Second Look: RACING HEARTS by Laura Lascarso

Only a day late, but I did manage to read Laura Lascarso’s RACING HEARTS and I wanted to write a review before the book birthday (tomorrow!).



Synopsis:  Jesse Copeland is dealing with his father’s tragic death and the mounting bills that his mother just can’t pay.  To escape, he buries himself in work at a local mechanic shop where he spends time working on racing cars.  (Before his father died, Jesse and his father loved racing and NASCAR.)  By a stroke of fate, Jesse meets Brooke, who just so happens to be the daughter of his father’s ex-best friend.  Despite the bad blood between their fathers, Jesse’s determined to get to know Brooke and spend as much time with her as possible.

Possible spoilers after the break!
