A person walking by would step around that flower to avoid crushing it. Jonah pulls up to Raven's garage expecting to find a mechanic to help him restore his '61 Impala. He sees Raven "Ray" walk out and he's a goner. The instant attraction is there for both of them and they are tongue-tied and gobsmacked. Jonah invites her to do the work at his house and she agrees. Jonah finds himself thinking and doing things with Raven that are unprecedented.
Inviting her to his house? Thinking about her all the time? Fantasizing about her…. Check, Check. The two of them spend lots of time together working on his car and it's so comfortable and natural right off the bat. The secondary characters are pretty great as well. Jonah's fighter friend Blake is hilarious. He's a unashamed horndog and had me cracking up. He's actually a sweetheart underneath all that and becomes just as protective of Raven as Jonas.
There's one part between Jonas and his mom that killed me…. Things are getting serious between us, and I thought you should know. Nope, still connected. I guess I thought. I always thought you liked girls. I cough to clear my voice. Of course, I like girls. Wait, Mom, Raven is a girl!
Shit, you thought I was telling you I was dating a guy? Fuck me. Jonas and Raven connect pretty quickly but they have one huge, massive problem hovering over their heads. Her 21st birthday. Once they become aware of her father's plans for her, Jonah makes a deal with the devil for her freedom. Throw the championship fight and he won't force her into working for him.
But things don't exactly go as planned. These two are amazing together, the sex between them is off the charts and I was totally in love with their story from page one to end.

Horror was quickly replaced with The transgressions of our mothers may haunt us When the book begins we are transported 21 years into the past, we learn of the transgressions a mother makes the day her daughter is born. And the price the child must pay once she reaches legal age. Birthed with the innocence of a babe yet bred to leave her virtue behind for a life her mother knows well.
Raven 20 years later Raven has been estranged from her mother for over 2 years and from her father her whole life. She works as a mechanic and resides above the shop. Guy was her high school shop teacher he taught her about cars and saw she had talent.
He is now her boss and is the only other person she is close to besides her best friend Eve. He is currently undefeated and known for being a "Ladies Man" 'I do not hit the same honey pot twice.
When they meet she's instantly starstruck and slowly gathers herself. She takes the job and goes fan-girl crazy, on the inside of course! What have I gotten myself into? It's her beauty, a beauty that drys out his mouth Raising up a thirst for her in a way he realizes can only be quenched by tasting what she has to offer. Friendship takes root fast between these two as does a relationship. Making the decision to leave the bachelor style life behind was not a hard choice for Jonah. His feelings for Raven mad that one of the easiest choices he ever had to make.
My life will never be the same. What she does not know is that he has already made up his mine about her. And that includes everything that makes you who you are. He was my undertaker. Or Predator Love life and automobiles; that was Raven's life until her phone rings and changes everything.
Her father wants to meet with her and because of the little girl inside who holds out on hope she accepts the invitation. When daddy puts on his pimp hat and drops the bomb that Raven will be his property on her 21st birthday she's utterly devastated. That little slice of hope is now crushed into tiny pieces of sorrow. Can their love survive this? I despise men and from now on will only date women.
I loved it actually. So why 3 stars?
