Love shifts into high gear in the first Fast Track novel.
The last place widowed single mother Tamara Briggs wanted to find a man was at the racetrack. Been there, done that. But rookie driver Elec Monroe sure does get her heart racing.

After losing her husband to a stock car accident two years ago, Tamara Riggs is a single mother and widow at the age of 32. She is just getting back into the dating scene when she meets a young rookie driver, Elec. Not really wanting to get involved with another race car driver, Tamara is convinced that keeping it light and casual is the only way to go, unfortunately that gets harder and harder to do.
I loved this book and I think it is going to be an awesome series. Erin McCarthy cracks me up and she had me laughing out loud throughout this book. Tamara's friend Suzanne was a laugh riot and her outspoken and blunt ways quickly won me over. Erin McCarthy books are always extremely fun, humorous and a whole lot sexy. This one was no exception; I loved it from start to finish.
Mixed in with all the sizzle and humor is a lot of emotion and depth. Tamara has a lot of reservations about herself and dating after all these years and is concerned about doing... read more
32 is not old!
By BookcaseLaura "Laura" - May 1, 2012
I struggled to get into this book. Not that it started out slow, but more that I was annoyed by the main character's (Tamara's) actions and self-deprecation. She kept referring to herself as being too old, and then it gets mentioned that she's 32?! That's OLD?! Ok, ok, she's had 2 kids, but still 32 is not anything close to being old. The author should have made her 42 if that card is going to keep being played (and even that's not all that old). It's hard to see how a man could fall in love with someone who is so down on herself so often and who put up such a fight all the time. But, said man, Elec, is very likable and has a much better attitude than Tamara does most of the time. He definitely makes up for her in the book. There are some really steamy sex scenes, and the book finishes a lot stronger once Tamara gets over some of her ridiculous insecurities. The scenes with Elec and Tamara's kids are great. Made me fall a bit in love with him. I'm not really into race-car driving, so... read more
humorous contemporary romance
By Harriet Klausner - November 4, 2008
Widow Professor Tamara Briggs raises her two children in quiet safe environs. After her husband died in a fiery NASCAR accident, she vowed to keep her kids safe and her heart too.
Driver Elec Monroe has had his fill of groupies. Instead he wants Tamara even if she is a few years older than him and he even likes her two kids. He scores with her in the tryst of a lifetime, but she obstinately refuses his efforts to shift their relationship beyond a one night stand into first gear as he is a dreaded driver like her children's late dad. He begins a campaign that NASCAR would love as a victory to him is winning Tamara's heart permanently.
The opening line by Tamara's friend Suzanne sets the stage of an engaging often humorous contemporary romance when she says Tamara's boyfriend anthropology Professor Geoffrey Ayers has less testosterone than a teenage girl. The story line accelerates from that terrific observation and never slows down as Elec tries to keep up... read more
