Presley Marks has just become a cliché: the jilted bride.
Wearing a white dress, standing in front of her friends and family, she announces that her fiancé—according to his text—has forgotten about the wedding.
Humiliated and angry, she hides from the world in the mundane routine of her life. Working at the Clifton Forge Garage isn’t glamorous, but it’s safe from the spotlight.
At least it was, until Shaw Valance comes to town.
The notorious Hollywood actor is starring in a movie based on the town’s infamous murder. When he’s not on set, Shaw hovers at the garage, watching as they build his custom motorcycle and irritating her with his handsome smile. He was supposed to leave once filming wrapped and go back to his fancy life, not buy the house next door.
But Shaw might regret that purchase once Presley’s ex-fiancé returns, bringing with him a war between old rivals that could burn both their houses down.

I was excited for this book. Presley's character had me intrigued in the first two books of this series. I knew her book would be full of spunk, and I wasn't wrong.
Presley is as hard as they come. Until she isn't. Her facade of being hard as stone eventually has a few cracks in it. I loved seeing both her tough side and her vulnerable side. The author does a really great job at mixing the two sides of her really well.
I admit I cringed a little when I saw that her possible love interest was a movie star. I'm not usually a fan of celebrity type books. But this one isn't like those I've read in the past. It's unique. It's not glitz and glamour. I was glad for that. I enjoyed the fierceness and persistence that Shaw possessed in this book. It made for a very interesting and entertaining read.
Overall, this book was very enjoyable. I devoured it pretty quickly. I am looking forward to the next book in this series. This author has become go-to now that I have read all of her books. No one can deny her talent for weaving a good story.
