Blurb (from Goodreads):
For Mackenzie Cox, racing motorcycles is in her blood. Born into a family legacy, she's determined to show the world that she has inherited her father's talent in this male-dominated sport. The last thing Kenzie needs is to be antagonised by her rival team's newest rider, Hayden Hayes. Hayden, exceedingly arrogant and outrageously attractive, immediately gets under Kenzie's skin and she can't help but be distracted.
As Kenzie and Hayden push each other on the track, the electric energy between them off the track shifts into an intense - and strictly forbidden - attraction. The only rule between their two ultra-competitive teams is zero contact. Kenzie needs a win, and she also needs to stay away from Hayden. Unfortunately for her though, one thing has become all too clear: she can't.
Fuelled by passion, driven by desire, Hayden and Mackenzie both want to win more than anything else. Except for, maybe, each other. But anger, jealousy and extreme competitiveness aren't their only obstacles . . .
My rating: 3.25 of 5 stars
This was an adult contemporary romance, about a couple who raced motorcycles.
Kenzie was quite a fierce character, and she really hated it when people called her by anything other than her name! I thought her father was really harsh on her though, so it was good when she finally stood up to him.
The storyline in this was mostly related to the motorbike racing, and the romance seemed to take the back seat a bit. We got a storyline in which Hayden joined a rival motorcycle racing team, and took part in some illegal street racing, and another storyline about some possible bike tampering. I did enjoy the romance though, even thought I had to wait for it a bit and I thought that Kenzie and Hayden made a pretty sexy Romeo and Juliet.
The ending to this was pretty good, and I was pleased with the decision that Kenzie made.
6.5 out of 10
