Review- Collision Course by Marie Harte

Summary-

Ace mechanic Lou Cortez has always had a way with the ladies, so he can't understand why lovely florist Josephine -Joey- Reeves won't give him the time of day.

Joey knows all about mistakes. After getting pregnant at fifteen, she's spent the past nine years building a life for her and her son. This sexy mechanic is one misstep she's not going to make. But the more time she spends with Lou, the hotter things get. Soon Joey's left with a choice: keep things casual, or reveal all to Lou and hope he accepts her-and her son-for who they are.

Review-

Collision Course by Marie Harte is the fourth book in her Body Shop Bad Boys series. This series basically follows a group of friends who are mechanics. I have been following this series from the start so I was looking forward to reading Collision Course. This is what I'm assuming the last book in the series and Lou's book was quite an anticipated one for me. While the book did not completely meet my expectations, it was still a good one.

Let's start with Lou. Lou is a mechanic but he is also an artist. He does paint jobs and artwork on various vehicles along with being a mechanic. Lou has always had a way with the ladies and after being one of the few males in his family taking care of his multiple sisters and female cousins he doesn't want to be tied down by relationships. When Lou meets Joey though things change.

Joey was a sweet girl. She was a florist who had worked hard to get where she was while taking care of her son. She got pregnant at a very young age and that made her parents very judgemental of her decisions and choices. Joey was definitely hesitant when it came to Lou. She liked him but she would always put her son before any relationships.

Lou and Joey had chemistry. Lou did not want to be tied down by relationships and Joey had her son to take care of. But they could not stay away from each other. I liked Joey and Lou in the beginning but later on in the book Lou's attitude towards Joey's son and relationships go annoying. The whole commitment phobic plot can only go so far without any genuine reasons.

We also get to meet all the previous couples and that was fun to see. This series follows a bunch of 
guys whose friendship and bromance is great to see. I think there were also hints thrown in for some future couples and books so I wouldn't be surprised if we got another spin off series. If you enjoy contemporary romances you should definitely give this series a try.
