On a stormy night in Portland, Oregon, cynical ad exec Lily Bishop crashes into a stunning classic car driven by a dark, handsome stranger with strong hands. His powerful touch makes her remember old dreams she thought she abandoned twenty years ago. Back then, she traded her MFA in photography for a lucrative advertising position that twists people’s deepest desires into just another data point.
Though he’s struggling to take his hot rods to the big time, mechanic Raine Reyes won’t accept help from anyone -- certainly not an uptown woman like Lily whose miles-wide reckless streak brings out the repressed bad boy in him. He knows he should run from her offer to be the new face of her next expensive advertising campaign, but he’s too tempted… by her. He sees right through her to the forgotten needs, the neglected fantasies, and the woman she always wanted to be.
I really loved that it wasn’t an easy courtship, they had the physical relationship from the moment they met, but they needed to build the foundation for a real relationship. There are some ups and downs, and some misunderstandings and some serious fabulous moments. These two are meant for each other, and yes, there is an age difference but it goes to show that age is just a number, and when you click you click.
I seriously recommend this story, and will be watching and following this author. She’s won me over with her style and ability to create a story that immersed me fully in the world.
