Chevi Lane runs with the big boys. Being CEO of a fast-paced, cut-throat boutique auto company, she has to. You might not even tell the difference if not for her hourglass figure, pretty face and wicked tongue. Chevi’s on a fast track to change the world, one auto build at a time. It takes one man to teach her how to slow down.
Jet Maverick is not just ten years her junior, he’s a lifetime behind her in lots of places that matter. Except, Jet knows how to take apart a car and put it back together in a few hours, how to design a genius hybrid engine that could put Mustang on top, and how to fine-tune her body like no one else before. Bonus? He talks like Romeo and looks like an underwear model.
Can Chevi trust the young intern with not just her company’s future, but her heart?
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book is emotional. All the feel are present on the pages and ended up in my heart. I was gutted at times for the issues that Jet and Chevi dealt with. Specifically Chevi.
Chevi is a successful business woman. She runs an auto boutique and is never happier than when she is creating custom automobiles with her two cousins, Bolton and Bentley. Loved those two! While Chevi is a success as far as her bank account goes, she is a mess inside. Chevi is dealing with so many issues and my heart hurt for her. I will say that she is not perfect. Despite the author doing a great job at helping me understand what Chevi was dealing with, she frustrated me at times with her hot and cold behavior towards Jet. There was one particular moment in the book I really did not like her. After that scene, I wasn’t sure I could like her. But in the end everything was moving as it should and I was able to get past my dislike of her.
Jet on the other hand was perfect. He has been through a lot of disappointments in his life leading himself to believe he was unworthy of good things happening to him. That mind-set of Jet’s broke my heart. He was no alpha, but when he put his mind to something, he saw it through. Even if it looked as if he would be unsuccessful, he didn’t give up. So glad he didn’t give up on Chevi because she needed him. He needed her. Jet is intensely possessive and protective. Loved that trait in him.
I won’t give you any spoilers but I will tell you that this book gives us the struggles of alcohol addition and how it is effecting our heroine. While I don’t personally have any experience with this subject, I thought the author did a great job at helping me understand. Mustang Maverick is an intense, emotional and extremely sexy story of two people who truly needed each other to fight the demons in their lives. The end of the book has a couple of incredible epilogues that left me sighing and swooning. I’m so happy I got to read Jet and Chevi’s story. Their HEA was well deserved!
This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
