This book is a very light read, even with the mystery and suspense thrown in, I found it very easy to read and got through it fairly quickly.

The following review is my opinion and not a paid review. I received a copy of Full Throttle from the author via Full Moon Bites Book Tours for review.

All NASCAR driver Rex Henderson wanted was to own and drive his own car. To own his own car was going to cost him a lot of money. He knew from all the mistakes that occurred last season he was going to have to win all the races and stay away from all the pretty girls. Rex never dreamed that his new head mechanic (Gail "Jimmy" James) would turn out to be a girl.

Not only does Jimmy have a hard time being accepted by Rex but her pit crew has a hard time accepting her as a mechanic. When things start happening to car #14 everyone thinks that it is all just a rookie mistake. Jimmy knows she is being blamed because she is a female. But when Jimmy gets a threatening note they begin thinking that maybe it is not a rookie mistake that it may be sabotage. Someone is trying to get Rex out of NASCAR for good or they just want Jimmy gone. NASCAR and a woman in the crew pit doesn't mix, racing is a man's game. Jimmy is determined to find out who is sabotaging car #14 to save her job and Rex.

I have to say that I have never been much of sports fan. I do on occasion watch sports on tv. But I do have a NASCAR driver though and was very excited to read Full Throttle. I honestly didn't think that I would like it very well. But guess what I loved it. I liked the suspense, the romance but what I really liked about it was the mechanical parts. I liked reading and learning about the restrictor plates and Jimmy taking the drive shaft out and putting it back in during a pit stop. I also loved finding out that they could read the temperature of the tires during the race.

I loved how this book started out and I loved how the book ended. This book starts out strong with a fierce dislike between Rex and his mechanic. It seemed like the only reason he did not like his mechanic was because she was beautiful. What starts out as a hate/hate relationship turns into love, but you know what they say "Love and hate, two sides of the same coin".

Rex almost had everything he thought he wanted within his grasp. He could see success, fame, and fortune staring him in the face. Then all of a sudden, it is gone. He had everything snatched from him quicker than a snowflake melting over an open flame. Then he has to sell his one prized possession to keep things afloat. He is determined to will everything back. He knows that he can make it happen.

Jimmy is the new head mechanic for Rex. She, yes I said she, is one of the top mechanics in the automotive industry. That is very impressive considering the automotive industry is very harsh. Jimmy, loves NASCAR, while her brothers loves Formula One. Jimmy has been hurt by love in her life. The guy told her it was either him or NASCAR. I will never understand why someone would say something so stupid. If you love someone then you love everything about them, faults and all their interest, their quirks, their passion everything. I guess with someone say that just proves they are shallow.

I admit that NASCAR is not my favorite sport. Okay you got me I am not much of a sports fan. I had rather read. I know big surprise. However, this is a very interesting, fun read. The strong characters, the interesting plot everything. Are you looking for that next great weekend read? Click on one of the above buy links because this is it!

Thanks for a great read Shawn & Evan aka TC Archer.

Auto racing, romance, mystery, and suspense go hand in hand in T. C. Archer's Full Throttle. The author lures the reader in with a charming hero and a strong, independent heroine.

Gail "Jimmy" James, an engine specialist, recently hired by Howard Motors is the first female head mechanic in NASCAR history. Working in a male dominated industry, Jimmy needs to keep her wits about her as the guys on her team play jokes on her. Jimmy's reaction to these practical jokes is realistic, drawing me to her character instantly. When bad things start happening to the racecar, Jimmy is blamed because she is a rookie and a woman. But with a singular focus, Jimmy does everything in her power to figure out what is wrong with the car and concludes that it is sabotage. While trying to figure who would want to tamper with the car, Jimmy feels torn by her growing feelings for Rex Henderson, the driver of the car. Jimmy works to keep her feelings in check because it would be very bad for her career to be involved with a driver. Rex, a sexy southerner with an accent to match, has been attracted to Jimmy since he first saw her under the hood of his car. Since he was burned by a girl the year before, Rex is surprised by his feelings for Jimmy. When Gail is threatened, Rex goes into all-out protective mode, which makes him a perfect leading man. The sexual tension between them sizzles even when their romance takes a back seat to the search for the saboteur.

Vivid details, well-researched, and well-executed racing scenes provide edge-of-your-seat action, adding depth to this story. Having watched few NASCAR races on television, I did not feel overwhelmed or lost by the technical jargon used by the characters in the story.
