This book was so much more than a romance and I was I was here for it. Both Lacey and Sellers had demons of the past that haunted them. Their meeting brought those demons to the forefront and like a fork in the road each had to choose their paths. Sit in the past or deal with them in order to move on with their lives so that they could both reach their fullest potential. There are some hard lessons learned by both of them and it was a joy to see it all unfold. I definitely recommend this and this will definitely go on my list of re-reads.
The book is set around two main characters. Lacy McGowan is a photographer who covered the NASCAR circuit until she witnessed a tragic accident. She switched genres and now photographs weddings on the west coast. Kip Sellars is a up and coming race car driver who is trying to get the privilege of racing on the circuit despite her behavior and antics.
Lacy returns to Pittsburg to visit her good friend, Billy. During her visit she meets with Kip’s grandfather who asks her to help clean up Kip’s image. Although Lacy and Kip are instantly physically attracted to each other, they immediately butt heads. Working together seems to be impossible, but they try.
Although this book is listed as an erotic romance, I did not find much romance. The interaction between the two characters was based primarily on sex. In addition, there is a lot of swearing in this book and I found it difficult to read. It seemed whenever Lacy opened her mouth, the F-word was being used. The sex scenes were rough and not romantic at all.
Upon reading the description of this book, I thought the plot would be interesting. It would have been good, but Ms. Rose did not develop the story. Instead, she got caught up in the interaction between Lacy and Kip. In my opinion, if the plot was developed fully, readers would find this book more enjoyable.
For those readers who are interested in erotica, this book might meet their needs. I can only give Dangerous Curves 2 out of 5 stars.
I was given this ARC in return for a fair and honest review.
**'Writers are desperate people and when they stop being desperate they stop being good writers...Don't shortchange yourself by sending off work that isn't any good..'
'DANGEROUS CURVES' is a moderate tale of a professional race car driver (Sellars) who's trying to curtail her many inner demons but was forced by a caring friend who intern set her up with his best friend (Lacy) herself a professional photographer -- to try marketing Sellars because of her uniqueness and talent to attain a level of accomplishments that some of her male counterparts could not fathom.
Readers are made to have this belief that Sellars was both this extraordinary driver and athlete with good championship skills whenever she got on the race track or roadway -- and also tried defying many of those typical conventions and expectations from many naysayers. Her motto was 'it's not what she has accomplish -- it's what she overcome to accomplish it that sets her apart from everyone' Sellars life was also very complex. On the one hand, she had the fame,fortune and status in NASCAR circuit. On the other, and as is so often the case her personal life was less than ideal. While Lacy herself had many scars she was battling on a daily basis: an unhappy home life as a youth and a distressing incident of her past.
The many traumatic revelations from both main characters' past was a source of focus because it expose all their flaws,sexual fetishism,womanizing and family drama.
Overall, this was an inundated and undeniably sad story that had an okay premise but then ended up being just a terribly written book: unimpressive dialogue, strange & questionable P.O.Vs and no surefire chemistry.
When Kip Sellars was younger her first and only love was killed in a accident while Kip was driving. Since that time she hasn’t done anything to try and overcome the horror she feels she’s responsible for. But she has the talent and skills to be one of the top race car drivers in NASCAR. But she keeps making mistakes that can cost her that dream.
Lacy’s job is to try to clean up Kips image so she has that chance but when the two meet it doesn’t go as well as others had hoped.
One thing I do know from reading some of Ms Rose’s works is the fact that she does erotica very, very well. So if you want to read a books with lots of hot, steamy love scenes this is the book for you. The plot, like most of Ms Roses books appears to be a afterthought. Just a way to bring the two women together but not the main draw. So, all in all not a bad book. A nice read.
