    1. This is definitely a case of it's-not-you-it's-me. If you like instalust or don't mind it, this book might be up your alley, but for me? This book is like a 101 on all the reasons why I absolutely can't stand instalust.Right from their introduction, which is when they're talking before having met in person, they're super attracted to one another. This is Kerri's reaction to just HEARING the dude speak:(view spoiler)[The line crackled loudly in her ear, then Kerri heard a grunt a faint pop and th [...]

    2. *I received a free ARC of In the Fast Lane from St. Martin's Paperbacks via Netgalley in exchange of an honest and unbiased review*In the Fast Lane is definitely a very hot romance, and having the heroine being a race-car drive just made her all the more interesting.This and all my other reviews are originally posted on my blog(un)Conventional Bookviews

    3. READ AND REVIEW: IN THE FAST LANE BY AUDRA NORTH   IN THE FAST LANE BY AUDRA NORTH Release Date:  July 14, 2015 SYNOPSIS LIFE IN THE FAST LANERacing cars is in Kerri Hart's blood--literally, since it's the family business. But Hart Racing is in dire financial straits, and as the only female rookie driver, Kerri's sponsorship offers always tend to be of the unzipped racing-suit variety. It's a message she'd rather not sell to her young fans. But how can she afford not to? LOVE ON OVERDRIVE [...]

    4. 4-1/2 stars.I think this is the first book by Audra North that I've read, but it definitely won't be the last. I really love the whole "Let's pretend to be engaged/in a relationship for whatever reason and eventually realize we're perfect for each other" trope. And this story has a perfect spin on it because it's pretty much taken every other book you've read with this trope and flipped it around. Rookie racecar driver Kerri Hart's family business needs some capital. It's supplied by the sexy Ra [...]

    5. This exciting and sexy story pits Kerri and Ranger at odds with each other as Ranger takes over Kerri's family racing business, much to her dismay but ultimate reluctant acceptance due to their dire financial straights. But even worse, an ex- boyfriend has made her tabloid fodder again. something Ranger aims to fix by giving her love life some stability in order to lure in the sponsors, an easy task if they can pretend that an engagement between them has been in the works in secret. But their cl [...]

    6. Loved this book!! A fabulously strong female lead character and great writing made this one quite enjoyable. Kerri Hart is working hard to get the respect and recognition Hart Racing deserves, but every sponsorship deal that is offered want her to play up her sexy side rather than her racing abilities. Since Kerri won't play that game, Hart Racing is in serious financial shape. When, unknown to Kerri, Colt Hardware makes a large financial investment in Hart Racing, Kerri is left to find a way to [...]

    7. In the Fast Lane gets a fast but decent 3.75 stars from me. The story was short compared to the length I normally read but I did like what was on the pages. The hero was entertaining and had a sexy drawl to him. The heroine was one to admire in that she was in a man's world but held her own. I liked it but felt it was rushed which is easy to understand considering the book's short length. I will probably end up reading Audra North's next book just because I did like her writing style and her ind [...]

    8. I picked up this one based on Laura Florand's recommendation. A female race car driver was so intriguing as an MC! I tried a sample and liked it well enough to buy the ebook. It started off strong and I really enjoyed the early chapters. But I felt like it faltered a bit towards the end, I just wasn't as into the story as I wanted to be.

    9. This short book was a good start to a series. I really liked the Hart family's racing team. All of the characters were good ones, and I thought the two main characters, Kerri and Ranger, were especially great. I enjoyed the fast paced storyline. It had plenty of action and kept me interested. The romance between Kerri and Ranger was good, and I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

    10. My Review:I love the premise of this story up and coming stock car racer who's female. That's Kerri and she drives for her family team that her dad started when he was a driver. Unfortunately, the team is struggling with finances a bit now and that's where Ranger comes in.Al Colt, Ranger's dad, owns a very powerful company. He bought out 80% of the racing team and puts Ranger in charge of turning their finances around. That's fineRanger can do this, except he knows nothing about racing. He knows [...]

    11. This is the first book I’ve read by Audra North and it won’t be my last. From page one, I was hooked and I can’t wait to read more stories from her! This story is about Kerri Hart doing whatever she can to keep her family racing business a float without having to sell herself. Being the only woman in racing makes it really hard to get sponsors. Add to the fact that the media has made her look like a hot head, has only made things even harder. So when she found out her brother sold most of [...]

    12. In the Fast Lane was my first book by this lovely author. I enjoyed myself immensely The story of Kerri and Ranger (wow hot name right?!) was one of such understanding and beauty. Kerri got Ranger even when he didn’t get himself. That’s what we ladies do. We are perceptive when it comes to our men. Knowing what makes them tick, when to push, and when to stay silent. Kerri knew that Rangers hurt in life was justified and he deserved his revenge, but she also knew he was better than that, and [...]

