These drivers got #swag…
Racing is in her DNA.
Right alongside money and power.
When you’re the daughter of one of the most powerful men in the country,
you have to work harder for success.
Joey Gamble’s a girl on a male-dominated track.
With a daddy who can buy whatever she wants.
But she doesn’t want anything… except to EARN her reputation.
Racing is his passion.
Trouble follows him everywhere. Some even say he invites it.
When you’re nipping at the taillights of the best driver in the new NRR,
you have to fight and claw for each and every success.
It’s never been easy for Lorhaven.
That’s why he doesn’t play by the rules.
He’s a man with a serious chip on his shoulder against the pro racing circuit.
We at GearShark want to know what’s up with that.
We’ve also been hearing rumblings…
of a pro who wants to go indie.
We’ve invited racing royalty and the driver from the wrong side of the tracks to sit down and talk to us about a possible crossover.
We expected sparks to fly when Joey and Lorhaven crossed paths.
Will those sparks ignite into a full-on inferno?
I think the real person with #Swag here is Cambria Hebert. I became a fan of Cambria after reading #Junkie. I was laid up in bed after getting my wisdom teeth removed and #Junkie somehow came my way and it was love at first chapter. Through her #Hashtag series and more I love every word Cambria types. Now onto the book.
Now it must be said that this is the third book in the GearShark series so we have seen these characters before however I feel as though this can be read as a standalone.
When we meet Lorhaven he is portrayed as an asshole and lets be honest he totally is. However, in #Swag we see a completely different side of Lorhaven a.k.a Jace. Sweet, gentle, kind, understanding, loving, and lovable. Basically everything you want in a book boyfriend.We learn about his past and more importantly why he is so rude to everyone.There’s a lot more to Lorhaven than meets the eye and I had no idea that he had so much depth to him. In the previous books we get small glimpses of his true character but it doesn’t do him justice.
Joey Gamble has had to prove herself over and over again to the male dominated racing world. The other drivers think of her as a spoiled daddy’s girl that paid her way into the sport and despite her wins is viewed as a not worthy competitor.She’s tired of having to constantly fight and defend herself.
When Joey (or Josie as Jace calls her) first meets Lorhaven, a fellow driver, she can’t stand him and for good reason. After being forced to do an interview and photoshoot with him the sparks start flying and their chemistry is simply undeniable. The heat leaps off the page (I swear I burned myself) and fast as race car I fell in love in love with Jace and Josie.
Everything Cambria writes is magic and I can’t wait for #Blur, the next book in the series. The best thing about this book is that it doesn’t end here. The next book may be about is brother, Arrow, but I know we’ll see plenty of my fave couple.
