Pretending to be a couple may drive them crazy.
Feisty mechanic Betty Smith should have only one thing on her mind—catching the conman who swindled her mother. Not the sexy stranger who kissed her then completely disappeared.
Undercover FBI agent Joe Carter needs to focus on the bad guy who got away, not the gorgeous headstrong brunette who watches too many cop shows and keeps interfering in his case. Unfortunately, catching their prey before he skips town means working together.
But while entering the vintage car rally as a couple seemed like a good idea at the time, faking feelings for each other turns out to be the easiest part. Neither one can allow anything to get in their way, but staying away from each other is impossible. They both know, though, once their plan is complete, so is their time together.
Of the three Under the Hood novellas the best was saved for last. Sweet, fun and with a bit of action, it was an enjoyable read. If you aren't familiar with the series, it centralises around a garage run by 3 ladies, for ladies. And whilst characters do crossover and lives evolve, this could be read as a standalone.
I loved Joe, protective, level-headed and thoughtful, he was a sweetheart. Betsy infuriated me for the early part of the book but as it progressed, her reasonings became clear and she endeared herself totally. She and Joe have an instant chemistry with the same goal in going after after the guy who fleeced her mum out of a small fortune, and their task brings frustration, sexiness whilst keeping you wondering whether they can pull it off.
What I would have liked to have seen was Joe's past elaborated on; I would've liked him to share more with Betty, but nevertheless Racing the Hunter's Moon was a nice easy read with a great epilogue which rounded the series off lovely.
