ABOUT:

Cottonbloom is the perfect place for starting over, finding your way back home—and falling head over heels. . .

Ella Boudreaux has a lot to prove to her family, friends, and foes—and to herself. So when her marriage ends she decides to invest her energy and money into a place that brings back some of Ella’s happiest memories: the Abbott brothers’ garage. Maybe, if she puts her mind to it, she can teach skeptical, stubborn Mack Abbott how to make the business a true success. Which would be a lot easier if the hunky mechanic didn’t make her motor run quite so fast…and hot.

Mack was furious when his brother, Ford, sold his share of the business. He’s in no rush to team up with a wealthy divorcée who shows up to the garage in stilettos—and the longest, sexiest legs he’s seen in forever. But Ella’s grit and determination won’t quit…and soon Mack can see that she’s been down a few rough roads herself. Neither Mack nor Ella can deny the fierce attraction that’s revving up between them. Could it be that true love has been in the backseat all along…and they’ve finally found the key?

As I started reading Set the Night on Fire I wasn’t sure what I was in for, but the synopsis sounded like a pretty hot enemies to lovers story so I pushed through the first chapter and that’s when things got good.

Really good.

Ella left her cheating dirtbag of an ex-husband and decided to start over in Cottonbloom, using part of her divorce settlement to invest in a garage that specializes in restoration. For Ella this job is a connection to the brother she loved more than anything. But for garage owner and all around big brother bossy business head honcho, Mack, Ella’s presence is a thorn in his side. A reminder of his failings.

And he wants Ella gone.

Bye bye. Hasta la vista, baby.

After a cruel joke and plenty of verbal barbs, Ella and Mack finally start to behave like professional adults. Slowly these two realize they have more in common than they realized, never mind the chemistry that flowed between them whenever they were together. The thing that made Set the Night on Fire different from other reads is the real question of how Ella and Mack could possibly move forward when there was something really big standing between them, namely her portion of the family business…that he wants back. Desperately. That dynamic made for an interesting story that kept me intrigued.

The side story with Mack’s brother Ford and the mother who abandoned the brothers was really touching and made me want to know the Abbott brothers even more.
