REVIEW: “Rebuild” by Emma Wilson



After a traumatic car accident and subsequent break-up with Dylan, his overly entitled boyfriend, Sam returns to his hometown to recover from his injuries. He rents space in Alex’s garage to work on his car. Alex acts on a long ago crush and offers his aid to Sam once he sees how much help Sam needs. Sam’s decision to rebuild the old Mustang instead of scrapping it might lead to rebuilding his life and finding a love he thought impossible after Dylan’s betrayal.


Well that was a fun little read that was sweet, thoughtful and a great introduction to new to me author, Emma Wilson.

One of the things I love most about reading romance is the “how” and “why” people are drawn to each other and I think those things were done particularly well here.  This story isn’t about a drawn out relationship and the ins and outs of lives within a complicated ARC – it’s simply about how two people fit.

I adored the gentle and unintentional way which Alex soothed Sam.  The subtle actions and reactions between them that show you how two peices/people can fit perfectly together and how what one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.

Match that with great tempo, fun, engaging writing and charming characters and I’m in heaven.

Sam wasn’t the only one that was soothed by Alex and their connection… I was too.

You can be sure that I’ll search for more of Wilson’s work and hopefully they’ll be at least four times longer than this one.
