Underneath the axle grease and tats
He’s a gentleman
Foley Sanders figured he’ll always be content with a life of cars and casual hookups. Until a run-in with Cyn, a statuesque firecracker with a hate-on for men, leaves him bewitched and intrigued-much to her annoyance.
Maybe Cynthia Nichols was a little hard on Foley, that muscular, tattooed, super-hot mechanic next door. But she’s tired of feeling defensive about her size and has sworn off men. She’s got a new job, new life, perfect plan. Foley has trouble written all over him-no way is she going to fall for his charms.
Foley might look like a bad idea, but underneath, he’s all gentleman. Too bad Cyn’s not buying it. What’s a bad boy to do when the goddess of his dreams won’t give him the time of day?

Foley looks like an ex-con with all his muscles, tattoos, and foul language, but he has one hell of a heart beneath his scruffy exterior. He’s the kind of man who loves hard and do whatever he can to take care of those he cares for. To him family are friends and friends are family.
Cyn is a sassy, take no prisoners kind of woman. It’s one of the things Foley loves about her, but when he discovers the route of all her baggage he has to tread carefully. She’s extra touchy on certain subjects.
Not only do you get Foley and Cyn’s relationship from their view-point, but then there are parts where you get to see how Sam feels about the whole situation too. In all honesty I think it was a little overwhelming at times. There are moments when five or more people are all conversing and it gets confusing with everyone chiming in or doing something that affects the conversation.
I do like the characters and the way they intermingle, but at the same time I think certain parts are overwritten which kept me from falling into the story.
As for Foley and Cyn…she spends most of her time in self-doubt and he spends it reassuring her. It gets kind of tiring after a while. But when they’re lost in each other, all is right within their world.
My Favorite Laughable Moment: It was hilarious when Foley met Cyn’s mother for the first time. His little impromptu history was something else.
