wrenchesregretsrealitychecks-WittWhen 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.

First Edition published by Amber Quill Press, 2015.

This was another quick, good read in the series. You don’t need to read the rest of the series to understand this book. However, to really understand all the ins and outs then it is worth it to read at least the first one. I am not sure where exactly the second one stands in this universe since it wasn’t really related to this one or the first one (except for the mechanic), but the first book and this one have connections.

This was another book in the Wrench Wars series that made me want MORE. I am hoping that they’ll come back to these guys later in the series or at least mention them in another book. Even with the book’s short length Witt did a good job of developing the romance and compatibility between Wes and Reggie. It’s amazing that what some authors can do in 67 pages that other authors can’t do in 500 pages.

My favorite thing about this series so far is that the mechanics aren’t stereotypically dumb, and the men they are dating are so varied. Wes is a total sweetheart and I like the contrast between him and Reggie (who was rugged). This series is a kind of study in contrasts, but there isn’t a lot of conflict. There is a small amount of angst but it is mostly quick, fluffy reads.


.A. Witt is an abnormal M/M romance writer who has finally been released from the purgatorial corn maze of Omaha, Nebraska, and now spends her time on the southwestern coast of Spain. In between wondering how she didn’t lose her mind in Omaha, she explores the country with her husband, several clairvoyant hamsters, and an ever-growing herd of rabid plot bunnies.