    13. This review was originally posted on Bookish Things & More Review In the Fast Lane is a fast paced book that will have you flipping the pages.The story line takes place over a couple of months which makes for a quick and fun romance.  I loved the idea of a race car driver and owner forming a relationship.  They both have their issues with the other, but there are soooo many sparks that make it an awesome journey.Kerri is now driving stock cars after racing in the indie league.  She has ma [...]

    14. Kerri and Ranger I thought had a good relationship, I mean Ranger took everything she said and made it pervy but it was funny at times: A surprised laugh escaped her. “Your head is ridiculously huge, you know that?”“Which head are you referring to, exactly?” He waggled his brows, leering at her.Kerri that girl knew how to get her man's juices aflowing and it was funny to see him get riled, "where are we going, anyway?” She rubbed Ranger’s thighs and laughed when he grunted and tried [...]

    15. 4.5 starsLoved In the Fast Lane!What a fun and entertaining read. It had the perfect amount of drama and it wasn't overly done. There was just enough to keep you interested in both main characters.I enjoyed how the author developed the romance between Kerri and Ranger and how she incorporated all of the secondary characters into the storyline.Overall a good afternoon read, highly recommend In the Fast Lane!Thank you St. Martin's Press via Netgalley for the advance copy.

    16. Really loved this one! I've never read a book set in the world of racing, much less with a female driver. It was a fascinating glimpse into that world, but really the book was about family. I especially enjoyed how things played out with the hero and his father at the end.I could definitely sense some hero material brewing from the cameos of a couple of the other male drivers. Can't wait for their stories:)

    17. IN THE FAST LANE by Audra North is a fast-paced, feel-good, sexy contemporary romance about a female stock car racer and the corporate executive who takes over her family's business Hart Racing. Because Kerri Hart is a female in a male-dominated industry, the press is less concerned about her racing and more about who she's dating and what she's wearing. She objects to this double standard and rejects a sponsorship deal with Colt International because the owner Al Colt suggested that she wear li [...]

    18. Review can be read at It's About The BookI really enjoyed reading about Kerri Hart and Ranger Colt, the female Indy race car driver and the business executive who’s taken over her family’s company in this turbo-charged, hot and sexy romance. What’s not to love? You’ve got a gorgeous, accomplished woman who’s got adrenaline in her veins and a love of family in her heart clashing with an alpha man who needs control to feel alive, who’s all about the bottom line–money. Match made in h [...]

    21. *** 3.5 Stars *** In The Fast Lane by Audra North was a fun book. I thoroughly enjoyed this sweet romance.Kerri Hart is working in man’s world. She is the only rookie driver that is female. Her family is a legacy in the racing world but their team is in trouble financially. When Colt Hardware tries to buy into sponsorship for the racing team she flat out refuses because of their conditions. She is perceived by the media and fans as a hot headed woman. It is farther from the truth. She has ethi [...]

    22. *ARC provided by Publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review*In The Fast Lane is the first book in the Hard Driving racing series by new-to-me Audra North for St. Martin's Press.

    25. first off I want to apologize by judging this book from the first few pages and the use of the word sugar, I was dreading that it was going to be a pet name constantly being used but thank god it wasntybe it's just me but being an English girl I haven't come across anyone who says sugar and pulls it off so I find it a hard bug bare but anyway despite that I loved this bookom the get go I loved Kerri, she's a spunky, hard-working, loyal and family orientated girl. the whole crew and their closene [...]

    28. I received an ARC through NetGalley from St. Martin's Press for an honest review. This was a fast-paced book and great introduction for me to Audra North's writing. I follow NASCAR and I felt like she really captured the basics of stock car racing without it ever feeling like an info dump of the sport. (The jerk driver (Nolan) well, a few current drivers immediately came to mind.) Kerri was a little too alpha for me in the beginning, but that quickly changed as we saw a more human and relatable [...]

    29. In the Fast Lane is a sexy, fast paced, story about Kerri and Ranger. Kerri is a female race car driver with racing in her blood. Her family business is racing, so when Ranger comes in to run Hart Racing and save it from bankruptcy Kerri is not happy about it. Kerri has always struggled in the male dominated world of racing and the tabloids don’t make it any easier because they are more concerned with what she wears and who she is dating instead of her wins. So, when Ranger decides that they a [...]

    30. Definitely closer to three stars, but it was still just *ok*. I like racing romances and I love that the driver in this book is female, and the male is the one with no racing knowledge at all. That part worked really well, but I didn't feel like the romance had much development at all. They were attracted to one another and then all of a sudden time moved forward and they were In Love. I expected a more drawn out transition from semi-dislike to love, but this was a quick read, so the pacing suff [...]
