Synopsis from Goodreads:
Oncologist Brynn Douglas spent the last dozen years buried in school, patient charts, and research. But the reality of practicing medicine—at least at the prestigious Gates Institute—isn’t what she’d hoped. Then a seventy-year-old billionaire shows up in her office with an irresistible proposition: play the role of his girlfriend while secretly treating his blood cancer as they travel the F1 circuit.
When their paths collide, Maddux quickly sets his sights on Brynn. He’s used to taking what he wants, but if the media catches him romancing a seemingly taken woman, the bad press might get him fired. One complicated relationship should be more than enough for Brynn, but every time she sees the sexy Texan, their attraction burns hotter.
Falling in love on the F1 circuit is a crash course in adrenaline. Will Maddux and Brynn’s race to the finish end in a total blowout or total victory?
These two remarkably different yet still similar individuals make a stunning main couple for this novel. I appreciated how they were developed. Cross shows how your choice of career and how one’s drive to succeed directly affects all aspects of life. This gives readers a quite intense insight into the characters, allowing you to really get inside their heads. I did find myself questioning the ease at which she could forgive him after some of the accusations that he let fly, but such is love.
As a whole this was a quite intriguing read. I thoroughly enjoyed it and will be looking further into this author’s work.
