Review -- Stick Shift by Lissa Matthews

Stick Shift by Lissa Matthews

This was a burning hot read and I loved it and Cam. Cam Carter is the man fans love to hate on the stock car racing circuit. He's conceited and cocky and he's got the talent to back up the swagger. He's young and brash and when he wants something, nothing stands in his way. And he wants shy, full-figured Lily Jackson. She thinks the decade disparity in their ages and the differences in their way of life can't be overcome. Is this a race they can win? Or will they never get past the starting line? The hero in this story is so darn appealing that I'm thinking of becoming a NASCAR fan just to find my very own arrogant hottie in a racing suit. Lily is so easy to relate to. She's just an average girl who catches the eye of a superstar. Plus it's no secret that I love my heroines on the curvy side. The chemistry between the two lead characters is amazing. I'd like to see Mickey get his own story, he only made a brief appearance but he made a huge impression. Be advised this story contains anal play and light spanking which isn't something I enjoy but the overall flow was so good I wasn't bothered by it. I highly recommend this delightful story.

An orchestra musician, a private music teacher, and a homebody, Lily’s a full-figured, quiet woman who lives a fairly simple and solitary life. Aside from music, she has one big passion: stock car racing. She’s been a fan for as long as she can remember and makes the yearly pilgrimage to Daytona as often as she can. When she’s offered a chance to get away to North Carolina and attend two weeks of races, she jumps at it. Little does she know what that chance has in store for her…

Cam Carter is one of the most successful young drivers in the top tier of the stock car racing circuit. All over the country, he’s well known to racing fans, loved by some, respected by a few, and hated by others. He’s arrogant, strong willed, and a consistent winner. What he doesn’t have is balance…until he meets a pretty, very curvaceous, and unassuming fan named Lily.

Lily fears the difference in lifestyles, ages, and personalities while Cam in turn, embraces them. Can they find a way to cross the finish line and take the checkered flag together or will the obstacles push against them until they crash and burn?
