Let me say it has a predictable ending, but what romance doesn't have the ending where the happy couple marries or at least gets engaged?

There were some things that were different with this compared to others that are based on NASCAR. The biggest, is that the heroine was the driver. The other is that the hero is "flawed", he has a disability that affects how he lives. One of the other differences is that he is her boss as he is the team owner and a former driver.

Gabby O'Farrell might have flitted around trying to decide what she wanted to be when she grew up, but now she has not doubts. She discovered car racing and that she's good at it.

Read this book doing "research" for a NASCAR romance novel that I'm planning on writing with a friend. But out of the 5 I read, it was one of the top 3. I even kind of liked the characters, though the writing could have been better. I mean, it's a NASCAR romance novel. Enough said.
The hero, a widower with a 6 year daughter, is an ex-Nascar driver who suffers from "reflex sympathetic dystrophy", a syndrome that causes pain in his damaged/dysfunctional right arm and hand. Miraculous partial recovery at the end.
Not a bad story, but the numerous errors regarding NASCAR ruined it. If you're going to do it, Ken, do it right.
