All they have left is their pride.
Elliot Smith was once a hotshot attorney, but those days are long gone. A midlife crisis of conscience has left him with shattered confidence, abandoned by his former friends and scraping by at a legal aid clinic. When a smoking hot bad boy rescues him from the side of the road, Elliot is sure he doesn’t stand a chance.
After a misspent youth boosting cars, Lucas Kelly runs his own garage and is finally getting his life back on track. He isn’t about to risk everything by daring to hope for something more, especially not with a man so far above his pay-grade.
The heat between them is enough to have them questioning everything they thought they knew about themselves. But is explosive chemistry enough to keep them together when Elliot’s career threatens to drive them apart?
I really liked this book. Great debut. I loved Elliot and Lucas together. Great start to a series and I’m really excited for the next book. Written in dual POV, this book really shows the differences between Lucas and Elliot, be it their workplace or age. They are complete opposites but when together, they are explosive. While not insta love, I would’ve loved to see a bit more progression in their relationship.
There is a little bit of mystery and slight angst but overall a great read. I’m curious about the secondary characters, especially Alex, Elliot’s boss. Also Maksim, whose book is next.
