A FAST WOMAN LARALYN DORAN
People called me a fast woman—not because I slept around—because I broke men’s hearts on the racetrack when I beat them.
While climbing up stock car’s highest level of racing, I learned three truths: Adrenaline was my drug of choice, wearing a pair of heels was a form of torture, and I didn’t have time for distractions—especially from men.
I had one goal—a Cup Series contract—and it was within my reach. Until Grady McBane cut me off—sending me, and my dreams, into a tailspin.
His damn smile, his charm, his talent… his touch. Damn hormones overrode my focus.
The moment the beautiful, spitfire CJ Lomax tripped into my arms, it felt right.
Then Karma stepped in and laughed—Redeeming my reputation meant ruining her dream.
Even though I needed the contract to salvage my career, I found myself chasing her instead of racing her. Her focus, her sass, her grit…her passion. I wanted it—I want her.
Could we cross the finish line without wrecking each other’s hearts?
Strap in... it's a hell of a ride.
|The fast woman is a book about a woman C. J. Lomax has been driving, racing her whole life. Now thinking that she will finally get a full-time ride on the big boy’s circuit she finds out that she will be sharing half the ride with an Indy driver who was suspended for a year. Not happy she agrees to the terms.|
Grady the Indy driver puts his foot in his mouth early in the story for he does not know the history of the family or of C.J. and some of the other drivers. Once he starts putting everything together and hears the back story about C.J. and her ex who died he begins to get a feel for what is going on besides racing.
This is really is what this book was about, yes there is plenty of action on the speedway and the author did a good job describing the racing and the talking from driver to spotter. But you see all of the backstories with C.J. and you also see how Mr. Merrick really has used his relationship with her and his own daughter Harper as a way to hinder their growth instead of letting them soar.
I will say that the woman that C.J. was at the beginning driving her Ducati and giving everyone hell, change partway through because she and Grady were dating. I had hoped she would have stayed the same. But the ending with her and Harper and the Aunt and what they did to Mr. Merrick was classic. Overall a good story with many different characters and they all work for the book. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 4 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com
