Book Review: Fast & Hard (The Fast Series)

Fast & Hard:The Fast Series-Kat Ransom


They call him the Paddock Playboy–a disgraced Formula 1 World Champion.
A tattooed bad boy with a reputation, he has a penchant for supermodels and supercars.
An alpha race car driver earning more headlines in gossip magazines than trophies.

I was hired to clean up the mess he made.
I’m his PR professional. He calls me his nanny.

I have my own problems I left behind in New York.
But I found all new ones on the race track. 

He thinks his sexy, smart mouth and bad attitude will drive me to quit, send me home packing.
He thought wrong.
He messed with the wrong woman this time.

Oh, and that sultry Scottish accent?
Definitely not falling for it… 

I know what I want, and I’m here to take it.

Too bad in F1, nothing is what it seems.

Corruption runs deep in the secretive playground for billionaires and elite athletes.
The stakes are high, everything is on the line, and sparks will fly when the lights go out.

Fast & Hard is the first enemies-to-lovers, steamy romance in The Fast Series, but can be read as a standalone. A 100K novel with a HEA that’s guaranteed to get your motor running

Fast & Hard is book 1 of 3 coming from Kat Ransom that can be read as a standalone and does not end in a cliffhanger. I don’t know about you, but my cliffhanger hangover is too long and I can’t take anymore! If you like reading about racing, steamy scenes, sassy women, then this is the book for you. Our MC, Mallory aka Mal, is a new PR for the Formula 1 (F1) racer, Lennox Gibbes. I liked how the author incorporated information about racing and what it took to be a PR. For someone who is on social media almost 24/7, I could relate to Mallory….and I definitely wouldn’t mind my own F1 racer. 😀 

Mal doesn’t want to get involved though. Oh, how you know that won’t work. It’s like saying no to a baby. It makes them want that item that much more. Same things go for you Mal. Ha, trying telling all of our MC’s no and they will do the opposite. Even if she did put up a good fight against Lennox. I liked how Mal started off feisty, strong and threw the punches right back at Lennox. He was trying to get rid of her basically the whole time because he didn’t need a babysitter. 

Mal is set to report back to her boss and make sure he is in the ‘good light’ of the media. I think she does a great job, until, dun dun dun, the drama! Little Mr. Rich boy wants what Lennox has and needs to steal Mal away. Heartbreak, drama, miscommunication, you know the drill! Mal finally gives into Lennox and oh those steamy scenes. WORTH IT! But ha, can’t keep a good thing going can we Mal? 

While the heartbreak is what we like to see, Mal turns against herself it seems. She turned meek and needy, not like the strong, feisty woman she was in the beginning. She gets it back in the end, but I want to just slap her a few times in the book! Like, Hey woman! Stay strong, you didn’t do anything wrong! I feel for Mal when it comes to her family though. Trying to please parents can be tough and you just want their approval and love. 

You know this ends in a HEA because it is a standalone, although, maybe it doesn’t? Go read it, it’s a fun, steamy book that will get your engines revved up. Get it? 😉

Sizzle Factor: 4 out of 5

I would consider this a medium-fast burn.
