Publisher: 336LoveWhen Hana Fisher moves to the small town of Mixon, Texas to live with her dad, she dreads having to work at the boring pile of dirt he fondly calls a motocross track. But when she gets there, she finds the rinky-dink dirt bike track from her childhood has grown into the most respected racing track in the state.Now popular by association, Hana endures the pain and sweat of working in the summer heat in order to fit in with a sport she’s growing to love. She gets a real family, a best friend and not just one, but two of the fastest racers trying to win her heart.When Hana abuses her status as the track owner’s daughter to help the gorgeous Ryan Russo cheat in the biggest race of the year, she risks more than just losing her job. Every good thing in her life is at stake now- her friends, her dad’s trust, and Ash Carter- the kind-hearted racer who may not be as alluring as Ryan, but is proof that nice guys don’t always finish last
REVIEWI decided to review this book for the tour because I think motocross racers are pretty cute! I’m sure I’m not the only one, and I haven’t seen this setting used much at all, so this one really grabbed my interest.
Hana Fisher has just learned some disturbing news from her mother when she finds herself on the road to her dad’s house. A dad she hasn’t paid much attention to for the past couple of years, all because she’s finally had it with her irresponsible mother.
Luckily her father is not a jerk, in fact, he’s remarried to a nice woman and they have an adorable pre-teen son whom she loves. So Hana made the right move. She can do better than a mother who prefers to marry over and over again – and this new engagement was the straw that broke the camel’s back for Hana.
So she ends up at her father’s motocross track – which has also grown up while she was away and is now a well-respected and busy place. Being surrounded by a bunch of “muscular” guys almost drives poor Hana nuts, and it doesn’t help that the two best riders are both interested in the owner's daughter.
These two boys couldn’t be more different. Ryan is a confident player while Ash is a quiet and serious gentleman. Of course I prefer Ash! And so does Hana, except Hana hasn’t quite made up her mind what kind of girl she is just yet. Hana comes off as naive, innocent, and a little bit childish—or maybe just more like a stereotypical teen.
I enjoyed this story and while there was a love triangle, it helped that Ash was so down to Earth because he diffused much of the angst of these scenarios just by being so calm. Hana learns some lessons about life, but she also learns some lessons about herself and what’s important to her. It doesn’t look like this book is part of a series, so the ending was a bit abrupt for me. I’d like to have learned more about what happens after. But I enjoyed it and I loved the setting. The descriptions and information about the sport of motocross was sprinkled throughout the story. Not so much that I felt like someone was explaining the rules of the sport to me, just enough to let me in on what’s going on.
