*I was given an ARC copy of the book in exchange for an honest review*
This book is my FAVORITE KM book ever! I quickly fell in love with Jude and Paige. This story was so relatable to me. I have dealt with abuse in a relationship so I totally connected with Paige when she started to have doubts about her relationship with Jude. I felt the exact same way going into the relationship that I am in now. Also, I loved Birdie and Blake so much for very different reasons. Birdie likes to enjoy life and be the life of the party. Blake just tugged at my heartstrings as he started to get warmed
up to being with his mom more. As always, Kristine likes to make her villains worse than the last one and I just couldn't wait to see how it all ended for Dean. If you haven't read any of Kristine Jason's books, what have you been doing with your life?!? Pick one up right now!!!
You must Check out Jude!
How do you cope when your best friend is literally dating the woman of your dreams? If you're Jude Kendrick, you hide behind your Rude Jude facade.
The thing is, Paige Daniels was drawn to Jude the moment she laid eyes on him, and after one steamy kiss, she was a goner.
While Jude and Paige were made for each other, Jude is a fixer - and some things are NOT easy to fix. Especially when Paige's past catches up with her.
In this second volume of Mechanics & Mayem, Kristine Mason has turned up the volume with a villainous ex-husband that definitely has murder on his mind.
This book is equal parts adventure, steamy romance, terror and sweetness. You must Check it out! You'll be glad you did.
