found her way too wide-eyed innocent in some moments. She read more like the virginal heroine of a historical romance who was unschooled in the ways of love.

That said, the sex scenes here were good (they tended towards the overt with descriptions, w

A nice short story. I really liked the two main characters - there was some hilarious dialog between them and even though it was a very short story where everything was sped up x100, I could still see that the Frankie and Mac were a really good couple. I sometimes don't get that feeling with 400 pages books.

Great writing! Wish it was a bit longer. One thing that kind of annoyed me was that there was a small mention of Frankie's issues with her mother's lack of presence, which Mac made a note to

Mac has a weakness for vintage cars and his hot mechanic, Frankie. Overdrive is a sexy little (predictable) story; perfect for an in-between read.
"I have a confession to make," he said.
"Yeah, what's that?"
"It only took me five minutes to pick out this outfit."
"And that's supposed to make me feel better, how?"
"You didn't let me finish." He leaned into her, brushing a lock of hair from her forehead. "Ask me how long I stood in the garage deciding which car to pick you up in?"
Her pulse skittered a

This was a fun one. I loved how Mac has been secretly lusting over Frankie for years, to the point that his hobby, which brings into contact with Frankie, is starting to get out of control. Frankie's admission to Mac at dinner of how she got her rep had me laughing, it would have been horrifying for her, but entertaining as hell for the rest of us. I was surprised by Frankie's proposition to Mac and loved it when he turned it around on her. It looked like they both were about to get what they wa ...more

I enjoyed the relationship between Frankie and Mac. Frankie afraid to let go and Mac loving her secretly all along. The sex scenes were very explicit could have done without the graphic detail.
