About this book

Engineer Kristen McKenna loves to make things go fast. So when NASCAR team owner Matthew Knight offers her a job, Kristen's competitive spirit shifts into overdrive. But she has to struggle to keep her mind on her blueprints and off her dangerously appealing boss. Kristen's always been more comfortable in a lab than on a date--but suddenly both Matthew and Todd Peters, the supersexy team driver, are vying for her attention! Things heat up both on and off the track as Kristen finds herself torn between the two men. And as sparks begin to fly around the garage, she discovers that there's more to life than spoilers and engine specs. But can Kristen design a finish that gets both her team--and her heart--to Victory Lane?

Reader's Thoughts


Chick lit based on NASCAR. I enjoyed it. Light easy read about a woman engineer who joins a successful NASCAR team and the owner and driver both fall for her.


Good love story with lots of facts about Nascar. Good read.


I don't expect much from Harlequin novels and I read them when I'm in the mood for something light and breezy and quick. That said, I was disappointed with this book. It started off kind of cute, I enjoyed the lead character (Kristen) at first. She was quirky and kind of nerdy cute, but that all changed. The Lightning McQueen part at the start made me laugh. Once the romance started, the novel fell apart for me. I despised the behavior of Kristen and both of her love interests. Kristen repeatedly tells both of them she's not interested and they both force themselves on her. Todd tricks her by flying her out to him, and Matt tricks her into a "bet" on a first date (and none of this is done in a cute way, it's all very cavemanish "I want you and don't care if you don't want me back! I know you want me and I will force you to kiss me to prove it!!"). Speaking of that first date, Kristen flips out completely on Matt because he tries to do something nice for her and then does a 180 and has sex with him (on the first date). Then Kristen ends up dumping Matt and starts dating Todd. Though she thinks they're "just friends" despite everything that had happened between them a few weeks prior (where he practically forced himself on her several times). I just didn't like it at all. I've read some of her other books and they were much better, so I was surprised at how much I disliked the characters in this book.

I'm sure car-racing enthusiasts would rate this book higher, but since I'm not one, I will just say that this was an OK read for me, but I won't be reading any more of this series.


I really liked this little NASCAR romance until about 3/4 of the way through, when I realized she was going to pick the wrong guy. Not that the other guy was exactly a stellar choice, either. Still, until her amazingly bad choices when it came to the men in her life, Kristen McKenna was a pretty awesome heroine - what, with her super intellect and snarky mouth.


Brilliant and hillarious as usual~


This was a very quick read and quite a cute story!!


I don't usually read paperback romances... but a friend showed me this "Nascar library" series of romances and I was intrigued - a NASCAR romance!? I enjoyed reading this on my vacation. Main character was a strong female who's an engineer designing racecars - she has 2 guys interested in her (both very different - one is a driver; one a billionaire who owns the raceteam) and she needs to figure who she's interested in. For the type of book it is, I gave it 4 stars - I found it enjoyable.

Loved the book. could not put it down..


I hate stories with a bad/unhappy ending. I felt so horribly pitiful in the ending. It was my first Britton book and I can honestly say I do want to read the next one in the series. 3/5 stars.
