Charles Worthington was once the best driver in Formula One…until the lifestyle took over. Now, fresh out of rehab, he’s ready to take back his crown. Then he meets new teammate and handsome Brazilian, Luis Salvatore.
Despite being a famous womaniser, Charles has always had an eye for an attractive male. This time it’s different—Luis has the most profound effect on him. Being sober changes everything.
But in Formula One, teammates are also rivals and Luis’ contract is up for renewal. Only the number one podium will do.
Bitter rivalry and animal lust are an explosive combination. Will this get them both to the chequered flag?
“Are you okay?” Luis asked.
Charles sighed. “Sorry. I’m a bit nervous, I guess.”
The laughter that came from Luis made Charles jump. “What?” He frowned.
“You’re Charles Worthington,” Luis explained. “Nothing gets to you. I’ve watched you swagger around the world for fifteen years.”
He didn’t know if Luis was mocking him or not. He didn’t like it. “I’m not sure if you got the memo,” he muttered. “There’s new management in town.”
The jovial expression dropped from Luis’ face. “I’m sorry, Charles. I didn’t mean to laugh. Of course I know how the last few years have been for you. Damn, we seem to have a habit of saying the wrong things.”
He sipped his coffee thoughtfully. Charles breathed a sigh of relief that he didn’t grimace after.
“I think we’re being too careful around each other,” Charles declared.
“Too careful?” Luis replied, shocked.
“Yes,” Charles continued. “I really want this to work. Meera and Barnaby have taken a chance on me, and I want to repay them. You have contract negotiations this year.”
He noticed Luis bristle at this, but it wasn’t a secret.
“And you think we’re trying to be sickly sweet to make it happen?” Luis considered this. “Well, we’ve made a right fuck-up of that.”
I have written for as long as I could write. In fact, before, when I would dictate to my auntie. I love to read, and I love to create worlds and characters.
I live in the English countryside. When I’m not writing, I like to get out there and think through the next scenario I’m going to throw my characters into.
Inspiration can be found anywhere, on a train, in a restaurant or in an office. I am always in search of the next character to find love in one of my stories. In a world of apps and online dating, it is important to remember love can be found when you least expect it.
