Big Brawny Mechanic by Cassi Hart KINDLE


Tropes: Forbidden Romance, Best Friend’s Dad, Virgin Heroine, Secret Crush, Age Gap, Instalove

Tags: Daddy Kink, Dirty Talk, Praise Kink, Short Romance Read



I liked this story. It was short, only about 60 pages, but it was well-written, and the characters were interesting. I think, had it been longer, more depth to the characterization of the two would have been needed and a bit more backstory for their attraction as well, but for what the author wrote here, it was pretty good.

The forbidden angle to the romance was handled well, as was the secret crush and virgin heroine tropes. I do think the daddy kink was a bit much for this particular short read, as it wasn’t really needed or it needed more of a build up than what it got, but overall, the story was good, and I enjoyed reading it.

I don’t recall if I’ve read this author’s work before, but since I enjoyed this story, I plan to continue with the series and then maybe dig into the author’s backlist to see what else they have on offer.


RATING: 4 out of 4 stars

All my life I’ve come to expect lemons.

Lemon foster parents, lemon schools, lemon relationships, and now the car I spent my life savings on is indeed a lemon.

I am stranded on the side of the road when my best friend sends someone to save me. He is big, rough, tattooed, and everything I have ever wanted in a man.

Our attraction is instantaneous and I know he’s the only man I could ever give my V-Card to.

It looks like my luck is finally changing.

The only problem is that our love is forbidden… because Jack Knight is my best friend's Dad.


Big Brawny Mechanic is a sweet and steamy instalove story starring a hunky mechanic and a beautiful college student who fall for one another despite being off-limits.
