      It's "Love in the Fast Lane"I rarely read M/M books with sports-theme; not because I don't want to, just that I rarely do. So, first of all, it's nice to read a story in the backdrop of car racing. I think Ms. Tachna makes a wonderful description about what happens behind; I enjoy the explanation of preparation and the "secret tool" in terms of what is under the hood. As for the two MCs, I have an impression first that Daniel is the more fiery one, a hot-tempered racer, maybe because the first w [...]

      Ce livre m’a été offert par une auteure adorable sur le dernier Salon du livre, je connaissais la plume d’Ariel Tachna pour son excellente série paranormale « Partnership in Blood », mais je ne l’avais jamais lue en romance contemporaine, chose faite. C’est une histoire adorable, simple dans sa trame, sans vraiment de rebondissements, mais un couple sympathique et puis on ressent vraiment l’amour et la connaissance du français et de la France de l’auteure. C’est également un [...]

      Magnifique découverte! Je ne m’attendais pas à tomber sous le charme de cette histoire.Cela se passe dans le monde sportif, dans l’univers des rallyes! Je ne suis pas trop pour ce sport mais le titre m’a intrigué puis le résumé. Je profite d’une promotion de Juno Publishing pour me le procurer et là… BAM… L’histoire est fluide, les personnages sont très attachants et même pour une novice comme moi dans les rallyes bah je tombe sous le charme. Bon c’est sur qu’il y a pas [...]

      Enfin un livre qui parle du milieu automobile. Chose rare pour ma part vu que je ne suis pas fan de course, de voiture etc…Un roman qui est tout en description, en terme technique un peu trop ? J’avoue que certain passage m’on parut un peu long justement à cause de cela.Essentiellement venant de la sœur d’Éric. Bon me direz-vous c’est un peu normal vu que c’est son métier et elle est passionné par ce qu’elle fait. Mais pour moi elle était trop présente au détriment de nos [...]

      J'ai pris ce livre au SDL parce que bon, ça parle de courses automobiles, et donc je ne pouvais pas passer à côté même si on ne m'avait pas spécialement beaucoup encouragée à le lire, primo parce que je suis une lectrice difficile, deuxio parce que je suis une vraie fan de courses et donc le mélange aurait pu être explosif en cas de déception, comme ce fut le cas pour "Fast" où sérieusement, les choses étaient diablement nulles pour être polie.Mais ici, je salue vraiment le travai [...]

      Ariel Tachna has the skill to write out-of-ordinary love stories (like her Partnership in Blood series) but also very ordinary “extraordinary” love stories like this one: Overdrive is set in the World Championship Rally world, that is a little less shining than the F1 circuit, but is still a “public” setting; nevertheless, this is a behind the scene story, about very ordinary guys falling in love and having to face the common step by step routine to build a long-term relationship. Daniel [...]

      Gentlemen start your engines! It's time for racing! If you haven't read Overdrive by Ariel Tachna, you absolutely need to. I completely recommend this read. This is my first story by Ms. Tachna. I've read reviews of her other work and was intrigued. Then I saw she'd written a novel about racing. Got me right there. But this book isn't just a bunch of race lingo and confusing terminology. Nope. It's more than that. Ms. Tachna writes in a fluid manner that drew me in right away. I couldn't put the [...]

      Rally driver mixes work and sex with his co-driver. What could have mess up with their career ends up being the best thing both professionally and personally. One of the reasons I loved this books was all the information about the Rally world. It was well described, from the car modification to the training, racing and after-race partying. The emphasis was on the importance of a good work relationship between the driver and the co-driver, especially the mutual trust needed to make it work. After [...]

      I really enjoyed this book that had interesting characters and a great love story. You are exposed to the world of Rally car driving that the author put great detail into but didn't feel like an info dump. It was weird at first realizing that the MCs, Daniel and Frank were speaking French throughout the story but everything is written in English. I liked how the author put these two men together and had a slow build-up to their relationship instead of just hopping into bed. But I do have to say [...]

      This was such an enjoyable read! First, it's about Rally Racing, what's not to love. The author does a great job of immersing you in the world of Rally without overwhelming you. This part of her world building really allows the bridge of commonality between Frank and Danieley share a passion and you begin to share it as well.Second, there is a lot of work put into building the friendship between Daniel and Frank and I really enjoyed seeing them become friends first. This just made everything swe [...]

      Daniel was such an interesting character. I enjoyed experiencing a bit of the world of rally car racing (in this book). I found myself pleasantly engaged as the characters' lives and relationship unfolded along with the rally. The rally provided a different and uncommon yet welcome context. Daniel and Frank were a really nice match. I would be interested to see what happens next and how their lives together move forward

    12. Nicole on said:

      Loved this story. The only thing that threw me occasionally was the switching between English and French. I understood that the MCs were speaking French (even though it was written in English), so when French phrases (written in French) appeared throughout the text, it pulled me out of the story (especially because they weren't translated and I spent a lot of time looking up what they meant). Aside from that, the story was lovely!

    13. Bookbee on said:

      This was a well written, informative and interesting book. It gave me a little insight into the world of car rallies that I had never been exposed to before. The characters were well-realized and interesting. That being said, there was a certain 'je ne sais quoi' that was missing for me. The characters were definitely likeable but they didn't grab my heart.

    14. GlamLawyer on said:

      I really liked the beginning of the story. The tension, the friendship, the lust But sadly the tension didn't lead to a relationship I expected. I missed passion and depth. It was still enjoyable just not what I hoped it would be.

    15. FloJ on said:

      I enjoyed this one.a small element of suspense, just enough to give it a lift.HEA with likeable characters you can imagine driving off into the sunset.Might even feel inclined to read the M/F story just waiting in the wings.

      I think the author is a thorough writer. This book was a easy read, but it wasn't a simple read if you get my drift. I can't say I related to the characters, but I enjoyed learning about racing cars overseas.

      The racing facts were done very well. I dont follow the sport to check for 100% accuracy but from what I know it was good. Nice sweet angst free romance. 3.75
