While they had a rocky start they are all in. Knox and the rest of the team quickly become the family Avery has been missing. But a miscommunication has Knox and Avery on the outs. Can the repair the damage or will they both end up alone?
I was able to get into this story and couple much quicker than book one of the series, which has me really excited for what is to come.
Avery is pretty bada$$ being a mechanic and female race car driver. She’s super confident in her abilities and knowledge. . . but is a newbie at relationships. Knox is a real sweetie once he realizes Avery is genuine and not out to hurt LT or his friends. He was more romantic than I thought he would be, which I loved! This couple had a real spark that made for an enjoyable romance. 4 stars!

Avery Sullivan is preparing to become the queen of the drag strip. So, when the one-stop motorsports shop in town is hiring, the thrill seeker doesn’t hesitate to apply.
Knox Lee thinks his boss has made a huge mistake. A beautiful woman with as much knowledge about cars as Avery has would normally be a turn on. But he won’t be blinded by that. Avery used to work for the competition.
As though it’s not already tough enough to succeed in an industry dominated by men, Avery finds herself having to contend with the brooding fabricator. Sure, he might be drop-dead gorgeous and know how to wield a rod, but that doesn’t give him a free pass to question her skills.
Seeing her determination to reach her goal, Knox soon realizes he might have misjudged Avery. The next thing he knows, he’s working side by side with her.
And he’ll do anything to help get her back behind the wheel.
A.K. Evans is a contemporary romance author of over twenty published novels.

That might have something to do with the fact that she, along with her husband and two sons, can’t get enough of extreme sports.
Before becoming a writer, Andrea did a brief stint in the insurance and financial services industry and managed her husband’s performance automotive business. That love of extreme sports? She used to drive race cars!
When Andrea isn’t writing, she can be found homeschooling her two sons, doing yoga, snowboarding, reading, or traveling with her family. She and her husband are currently taking road trips throughout the country to visit all 50 states with their boys.
