The Rookie by Jennifer LaBrecque
Harlequin NASCAR Series Library
From the outside it looks like Maddie Felton is a spoiled little daddy’s girl, from her view it’s that she is being smothered and pampered by her dad and two older brothers. Wanting to join the family business instead of just shopping, they hand her the most unlikely job….working with their NASCAR sponsorship. Not her thing.

Tucker Macray can't believe they sent this spoiled rich girl who knows nothing about racing to work with him. S

Recommends it for: My Friend Colleen(it will be heading your direction) and anyone who likes a very sweet romance.
Recommended to Daisiemae by: Colleen recommended the author.
I have to admit that I love Jennifer LaBrecque's books. (Thanks to Colleen for recommending her to me) She writes about people who genuinely learn to care, and then love one another. This book wasn't the exception.
I will say that the first couple of chapters was kind of hard to get through. Once, there relationship began to blossom, it was an easy read.
There is NO SEX in this book. I would definately put it in the catagory as "sweet." So, this isn't the usual author's standards.

This Harlequin NASCAR romance novel was better than most I've read. I was interested in the characters and even the plot. It was as predictable in the way that many romance novels are, but I wasn't disappointed. Deals with a little more than fast cars and cute boys. I'd recommend it to any of my friends who have take secret pleasure in reading romance novels -- I believe this one could even cross into non-NASCARdom readership.
Not bad...the romance was believable and cute, and I even learned a thing or two about NASCAR, which I have almost no knowledge of. The ending was a bit hokey and could have used some editing, but otherwise, one of the better written Harlequins I've read.
This is one of my favorite books about the Nascar series. I've read a few others and the story was not as good as this one.

First, let me say this is how I show up at my desk every morning to write. Dahling, I couldn’t possibly write a word unless I was wearing 3-inch heels with a Martini at hand. NOT!!! But it’s so different, and face it, infinitely less scarey than the way I usually work, running shorts and t-shirt with a cup of tea nearby, that I had to put this picture up.

I’ve been an avid reader ever since I was g
