Abbie knew that she was taking a risk, but it seemed to be a gamble that might pay off. Malachi Garrett, brilliant engineer-inventor, was so reclusive that hardly anything was known about him. Now here he was, in a bar in Oklahoma, looking for someone to drive his Shelby Cobra car in a race to Washington DC. As a freelance journalist, Abbie couldn't pass up the chance.

Soo, good, the hero/heroine battle it out, she calls him a chauvinist and he calls her a feminist. She's a reporter who eavesdrops on a conversation about a bet and him needing a driver and volunteers herself, so that she can get a scoop on him. From the start these two have sizzling chemistry, and trade barbs. The hero's competition is his bitchy ex who stole from him and that's why the hero asks the heroine to also act as his lover. Honestly, I loved how Abby could put down the

Definitely a winner!
Funny and witty read with cute characters.
I was wondering, what with Abby's lies and Malachi's attitude, could this book end well? But don't worry, the author managed to end this book splendidly. My heart warmed by Malachi's love for Abby.

I know that this is another romance but I am trying to read the ones I have until I get the books from the library. So here is my take on this one....
It was good but there could be more on the romance then the two of the characters arguing all the time until they figure out they are in love with each other at the end of the book. If I were to write this book I would give hints and help them figure it out long before the end of the book that way the romance lasts longer in the story and it reads

“Deke: 'You know what I'm wonderin'?'
Malachi: 'No, and to tell the truth, I don't care'
Deke: 'I'm wonderin' how you've managed to live to the ripe old age of 36, when it's a known fact that you've been brain-dead since birth'

'Strength of will', was the flat reply”
