Review ~ Roadside Service by B.L. Wilde
When fate brings you face-to-face with what your heart desires, how can you ignore it?
Violet Weathers, the world’s top supermodel, is in Omaha, Nebraska for two weeks shooting a campaign for a new skincare line that she’s the fresh new face of.
When her car breaks down on the way to the hotel, she is rescued by a hot mechanic who just might make her stay in Omaha more bearable.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Roadside Service was a very short story that I enjoyed immensely. Violet was such a great female lead. She was strong, yet had insecurities because of her job. Being the top model wasn’t as easy or glamorous as others believe it to be. Being in the limelight puts her in risk for constant criticism from the media. No one truly knows who she is.
Until Blake comes along. He is just a regular guy that fell into his career as a mechanic. The shop he co-owns with his sister just happens to be the place Violet shows up when her rental car breaks down. I love sweet male leads, you know the ones that are so true and gooey. Well, that’s Blake. He was just as sensitive as Violet when it came to worrying if the other was just a booty call and nothing more.
Violet and Blake spent two weeks together while she was working in Omaha and then she was going off to Paris. In this quick read, we do get all the main aspects of a good story. However, I needed just a little more. I truly wanted to see more of Violet and Blake and their lives, but, believe me, I have no complaints with the final product.
I recommend this to anyone that likes short reads, great love stories, a bit of smut, and great leading characters.
