Inspire Me: A Hot Rod Novel by Jenna Dales

On a stormy night in Portland, Oregon, cynical ad exec Lily Bishop crashes into a stunning classic car driven by a dark, handsome stranger with strong hands. His powerful touch makes her remember old dreams she thought she abandoned twenty years ago. Back then, she traded her MFA in photography for a lucrative advertising position that twists people’s deepest desires into just another data point.

Though he’s struggling to take his hot rods to the big time, mechanic Raine Reyes won’t accept help from anyone -- certainly not an uptown woman like Lily whose miles-wide reckless streak brings out the repressed bad boy in him. He knows he should run from her offer to be the new face of her next expensive advertising campaign, but he’s too tempted… by her. He sees right through her to the forgotten needs, the neglected fantasies, and the woman she always wanted to be.

Overall Rating:  3 Rockin’ ★★★

Inspire Me: A Hot Rod Novel by Jenna Dales is contemporary romance story about a 41 year-old advertising executive, Lily Bishop, and a 24 year-old mechanic/garage owner, Raine Reyes.  I was really interested in the beginning and fell in love with the ruggedly sexy Raine.  There were times the story felt rushed and underdeveloped.  I really wanted more…and the ending left me even more frustrated.  It just ended without explanation.  I'm not sure if that is because there will be another book or not.
