Shifting Gears

2, Hard Driving - A Hard Driving Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


She's not at all what he expected. He's just as sinfully sexy as she remembered. And together they're about to heat up the track.

Grady Hart is the black sheep of his family. For years he's managed the Hart Racing team, but while racing is in his blood, his real passion lies under the hood. Ready to start out on his own, all he needs to do is find a replacement for his old job. However, the best candidate for crew chief isn't someone he would have expected: sweet, proper Annabelle Murrary, the literal Girl Next Door who's definitely grown up since high school.

All her life Annabelle has tried to fit into the role of perfect daughter-and failed. Divorced, broke and living back home with her mother, she's tired of trying to live up to her parents' impossible standards. Taking on the position as crew chief for a successful racing team-and getting her hands dirty-is just what she's looking for...but first she has to get past her old crush on her new boss. After all, it's never smart to mix business with pleasure, or is it?

Great Characters, Hot Chemistry!

⭐ ⭐ Provided by Publisher in Exchange for an Honest Review ⭐ ⭐

Judging a Book by it's Cover:
Bright, bold colors, young edgy couple.
Looking Deeper:
Third-person POV, novella length. Second book in series, but can stand alone.
Grady is passionate, but a bit low on self-confidence. Annabelle is learning to stand on her own two feet. Both crushed on one another during there teens without the other knowing. Now she's back and they're just as in lust. She gets hired on at Hart Racing, he's branching out with Carbon Works.
Secondary characters mostly consist of the Hart crew and racing community that we've meet in book 1, however there are some additional characters included to create additional drama and conflict. Grady and Annabelle's chemistry is rather smokin' hot. Beware: Workplace Sex does occur! The dialogue and interaction are perfectly natural feeling. The plot is not bad, but was not as full and dynamic as I think it could have been - but given the length of the story, I'm pleased with what was packed in. The writing flowed smoothly. There were a few minor conflicts, but most were self-imposed or -inflicted. Problems were resolved in mediocre manners. There was some predictability, but not enough to ruin things. The conclusion was okay, but with all the hoopla throughout this installment around Kerri and Ranger's wedding, I'd thought for sure we'd read a little about the wedding. It was a bit of a disappointment when it did not happen.

Rating: 4.25 [R] ~ Score: 40.0 ~ Stars: 4
