Description from Goodreads:

Start your engines…

Eighteen-year-old Jesse Copeland learns of a local car race sponsored by his father's nemesis, Shep Bradley, and the prize money might be enough to keep his family from losing their home—if he can win.

Brooke, Shep’s daughter, is also aiming to compete, with or without her father’s approval. She’ll do whatever it takes to persuade Jesse to make her car race ready. Both are driven, both are risk-takers, and soon it’s more than engines getting fired up. Jesse tells himself their relationship is strictly business, until it isn’t.

Can two star-crossed lovers overcome a family feud as old as Ford vs. Chevy, or will the competition become too explosive for these racing hearts?

Author Bio: Laura Lascarso strives to craft stories that are honest and real with characters who must overcome great odds. Her debut novel, Counting Backwards (Athenium 2012), won the Florida Book Award gold medal for YA literature. Racing Hearts is Laura's first e-series with Leap Books. She lives in North Florida with her darling husband, two children and a menagerie of animals.

Why I'm excited

This just sounds like so much fun! Star-crossed romance and kickass cars? Vroom, vroom! I'll be waiting at the starting line, revving my reader engine waiting for this one!
