Hostile new rivals and relationship power struggles cause problems between competitive bikers Javier and Glen.
When Javier and Glen’s racing teams are thrown into turmoil and their living arrangements become challenging, they struggle to handle their new situations. Javier throws himself into his work, Glen into his social life, but will their actions push them apart or bring them back together?
This is a second book in series so the relationship between Javier and Glen is established. They are relaxed and secure in each other but the relationship is still new enough they are enjoying the perks of living together. There are still some rough edges to smooth over. Since the POV switches between men it was rather interesting how differently they approach problems they face. It’s easy to slip into their heads and the characters feel familiar from the start despite the fact that this was the second book in series and I haven’t read the first. It actually serves to introduce characters successfully with their quirks and flaws. They seem to be very different men but are devoted to each other and share passion for racing.
The writing has a bit of simplistic feel but the plot and characters keep reader’s attention. The mix between plot in the racing world and romantic one is even and makes for interesting story at all times.
It’s an easy and fun read, good for spending relaxing hour or more.
