Turn Up the Heat (Pine Mountain, #1)  "It's not you."

There are only so many times a girl can hear those words before she believes that it is, in fact, very much her. Unexpectedly jilted by her locally famous boyfriend and haunted by a boss who makes Attila the Hun look like a lap dog, Bellamy Blake does what any self-respecting girl in her shoes would do. She rounds up her two best girlfriends and makes plans to get the hell out of Dodge.

But Bellamy's escape plan takes a nose dive on the side of rural route 164 when her transmission self-destructs, leaving her in the middle of a cell phone dead zone with nothing but her wits. Oh, and Shane Griffin, the hottest mechanic who's ever checked under her hood.

Yet this small-town man isn't all he seems. Can Shane and Bellamy prove that sometimes the most unlikely ingredients make the most deliciously sexy mix?

     What a cute confusing story this was but in a good way.  You see Bellamy Blake gets dumped by her newscaster boyfriend Derek with the line, “It’s not you.  It’s me.”  If she never hears those words again “It’s not you” she’ll be happy because it seems every guy she’s dated has said them so now she is starting to believe it is her. 
     As if being dumped is not enough bosszilla from hell keeps piling on more work at the bank.  So she decides to take some extra days to get out of town and get away from all the calls about Derek moving out of town or them thinking that they are getting married and moving together.
So, when she sees an ad for Pine Mountain Resort she talks Holly and Jenna her BFF’s into going with her for the weekend or an extended weekend.  On her way there her car breaks down.
     Since she is in the middle of nowhere she has no cell phone reception and has to walk about a mile to a garage to get help where she runs into the local mechanic Shane Griffen.  She was on a gust of cold to the bone wind from a storm getting ready to blow through.  Shane sizes her up to be a rich, spoiled, demanding, city girl by her expansive clothes haircut and perfume.  She does sound kind of curt even Bellamy notices it and apologizes but it was from the cold and the long walk.
     Right away Shane is rude, condescending, and unfriendly.  Come see how these two rub each other friendly. J

     Shane has secrets that he keeps so it made me so want to find out what they were but the chemistry and the bantering kept me reading. 5 stars.  Provided by netgalley.com  Find us on: www.1rad-readerreviews.com
