A rash decision can become the best ever.

Race car driver Cody Gamino has come from Europe to the United States for one thing. To race with the incredible Xin. Their one night together means more to him than he expected and suddenly, it’s not just about racing together, but about being together too. Forever.

Racer N’Jelle ‘Xin’ Marx turns to a handsome man she met outside a bar, just to forget for a night. Six weeks and two pinklines later, she is questioning the decision she’d made that night. When he shows up at her job, revealing to her who he truly is, and snatches it out from under her, she doesn’t have the fight in her any longer. She leaves.

Cody isn’t one to give up and when he learns of his unborn child, he digs in even more. Will these two, used to life in the lane, learn to slow down and see what is before them? Will they recognize what they have to lose?

One night is sometimes all you need!

Xin and Cody are both race drivers, although Xin has faced more adversity than Cody, simply because she is a woman and black. When her personal life becomes complicated, she has a one-night stand with Cody, not knowing who he is. Then things really hit the fan.

This is a fast-paced novel that I think would have read better for me if I’d read the first two books in the series. It jumps about a bit as well. The family situation was a complete blank to me, but I felt as though I should know some of it. And the crew Kenny was with? Who were they?

Cody is also a jerk for 90% of the book – arrogant and high-handed, thinking his way is the right way. I was happy when he got his act together and started behaving like a human, instead of a misogynistic ***!

This erotic story is full of drama so if that’s what you’re after, that’s what you’ll get.
