Benaiah Day has no skills when it comes to repairing cars. A mishap with his ’66 Jaguar has him turning to mechanic Jess Leonard for help. Jess’ skills allow him to keep his business afloat. The mutual attraction with Ben was unexpected. The full time dad has little time to make a love connection, but something about Ben makes Jess believe he has found a keeper.

Driven To Distraction takes us to a small town where we encounter Ben and Jess. The men don’t have to wonder if they are sexually compatible. That is more than evident every time they are within a foot of one another. But their different backgrounds, occupations and race could have become factors in putting a damper on their budding relationship. Anah Crow & Dianne Fox not only added elements in the story around these issues but were able to find resolution to them before they caused the couple too much heartache.

I would have enjoyed watching Ben interact with Jess’ children. I believe that one dynamic would have helped me decide if the relationship was merely just a happy-for-right-now verses a happily-ever-after story. Overall, I found the story a wonderful read. The characters have great chemistry, which made Driven To Distraction flow effortlessly. It’s a wonderful addition to the Working Stiffs series.
