Misadventures with a Speed Demon by Chelle Bliss
Release Date: 18th September
Genre: Contemporary Romance
3 Fast CROWNS
Misadventures with a Speed Demon was light and fun, and I found the story to be entertaining. It did, however, lack the wow factor.
Both the hero and heroine had their moments. I enjoyed their conversations and their banter. I liked the flirting and the intimacy was hot. I found, though, that I did not seem to connect with them. I didn’t feel the passion or the falling in love or the lust.
The story, similar to that of the characters was enjoyable, but it lacked a meaty conflict that caused any type of obstacle. What was put in their path was easily surmountable, and their level headed behavior as well as the good advice from secondary characters had the conflict resolving rather quickly.
The one aspect that I did enjoy was the theme of the book. The loved the idea of home and that one of the main characters found a home within a new group of people. The ideas articulated at the end of the book by the characters were heartfelt and warmed my heart.
While this book didn’t blow me out of the water, it might for someone else. There wasn’t anything bothersome about the pacing or the characters, it just didn’t spark something in this particular reader, so I would definitely give it a shot.

Brooks Carter is wild, reckless, and the youngest stock car driver on the professional circuit. He’s the one everyone’s gunning for when they’re not hoping for his failure at every turn. But Brooks is too hot to be left in the dust by anyone. Even with masses of female fans, Brooks only has eyes for one woman—Faith Ridley. Unfortunately, she’s the little sister of his biggest rival, who also happens to be the most notorious hothead on the track.
Faith has spent her life around hotshots like Brooks—gorgeous, cocky, and racing from one hookup to the next. It doesn’t matter that Brooks has had her in his crosshairs for months. She knows better. Until one lapse in judgment turns into more…
As passions rev up and tempers flare, Faith gets caught in the crossfire. But Brooks has come too far to back down without a fight. Can he win Faith’s heart while earning the respect of his enemy? Or will the rivals’ macho bravado force Faith to walk away from them both?
Buckle up. It’s going to be a wicked ride…
