I wasn't that keen on reading this book. I am not into sportspeople as a rule, particularly race-car drivers (Sorry, they do nothing for me!). I mainly read this because it's part of the Notorious Wolfes series and I didn't want to read the series out of order.

I ended up liking it more than I thought. Alex had more depth than I expected, and I really liked Libby. Alex as a race-car driver is a metaphor for trying to outrun the pain in his past. Eventually he comes to realize that he has to slow

It brings me absolutely no joy to say I hated this book. I can't think of any book I wanted to love more than this book. More than anything, I wanted this to be a heartfelt story with a positive portrayal of disability so I could write a glowing review to counteract the ignorant, hateful and all around offensive reviews it received from thoughtless readers.

Unfortunately, it's a horrendously poor portrayal of living with a disability and a shitty book to boot.

The author projected her own revulsi

Fast on the heels of the wallpaper Bollywood star comes the wallpaper amputee physiotherapist.

Book #4 of the Bad Blood Harlequin series is titled "The Fearless Maverick" and is the story of ubermasculine (seriously, that's how the heroine thinks of him on first meeting) multi-millionaire playboy and race car driver, Alex Wolfe.

What he races is anyone's guess (Formula, NASCAR, smash up derby, go-karts???) but there's tons of money involved. Alex crashes his car, has a spectacular wreck and part

Alex is a famous race car driver aiming for his third World Championship title, when he has an accident on the track. The doctors won't let him drive unless he gets an okay from a physio therapist. His answer to that: find a female that he could bribe/seduce into declaring him fit. That didn't go as planned. First Libby is not a kind of person accept bribes and won't do anything that could later on destroy his career. And next to that he starts to fall for her. Throughout the book he treats her ...more

My favorite quote:
Oh, there won’t be much need for clothes,’ she said, stopping before the front doors. ‘On your part, at least.’


Alex Wolfe is a famous race-car driver and Anabelle's twin(their father attacked her). He because of lack of concentration and thinking about Jacob's return is involved in a car-crash and needs therapy. Our heroine Libby is a therapist but that's not all she is, she was a world-class surf champion with a champion fiancee when she had a terrible accident that ended her

The story begins with the hero Alex, a famous racing car driver, being involved in a crash after becoming distracted with his memories of his dark childhood, caused by learning about his eldest brother Jacob's return. Due to an injury he is told he will not race for a while and will need physiotherapy treatment and sign off before his return. Alex's solution to get back to racing as quickly as possible is to find a [female] physiotherapist who will not be able to resist his charms, in the hope h ...more

No wonder this won the Ruby for Short Sexy Category. Engaging, lovable characters who are falling in love but have serious problems to overcome. A wounded hero and heroine who have it in them to save each other makes an emotionally satisfying and heart lifting story. I'll be rereading this book.

Where The Sand And Asphalt Meet.....d;)

I loved this!! The h was a feisty, spunky, modern girl who had to rebuild her life after tragedy struck. She wasn't looking for love, but when it raced in 100 mph, she took a chance and wouldn't settle for less than everything. The H used his racing career as a means to escape his dark childhood. The H was a good guy and he cared about the h. After some soul searching, and meeting his past, he realized there were more important things than a checkered flag.

Cada libro vamos conociendo un poco mas a los hermanos Wolfe, y todos son encantadores, sexys y te enamoran. Sin embargo, Alex es hasta ahora el que mejor me cayó. Si bien el vivió todo el drama de ser el hijo de WW, y estar rodeado de violencia, dolor, no conocer a su madre y demás, el todo lo vivio...diferente. Hermano gemelo de Annabella, unidos no solo por la sangre sino por ser uno el complemento del otro, todo lo que paso esa noche le pesa de una manera diferente.

Setelah baca 2 buku seri ke 2 dan ke 3, buku ini jadi menarik buat dibaca.


Alex, pembalap juara dunia, mengalami kecelakaan karena kehilangan konsentrasi sesaat. Sangat beruntung dia ga apa-apa. Hanya bahu kanannya cedera, sehingga harus diterapi.

Libby, seorang mantan juara dunia selancar, yang sudah beralih profesi menjadi terapis bersertifikat, dikontrak untuk menjadi terapis Alex.

Alex yang terbiasa tak terbantahkan, harus menuruti Libby. Perlahan tapi pasti ada ketertarikan di antara kedua

Although I loved this story, I hated the ending. I was so disappointed in the heroine. She just raced to him when he called and slept with him. I know she took a stand afterward and walked away but it still bothered me. Otherwise, I'd like to read more from this author.

More of the notorious Wolfes saga. In this part, racecar bad boy Alex Wolfe is distracted when he hear's from his twin, Annabelle. That distraction leads to a crash and injury that requires he seek out physical therapy. None other than a former World Surfing Champion, Libby Henderson, is commissioned to come to his aid.

The sparks ignite quickly, but Libby has a secret, and a fear of letting herself be hurt again. Taking a chance with Alex, she would have to decide if she could face that pain, o

This was included in an omnibus I had. The premise didn't engage me.

Akhirnya,,ada juga series ini yg "agak bagus" karna dr kmrn baca seriesnya bikin sebel..yg ceritanya bertele2; konfliknya cuman ala kadar; atau hero dan heroineny lemot..kan capek sendiri bacanya...

Gw suka karakter Libby, dan gw juga suka gaya Alex meminta maaf.. Memberikan sebatang bambu dan menceritakan cara bambu tsb..sapa yg ga klepek2...

Yg bikin bete itu, waktu Alex memutuskan Libby secara sepihak,,itu bikin gw keki banget sama cowok ini..tp dibalas telak dg Libby yg menolak permintaan maaf

I really enjoyed this. Any story that makes me wonder how they will work it out is a bonus. Alex is a racing car driver who gets injured. He needs to get fit enough for his next race so enlists the help of physiotherapist Libby. They both have their issues from the past and how they are dealt with here is believeable and not predictable. Sweet at times. This was my first read of a Robyn Grady book and won't be the last.

This was a Goodreads First Read.
Annabeth Leong
Solidly enjoyable. Both characters felt fully realized, with interesting, unique back stories and details. The conflict that kept them apart felt fresh, unique, and compelling.

It's held back from being exceptional, in my opinion, by some nonsensical arguments. There were times when I was just as confused about what Libby (the heroine) wanted as Alex (the hero) was
