Cottonbloom is the perfect place for starting over, finding your way back home–and falling head over heels. . .
Ella Boudreaux has a lot to prove to her family, friends, and foes–and to herself. So when her marriage ends she decides to invest her energy and money into a place that brings back some of Ella’s happiest memories: the Abbott brothers’ garage. Maybe, if she puts her mind to it, she can teach skeptical, stubborn Mack Abbott how to make the business a true success. Which would be a lot easier if the hunky mechanic didn’t make her motor run quite so fast…and hot.
Mack was furious when his brother, Ford, sold his share of the business. He’s in no rush to team up with a wealthy divorcee who shows up to the garage in stilettos–and the longest, sexiest legs he’s seen in forever. But Ella’s grit and determination won’t quit…and soon Mack can see that she’s been down a few rough roads herself. Neither Mack nor Ella can deny the fierce attraction that’s revving up between them. Could it be that true love has been in the backseat all along…and they’ve finally found the key?
Cottonbloom is a town split between the Louisiana and Mississippi state line. I am always attracted to books set in the south. I jumped on this one when I ran across it.
Ella has moved to Cottonbloom to start over from a terrible divorce. She has purchased part ownership in a garage…yes you heard me right, a garage. Mack and his brothers are the other owners of this garage and Mack is NOT HAPPY with this situation.
I LOVED MACK! He is my favorite type of romance stud. He is the strong, silent type. After a rocky start with Ella, he becomes her knight is shining armor and she helps save him right back. Mack find his estranged mother and his older brother to help heal old wounds. Ella learns to stand up to her horrible ex-husband. With Mack and Ella as a team….they definitely heat up the pages quite nicely.
There is nothing new in this romance. It is the same as most romances. But, sometimes you just need a good one as a palate cleanser. I was in a rut and this book helped pull me out. The fantastic characters are what makes this story wonderful.
This is the sixth book in a series. I have not read any of this series and it did not affect the story at all. As a matter of fact, I have not read any books by this author. I will be adding her to my list! No Doubt!
I received this novel from the publisher via Netgalley for a honest review.
