She finished fourth overall last season and is planning on knocking off Rory Canyon from the number three spot this season. But there is a problem, her sponsor Revved & Ready thinks she is too much of a tomboy and is thinking of dropping her unless she becomes more of a woman. They want her to be a woman her female fans can look up to. They only see her in baseball caps eating junk food and looking like a grease monkey. It’s time for her to have a fun identity makeover. The sponsor wants her to look more ladylike and wear more up to date clothes and look happy. In all the pictures she always looks focused and pissed off. When her sister Riley tells her this she gets a weird look on her face and asks her sister what is going to happen is she says no. Riley says she would say hello to her little friend and shows her a tazer.
The next morning they go to the Image consultant the sponsor has set up for them. They are to go over everything that needs to be done. The consultant explains that a makeover has been scheduled. It’s explained that the appointments are booked with the best and if the appointments are rescheduled they will have to be with the next best ones on the list.

Kimberly Raye is a wonderful author. Her stories are full of action and romance. She brings you right into the middle of the story and shows you how both the hero and heroine feel. You will not want to put this book down until you finish it. The book encompasses the whole concept of love in the fast lane. Romance runs to the finish line and this is another for the keeper shelf.
Book Blurb for Slippery When Wet
Jaycee Anderson is the first female to take the NASCAR Sprint Cup circuit by storm, and after finishing fourth overall last season, she has her eyes on the prize: knocking Rory Canyon out of the number three spot. She’ll do anything to see the job done, too, even transform herself from a tomboy into a glamour queen if that’s what it takes to get sponsorship and the edge. Rory’s the kind of infuriating chauvinist who’s just begging to get the pants beat off him by a woman—on the track, at least; Jaycee’s fairly sure he’s never had to beg anywhere else. Not with the millions of female fans who buy his shirts and caps and posters. Rory’s just the type who gets Jaycee’s own pistons pumping, her wheels spinning, and her engine burning oil. With their past, she’s surprised they haven’t already seen a smashup that ended in flames. But this track they’re running has some deadly curves…and it’s getting more slippery by the minute.
