Rating: R (using the movie rating guide) – sexual content and some language
Flat-Out Sexy by Erin McCarthy was a great read. Or should I say listen since I downloaded the audiobook?
If you like steamy loves stories, and I do mean steamy, this book is for you!
The story takes place mostly in Charlotte, NC. I’m guessing the race track mentioned is Charlotte Motor Speedway since the lifestyles are that of racecar drivers. Erin McCarthy doesn’t really go into a lot of details about the racing, but she tells you enough to understand the characters and she writes about the few races the characters attend. Just enough information and race action to keep you interested, but not so extensive that it bores the non-race fan to death. I’m not a huge racing fan, so the information given didn’t bore me. Instead the information given kind of left me wanting to know a little more about the sport.
There are two main characters in Flat-Out Sexy, Tamara Briggs and Elec Monroe.
Tamara Briggs, 32, is the widow of Pete Briggs, a racecar driver, a college professor, with two children. Tamara’s daughter is Hunter and her son is Pete (or Petey as she calls him).
Elec Monroe, 25, comes from a racing family. His father used to race and his brother races along side him. Not much else is told about Elec’s life if I remember correctly.
Tamara is still close with her inlaws and she and her children visit/talk to them frequently. For some reason, which is vaguely told, the Briggs and the Monroes don’t like each other, but as fate has it Tamara and Elec meet and fall in love. Kind of a Romeo and Juliet love without the death.
I don’t want to say much else because I don’t want to ruin the book for you! Like I said, if you like to curl up with a steamy romance, I highly recommend Flat-Out Sexy. Pay attention to all the characters mentioned because they all play a roll in each other’s lives and those characters flow through to the next book in the Fast Track series.
