TO THE LIMIT
Britton's community of NASCAR
professionals and enthusiasts is
brimming with detailed insight into
the world of competitive racing,
making this an interesting opportunity
to learn about this popular sport.
But while the premise is strong,
some of the key emotional scenes
are treated in summary form, which lessens the reader's attachment to
the characters and their romance.
Engineer Kristen McKenna jumps at the chance to pursue her lifelong dream of designing race cars, but she has no idea what awaits her. Sure, she's used to being underestimated as a woman engineer in a male-dominated field, but she isn't accustomed to having her powerful boss and the team's sexy driver both vying for her affections. She finds herself in the tough spot of having to confront her past mistakes and choose between two very different men. (HQN, Mar., 384 pp., $6.99)
