All is fair in love and auto maintenance.
Beau Winston is the nicest, most accommodating guy in the world. Usually.
Handsome as the devil and twice as charismatic, Beau lives a charmed life as everyone’s favorite Winston Brother. But since his twin decided to leave town, and his other brother hired a stunning human-porcupine hybrid as a replacement mechanic for their auto shop, Beau Winston’s charmed life has gone to hell in a handbasket.
Shelly Sullivan is not nice and is never accommodating. Ever.
She mumbles to herself, but won’t respond when asked a question. She glares at everyone, especially babies. She won’t shake hands with or touch another person, but has no problems cuddling with a dog. And her damn parrot speaks only in curse words.
Beau wants her gone. He wants her out of his auto shop, out of Tennessee, and out of his life.
The only problem is, learning why this porcupine wears her coat of spikes opens a Pandora’s box of complexity—exquisite, tempting, heartbreaking complexity—and Beau Winston soon discovers being nice and accommodating might mean losing what matters most.

I am enamored with Beau and Shelly, a couple after my own heart. The thing is with Penny Reid’s books is that you never know what to expect for every of her books. It’s always a surprise, unrevealing an interesting story, definitely not your usual romance, the topics are relevant, the romance is always on point, swoon worthy and will definitely sweep off your feet.
Beau is the joyful and charming one, always helping and caring for others. Did I tell you that I love the Winston brothers?? I’d love characters who are more than meet the eye, scratching the surface to see what was beneath, the complexities of their personalities. Beau was like that. Beautiful in and outside, with his fragility and insecurities well hidden behind.
Shelly… how can I say more than I adored her. There was something odd about her. Hired as the new mechanic, she was pushing Beau’s every buttons and testing his patience. That character was a mystery, wrapping in such beauty, intriguing and fascinating. With Shelly, appearances are deceiving, her brutal honesty and the strange behavior made sense, as the story unfolds, adding a piece to this intricate personality.
I was utterly captivated. From the laughing, to the swooning and almost to the point where my heart was aching for the characters, I felt it all. There was something very distinctive about that story, the characters aren’t perfect, they show their flaws, they are supportive of each other, never judging, just being there for the one they love. Sometimes fighting and arguing, challenging the other, loving the other with their whole heart. Full of strength and beautifully sincere.
I won’t tell you more about the storyline because it should be something you have to discover. As some parts of the heroine’s “lifestyle” or odd behavior was really interesting and once I finished, I couldn’t help to make some research as well. I was more than intrigued. There was an awareness, pretty well presented that made me want to know more about it.
Once again, another Winston brother stole my heart, his match was the kind of heroine I loved meeting in a romance novel. A few hours after reading it, my mind and my heart were still in Tennessee, still wanting to wander, just to continue to make that story last longer. Next book, please!!!!
