Fasten your seatbelt…

Marketing Program Manager, Vanessa Rodriquez, is driven to succeed and keeps the finish line in sight at all times…until one unexpected pit stop at her best friend’s wedding sends her skidding off course. Sleeping with Alex McIntyre wasn't supposed to make her feel this way—scattered, unfocused, and in need of another sexual tune-up. If only he didn’t make her feel so alive.

Yield to oncoming desire…

Alex can’t resist the beautiful Vanessa any more than he can resist his need for speed as an amateur race car driver. Even though she claims to hate him, she keeps coming back for lap after lap in his bed. When he ends up moving in next door to her, their sexual chemistry turns to deep desire. Ready to go full throttle, he convinces her to be his grid girl on—and off—the track. Van, however, puts on the brakes.

Race against love…

If Van can just course correct, it’ll be smooth sailing toward her goals. Or will it? Alex is smart, sexy, and way too much of a distraction, but maybe she needs to shake up her world and do the one thing she swore she’d never do…follow her heart. Will she risk it all to cross the finish line? Or will she and Alex crash and burn before they have a chance at love?

What a great read – this one starts out hot and keeps sizzling the whole way through. I love these enemies to lovers/opposites attract stories and all the tension and sparks that come as part of the package. And I love it even more when they realize that maybe they aren't as opposite as they thought and that underneath the persona they have tagged each other with may just be someone that had all the qualities that they each needed to fall in love with.

Van was a riot. She is so focused on her career and walking the straight and narrow, and after meeting her father it’s easy to see why she is that way. She certainly knows how to have fun, but, in Vanessa’s own words she’s “prickly” and really doesn't like people, which has left her with few friends, and only one really close friend, Becca. I just loved her personality and she had me cracking up with the things that would come out of her mouth.
Damn her tongue. She really shouldn't be allowed out without a mouth chaperone.
There was so much more to Alex than he shows to the world. Due to events from his past, he has always tried to be the person everyone needs him to be. And love – Alex doesn't believe in love, not when he’s seen his parents divorce and then remarry…multiple times. Short term is his specialty, but Vanessa has him thinking otherwise. Of course after Vanessa sneaks out on him after a hot night together, he knows trying to convince Vanessa to even give him the time of day is not going to be easy, and then convincing her to give him a chance will take all he has.

Alex and Van together were H-O-T! As I said before, this story starts of hot and with the tension between the two and then heat when they give in, there is hardly a page that doesn't sizzle! And I loved when Van finds out Alex’s big secret – that he’s an amateur race car drive – her libido certainly goes into overdrive!
Just thinking about him in the suit sent a spear of need through her body. She wasn't dumb enough to have a bad-boy thing, but she did like a little edge. It was bad enough she knew just how talented he was in bed. Now apparently, the Boy Scout had some swagger. She was doomed.
This was a fun read that had a nice mix of tension, heat, sweet, and angst. Both Vanessa and Alex have some issues they need to deal with, and it was great watching them both take steps to start living the lives they want, rather than the lives that others expect. I loved Becca and Liam and their friendship to both Vanessa and Alex. I can’t wait to go back and read their story to find out how they got together. This one is a definite add to anyone’s TBR list!

I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.
