Review ~ Crossing the Line (Hard Driving, #3) by Audra North

Crossing the Line (Hard Driving, #3)
eARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: June 14th 2016

Publisher: Swerve

He wanted her the first time he saw her. It didn't matter that he was on stage in front of a room full of reporters, or that his publicist was telling him to move on, or that she was asking him a question about racing. One look at her "just been bedded" hair — completely at odds with her deliciously prim appearance — and Ty Riggs is hooked.

Corrine Bellows is one of the woefully few women in a male profession: sports reporting. In a field where "Hey, sweetheart, can you fetch me a cup of copy" is part of her job description, she's determined to keep things professional. And while interviewing Ty Riggs, the hottest new driver on and off the track, is a major scoop, Corrine knows that she is in major trouble when it becomes clear that Ty wants so much more and is determined to get it. As things heat up between them, Corrine finds herself on shakier ground. Her big secret just may destroy everything.

My Opinion

The racing theme was what drew me to this book. I'm a big fan of racing and in turn driver romances. Being from the UK, we don't have Stock Car racing so I was also intrigued to find out more about it.

Crossing the Line was a short read. Things happen very quickly and in what feels like a short space of time. In a nutshell the book centres on Cori being sent to find an exposé on Ty who's been accused of cheating to win. Cori's boss is an asshole who tells her to use any means necessary to get close to Ty and find the story.

The plot is basic, following Cori's dilemma of keeping her integrity or furthering her career by using Ty. I'm not sure what to make of the characters, though. While the book held my interest I never fully engaged or connected with them. I think this might partly be down to the length. Things happened too quickly and there wasn't that spark or slow build I like in a romance. I just wanted a little more from the characters.

Overall, it was a quick easy read. The plot is simple and it's a book you don't have too think too hard about.
