Review: "Hot Finish"
Series: Fast Track #3
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Author's Website: http://www.erinmccarthy.net/
Suzanne Jefferson is broke, which is why she’s given up charity work for wedding planning. Fortunately, she has a high-profile client—and best of all, he’s paid in advance. There are just two teensy problems: The bride is a bona fide bridezilla, and Suzanne’s ex-husband is the best man. At least she thought he was her ex-husband…
...but this one might.
Two years after their marriage fell apart, stock car race driver Ryder Jefferson still can’t stop thinking about Suzanne. Which is why he isn’t too upset that, due to a glitch, the two are still technically married. Now he’s imagining easing Suzanne’s woes by satisfying her needs in the bedroom. After all, that’s the one room they never argued in. Besides, with wedding bells ringing all around them, Ryder is wondering if—even though they’d quit the race a few laps too early—they can still come on strong with a big, romantic finish…
This was a fun book filled with a bridezilla who has to be the biggest waste of air I have ever seen, but she did make for some great scenes in the book. Suzanne and Ryder have been divorced for years, but in the last few months have been thrown together matchmaking for their friends. Suzanne is planning the wedding for friends when Ryder bring her unexpected news, they never did get divorced, which brings up all sorts of complications for them.
For the most part watching Suzanne and Ryder maneuver through all sorts of issues and crazy antics was great fun. It did get old though that neither one of them would take the time to talk through their issues instead of assuming what the other was thinking of.
This book, while set in the NASCAR world of the series, really didn't have much to do with the racing world other than having drivers that were the characters.
