Just isn't for me. I was really put off from the get-go when this smart mechanic girl "dumbs herself down" and throws herself at her step-sister's ex-boyfriend. I don't like women dumbing themselves down. I'm sure it gets better but the "insta-lust" alone put me off, so I decided to pass. And sisters sharing men--I don't care how many years have passed or if it's step or half or whatever--yuck.

At First Sight: Nic Sinclair has always been the ugly duckling to her step-sister Ella's beautiful swan, but she was content enough with her life owning half of Ella's father's vintage car dealership/restoration garage; handling the mechanical stuff while Ella dealt with sales and business.

Until Ella decided to drop everything, sell her half of the garage and leave Nic in a lurch. Now Nic has a partner she doesn't know and has to enter the town's Misses and Motor's beauty pageant (which Ella has

Nic (Nicola) and her stepsister Ella are left the auto body shop that belonged to Ella's father that Nicola just loves having. You see Nic's mom married Ella's father when Nic was 14 during that time in her life when it mattered who she was and that you did not fit in with your peers.

I was able to read this story in advance of its release in exchange for this honest review.

This book is a modern take on the fairy tale Cinderella.The book starts out with Nic finding out her stepsister Ella sold her half of their vintage car business and took off in a letter. Nic has always been a tomboy working on cars while Ella was always the pretty one winning pageants. She doesn't know who Ella sold her half to until Sebastian Prince shows up. Nic has always had a crush on Sebastian but didn't think she could compete with her super pretty steps

I liked this story. Nic she's something else, "every car mad little boy in the country knows who you are. You've been plastered all over the papers for the past month." When Sebastian gets mad the boy gives her an earful, "home," came the angry reply. He stopped just as he reached the exit and turned to face her, hands on hips. "For what it's worth, which is clearly sod all as far as you're concerned, I've spent most of today nursing a hard on because I can't stop thinking about your ti*s. So do ...more

I had added this book into my list only because of its interesting synopsis. And I thought it was entertaining theme - kind of Cinderella story!! But in reality, when I read, it was disappointing!
The story was a sweet romance but, most of the part, the interaction between Nic and Sebastion was dull or rather vague and I was confused by what they meant!! Hmmm...I cant tell exactly what I felt reading the book but I lost all my interest by first few chapters itself.
