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.

About Lissa Matthews

Living in North Carolina, talented, multi-published author, Lissa Matthews, has many loves in her life: Family, friends, NASCAR, football, music of all kinds, cooking, BDSM, and last, but not least, coffee. She loves it so much she and those who know her are surprised she hasn’t floated away on a caffeine-induced cloud while giving life to feisty heroines and hunky heroes.

Lissa’s love of romance came from every book she has ever picked up. No matter what she read, she fell in love with the written word. The promise of escape, the deep, intriguing characters, and the winding journey from beginning to end, constantly drew her into bookstores and libraries as she was growing up.

Her first stories were written in junior high and she kept it up through college. She would stay up late at night when her kids were little reading romance and still penning her own stories. In 2007, when she and her family moved to North Carolina from Florida, she began pursuing writing as a profession and she couldn’t imagine doing anything else… Well, except maybe writing in her own cupcake bakery/coffee shop. But that dream is a ways down the road… Lucky for Lissa, she believes in dreams coming true.

Lissa is married with two children and seven, yes, seven cats. She blames her oldest child for the cats.

  • Just a plain old unapologetically hot and sexy story. Sounds good for the occasions when longer drama-filed stories can get to one. 😉

    • Shari Delighted Read

      Lissa Matthews stories are generally quick, have an older curvy woman to the young alpha male and a side of southern hospitality rolled up in sex. There, I said it 🙂

  • Might be too hot for me 🙂

    • Shari Delighted Read

      Probably. I tend to like mine spicy and hot. I can’t stand sweet stories for the most part.

  • I’m glad that there was still enough that made you feel like you connected with the couple!

    • Shari Delighted Read

      Yep, they were interesting.

  • Trading sex for fixing her car. Hmm. Not sure I would be happy with that, but if they are okay with it, okay. It was a quick one. I’m glad you enjoyed it.

    • Shari Delighted Read

      The trading part comes off as sounding wrong, but mostly he was using that line to get what he wanted and she wanted it too. So they were just covering up that they wanted each other with a deal that sounded bad. It’s quick and full of sexy times.
