Daring You To Read: Stick Shift by Lissa Matthews

Posted March 1, 2012 by Shari in Meme / 5 Comments

Tynga’s Reviews has a meme that is all about sharing books you loved and think other people should read.

This is box title
An orchestra musician, a private music teacher, and a homebody, Lily’s a full-figured, quiet woman who lives a fairly simple and solitary life. Aside from music, she has one big passion: stock car racing. She’s been a fan for as long as she can remember and makes the yearly pilgrimage to Daytona as often as she can. When she’s offered a chance to get away to North Carolina and attend two weeks of races, she jumps at it. Little does she know what that chance has in store for her…

Cam Carter is one of the most successful young drivers in the top-tier of the stock car racing circuit. All over the country, he’s well known to racing fans, loved by some, respected by a few, and hated by others. He’s arrogant, strong-willed, and a consistent winner. What he doesn’t have is balance? Until he meets a pretty, very curvaceous, and unassuming fan named Lily.

Lily fears the difference in lifestyles, ages, and personalities while Cam in turn, embraces them. Can they find a way to cross the finish line and take the checkered flag together or will the obstacles push against them until they crash and burn?

Synopsis from Goodreads.com

Lissa Matthews writes romantic stories about real people. The women are usually slightly older and not stick rail thin. The men are hot and know what they like. While I am not a stock car race fan, I enjoyed reading about an unasuming woman finding love with a celebrity hot-shot and making it work in all the right ways. It’s a sexy, sweet, exciting and very loving story.

  • Okay, you got me with this dare. I do like romance novels and your snippet is very intriguing. Thanks!

    • This is a fun book to read. Lissa is an awesome author that I hope to help promote.

  • OMG–I have never heart of this author…better pull my head out of the sand…lol

    • I have been a friend of Lissa Matthew’s for about 2 years. I bought her first book and haven’t looked back. She is writing another book in this series that I can’t wait to read. Her books are about honest women who really are more round than thin, but are comfortable in their own skin. And the alpha men who love them for who they are. Love them all!

  • I will try one of her romances–I like the idea of reading about real people.
