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?

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.

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.
