Flying Gold (American Heavy Metal) by Vanessa North
As the proprietor of her late father’s classic car repair shop, Tiffiani Ellis knows how to hold her own in a world where women in charge are a rarity. She may be struggling to keep the business afloat but she certainly won’t give anybody the satisfaction of seeing her family’s beloved legacy fail under her management. But when an old flame reappears, the hard exterior that Tiffani has cultivated will have to soften before she can have a second chance at love.
