Sexy Indy car racer Warwicke Honeybun isn’t looking for love. But when he stumbles upon a beautiful woman being abused by a fellow driver one night, he wastes no time delivering a painful message to the man abusing her. Unfortunately, the man turns up dead the next day and the woman shows up on Warwicke’s doorstep covered in blood. Warwicke’s life gets eminently more complicated as he fights to protect her while working to clear her name; knowing all the while that she’s one of his fiercest competitors on the track.
Fabiana Maricruz hasn’t had time for men since she started competing in the male oriented sport of open wheel racing. She’s worked hard to overcome her rough beginnings as a Cuban-American living on the streets of the barrio. But now, somebody wants her to walk away from the sport she loves, and apparently they’ll do anything at all to make sure she does. Fortunately for her she has the Honeybuns on her side!
I cannot say how much I loved this book! The Honeybun men have a reserved spot in my heart. After reading the last adventure I never thought Sam Cheever could outdo it but she definitely has. This was a fast and fun, thrilling, adventurous read. The story has everything you could want all in one place, adventure and romance, comedy and seriousness, thugs and gentlemen, fast cars and sexy racers. This was realistic and romantic while still keeping you on the edge of your seat from the mystery and fanning yourself from the sexual chemistry. Fabiana is a complex heroine who ends up in over her head by trying to take care of things all by herself. Warwicke is near perfect, just like all the Honeybun brothers, each in their own way. I've never been a fan of red-headed men but this hottie and his clan have me changing my mind. The couple are so wonderfully suited as their similarities and differences balance so nicely. This quick and quirky story is full of interesting secondary characters and I cannot wait to see what the rest of the brothers get themselves up to. I loved the tone, as the author has a wonderfully wry sense of humor and uses it in a fresh and fun way. If you're looking for a swift and sweet escapade this one's for you.
