Gray Preston is a rich and sexy race car driver. Evelyn is a political aide to Gray’s father. Gray and his father had a falling out many years ago, and Gray doesn’t much care for his father. But Gray has big fan base that would help his father win an election. Evenly has just what it takes to win Gray over ….in more ways than one.
I don’t know a thing about race cars or car racing, but that didn’t stop me from thoroughly enjoying this book. Both the hero and heroine are strong well written characters who each brought something to the story. I loved that sexy tough guy Gray was deep down inside a good guy and a gentleman. Albeit a very dirty talking gentleman. I loved that Evelyn used her brain to win Gray over on helping his father. She wasn’t whiney or needy.
As usual Jaci Burton did not disappoint when it came to the sex scenes. There were plenty to fill the pages and they were hot and sometimes perfectly dirty. A little light spanking here and there … some good solid dirty talking…and even a hot video chat. The chemistry between Gray and Evelyn was off the charts from the beginning which made the sex between the two even better.
I have just two tiny complaints about this book. One – the sex was delicious but I also really enjoyed the non-sex interaction between Gray and Evelyn so I would have enjoyed some more out of the bed interaction between them. And two – the whole “this was never meant to be a long term thing and now job’s are over but we love each other but it could never work” deal just didn’t fit for these two characters. They’re both too smart and mature for that sort of thing.
Overall I thoroughly enjoyed this book. In fact it’s been a few days since I finished it, and when I think about it I think I like it even more now than when I finished it. It was fun and sexy and I enjoyed both the hero and heroine. I’m not sure there’s much more to ask for. One Sweet Ride is the 6th book in Burton’s Play-By-Play series. I haven’t read any of the other books in the series, so this one can definitely be read as a stand alone. But I think I need to go back and start from the beginning!

“That sounds like an ad for a serial killer movie.”
He laughed. “Can you die from a really great orgasm?”
