Description:

Sixteen-year-old, trainee car mechanic and motorcycle rider, Eve McGinty, isn't one to take things lying down (males please note!), but she never expected to have to step in to save the life of that annoying idiot, Adam Quinn. And she only did it because she's reserving the right to kill him herself!

Eve McGinty and her flamboyant next door neighbour, Adam Quinn, have been bitter rivals for as long as they can remember, but when Eve's younger brother, Jamie, is invited to join the rock band that the irrepressible Quinn and his friends have formed, she manages to be grudgingly pleased on his behalf. Unfortunately, the members of the band have made some dubious decisions in their eagerness to get a recording deal and when things turn nasty with the local psychopathic night club bouncers and drug dealers, Eve feels she has no option but to step in to prevent her little brother from being dragged down with the rest of the boys.

And as the consequences spiral out of control, Eve is forced to spend a lot more time with the irritating Quinn than she ever really wanted to…

Contemporary, action-packed, coming-of-age romance with a strong female lead and a wanna-be alpha male. A light-hearted, fast-paced story of how one kickass teen deals with misogyny in and out of the workplace as she tries to get ahead in a traditionally male job.
