Review: Fast Track by Victoria Denault (Racing Hearts #2)

Note: An advance reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author.

Victoria Denault takes readers back to the race track with the second book in her Racing Hearts series. Fast Track turns the spotlight on Lucia Castera and Nicholas Darcy, two characters who were pretty difficult to ignore in the series starter, The Chase, which featured Frankie Castera, Lucia's older sister and the client Nick was protecting. Lucia is twenty-seven and a professional F1 driver with her family's Mirabella Racing; Nick's thirty-one and a bodyguard who was also having a secret affair with Lucia. But then she suffers a terrible accident that changes everything for both of them, leading her to push him away, and him taking on a different client. Life went on for both, but when Nick receives a frantic call from the Castera patriarch asking him to come back. It seems that Lucia has someone stalking her, and things have escalated to the point that her father trusts only Nick to keep her safe. But then who will keep Nick's heart safe from Lucia?

I've been waiting for the next book in the Racing Hearts series ever since I finished reading the first novel  in February of last year, and Lucia and Nick's story was certainly worth the wait. The tension was a palpable thing throughout the story, especially when these two main characters were in each other's company. I confess there were moments where my frustration had me sorely tempted to shake Lucia, but I empathized with her as well given that I knew keeping Nick at arm's length wasn't easy. Speaking of Nick... Le sigh. The guy was total book boyfriend material, and I liked his protective and caring nature. There was no denying just how much Lucia meant to him. From the romance to the suspense, Fast Track delivers, and it gets 4.5 stars.
