See you at the finish line…

With the big race weeks away, eighteen-year-old Jesse Copeland struggles to keep his head in the game and his hands off his smoking hot competition. But when Brooke reveals a secret that could destroy Jesse’s family, it sends him into a tailspin of self-doubt.

Jesse must pull himself together if he hopes to have a shot at the prize money, save his home, and win the heart of the girl he loves.

Can these two competitors overcome the sins of their fathers or will a shadowed history destroy their dreams forever?

My Thoughts:

WOW! I absolutely loved book one (you can see my review of it HERE), but Laura Lascarso upped her game for book two in every possible way! There is more of everything and I found it impossible to put it down. I stayed up way too close to morning to finish it, and by the time I did, my heart was pumping and there was so much adrenaline coursing through my body, I couldn't fall asleep for a long time. If you're a fan of The Fast and the Furious movies, you should check out Racing Hearts! In this second eBook Novella installment, there are more cars that go faster than before, more secrets, more drama and the romance between Jesse and Brooke heats up like you wouldn't believe! It's still considered YA (Young Adult), but if you are normally a NA (New Adult) fan, the romance will definitely satisfy you. It's still got a "Romeo & Juliet on the race track" kind of feel to it, but OH, MY, does Laura Lascarso know how to throw a wrench into the plot! There is so much history between the two families, much of it shocking and shady, and as it comes to light, the past could affect the futures of these star-crossed lovers. All the twists and turns surely kept me on the edge of my seat, constantly checking my blind spot for surprises. I REALLY can't wait for the next installment! I need to see where this goes next!

Here's the trailer for book ONE:
