Racer, an all-new standalone in the Real Series from New York Times bestselling author Katy Evans is coming September 28th!!! 

A bad boy with something to prove. 

A woman with a mission. 
The race of their lives. 
The love of a lifetime. 

I don’t think his parents expected him to live up to his name—Racer Tate—but once he felt the adrenaline rush behind the wheel, he was addicted. 

He's the fastest, fiercest driver around. 

Scouting new talent brings me to his doorstep... 
but his smile sends me to my knees. 

The sexy, mysterious Racer Tate is not the kind of man a girl like me falls for. He's secretive, reckless, elusive. But his proximity pushes me beyond reason, and his kiss.... 

This is our last chance to win, and he is our only hope. I'm supposed to watch him—make sure he doesn't get into trouble. But it's an impossible task. And now the one in heart wrenching, toe-curling, soul-crushing trouble is me. Because when your heart belongs to someone, their truths become your own, and their secrets become your salvation...or your curse. 

He says he wants me. He says I'm the One. But he also thinks he'll break my heart, one piece at a time until it's gone.

I’m still reeling. While people approach him, he cuts a path straight to me, his gaze penetrating and target-like; making me want to bolt. 

His lips do that little upward tilt they do that seems so sexy, and for a second, I feel like I’m lightheaded. 

I gulp, and then feel mad at myself for acting like some idiot as fucking devil-Racer Tate reaches me, throws himself into a seat next to me, and turns to look at me expectantly with the most gorgeous grin on his face. 

I don’t know what to say. 

This guy has left me sort of speechless. 

“So … ” I say, staring in the distance at his beat-up mustang, then at him. 

“So … ” he says too, in his deep voice, his smile a little more wicked than it was two seconds ago. He glances at my mouth. 

Oh god. 

Why am I licking my lips? 

It only made his eyes narrow and darken. 

I open my mouth to speak, failing to find words. He smells like sweat and soap and shampoo, and I feel my traitorous nipples push up to my top again. Why do they do that when he’s around? 

“This is illegal,” I state. 

His voice is husky from exertion, and his eyes glint with laughter. “That’s why it’s fun.” I look away from his eyes, trying to focus and clear my head. He leans over and peers into my face, his face shadowed by the moonlight and his jaw now carrying a little scruff. “Are we in agreement?” he presses. 

“No.” I glare and shake my head, meeting his cocky gaze. “You’re reckless, Racer.” 

“So are you, Alana.” 

“It’s just … Lana.” 

His brows fly up in surprise. “And a bit of a liar too.” 

I purse my lips, still glaring as my gaze goes back to his car. Girls are rubbing against it as if it were him, and I find it disgusting. Why are women always acting so slutty around race car drivers and bad boys? 

“You crashed your car,” I say flippantly. 

“You crashed my car,” he contradicts, amused. 

I laugh, then scowl in his direction. “You crashed it more. I can’t believe you were making such a fuss about me crashing into you when it was just a little kiss—” 

He leans in to peck my lips—fast but firmly. “That’s a kiss.” 

I lose my breath. 

My eyes wide. 

He eases back, lips smiling as he comes to his feet and stretches his hand out to take me by the elbow and help me to my feet. 

“Let’s get out of here.” He starts walking, leading the way.  

“And go where?” 

“Anywhere I can get my hands on you.”


When I read the announcement that Katy Evans was writing a book for Brooke and Remy's son, I was over the moon excited by the news. This couple owned every single piece of my heart when I read their journey and they still are in my top five favorite couple list. They became more than just characters to me. Each one of their appearance in one of the following book from the Real Series put a huge smile on my face. I knew without a doubt that if Racer would be the main character in this book, mom and dad would be close by ;)

Lana is about to risk it all to save the HW Racing Team. Her family's racing team needs a driver. She wants to prove to all the teams that they still have what it takes to stay in the competition. Racer Tate is not following his father's footsteps. Racing is in his blood.  Not fighting. He might be an illegal street racer, but he's about to show Lana that she made the right decision when she asked him to be their driver. Lana and Racer are about to embark on an intense journey that will bring them around the world. The last thing she expected was for Racer to turn her world upside down. What will happen when the F1 season comes to an end?

Lana and Racer had an amazing chemistry. Racer is just like his dad when it comes to loving someone with intensity and passion. Their journey was filled with sexy, ardent, consuming, emotional moments. I loved seeing how Lana took care of the family business. She might be only twenty-two, but her determination to push her team to the top is admirable. It was fascinating to see Racer in his own world. He grew up around fighters so it was a big step for him to take the decision to go into racing. Both these characters had personal struggles to overcome and I loved how they confided in each other. 

I really enjoyed catching up with the cast of the Real Series. I love when an author gives us this little gift. We always wonder how our favorite characters are doing. By getting news from them, it makes me want to read this series all over again. Remy was my first book boyfriend and he will always hold a special place in my heart. Racer stole a piece my heart just like his father did. I loved to follow him on his life journey and how he made it his own. This was a fantastic reading journey that made my heart happy! This book can be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend every single book of the Real Series. They are PHENOMENAL!


I give, Racer, by Katy Evans, 4.5 intense, passionate, sexy,  adrenaline rush stars!
