Romance Book Review: Stick Shift
Genre: BBW/ Erotic/ Contemporary
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
As a true stock car racing fan, I was delighted to find Lissa Matthews book Stick Shift. This isn't one of the sanctioned NASCAR books, but it read as well as some of the others I've read over the past few years. There was just one main different. This one is definitely more erotic than those that Harlequin Romance puts out.
Lily loves stock car racing and when her friend asks her to come house sit while she is on a trip to Italy, Lily can't refuse, especially when he friend throws in some tickets to a race in the mix.
While at one of the pre-race days, Lily meets race car driver, Cam. Cam is instantly attracted to Lily and does a little flirting. Lily, while she thinks Cam is one handsome driver, sees him as too young for her and instantly conflicted. Cam does everything he can to change her mind though.
This book is filled with race car track action, some cars hitting the wall and lots of bedroom action. Race car fans will enjoy the track scenes. Those who like hot bedroom scenes and seeing those big beautiful woman get the younger hot sexy guys will also love this book.
An orchestra musician, a private music teacher, and a homebody, Lily’s a full-figured, quiet woman who lives a fairly simple and solitary life. Aside from music, she has one big passion: stock car racing. She’s been a fan for as long as she can remember and makes the yearly pilgrimage to Daytona as often as she can. When she’s offered a chance to get away to North Carolina and attend two weeks of races, she jumps at it. Little does she know what that chance has in store for her…
Cam Carter is one of the most successful young drivers in the top tier of the stock car racing circuit. All over the country, he’s well known to racing fans, loved by some, respected by a few, and hated by others. He’s arrogant, strong willed, and a consistent winner. What he doesn’t have is balance…until he meets a pretty, very curvaceous, and unassuming fan named Lily.
Lily fears the difference in lifestyles, ages, and personalities while Cam in turn, embraces them. Can they find a way to cross the finish line and take the checkered flag together or will the obstacles push against them until they crash and burn?
