Southern charmer Brooks Carter has always dreamed of being a racer. He fought tooth and nail to escape his rough childhood with an alcoholic mother and get where he is today. He knows Ridley Racing is the team to elevate him to star status, but good girl Faith Ridley, his boss's gorgeous daughter, might just put a wrench in his plans. Faith hadn't expected to fall for the newcomer, especially when her brother, superstar racer Roscoe, considers him an enemy. Faith thinks she has Brooks all figured out—that he's just another egotistical hothead—but she soon realizes she's very wrong and that the palpable chemistry between them has one inevitable outcome. They succumb to their passion, knowing it's the worst decision either of them can make. But when a one-night stand becomes something more, can Brooks and Faith find a way to keep their love on track? Bliss's (Wicked Impulse; Throttle Me) latest contribution to the "Misadventures" series puts a twist on the familiar "good girl meets cocky athlete" trope by incorporating the exhilarating world of professional racing. Confident Brooks is an adrenaline junkie, but he lets his softer side emerge around the sweet and sinful Faith.
VERDICT Rife with playful sexcapades and sentimental moments; recommended for fans of impassioned quickies balanced with plenty of heart.
