World's fastest cars. Death lurking around every turn. Is Samantha brave enough to keep her foot down?

Seventeen-year-old Samantha killed her father in a tragic accident. Now she's dedicated her life to winning. Her father's dreams will be fulfilled...even if it destroys her. Eighteen-year-old Manny is next in line to run his uncle's Formula One team. But he's not ready. It's hard to be confident when the crew still sees him as that kid who once threw up at a race.

When Samantha's driving puts her inside Manny's world, even the crew can feel it. There's electricity between them. Samantha thinks she can face her fears. But she's wrong. Samantha won't stand a chance at winning the race of her career unless...Manny can step-up and be her rock. Working together, they have a shot at crowning Samantha the first female world champion.

"SERIOUSLY, please read this amazing story! Okay, even though the story is about racing cars (A subject I don't know a lot about), it totally grabs your attention with the way the author describes the racing world (It was as if I was watching a movie. In a lot of moments, I was literally closing my eyes." - Review from Sincerely Happily Ever After BOOKS blog.
