Author Acrostic ♥ Laura Lascarso

Start your engines…

Eighteen year-old Jesse Copeland learns of a local car race sponsored by his father’s nemesis, Shep Bradley, and the prize money might be enough to keep his family from losing their home – if he can win. Brooke, Shep’s daughter, is also aiming to compete, with or without her father’s approval. She’ll do whatever it takes to persuade Jesse to make her car race ready. Both are driven, both are risk-takers, and soon it’s more than engines getting fired up. Jesse tells himself their relationship is strictly business, until it isn’t. Can two star-crossed lovers overcome a family feud as old as Ford vs. Chevy, or will the competition become too explosive for these racing hearts?

Racing was what I knew:
Nothing else mattered, until my father’s diagnosis.
Gone—my father and my faith.

How to cope?
Then I met you.
Someone to believe in, and believe in me.

  1. I love acrostics. Lewis Carroll was big on acrostics in letters. I learned that when I read his bio with the Wonderland Tarot--see what you learn from card decks?
