Reid Travers knows how to win. Becoming Motocross royalty was always the plan, and he was willing to make sacrifices along the way to reach his goal. Sacrifices he thought he could live with until he returned to the small town where he grew up and learned to ride, and, more importantly, where he fell in love.

When fate sends Nora Bennett back into his life, he takes one look at her and realizes that he made a huge mistake breaking up with her five years ago. Now, he'll do whatever it takes to win her back. As Reid sets out to earn her forgiveness and convince her that the guy she's dating is not the one for her, Nora finds herself torn between what her head is telling her and what her heart wants.

It's a race he never expected to be in, for a girl he can't stand to lose again.



Leave it to Elizabeth Lee to create a female lead we can all love and relate to, a male lead we can both drool over and fall head over heels for, and a supporting cast that leaves us begging for their stories!  Yes, she’s done it again, this time with the heartbroken but strong and determined Nora Bennett and the beautiful man who left her shattered, Reid Travers.  He was the up and coming Motocross rider, she his number one fan and true love.  But when his number was up, he had to make a choice, and the one he made tore them both apart.

I love a great reunion story, and let me tell you, sparks flew the moment Reid and Nora’s paths crossed again after so many years.  She was trying so hard to not be affected by him, but it was useless despite her boyfriend trying to make his claim on her quite obvious to his former arch rival Reid.  I’m not sure which I loved more, the funny and feisty side of Reid or the sexy “I want my woman back and I’m going to take her” side, because both kept me thoroughly enthralled in every moment! 

Reid was a huge name in the Motocross world, and his return to town and lofty proclamations did little to ease Nora’s mind about the possibility of having her heart ripped out again.  They had the intense connection, sexual tension like you wouldn’t believe, and the past that made them fit like the perfect glove, but she needed more.  And with her own skeletons in the closet and a boyfriend in the picture, there were challenges in the mix that made for some page-turning drama!  Fans will love this latest addition to Ms. Lee’s ever-growing list of hits, and new readers will surely want to check out more of her work after meeting these awesome characters.  I myself can’t wait for more!!

Quotes:

I’d caught myself holding it in when we made eye contact.  His gaze hit me like darts and I had to force myself to look away.  What in the actual fuck is wrong with me? ~Loc 554

I had honestly thought I was over him.  I had a boyfriend.  Not to mention, I hated Reid for breaking my heart and leaving me.  Apparently, I only mentally hated him.  My body, on the other hand, was a big fan.  ~Loc 557

He had to quit saying things that made me forget to hate him.  He was making it entirely too hard to stay mad at him and I was really good at it.  I was the Be-Mad-At-Reid State Champion, seven years running. ~Loc 1336




EXCERPT
Reid Travers had grown up. He had always been attractive, but time and professional racing had done something to his features and body that he should have thanked the good Lord every day for. His jawline and nose seemed more chiseled. His eyes wiser and brighter. Well-worn jeans hung around his hips, the waistband sitting just below a set of abs that had me thinking all kinds of things—none of which had anything to do with a real estate transaction. While my stomach was a knot of nervousness, below that something inside of me was coiling so tightly that the possibility of shooting straight into the sky seemed feasible. Especially if he kept looking at me the way he was. His brown eyes were locked on mine and I was helpless to look away. “Nora Bennett,” he said as he closed the distance between us. He ran his hand down his jawline, the days’ worth of stubble only adding to his new all-grown-up appeal. “How are you?”

“Fine,” I answered softly as he reached out. The second his hand touched my arm, I knew I was in trouble—his rough, calloused fingertips met my smooth skin and it was like striking a match.




When I'm not writing or playing the part of wife and mom, you can find me dancing back-up for Beyonce, singing back-up for Miranda, or sunning myself on the beach with a drink in hand. Here's the thing about being born and raised in a small town--you have a very vivid imagination! Now, I channel it all to create stories where the girl always ends up with the right guy, first kisses are magical, and a happy ending is just that!
