32 is not old!
on May 1, 2012
I struggled to get into this book. Not that it started out slow, but more that I was annoyed by the main character's (Tamara's) actions and self-deprecation. She kept referring to herself as being too old, and then it gets mentioned that she's 32?! That's OLD?! Ok, ok, she's had 2 kids, but still 32 is not anything close to being old. The author should have made her 42 if that card is going to keep being played (and even that's not all that old). It's hard to see how a man could fall in love with someone who is so down on herself so often and who put up such a fight all the time. But, said man, Elec, is very likable and has a much better attitude than Tamara does most of the time. He definitely makes up for her in the book. There are some really steamy sex scenes, and the book finishes a lot stronger once Tamara gets over some of her ridiculous insecurities. The scenes with Elec and Tamara's kids are great. Made me fall a bit in love with him. I'm not really into race-car driving, so that part of the book didn't do much for me, but I could see how a NASCAR/car racing fan would love this series.
