Fast Ride
Tracy Brothers #1
By Michelle Dayton
Releasing April 20th, 2018

Jen Appleton is the woman who always says yes. To her boss. To her employees. To charity. To everyone except herself. But when she rear-ends a red Porsche on her way home from a nasty day at work, and the man driving the midlife-crisis cliché turns out to be hot, hot, hot, Jen decides tonight’s the night to say yes to things she’s never said yes to before.

Yes, to a one-night stand in a motel.

Yes, to the hottest night on record.

Yes, to anything Garrett Tracy wants to do to her body.

Garrett knows the chemistry between them can only be described as extreme. But it’s just one night. And then he can get back to work convincing his ex-girlfriend to give him another shot.

When Jen approaches Garrett as the only person in Chicago who might solve her massive work problem, he agrees to help—on the condition that Jen will coach him in winning back his ex. As they work on their projects, Jen and Garrett can’t resist the incredible attraction sparking between them. It’s the perfect friends-with-benefits situation. Until Jen’s heart finally forces her to start saying no.

In Fast Ride (Tracy Brothers #1) by Michelle Dayton, Jen Appleton wants her boss, but he doesn't treat her any different than as an employee. So, maybe it's time to move on and when she rear-ends an expensive car, she can't help but say yes to a night of passion with the man driving. However, she soon finds herself becoming more involved with Garrett Tracy in an effort to help him get his ex back. Will Jen and Garrett be able to walk away from each other once she's helped him or will they fight for their chance at happy ever after?

This is the second book I've read by Ms. Dayton, and I've got to say that she had me hooked from the very beginning of this story, as the heroine isn't having the best of days and I couldn't help but think it was going to get worse before it got better. However, in saying that, I loved the direction this author took this story, as the heroine could use a little good in her life and Garrett is certainly just what she needs to turn around her horrible day. 

As for the dialogue, it was intense due to the main characters back stories and the obstacles these two face to be together including whether the heroine can manage to get her way when it comes to her career and whether the hero will realize that getting back with his ex isn't his best option. Moreover, both the main characters were fantastic and I loved the heroine's determination to help the hero, especially because her ideas are certain to make his ex jealous. I also liked how strong and brave the heroine is when it comes to fighting for what she wants. No way will she back down and I liked how far she was willing to go to get what she wants. Will everything work out for the best or will it backfire? Yet, what I liked most of all about the heroine was how supportive the secondary characters are of her because she's a good boss. 

While the hero, he's confident, successful, a good brother, smart and I liked how determined he was to help the heroine. His ideas are brilliant, which is proven by what the heroine ends up getting in return for accepting his advice. However, in saying that, I couldn't help but be a little frustrated with the hero because why settle for his ex when he could have love in his life. Certainly, he and his ex aren't right for each other and wanting to get back with her was for all the wrong reasons. Yet, what I liked most of all about the hero was the close relationship he had with his brother and how his brother pushes him when it comes to making the right choice. What a way for his brother to get him to realize how he feels.

Overall, Ms. Dayton has delivered a really good read in this book where the chemistry between this couple was intense; the romance was steamy and does justice to this couple's strong chemistry; and the ending had me loving what the hero does to win the heroine back. Really, it had me smiling because the heroine wasn't at fault this time. In fact, she was at the right place at the right time. I would recommend Fast Ride by Michelle Dayton, if you enjoy the fake relationship trope or books by authors Tessa Bailey, Jennifer Crusie, Lucy Parker and Julie James.

There are only three things Michelle Dayton loves more than sexy and suspenseful novels: her family, the city of Chicago, and Mr. Darcy. Michelle dreams of a year of world travel – as long as the trip would include weeks and weeks of beach time. As a bourbon lover and unabashed wine snob, Michelle thinks heaven is discussing a good book over an adult beverage.
