ONE SWEET RIDE
In the sixth Play-by-Play book, Burton immerses readers in a new sport — racing. But the new activity doesn’t change the series’ standard formula: one testosterone-driven male plus one independent lady on a mission equals romance. A tried-and-true subplot about feuding family members rounds out the book. What will get readers’ attention is the hero, who is as ripped as he is business savvy. While the scenes between Gray and Evelyn tend to show the softer side of erotic romance, they have some smokin’ hot encounters in some very fun places.
Gray Preston has made a name for himself on the racing circuit. A talented driver and wealthy team owner, he is a born winner. Evelyn Hill was born into poverty. She has worked her way up to being a power player in Washington and won’t let anything get in the way of her success. So when she is sent to enlist Gray’s help on a campaign, she isn’t leaving his side until he agrees. Gray doesn’t want anything to do with politics; he’s much more interested in getting involved with Evelyn. The only problem? She doesn’t mix business with pleasure — until now.
