If only she weren't so gorgeous. So funny. So eager to please. She’s a disaster behind the wheel, but she drives me wild without even trying--at work, at home, in the back of my truck . . . I can’t get enough of the way she makes me feel.
But I know better than to think it can last. She wants a fairy tale, and I’m no prince.
So when it comes time for her to leave, there’s nothing I can do but let her go.
No matter how much it hurts to say goodbye.
*Get ready for a brand new, sweet and sexy small town series!

My Rating: 4.5 Stars
Tropes: Small Town | Contemporary Romance
Drive Me Wild is the first book in the Bellamy Creek series by Melanie Harlow and I have to say, it’s a fantastic start! Having loved her Cloverleigh Farms series I knew I was in for a treat when I realized she was writing another small-town romance series of interconnected standalones (my FAVORITE). In this one, readers will meet Blair and Griffin, two unlikely people who, despite major life differences, find a love they never expected. But will their love be able to last knowing how different the two are?
Griffin... He’s a bit of a grump and extremely stubborn, but I loved watching him slowly come to terms with his past and how to rectify his future. He’s hardheaded for sure, and there were MANY times I wanted to shake some sense into him, but I fell hard for him regardless. I think the cover of the book depicts him perfectly and watching him in my head was a delight!
Blair is a one of a kind, sassy woman. She’s running from her past (being the belle of the ball to a woman on her own without the “finer things in life” she’s been accustomed to), and straight into the arms of a grumpy mechanic. She’s a talker, excitable, and unique in the best of ways and I loved watching her turn her life into something she always dreamed. Sure, getting the grumpy mechanic to “see her” was a big undertaking, but she lays her heart on her sleeve and I applauded her for her smarts and fierceness.
Melanie Harlow knows how to write characters in an endearing way and that was the same with this story. I love her style, her small-town romances, and the way she effortlessly brings these characters to life! I highly recommend this one to fellow romance readers. I can’t wait for Cheyanne’s story next- I know it’s going to be a GOOD ONE!
READ AN EXCERPT
Switching off the lights, I followed her out onto the sidewalk, locking the door behind us. “I need a quick shower and change of clothes. Want to come up with me?”
I was following her up the stairs to my apartment, looking at her ass and wondering if she had sexual rules and how long it would take me to break them, when I realized she was still talking.
Shit, had she just asked me a question?
At the top of the stairs, she turned around and faced me. “So? Are you going to?”
I stood close. Ridiculously close. So close I could smell her—vanilla and lemon—and she could probably smell me—sweat and motor oil.
“Am I going to what?”I asked, looking at her lips.
She licked them. “Listen to me.”
“Oh. Yeah. I am.” But at that moment, I was pretty sure I was going to do something else to her too.
Suddenly she stepped back. “Good,”she said, her cheeks flushed pink. “On second thought, I think I’ll wait outside. I’m a little warm, and there’s a nice breeze.”
“Okay. I’ll be out in a few minutes.”
Nodding, she turned and descended the stairs so slowly, I wondered if she was dizzy. I watched her hand sliding along the wooden rail, thinking dirty thoughts.
On the landing, she pushed the door open and disappeared from view, but I still couldn’t breathe right.
What would she have done if I’d put my mouth on hers like I’d wanted to just now? Would she have kissed me back? Would she have welcomed my hands on her skin? Or would she have kneed me in the balls and told me to keep my filthy fingers to myself?
She wasn’t like any other girl I’d ever met, which was both the problem and the allure. I didn’t know how to read her.
But damn, I wanted her something fierce.
I took an ice cold shower, hoping it would help.
