Photographer Teresa Kelley is on assignment to shoot old ghost towns and desert scenery. What she doesn’t anticipate is that scenery including the delicious Max Draper. The sizzling desert sun isn’t the only thing heating up the abandoned mining town when the hot, muscled and oh-so-sexy mechanic offers to give her a hand. Dusty floorboards and ghost tales aside, Teresa finds herself on the other end of the lens when she and Max are caught in flagrante delicto by an unexpected…assistant.
If you like stories with ghosts, sexy mechanics, and risqué photographers then Good With His Hands is exactly what you’re looking for. This short, yet unmistakably naughty, novella hits the ground running, introducing you to a heroine whose car has broken down at the most inopportune time possible and a hero who’s more than willing to get her motor running.
As with most erotic stories, mucho sex ensues. Teresa and Max are attracted to each other the moment they meet and, considering her vehicle is broken and she has no way to travel until Max fixes the problem, he’s the perfect person to chauffer her around the all-but-abandoned ghost town. As the sparks fly, their romance blooms. The progression is undeniably fast but it works here, as their time is truly limited and each chooses to seize the day. I was curious about how things would end for them and felt pleasantly surprised by the ending.
Good With His Hands is a story that readers with a limited amount of time, who want something sizzling hot, yet sweet, are sure to enjoy. There is plenty of story to engage the attention while the chemistry between Teresa and Max will keep you flipping the pages to learn what happens next.
