I’m always looking for new romantic suspense and in this case, mixed in with car racing… well I just couldn’t resist. Of course going into with really no expectations, I have to say I really enjoyed this book!Was it suspenseful? A little bit more on the contemporary romance with a suspense twist for me. But it worked with the story.So we have Tracey Bradshaw, or as I like to call her, the woman with nine lives. She’s had a passion for racing since she was a little girl and she became an up-and-coming star at just 19. Sadly that was also the time when she had a very tragic accident which could’ve killed her, instead just damaged her leg severely.After four years she is back and ready to roll when disaster strikes again! This time in a personal and emotional way instead of physically. But the race is still on and she has to push through what is now being considered a series of attacks on her life.Someone wants her out of that race! Now, enter Mac Reynolds. Hunky and determined to help her win that race, but also to keep her safe.Since they are basically the main couple of this book, let me just say that I truly admire the strength Tracey showed through everything that happened to her, but I didn’t really feel a connection to her. And even though Mac is hot and should have all the characteristics I’d want him to have, he wasn’t doing much for me either.Nevertheless, the actual storyline was interesting, their relationship had some sparks in and out of bed, if you can count the many heated arguments they had, and the situations they had to get through.
But who I enjoyed reading about the most was Chelsea and Matthew. The second, and unexpected to me, couple in this book. Matthew is part of Tracey’s pit crew, and he manages to meet Tracey’s twin. Really, a twin, that she didn’t know she had because her mom had given Tracey up for adoption and only kept one child. Chelsea has been searching for her twin for a while and has finally found her! Along with, maybe, true love.
What starts out as a very hot one night stand has the potential for a long lasting relationship. Matthew, with his tall, dark and handsome good looks; sweet charisma and charm. And Chelsea who all around felt more real to me.
I am curious to see what happens in book two, which will be about Mac’s brothers, Quinn.
