Everyone at Jim Irving’s garage is gung ho about Wrench Wars, a new reality show featuring mechanics. Everyone, that is, except talented mechanic Chandler Scott, the sole employee who has refused to sign the contract. The rest of the mechanics are pressuring him too, because without Chandler—and his volatile interactions with his boss—no one’s getting on the show.
Chandler’s one ally is Jim’s son, Mark, who’s being forced to work for his dad until he pays down his student loans or finds a better job—and who’s been Chandler’s secret lover for a while.
Then a playful tryst in the garage blows up in their faces, giving the network ammo to blackmail Chandler by threatening to out Mark to his father. Now Chandler is backed into a corner, and Mark needs to decide how far he’s willing to go to protect the man who’s been sharing his bed… and may have stolen his heart
This book captured my attention soon as I'd read the blurb.
I'm a sucker of mechanics in my reading. And this is L.A. Witt, one of my auto-read MM author.
Add a gorgeous cover, then I'm sold.
As mentioned on the blurb, Chandler and Mark has been 'best friend' (with benefit) for two years.
It's just they're never really realized that it's been a long time they're fall for each other.
Jim, Mark's homophobic father is the reason. Mark is also has own reason not to coming out to his parent, i think I can understand that.
Good thing is, Chandler is a very patient man, he waits.
And then some people blackmailing him and distressed the hell out of him.
Mark can't see him like that. It destroyed him seeing Chandler is getting in the nerves everyday.
And he stand up for his lover and told his father in front of everyone, he's not going to stay in the closet anymore. Not for his father, not for money, not for his future.
It's all for Chandler , a man he's been in love with for so long.
I loved the way Chandler and mark's interaction, stealing intimacy in the middle of work, taking care of each other with their own way. Chandler let them blackmailed him just to protect Mark and Mark coming out for Chandler's sake, protected the man he loved from his father?
That's the sweetest things lovers could do, right?
At the end of the story, I'm glad they can figure it out, not too desperate about what future would bring, because, hey, Chandler wants forever with Mark. What to do next after their plan, I believe they will have their HEA somehow.
This is short, and fun. Lots of hot sex read in rainy day, just what I need.
Two mechanics, hot steamy sex, and a happy ending.
What's not to love?
