Riassunto: Last season seventeen-year-old Samantha Sutton shined as the hottest new racing star of Formula One, but her rise to the top takes a hit when her boss steals her arch-rival Emilio Ronaldo away from Ferrari and makes the sexist jerk her team's number-one driver. This sends Samantha's perfect life into a tail spin that threatens to destroy everything she's worked so hard for.
Besides her six wins last season, the best thing Samantha won was Manny, the cute German boy who saved her from herself. But Manny chafes against the self-absorbed racing star rising above the ashes of the simple girl he fell in love with. Can he save that simple girl from destroying herself again?
While Samantha's performance on the track suffers and her status on the team plummets, Emilio rises within striking distance of another championship. Is this the final wake-up call the girl needs to beat Emilio and win the world championship? Or will the pressure break her.
Fans of Courtney Summers' strong female characters and those who love action-packed books like The Hunger Games should find Rivals exciting and emotionally compelling. Fans of Ally Carter's Heist Society should enjoy the international settings and lifestyles.
"I have not read Skid, the first book in this series. While I never felt lost or disconnected, I definitely want to be back and read it to see how Samantha succeeded in becoming a successful, young female Formula One racer! The writing is generally crisp, keeps the reader engaged and wanting to continue." - GSMarlene
"This is an awesome sequel full of plot twists and high speed excitement. I don't normally read fiction about racing but this book made me want to go see a Formula One race in person. Love it!" - Renee B.
Praise for the first book in the series Skid...
"SERIOUSLY, please read this amazing story! Okay, even though the story is about racing cars (A subject I don't know a lot about), it totally grabs your attention with the way the author describes the racing world (It was as if I was watching a movie. In a lot of moments, I was literally closing my eyes." - Review from Sincerely Happily Ever After BOOKS blog.
