More About This Book

Overview

All his life, French racer Daniel Leroux has dreamed of one thing: winning the World Rally Championship. To do that, he needs a co-driver he can trust. If only he could find one?. At the end of a disastrous season, Daniel's manager replaces his incompetent co-driver with Frank Dufour, a young Canadian whose rally team let him go because he was gay. Daniel's in heaven, thinking he might find more than just a teammate, but his manager puts the brakes on, declaring Frank firmly off limits. Frank isn't any more ready to risk his second--and last--chance at making it in the WRC, no matter how attractive he finds Daniel. Sex and cars don't mix. Amidst a bitter rivalry with another driver, sabotage attempts, extreme weather conditions, and the stress of racing, Daniel and Frank forge a partnership that defies the odds, but just as things start to heat up between them, a family emergency calls Frank away. Will they find their way back together or will the separation and the spotlight be too much for their fledgling love to survive?

    Great Read

    Gentlemen start your engines! It's time for racing! If you haven't read Overdrive by Ariel Tachna, you absolutely need to. I completely recommend this read.

    This is my first story by Ms. Tachna. I've read reviews of her other work and was intrigued. Then I saw she'd written a novel about racing. Got me right there. But this book isn't just a bunch of race lingo and confusing terminology. Nope. It's more than that. Ms. Tachna writes in a fluid manner that drew me in right away. I couldn't put the book down. It was like I was right there with Daniel and Frank, trying to figure out what to do with the emotions swirling between them. I cried, laughed, and wanted to know more.

    The thing about the book, really, is that it's realistic. As I've said, it's not a overwhelming view of racing. No, Rally isn't Indy cars and it's not NASCAR, but if you like racing, it adds an extra kick. But I was talking about realism. I got to know Frank and Daniel as people. I saw them as something more than cardboard cutouts of race car drivers. In a lot of sport themed books, that extact thing happens. The character is defined by the sport. Not so in this book.

    I loved the ache between them. No, not an injury, but the desire they have for each other. Ms. Tachna wrote their struggles and tribulations with a tenderness that I want to read more of. I've put Ms. Tachna on my auto-buy list. The book isn't terribly long, but enough to really get to know the characters. The love scenes steam and I needed a fan to cool me down.

    If you want a story that's got a little racing, a lot of hot guy on guy loving, and a storyline to break your heart in a good way, then you need to read Overdrive.
