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.
Racer Tate stole my heart!! Even if you haven’t read his parents’ love story, you will love Racer and Lana’s story. New adult romance is a hit or miss genre for me, but Racer is certainly a hit!
Lana’s mother took off a few years ago, her father is dying of cancer, and their family business, HW Racing is floundering. Lana has always been the sunshine of her family, trying to keep her father’s dreams alive and her brothers spirits up. So, she is determined to find a driver for their F1 car. What she finds, however, is the best street racer in the world. Can Racer Tate turn into a winning F1 driver?
Racer is as complex as his father. Diagnosed with Bipolar 1 disorder like his father, Racer is a risk taker. He is aware of his medical condition and like his father before him, does a lot to manage it. He exercises frequently, eats well, avoids alcohol, and sticks to his regime. However, its always the elephant in the room for him. He is afraid that Lana won’t be able to handle his diagnosis. Regardless, he knows immediately, Lana is the girl he will marry. He finally understands what his parents have is real and not just a lucky event. Now he has to convince Lana he is a good bet. She doesn’t want to get involved with the driver for their team. Plus, her brothers are a bit over protective. None of this deters Racer, and its super hot!
Lana has her own issues. Her first love, best friend David, died when they were teenagers. She has never quite recovered and is terrified to love anyone because they always leave. Her mom abandoned them, David died, her father is dying. She worries that getting involved with Racer will end in tragedy. Plus, she sees him as an employee of her family’s company and therefore off limits.
These two burn slow but so hot. The sexual tension is off the charts and they fight it for a while (well, Lana does). Their desire for each other will ignite your kindle so be prepared. Add in the danger of F1 racing, the excitement of Racer winning races, and you have an amazing story that will keep you glued to your book!
