Racing cars is in Kerri Hart's blood--literally, since it's the family business. But Hart Racing is in dire financial straits, and as the only female rookie driver, Kerri's sponsorship offers always tend to be of the unzipped racing-suit variety. It's a message she'd rather not sell to her young fans. But how can she afford not to?

Ranger Colt knows how to make a woman's heart race. But when his voice pops up on Kerri's headset--while she's in mid-tailspin--she's in no mood for his charms. Colt Hardware now has a significant stake in the Hart family business, and Kerri has no choice but to work with him. But when her ex-boyfriend makes a very public, tabloid-fodder scene that threatens to tarnish her image, it's Ranger who comes to the rescue. Pretending to be engaged to generate some good publicity seems like a good plan. In fact, it works--all too well. What begins as a ruse is revving up to feel a whole lot like the real thing. Will Kerri and Ranger's fake-lationship take a wild turn. . .and lead them toward the finish?

Kassiah: I think this is the first book by Audra North that I’ve read, but it definitely won’t be the last. I really love the whole “Let’s pretend to be engaged/in a relationship for whatever reason and eventually realize we’re perfect for each other” trope. And this story has a perfect spin on it because it’s pretty much taken every other book you’ve read with this trope and flipped it around. Rookie racecar driver Kerri Hart’s family business needs some capital. It’s supplied by the sexy Ranger Colt’s family’s business. After Kerri’s ex stirs up trouble for her, Ranger offers to step in and pretend to be her fiancé. Of course you know what happens. Kerri and Ranger can’t keep their hands off each other and soon their fake relationship becomes all too real.

This story was fast paced and fun. Kerri’s sassy personality combined with Ranger’s sexy confidence made for some off-the-charts chemistry. I loved them and loved the way their relationship developed. They respected each other, and I found that refreshing. I also enjoyed how dedicated they both were to their families. The racecar setting was realistic and just plain fun. I can’t wait to read more from this series!

Strong characters, chemistry for days, and a fun storyline made In the Fast Lane a fabulous read.
