This book is a scorching allure, love triangle story with plenty of testosterone flowing with worldwide auto racing and hot sex. As you whiz through one race after another, your imagination will take you on a page turning and fascinating read to places you might have dreamed of going. Simone Sinna must have done a lot of research to put this book together because I thought it was exceptionally realistic, but then I have never been to a Grand Prix race. She hustled me through fabulous places, giving me a mix of intrigue, mystery, and sex filled pages of pleasure. As a journalist, Stephanie Beauman goes from to country to country as an undercover journalist, her mission of helping the rich and provocative, Jeffrey Carroway to make a documentary becomes a reality. The story puts her in some strange places, typically the bedrooms of several men. While writing about the charming International Grand Prix circuit, Stephanie finds out that prior lover, Gabriel de Romanos is now an owner of the Argentinean team. There is more, too, because Gabriel plays for keeps. His plans are to win both the championship and the girl he wants at any cost. Money is not a problem. He is not stupid when he discovers that the French driver, Jean-Luc is his biggest obstacle his has to winning the woman he wants and the race, too. Jeffrey, having already rejected Stephanie can sometimes be a sweetheart and other times he is a complete ass. I didn’t really like him very much, but Stephanie seems to, so that is good enough for me. It was good that he was intent on keeping an eye on Stephanie as they race toward the glittering climax at the new Texas Circuit of the Americas. Even Stephanie has mixed emotions about him, but then she does with all of her men. Stephanie’s uncovering of a murder and corruption involving both Jeffrey and Gabriel puts her life and the life of Jean-Luc at risk. This little bit of intrigue spices up the bedroom rationality and gives the reader a break from Stephanie’s confusion. She decides toward the end which man she can trust. This is not a spoiler - you will have to sail along with Stephanie to find out how she resolves her emotional journey and how she finds her heart. Warning - she will snare your interest, as you learn about the men in her life and as you follow her footsteps to the doors of true love.

I snapped the third in the Stephanie Beauman series up as soon as it hit the digital book shelves. Having read the first two, Embedded and Expose, I couldn’t wait to found what further twists and turns directed Stephanie’s life. I wasn’t disappointed. Never one to hide her light under the proverbial bushel, Stephanie takes another undercover journalistic assignment, this time helping to make a documentary about the International Grand Prix circuit. She meets an old adversary, lethally compelling Jeffrey Caroway. Wouldn’t you know it, former lover Gabriel de Romanos is the owner of the Argentinean team. I was pleased about that. I rather like Gabriel, mainly because he’s obsessed with Stephanie and she’s one of the few things in his life that he can’t control with his money and compelling charm. Gabriel if focused on winning the championship but his feelings for Stephanie haven’t changed and he’s equally determined to win her. Jeffrey seems similarly minded but kick-ass Stephanie takes no prisoners and the reader is left guessing which way she’ll swing. Trouble seems to follow Stephanie in whatever she does and once again she finds herself up to her neck in murder and mayhem that throws suspicion on both Jeffery and Gabriel. Oh, and I almost forgot about Jean-Luc for a moment there. He’s a French driver who also has his sights set on Stephanie, and beating Gabriel to the championship. When his life his threatened Stephanie must decide who she can trust, as well as trying to stay alive herself, producing nail-biting tension as I rooted for Stephanie to come through. Fast moving and exciting, with lots of hot, throbbing engines, (and I’m not necessarily talking about the cars here!). More twists and turns than most race tracks and a definite chicane of a climax that I didn’t see coming. Exciting escapism that will have you on the edge of your seat, rooting for Stephanie. Buy it! Better yet, buy all three. You won’t regret it.
