While in the forum's younger and less active days this used to be the one and only forum for "reviews and discussions about specific books", this is now just the subforum "other fiction" in a more well-organized "reviews and discussions about specific books" section with subforums for each genre. Check it out! :) Remember, the forums in the reviews section (including this forum) are for posting about a single book or series in topic, and the topic title should include the book's title. If you are creating a new topic, please try to post it in one of the other genres rather than posting it here in the "other fiction" section. This is only for books that do not fit in any of the other genre categories we have listed.

that is not an interesting review as I must say because there is no proper summary

If I only based on the cover, I wouldn't read this book. Car races is not something I'm interested in; however, I'm intrigued in how the author mixed facts and fiction so perfectly that you ended loving every part of the book. Fantastic review! I am now curious enough that I feel tempted to read this book!

@kalinadi thank you so much! I appreciate it you taking the time to read my review. It will surprise you as it did me, I found myself searching for racers history + watching race videos on YouTube. Now I can actually have a conversation about racing back in the day. I was reeled in by the romance themes of the book and got completely engulfed by the racing aspects - & in the best way.

@andrejavardana Thanks, that's really cool - glad you loved it!!! I enjoyed reading it and even gained an appreciation for the sport. However, I can't ever dream to be a rally driver past or present; the risks of the sport scare me too much.

This is a great review! I was worried that my lack of initial interest in racing would be keep me from enjoying this novel but it doesn't sound like that's the case at all. Adding this one to my list!
