What is “normal”?
When Brandon Kenner shows up at Kasey Ralston’s garage with a 1970 Chevelle SS 454, Kasey is smitten by both the man and his car. But Kasey is hiding an embarrassing secret: his love for old muscles goes beyond what most would consider normal. His unusual fetish has kept Kasey isolated—estranged from his family and even distant from his coworkers.
But when Brandon figures out the hot mechanic’s secret, he’s not repulsed. In fact, he finds Kasey intriguing, and he’s determined to have him for himself.
Everything about Brandon revs Kasey’s engine, and he’s more than willing to get down and dirty with the charming man. What worries Kasey is what will happen after. Is there any chance of a future for them? In the past, expecting anything long-term has only led to heartbreak. But Kasey can’t help hoping that, despite Kasey’s fetish, Brandon will be the exception.
Wowza! This was a hot little romance. I read book 1 by L.A. Witt, and thoroughly enjoyed the introduction into the Wrench Wars world, Last Mechanic Standing, (and am looking forward to book 3). And having only read a little bit of Marie Sexton’s work, I wasn’t quite prepared for the hotness that was this novella.
Kasey’s fetish for muscle cars is so believable. Similar to infant imprinting, he was at a vulnerable time in his life when he would go into his father’s junk cars, read porn magazines, and car magazines, and do what teenage boys naturally do. This imprinted on his life, and because his father had little regard for him since he was not biologically his, Kasey found shame in all he did. He reverted into a shy, reserved introvert who was embarrassed by a natural act.
Brandon was fantastic at allowing Kasey to be drawn out. He let him know that he found him attractive, and not strange at all. Yet when Kasey began to feel his self-confidence lagging, Brandon was able to smooth out the wrinkles in Kasey’s concerns. This also helped Kasey to feel better about himself as a person, allowing him to build relationships with his brother, and co-worker.
I’d love to see a little more of these two. Their relationship was just beginning to take shape, and I’d like to see how it continued to grow. Hopefully, there is more ahead for these two.
Oh, and did I mention that the sex was smoking HAWT!!!! DAMN!!!! Marie Sexton lives up to her name. 😉
