[Review] Drive Me Wild by Melanie Harlow


Title: Drive Me Wild
Author: Melanie Harlow
Publication Date: August 24, 2020

When Blair Beaufort literally crashes into Bellamy Creek wearing a ball gown and a tiara, I should have towed her car, said goodnight, and sent her packing.

I’m a mechanic, not a hotel manager. I’ve got enough on my plate trying to keep my shop from going under, my overbearing mother off my back, and my baseball team in contention for the league championship. I don’t have time for a former debutante with zero street smarts and a cash flow problem, even if she is crazy beautiful.

Problem is, she’s stranded in my small town, and I’m hiding a protective streak underneath my grumpy exterior that runs deep. So I offer her a place to stay and keep my hands to myself.

For exactly one night.

If only she weren’t so gorgeous. So funny. So eager to please. She’s a disaster behind the wheel, but she drives me wild without even trying–at work, at home, in the back of my truck . . . I can’t get enough of the way she makes me feel.

But I know better than to think it can last. She wants a fairy tale, and I’m no prince.

So when it comes time for her to leave, there’s nothing I can do but let her go.

No matter how much it hurts to say goodbye.

This was such a great small town romance! It starts with a bang—literally—and it’s such a charming story with no shortage of steam. Griffin is just such a cute grump stuck in his ways trying to get out of a difficult situation and somehow he finds a soft spot for the disaster that is Blair. There was instant chemistry (even if they tried to deny it) and I loved their relationship. Also, if you read Irresistible by her as well there are some cameos, but you don’t have to read one to read the other. There were also other characters to explore and I’m excited to see if more books are set in this world! You’ll love this book if you enjoy:

-grumpy mechanics who don’t do commitment and have the scars to show it
-old man baseball (cracks me up every time)
-loads of baking (including a secret pie recipe!)
-disaster rich girls looking for fresh starts
-friends-with-benefits/stuck together/grumpy & sunshine
-small town gossip
-overbearing mother’s who love to meddle
-bedtime stories that will make you blush
-small town romance
