As a tribute to her late journalist father, Tuesday Jones is planning a career benefit, auctioning off racing memorabilia and meet-and-greets with drivers. Ex-racing star Diesel Lange has had his own brush with death, and is determined not to waste another minute of his life- especially when he meets Tuesday. He wants nothing more than to shift their romance into high gear, but he knows she’s still grieving. Can Diesel do the one thing he could never do on the track and take it slow?


Tuesday and Diesel’s story was another mediocre book for me. First of all, I feel like the series should have ended with Evan, since they were the main characters who have been introduced in the first book. But, hey, if the series became a hit, why not add more stories to it, right?

Chemistry-wise, I think Tuesday and Diesel were great. Tuesday was this fierce, strong woman who blogged about the racing world, which she apparently inherited from her father who was a journalist himself. Diesel was this ex-racer who left a tragic accident in the past and frequently suffers from a painful reminder in his leg.

I liked Tuesday and Diesel together. Their personalities were running towards being opposites, but it was obvious how much they were in lov with each other. I liked Diesel’s conversations with his uncle. It’s weird because Johnny seemed to be this strict figure in the first book. In this book, though, he was okay, even kind of funny.

The reason why I’m giving this book a three is not because I did not like parts of it. In fact, I enjoyed the book a lot. However, there also wasn’t anything in it for me to remember after a few months. There wasn’t anything that stood out for me. Still, I think this series rocks and I’d definitely follow this until its end.
