I can fake it with the best of them. At the top of my game as a Moto Grand Prix racer, I’m used to the entire world watching me. But the truth is, beneath this polished smile, I’m hurting—physically and emotionally. Longing for my family and the girl I left behind, I need a break from the Moto Grand Prix world. A chance to heal.
So the moment I’m free from the press circuit, I bolt home for some R&R—determined to win back Taryn Ledell’s heart if it’s the last thing I do. The problem is: she’s got plans of her own. As a World Superbike racer, she’s on the brink of making it big. It’s going to take all the sweet-talking charm I’ve got to convince the girl of my dreams that she can have everything she wants if she’s willing to be fearless.

The ‘Moto Grand Prix‘ series gets off to a strong start with Billy and Taryn’s romance in ‘Fearless‘. Although this is a second chance romance in so many ways, through the use of flashback chapters and the present POV being Billy’s, and the past POV being Taryn’s until they meet up again we’ll get an overview of how they met and the challenges they’ve faced so far. And there are challenges from outsiders, from giving too much to others and not to the one you’re supposed to love, and from interference from situations beyond their control. Theirs is not the easiest of romances, and there are plenty of potholes on the road to their happy ever after – but it is so worth the trip.
I liked Billy, he’s not an alpha male but just an everyday guy who loves bull riding, motorcycle racing, and his girl. The trouble is that Billy cannot say no to someone who needs something from him – especially his brother (who I wanted to Gibbs smack often). He’s injured right now, needing to hide that fact from the press so he’s returning home to recoup and win his girl back before she leaves forever… none of that is going to be easy.
Taryn is a ‘take names and kick butt’ kind of woman, and I adored her attitude (for the most part). She has the right to be number one in her man’s life – but we all know that isn’t always possible and so often her reasons and her need to always be mad or arguing showed more immaturity than loving to me.
I enjoyed ‘Fearless‘. I do think that you have to be the type of reader who likes going back and forth from the past to the present with always just a few vital bits of information waiting to be discovered. I had a good time with this couple and in this world, and if you give it a chance I believe you will as well. This couple does belong together, it’s simply going to be a long road to travel to get to that point as they deal with their issues.
