Andi is a motor mechanic working for man whore F1 driver Carrick Ryan. Her dad - also an F1 driver - died on the track so she's determined never to date a driver so as to avoid going through what her mum went through. The set up made for some good tension and jealous fuelled angst as Andi tries to hold out in the face of his relentless flirting. And Carrick would be impossible for anyone to resist for long with his smouldering eyes and his swaggering confidence. Meanwhile they become friends, leading to some warm and fuzzy scenes as they spend time together and really get to know one another.
Inevitably, she finally caves and all of that pent up lust generated some great steamy smut, but it's not long before the fear creeps in again. And that was where my aggravation came in, for this took us into a plot loop where she gives in then pushes him away. The first time I was sad for her, but I lost sympathy with her each time she did it to the point that I wanted better for Carrick.
Although I couldn't say this is my favourite book by this author, it kept me reading avidly and got me all worked up, so it was a pretty good read overall. I Loved that it was a standalone too.
Carrick Ryan is a Formula One racer and a ladies man! Who pretty much beds anything with a vagina!!!! Andressa Amaro is a mechanic. Never lets anyone in, she build up a wall to protect herself from the devastation of her past.
It was a lovely love Story. Andressa had some great qualities, she was very sassy and independent. I did find her annoying at times however, her constant mind changing over wanting to be with Carrick/loving Carrick/running away/staying was sometimes a pain! I felt like screaming and wanted to scream at Andressa to just man up and not be a fool. Believe in herself!!!!
Carrick was a great character. Very sexy ;)
Ending was perfect for me :)
Would recommend this to anyone who loves a good love story/romance oh and who loves cars! :P
I would compare this book to others such as The Pact and The Offer by Karina Halle.
Carrick Ryan is a playboy from Ireland, he’s super talented and champion star of the formula one racing scene. Racing is in his blood, it’s who he is and it makes him as sexy as sin. He’s handsome and a womanizer, a scintillating mix that makes for a sexilicious hero, one that I couldn't help falling in love with.
Andressa or Andi as she's known has experienced devastation in her life, devastation that's left t's mark. It led her into the life of a mechanic and gave her a realization of the type of man she definitely does not want in her life. Her life plan is to avoid potential devastation at all costs.
Issues burn in their hearts and mind, issues that have evolved from deep rooted events in their past.... issues that provide the protagonists with the perfect motivation for all aspects of the story, including the authentic push and pull of the inner turmoil, the reasons why.
Andressa makes decisions based on what she thinks she needs, decisions that have consequences in terms of her emotions and ultimately that of the readers. She’s ruled by fear, it controls her, consumes her thoughts... I was moved to tears at times, it was emotional and angsty, they both made mistakes with the way they behaved but that made them human.... more real. They frustrate each other, at times she frustrated me, but she had her reasons and completely credible motivation. I felt her inner struggle... I wanted to reach into the story and talk to the heroine, tell her my thoughts, give advice and be her friend.
Carrick and Andressa develop a wonderful friendship. I love their banter, the ironic humour and his cheeky chappy approach to attracting her. There’s oodles of intense sexual chemistry between them. There were parts so hot, I tingled in all the right places, it's absolutely delicious and sexy and packed with lovely HOTNESS!
I love Samantha Towle's writing style, the cosmopolitan characters she brings to the table and her authentic British isms because, of course, she's flying the flag for the UK, but nothing which is overt or too much, the tone is perfect.
The additional characters each add a layer to the feel and development of the story, showcasing the protagonist's personalities through their interactions. Especially Petra who perfectly mirrored my feelings about the heroine; she becomes a close friend, is the voice of reason and lessened my legitimate frustration with her. Andressa's mother, though not a huge part of the entire story, is in essence a pivotal element. A particular scene between mother and daughter moved me to tears with its emotionally charged poignancy.
The execution of this story is set to perfection, the way it’s all laid out, the introduction between the hero and heroine, the premise, the anticipation of secrets being revealed. It completely captured my attention from the very beginning and did not let me go until the very last page. I laughed, I cried, I swooned. I spent a large proportion of my reading time smiling with the warm fuzzy book feels. This story, these characters... ♥ ♥ ♥ I just LOVED every single minute of the angst, the drama, the sexiness; the whole feel of it just worked perfectly for me.
If you‘re a romance lover, an angst addict, steam devourer and a reader who loves characters with depth, heart and soul you will fall in love with Carrick and Andressa's story.
