>This is a standalone book with an HEA. Though mostly a romance, this story has a lot of Formula One racing in it and will appeal to the adrenaline junkies. Dean is a popular and talented playboy driver. Frankie is an unexpected head mechanic on his team. Frankie doesn’t like the lifestyle Dean portrays, not knowing it isn’t the lifestyle he actually leads. Dean takes a while to accept Frankie’s talents, but soon her expertise is obvious.
>Their relationship literally happens overnight, but the tension leading up to it is hot. Another member of the crew is attracted to Frankie, which causes the Alpha to come out in Dean. Dean’s son, Henri, shows Dean’s softer side.
>The romance is hot and the racing sequences are exciting. I would have liked to see the jealousy from Henri’s mom towards Frankie. This jealousy was hinted at in the hospital scene. One glaring error kept this book from getting a perfect rating. When Frankie is going into Dean’s hospital room with Henri, the book says it is Bridgette going into the room. This is a big confusing error. It is Frankie going in to the hospital room. Errors such as that pull me out of the story and take away from the story.
>I am a reviewer for Romance Authors that Rock. This story is appropriate for an adult audience. I am giving this book 4 hearts.
Frankie's always been a tomboy, more interested in playing with cars than dolls. It's led her to a career as a top mechanic in the world of Formula One racing. It's a struggle to be taken seriously in this world but her new team is a supportive bunch that treats her more like a sister. Her biggest fears though revolve around her feelings for champion driver Dean who she's always thought of as a player but through their interactions she starts seeing him in a different light. With their connection deepening her fears over being taken seriously have her holding back, much to my frustration. But when an accident befalls Dean will it be too late to admit the truth or will their relationship end before its begun? I enjoyed Frankie for the most part as she was confident when it came to her career. She knew everything about cars and wasn't afraid to talk about them. When it came to her looks and her sex appeal though she was a bit less confident as she constantly measured herself against the Barbie dolls Dean usually spent time with. She wasn't afraid to go after what she wanted nor would she deny the needs she had when it came to sex. She was an equal when it came to her and Dean's erotic encounters which made them all the hotter.
Until recently Dean was content being the playboy, but it's gotten a bit stale with the women starting to all look the same. He's wanting a challenge and meeting Frankie presents him with the biggest challenge of all. Their initial meeting shows him to be arrogant but the more time they spend together the closer they become. He lets her see the real him, the man behind the playboy persona and the man with a precious secret that he lets her in on. He's proud to have her as his girlfriend and isn't happy keeping their relationship secret which made him all the more likable. When given the opportunity he's more than happy to shout it from the rooftops that she's his. Dean's a commanding character, brash at the start but showing a charming and sweet side as their relationship progresses. Theirs is a relationship that progresses quickly but feels believable in the fast-paced world they live in.
Dean and Frankie's connection crackles from the moment they meet. The sexual tension between them is palpable with their first encounter combustible. As their relationship deepens the encounters become hotter and more erotic, especially one involving his race car. Along with these two larger than life main characters comes a small cast of secondary characters, mostly Frankie's fellow mechanics, that reflect a brotherly vibe. I was also intrigued by fellow driver Farrah who I'd love to see get his own story if more stories are told. My only quibble involves Enrique and his feelings for Frankie that were left hanging. On a whole though this was a super sexy and exhilarating thrill ride that vividly depicted all the ins and outs of the racing world. Ms. Harlem's storytelling pulled you in to this exciting world and kept you on the edge of your seat and I hope it's a world we revisit soon.
Dean Cudditch is an infamous Formula One champion who works hard and plays even harder. Frankie works in the male orientated world of Formula One and over the years, has successfully forged herself a name as being a class A mechanic working with many of the greats. Her love of the sport makes her job her life and having to constantly prove her worth means that she does that job well! When she begins working with Dean, it seems that she once again has to prove herself worthy of her role, whilst at the same time trying to convince herself that this gorgeous hunk is purely off limits. Things take off pretty quickly and Frankie prepares herself for the ride of her life!
I absolutely flippin loved this book! Despite not being a huge formula one fan, Lily not only helped me understand a bit about the sport, but made me really join in with all the excitement both on and off the track. Her attention to detail is second to none and the relationship between racing driver and mechanic certainly made my eyes pop! There's no holding back here and Lily explores every avenue with this heart warming tale of triumph, secrets, love and lust.
A little something for everyone and at the very heart, a good old fashioned romance ......go grab your copy now!!
Frankie is a woman working in a highly male dominated sport - Formula One. Signed by a top team she has to prove her worth to her team and the drivers. Frankie is working with Dean Cudditch, multi world champion, playboy party animal and drop dead gorgeous. Their first meeting is not good but the sparks between the two fly off the page from the very start!
Lily's gets the tensions of F1 just right, the story flows along nicely. The relationship between Dean & Frankie develops quickly, but in a professional sport like F1 so does life. It is what happens when you live your life in the fast lane. I was delighted to see a nice wee epilogue which ties up their story perfctly.
I do like when Lily's writes sports related books - she can get the adrenaline pumping with her words. I devoured this book in a day, but already want to re-read it.
I really, really, really loved this book - and if I were able to I would give Accelerated Passion more than the 5 stars available.
