Hard to Break by Bella Jewel

Book Description

Quinn has spent her whole life working in her dad's garage, leaving her more comfortable with a carburetor than a curling iron. Her world is turned upside down when her beloved garage is bought by none other than world famous, sexy as sin, custom car builder, Tazen Watts. He's the one man she can't stand...even though he makes her hotter than a high performance engine in top gear.

Tazen has no use for Quinn, at least not professionally, and he's making sure she knows it. But there's a spark between them that she's finding hard to ignore. She's determined to prove her talent is as impressive as her sassy mouth. When she finds out Tazen is hiding a secret that could bring down his career and everyone involved in it, she wonders: is falling for him is going to be worth the risk?

**I received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.**

Quinn's whole world revolves around Pixie Wheels, her father's garage.  It is a representation for happier times when her mom was still alive and her father wouldn't drown his sorrows in a bottle.  When her world is threatened, Quinn will do anything she can to save it.  Even if the threat is sexy as hell, custom car builder Tazen Watts.

Tazen wants to expand his custom car shops into Florida and Pixie Wheels is the perfect location.  He soon finds that Quinn isn't going to let it go without a fight.  But Tazen always gets what he wants and he evenutally does, destroying Quinn's world.  

Still not willing to give up her home, Quinn demands a job at the garage.  Tazen, being a complete MALE, gives one to her: as the shop's receptionist.  But beggers can't be choicers, so Quinn takes it in hopes she can eventually prove she knows what she is doing under the hood of a car (which she does).  And as an added bonus, she can continue to torment Tazen.

Feelings of resentment and mistrust turn into something different.  Tazen shows a different side of himself with Quinn.  Same with Quinn.  She doesn't feel that she has to be so tough and in control with him.  They grow as individuals and as a couple throughout the book.
