Fender Bender Blues by Niecey Roy

Book Description

 January 24, 2013
Rachel Bennett loved her job until the day she finds herself doubting her choices. Now she's hunting for a new career, but starting over isn't easy. Her plan is simple --no distractions until she finds her dream job. She didn't plan on fate throwing her a curveball in the form of a fender bender with a sexy guy in an expensive suit.

Craig Larsen is a wealthy, successful business owner with a plan of his own: survive his current PR nightmare and stay away from his overly determined ex-girlfriend. His need for control and personal success is turned upside down when he meets Rach, a sassy redhead who can't drive.

Soon they find themselves battling with Rach's grumpy old neighbor, toilet-papering the trees of a high-school nemesis, and fighting over the last slice of pizza. Can two very different people plus one fender bender equal a chance at forever?

Where to buy:

First a message from Niecey herself that she posted on her facebook page:
Warning: If you are looking for the perfect heroine all wrapped up in a bow, you will not find one in Fender Bender Blues. If you enjoy a dose of real, a quirky hot mess and a hero who flips a brat switch the heroine's didn't know she had, then come join the fun :)

My Review: 5 stars
Who knew lip gloss could be so dangerously wonderful. Want to understand that statement then read this book. 

Rachel struggled with things in her life and was searching for what makes her happy. She was looking for a new career and didn't want distractions of any kind. She is a fun character and I loved her. She is what my mom would call a spitfire, full of energy and fiesty. She just seemed like a real person that you would find in everyday life. Unlike some characters I have read she is not perfect and has her faults but she is real. Some people have said she is rude, childish, and just  bad but you find that in life and you may even have a friend or Know someone like that and that is what make the character come to life. Craig is the main male character and he is wealthy & a successful business owner. Although I like him he is a little cocky at times and works way to much. Again, this makes his character come to life because he seems real unlike the perfect gorgeous men you find in a lot of love stories. Rach's best friend, Leah is who kind of keeps Rach under control and their friendship is something that I think everyone should have and Craig is the brother of Leah's boyfriend. Ha! Ha!

So, without to much of a spoiler this is not the typical love story where you know from the start that everyone is perfect and they all fall in love right away. It seems like Rach & Craig love to hate each other but it makes the story fun. Niecey Roy knows how to tell a story and balances the right amount of fun and sexiness together. I actually love this book so much that I have read it twice. I call it my good mood book because if I need to be put in a good mood this will do it. I look forward to reading more from Niecey and you can bet that when she has something new come out you will know about it from here. So, go buy a copy and read it then you can decide for yourself if you like or hate Rachel and find out why lip gloss can be dangerous and should come with it's own warning label. ;)
