Review: Happy Hour (Racing the Edge #1) by Shey Stahl
Between revving engines, smoking tires, and high speeds, two friends form a vital bond in the shadows of the blaring spotlight. Sway Reins, a track owner’s only daughter, and Jameson Riley, a gritty NASCAR rookie driver, have been best friends since they were kids. Over the years, Sway becomes his safety shield during his rapid rise to the elite levels of auto racing. A night of celebrating a victory leaves Sway believing that she can convince Jameson to fall in love with her. She becomes determined to be more than just a pit lizard trolling the pits. Little does she know that this steadfast racer has his own idea of revelry. Soon their compression ratios are timed exactly right and all the reciprocating motions have led them to happy hour. As their passion revs, the inner workings of an internal combustion engine have never been so erotic. Just a taste turns into a thirst neither of them saw coming. Can she convince this rookie he can have love and his dream?
I absolutely lobed this friends turned lovers story. I loved reading about Jameson and Sway's history together and how they became to be who they are together now.
Sways character was awesome! I loved her determination to not be a pit lizard. Then her coming to know that she is definitely more than that in Jameson's eyes.
I loved how Jameson was so freaking clueless and when it finally hit him, he was shocked as well.
I do not understand racing or any of the terms at all. So, this part was a little rough for me, but that being said it did not distract me from the connection between Sway and Jameson.
And a side note--loved the names!
Overall, great read. I couldn't put it down and about got busted in a meeting reading it! Recommend it to all you romance junkies out there!
