I have no intention of losing my girl a second time…
I can fake it with the best of them. At the top of my game as a Moto Grand Prix racer, I'm used to the entire world watching me. But the truth is, beneath this polished smile, I'm hurting—physically and emotionally. Longing for my family and the girl I left behind, I need a break from the Moto Grand Prix world. A chance to heal.
So the moment I'm free from the press circuit, I bolt home for some R&R—determined to win back Taryn Ledell's heart if it's the last thing I do. Problem is: she's got plans of her own. As a World Superbike racer, she's on the brink of making it big. It's going to take all the sweet-talking charm I've got to convince the girl of my dreams that she can have everything she wants if she's willing to be fearless.
Golding (Order Up) launches her Moto Grand Prix series with a satisfying second-chance romance between two motorcycle racers. Fresh off a championship win in Valencia, Spain, Superbike racer Billy King eagerly returns to Memphis, Tenn., to beg forgiveness from his ex-girlfriend, Taryn Ledell, a fellow Superbike star and barrel racer. But Taryn's not ready to hear his apology. In flashbacks to their early courtship, Golding makes a strong case for Billy and Taryn's chemistry showing readers that Taryn was initially drawn to Billy's humility and chivalry and deliciously draws out the tension leading up to their mysterious, relationship-ending fight. Meanwhile in the present, Taryn realizes that Billy is injured and hiding the severity of the issue from his strict manager, and harangues him into letting her monitor his healing. The colorful supporting cast adds complexity and hints at more good things from the series to come. Though the timeline can become a bit convoluted, the crisp prose, steamy sex scenes, and swift plotting combine into a diverting love story. Readers will look forward to the next in the series.
