RACER by Katy Evans
Publication Date: September 28th, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance
A bad boy with something to prove.
A woman with a mission.
The race of their lives.
The love of a lifetime.
I don’t think his parents expected him to live up to his name—Racer Tate—but once he felt the adrenaline rush behind the wheel, he was addicted.
He’s the fastest, fiercest driver around.
Scouting new talent brings me to his doorstep…
but his smile sends me to my knees.
The sexy, mysterious Racer Tate is not the kind of man a girl like me falls for. He’s secretive, reckless, elusive. But his proximity pushes me beyond reason, and his kiss….
This is our last chance to win, and he is our only hope. I’m supposed to watch him—make sure he doesn’t get into trouble. But it’s an impossible task. And now the one in heart wrenching, toe-curling, soul-crushing trouble is me. Because when your heart belongs to someone, their truths become your own, and their secrets become your salvation…or your curse.
He says he wants me. He says I’m the One. But he also thinks he’ll break my heart, one piece at a time until it’s gone.
I’m still reeling. While people approach him, he cuts a path straight to me, his gaze penetrating and target-like; making me want to bolt.
His lips do that little upward tilt they do that seems so sexy, and for a second, I feel like I’m lightheaded.
I gulp, and then feel mad at myself for acting like some idiot as fucking devil-Racer Tate reaches me, throws himself into a seat next to me, and turns to look at me expectantly with the most gorgeous grin on his face.
I don’t know what to say.
This guy has left me sort of speechless.
“So … ” I say, staring in the distance at his beat-up mustang, then at him.
“So … ” he says too, in his deep voice, his smile a little more wicked than it was two seconds ago. He glances at my mouth.
Why am I licking my lips?
It only made his eyes narrow and darken.
I open my mouth to speak, failing to find words. He smells like sweat and soap and shampoo, and I feel my traitorous nipples push up to my top again. Why do they do that when he’s around?
“This is illegal,” I state.
His voice is husky from exertion, and his eyes glint with laughter. “That’s why it’s fun.”
I look away from his eyes, trying to focus and clear my head. He leans over and peers into my face, his face shadowed by the moonlight and his jaw now carrying a little scruff. “Are we in agreement?” he presses.
“No.” I glare and shake my head, meeting his cocky gaze. “You’re reckless, Racer.”
“So are you, Alana.”
“It’s just … Lana.”
His brows fly up in surprise. “And a bit of a liar too.”
I purse my lips, still glaring as my gaze goes back to his car. Girls are rubbing against it as if it were him, and I find it disgusting. Why are women always acting so slutty around race car drivers and bad boys?
“You crashed your car,” I say flippantly.
“You crashed my car,” he contradicts, amused.
I laugh, then scowl in his direction. “You crashed it more. I can’t believe you were making such a fuss about me crashing into you when it was just a little kiss—”
He leans in to peck my lips—fast but firmly. “That’s a kiss.”
I lose my breath.
My eyes wide.
He eases back, lips smiling as he comes to his feet and stretches his hand out to take me by the elbow and help me to my feet.
“Let’s get out of here.” He starts walking, leading the way.
“And go where?”
“Anywhere I can get my hands on you.”

I’ve been revving my engine in anticipation since Katy first dropped the news that Racer, son of the delicious Remmington Tate, would be getting his own story. I loved Remy’s focus and intensity and I couldn’t wait to see if Racer would be a chip of the old block.
Outside of his family Racer’s greatest love is street racing. He’s a thrill seeker, and it doesn’t get much better than the speed and the women who are all to eager to help him celebrate his wins. Although his father would love to see him in the ring, it’s street racing that remains his passion, until that is, Lana crashes into his world both figuratively and literally.
For Lana Formula One is more than a sport. Her family are financially and emotionally invested and breathe everything F1. Their HW Racing Team’s glory days are becoming a thing of the past and she’s desperate to find a driver who can help them reclaim the top spot. During her search she collides with the whirlwind that is Racer Tate. He’s a risk and a rookie, but he’s also just the thing she and her family need.
Never one to back down from a challenge Racer wants the trophy and the girl. He’s attracted to Lana’s drive and determination, and she is enthralled by his energy and intensity. She’s resolved to keeping their relationship purely professional, but with their undeniable chemistry, it becomes impossible to keep her resolve on track.
Although I enjoyed the chase, I couldn’t help but get side tracked by moments of what I perceived to be awkward dialogue. And while I’m really nit picking given Lana’s experiences I found her to be rather naive. That said beside the lull towards the end, it really was a strong finish as can be expected from a Tate.
