He lives in the spotlight. She has to exist in the shadows.
If Formula 1 racing driver Daniel Michaud is to win the championship, he must steer clear of all distractions. However a compromising photo has his sponsor demanding that he be chaperoned for the rest of the race season. It’s bad enough a sexy advertising executive is assigned to accompany him, but then they’re joined by her adorable car-obsessed son. It’s all Daniel can do to keep his mind on the track and off the tantalizing taste of love and family that could destroy his career.
Lexy Camparelli blames the Formula 1 circus for her parents’ divorce and the obsessive eating disorder that ruined her teenage years. To keep her job, she’s forced back into that high-stakes world. At least her heart isn’t in jeopardy, given Daniel’s playboy reputation. Then she discovers the gorgeous driver’s secret and it’s a race to see if Lexy can emerge victorious or lose everything—including custody of her son.

When I began reading this book, the only thing I knew about Formula 1 racing was that my cousin used to belong to a pit crew. Ms. Adams takes the reader inside this fascinating world with her impeccable research, but that's not what I loved about the book. What got my engines going was the red-hot romance that revved up quickly and the throttle was down the whole way. I zoomed through the book, which was filled with clever analogies and torchy sex scenes. I will be reading more of this talented author's offerings.
This is the 2nd book I've read by this author and I look forward to reading more by her! You'll be amazed and glued to this story until the very end. You'll love both characters and want to root for them... And also want to smack them a time or two as well! Daniel has a reputation to uphold but who is he really? Lexy is one who cares about others more than herself. Will she choose love or convenience? The Playboy and the Single Mum is one I'd highly recommend to anyone who loves a story with fast cars and amazing sexy characters! 5 stars from me!
