Dex and Jamie had a love hate relationship that just kept going and going and going. They acted like twelve year olds and their constant bickering got old and felt repetitive. Under normal circumstances Dex would have fired Jamie after her first smarta$$ comment since he was the boss and she was technically on a trial period. Additionally, Jamie constantly talks about wanting to be taken seriously as a female mechanic, yet she wears booty shorts, yoga pants and on one occasion a skirt to work, which she admits to herself she did to get Dex’s attention. She then gets annoyed at Dex for checking her out. Personally I’ve never been to a garage where the mechanics wore shorts or yoga pants - male or female. On top of all this, Jamie complains to anyone who will listen about how horribly Dex treats her. However, she was the main instigator of their arguments and she always made a negative comment no matter what Dex did or said. She had a huge chip on her shoulder when they met being a woman mechanic in a man’s world, and Jamie continued to take out her frustration on Dex.
Honestly, I just felt sorry for Dex. In addition to being nagged and lectured from Jamie, his Aunt Greta, his niece Charley and his sister Roxy, who by the way takes annoying and juvenile to a whole new level, join in and take shots at him too. Poor Dex, the guy didn’t stand a chance. I realize brothers and sisters oftentimes bicker, but Roxy was crude and bratty to Dex every single time they were in a scene together. It was overkill and I’m not sure who was worse, Roxy or Jamie.
Surprisingly, I began to enjoy the story a little more once Dex and Jamie finally acted on their attraction. It made their constant bickering easier to tolerate. In the end, this just wasn’t a favorite of mine and I felt it took me forever to read it. But as with all books, what I may not like, another reader may love.
Jamie is a down on her luck mechanic, and ends up applying for a job at her families old shop. When she first meets Dex she and him get along like oil and water. He doesn't believe woman can hack it in the shop, and she is all for proving him wrong. When they make a deal for three weeks of a trial basis, everything goes downhill between the two of them These two push each others buttons like no other and their arguments over every single thing are quite hilarious. Jamie has her mind set to prove her wrong, and Dex slowly starts to see she's amazing at what she does, but refuses to let her know it, as he doesn't want her to win.
Throw in some absolutely hilarious and meddling family members and friends, and these two have no chance of getting away from one another. From Greta, Roxy, and Charley they all give these characters the guilt trips, and throw them together over and over again. I adored watching Jamie and Dex outside of the shop, and how they seemed to truly get along, but as soon as they would step back into work, all bets were off again. Watching them bicker back and forth held so much angst that you knew when they finally gave in, it was going to be HOT and trust me it was.
Miss Mechanic was a light and funny read full of angst and laughs. It is the perfect read if you're looking for something to get lost in and to just forget the world around you for awhile. Emma Hart has a way of writing a story that makes you fall in love with the characters and want to love and hate them all at the same time. There were times in this book that I truly wanted to strangle both of them, but everything worked out in the end! I highly suggest picking up Miss Mechanic today, it's on you will fall in love with, trust me!
