First thought: It wasn’t bad, but it could’ve been better.

Well-written and well-paced with a plethora of interesting and different characters, smokin’ hot, exciting in its race-track imagery...But there was something off. First of all, the initial premise was ruined by the heroine and her rather self-centered offer of possible help for a dying man. Second, and biggest problem of all, the suspense somehow didn’t work. Okay, it did work, until the real motive was revealed. It just caused a great d
The romance part was actually pretty good, it was everything else that bugged me.
One of my pet peeves in romantic-suspense plots is when the characters do something way too stupid for me to believe. (view spoiler)
I didn't like Killer Curves, the problem was the story and the characters, I didn't like them or their actions.

Celeste Bennet just got engaged for the third time for the lamest reason, she couldn't say no when her dad was watching. What phooey and I thought what a push-over, okay but that is just the start, then she sees NASCAR driver Beau Lancing while she is meeting with her friend and she knows. You see Celeste has a secret, since the age of 14 she has know that she is not her father's daught
I went into this one not expecting much as the thought of NASCAR is about as fun as watching the grass grow, but I was quickly sucked in and found that the car racing background made for great fun.

Celeste was such a stick in the mud at the beginning and it took having her world brought to question to make her question things, even things she knew, Beau was just luckily that he arrived when he did. Beau comes with surprising news for Celeste an is surprised when it seems like he has talked her i

This is an earlier work of Roxanne St. Claire. I started my reading relationship with the author much later. But I must say had I started earlier with this book...I would still be right where I of her most devoted fans.

Once I started this book I was all in. There were several interesting layers to this story that involved the two main characters Celeste and Beau. You watch Celeste navigate her way through secretly getting to know her long estrange father while deciding if she will give h
Although this sport romance did not have much originality in the characters and overall plot, it was enjoyable to read.

Overall the author could have been a little more subtle :
- the heroine's mother seems totally brainwashed and stupid to me ;
- the heroine's inability previously to the story to stand for herself pricked on me (her engagements, her non-choice of career) - however it goes with the poor little rich girl who never had enough attention while growing syndrom

3.5 stars: surprisingly good romantic suspense

I really like Roxanne St Clair's Bullet Catcher series and thought I would try one of her earlier books. I didn't expect as much out of this one because when I read it was about a race car driver I was expecting your typical contemporary romance. It ended up being a pretty good romantic suspense book....very originally done with the hero being a NASCAR driver, rather than the typical cop, FBI agent or spy. I'm not a racing fan but the behind the scen
3.5* A fun fast read without many of the pitfalls so common in romances today. There wasn't tons of "internal monologuing" going on, the two main characters were likable people who treated each other respectfully even when the motives weren't 100% clear, the physical attraction was there but it didn't overpower the rest of the plot, and the plot was decent if not original. A recommended read if you like your romances mixed with a little suspense/action.
Not the best plot but loved the characters. Beau Lansing contacts Celeste and asks her to meet and help save his good friends life. His good friend happens to be Celeste's father who she has never met. Why in this book Celeste and her Mother never talk until the end is odd. That is the part of the plot that is weak.
This has a slightly different tone than the Bullet Catcher and its spin-off series. For starters, neither the hero nor the heroine has any military background. And the suspense took a backseat for most of the part. I think this is more contemporary romance than romantic suspense, at least for RST's standard.
This isn't your ordinary NASCAR romance. Not by a long shot! When I began this book, I thought it was a racing romance with a twist. But, it's so much more. It's romantic suspense at it's very best. This book is a keeper.
Adored this book! I spent the summer making my way through Roxanne St. Claire's backlist and this was one of my favs. Yes, it's Nascar, but I just loved it!! Highly recommend!

Just ridiculously delicious. A crazy stalker-type person and racing? Plus a NYC deb on the lam? What more could a girl possibly ask for?

I read this a couple of years ago. It's a Nascar-themed romance novel. This one was a bit cheesy but it was still enjoyable.

My only complaint is that Roxanne doesn't write more Nascar books! I loved this one :)
Loved it! First book by Roxanne St. Claire, but definitely not my last.

I don’t know about you, but when I check out an author's bio, it’s usually because I’ve read a book I liked and wondered about the person behind it. Let's skip the formal bio and I'll give you the inside scoop on who Roxanne St. Claire really is.
