⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2! Racer (stand-alone). Life, love & racing in a fast paced bad boy street racer meets good girl daughter of his new boss romance!

“Feels like you’re always feeding me.”
Purely selfish reasons. I get hard watching your mouth do anything at all.”

Sadly, this book was just okay. The thing is, I'm disappointed with the F1 aspect of the story. The whole thing was kind of ridiculous.

Firstly, I don't understand why the heroine can't buy herself a hot dog or a first class plane ticket. Her family owns an F1 team and several F1 cars, for god's sake! Cars worth MILLIONS of dollars. And yes, I'm perfectly aware they're almost broke. But a hot dog?

Secondly, their F1 team consists of her three brothers and her father.

I didn’t think I would ever find something like this ever again, much less that it could surpass it. I feel my heart almost burst open as I lie in bed cuddled up to this man who holds me to his chest now protecting me with his body against anything and everything. He lays over me as my shield.

➳We first read about him when he was a child, and the phrase “like father, like son” is given full justice in this compelling novel by the one and only Katy Evans…

➳When it comes down to having a mindset that will get you what you want, when you want it, it is a good thing to know that Racer Tate will not out do that method. As well, when we first met Racer back in Legend, we knew that he would be a little man to steal hearts from left and right. Thankfully he didn’t become an ultimate playbo

I need to read more books with professional race car driver heroes. There’s just something about them that gets me HOT. Especially intense, dirty-talking ones.

Fans of the Real series will be in for a treat because Katy Evans’ new book is about Remy and Brooke’s little boy, Racer. This time, little Racer is not so little anymore. Not to worry though, this book is still a standalone, so it’s fine if you haven’t read any of the Real books yet

➦Sitting here and wishing there were more books about racers. Because, honestly... they are sexy beasts who love danger and speed. It sounds real exciting. I'll go on a limb and make an assumption tht since most romance writers are female they might not know much about cars or just not care for them? I still don't know what makes them wheels spin. lol

➦I'll hand it to Katy Evans and say that the car/racing aspect of the book was pretty well done. I used to watch F1 religiously but at some point I

The plot was engaging. Like I said above it was low angst and there was no OW/OM drama. The sex scenes were hot.

I really really love this series. Remy is still my favorite of the series, but I really loved Racer too. I liked that Racer was a bit like his dad, but I still felt like he was his own person. I would have liked more Remy and Brooke. I would have liked more catching up with past couples. I liked Lana a lot but the reason this book was 4 and not 5 stars was her and her dead ex. It would have been better if she did not talk about her dead ex so much in the book. I need the couples I read about to ...more

'RACER' is the seventh book in Katy Evans 'Real' series but can be read as a complete standalone.

Twenty-two year old ‘Lana Heyworth’ and her over protective family moved to Europe a few years back (father and three older brothers) to pursue her father's dream which then became hers to start a Formula One Team called HW Racing, with the dream of becoming successful, Lana is the team's PR, success is always out of their grasp though.

Well this was one little fast ride! A racing bad boy and the woman who brings him to his knees? I practically drooled on the spot when I heard about this story and let me tell you, the story itself was one adrenaline-pumping, sexy read.

Being the son of a famous fighter, Racer Tate is keen to make his own mark in racing. Already a legend in street racing, he has everything that a man can want

You probably know how obsessed I am with my Ultimate Book Boyfriend, Remy, so when Racer's book was announced I was hoping NDS secretly praying that he was all that his dad was (not more, because that is impossible!). Well, it seems all my prayers and wishes can true because Katy Evans blew my freaking mind!!! On Racer, Katy managed to take my heart, make it flutter, thump, squeeze and soar, so very much!

Another amazing read from the creator of Remy Tate! This time we get Remy’s son; Racer! I’ve got to say, I never thought anyone could get even close to Remy’s intensity and sex appeal; but his son comes damn close! I loved him almost as much!!!

This was a great read, my only complaint was that I would have loved an epilogue!!! Other than that I loved this story, and I hope we get a book about Racer’s sister, Iris!!!!

Racer Tate. Yup. Son of one of our all-time-favorite #BookBoyfriends Remy Tate.
He's all grown up now and trying to find his place in life.
He didn't catch the fight-bug from his dad - his passion is - like his name already suggests - car racing.
He's been doing illegal street races. He's the best of the best.
But all that changes when Lana enters his life. He's immediately fascinated. He just knows that she's the ONE! The one person who will be the peace that his soul has been searching for.

Ladies...are you ready? Revvv up your engines because Katy Evans is going full throttle as she delivers one of the most sexiest, sincere, heartfelt, and intoxicating romance this fall. First she gave us Remy Tate and now she has bestowed us with Remy and Brooke’s son, Racer Tate who in my book, is a force to be reckoned with.

That was a riveting race tale! Hot sex and fast cars, page turning suspense and sizzling romance, it had everything I like!

This is the story of Racer and Lana. Racer is so freaking hot and sexy! OMG..he's a race car driver! But not only that I just loved his swag, the way he talked, his confidence, his hot temper, his possessiveness and his heart for Lana. Lana is a woman not only gorgeous, but also smart and she knows everything about F1.

I was so excited to read this book, to read about little Racer, that once I got my copy I had to stop everything to read it. This book doesn’t disappoint. My Remy and Brooke’s son is so much more than I hoped. Lets just say "like father, like son"

Racer, a blue eyed dare devil, is one sexy man. He’s a street car racer, the best in the field. Lana is looking for the best driver to help save her family's F1 team, and she finds him in Racer. Their relationship was intense from the star

It has been a long time since I have read about Remy. I am gonna be honest here and confess, that I have not read all the books in the "Real" series...yet. I've only read the ones about Remy and Brooke, but when I found out this was about "Racer", Remy and Brooke's son, I had to give it a go ;)

Racer seems to share a lot of trades with his dad. The one difference however, is that Racer has a passion for racing instead of fighting.

Lana also has a passion for racing, but her's is a completely diffe

Katy Evans is trying to capture the magic of her first book, Real, but fails to create a decent plot and decent characters. Racer (which is a stupid name) and Lana (who is a pitiful excuse for a heroine) act like two blowup dolls that can’t stop humping each other. How many times on EACH PAGE do you have to read that “my eyes locked with his” and “my nipples blah blah blah”?? Girl give it a rest.
Personal opinion:
Katy Evans peaked at Real and hasn’t written a solid book since. #sorry

Racer is a standalone and is part of the Real series. Racer is Remy and Booke’s son.

I’m SUPER excited for this book! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again I never want this series to end. Racer is a steamy treat and met all of my expectations and more. I’ll say it again, it’s a VERY steamy book, which was exactly what I was in the mood for.

What I really liked about this book was well, pretty much everything. I love Katy Evans writing style and I love how each book keeps

In July 2013 I picked up a book by Katy Evans called Real. It took me by surprise; I had never read anything like it. It had this main character whose intensity and determination towards his love interest was instant and laced with the battle cry of MINE.

Evans gave the feel of overwhelming want, lust, care, and love.

Finally caught up to the Real series. Racer is a great book which features a next generation character. Our protagonist is Racer Tate. He's no longer the cute baby I adored in the previous novels. He's a grown up and is very much like his father, Remington Tate (Real, Mine,Remy). He's intense, charismatic, athletic and thrill-seeker except he didn't follow his father's footsteps in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). His name says it all. He's naturally talented and born to dominate the motorsport indust ...more
