**** This is a sweet sexy love story between Elena and Lennox. Elena lives and works with her uncle at a race car repair shop. Lennox is one of the racer.

When he was finally freed, Elena has moved on with her life. She is older, wiser and even more beautiful and irresistible than before. Lennox has to fight his way back as his racing family has outcasted him. When Lennox reappeared though Elena could not ignore all the old feelings that came flooding back. Did she really move on? Or will she succumb to the bad boy?
“I made a promise to you long ago, and I want you to know I – I haven’t forgotten about that. I swore to you that someday, if circumstances aligned, I’d be a better man. I’d be the man for you.”
I really enjoyed reading this book. For one thing it’s about race car so it’s pretty hot. Elena is a pretty brave girl who can stand up for herself especially for the man she loves. Lennox despite what everyone thinks, he is a good guy at heart. There are some actions in the story that makes your heart race… toward the end with the accident I was gasping for air and screaming NO, NO, NO! at the same time… you will see…
“God, Lennox. I don’t care about you being perfect… I just want you. All I’ve ever wanted is you.”
Over all it was a quick, fun (racing), sexy read. There are actions, angst, love, and plenty of heart-wrenching moments. The author was very descriptive in her writing especially when explaining the technicality of racing and about cars – seems she is very knowledgeable bout the subject. This was a great debut novel and I am looking forward to reading more of her novels in the future. If you love car racing, hot sexy type romance give this book a shot.
“I want to race. I want to be free.”
