An experiment in romance?

New to Charlotte, stock car racing country, graduate student Imogen Wilson meets Ty McCordle, a driver who inexplicably has her pulse racing. After an encounter at the track with a woman whose main goal in life is to marry a driver, Imogen realizes she's hit on the perfect thesis for her Sociology degree. If she follows The Rules on how to get a man, can she steer her way to into the hearts of the drivers and establish their dating--and mating--patterns?

That's testing the limits of passion.

Although sexy and reckless Ty is the ideal test subject, she knows she can't pursue him for the sake of science. Yet he's the one who's chasing after her, and Imogen realizes that she actually wants to be caught. A southern gentleman like Ty won't fail to disappoint, will satisfy all her curiosity--and make all the risks worthwhile.

Two laugh-out-loud characters with flaming chemistry and a sense of adventure come together in this fast paced tale of first love.

Imogen Wilson has been hot for Ty McCordle since they met at a dinner party. She's a graduate student of sociology and he is a playboy race car driver. With what looks like nothing in common, she blames her libido for her infatuation, one Ty finds himself returning in spades.

Ty is an alpha male with a sense of adventure and a love for the outdoors. I enjoyed going along for the ride as Ty showed NYC girl Imogen the paradise that lay outside the city. Her brutal honesty was funny and endearing. It provided a great opportunity to get to know Imogen and the way she thinks. Ty's response to her was charming and I could feel the two clicking together like a perfect match.

There is so much to these two characters and this wonderful story of two people who see themselves lacking in different ways and yet find acceptance in each other. There is so much that I want to blather on about, but I don't want to spoil the unfolding for readers. Suffice it to say that I got to know their deep dark secrets and it made even playboy Ty endearing.

The entire back up cast from book one, Flat-Out Sexy, came together in this book again. Elec and Tamara are married. Suzanne is falling apart as she looks to returning to her old career. Evan actually spends this tale waiting for Ty to fail so he can swoop in and grab Imogen for himself. And Ryder is still the even-tempered pal they all lean on. There are plenty of set up dynamics for the next book… and I just can't wait to find out what happens with them all.

It's fast-paced, funny and once again, toe-curling sexy. How can you go wrong with fast cars, gorgeous men, intelligent funny women, and lots of sex all over the place? This one is a total treat. Like eCandy (or page candy) for the soul. Enjoy!
