Review/Giveaway – Mustang Sassy by Daire St. Denis


               Published February 24th 2014 by Entangled: Edge – Add it on Goodreads


When Sass Hogan catches her boyfriend slow-dancing and doing the tongue-tango with Tori Double-D-Cup Hunter, she pays him back the only way she knows how—by taking a tire iron to his beloved ’67 Mustang Fastback. There’s only one problem. She’s destroyed the wrong car.

Jordan Michaels wants his car fixed, now, and he wants Sass’s auto body shop to do it.  But the handsome blond has a secret−he’s really Jordan Carlyle of Carlyle’s Classics, Hogan’s biggest competitor, and he’s determined to prove himself to his family.

As Sass and Jordan get to know each other, the depth of the attraction has them falling in love. But a relationship based on lies will only leave them primed for the worst wreck of their lives.

Loved it, loved it loved it!! This was surprisingly a one sitting book, over 350 pages of romance excellence without one paranormal element at all!! There are certain publishers that I will review for because they represent authors I follow, and sometimes, well let's just say the fare is less than palatable. I will do a polite three star, "I got through it without injuring myself" review or I'll email them and say I can do a promo but my review will NOT be flattering. I really expected this to be a politely worded "UGH" review. Well paddle my behind and call me Jethro, this booked rocked the house!

First off, Sassy, OMG, I luuuuurved her!! An expert car mechanic, this girl grew up with a father who preferred to be called Buck, rather than Dad. She had virtually no female influences since the age of six, and her father, let's just say I wanted to hurt him, sympathetic single father or not. IMHO, one word ...... ASSSSSSSS!! He gave Sassy a roof and a job and that was pretty much the extent of his involvement. I would really like to rip into him a lot more, but that would involve spoilers. For such a crappy upbringing, she was remarkably stable. Weeeeell, except for the tee tiny anger problem, which lands her into trouble in the first place. Just think Carrie Underwood....... *snort*

Jordan was just phenomenal! As much of an anti-hero as I have ever encountered, he was a walking, talking screw up of a man. Luckily, he was just pretty enough that he could get by with it. He is trying to recover from one mistake when he steps right into the pile again. The characterization is just one of the outstanding elements in this book. Mustang Sassy is also a truly hot love story. I would have enjoyed it without the spice, but hey, the overt sexiness didn't hurt. Case in point the whole butterfly in the pants incident * incendiary*.
This was , to me, just an absolute PRIME example of what a contemporary romance should be. Engaging, evolving, sexy and memorable.  Just a true joy of a read! Brava and extremely well done.

With a degree in archaeology, Daire St. Denis was sure she was destined to be the next female Indiana Jones. That didn’t quite pan out but she still managed her fair share of exotic adventures. Some of her most daring escapades include, skydiving in Canada, being trapped in the Great Pyramid of Giza, searching for tigers in the foothills of the Himalayas, touring Germany by motorbike, scuba diving off the coast of the Philippines, meeting Medusa in the bowels of Istanbul and climbing her way to the top of a number of mountains and crags in Canada and the US.

Daire loves to pen erotic tales full of passion and unexpected adventure and her colorful past has provided ample inspiration for her muse. She now lives in the wilds of Canada with her two poorly trained dogs, two insufferable cats, two spirited children and one extremely patient husband.
