Review: Tow Trucks & New Year's Kisses by Lila Leigh Hunter

A Jag with out-of-state plates is the last car Scott DeLaney expected to find when answering a tow call as a favor to his drunken godson. But, the tall man in the fedora seems like a nice reward until Scott finds out the stranger's destination. Yes, he'd take care of the brooding man, but he has a selfish reason for it.

Finding himself in a ditch after dodging a deer is the least of Patrick Samuels's problems when his rescuer arrives, wearing a tuxedo and driving a hot pink flatbed. Perhaps his older brother’s scheme will benefit Patrick after all.

Who knew that a New Year’s kiss is far more efficient than any boardroom strategy to seal a deal?

I did it again! I saw a gorgeous cover and I went right on in without thinking twice. I mean really, do you see all that lumbersexual hotness up there? I just couldn't help myself.

This short New Year's story wasn't totally bad, but it wasn't particularly good either. It was OK.

Scott was enjoying a New Year's Eve party with his ex-wife, his daughter and her boyfriend, when the boyfriend (who has special plans for his girlfriend) gets called to work. Scott took the call for a tow so his daughter could have her special night.

I really liked Scott. I thought he was a great dad, an awesome ex-husband, and hot as hell. He had a good sense of humor and was just an all-around happy guy. 

Patrick, the guy who needed the tow, had much to be desired in the personality department. When Scott arrived to help the guy out, Patrick was just rude and so unlikable to me. I can usually grow to like a character who has a turn-around, but there wasn't enough page time for me to forgive Patrick.

I didn't really understand the decisions they made and why they moved so fast. I felt what they had was more insta-lust, which I could buy into. Things were left on "we'll see what happens" ground, but decisions were made that felt more solid than that. It was a weird combo and I wasn't feeling it.

This one fell short for me. But that cover... *bites lip* damn.
