Alex Dawn is saying no to men. No to bad relationships, disappointments, and smooth-talkers. Focusing on her family and her job at Payton and Sons Automotive keeps her mind occupied and her heart content. She doesn’t really miss a man’s touch, until one night, a man shows up with the body of a god and a voice from her dirtiest dreams.
L.M. Spencer is only in Tory, Maryland, to scope out the town as a possible site for one of his company's hotels. The British businessman didn’t expect his car to break down or to find the hottest little American he’s ever seen holding a tire iron, piercing him with bright blue eyes.
They agree to one hot night, one dirty deed to burn out the chemistry between them. But from their first kiss, Alex can’t stop saying yes to this man. And when Spencer’s company threatens everything she cares about, they must make the choice to stand together or apart.

This one was my favourite from the series Mechanics of Love! Actually, it’s one my favourite romance books ever. Man, this book. Aww all the feels. And British accent. Sometimes I really wish these stories were possible in real life. I mean, come on, we are talking contemporary not paranormal. I am not requesting a vampire or a shadow hunter. Just a sexy, smart guy with a British accent. Is that asking too much? I didn’t think so.
We meet our heroine Alex, and she is a mechanic. Badass mechanic with a bit of traumatic past, due to her asshole, abusive ex-boyfriend. But she is down to earth. And caring for her sister and her niece. And her speeches. Oh my god. This woman is awesome.
She hopped on one foot as she pulled off a shoe and hurled it at him. He dodged that one, but the other one hit him in the thigh when she threw it with a frustrated grown. “What the fuck woman?”
“I can’t believe…” She growled again. “I can’t believe I did this.” She gestured to her body. “I spent an hour and a half getting ready. Do you even know the last time I spent an hour and a half getting ready for anything?”
Spencer stood, staring at her as she hollered at him in the rain. He shock his head.
“Never!” she yelled. “I’ve never spent that much time putting on makeup and doing my hair and picking out a stupid fucking dress! Ugh. I hate this dress. I hate those fucking shoes that hurt my feel. And I hate, I hate, that I took all this time trying to impress you. To show you that I can be a fucking lady, worthy of… I don’t know… being on your arm. And instead you bring me here.”
I fucking loved Alex.
Spencer is a British hottie. He was down to earth too. And attentive, and he cared about Alex, and he always made sure she was enjoying herself. Respect man, respect. Sometimes he was so adorably awkward that you just have to love him!
The romance was perfect. The building up was super awesome. Both of them had some baggage, but that is what makes the story even better.
Do yourself a favor and pick this Dirty Deeds up. It can be read as a standalone, so you can just go at it. It’s so good. So so good.
