Travis was once the bad boy who had a crush on the rich girl in town. Now a small town mechanic who owns the company, he doesn’t want to draw to much attention. He stays out of trouble and fulfills his sexual needs away from the small town gossips. But one woman keeps him wrapped up even if they both don’t know it.
Arabelle Drake once was the small town’s richest family until one day when the family fortune disappeared and her brother incarcerated. Many in the town lost their life savings, so there is no love lost when they see Arabelle in trouble. Arabelle has moved back home, well, not her home she grew up in, but her hometown. She’s working in the local flower shop while renting a house. Her natural sexual needs are a little outside of the norm, and she makes not excuses for them.
When Arabelle’s car breaks down, she doesn’t have the cash to fix it, so Travis makes her a deal to reduce the cost if she plays dirty games with him. The two go about having no-strings sex often and with some kink involved. They get to know each other and realize that each is not as they seem. Now I know Travis lighting the bill for money seems well, pimpish, he does want Arabelle, just not for a long term relationship. He learns though, that maybe he wants more. Arabelle for her part isn’t ashamed of her desires and uses this also as a way to work out her bad boy fantasies.
While the majority of the book is filled with sexy times, there are points with poignant talks that deepen our feelings for the couple. Some things happen that correct the bend in reality, some things are hard to get over and some things just fall into place. The plot is simple and short which gives you the sexy times you want without all the baggage that can come with stories now days.
