A LONG, HARD RIDE - Alison Kent

A Long, Hard Ride for me was just that, an incredible reading journey about a small town in Tennessee with a fabulous cast of characters. It was one of those books that once you started you couldn't put it down. However, what I loved about the book was how the author Alison Kent not only had a fabulous hero and heroine, she incorporated two families with a feud and secrets plus added to the mix, interesting Dahlia citizens like Trey's best friend and others who grew up with them in Tennessee.

Trey is one hot man who needs to return to the town where he grew up to put closure to his father's death, fix up and sell the house and find out why his father had problems and the secret only one person can reveal. That man is the grandfather of the woman he lusted after in his youth Cardin Worth. At a race where Trey's crew are racing, Cardin approaches Trey and stirs up all kinds of emotions.

Cardin presents Trey with plan. A plan which involves lying to her family and the entire town, telling all they are engaged! Her parents are barely speaking and living apart due to the fact that Trey's father and her grandfather got into a fight in which her dad broke it up and ended the the hospital with serious injuries. The only person who holds the answers is her grandfather and both Cardin and Trey are anxious to find out the truth. Cardin is hopeful that her parents will starting talking and solve their problems because they won't want her to marry Trey.

This was such a fun, amusing, sexy and sensual story that will certainly rev up any one's heart who reads this racing story. It's about coming to terms with the past and second chances. However, it also poses a question to the reader and makes one wonder what they would have done? If something were revealed to you, something so terrible, what would you do? Would you keep the secret safe or would you report it to the proper authorities? You'll just have to read A Long, Hard Ride to find out the answer.

Book Description:

Fast Cars. Sizzling Sex.
This is her kind of race!

Cardin Worth is ready to tune up her engine—with Trey, her former crush! However, he’s a Davis—one of her car-racing family’s bitter rivals. But she might be able to create peace, and also get some sizzling sex on the side…

… if Trey pretends to be her fiancĂ©, that is!

Having a little fun on those steamy Southern nights seems like a great idea. Just to patch up the feud, of course. Then Trey’ll be leaving town again—this time for good.

But Cardin s not sure she can relinquish the superheated sex… Because Trey s the most talented, uh, mechanic to ever look under her hood!

From 0–60: Going from “Hello” to “How was it?” doesn’t have to take long!
