Review: Under the Hood by Sally Clements

This is my review for Under the Hood by Sally Clements; I was given an advanced reader copy to review by Net Galley.


When sexy mechanic Alice Starr mistakenly believes attorney Mark Jameson needs her help, he discovers he likes being rescued for a change. Smitten by her confidence, he hides his expertise so he has an excuse to see her again.
Starting their new all-female garage, Under the Hood, is keeping Alice and her friends busy. She doesn't have time for a man. But with one kiss, she and Mark have advanced into water so deep she's in danger of drowning. So why hasn't he called?
Mark wants to tell Alice the truth so they can pursue a relationship. But he's got even bigger problems at his office when his bitter aunt threatens Alice’s livelihood. He needs a plan, fast, or else Under the Hood and his chances with Alice could both be ruined.


This was a cute and sweet little Novella by Sally Clements, it is only around 100 pages at took me about 40 minutes to read. Perfect for a lunch break or on the bus.

I loved the role reversal aspect of this book, the female lead Alice is a Mechanic who helps the male lead Mark to fix his car when she mistakenly believes he knows nothing about cars.

The characters were well developed despite the length of the book and the story was lighthearted and entertaining.

I always enjoy a book where the female lead is in a profession not traditionally meant for women so this added a further special-ness to this book.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a lighthearted short read this book is also suitable for anyone who isn't a fan of lots of sex scenes as there weren't any lol!

My overall score for this book is:

3.5 out of 5 stars.
