Racing on the Edge by Shey Stahl ~ Blog tour and Giveaway

Happy Hour Synopsis:

Between revving engines, smoking tires, and high speeds, two friends form a vital bond in the shadows of the blaring spotlight. Sway Reins, a track owner’s only daughter, and Jameson Riley, a gritty NASCAR rookie driver, have been best friends since they were kids. Over the years, Sway becomes his safety shield during his rapid rise to the elite levels of auto racing. A night of celebrating a victory leaves Sway believing that she can convince Jameson to fall in love with her. She becomes determined to be more than just a pit lizard trolling the pits. Little does she know that this steadfast racer has his own idea of revelry. Soon their compression ratios are timed exactly right and all the reciprocating motions have led them to happy hour. As their passion revs, the inner workings of an internal combustion engine have never been so erotic. Just a taste turns into a thirst neither of them saw coming. Can she convince this rookie he can have love and his dream?


I am not a fan of racing at all, but I had heard amazing things about this series and was really excited to join the blog tour and read the books when Kim from Kindlehooked asked us to join.  I am so glad I did, Shey has changed my view on racing and I loved these books and can't wait to finish the rest of the books in this series.  Every factor I love in a book was included; love, angst, drama, and humor. 4 stars!

Jameson Riley and Sway Reis have been best friends since an early age when they meet at her father’s race track. She is the only thing that is real in his life, and keeps him grounded as he rapidly rises through the racing ranks. Sway is in love with Jameson, she has been since the moment they meet but Jameson is a NASCAR rookie that is used to getting what he wants, women included. After a night of passion, they both let their guards down and admit they have sexual feelings for each other. They decide to stop thinking about the consequences and see where being "friends with benefits" leads them. Car terminology takes on a whole new mean in their sexual quest of each other, OMG I never knew the term camshaft could be so sexy! Jameson's lifestyle prohibits him from committing and things get complicated....can best friends really become lovers? Will their friendship survive and true love prevail?

I highly recommend this series, Happy Hour was phenomenal.  I laughed out loud so many times, cried, and had to fan myself to cool down from the steaminess between Jameson and Sway.  I even loved the secondary characters....Jameson's family was hilarious and the interactions between characters was so realistic.  If you haven't read this series yet you are really missing out, be sure to get your copies today!
