Kendall Holbrook is determined to make it to the top, even with the challenge of being a woman on the male-dominated racing circuit. She doesn't have time for romance-especially not with racing rival Evan Monroe, the man who nearly crushed her dream years ago. Tricked into meeting him, Kendall is experiencing all those old feelings again-and she can't deny that they still have enough chemistry to set fire to the track.
I just plain liked this book! Second chance at love - damn good story and the sex was HAWT!!! Two people that flat out love each other; can't get enough of one another; even time doesn't diminish their love.
I loved the writing in THE CHASE. It didn't drag, there was never a dull moment, and the snappy dialogue is awesome! For instance, this little scene with Kendall and her mother during the Easter dinner:
"But you're denying yourself so much, sweetheart. I mean, you haven't even had a boyfriend in several years. Think of all you're missing."
Wanting to bring a halt to the conversation, Kendall hit on a perfect way to appall her mother, especially since every adult family member was seated around the table. "Don't worry, I'm still having sex. I don't need a boyfriend to do that."
Her brother-in-law guffawed. Her father set his fork down with a clank. Her sisters both looked amused.
And her mother looked like horns had shot out of Kendall's head. "Kendall! Good Lord, I can't believe you said that in front of the baby."
Little Jocelyn was six months old and didn't even know where her nose was. Kendall doubted she was being potentially scarred or morally compromised.
Evan and Kendall are perfect together. And you don't need to know a thing about racing or NASCAR to read and ENJOY this book. Even the wrench Ms. McCarthy throws in near the end couldn't sway me from liking this story. After all, those types of things do tend to happen.
Now, I'm anxiously awaiting the arrival of Diesel Lange in SLOW RIDE.
