A bad boy with something to prove.
A woman with a mission.
The race of their lives.
The love of a lifetime.

I don’t think his parents expected him to live up to his name—Racer Tate—but once he felt the adrenaline rush behind the wheel, he was addicted.

He's the fastest, fiercest driver around.

Scouting new talent brings me to his doorstep...
but his smile sends me to my knees.

The sexy, mysterious Racer Tate is not the kind of man a girl like me falls for. He's secretive, reckless, elusive. But his proximity pushes me beyond reason, and his kiss....

This is our last chance to win, and he is our only hope. I'm supposed to watch him—make sure he doesn't get into trouble. But it's an impossible task. And now the one in heart wrenching, toe-curling, soul-crushing trouble is me. Because when your heart belongs to someone, their truths become your own, and their secrets become your salvation...or your curse.

He says he wants me. He says I'm the One. But he also thinks he'll break my heart, one piece at a time until it's gone.



Stacia says…

I have been a huge fan of this series from the very beginning. Not only do I LOVE Remy, but I have read Real more times than I can count. There is just something about his alpha ways that I can’t get past…. Or so I thought- until I read Racer!
Racer Tate is the son of Remy and Brooke and he is one mysterious, bad-boy, dirty talking man! From the first words out of his mouth, I was hooked and couldn’t stop smiling or reading until I finished the book. In some ways, Racer is so much like his father. He can be jealous, over-protective, demanding, and he loves his music (like his dad). But he is also sexy as sin, sweet, and affectionate! As soon as he lays his eyes on Lana he knows she is the one.

Lana’s family owns HW Racing Team. This season could possibly be their last if they don’t find a racer who can bring home a win. So, Lana goes in search of the best racer she can find and stumbles on Racer Tate.
The sexual tension and chemistry between these two was through the roof! I was seriously giddy while reading this book, just dying to see how it would all play out and if Racer would “scent and lick” like his dad did!! SWOON….

“You’re mine… 
You’re mine too.
I am. I race for you. Live for you, girl” 

Sometimes you connect with characters or a series and you just don’t want it to end. That is how I feel about the Real series! I want more of Remy, Brooke, Racer, and Lana. So, I am hoping that Katy doesn’t stop with this book and that she gives us Iris’ story (Racer’s little sister) next.

Excerpt

I’m still reeling. While people approach him, he cuts a path straight to me, his gaze penetrating and target-like; making me want to bolt.

His lips do that little upward tilt they do that seems so sexy, and for a second, I feel like I’m lightheaded.

I gulp, and then feel mad at myself for acting like some idiot as fucking devil-Racer Tate reaches me, throws himself into a seat next to me, and turns to look at me expectantly with the most gorgeous grin on his face.

I don’t know what to say.

This guy has left me sort of speechless.

“So … ” I say, staring in the distance at his beat-up mustang, then at him.

“So … ” he says too, in his deep voice, his smile a little more wicked than it was two seconds ago. He glances at my mouth.

Oh god.

Why am I licking my lips?

It only made his eyes narrow and darken.

        I open my mouth to speak, failing to find words. He smells like sweat and soap and shampoo, and I feel my traitorous nipples push up to my top again. Why do they do that when he’s around?

“This is illegal,” I state.

His voice is husky from exertion, and his eyes glint with laughter. “That’s why it’s fun.”

I look away from his eyes, trying to focus and clear my head. He leans over and peers into my face, his face shadowed by the moonlight and his jaw now carrying a little scruff. “Are we in agreement?” he presses.

“No.” I glare and shake my head, meeting his cocky gaze. “You’re reckless, Racer.”

“So are you, Alana.”

“It’s just … Lana.”

His brows fly up in surprise. “And a bit of a liar too.”

I purse my lips, still glaring as my gaze goes back to his car. Girls are rubbing against it as if it were him, and I find it disgusting. Why are women always acting so slutty around race car drivers and bad boys?

“You crashed your car,” I say flippantly.

“You crashed my car,” he contradicts, amused.

I laugh, then scowl in his direction. “You crashed it more. I can’t believe you were making such a fuss about me crashing into you when it was just a little kiss—”

He leans in to peck my lips—fast but firmly. “That’s a kiss.”

I lose my breath.

My eyes wide.

He eases back, lips smiling as he comes to his feet and stretches his hand out to take me by the elbow and help me to my feet.

“Let’s get out of here.” He starts walking, leading the way.

“And go where?”

“Anywhere I can get my hands on you.”
