LIFE IN THE FAST LANERacing cars is in Kerri Hart's blood--literally, since it's the family business. But Hart Racing is in dire financial straits, and as the only female rookie driver, Kerri's sponsorship offers always tend to be of the unzipped racing-suit variety. It's a message she'd rather not sell to her young fans. But how can she afford not to?LOVE ON OVERDRIVERanger Colt knows how to make a woman's heart race. But when his voice pops up on Kerri's headset--while she's in mid-tailspin--she's in no mood for his charms. Colt Hardware now has a significant stake in the Hart family business, and Kerri has no choice but to work with him. But when her ex-boyfriend makes a very public, tabloid-fodder scene that threatens to tarnish her image, it's Ranger who comes to the rescue. Pretending to be engaged to generate some good publicity seems like a good plan. In fact, it works--all too well. What begins as a ruse is revving up to feel a whole lot like the real thing. Will Kerri and Ranger's fake-lationship take a wild turn. . .and lead them toward the finish?"The type of book that keeps you up late into the night, In the Fast Lane is utterly addictive and completely satisfying. Audra North has her finger on the pulse of contemporary romance-flawless writing, smart heroines, and sexy-as-sin heroes."- Lauren Layne, USA Today bestselling author
In the Fast Lane is a fast paced book that will have you flipping the pages.
The story line takes place over a couple of months which makes for a quick and fun romance. I loved the idea of a race car driver and owner forming a relationship. They both have their issues with the other, but there are soooo many sparks that make it an awesome journey.
Kerri is now driving stock cars after racing in the indie league. She has many obstacles to overcome since she’s the only female driver. She’s not pleased with the person who bought over half the share in her racing team. She has to fight hard to show those in the racing world that she’s as capable as them behind the wheel, while still remembering that she is a girl, and wants a family, and all the other things. I had a love hate relationship with Ranger. He’s sweet sometimes and has a connection with Kerri. He’s got things that happened when he was young that he has to get over, and a hate of his father.
Both Kerri and Ranger have to overcome their dislike of each other amidst the chemistry. I love books where sparks fly, and the characters can’t stand each other in the beginning. It’s always awesome. And the racing story was amazing too. I loved everything about these characters.
