Speed Dating by Nancy Warren

Speed Dating - Nancy Warren

Not so much of a romance than a NASCAR tribute, but still a lovely and entertaining read. Made me want to clobber the hero over the head a few times, but I loved the heroine. Her gradual change from shy mouse to feisty lioness determined to fight for what she wants was almost bitter-sweet and slow enough to make it believable.

I’ve never been to a NASCAR race but this book made me want to give it a try. I could almost hear the roar of the engines and see the colorful cars fly along the track.

I have a question, though? How does a rebel yell sound? I first started wondering with the Billy Idol song, but Mr. Dylan “Dy (which is apparently short for dysfunctional)” Hargreave made me curious once more.
