Blurb (from Goodreads):
The New York Times bestselling Driven series continues with a standalone story about finding love where you least expect it…
Behind the wheel, racing champion Zander Donavan is at the top of his game. But after too much excess in his personal life, he’s forced to step away. He needs to accomplish something all on his own—outside of his famous father’s shadow.
Getty Caster is running away from the abuse that clouds her past. She thinks she’s found the perfect escape—until she discovers a stranger in the beachside cottage she’d been promised. He’s undeniably sexy, but she’s there to heal. Alone.
Before long though, fighting with each other turns into fighting their attraction. And giving into desire sets off a chain reaction that has their pasts colliding. With an unexpected love on the line, can they overcome the fallout to build a future?
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
“He tastes like beer and mint and lust all in one, and my head is swimming and heart is pumping and holy shit, he’s kissing me. Tempting me. Awakening me.”
This was an adult contemporary romance story featuring a race car driver.
Getty was an okay character and I felt quite sorry for her and the treatment she had received from her father and husband. Zander was pretty charming, and I was glad that we got charming Zander rather than the Zander of the prologue.
The storyline in this was about a mix up where both Getty and Zander ended up having to share a house, and ending up flirting with each other. We got some sexual tension, and a couple of hot sex scenes, but the rest of the story dragged a bit for me.
The ending to this was pretty happy, if a little predictable.
