Series Sunday - Fast Track by Erin McCarthy
The Fast Track Series by Erin McCarthy revolves around NASCAR and their sexy drivers. I'll admit when I first heard about this series, I was turned off by the fact it revolved around NASCAR. To me it is a redneck sport and I don't find anything remotely sexy about it. I usually picture guys with that hold two cans of beer with straws that run down the side of their faces and into their mouths. It's not a pretty sight, that's for sure.
Then when the first book Flat-Out Sexy started getting positive reviews in the blogosphere, my interest was piqued. Could I set aside my preconceived notions about NASCAR? Yes, I am excited to say that I can!
This series is straight contemporary romance and is very sexy, bordering on being erotic romance. McCarthy is known for her great characters and fabulous dialogue which come alive through her use of humor. Each book has a different male and female protagonist with it's own romantic conclusion. These books do not need to be read in order. There isn't a connecting plot, other than the characters reappearing in other the books in the series.
Erin announced last month in a post on her Facebook page that she has extended her contract for three more books! She stated that now Elec's brother and sister can get their own books too. Congratulations Erin!
Series Reading Order:
1. Flat-Out Sexy (Tamara and Elec)
2. Hard and Fast (Imogen and Ty)
