Publication Date: September 28th, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Racer, an all-new standalone in the Real Series from New York Times bestselling author Katy Evans is LIVE!
A bad boy with something to prove.
A woman with a mission.
The race of their lives.
The love of a lifetime.
I don’t think his parents expected him to live up to his name—Racer Tate—but once he felt the adrenaline rush behind the wheel, he was addicted.
He’s the fastest, fiercest driver around.
Scouting new talent brings me to his doorstep…
but his smile sends me to my knees.
The sexy, mysterious Racer Tate is not the kind of man a girl like me falls for. He’s secretive, reckless, elusive. But his proximity pushes me beyond reason, and his kiss….
This is our last chance to win, and he is our only hope. I’m supposed to watch him—make sure he doesn’t get into trouble. But it’s an impossible task. And now the one in heart wrenching, toe-curling, soul-crushing trouble is me. Because when your heart belongs to someone, their truths become your own, and their secrets become your salvation…or your curse.
He says he wants me. He says I’m the One. But he also thinks he’ll break my heart, one piece at a time until it’s gone.
Steph’s 4.5 Blush Review
Fans of Katy Evans will not be disappointed! This standalone book is part of the Real series. It features Remy & Brooke’s son, Racer. Who can forget the amazing Remy, famous underground MMA fighter? One of my top book boyfriends! If you have read Real you will go nuts! But, if you have not you can still enjoy Racer without reading Real.
OMG! Racer is so much like his dad. He is loyal, cocky, and confident. He loves fiercely and is protective of those he loves. Racer is a complex guy. He has a lot of issues to deal with. But he is so much more! Sweet and loving and yet dominant and alpha.
“Tell me it can happen for me like it did for you. That I can find someone to get me. To take me, as is.”
But sometimes everything is not as it seems:
“Just be real with her.”
“I don’t think girls want real, I don’t think she can take the real me.”
Lana is on a mission, one that she cannot fail. She is part of HW Formula One Racing Team. The dream of winning must become a reality. Her dad is not well and Lana will do anything to see his dream through. Together with her brothers they trying for success. Lana leaves to scout a new driver when she discovers Racer, an illegal street car driver who is popular and passionate about racing.
All I know is this guy is not just a star, he’s a comet, someone with rare talent that is near impossible to find. Sometimes there are drivers that when you watch them drive, you know they are destined for greatness.
The writing is amazing! The flow smooth. The buildup and sexual tension between Racer and Lana is hot. It is all here for the taking. The love, the agony, the fear, the competition, the testosterone, the good and the bad. There are also cameos by many of the characters that we have loved in the Real series and also a lot of secondary characters whose story I would love to read!
So many feels! Loved this book and hope for more!
I’m still reeling. While people approach him, he cuts a path straight to me, his gaze penetrating and target-like; making me want to bolt.
His lips do that little upward tilt they do that seems so sexy, and for a second, I feel like I’m lightheaded.
I gulp, and then feel mad at myself for acting like some idiot as fucking devil-Racer Tate reaches me, throws himself into a seat next to me, and turns to look at me expectantly with the most gorgeous grin on his face.
I don’t know what to say.
This guy has left me sort of speechless.
“So … ” I say, staring in the distance at his beat-up mustang, then at him.
“So … ” he says too, in his deep voice, his smile a little more wicked than it was two seconds ago. He glances at my mouth.
Why am I licking my lips?
It only made his eyes narrow and darken.
I open my mouth to speak, failing to find words. He smells like sweat and soap and shampoo, and I feel my traitorous nipples push up to my top again. Why do they do that when he’s around?
“This is illegal,” I state.
His voice is husky from exertion, and his eyes glint with laughter. “That’s why it’s fun.”
I look away from his eyes, trying to focus and clear my head. He leans over and peers into my face, his face shadowed by the moonlight and his jaw now carrying a little scruff. “Are we in agreement?” he presses.
“No.” I glare and shake my head, meeting his cocky gaze. “You’re reckless, Racer.”
“So are you, Alana.”
“It’s just … Lana.”
His brows fly up in surprise. “And a bit of a liar too.”
I purse my lips, still glaring as my gaze goes back to his car. Girls are rubbing against it as if it were him, and I find it disgusting. Why are women always acting so slutty around race car drivers and bad boys?
“You crashed your car,” I say flippantly.
“You crashed my car,” he contradicts, amused.
I laugh, then scowl in his direction. “You crashed it more. I can’t believe you were making such a fuss about me crashing into you when it was just a little kiss—”
He leans in to peck my lips—fast but firmly. “That’s a kiss.”
I lose my breath.
My eyes wide.
He eases back, lips smiling as he comes to his feet and stretches his hand out to take me by the elbow and help me to my feet.
“Let’s get out of here.” He starts walking, leading the way.
“And go where?”
“Anywhere I can get my hands on you.”
