3 stars – Contemporary Romance

I totally picked up this HQ Blaze because of the hot stud with a killer body and sexy grease smudges on the cover, but it turned out to be a pretty steamy, sweet contemporary romance and a fun, quick read.

Race car mechanic/driver Trey “Whip” Davis returns to his hometown of Dahlia, Tennessee to put his dad’s racing business affairs in order, reunites with his high school crush Cardin Worth, who happens to be the granddaughter of his family’s biggest rival, and agr
Trey "Whip" Davis returns to his hometown only once a year, when his dragster team visits Dahlia, Tennessee for the Farron Fuels race. This year, though, he's staying a little longer, prepping his house for sale...And finally getting a green light to get close to his high-school crush, Cardin Worth.

Trey's father and Cardin's grandfather had come to blows a year ago, resulting in a severe accident for Cardin's father who just happened to be around, and a rift between her parents. Sick and tired o

Trey trifft wieder auf seine Jugendliebe Cardin. Die Anziehungskraft zwischen ihnen ist groß. Cardin hat einen Plan um ihre Eltern wieder zusammen zu bringen. Doch sie braucht die Hilfe von Trey. Der ist erst etwas überrascht, doch der Sex hat es in sich. Also lässt er sich auf das Spiel ein.

Die Geschichte hatte genau die richtige Mischung. Eine schöne Geschichte mit vielen Gefühlen und heißem Sex. Obwohl es die Geschichte mehr untermalt als dominiert. Trey ist ein Kerl den ich auch nicht von de

Seven years ago Cardin had one confusing night first witnessing her crush Trey Davis in a compromising position, only to find herself on the receiving end later. Trey has only let one woman unnerve him and that was Cardin, walking away to pursue his dreams was easier than wanting a woman whose family has been feuding with his own for years.

When Cardin proposes a way to end the long running feud, Trey is more than willing to participate especially when he finds that his desire for her is returned

okay, but very short and light on development...

This book was pretty good and best for passing the time. I liked the scheme becomes real during thing, that was a new twist to what usually happens. I liked the humor and dedication shown in this book. I also liked how there was the communication angle. I really agree with that and am always trying to be better at that (it's kinda hard sometimes). Anyhow, I would read this book again but not search it out.
Dawn ♥ romance
I liked this steamy book enough to finish but the plot setup was a bit confusing at first especially about a particular blow job incident. The main secret of the story dragged on so long I almost didn't care. Set in a car-racing town, Cardin asks mechanic Trey to be her fake fiance hoping to heal the breach amongst their families.

I often read of or hear about authors who knew they were meant to tell stories from the time they left the crib. Me? I didn't decide what I wanted to be when I grew up until I was thirty years old - and then sold my first book at thirty-four. Still, it was obvious that I always knew I was going places.

Like so many other authors, I was a voracious reader from day one, devouring everything from Nanc
