A bad boy with something to prove.
A woman with a mission.
The race of their lives.
The love of a lifetime.
I don’t think his parents expected him to live up to his name—Racer Tate—but once he felt the adrenaline rush behind the wheel, he was addicted.
He's the fastest, fiercest driver around.
Scouting new talent brings me to his doorstep...
but his smile sends me to my knees.
The sexy, mysterious Racer Tate is not the kind of man a girl like me falls for. He's secretive, reckless, elusive. But his proximity pushes me beyond reason, and his kiss....
This is our last chance to win, and he is our only hope. I'm supposed to watch him—make sure he doesn't get into trouble. But it's an impossible task. And now the one in heart wrenching, toe-curling, soul-crushing trouble is me. Because when your heart belongs to someone, their truths become your own, and their secrets become your salvation...or your curse.
He says he wants me. He says I'm the One. But he also thinks he'll break my heart, one piece at a time until it's gone.

I’m still reeling. While people approach him, he cuts a path straight to me, his gaze penetrating and target-like; making me want to bolt.
His lips do that little upward tilt they do that seems so sexy, and for a second, I feel like I’m lightheaded.
I gulp, and then feel mad at myself for acting like some idiot as fucking devil-Racer Tate reaches me, throws himself into a seat next to me, and turns to look at me expectantly with the most gorgeous grin on his face.
I don’t know what to say.
This guy has left me sort of speechless.
“So … ” I say, staring in the distance at his beat-up mustang, then at him.
“So … ” he says too, in his deep voice, his smile a little more wicked than it was two seconds ago. He glances at my mouth.
Oh god.
Why am I licking my lips?
It only made his eyes narrow and darken.
        I open my mouth to speak, failing to find words. He smells like sweat and soap and shampoo, and I feel my traitorous nipples push up to my top again. Why do they do that when he’s around?
“This is illegal,” I state.
His voice is husky from exertion, and his eyes glint with laughter. “That’s why it’s fun.”
I look away from his eyes, trying to focus and clear my head. He leans over and peers into my face, his face shadowed by the moonlight and his jaw now carrying a little scruff. “Are we in agreement?” he presses.
“No.” I glare and shake my head, meeting his cocky gaze. “You’re reckless, Racer.”
“So are you, Alana.”
“It’s just … Lana.”
His brows fly up in surprise. “And a bit of a liar too.”
I purse my lips, still glaring as my gaze goes back to his car. Girls are rubbing against it as if it were him, and I find it disgusting. Why are women always acting so slutty around race car drivers and bad boys?
“You crashed your car,” I say flippantly.
“You crashed my car,” he contradicts, amused.
I laugh, then scowl in his direction. “You crashed it more. I can’t believe you were making such a fuss about me crashing into you when it was just a little kiss—”
He leans in to peck my lips—fast but firmly. “That’s a kiss.”
I lose my breath.
My eyes wide.
He eases back, lips smiling as he comes to his feet and stretches his hand out to take me by the elbow and help me to my feet.
“Let’s get out of here.” He starts walking, leading the way.
 “And go where?”

“Anywhere I can get my hands on you.”



5 Stars from Renee!

I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, tears, secrets, and heartbreak.

Legend (Real #6)

This is Lana and Racer’s story. Lana has experienced lost. She lost her first love and believes there is not another for her. When she meets Racer she is wants him for herself. She also wants him for her families racing team. Racer love to race. His father wants him to be a fighter but he wants to race. When he meets Lana he knows she is the one for him. But when she asks him to join her families race team he is ready. To have his woman close and be able to race is all he ever wanted. But he is keeping secrets that could cost him Lana. Can he open up and reveal his secrets and still be able to have Lana. Or will one thing make him lose everything? I love the chemistry between these two. Racer is strong and silent like his father. You can feel the entire rollercoaster of emotions that these two take you on. Can Racer have a racing career and his woman with him for the future or will one crash have him losing everything?

I felt I could connect with the characters and the story was a great read. 

I highly recommend this book, this series, and this author.


5 Stars from Brianna!

Katy Evans stole my heart completely when she introduced me to incredibly amazing Remington Tate. Not many book boyfriends have lived up to his name and only a couple have passed him. Remy was so very special in so many I shouldn't have been shocked or surprised when I fell for his son just as hard... even if not a wee bit more.

Racer is a standalone novel within the Real series (book #7 to be exact) and it follows Racer and the woman who will own his heart, Lana. This book and their journey were simply everything... everything I needed it to be and just didn't know it. Their story was perfectly penned and expertly paced...taking me on the race of my life.

They may not know it yet (though they can sense it) but from the moment these two cross paths, nothing will ever be the same for Lana and Racer. Complicated. Deep. Addicting. Captivating. The feels were so real...with sizzling sparks, riveting moments, unforgettable passion, and undeniable chemistry that literally just rolled right off the pages, leaving me catching my breath and settling my fast beating heart.

I won't give you any spoilers and definitely no hints... my lips are sealed. This book and their epic love story was an I quickly devoured once the words really started going and then went back again to savour slowly.

All in all Racer was sexy, sweet, intense, suspenseful, deep and left my heart so full. This series and particularly this book are must reads by any contemporary romance lovers.

I highly recommend this book and series!
