Under the Hood by Sally Clements

When sexy mechanic Alice Starr mistakenly believes attorney Mark Jameson needs her help, he discovers he likes being rescued for a change. Smitten by her confidence, he hides his expertise so he has an excuse to see her again.

Starting their new all-female garage, Under the Hood, is keeping Alice and her friends busy. She doesn't have time for a man. But with one kiss, she and Mark have advanced into water so deep she's in danger of drowning. So why hasn't he called?

Mark wants to tell Alice the truth so they can pursue a relationship. But he's got even bigger problems at his office when his bitter aunt threatens Alice’s livelihood. He needs a plan, fast, or else Under the Hood and his chances with Alice could both be ruined.

This is a super quick novella- it was almost over as soon as it began.  At least it felt that way.  Maybe it was just my super human fast reading abilities...

I liked the concept of this book- Alice being a mechanic for an "all woman" garage, independent and in control meets Mark, who doesn't really need her help but allows the pretty girl do her job because, well, she is pretty and he is interested.  There is an abundance of chemistry going on.

Like I said, the book goes by quickly, and there isn't a ton of time to get to become invested in the characters but I did like the story.  It was easy, light reading with a happily ever after ending.  I just love those.

This book was full of sexual innuendo and references to sex but no actual sex.  Although if it would have gone one chapter longer, there would have been!  There is some mild swearing as well.  It was a little more than I prefer in a "clean romance" but that is just my personal preference.

You can purchase Under the Hood at Amazon.
