Inspired kathys reviews

This was an amazon freebie and I was in the mood for a “sweet” quick romance comedy so I started this. I wasn’t sure if it was going to be for me until I was half was through. There were several instances of mild language in the first part of the book as well as implied sexual content in the lives of the characters. I was a little worried where it was headed.

By the half was mark I was hooked and didn’t put it down after that. I’ve never followed any sort of Grand Prix racing or read any books about it so I found the setting of the story to be original. The characters were likable and despite Sergio’s playboy like beginning he won me over by the end of the book.

There are some editing errors that I caught but that didn’t distract me from enjoying the story.  And it didn’t really find it to be a romantic “comedy” as the cover states as nothing in it ever made  me laugh but it was an enjoyable contemporary romance.

4 stars
Rating: I’m rounding up to 4 Stars – Great Book

Content: About a half dozen instances of language, mostly mild. Categorized as “sweet” this one is not “squeaky clean” but it doesn’t contain much sexual content. Most of the content is implied and in the characters’ past.
