RACER, an all-new standalone in the Real Series from New York Times bestselling author Katy Evans is LIVE!!!
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.
The minute I saw Katy Evans announce this novel, I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that I wanted to read it immediately! What I didn’t realize was how much I NEEDED to read it. I needed to race back into this Real world that Katy Evans has created all those years ago and RACER was the perfect way to do that. RACER was like coming home. This is considered a standalone (and can read as such), but I would honestly recommend that if you want the full giddiness that comes along with reading about previous characters then you MUST read Katy's other novels: REAL, MINE, REMY, ROGUE, RIPPED, and LEGEND…ALL those characters make a cameo in RACER and make huge Real series fans, such as myself, go completely bonkers over their appearances. To get even a glimpse of what these beloved characters’ lives look like years later is like the whip cream, sprinkles AND cherry on top of my ice cream sundae.
Racer Tate is determined that he can step out from behind is fathers’ shadow. Being the son of one of the world’s most famous fighters, he wants to prove to both his dad and mom that he can pave his own way in life and also conquer his demons along the way. Addicted to speed and the adrenaline that comes along with racing, he has easily become a legend in illegal street racing and has made a name for himself. As an undefeated racer at the top of his game, he has the cops in his back pocket, woman in his bed and he wants for nothing. But all that is challenged when a certain green eyed beauty comes literally crashing into his world and makes time slow. All his attention instantly is drawn to her. And when Racer sets his eyes on something, he gets it.
Lana Heyworth is losing all sense of hope. Her families Formula 1 racing team (HW Racing) is on its last leg and needs a miracle to keep afloat, otherwise it will be no more. They are in need of a skillful driver and Lana is determined to find that driver. But not just any driver, the BEST driver to take them to the top and give them the ability to stay doing what they love. She had heard of the notorious undefeated street racer and was willing to take a chance on him for the sake of saving her families business, but what she hadn’t planned for was the all-consuming and irrevocable connection that she would feel for this blue eyed daredevil. She tries her hardest to deny it because she needs him for the team more than she needs him in her bed, but Racer is tenacious and unwilling to let her go without proving to her that they are worth the risk. But right when Lana starts to give in, Racer’s demons start to catch up to him and he can’t seem to outrace them. Can Racer and Lana overcome the race of their lives off the track as well as on? Can they save HW Racing?
SWOON!!! I absolutely adored this novel!!! RACER was everything I had hoped for and then some! Lana and Racer’s story will have you rooting for them from the beginning! Their relationship was raw, REAL, addictive and completely consuming. They are perfect for each other and I am truly happy that Katy was able to give us their story! RACER was about family. It was about breaking down your walls and letting someone in. It was about healing. It was about learning that love is worth the risk. It was about conquering what life throws at you. I could go on and on about this, but plain and simple, it was about finding your other half, the one that will love ALL of you... “I wonder if she’ll be the one to love and get every part of me.” –Racer. Racer Tate has held a piece of my heart ever since reading his parents novels (REAL, MINE, and REMY) and now after finishing his and Lana’s story, he is further cemented in my heart. Who can’t love a Tate after all?
5 “racing” stars!
