A bad boy with something to prove.
A woman with a mission.
The race of their lives.
The love of a lifetime.
I don’t think his parents expected him to live up to his name—Racer Tate—but once he felt the adrenaline rush behind the wheel, he was addicted.
He's the fastest, fiercest driver around.
Scouting new talent brings me to his doorstep...
but his smile sends me to my knees.
The sexy, mysterious Racer Tate is not the kind of man a girl like me falls for. He's secretive, reckless, elusive. But his proximity pushes me beyond reason, and his kiss....
This is our last chance to win, and he is our only hope. I'm supposed to watch him—make sure he doesn't get into trouble. But it's an impossible task. And now the one in heart wrenching, toe-curling, soul-crushing trouble is me. Because when your heart belongs to someone, their truths become your own, and their secrets become your salvation...or your curse.
He says he wants me. He says I'm the One. But he also thinks he'll break my heart, one piece at a time until it's gone.


I’m still reeling. While people approach him, he cuts a path straight to me, his gaze penetrating and target-like; making me want to bolt. His lips do that little upward tilt they do that seems so sexy, and for a second, I feel like I’m lightheaded. I gulp, and then feel mad at myself for acting like some idiot as fucking devil-Racer Tate reaches me, throws himself into a seat next to me, and turns to look at me expectantly with the most gorgeous grin on his face. I don’t know what to say. This guy has left me sort of speechless. “So … ” I say, staring in the distance at his beat-up mustang, then at him. “So … ” he says too, in his deep voice, his smile a little more wicked than it was two seconds ago. He glances at my mouth. Oh god. Why am I licking my lips? It only made his eyes narrow and darken. I open my mouth to speak, failing to find words. He smells like sweat and soap and shampoo, and I feel my traitorous nipples push up to my top again. Why do they do that when he’s around? “This is illegal,” I state. His voice is husky from exertion, and his eyes glint with laughter. “That’s why it’s fun.” I look away from his eyes, trying to focus and clear my head. He leans over and peers into my face, his face shadowed by the moonlight and his jaw now carrying a little scruff. “Are we in agreement?” he presses. “No.” I glare and shake my head, meeting his cocky gaze. “You’re reckless, Racer.” “So are you, Alana.” “It’s just … Lana.” His brows fly up in surprise. “And a bit of a liar too.” I purse my lips, still glaring as my gaze goes back to his car. Girls are rubbing against it as if it were him, and I find it disgusting. Why are women always acting so slutty around race car drivers and bad boys? “You crashed your car,” I say flippantly. “You crashed my car,” he contradicts, amused. I laugh, then scowl in his direction. “You crashed it more. I can’t believe you were making such a fuss about me crashing into you when it was just a little kiss—” He leans in to peck my lips—fast but firmly. “That’s a kiss.” I lose my breath. My eyes wide. He eases back, lips smiling as he comes to his feet and stretches his hand out to take me by the elbow and help me to my feet. “Let’s get out of here.” He starts walking, leading the way. “And go where?” “Anywhere I can get my hands on you.”

“One day soon I’m going to take you out on a drive with me and you’ll never be the same”. 
Well this was one little fast ride! A racing bad boy and the woman who brings him to his knees? I practically drooled on the spot when I heard about this story and let me tell you, the story itself was one adrenaline-pumping, sexy read.

Being the son of a famous fighter, Racer Tate is keen to make his own mark in racing. Already a legend in street racing, he has everything that a man can want right now and nothing can get better than this. That is until he sees a green eyed beauty who makes him want more and what Racer wants, Racer gets.

Lana Heyworth has worked hard for the past few years on her family’s racing team and seeing some of her siblings begin to lose hope for team’s success, only makes Lana that more determined in finding someone. But not just anyone, this person has to have what it takes to get in the driver’s seat and be one of the greats. Bumping into Racer was an accident, looking into those blue eyes, was a mistake but falling for him will be the best decision she’ll ever make. 

What will happen when Racer decides he wants the girl and the championship? 
“I don’t know what it is about her, but from the moment I saw her I wanted to claim, conquer, and own”. 

I LOVED everything about Racer in this story. In the beginning I truly thought that he was a little crazy with his bluntness but I loved it!! He didn’t waste any time in saying what he wanted and he went after it. If he wanted to be number one, he did everything in his power to make sure he could get there and executed the same philosophy in being with Lana. His dedication and love to everything he cared about was worth watching and I enjoyed every moment of his journey. 

Like the adrenaline junkie I was, my heart was in my throat on that race track with Racer. Every nerve, every muscle movement and scare, I felt it and even though some of those scenes weren’t easy, I’m glad I got to witness those moments because they were raw, real, and up-close. If you’ve read the previous books and loved them, I know you wont be disappointed in “Racer.


If you're a fan of Remington Tate and Brooke in the Real Series of Katy Evans, I'm sure you'll definitely understand how ecstatic I am knowing that that their son Racer will be getting his own story. I have been anticipating for this book that the moment I started reading it, I could not put it down. Katy Evans again made me fall in love with yet another Tate and this time it's not just the father but -- Racer the blue eyed devil.

Lawd, first few pages and I was already sucked into the story. Racer just like his father Remy stole a part of me and owned it. I love his swagger and his intensity. I love the adrenaline rush of just reading his name and imagining him uttering those dirty talks coming from his filthy mouth with dominance and power. Gahd! My panties melted just thinking about his intense stare and his cockiness. I can't help myself swooning and fantasizing over him because I tell you, it's orgasmic! The moment he uttered,

"This is the girl. The one I'm going to marry. The one whose life I'm going to completely ruin." 

I wanted to scream because fuck me if it doesn't just made my ovaries explode. Just like his father, Racer is a man who goes after what he wants. And his determination? It's killing me!

Now, the woman whose more than lucky enough to get Racer's attention and take note, the woman he's going to marry, is another story. I love Racer no doubt about that but it took me a while to warm up with Lana. Don't get me wrong. She's an adorable woman whose determined to chase her family's dream and doing it unselfishly is a plus for me. However the connection I have with these two characters seemed unbalanced. I have a strong attachment with Racer but it took me a while with Lana. She's a good woman but the pesonality she exhibits is not that strong enough for me. But, it never stopped me from reading the book and devouring their HEA. They might not be the perfect pair for me but I did enjoy their journey.

To end, the book is good. Katy's writing as always is easy to get into with. My reading journey was effortless. The story too was amazing . Light hearted and no angst yet packed full with adrenaline rushing scenes, swoony feels, steamy hot scenes that will make your squirm in your seat plus moments where you definitely realize that Love is real.And indeed with this two, it is. Racer is cut from the same cloth as his father. Not just on getting what he wants, but the reason why we all fell in love with Remy a while back. And to have Lana on board without so much drama, I finally get warmed up with her. In fact I have been cheering for their HEA. Because let's face it, falling in love with a Tate is never easy.

I recommend this one especially to the fans of Remington Tate. I am sure you will fall in love with his son too - Racer.
