Gray Preston was born into money, but he’s built his racing empire on hard work and muscle. And now that Gray has millions of fans, his senator father sends one of his aides, Evelyn Hill, to elicit Gray’s help in garnering votes for the upcoming national election. Gray wants nothing to do with his estranged father’s campaign, but Evelyn can be pretty persuasive. She’s willing to learn about racing, and maybe even get a little dirty.

Evelyn’s number-one goal is politics, which makes working with Gray difficult, because his only passion is fast cars. As she and Gray spend time together, he teaches her about the sport he loves, and she learns a lot about the man behind the wheel. The more she learns, the more she wants him. But any desire that threatens to derail the carefully laid plans for her future is a dangerous one.

With the passion Gray and Evelyn share running hotter than either imagined, one of them is going to have to compromise, or else run the risk of losing more than their hearts.
Jaci Burton is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling, award-winning author of more than fifty books.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from One Sweet Ride (Play-by-Play #6) this book was just boring. I loved the earlier books in this series but the last two, meh. The characters had no chemistry and I just wasn't interested in their story. Still love Jaci Burton but this one just didn't do it for me.I also really missed the family dynamic that the previous books had. I do get that JB was running out of siblings/cousins but that family connection was something I really enjoyed and while Garrett is married to one of the Riley's cousins, it's just wasn't enough. The dramas are a bit contrived as well, for me! I guess I'm just looking for something a bit deeper but if you're wanting a light, sexy read, this is the book for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One Sweet Ride! ****** spoiler alert ****** I’m going to level with you and go totally superficial on this review, well part of it anyway. Gray Preston is smokin’ hot! There’s just something about a man who races cars that is incredibly sexy. Not sure if it’s the adrenaline rush or the fact that he is harnessing all that horsepower and bending it to his will, but it’s HOT! Evelyn never had a chance. I know she was sent to get Gray on board the campaign train for his dad, but the racing is what hooked me into the story. Gray doesn’t want anything to do with his father or his bid for vice president, and he tells Evelyn that while quickly escorting her out the door. But Evelyn is persistent and calls Gray’s mom in for backup. There’s no way he can say no to his mom. Gray is super-pissed Evelyn went behind is back, and lets her know he will be kicking and screaming the entire way. Evelyn is up for the challenge and will do everything possible in order to secure her job and Gray’s cooperation. However, as the two remain in close proximity, feelings start to develop. Evelyn can win the battle against Gray’s stubbornness, but will victory come at the expense of losing her heart? Something that stuck in my craw was towards the end of the book when Gray hadn’t been around but he’d encouraged Evelyn to follow her dreams and her career. Evelyn gets pissed at Gray and ends up breaking up with him because she feels he thinks she isn’t strong enough to handle her career and him. I couldn’t follow her logic. All I saw was a man understanding what’s important to a woman and encouraging her to go after it. Luckily, Carolina (Gray’s sister) was thinking the same thing I was and kicked Evelyn’s ass for it. This book is an adrenaline rush to the senses. Not only are the race scenes exciting, but the love scenes are even better! I really enjoyed the story but there were so many secondary characters I would have loved to have seen more of. Another great book from Jaci Burton!
