Drive Me Wild by Melanie Harlow Review



* * * * * * * * * *


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.

I love small town romances, and Melanie Harlow writes some really wonderful ones. Drive Me Wild is the first in her new Bellamy Creek series about a charming small town, full of quirky characters, a bit of Americana and some seriously hot guys set in Harlow’s beloved Michigan.

Drive Me Wild kicks off the series with an opposites-attract romance that had a bit of a fateful feel to it. Blair, a formerly wealthy, former debutant rolls into Bellamy Creek with a bang—literally. Griffin, the town’s mechanic, comes to her rescue, and the chemistry between them is unlike anything he’s ever experience. Blair was a bit naïve, but she was also determined and optimistic, and I really liked her. Griffin was a good guy, a gentleman through and through, and he definitely struggled with his feelings for her.

Drive Me Wild was everything I love about small town romance. I loved this charming little town and the endearing characters that reside there, and I can’t wait to head back. If Griffin and Blair’s addictively sweet and steamy romance was the lead off of the series, I’m beyond excited to read whatever else Melanie Harlow has in store! Light-hearted, entertaining and sexy, Drive Me Wild was an unputdownable pleasure to read. Five smooches from me!
