Rocco De Luca lives and loves in the fast lane. A past Formula 1 champ, he has been jetting around the world arranging celebrity charity races and partying with the world’s elite. Coming home to Isola del Fiori and filling in for his older brother for a few weeks sounds…well, boring. Until he meets Steffi Harlan. 

Steffi Harlan is sophisticated, elegant, and way too smart to fall for a tanned chest and a bad-boy smile, or so she thinks, until she’s put in charge of keeping the jet-set playboy out of trouble while he’s gone. Sure, no problem. Except Steffi isn’t immune to Rocco’s charms. 

They burn up the nights they spend together, and the last thing Steffi wants is to crash out and end up with a broken heart… Can they both survive love in the fast lane? 

I found this to be a fast paced,  very simple romance, with clearly great sexual chemistry between Rocco and Steffi. 

It is set on the wonderful Amalfi Coast, which sounds very picturesque, but since the book was so short, I found there to be very little depth to the story, so you had to take the characters at face value. They were both clearly suffering from issues relating to their parents, but it was more passed in mentioning than giving you a proper insight. 

I was originally interested in this book as I have read a previous Katherine Garbera book and enjoyed it, as well as being intrigued by an ex-F1 champion (you don't come across them often), but unfortunately on this occasion I found it came up short. 

I liked The Billionaire's Temptation, and it being so short is in its favour, if you are looking for something quick and sexy.
