Killer Curves by Roxanne St. Claire

Killer Curves - Roxanne St. Claire

First thought: It wasn’t bad, but it could’ve been better.

Well-written and well-paced with a plethora of interesting and different characters, smokin’ hot, exciting in its race-track imagery...But there was something off. First of all, the initial premise was ruined by the heroine and her rather self-centered offer of possible help for a dying man. Second, and biggest problem of all, the suspense somehow didn’t work. Okay, it did work, until the real motive was revealed. It just caused a great dissonance with the rest of the story. It was flimsy, rather unbelievable, and seemed quickly (too quickly) put together.

The rest was absolutely great. Once the heroine decided to embrace her true self and grew up, the hero, the racing, the romance, the sex, the second-chances storyline. Pity it didn’t have a more solid suspense sub-plot. It could’ve worked out so much better.
