Praise for The Finish Line…
“The Finish Line” is a fast-paced, energetic romance novel not for the faint of heart. This book makes mention of abuse, both physical and mental, but it does so in a way that is not overly descriptive. The chemistry between the two characters is sizzling hot, yet mostly held on the back-burner. Readers will take an emotional ride through the pages of this story while falling in love with not only the main characters, but the secondary characters as well. The entire novel focuses around the life of street car racers and their family atmosphere. Readers may be reluctant to choose this story if not interested in a racing storyline, but rest assured, it is well worth the time! The writing style as well as the pacing throughout the book makes this one incredible page-turner. The next book in the series will be released this summer.
4.5 Stars, Crowned Heart Review from ~ InD’Tale Magazine
THE FINISH LINE is an emotional read that will whisk your breath away. With a brushstroke of writing artistry, Leslie Scott introduces the reader to a small southern town where street racing is a way of life, a way to settle grudges, and a way to regional fame.
Jordan Slater is the current Street King of the area racing scene. Raelynn Casey is the young woman who has loved him forever. Although his feelings for her are just as strong, he fights his attraction. The ride to their HEA is just as burning hot as the practice of laying rubber before a race. I cried. I cheered. I chewed my nails and growled them both as their story of secrets and love unfolded. This debut book will touch your heart forever.
