Hard and Fast
Grad student Imogen Wilson realizes she's hit on the perfect thesis for her sociology degree. If she follows the so-called "rules" on how to get a man, can she steer her way into the world and hearts of stock race car drivers, and establish thei ...more
Take a look at the first paragraph :
Imogen glanced behind her to see why they needed to sprint, worried about a herd of angry race fans, a fire, or a sudden act of terrorism in the speedway.
What she saw was worse.
It was Nikki Borden. Twenty-two years old. Bouncy. Bubbly. Blond. Built like Barbie, thanks to Nikki’s campaign of personal starvation and the assistance of br ...more
I'm torn between 2 and 3 stars. To tell you the truth, I partially liked this book but didn't love it. The first half was ok but dragged on a bit. There was not much happening and nothing particularly brilliant or memorable in this half. However, the second half got much better. Around midway through this half, I really thought this book would definitely get 4 stars from me. Damn, was I wrong! The last 10% of the story was a train wreck. Both Ty and Imogen (mostly Imogen) made ...more
This is one of those books where I doubt a review is really necessary because considering how fantastic the first book in the ‘Fast Track’ series, “Flat-Out Sexy”, was and given the sexy-as-sin cover; it’s a no-brainer that even if it received bad reviews, I’d still have read it anyway and attempted to keep from drooling over the hunk-a-licious stud on the cover in the process.
But, it’s actually a great read and has lots going for it besides the hottastic b ...more
Imogen is a friend to Tamara, the heroine from Flat Out Sexy. She is also a grad student working on her thesis. She gets sudden inspiration while at a stock car race, and sitting next one of the driver’s bimbos. The girl was reading book called “How to marry a race car drive in 6 easy steps” (or something l ...more
Did anyone else keep flipping back to the cover while reading this book to ogle the stud-muffin on the front? I know I did! But seriously, enjoyable book that's sort of a borderline erotic romance. Very steamy with interesting characters and a nice romance.
Hard and Fast is the second book in Erin McCarthy's Fast Track, NASCAR-centered series. I don't think you have to read the first book in the series to understand this one, but I do think it would be beneficial to read them in or ...more

When I started this book, I knowingly skipped book one of the series. I skipped it because it didn’t sound like I would really like it, but I did like the idea of the series (being set in the car racing world). I mean, who doesn't like a hot guy in a fast car? Am I right??
Anyway, with that, I gave this book a go, and...it was okay. I was able to read it in on ...more
Some of the things that popped out of Imogen's mouth didn't sound believable and the whole gist of her doctorate "thesis" (dissertation)was kind of dumb. I liked how Ty was willing to do anything and everything to win her, including dealing with his dyslexia and learning t ...more
Is there anything better than a smart, hot and sexy, sweet book about adults (experienced and mature) people who fall in love, get together and let me go with them to the expected Happily.Ever.After. May I also laugh, smile, meet their nice friends (new and old book-friends in the stock car word) and avoid baddies, pesky intrigue and a lot of unnecessary anxiety, I'm fortunate. Just straight on towards big love! Is that what you want, it's atleast ...more
Imogen is sure she's finally found something new and different for her sociolo ...more
Hard and Fast had two neat characters (Imogen and Ty). There wasn't any bickering, but a nice budding romance that went from zero to sixty in a few pages. Imogen and Ty first appeared in Flat-Out Sexy: Imogen is Tamara's assistant and Ty was Hunter's godfather (Hunter is Tamara's child). The plot of the story morphed a few ti ...more
I loved Ty, he was such a sweetheart and I loved that he called Imogen “Emma Jean” and “Engine”, it was so cute. Although I like awkward and quiet heroines Imogen was a bit too insensitive for me, especially near the end. Despite my issues with Imogen I enjoyed the romance, the sexy times were scorching and a lot of fun, but I must say the love declarations and marriage proposal was way too sudden, even for me.
I didn’t love this one as much as the first one, but it was still a very s...more
I love Ty. Love him. He is so sweet and cute and sexy and special. It sounds lame but he really was special. He was a hero I never came across before and I just love him so much! Annnd...I wanted to hug him so badly when he was emb ...more
Wow! I'm amazed by this hilarious, sappy and very steamy story. Where have you been and why haven't I read you before? There are few things better than trying a new author and finding a new favorite book. I laughed so much, you know really laughing my ass off, and grinning so much that my cheeks hurt. I want to read it again!
I could so relate to Imogen (maybe because I'm also a PhD student, a bit of nerd, not pretty-pretty and straightforward). She cracked me up wi ...more
Ty and Imogen were great together. I really loved their chemistry and their banter. The smexing was steamy and I loved Ty's dominant tendancies.
Imogen is a character that has lingered with him. I often forget the heroine's names in books (perhaps inserting myself instead of them???) but I found her hilarious and her lack of "game" was just too funny in the NASCAR world of "pla ...more
This book was not as good as the first but still an amazing read. What I liked the most about the series is that you get to care for the characters and their lives. I love it when an author is able to give different personalities to each of their characters. Some series I read have started to be very predictable because all the characters behave the very same way (specially i ...more
Ty McCordle was introduced to us in 'Flat Out Sexy'. He came across as a laid back, ladies man, but in this book becomes more much 3 dimensional. Ty is dyslexic and never learned how to read.
The romance between Imogen and Ty was very sweet. I found myself frustrated by Imogen and her lack of being able to be discreet, but that is part of her charm. Ty's insecurity was examined and I found it heartbreaking, but ...more
