{Review} Mustang Sassy by Daire St. Denis

Mustang Sassy by Daire St. Denis

Publication Date: 24 February 2014
Genre: New Adult Romance
Page Count: 250


When Sass Hogan catches her boyfriend slow-dancing and doing the tongue-tango with Tori Double-D-Cup Hunter, she pays him back the only way she knows how—by taking a tire iron to his beloved ’67 Mustang Fastback. There’s only one problem. She’s destroyed the wrong car.

Jordan Michaels wants his car fixed, now, and he wants Sass’s auto body shop to do it.  But the handsome blond has a secret−he’s really Jordan Carlyle of Carlyle’s Classics, Hogan’s biggest competitor, and he’s determined to prove himself to his family. 

As Sass and Jordan get to know each other, the depth of the attraction has them falling in love. But a relationship based on lies will only leave them primed for the worst wreck of their lives.

RATING: 4 out of 5 Stars

What I Felt
Mustang Sassy is a book about deceit, misunderstandings, revelation and reconciliation. I would say it's an emotional read as we follow Sass and Jordan's roller-coaster journey through tough times. 

What caught my attention about this book was its title. Mustang Sassy just has a nice ring to it and then when I read the blurb, I thought it would be an interesting read with all that wrecking the wrong car thing after witnessing her boyfriend with another girl and how to get out of the sticky situation. The beginning chapter focuses on Sass and her messed up thoughts the moment she saw her boyfriend with another girl and she just lost it. This girl needs some anger management problem! She only realized that she got the wrong car back at the workshop and that the car she smashed belonged to this hot guy Jordan Michael. Despite knowing that fact, Sassy wasn't able to confess about her wrong doings and that dragged on, followed by some misunderstandings. What's the deceit about? You'll have to find out by reading the book. 

I couldn't really relate to Sass at the start of the book with all her irrational thoughts and that one major anger outburst but it was still amusing to read about her. As the story progresses, I slowly get to know more about her and understand what made her this way. The deceit and misunderstandings left me frustrated and annoyed at times but it resolved pretty well in the end with a twist that slapped the truth across both characters' faces. Love how Sass learnt the truth about her past and how it propelled her forward and how sweet Jordan was. Overall still an enjoyable read! The chemistry between Sass and Jordan is definitely sizzling!

    1. Thanks! Hope you'll get it if you are interested. It's $0.99 now on Amazon. :)

  2. This sounds like a fun read. I can relate to that anger outburst because I'd be pretty pissed if I found my husband/BF kissing someone else, too! I wouldn't like the deception or lack of communication that seems to be happening, though. Great review, Michelle! :)

    1. Hi Rachel, the anger outburst is understandable but to wreck a cool car... Well, let's just hope no one experience unpleasant stuff like what Sass experienced! :) Thanks for stopping by!
