I almost had everything, until the curve took them from me.

This is such a wonderful love story. One that spanned two decades and still left you wanting to know more. The characters are deep and well developed. The plot is fantastic and fast paced. Who doesn't love a fictional boyfriend that drives a race car? Are you kidding me! And Makayla is equally dreamy as the strong and determined female lead who also drives a race car by the

Fast, Sexy and Sweet

I love this book... spicy and sweet. With a dark reality and struggles of life, this book made me get goosebumps. I held my breath at times, swooned, and cried. Well written, and I love that the authors can make me feel like I've known them all my life.

My Thoughts on The Curve

This was a sweet, yet steamy, fast paced, but entertaining story. Makayla and Kelley were very strong willed but engaging characters and watching their romance build and grow made for a wonderful experience.

I have to admit that there was a part in the story where I didn't love the hero Kelley. He started off so great, and then turned into this huge jerk and I just couldn't understand why. And then as the story progressed, and certain facts were revealed, my heart thawed t

The Curve by Noelle Bodhaine is a sexy, thrilling and emotionally charged story that will leave you breathless. Set in the fast-paced world of professional racing, this story was well-written and full of angst, hot and steamy sex, exhilarating racing scenes, and unforgettable characters that the reader is sure to fall in love with. I read this story in one sitting, unable to put it down until I got to the end of Kelley and Makayla's journey.

“The straight is all about speed, but life is lived in the curves. Lived in the twists and turns and uncertainty of what lies around the corner. The curve could spell disaster or lead you home. But you'll never know until you wrap your hands tightly around the wheel and drive.”

This is the story of Makayla Love and Kelley Quinn. Makayla has always wanted to follow in her dad’s footsteps and race. It’s in her blood and has been her passion for as long as she can remember. Kelley is a race car driv

DIRTY KNEES REVIEWS: The Curve by Noelle Bodhaine 4 KNEES!
Makayla Love wanted to follow in her father's footsteps since she was a small child. Instead of playing with dolls and dress up she was in the garage listening to her father teach her the ins and outs of cars...especially the racing kind. She was his princess and protégé and would one day race under her father's watchful eye...guiding her to the top.
Kelley was an up and coming racing star. He had the talent but needed the knowledge and e

The Curve was a great 5 star read.

You get pulled right in and won’t want to put it down.
This is a great love story between Makayla and Kelley. These two have known each other for years until tragedy strikes and they go their own ways. Ten years has gone by before they reconnect. You can definitely feel the tension between these two.

I had a love hate relationship with Kelley, until I understood more about him and why he was acting like an a$$. I really li

This could have been a beautiful story, but it was poorly executed. I felt every important moment in the story abruptly cut of, and I was usually left wanting more. The male lead character lacked substance and only ever talked about the female lead in terms of her body and sex. There were also several times that I would have to turn back several pages, because something would happen but I wouldn't know how or why. Many scenes began well but then ended abruptly with no further explanation. On the ...more

Amazing Intense Ride!

This was an amazing book.

The beginning was a little slow, but it still had an impact on my heart.

As the story progressed I was in it for the long haul. Oh My God the love between these two was intense!! Holy hell once Kelley had his hands on Mack there was no turning back.

There were so many passages in this book that was beautifully written.

I loved this book, I look forward to reading more of her work and I would Definitly recommend this book to my friends.

I really enjoy sports books and I've always enjoyed racing movies. I didn't realize how much I would love a book about racing too! Their entire lifestyle is so intoxicating! I loved being able to see Makayla as a child and how she grew up with racing and then the stark contrast to when she was an adult. I usually don't like when an author skips so much time but with her story it was so perfect. And Kelley, I knew from the beginning he would be important but I didn't realize the level that they w ...more

Wow

I didn't want to put this one down nor did I want it to end - this book pulls you in from page one and will make you cry. Kelley is a young race car driver who is taken in under the wing of Makayla's dad - when tragedy strikes Kelley loses touch with the family - years later Makayla shows up to be the test driver for Kelly's team - one thing leads to another and its discovered that they've loved each other this whole time. You will not be sorry that you've read this book.

What a ride!

This was the first full book that I have read of Noelle's. I read her story, One Last Cigarette in The River Walk. I enjoyed it, but it doesn't hold a candle to The Curve. My father used to watch the Indy 500 every year. He enjoyed cars and racing, therefore so do I. This book was different from others. I loved the story, the characters, the ending. I plan to read more of Noelle's work and I encourage others to do so as well.

This is such an enjoyable read. If you like fast cars, hot alpha men and the strong women that they adore then you will love The Curve! I'm hoping this turns into a series because there are definitely enough characters with great sub-stories to carry this further!

I loved this book, it was well written, the characters believable and with a good storyline, I was hooked from page one.
Makayla and Kelley were so right for each, though at times Kelley was an (can't put it in print) and I wanted to slap him, he was so cute and loveable it was impossible not to forgive him. No wonder Makayla had loved him since she was twelve years old.
A great read.

Great read. Author certainly knows her car races. Felt the attraction between the H/h both in the beginning, and when they were reunited with their mutual love of racing.
Meaghan Royce- Love Infinity Book Blog
I really loved this book. Mikayla and Kelley were both great characters. They were like family when she was only 12 years old and then a tragedy tore them apart. Ten years later, they become a part of each other's lives again. This story has pain but also great love and their chemistry is undeniable.

Needs an editor!! The plot might have been ok but I couldn't concentrate on it for all the grammatical and punctuation errors.
