About the book

Childhood history between a race car driver and an event coordinator collide at the Indy 500. He can’t be distracted by romance. And she can’t trust love will last.

Stone Crandall wants more than anything to win the Indy 500, but as the race approaches, other things begin to distract him. Not only has his family descended on Indianapolis, but a schoolboy crush in the form of his sister’s best friend appears and changes his focus. Tara Hartman grew up with the Crandall family as her safe haven from a broken family. As an adult she’s grown a successful business planning events for major corporations. Stone’s race car team hires her for the two weeks of the big race, which is a surprise to Stone.

At the start of the activities, Tara and Stone make a pact to remain single when they discover neither of them has ever fallen in love. Then when Tara’s father and stepmother invade the festivities, along with her mother, Stone provides her a strong shoulder for comfort.

When comfort turns to passion, the two are caught in an embrace by all the parents, and Stone’s concentration on winning is all but destroyed until he tells Tara she’s a distraction. He also starts to let the attention of the media expand his ego. Tara is convinced all men are attracted by shiny objects just like her father when he left her mother for another woman. Tara ends things with Stone, just as his career soars.

Once the parents and Crandall siblings see how much the two care about one another despite their stubbornness, efforts are made to show them that love is worth the risk, no matter the outcome.

It’s up to Tara and Stone to figure out whether they want to take the leap and find out for themselves.

One of the advance reviews for the book

Anne Donaldson 5.0 out of 5 starsWhere ego meets forever August 10, 2019

Good news for readers of the other Rivals in Love books – there is finally a wedding – but no, it’s not Stone’s! In this, the third of the series, we get to know Stone as he races the Indy 500.

The race events coordinator turns out to be Tara, his oldest sister’s best friend, and he sees her in a new light – but she is a distraction from the race, as are his family who’ve descended, her family with all their tensions, and his own sudden popularity.

There is a more philosophical slant to this book, about the nature of love, of enduring love, and of relationships themselves. It was a more unsettling book for me than its predecessors were. It can easily be read as a standalone; readers of the previous books will just be revisiting old friends. I’ve binge-read the books to date; I need more!

About P.C. Zick

Bestselling author P.C. Zick describes herself as a storyteller no matter what she writes. And she writes in a variety of genres, including romance, contemporary fiction, and creative nonfiction. She’s won various awards for her essays, columns, editorials, articles, and fiction.

The three novels in her Florida Fiction Series contain stories of Florida and its people and environment, which she credits as giving her a rich base for her storytelling. She says her, “Florida’s quirky and abundant wildlife–both human and animal–supply my fiction with tales almost too weird to be believable.”

P.C. writes both sweet and steamy romances. The sweet contemporary romances in her Smoky Mountain Romances, are set in southwest North Carolina. Another sweet romance series, Rivals in Love, contains two books with four more in the works. All six follow the Crandall family of Chicago as the siblings find love despite their focus on successful careers.

Her steamy romances go from Florida to Long Island. The Behind the Love series, set in a small fictional town in Florida, feature a community of people who form bonds as they learn to overcome the challenges of their youth. Her Montauk Romances are set in and around Long Island and feature simple, yet sophisticated beach houses designed with romance in mind. The two books in this set are filled with steamy scenes as love grows and thrives.

No matter the genre of novel, they all contain elements of romance with strong female characters, handsome heroes, and descriptive settings. She believes in living lightly upon this earth with love, laughter, and passion, and through her fiction, she imparts this philosophy in an entertaining manner with an obvious love for her characters, plot, and themes.
