Resistance is futile!

Serena Scott knows that Finn St George is trouble with a capital ‘T’. Gorgeous? Yes. World-class racing driver? Yes. Shameless Lothario bent on self-destruction? Definitely! But Finn has finally caused one scandal too many – and Serena is charged with getting him back on track!

Finn loves his playboy lifestyle – after all, immersing yourself in beautiful women is much more pleasurable than raking over the bitter truths of the past. Serena’s unheard-of and infuriating resistance to his charms begins a battle of wills. Can she tame this bad-boy? Or will Serena become entangled in the sensual power of his hedonistic temptation?

‘Feisty and fantastic! Full of sass and sexiness, I loved this book!’ – Dawn, 43, Littleton

Rating By ,27/02/2014

Fast paced, full of sizzling scenes, unbeatable dialogue which brings about a smile on one's face and keeps the reader on tenterhooks as to what will unfold next! A feel good factor is what you get at the end of the story. A must read for those who have despaired of finding love!

Pleasant enough

Rating By R,21/02/2014

The plot of world class racing drivers has now appeared several times in the recent past and while it is not one which overly appeals to me In this case it is skilfully used as a background but does not pervade the whole story which is the main point in its favour. Both Finn and Serena were colourful characters although I couldn't fully relate to them both and to some extent I felt that the plot wasn't totally fresh. While it was a pleasant enough read I did feel at the end as if there was just that vitasl something missing. Six out of ten.

With this book the author ripped my heart to shreds so badly, I felt more than just torn up a little, and then she so beautifully put it back together again. The read tells of Serena, always known as one of the boys on her father's Formula 1 team, she has learnt to hide her feelings by plastering on a smile, hiding her femininity behind biker boots, jeans and funny t-shrits. Suck it up, get going and always remember boys don't cry. With this go getting, never mess with me , you can't make me cry attitude she is the perfect candidate to tame the team's number one driver. But when facing Finn and his I'll make your engine purr all night long smile she realizes it is going to take a whole more than playing the boss's daughter card to bring this man around to her way of thinking. Underneath the sexier than sin body and killer I can see into your soul eyes, lies a man in pain, if only she can find out why, but as hot as the man is in bed and as fast, furious and reckless as he is on the track, he is also as closed up when she gets too close to the truth. The character of Serena was amazing. This woman has been through so much pain and heartache in her life, yet she keeps coming back ready to fight the next battle. But as strong and tough as she tries to be, there is still that little part of her that remains just a girl, that wants to be loved, feel beautiful and protected. Through this character the author showed me that all of us can try and keep up a tougher than nails mask, but in the end there is always a part of us that needs to cry, and let it all out. You cannot keep it all bottled up it will eat you alive from the inside. It will make you stronger but it will never allow you to heal, crying is the best form to letting go. And being just yourself, in all your very own unique glory will never make you weak it will show you as stronger than you have ever been before. The character of Finn , oh my, this man was all kinds of perfection! A bad ass, to die for sexy racing driver with a secret that made him all the more delicious, I could not have been more thrilled ! The author entrapped me with the character over and over again. His fearless death come get me attitude broke my heart, and all I wanted to do was wrap him up and make it all go away. His sense of duty to protect Serena against his darkness was so exquisite, that it really tore my soul to pieces. Through his character the author showed that even when we feel we are upholding the insane notion that we are protecting the ones we love by steering them away from us, it is never what is needed. As the saying goes, the truth shall set you free. The entire read was full of blazing hot passion, stunning conflict that made me leap from my chair and yell out for these two to please let it all out! Such extreme emotion and a true romantic rush. I could feel the adrenalin coursing through my veins on and off the track, I heard the crowd crying out for their hero and tasted the victory of the race and the long road to love and freedom. I am taking away a message of life has no limits when it sends you for the ride of your life, but when we allow a " I lost the race" attitude to take over our souls and fester into a deep and dark monster controlling our every move, it will eventually lead to our light dying out and all that will be left is a hollow empty worthless victory of shame and despair. You cannot change the past, but you can always try to fight for a better tomorrow. I highly recommend this read for all romance fans that love a feisty stand up for myself heroine, a dark and mysterious sexy bad ass hero, fast cars and mind blowing adrenaline rushes. Definitely the sexiest, most addicting adrenalin infused Harlequin presents I have ever read! 5/5 Star review " He races towards death, she fights to let him live"

Hot enough to sizzle the pages!

Hang onto your seat because this is one emotional scorching hot wild ride! Loved it!

Highly intriguing and passionate. Certainly not your standard fare.

Rating By ,04/02/2014

A complex, exceptionally well written Modern set in the glamorous world of F1, with two unique characters and a plot layered with intrigue and evocative sensuality. I could actually see this as a fast action movie with a dark undercurrent, which is exactly how it felt to read it. The writing was beautiful and so powerful that many times I felt knotted with apprehension for what would come next. Kudos to the author for creating such emotional power in a relatively small book, JB.

Fantastic read

And I must say Victoria Parker has well and truly exceeded my expectations. I thought this book was beautifully written, with a very heart felt roller coster of emotion.

not my fav MB book

the book is quite repetitive and i find the whole story line to be quite dragging.

Perfect.

Rating By Michelle,04/02/2014

Victoria Parker is hands-down one of my favourite authors. I loved both her previous two Moderns and this one did NOT disappoint. Finn is a man you can't help fall in love with - very troubled and damaged but someone you know would walk over hot coals for you if he loved you. And Serena? Serena is the best kind of heroine - feisty with a hint of vulnerability. These two spark off each other in every way. A very sexy and passionate read with huge dollops of wit and glamour. Perfect.

Spectacular!

Rating By Helen,03/02/2014

This was fifty shades of awesome! Sexy and sassy and humourous one minute then tender and beautiful and heart breaking the next. Finn......OMG Finn! There is something about this authors heroes that get me straight in the heart. He was witty and naughty and the repartee was laugh out loud but underneath he was so tortured and dark and damaged and I cried for him, my god did I cry at the 'everything is lost' moment at the end. I loved serena too, a fantastic departure from the standard M&B heroine, i thought she was brave and fascinating to read about. What a couple they made!. I don't want to give anything away because I think the tenseness of the story was huge bonus but I have got to say this is not one to be missed. Probably my favourite Modern in years. Just fantastic!

slow read

It was kinda boring and kinda slow read

Fabulous Read!

Rating By Nina,01/02/2014

This is Parkers third book and my favourite to date (and given I how much I loved her first two that is saying something). The writing is Parker at her evocative best; she weaves a story of emotion and passion, interweaves dark and light and brings to life to two truly compelling characters. Finn is the hero of all heros; a man who you know would protect you with his life and more. He is so troubled and so understandably flawed that he wrenches your heart even as you fall irrevocably for him. Serena is his perfect mate; she combines feistiness and vulnerability and evoked both my admiration and my liking. She truly is the the only woman who could tame Finn. I don’t want to give away the story line but it is a page turner that enthrals and absorbs. Parker has written a glamorous setting that transports you to the world of racing and keeps you teetering on the very edge of your seat, willing that somehow Finn and Serena will heal each other and reach their happy ever after. I strongly recommend this book and if I could give it more than 5 stars I would.
