She'd rather be behind the wheel of a truck than navigating cheesy pickup lines. But when Crystal makes a delivery to a NASCAR event, she meets the one guy who could blow all her preconceptions away....

When Harlequin first came out with their NASCAR series, I wondered how long it would last. Well, it’s been going strong for two years now and doesn’t appear to be losing any gas (pun intended). According to NASCAR statistics, about 30 million of their fans are women! So I’m guessing this venture is proving profitable for both parties and I must admit that I’ve enjoyed the NASCAR stories I’ve read so far. My latest from this series is “Overheated”
My first NASCAR romance. Pretty good may december story. The age difference here is 22 years. The heroine is 28 and the hero is 50. I enjoyed that the story involved difficulties revolving around their age difference. Their families did not approve. The ending was a bit facile but not so much that it impaired my enjoyment of the story. The NASCAR element was not overwhelming. So if you're like me and all you know about car racing is that they go around in a circle and occasionally crash, you won ...more

Chris and I met this guy (ie: the guy on the cover) in Amsterdam. I have to give the book five stars for that reason alone!

Unlike his family that has four generations of racing in their blood he prefers solving mathematical problems rather than driving. His son Steve even joined the racing world by working with his cousin, Kent. When he meets the most beautiful woman ever he decides it may be time to move on with his life.

Recommends it for: Sweet romance and family drama fans.

I was a bit iffy whether or not I would be able to get into this story if it was NASCAR heavy but the sport just served as a backdrop to set the stage and lives of the characters more than serve as a center. Crystal and Larry are a cute couple and I really loved that Larry was a mathematician/rocket scientist who worked for NASA. Crystal was a bit too feisty at times but seemed at her best when caring for her family or dog.

The drama between Crystal and her family felt more developed and focused

A twenty plus age difference between the main characters.
It's not often I find a pair with the much of an age difference.

How could I not love a book whose main character shares my name?

Barbara Dunlop penned--well pencilled, actually--her first major work of fiction at the age of eight. It was entitled How The Giraffe Got His Long Neck and was released to rave reviews. Unfortunately, the print run of one copy hindered distribution. But the experience whet her appetite for celebrity and acclaim.

Three years later she became a reporter for the venerated publication, The Berry Street
