When Reggie’s garage became part of a popular reality show, business went through the roof. And he supposes having his shop in the black is a fair trade for jumping through the network’s hoops.
As the show’s lowest-ranking producer, Wes is tasked with proposing a new spin-off show to Reggie. The sexy mechanic makes him sweat on a normal day, but this time, Wes is holding cards he can’t show. With execs breathing down his neck, he’s expected to pitch a show Reggie will never agree to do, even if his rejection puts his existing show on the line.
The network is counting on Reggie refusing to sign. But they’re not counting on their messenger falling for the man they’re trying to fire.
This book is what I would describe as a fast paced short story. Even though it is a short story there is still depth too it.
Reggie has signed his auto shop up for a reality show “Wrench Wars”. It may not be perfect having all the cameras and the crew inside of his shop but no one can dispute the fact that because of being on the reality show business has picked up because of it.
The problem is the TV executives have decided they want rid of Reggie and his crew. They cannot do this without breaking the contract and having to pay out. Well that is until they come up with a plan. The plan is to create a spinoff and Reggie has to star in it.
Wes (the producer) is sent in to pitch the idea to Reggie. The problem there is both men are attracted to the other but neither man has had the guts to admit it.
In this book the sparks fly between these two men once they both man up and admit their feelings.
I really enjoyed this read. It is a light read with just enough drama to not overwhelm the reader and just enough chemistry between Reggie and Wes to make you fall in love with their characters and the story. I enjoyed the fact that this book had issues for the characters but was also about the connection between the two men. L.A. Witt did a wonderful job on this short story and I look forward to more books in the Wrench Wars series.
