Review - "Hot Finish" by Erin McCarthy

Hot Finish
(Fast Track #3)
Publishing Date: 8/3/10
Publisher: Berkley
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Source: Library Book

Not all marriages last forever!
Suzanne Jefferson is broke, which is why she’s given up charity work for wedding planning. Fortunately, she has a high-profile client,and best of all, he’s paid in advance. There are just two teensy problems: The bride is a bona fide bridezilla, and Suzanne’s ex-husband is the best man. At least she thought he was her ex-husband!
But this one might…
Two years after their marriage fell apart, stock car race driver Ryder Jefferson still can’t stop thinking about Suzanne. Which is why he isn’t too upset that, due to a glitch, the two are still technically married. Now he’s imagining easing Suzanne’s woes by satisfying her needs in the bedroom. After all, that’s the one room they never argued in. Besides, with wedding bells ringing all around them, Ryder is wondering if,even though they’d quit the race a few laps too early,they can still come on strong with a big, romantic finish!


My Review:
I love my local library because I can reserve a book online and have it picked up the next day or two to read and now my local library has ebooks I can read on my Kindle.  =) 
My thoughts on "Hot Finish", the third book in the Fast Track Series by Erin McCarthy.  Personally, this book was not my fave.  I did not connect very well with the female character.  In fact, she drove me crazy.  I did not like Suzanne Jefferson, the previous two books and I didn't like her much in her own book.  Although, I did have sympathy for her after finding out what she has gone through.  I also liked the fact, she really did not like depending on a man to help her.  She preferred to work out everything on her own.
Although, I did enjoy Ryder Jefferson, he's Suzanne's ex-husband (well...supposedly).  Ryder is a sweetheart.  He's a stock car driver and last season, he came in second place.  He wants to do better next season...but Ryder is distracted by Suzanne. Every time he tries to be nice to Suzanne, he gets crapped on.  He didn't like seeing Suzanne suffer though and he wanted to try to help her in some way without her knowing about it.
Here's the story of these two:  Suzanne and Ryder were married, she left him because she felt he was not really into the marriage.  She felt he only married her because at the time they hooked up, she got knocked up and they had a shotgun wedding in Vegas.  Suzanne ended up having a miscarriage and she felt that Ryder really did not want to have kids after that.  He never showed emotion towards losing the baby at all.  Suzanne left after awhile because she felt it wasn't working out and he wasn't really trying.  They really never expressed on how they felt and never shared their feelings with each other.
Now...Suzanne is to plan a wedding for Niki (the most annoying female character I've ever read) and Jonas.  Ryder is the Best Man so of course Suzanne is not happy about it.  She can't stop avoiding him and he keeps throwing hints at her, he wants to hook up.
Onto...the night of passion in a car between them both.  Bam!
Further into the book, Suzanne is confused and Ryder is confused.  Suzanne keeps pushing him away.  Ryder keeps trying to express how much he still cares about her.  Suzanne has her friends telling her Ryder loves her, but of course she doesn't believe them.  Ryder has his guy pals telling him that Suzanne still shows feeling for him too and he's trying to pursue her.  On and on it goes between them both...
At the end of the book, Ryder lets Suzanne know how she feels and how he loved her from the minute he met her.  She still does not believe it until something happens which makes them finally come together.
I loved the storyline of "Hot Finish".  I fell in love with Ryder's character.  He kept trying to let Suzanne know that he was still in love with her.  Of course, it's sometime difficult for a man to do that.  Ryder kept throwing hints in the wrong way and of course Suzanne always took the wrong way.  Suzanne on the other hand was driving me friggin' crazy because she couldn't get it.  Ahhh!!
I got to read about Tammy, Elec, Ty, and Imogen again in this book.  In fact, Erin McCarthy puts you in the heads of some of the characters again.  I'm always wanting to know what happened or is happening to previous characters I've read about.  I still love Ty and Imogen the most.
I got a glimpse of who the next character is going to be...Evan.  He seems to be a playboy.  Looking forward to diving into "The Chase" next from my library.
I recommend this book to anyone who loves contemporary romance and loves reading about sexy Stock Car drivers.
