Hell on wheels meets hell in high heels.
Bad boy mechanic Josh Stone likes to get his hands dirty any way he can—the filthier, the better. Ever since his wife walked out on him and their young son, he’s only had room in his heart for two loves: the kid and cars.
Roped into playing his best buddy’s gay boyfriend during a romance writers convention, the player meets the girl who’s gonna rock his world. Leelee Songchild. Shy, bashful, beautiful Leelee who blushes at the drop of a hat yet writes hardcore smut to rival Josh’s backlist of Penthouse Forum.
The only problem is his hands are tied. Josh can’t stab his old friend/fake lover in the back even though all he wants to do is take luscious Leelee to bed, and maybe, love her. When the truth comes out, all hell breaks loose.
Too bad romance is just for books.

Character Interview with Josh Stone:
Josh, it’s good to have you here today.
Awesome, Jess. You know I started getting the hang of this blog-type thing at the LitLuv convention. It ain’t so bad being interviewed, as long as it’s not by Jules Gem.
I must admit to being very curious about you. You’re supposed to be a Carolina Bad Boy, who owns a garage, right?
That’s what they say. The bad boy part. Guess I got a bit of a reputation. I do own a garage…passed down from my dad. Now he was one in a million.
Well, despite some of that rough talk and naughtiness, I’ve got to say that I suspect you’re a bit of a softie.
What? Nah. Not me. Don’t be fooled. You know, unless it comes to the kid I guess. My ma, my best buddy, and—shit—well, Leelee could probably talk me into just about anything. She got me to take in that mangy cat of hers, didn’t she?
Yes, she did! And I hear you were talked into something pretty significant. You’re a pretty good friend. Did I hear you pretended to be your best friend’s boyfriend at a romance writers’ convention?
Unfortunately that part is not a rumour. He needed a boyfriend because he’s been pretending to be gay for years. Of course I’d do anything for Nicky including being his bear. We didn’t make a very good couple though.
I must say I agree. That convention sounded absolutely crazy. Are they really like that?
That part is also true. I wish it wasn’t. I can’t remember how many times my ass was groped, my package grabbed, and my rear end got sent out all over Twitter.
And a certain young lady writer caught your eye. Care to tell us about her?
Leelee Songchild. She is one fine woman. She’d have to be to put up with my shit. From the second I saw her, I was a goner. Pretending to be gay didn’t work out so well when all I wanted to do at the convention was jump Leelee’s bones. She’s incredible—talented, sexy, and one of the sweetest women I’ve ever met.
Sounds perfect for you. And what does your little boy think?
The kid is over the moon. He missed his mom so much, you know? It’s good for him, and Leelee’s great with him.
And what have your employees at the garage said about all this?
They haven’t shut the hell up since they found out about her. They think Leelee’s the next best thing since the freakin’ fancy new air compressor I bought. As long as they keep their eyes and hands to themselves I’m fine with it.
You’re a good sport, mister. And pretty secure in your masculinity, too.
You’re not so bad yourself. I’m not too worried what people think about my sexuality or me. I mean, even when I was faking gay, the women still figured me for the top in the relationship.
LOL! The speculation never ends. I’m glad it doesn’t faze you. Thanks for being here!
My pleasure, Jess. Don’t forget to stop by the garage sometime for a free oil change. We got you covered.
