Frankie Jensen works hard. She’s clawed her way up to become the car chief for the Cummings Racing pit crew, but none of that matters when her boss doesn’t even know her name. She refuses to let people take advantage of her. Quitting is her only option, but there was one thing she didn’t factor in.
Brooks Cummings always wins.
Whether it’s on the track or in life, Brooks knows what he wants, and he’s not afraid to fight for it. After a near miss with a wrench to the head, Brooks knows he should wash his hands of the rebellious car chief, but he can’t seem to let her go.
Racers strive for a holeshot on the track, but Brooks wants one when it comes to her. First over the finish line and first to Frankie’s heart.

Review:

Frankie has got to be one of the most stubborn women that I have read. She fights everyone and needs to do everything her way. I liked that she stood up for herself, however sometimes you do need help. Brookes is such a sweetheart once that rough exterior is brought down. The connection with Frankie is incredible. He doesn't understand and just needs to be with her. These two away from the shop were what got to my heart, they take care of each other, listen to each other, and eventually love each other.

Title: Test
Series: A Gentry Generations Story
Author: Cora Brent
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 27, 2018
PAIGE
He seems like nothing but arrogance with a beer in one hand and some clueless girl in the other. I can read Derek Gentry like he’s a neon sign that says ‘I AM A TERRIBLE IDEA.’
And I’m not tempted, no matter how hot he is.
I’ve heard the rumors. I know his story.
But I’ve got my own scars. I don’t need his.
Despite his muscled, blue-eyed Adonis kind of staggering good looks, he’s heartbreak wrapped in a seductive package.
However I never planned on falling into his arms on the worst night of my life.
I never planned on initiating a chain reaction of events that neither of us saw coming.
And I never planned on needing him so much I can hardly stand it. 
DEREK
Everyone has a history.
Mine’s a little worse than most.
I’ve hurt my family. I’ve hurt people I never knew. I’ve hurt myself.
And I’ve been hiding at the bottom of a bottle for so long I’m not sure how to do things differently.
Paige always struck me as the sort of uptight girl who would never give anyone a break. Little did I know what kind of mysteries she’s been keeping inside. Now I can’t get her out of my head.
We could help each other.
Or we could destroy each other.
Right now it’s anyone’s guess…
Review:
I loved Derek and Paige. I loved that connection they felt. I loved that Derek didn't have a clue why he was drawn to her but he was willing to keep it up to see what the end results would be. I loved that they both needed each other for support. I loved that they needed to be strong individually to make the couple work. Cora takes you through all of this, she will pull every string there is and make you feel. 
Having the Gentry Clan within the story was amazing. We were able to see more of Derek's brothers and I am wondering if a story will develop with a pretty nurse aide. 
As always I cannot wait until the next. 



I flushed and tried to choke out a laugh. “It’s funny how I can’t seem to stop embarrassing myself in front of you.” Derek shook his head like he thought I was being ridiculous. “Stop being embarrassed.” He started moving the piles of cassettes over to the desk and then switched off the power button on the stereo. I had no idea why. Maybe he was just trying to help clean up. Then he got on the bed beside me, stretched out and extended his arm. “Come here,” he whispered. I obeyed. Slowly, because I wasn’t sure what he had in mind. But Derek wasn’t after sex. He didn’t touch me while I got comfortable. Settling against his strong body seemed like the most natural act in the world. It didn’t feel dirty or even erotic. He switched off the bedside lamp, wrapped his arms around me and let me fall asleep with my cheek next to his beating heart. And there I slept all night, more soundly than I thought possible...
Cora Brent was born in a cold climate and escaped as soon as it was legally possible. Now, she lives in the desert with her husband, two kids and a prickly pear cactus she has affectionately named ‘Spot’. Cora’s closet is filled with boxes of unfinished stories that date back her 1980’s childhood and all her life she has dreamed of being an author. Amazingly, she is now a New York Times and USA Today bestselling writer of contemporary romance and begs not to be awakened from this dream.
