The racetrack has been my home since I was fifteen. When I’m behind the wheel, it’s just me and the asphalt.
No stress. No worry.
No one trying to convince me I’m not worthy of my dream.
I laugh when people tell me how dangerous racing is. If they only knew my relationship was the bigger threat. The longer I stay with Daniel, the more unstable my life becomes. I’m caught between happy memories of the sweet boy I fell in love with a lifetime ago and the harsh realization that he may be gone forever.
He’s taken a lot from me over the years, and I’m not sure how much I have left to give. I can only pretend to be in a loving relationship for so long. Racing is the one thing that keeps me going.
Jackson Powell turned my dream into a reality when he signed me as a driver for Powell Racing. He understands me, he encourages me, and he helps me stand on my own. Now, Daniel is trying to take that from me too. The more he pushes me, the closer I get to my breaking point. If he succeeds, I’m uncertain I’ll be strong enough to put myself back together again.
When I signed Sawyer Stone to my racing team, I didn’t realize what I was getting myself into. She’s extremely talented, but she holds a secret that could ruin her career before it has a chance to start.
She affects me in a way I haven’t experienced in years. I need to know why she’s so guarded. What is she hiding that keeps her from letting anyone in? If I were a betting man, I would put money on her boyfriend being at the root of it all.
I didn’t like him the moment I met him. How can I make her see he’s no good for her or her career? Why is she with him? What hold does he have over her?
I’ll do anything in my power to keep her safe from him.
His money and influence will make it tough, but I have those things too. I’ll do whatever it takes to prove to her that she’s worth the fight.
