Pretending to be a couple may drive them crazy.
Feisty mechanic Betty Smith should have only one thing on her mind—catching the conman who swindled her mother. Not the sexy stranger who kissed her then completely disappeared.
Undercover FBI agent Joe Carter needs to focus on the bad guy who got away, not the gorgeous headstrong brunette who watches too many cop shows and keeps interfering in his case. Unfortunately, catching their prey before he skips town means working together.
But while entering the vintage car rally as a couple seemed like a good idea at the time, faking feelings for each other turns out to be the easiest part. Neither one can allow anything to get in their way, but staying away from each other is impossible. They both know, though, once their plan is complete, so is their time together.
Thank you to the publisher for providing me with an e-copy in exchange for an honest review.
When all else fails and you can’t decide what to read, pick up a Bliss imprint. They are the perfect quick weekend reads that will always leave you feeling hopeful and filled with butterflies.
I had never read any of the previous Under the Hood books by Sally Clements, but thoroughly enjoyed the third novella out of the bunch and I just might have to go back and read the other two. 🙂
Racing the Hunter’s Moon is quirky and fun. The heroine is a sexy and feisty mechanic named mechanic who wants nothing more than to catch the man that conned her mother several years ago. Of course her plan didn’t include bumping into an FBI agent/carpenter named Joe. However, the chemistry between these two is definitely there and something that neither can ignore.
The plot was unique and not something that appealed to me from the start, but I found myself enjoying it the more I read. A vintage car rally is something I had never heard of, but thought it made the story interesting and unlike any other Bliss title I had ever read before. Sure, there were times I thought Betty needed to back off and let Joe do his job, but that’s also part of her charm. She protects those she loves which isn’t a bad quality to have. Even though it stepped on Joe’s toes, I think he admired her for that quality as well. 🙂
So, if you’re already planning ahead to next weekend and what you’re going to read, why not throw in a Bliss book? Their quick reads and add a little extra romance in your life that’ll leave you smiling and wanting more.
Four out of five stars.
