Crystal Hayes is tired of all the hype her looks attract. So when she makes a delivery for her parents company to a NASCAR event, she’s surprised when she meets a man who actually looks at HER, not just her looks. Larry Grasso, is not quite the black sheep of his famous racing family, he’s just different. As a college professor, he’s never really been part of his family’s racing dynasty. He’s also a widower who’s never looked at another woman since his wife passed away. So, he’s stunned when a chance meeting with Crystal throws him for a loop. They find themselves dating but their families couldn’t be more against it! For one thing, Larry is much older than Crystal and has grown children, a fact which drives Crystal’s mother crazy. And Larry’s son believes that Crystal is a gold digger. Add to this the ongoing drama with Crystal’s unstable sister and brother-in-law, and all the odds are stacked against Crystal and Larry being able to make a relationship work. But somehow that doesn’t stop them from falling in love.

I loved Overheated! Barbara Dunlop delivers a story that easily had me cheering for Larry and Crystal. Finely drawn out characters make the age difference seem unimportant to the reader as they become enthralled in the happy ending that is so flawlessly delivered. I’m happy to recommend Overheated to all readers who are looking for a story that will leave them feeling good long after the last page is turned!
