Lucy couldn’t afford to replace the wrench that someone had taken. Not now that she doesn’t have a job or a place to live. Lucy knew this day was coming but kept hoping Gav would change his mind or something would come up but no such luck. Gav said no hard feelings it just wasn’t working out with her working there. Gav added he couldn’t stop bailing Lucy out. Lucy added that she didn’t expect Gav to. Lucy’s confidence turned to stone: no job, no apartment, no money for rent, and the promise she had made to her younger sister Katie that she would have the money for Katie’s glasses at the end of the week.

I liked this book a lot. I liked how Lucy is trying to make it with something she does even if it’s a male dominated field. This is a great read and has a good plot and pace. But I didn’t like how the author referred to the MC as a gang. I like Jake and Lucy together. I also felt that Katie added to this story even if she didn’t have a large part. At time it was a little hard to like Lucy. I did like the action in the book. I also enjoyed watching Lucy grow. There a bit too much misunderstanding and miscommunication in this book. I loved the twists. This story does pull you in and doesn’t let go. I loved the characters and the twists and turns and I recommend.
