Meet the Author:
Katy Evans grew up with books and book-boyfriends until she found a real sexy boyfriend to love. They married and are now hard at work on their own happily ever after. Katy loves her family and friends, and she also loves reading, walking, baking, and being consumed by her characters until she reaches “The End.” Which is, hopefully, only the beginning…
Genre: Contemporary Romance
A bad boy with something to prove.
A woman with a mission.
The race of their lives.
The love of a lifetime.
I don’t think his parents expected him to live up to his name—Racer Tate—but once he felt the adrenaline rush behind the wheel, he was addicted.
He’s the fastest, fiercest driver around.
Scouting new talent brings me to his doorstep…
but his smile sends me to my knees.
The sexy, mysterious Racer Tate is not the kind of man a girl like me falls for. He’s secretive, reckless, elusive. But his proximity pushes me beyond reason, and his kiss….
This is our last chance to win, and he is our only hope. I’m supposed to watch him—make sure he doesn’t get into trouble. But it’s an impossible task. And now the one in heart wrenching, toe-curling, soul-crushing trouble is me. Because when your heart belongs to someone, their truths become your own, and their secrets become your salvation…or your curse.
He says he wants me. He says I’m the One. But he also thinks he’ll break my heart, one piece at a time until it’s gone.
“Can you love someone so hard that every part of your being feels it?”
I knew it would be amazing. I could feel it in my bones. Remy captured my heart years ago, how could his son not do the same? Racer was everything I expected and wanted. In true Katy Evans form, we have a male lead who is larger than life and outshines the brightest star, while also being vulnerable and flawed. That’s what I love most about her books.
Here’s the breakdown:
Lana literally runs into Racer while visiting St Pete, FL. She’s on the hunt for a Formula 1 driver who can help her family climb their way back into the running for a championship. Little does she know, she just hit the one guy who can live up to the challenge. When Racer sees Lana for the first time he’s blown away. Needless to say, sparks fly on and off the track.
What I loved:
Racer’s character is my favorite part of the book. As I stated above, this is where Katy Evans excels. I can’t help falling in love with her male lead. The descriptions, dialogue, and the mannerisms are always so perfectly rendered. I’m immediately pulled in and sucked under their spell. That certainly holds true for Racer. He has a single-minded focus once he meets Lana. That’s to make her HIS, so he goes after what he wants with every fiber of his being. I swooned so hard. His dirty talk game is on point ladies!
The emotional kick from his situation and the relationship he maintains with Remy because of it had me in tears. Oh my goodness, it was all the things! I’m getting misty-eyed just thinking about it!
I’ll keep this brief and sum up here. I really enjoyed the story. I highly recommend it to fans of the series. This book can be read as a standalone, but I highly suggest you read the entire series. It’s amazing!
