Synopsis (from Goodreads):
Easing into the turns…
As one of only two girls on the tween racing circuit, Shawn Hamby has always run with a fast crowd. But now at thirty-two, she doesn’t need to prove anything to anyone. And she definitely doesn’t need a man bossing her around off of the track…
Putting the pedal to the metal…
But after a silly girls’ night at a fetish club, Shawn can’t get Rhett Ford out of her mind. He’s younger than her, and he’s her best friend’s brother-in-law, which should be red flags. Rhett is looking for someone to lead in bed, but he can’t imagine that Shawn would ever submit to him. Boldly surrendering is more her style. And with Rhett behind the wheel, it’s going to be one wild ride…
Recommended if you enjoy: sassy tomboys, Alpha males, romances centered around sports, a little kink in your smex
I started reading the Fast Track series when it was first released and I enjoyed the first 5 books so very much. The last book was kind of a dud for me but every dog has it’s day right? I wasn’t even aware that the next book had been released yet until I was randomly going through my kindle store. It’s safe to say that anything “Fast Track” is an auto-buy for me.
The main characters in Full Throttle, Shawn and Rhett, both know what they want out of life and they aren’t going to BS anyone in order to get it. Shawn is a track owner who just got handed a hefty blow in her grandfather’s will that lands her in a pickle. Rhett is a younger gentleman who is looking for the ONE woman in the whole world who can handle his commanding behavior all while being crew member for his sister-in-law AND a dirt track racer. When these two meet by chance in a fetish club it leads to good things happening for both of them.
There is a good chunk of humor in this book and I really enjoyed that very much. Shawn’s friends bring it in bushel baskets. Rhett and his clan bring it in the truckload.
The only thing that bothered me about the book was some of Rhett’s dominating characteristics. He said somethings in a public setting a couple of times that I felt shouldn’t have been brought up. While he is pretty crude at times, he seems to have his crap together for how young he is.
Overall, this isn’t my favorite book in the series by any means but it is still a fun read. With a bunch of humor and some kink to go with the smex. Even though it had some hiccups (Rhett) it kept me engaged and I finished it in record time too.
