BookWhisperer Rating:

How does a responsible, intelligent, career-driven girl find herself half-naked and hooking up with a bad boy Formula One driver in a Barcelona night club bathroom stall?

Siena Lazio is a lot of things but reckless isn't one of them.

She's only in her mid-twenties and already Team Ferrelli's Director of Public Relations and heiress to the top Formula One racing team. The esteemed daughter of Alfonso Lazio, the greatest driver F1 has ever seen, Siena seems to have it all figured out. All she has to do is uphold her family's honor and ensure her brother Enzo's public image is pristine while he rises to fame and clenches the title as Formula One's new champion.

Everything is perfect...

...Until she's swept mercilessly off her feet by the one man she can never be with. The one man who can fuck it all up.

Harrison Davies is Team McClain's secret weapon and he's the only driver who threatens to steal the championship from Enzo. The tattooed British bad boy knows how to get what he wants. And always gets what he wants.

Harrison and Siena fall deeper and deeper with each secret tryst. Passion flares, reality fades, and the lines between right and wrong begin to blur. Driven by lust and ambition the couple delves into a world of treachery, deceit, lies, and ultimate betrayal. Is Siena ready to place her fragile heart into the hands of a speed demon and will the thrill of falling for him be worth it when they wreck?

This book has really left me on the fence. Colleen Masters  created a story with a very potentate story line. The best words I have to describe this book is fast cars, fast hearts. Quite literally this was a fast love novel. It was almost instantaneous, and while I have expressed my love for the story line this is where things run a bit off track for me. From the first meeting our main characters feelings are immediate. They express their familiarity and fondness, but I just did not feel like this was validly backed up with the progression of the story. I didn't see these feelings festered and grew. It felt more like, "Believe what I say instead of what I do." Even with the development errors I was intrigued by this story, and pushed through out of curiosity. The conclusion left me with a cliff hanger that has me overwhelmingly distracted enough to continue the series, but I am at war with myself because I just really struggled with developing romance within these pages. I think I need to sit and reflect on the story for a bit, and maybe at a later date I was feel intrigued enough to continue with the next installment. More importantly, I am hoping that maybe this was just a transitional problem in this one book, and the next will blow me away.
