Maxwell Craver pretends his entire life to be someone he’s not. It used to be easier to lie to himself and to everyone who cared for him until Jason Lewis comes along and changes everything. For the first time, Maxwell thinks that maybe he can finally be his true self.

Jason Lewis has always been open about his sexuality. When he hires Maxwell to restore his new car, their connection and heat are instant. By agreeing to help him overcome his fears, Jason vows to fix him, even if it means breaking his own heart.




With a cover like that I just had to read this book and y'all know I love a great book cover. It's like eye candy making me want to grab the book and devour the contents. And this was an enjoyable read.

Jason is out and proud. But he's alone in the world, having lost both his loving parents and also inheriting a business from an uncle. He had his hands full and didn't really have time for relationship especially since a previous one ended badly.

That's until he walks into Maxwell's auto repair shop and meeting Maxwell who is the epitome of everything he wants in a man physically. But the closer he gets to Max the more he realises that Max is in denial about his sexuality, and hides himself from the people who love him. Not to mention that Max has a long term girlfriend.

When Max meets Jason the attraction between them is obvious but like everything else Max does, he tires to hide his feelings and carry on pretending to be someone else as he and Jason dance around each other. Bad news about family finally brings them together and also tears them apart.

This book revealed a character trait that I dislike very much. Cowardice. It's one thing if a character is being bullied into a position where they can't stand up for themselves. But when an adult lets imagined fear rule them to a point where it is crippling, then I struggle to empathise.

I hated that Maxwell was such a coward about himself. I hated that he deceived Melanie and his father. There were moments when I wanted to smack him across the face, moments when I wanted to drag him by the hair and make him stand in front of everyone and tell them the truth. Because there just wasn't a plausible reason for his fear. None.

So yes, this book roused strong emotions in me and that's a good thing. Because I cared for the outcome of the situation and I wanted to see the characters get their happy ever after.  This is an easy read. There are described love scenes but they are quite short and quite mild, so should appeal to a wide group of M/M readers.
