Rex intends to own and drive his own car, but that will cost him millions up front. Last season was a disaster, thanks to a nasty break up, but it taught him a lesson and helped sharpen his focus on what he needed to do: Win every race. And stay away from pretty girls. The last thing he needed was to learn that his new head mechanic, Jimmy James, was the gorgeous redhead pin-up walking around his pit like it was some kind of dance floor.
Gail "Jimmy" James is the first female NASCAR mechanic. As if competing in a man's world isn't tough enough, her bombshell figure bellies her genius IQ, and the pit is no place for either. Nothing Jimmy knew about Rex Henderson the driver prepared her for Rex Henderson the man. But Jimmy has no time to dwell on her feelings as strange mechanical problems curse Rex's car. Whether sabotage or her own mistakes, Jimmy must stay one step ahead of trouble if she's going to keep her job, and keep her driver alive...
Such a nice easy read. I really liked the characters. Rex with his sexy southern drawl and Gail "Jimmy" James was a credit to women everywhere. Being from the South myself, I really enjoyed the NASCAR theme. Don't worry, if you don't like NASCAR, it's not all racing. You have a great mystery that I was trying to figure out through the whole book and never would have guessed that it played out the way it did! This book also offers some romance and steam. The secondary characters were brought to life as well. Duff was one of my favorites. I saw him as the father figure of the team. And Gail's brother John, I found myself wanting more of him in this book! This is my first TC Archer book and I loved their writing style! The words flowed well and I was able to picture every scene. I will be sure to read more from TC Archer!
