Format: Mass Market Paperback
Nancy Warren creates two likable characters from opposite ends of the adrenaline poles to create an irresistible, fun romance.

NASCAR driver and one of People's 50 Hottest Bachelors, Dylan Hargreave can hold his own while hurling his car around a race track at 180 mph but can't seem to navigate the personal relationships in his life, especially his immature ex-wife who is convinced they belong together.

Kendall Clarke, an award-winning actuary, prefers to blend in with her background, calculating the risks for each step she takes in life; yet, she could never have predicted that she would be dumped by her "safe risk" fiancé after he gets a fellow colleague pregnant.

Accidentally locked out of her hotel room in only her Victoria Secret underwear, a chance meeting with Dylan Hargreave who mistakes her for the actress hired to act as his date, is the beginning of a charming romance very convincingly played out in the world of NASCAR.

HASH(0x9aba08ac) out of 5 stars very enjoyable and entertaining Aug. 8 2009

Yes, I only read it because it was offered free thru my kindle. That confession out of the way I have to also confess how much I enjoyed reading this. I have no interest in Nascar, so at first I considered not reading it, but it grabbed me. I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed reading this. I like sexiness as a general rule, and this had almost no mention of sex. I was thoroughly entertained. So if you enjoy light reading on occasion then go for this. I have no criticisms or downsides, just fun reading. Now I might read some other Nascar related books. Good job whoever it was to offer this for free, you got a new reader for this kind of book.

HASH(0x9aba84c8) out of 5 stars Satisfying read April 11 2009

I was surprised by how much I liked this book.

Kendal Clarke has had one hell of a bad day. On what was supposed to be the best night of her life, she is dumped and eventually locked out of her hotel room half-dressed. Dylan Hargreave mistakes her for the actress he's hired to play his girlfriend for the night. This handsome - "sexiest man of the year" - but spoiled Nascar driver needs to be taken down a peg and meet a down-to-earth girl. One night to escape their separate realities turns into a great friendship that lasts much longer.

There are so many books out there that revolve around mistaken identity. 'Speed Dating' does not. For the majority of the book, hero and heroine call each other by the RIGHT name. The story flowed well and it moved quick enough so that I did not feel the need to skim between dialogues.

My only problem - and the reason I did not give it 5 stars - was one part of the book. Towards the end there is a section I truly hated. If I was the heroine I would have taken a peice out of the hero and then left him. The ending was not my favorite but it was satisfying enough.

If you have a kindle then this is definitely worth reading because right now it's free.

HASH(0x9aba0e04) out of 5 stars Where is the story? Aug. 14 2011
By Meerkat - Published on

I have never read any of the NASCAR themed titles before, so when I saw this one being offered for free, I thought I'd give it a try. Perhaps there are NASCAR titles that are entertaining, but this is not one of them. There is no discernable plot, the characters are one dimensional, the dialogue is weak, and there is no conflict to speak of. There are a few mentions of the heros family not approving of his chosen career and his strained relationship with his what? The reader is supposed to believe the hero is a charismatic, intelligent man who is passionate about his career. Unfortunately, his actions toward his ex-wife negate that entire premise. The actions he takes where his ex-wife is concerned make him seem like a spineless, wishy-washy idiot. As a reader, I enjoy a lot of different traits in the male leads of romantic stories. There is nothing appealing about stupidity.

As to this story being classified as a NASCAR story....I don't see how. Other than a few mentions of being at races, there aren't many qualities in the hero or any of his supposed NASCAR friends that make them any different than any other regular Joe on the street. The author makes mention of people asking for the hero's autograph, mentions pit crews a couple of times, and how he likes to give his trademark war whoop. This guy could have worked at Jiffy Lube for all the excitement of his personality. There was no strength in his character that would lead the reader he would have a strong competitive spirit in tiddley-winks, let alone NASCAR.

And the heroine? Although her career was in a transition phase, I found nothing admirable about her. She goes from being an educated career woman to a NASCAR bleacher bunny? As a reader, I'm supposed to empathize with someone who is content to be a hanger on? She goes from having self confidence issues to essentially having no identity of her own. What is there to admire about that? I know I may sound unduly harsh, but I am very happy this title was free. Other people enjoyed it and I'm happy for them, but I did not. Free or not, it was not worth the hour and half it took me to read it.

I only finished this book because I'm stubborn and kept hoping things would get better. Unfortunately, they never did and I just lost two hours of my life.

Dylan and Kendall were annoyingly stupid and had zero chemistry together. He spent the whole book as a pawn to his ex-wife's demands, to the point that he just let her sit on his lap and kiss him passionately, all the while finding nothing wrong with it - and that happened very close to the end of the book, not at the beginning or even at the middle of it! Kendall wasn't exactly a doormat but she was just too passive and forgiving. At one point, I really thought she should dump Dylan and hook up with his ex-wife's new husband because they would make a better match. If I cared, I'd still be wondering how I was supposed to believe Dylan and Kendall's HEA; as I don't, I'll just wish them luck and forget I've ever met them.

The only saving grace here was the fact that I didn't pay a cent for this book, since this was one of the freebies that Harlequin gave away in celebration of its 60th Anniversary. Other than that, this was a complete waste of my time.
