High Octane: Ignited
by Rachel Cross and Ashlinn Craven

Genres: New Adult, Contemporary Romance

Everyone’s fueled by something…

Cassidy Miller was living her dreams as an EMS helicopter pilot saving lives in Arizona but it all came crashing down. Suspended from her job and desperate to escape memories of that night, she jets to Europe and is swept along on a whirlwind world tour of Formula One racing courtesy of her father, an executive sponsor of a team. The last thing she needs is to get involved with a driver, who thrives on risk.

Sexy, daredevil British driver Ronan Hawes has no room in his life for anything but winning. Strategy meetings, press conferences, practices, sponsor events, and racing consume him. Halfway through the season, he’s on track to win the Formula One World Drivers Championship—a title that has eluded him for years—and no emotionally damaged woman, felon father, rookie rival, or rumor mill are going to run him off course.

From Brussels to Abu Dhabi, Texas to Germany, their relationship speeds across the globe, navigating the dangerous turns of life, love and racing.
  I'll admit that Formula One isn't something that I know much about. But in no way did that hinder me from enjoying High Octane: Ignited! The thing that I enjoyed the most about this book (besides the amazing writing!) was that the romance was never cut and dry. There were ups and downs to it that made it seep with reality and drew me in that much more.

  The characters of Ronan and Cassidy were brilliantly done. If you're looking for Mary-Sues, you won't find them here. Cassidy was someone that I softened to immediately. Her story is heartbreaking, and I was rooting for her from the start. Like I mentioned before, their story isn't cut and dry. But it was a memorable and enjoyable one.

  The level of detail that these two authors pay to the setting and characters is outstanding. It really brought the story to life. Even if you've never heard of Formula One like me, you will love this story! It's the perfect balance of finding your own way in life and meeting the one that you can't live without!
