Cal Foster has sworn off men. He is never going to date anyone again, ever. But as the saying goes, never say never, because Josh Gibson isn’t just anyone. Jena Wade brings you all the passion you could hope for in her hot, new contemporary romance, Mechanically Inclined.
Mechanically Inclined is the first book I’ve read by Jena Wade and it definitely won’t be my last. I really enjoyed the writing style this author has and her characters were realistically flawed and likeable people.
One of the things I liked about this book was the chemistry between Cal and Josh. Even though Cal is worn down by bad dates and a very hurtful relationship in his past, he can’t help but be interested and like the new teacher in town, Josh. On the other hand, Josh is immediately attracted to Cal and instinctively wants to get to know him and hopefully date. Josh himself is anxious to start a new life in a small town and when he met Cal, he even hoped he might have found his someone special.
If only Cal would give him a chance.
This book had a small town feel about it. The supporting characters also really brought something interesting to the story itself, and I liked the friendship these people had between them. I also enjoyed watching Cal and Josh slowly begin to trust one another, as well as, the obvious friendship and attraction that builds up between them. The author did a great job at showing these main characters personalities, fears, desires and hopes for a future together. Cal and Josh’s story was a intriguing one, in which I really became invested in what was going to happen next.
I liked these two men and really wanted them to work things out together. The journey they took me on was a deeply satisfying one and I really hated to see the story come to an end. I did think the ending was a tad bit abrupt, but this was still a great read for me. Although the book ends on a very positive note, I truly hope Ms. Wade will write more about these characters in the future. I’d love to read more about them and more about the small town she created.
Satisfyingly sexy and an all around well-written read, Mechanically Inclined is a book that is very easy to recommend. If you are looking for a fast-paced read with heroes that live and breathe off of the written page, this book is definitely for you!
