John Stark is an ex-cop who started his own repossession business. He likes the element of danger that repossessing cars provides. However, when he gets outmaneuvered by the sexiest woman he has ever seen, he rethinks his position of not opening a sub shop like his family wanted him too. John was not expecting the lovely dame to show up at his business asking for the secretary position. He knows he is making a big mistake with the infuriating, self-absorbed woman, but he really needs help in the office. John was not expecting the blistering passion that erupts inside of him every time he is near her. Will John open his heart and let the woman who captured it in? Or will his overbearing personality cause her to run to another man?
Within the pages of HOT WHEELS AND HIGH HEELS, you will find a lovely romance between two people who are complete opposites. Jane Graves pens a funny tale with compelling characters woven into an intriguing plot. I laughed at the witty bantering between John and Darcy. The secondary characters are vibrant and fun to read.
Darcy is facing the “big” birthday and has lost everything. She is stubborn, self-absorbed and scared about how she is going to make it on her own. She has a low self-esteem. I could not help but to yell at her that she does not need a man to make it on her own. She thinks John is strong-willed, overbearing and controlling. John is a sexy man who thinks he has to be in control of everything. He has a hard time of giving voice to his emotions. I have never read a charming tale where two people were so conflicting that the author could make their love work. But Ms. Graves does a great job of it.
HOT WHEELS AND HIGH HEELS is a fun read that will have you laughing and rooting for the characters.
