The Chase - Erin McCarthy

Kendall Holbrook is determined to make it to the top, even with the challenge of being a woman on the male-dominated racing circuit. She doesn’t have time for romance- especially not with racing rival Evan Monroe, the man who nearly crushed her dreams years ago. Forced into meeting up with him, Kendall is experiencing all those old feelings again- and she can’t deny that they still have more than enough chemistry to set fire to the track. After getting dropped by his biggest sponsor, Evan is watching his racing season go up in flames. Now, the only replacement available is completely humiliating: a co-sponsorship for his-and-her deodorant with Kendall Holbrook- the girl who once broke his heart. Acting like Kendall doesn’t still get him all hot and bothered is bad enough, but the biggest challenge awaits him on the track- where Evan has to decide if a second chance at love is more important than making it to the finish line

The ChaseTHE CHASE – book four in the Fast Track series, and just as sweet, sexy and romantic as the last three. I thrive on this series.

This time up it was Evan and Kendall’s turn – Even in older brother to Elec whose book we read first in the series. Even is – how else can I put this without sounding like a teenager?? – Cool. He is impulsive, amazing, has a body to die for and the biggest romantic. Kendall is the first female stock car racer ever – the poor thing is living in a man’s world. She is a cute little blonde tomboy, insecure but a wild cat in the sack.

Even and Kendall has quite the history. When they were teenagers they fell hard and fast for one another. Even was all ready to propose to her when abruptly they broke up and didn’t speak for 10 years. Fast forward 10 years later and the pair are still moping around the track and holding on to old baggage. When a close friend of Kendall’s decides, enough is enough – she sets the two of them up to talk it out. Eventually the two realize that it was a case of simple miscommunication which fuels the reigniting of the old flame.

The two characters were unbelievably hot for each other. They were honestly like teenagers, a moth to a flame, a bee to honey – they couldn’t keep their hands off each other. There was outdoors sex, indoor sex, bath sex – you name it, these two nymphos were doing it.
There is of course towards to end, a stick thrown into the bunch, the bomb gets thrown – I can’t say that it was well done though.

This ‘bomb’ in particular has already been used in this series and I would have liked something a little bit more original. Also I would have liked it to have been ‘solved’ rather than left the way it was.

Dare I say that I liked The Chase better than brother Elecs book? It is a great read with everything thrown in. I was sorry to see this story come to an end. I am hanging by a tether waiting for Eve’s book and next up, Tuesdays.

Happy reading

I liked the first two books in the series. The third...not so much.
Having read your review I might give this one a try though, Like a bee to honey? There MUST be lots of chemistry. Seems like the characters aren't lacking in this department lol. Thanks for the review!
