Tagline: On a crash course for love… and disaster.
When Sass Hogan catches her boyfriend slow-dancing and doing the tongue-tango with Tori Double-D-Cup Hunter, she pays him back the only way she knows how—by taking a tire iron to his beloved ’67 Mustang Fastback. There’s only one problem. She’s destroyed the wrong car.
Jordan Michaels wants his car fixed, now, and he wants Sass’s auto body shop to do it. But the handsome blond has a secret−he’s really Jordan Carlyle of Carlyle’s Classics, Hogan’s biggest competitor, and he’s determined to prove himself to his family.
As Sass and Jordan get to know each other, the depth of the attraction has them falling in love. But a relationship based on lies will only leave them primed for the worst wreck of their lives.

My Review: 4 1/2 stars
I loved reading this story that is essentially a modern day re-telling of "The Taming of the Shrew." It has all the same basic elements of the story, but it's set in a classic car restoration shop. The characters even acknowledge the fact in the story, except they're comparing themselves to another re-telling, which was the movie "Ten Things I Hate About You." I really enjoyed the whole thing. I loved how Sass went nuts on that car and smashed the crap out of it. Sass's instant reaction to meeting Jordan was quite interesting, that attraction that they both felt was good. But they were both keeping secrets from each other. Jordan was there to get the low-down on the place where Sass worked. Towards the end, when everything came out about who they were and what each of them had done - that scene was explosive. Everything that came after that was icing on the cake. The way they found a way to continue doing what each of them loved, but together was pretty sweet. Very innovative also, I thought. Jordan had to earn back Sass's trust and it took some time, but things worked out for the best. Daire did a great job with this story, and I would be lying if I said it wasn't good. It was bloody fantastic from the start to the finish. I loved reading about the cars and the characters. Daire made this story her own, and did a damn fine job of it.
With a degree in archaeology, Daire St. Denis was sure she was destined to be the next female Indiana Jones.That didn’t quite pan out but she still managed her fair share of exotic adventures. Some of her most daring escapades include, skydiving in Canada, being trapped in the Great Pyramid of Giza, searching for tigers in the foothills of the Himalayas, touring Germany by motorbike, scuba diving off the coast of the Philippines, meeting Medusa in the bowels of Istanbul and climbing her way to the top of a number of mountains and crags in Canada and the US.
Daire loves to pen erotic tales full of passion and unexpected adventure and her colorful past has provided ample inspiration for her muse. She now lives in the wilds of Canada with her two poorly trained dogs, two insufferable cats, two spirited children and one extremely patient husband.
