What happens when my brother’s rival becomes my secret crush?

Noah Slade is a Formula 1 legend in the making.

Focused. Unapproachable. Ruthless on and off the track.

A man with walls higher than the Grand Canyon.

And my brother’s new teammate.

I want more of the prince who disguises himself as the villain.

But while I crave a happy ending, he wants to destroy his.

Maya Alatorre is a forbidden temptation.

An ambitious post-grad I should stay far away from.

And chaos wrapped with a bow.

We’re a ticking time bomb, about one wrong move away from exploding.

I want to trip the wire, detonating together in passion and pain.

Because in the end, all’s fair in lust and war.

My first ever book by Lauren Asher and I can’t wait to read more. 

As an F1 fan, I can’t tell you how much I appreciated this book. I started getting into F1 in 2020, thanks to “Drive To Survive“ on Netflix, you should definitely watch it. Ever since finishing that series and starting to actually watch F1 races, I’ve been dying to read an F1 related romance. I searched far and wide and at first couldn’t find anything. But thanks to Brit from My Little Book Nook and Jos from Sportschicreads, I finally found what I was looking for. It is very apparent from the beginning that Asher is very knowledgeable on F1! Since I don’t typically read Sports romance or watch sports in general, I loved understanding and reading about something sports related that I actually understood. I especially loved seeing all of the behind the scenes action and how the book wasn’t totally focused around F1. Maya and Noah really captured my heart. From the beginning I thought these two were pretty unlikely to get together and didn’t really see the spark at first, but the deeper I got into the book, the more apparent their attraction and want for one another really came to life. This was definitely a slow burn and made me work and want to read until the end to see what happened. At times I did think it was a little cheesy and in some parts fell flat for me. I definitely think it could’ve been developed a little bit more, but overall, I enjoyed the story and I thought this was a great debut novel and can’t wait to read the rest of the series!
