4.5 stars! Full Throttle (Fast Track # ) by Erin McCarthy

As one of only two girls on the tween racing circuit, Shawn Hamby has always run with a fast crowd. But now at thirty-two, she doesn’t need to prove anything to anyone. And she definitely doesn’t need a man bossing her around off of the track…

But after a silly girls’ night at a fetish club, Shawn can’t get Rhett Ford out of her mind. He’s younger than her, and he’s her best friend’s brother-in-law, which should be red flags. Rhett is looking for someone to lead in bed, but he can’t imagine that Shawn would ever submit to him. Boldly surrendering is more her style. And with Rhett behind the wheel, it’s going to be one wild ride…

Book love, people, book effing love. Full Throttle totally had all my engines revving from the very start. A curious book club, a fetish club, accidentally getting felt up by your best friends baby brother-in-law at said fetish club (oops!). Add in a marriage of convenience and awesome characters that literally had me gigglesnorting and choking back laughs one minute and the next had me squirming because omg these two are HOT! and I was just in reader girl heaven.

So, basically, in a surprise twist from her grandfather Shawn finds out she'll only inherit the race track she runs if she gets married...within two weeks! Frustrating as hell for a fiercely independent girl used to running things her way. Determined not to lose everything she's worked for Shawn circles back to the hottie from the fetish club and makes an interesting proposition...

Rhett, Rhett, Rhett. Yeah, he's the kind of hero that makes you want to do all kinds of naughty diiirrrty  things to him, er, with him. He's super intense and confident, way dominant and just sweet and generous to top it all off. Ung. Just. So. Sexy. And Shawn is pretty great too. She's a bit of a tom boy, can hold her own in the male dominated world of race car driving and manages to get herself in all kinds of make you shake your head hilarious situations.

So the steamy bits. Whoboy! *fans self* Rhett. Damn all that dominant and intense-ness he's rocking definitely applies to the bedroom. Gah it was just sooo good! The two were passionate and sexy and nicely adventurous in the bedroom. Things have a luscious edge because of his dominance that totaly worked for me and had me catching my breath a time or two. There are some pretty funny moments too though...
He almost lost the pillow to her nimble fingers but he clamped down harder on it and raised it high above his head so that she had to stretch for it.

"Oh!" She glared at him in frustration, but there was a definite twinkle in her eye.

Then she did something he never in a million years would have predicted. Nor was he at all prepared for it. She reached out with her left hand and stroked right across the front of his boxers, down the length of his cock.

He was so shocked that he loosened his grip on the pillow. Which she snagged and then scooted backward on the bed, laughing, removing her hand from his erection.

Rhett was stunned. and turned on. and filled with a new respect for her quick thinking.
I really loved seeing their relationship change from a marriage of convenience to something more. These two really get each other even if it scares the shit out of them and are just absolutely perfect for each other. It's a bumpy ride sometimes but it's an amazing one too that had me smiling, tearing up and when it got rough lordy had me wanting to shake them too. There are some moments between them when they're just being flat out open and honest with each other and risking it all that the emotional tension and sweetness of it had me holding my breath. It was really just excellent.

McCarthy nailed all of the things I love in a read. Awesome characters with stellar chemistry, a little bit of drama and a meddling family, toe curling steamy bits that have me fanning myself and just a really remarkable romance and hilarious situations. I just love her humor and had a blast with Full Throttle. Definitely one to check out.
