  • There's nothing better that reading about two people fall all over themselves in efforts to NOT fall for one another. Gail Sattler did a wonderful job developing the characters in this story where you have the rich princess, fall for the lowly commoner and find out he was really a hero all along. I don't want to give away anything, but know it's a great read. No loose ends, no editing issues I noticed, and some great kissing...

  • very good book, finished up the series but would have like to have seen one more book so that each of the guys had his own story but it was tied up nicely.

  • from the back cover:
    With long blond hair and painted red nails, beautiful Georgette Ecklington didn't look like a mechanic. But the latest hire at Bob's and Bart's Auto Repair could recognize a faulty coil in no time and fix it just as fast. Only problem was that Bob Delanio was attracted to his new employee. Luckily, he knew business and pleasure didn't mix. Besides, after meeting her weathy and controlling father, Bob realized he and Georgette came from opposite worlds. It was up to Georgette to she her handsome boss that a downtown man should take a risk on an uptown girl.

    *************************

    One of reasons I enjoy the Love Inspired books is that they showcase solid and wholesome values. In His Uptown Girl, the moral is that people's worth should be judged on the type of person they are on the inside, and not on how much money or flashy positions they have. Although I liked the story very much, it is a bit heavy on the preachiness. I didn't give it a higher rating because I prefer Christian fiction that's more subtle in sharing its message.

    The cliche that money cannot buy happiness certainly holds true in Georgette's life. As the heiress to her family's business empire, she never lacked for material comforts. Yet, she was never permitted by her controlling father to be her own person, to go to college and develop her interests or knowledge, to have any close friendships, to venture outside their social circle, to belong to a church (because God is for weaklings). To cope with feelings of insecurity and loneliness, Georgette developes an interest in rebuilding car engines, a hobby which leads her to apply for a mechanic/bookkeeping job at a local auto shop. This job, and her friendship with her boss Bob, becomes a secret she can only keep from her father for a few months. Once he discovers that she defied him, he issues her an ultimatum: either save the family's reputation she's disgraced and marry a man of his choosing or he will disown her. This is the last straw for Georgette - she refuses to marry a man she doesn't love, or remain a part of a lifestyle that goes against so many of her beliefs, her feelings of self-worth, and her pursuit of inner joy.

    When her father follows through with his threat, Georgette find herself without any money, a home, or anyone to lean on for support. Her boss, Bob, who had become her only good friend, gives her a place to live and teaches her some of the basic household tasks, like cleaning and cooking, that she was never allowed to do for herself before. When their feelings for each other move from platonic towards love, will they be able to reconcile their very different backgrounds and lifestyles, and the scorn of her father, to build a solid relationship with each other??

  • I must admit I enjoyed the first half more, but the whole book was interesting. I felt so bad for the family George had. Nothing was ever resolved with them, but of course that's the way things sometimes go in real life.

    What about Bob? I liked Bob...really liked Bob! He was so sweet, from the moment he hired George until the very last page. I liked how he took care of George, even if he couldn't keep his proper distance. And the kisses were so...GREAT! There were two kissing scenes, and they were both pretty hot.

    Not that I know what having money is like, I don't; but I could not imagine what George went through. First she had everything, then she lost it all to her selfish father! She learned so much, and now she has a lifetime to teach her kids what it really means to be rich.

  • I loved this book. It was the second book I read by this author, and I was amazed at how well she could create characters so close to me in attitudes and likes. I love working on cars, and I have experienced the prejudice that comes with that as a female. I was fascinated at the author's ability to create a believable character within this premise. Yeah, if you are a true mechanic, you may find a few flaws in some of the repairs. Still, most of the information was impressively accurate. I picked up this series thinking it was going to be cheesy, but I found some books I could really sink my teeth into.

  • This was sweet and quick read about two people with very different backgrounds. Georgette is the typical rich hairess who has it all and still wants more. Bob is the great guy with the perfect family who feels like George won't be able to love him. Although the book was very sweet I found it rather predictable. Still it had a sweet ending and if you have read the first book then you may want to read this one because it picks up about Adrain and Celeste.

  • Looks aren't everything. A rich, beautiful woman becomes a small town mechanic in this romance novel. She's totally helpless, which goes against most of what we know about rich people: they have money because they can do things (or sell things) better than others. However, she is a decent accountant and mechanic and she slowly falls for her employer, Bob. There's some witty dialogue between Bob and Georgette concerning food and fixing up a home. The moral of the story is don't judge by appearances.
