As one of only two girls on the tween racing circuit, Shawn Hamby has always run with a fast crowd. But now at thirty-two, she doesn’t need to prove anything to anyone. And she definitely doesn’t need a man bossing her around off of the track…
Putting the pedal to the metal…

Sometimes I think this series is running out of steam, but after meeting Shawn's friend Harley, and reading about her feelings for her bad boy boss, I think I want it to continue for at l ...more
Sadly, I was a tad disappointed once I'd ventured beyond the cover only to realize that this was another failed attempt at the new mainstream BDSM trend that's so popular right now. Don't get me wrong, I like a good dom/sub as much as the next smut reader, but when it doesn't feel genuine it seriously just kills the whole ...more
Book love, people, book effing love. Full Throttle totally had all my engines revving from the very start. A curious book club, a fetish club, accidentally getting felt up by your best friends baby brother-in-law at said fetish club (oops!). Add in a marriage of convenience and awesome characters that literally had me gigglesnorting and choking back laughs one minute and the next had me squirming because omg these two are HOT! and I was just in reader girl heaven.
So, basically, in a s ...more

First off, I found the main characters, Shawn & Rhett, to be mostly uninteresting. I didn’t hate them, but I didn’t like them much either. I just really couldn’t connect with them in any way.
Second, the dominant/submissively sex scenes are not my thing personally. I’d say it was 50 Shades lite, except I never read that because that doesn’t appeal to me in any way. Honestly I think it’s not fair to introduce that kind of dynamic in an established series that isn't erotica.
FULL THROTTLE was certainly my least favorite book of this series.
I thought both characters were very flat. The story set up wasn’t one to really grab my attention.
I wonder if the author did any research on bedroom doms because Rhett was not a realistic one. He claimed not to be a ‘true’ dom, but it made matters even worse with him being a fake. His tactics in the bedroom with Shawn just didn’t roll with me and she didn’t help matters.
Shawn was exhausting too. When her gra ...more
What a disappointment. This book was obviously McCarthy's attempt at jumping on the BDSM waggon and let me tell you, she didn't make it there. I loved the first novels in the Fast Track series, especially Flat-Out Sexy, as the main characters were believable and the setting of motor racing was something new for me. But this - both heroine and hero are extremely boring and I couldn't have cared less what was happening to them. The BDSM part was neither here nor there, the characters from the prev...more
For years the Fast Track series has been on my auto buy shelf. I love the fast past, somewhat funny romances this author produces and hope her spark will pick back up in the next one. I am not done with this series!
I loved Rhett! I didn't car for Shawn too much. The ending was abrupt, I felt she just quit in the middle of the ...more
I’ve always been a big fan of the series and one of the reasons is the feeling of “family” that this group of characters has. And usually, I also enjoy the little bit of sports that actually goes into the stories. They are sweet and just enough sexy and all around feel-good reads.
FULL THROTTLE was different then what we’ve seen in this series before, while still being everything I expected. A little bit less sports and lot spicier. Rhett, our hero named after Rhett Butler, is young, in ...more
Shawn Hamby has recently lost her grandfather who raised her when her parents broke up. He taught her all he knew about running his racing circuit and at thirty two all she dreams about is keeping it afloat. She's always ...more
I felt for Shawn when her Grandfather's will was laid out for her. I hated that she had so many constrictions in the way of her dream. I knew right away that Shawn's answer was Rhett and couldn't wait ...more

Shawn thought that after her grandfather had passed away that he would leave his dirt track to her. He did of course but there is one stipulation. She has to be married in order to get it.
Rhett.. Yes that's his real name. The baby brother to Nolan and brother in law to Eve. Rhett works on Eve's pit crew but his true love is dirt track racing with a ...more
Everyone one of the Fast Track books have been enjoyably. And they have all been full of witty characters that had fun with each other and drew us into their world easily. Altho, Rhett could have had a tiny bit more patience when it came to 'love', he didnt come across as obnoxious or demanding, just a little overbearing LOL ... let a girl catch up will ya LOL
From meeting at a BDSM club to getting married to satisfy a will to wat ...more
For me is the worst book of the series, i think she wasted great characters behind a story that she even know how to develop
That said, the writing is sufficiently good to still make an enjoyable, steamy read - but feels formulaic as opposed to many of her earlier books
Shawn Hamby grew up around racing having been raised by her grandparents who owned a dirt track. She’d even tried her hand at racing when she was younger, but gave it up to handle the business side of the track, working side by side with her beloved grandfather. When he dies, he leaves her the track with some rather odd restrictions.

Quick & Dirty: Marriage of convenience with an Alpha male.
Opening Sentence: “I double dog dare you.”
There are moments as I read and review books when I have to stop and remind myself that this is what I truly longed to be doing full-time when I was a high school nerd with very few friends. I would love to tell the 15 year old me to hang in there because one of my dreams will come true before I reach forty.
But back to our regularly scheduled revi ...more
