Oliver Blackwood is a world-class endurance racer… and he’s in a lot of trouble
At the peak of his career, having won two of out of the three legs of endurance racing’s most prestigious honor–the Triple Crown–Ollie has the world at his feet, immortality within his grasp, and the eye of every other gay man in England. That is, until he gets into a fight with his teammate and personal rival, Gary Fife. The fight lands Gary in the emergency room with a broken nose and Ollie in a police station.
His chance at redemption comes in the form of a rich idiot who wants to compete in a charity endurance race. Ollie’s manager makes it clear: he’s to train the newcomer, shake hands and make up with Gary, and ideally win the charity race for his team, or he’ll be sitting Le Mans out this year, and he’ll lose his best shot at the Crown.
Jack Blythe has also been living in the fast lane
After working from the age of sixteen in his own software company, at twenty-six, Jack thinks it’s high time he got to have a little fun. When the opportunity to go motor racing for charity comes up, he jumps at it–especially as it gives him the chance to meet Ollie Blackwood, gay icon of the moment. As a closeted gay man who’s never really had time for a relationship, the chance to get to know someone who’s out and successful like Ollie is too good to pass up.
The only obstacle in Jack’s way now is learning to drive a manual car. And figuring out how to woo a man whose world couldn’t be more different to his own.
With Ollie’s career at stake, Jack unsure about his future if he comes out, and Gary with a score to settle, winning the race–and each other’s hearts–is anything but simple. Can Ollie and Jack sort out what they want out of life before they part ways forever? Or will Gary’s distaste for his teammate lead to disaster?
Fast Lane is a stand-alone story of approximately 30,000 words, and does not end on a cliffhanger. It does, however, contain a thick Liverpool accent, explicit sex scenes, a lot of swearing, fast cars, pretty boys, and a happily ever af
