One Sweet Ride by Jaci Burton is the 6th book in her awesome Play-by-Play series and again it does not disappoint, with that said, fasten your seat belts ladies and get ready for a story that will keep you on the edge of you seats and leave you very satisfied.

OSREvelyn Hill is aide to Senator Maxwell Preston, Vice-Presidential candidate. She has dreams and goals to someday be in the White house herself, but for now she is hard at work trying to get the Senator the VP nomination. They need exposure and who better to help them than the Senators son, Grayson Preston, Owner and Driver of the Preston Racing Team. Gray has a huge fan base and if Evelyn can convince Gray to help their cause then the Senator Preston will certainly make the cut. Evelyn figures the best way to earn Gray’s trust and convince him to help is to learn everything she can about the sport that he loves so much, NASCAR.

Gray wants nothing to do with his father or his bid for VP. After a falling out with his father over his choice of college and career, they have not seen or spoken to each other in years. But Evelyn will not take no for an answer, after enlisting the help of Gray’s mother, he reluctantly agrees to help, but on his terms. Evelyn tries every chance she gets to get Gray to understand that he father has changed, but Gray sticks to his guns and fights her on getting too involved with the campaign. When a secret is revealed will it help Gray change is opinion of his father?

There is an instant connection between Gray and Evelyn. Both are career focused, driven individuals who know what they want out of life. But what I loved most about these characters is their depth. Under the surface there was so much more to them and as their story unfolds you learn more and more about their lives and dreams, what makes them the people that they are, what drives them to succeed. They also realize that they have much more in common than either of them thought, from their love of art and theater, to quiet walks on the beach and fast muscle cars. They are both in love with each other, but neither wants to limit the others potential or make each other choose a life together while sacrificing their dreams. I loved that about these characters, they were not all about themselves, they each tried to put the others happiness and dreams before their own.

So, if you are looking for a great summer time read with Hot Guys, Fast Cars, and a Wonderful story line, run out and pick up a copy of this book. You will be in for “One Sweet Ride.”
