It’s not always about the win. Sometimes it’s about the hot laps you learn from.

He’s rarely taken seriously … she’s never taken seriously.
Casten Riley is living his life the way most kinds only dream. Working for the family business, he’s never had much to worry about. And, if he did, he’s not the type to worry. He’s adorable as some would say, sharp, witty, and never sh

So Shey Stahl has popped back up publishing another book when she was busted plagiarizing in nearly every book she wrote? Wow. That's brave and stupid.
And before any of her fangirls go crazy claiming it's all rumors or negativity or *gasp* bullying, read this:

Or you can read the side-by-side comparison I prepared for the cease and desist letter I sent her. These are passages from her book Everything Changes and my fan fiction, The Art Teacher:

https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B4vUz...

If she'd EVER speak directly to any of us she stole from, admit to what she did and make some kind of freaking apology for it, I'd be happy to go away. I'm tired of chasing her around the internet. But she won't deal with any of us and blocks us on all social media platforms, all the while getting fans and book bloggers to promote her books again. I'll just keep reminding people of what she did until she faces it.

Known plagiarizer. Read these books at your own risk. If you want to read the real deals, I can show you the way.

You're reading work from a thief. In my opinion.

P.S: I'm pretty sure the book you made the USA Today list with was a plagiarized fan fiction, Shey. So stop taking credit for it.

Hey, so SUPER CLEVER, Shey, posting a second profile of this book, like I wouldn't find it. Funny, all the one-star reviews calling you out for plagiarism are over on the OTHER profile while this one is full of nothing but glowing 5-star reviews, either from your deluded fangirls or you under sock accounts.
Anyway... Here I am to say the exact same thing.....

Actual rating: 0 stars

Shey Stahl could've been a successful writer, had she not messed up with the wrong fandom. By stealing from fanfiction writers, and shamelessly call it coincidences, Shey Stahl is no better that a corner store thief.

Don't support a writer that has build her fanbase on lies.

I have personally read every alleged plagiarism post as well as all Shey Stahls books. If you run the fan fic. through as plagiarism comparison program as well as Shey stahls books it comes up as no intentional plagiarism. I have seen some of the post of the books they the writers are saying were stolen works and I hate to be the one to point this out but.... I have read hundreds of books that are very similar and in some cases have similar characters and even some of the same lines.

This book is plagiarized... And everyone should know that. Stahl is wronging all of those authors she stole from while degrading herself in the process. How she continues to garner readers is beyond me.

Please don't read this crap. This woman steals from different authors.

Shey Stahl has been labeled a plagiarizer from her previously published books that have since been pulled.

Below is a link that gives an account of the scandal. I'll let you be the judge of it.

Too many books to read by authors who have not stolen others words.
No thank you.
If you have plagiarized before, you can do it again.
Moving on.

I found out that this was available, and I about died. The racing series has been a 'go-to' book when I'm in a book slump. I have seriously fallen in love with the Riley Clan, and eagerly await books in this series. I read Delayed Penalty, but it just didn't hit the spot that the Racing on the Edge series did.

Casten Riley has always seemed to me to be a real, I guess what you'd call it, "Fuck-up" and "Party Boy." However, in this book he's really stepped up, and become someone to respect and ad

I have missed the Riley racing family more than I realized and Casten's story was an absolute joy. He and Hayden alternated between melting me, making me laugh until I had tears running down my face, wanting to slap one of them and swooning all over again. They are two halves of a whole who see and find the fun in life, finding a love they never expected as they negotiate the unexpected right turns that turn their dirt track into a road course. (If you have read the rest of the series or follow ...more

Ignore the haters writing multiple reviews due to something that happened to another book. This is an awesome book. I can understand why people get mad about "stealing books". For the Summer was my least favorite book written by Shey Stahl. I see similarities from all the blogs. But I can similarities from all authors.

Racing on The Edge series is one of my Favorite Series. Shey Stahl writes these characters in a way where I want to be a part of their family. This book was kept true to her writi

Shey! Another great read! I really missed the entire Racing on the Edge family and was so excited when I saw Hot Laps was released! You did not disappoint! Caston has continued to be the most entertaining of the Riley kids and I loved how the book showed a glimpse into the lives of the entire clan! I have to admit it took me a few chapters to enjoy Hayden. I mean Sway is a hard act to follow but eventually she won me over!

Thank you so much for continuing this series! I'm so excited for the next

Loved this book & series. I laughed so hard sometimes that I had tears in my eyes. I can't wait for more. I know that there are two more books coming but I am so hoping that the cousins, especially the twins & Cole get their own books. I am so glad that Shey continued writing & didn't give up because her true fans & supporters would have missed out on some great stories. I will continue to read any book that she publishes because she is one of my favorite authors.

Shey.. you did great on this! I laughed, I cried, and I just wanted to hug that boy! I'm so glad he found someone that will be his match in about everything he will do! Casten was too good of a guy to put up with alot of dram. Plus he just seems like a guy who wouldn't put up with it! Again, fantastic job again on story on the family we hold so close to our hearts!
Romance Uninhibited
Love This SERIES. I am so happy that we get more of the RILEY Family. Casten is so free spirted, funny and Loving. This book had me laughing, Crying, and more in Love with this family. I can't wait to get more. You don't have to be inlove with Racing to love this series. But Racing will grow on you reading this.
