Fast forward never took so long . . .
Kit Runyon isn’t looking for a man to keep—she’s happy with the occasional one-night stand and no strings. Making sure her family’s electronics repair shop is profitable enough to support three generations is her main focus. But when Brian Hendricks walks into the store, one look, one word, and she knows he’s not wired like any man she’s ever met before . . .
Brian’s attracted to Kit’s strength and no-nonsense attitude, but he’s tired of the one-and-done dating scene. He’s ready to settle down with the right woman, even if that means he’ll have to play things slow and stay out of her bed to show her there’s more to love than just mind-blowing sex. But at this rate he’s liable to short all the circuits . . .

Compelling and Romantic!
Well, this is definitely another hit for M.Q. Barber! What a fantastic book! I loved the back and forth between Brian and Katherine, and the intense romance and desire simmering just under the surface. It was also great to check back in on Rob and Nora from the previous book, Her Shirtless Gentleman. These characters were absolutely phenomenal, so sincere and raw and real. They really draw you into the story, and make you never want to stop reading. I was hooked right from the start, and I loved every word of this book. The journey the two main characters take together is nothing short of incredible. Such a unique love story! I was sad to see it end, but was overjoyed at the path this book had taken. The book itself has everything you could possibly want. It's enchanting and provocative and compelling and romantic and intriguing and sexy and positively riveting. I would highly recommend this book, and now impatiently await M.Q. Barber's next release.

Second book in series!
An Accidental Gentleman by M.Q. Barber is the second book in the Gentleman series. Kit Runyon loves to fix mechanical objects. She is on her way home when the truck blows a tire just missing the man in the car behind her. Brian (the man behind her) pulls over to assist her with changing the tire. Brian is instantly attracted to Kit (has a physical response to her beauty). Brian asks Kit out on a date, but Kit states she does not date. She is only interested in one thing and it is not dinner. Brian feels that Kit is the woman that will finally make him want to settle down and sets out to woo her. He wants her to change her mind about dating. Can Brian make Kit change her mind? Is there a happily ever after in their future? You will have to read An Accidental Gentleman to find out?
I found An Accidental Gentleman reminded me of a basic romance novel with a prolific amount of foul language (it was extremely offensive and did nothing to enhance the story) and sex scenes thrown in. This book is very different from her Neighborly Affection series (the first couple of books in the series which I enjoyed). Kit is a mechanic and there are many (too many) references to mechanical workings (it is off putting). I get how it relates to sex, but that does not mean I like it. I never got into this novel. Normally when I read a book, I am drawn into that world. But not with An Accidental Gentleman. I just expected more from this author. I give An Accidental Gentleman 3 out of 5 stars. It is the second book in the series, but it can be read alone. It was an okay book, but just not for me.
