Quinn has spent her whole life working in her dad's garage, leaving her more comfortable with a carburetor than a curling iron. Her world is turned upside down when her beloved garage is bought by none other than world famous, sexy as sin, custom car builder, Tazen Watts. He's the one man she can't stand...even though he makes her hotter than a high performance engine in top gear.

Tazen has no use for Quinn, at least not professionally, and he's making sure she knows it. But there's a spark between them that she's finding hard to ignore. She's determined to prove her talent is as impressive as her sassy mouth. When she finds out Tazen is hiding a secret that could bring down his career and everyone involved in it, she wonders: is falling for him is going to be work the risk?

**Hard To Break is a full-length standalone romance with a HEA**

Tazen and Quinn… what can I say, these two were a feisty pair and I enjoyed every moment of reading Hard to Break! Quinn runs her father’s garage since he’s unable to work. When one of her idols, Tazen Watts walks in, she is star struck… until he opens his mouth, gets all flirty and insults her shop. The constant banter between these two was amusing, but the sexual tension between them was intense!

Quinn is a typical tomboy; raised by her father and has spent countless days at the shop with her father. I loved how she didn’t hold back and wouldn’t allow Tazen to get away with taking everything that she loved so easily. She would come to the shop, watch the work and push Tazen’s buttons! Her home life wasn’t easy though, and she was lucky to have her friends from the shop for support.

Tazen was famous, since he runs a huge shop that has its own show on tv. He’s overly confident, cheeky and has a sexy body every girl wants.  I could see that he was attracted to Quinn early on; she’s different from the normal girls that he dates and she shows real passion for her work, even though he didn’t allow her to do so immediately. But he’s not just what he appears to be, he has a past and it comes back to haunt him.

It was sweet to see that Tazen and Quinn had a common passion and interest when it came to cars. Quinn looked at them as a thing of beauty, not just an object, especially Tazen’s cars. Tazen and Quinn’s journey had a few bumps in the road, but I enjoyed the way it all came together. Their lives may seem so different, but they have more in common than either of them realise.

I’m a fan of Bella Jewel’s writing and the Alpha's Heart series has been fun for me. I love how she’s writing about women who have jobs that are usually for men. The characters are passionate about their work and are strong, independent people with kind hearts. I am looking forward to Delaney and Jax’s book, due in December!

I have a couple of quotes today, one showing how feisty Quinn is and the other where Tazen is sweet!

“What I’ve got, buddy,” I spit, stepping closer, “is a whole lot more than you could even begin to imagine.”
I can’t see his eyes behind those shades, but I know, I just know, they’re running over my body because a slow, sexy smile spreads across his lips and he mutters, “Fuck yeah, you do.”

Tazen grins. “That’s my girl!”
I blush. “Well, I was a tomboy.”
He smirks. “Baby, you still are.”
“Is that a bad thing?”
His eyes flash with something more than lust. “No, it’s a fucking amazing thing.”
