Happy Release Day to Samantha Towle and her new book REVIVED! This is Leandro’s story! Read a sneak peek below and make sure to enter the giveaway! Good luck!
India Harris didn’t have the best start in life. Abandoned as a baby, she and her twin brother, Kit, spent their lives in foster care, only having each other to rely on. Then, at a young age, a relationship with the wrong man left India pregnant. Wanting to give her son the life she never had, she put herself through school and graduated with honors.
Now, at the age of thirty, she’s a highly respected therapist.
At the top of his game as a Formula One driver, Leandro Silva had everything—until an accident on the track left him staring death in the face. After enduring twelve months of physical therapy, Leandro is now physically able to race, but his mind is keeping him from the track. Frustrated and angry, Leandro’s days and nights are filled with limitless alcohol and faceless women.
Entering the last year of his contract, he knows he has to race again, or he’ll lose everything he spent his life working for. Forced into therapy to get his life back, Leandro finds himself in the office of Dr. India Harris.
Falling for his uptight therapist is not part of Leandro’s plan.
Having unethical feelings for her patient, the angry Brazilian race car driver, is not part of India’s plan.
But what if the wrong person is the only person who is right?
My eyes move to the magazines on the table. A sports mag is peeking out from under the fashion mags. Leaning forward, I pull it out, instantly wishing I hadn’t.
On the cover of the magazine is a picture of me with the caption, What the Bad Side of Formula 1 Looks Like.
So, now, I’m the bad side of Formula 1. Good to know.
I already know what the media say about me. How I’ve turned from a great racer into a drunk and a whore.
They’re not wrong on the whore part. Well, whore is a bit harsh. I don’t charge for my services. And I wouldn’t say I’m a drunk. I just like to drink—a lot.
I shouldn’t read the article. I know this, but the sadistic part of me has me turning those pages.
Finding the article, eyes scanning the text, I pick out the usual shit.
Why is Silva no longer racing? Physically, he’s healthy. Is it mental problems? Fear over racing because of his accident? Is that why he drinks—drowning his misery in alcohol? Such a shame to see a once great driver fall from grace so dramatically.
Frustration and rage grip my chest like a vise.
Fuck this. I don’t need this shit.
Even though I can’t race, it’s not like I actually need to.
I don’t need to race. I just need to drink and fuck. That’s all I need now. All I will ever need.
I’m a liar and a chickenshit. And that’s why I’m sitting in the waiting room to see a therapist.
Maybe I am beyond help.
Tossing the magazine back onto the table, I get to my feet, ready to leave this place, just as the door opens, revealing the epitome of what I could really do with screwing right now.
My eyes trail up the tanned, toned legs to the fitted pencil skirt that I would happily hitch up to see the magnificent pussy that I bet lies beneath. A pale-pink blouse is tucked into that skirt, covering what looks like a fantastically sized pair of tits. Silky blonde hair sits on her shoulders. Hair that I would enjoy getting my hands all tangled in while I fuck those bright red lips of hers, enjoying seeing that lipstick smeared all over my cock.
My dick pulses in my jeans, more than ready to proposition her with the offer.
“Mr. Silva.” She steps forward. “I’m Dr. Harris. But please call me India.”
She’s Dr. Harris?
This hitch-your-skirt-up-and-let-me-fuck-you-right-now woman is my new therapist.
Well, that’s just fucking great. It’s not like I can bang my therapist.
I put my cock on hold and give her my best smile, the one that always has panties dropping to the floor, as I say, “And you can call me Leandro.”
Picking up Revived was nerve wracking to say the least. Although Revived can easily be read as a standalone the idea of a hot f1 driver was born in Revved (Carrick and Andie’s story) and my love for Carrick and that book was huge it’s been my favourite book so far this year so how would I feel when reading Leandro’s story? Could anything live up to Revved? Would Leandro be has hot as Carrick? These were all questions going through my mind as I stared at my kindle screen. I’d procrastinated long enough it was time to dive in, worst case I’d get more Carrick, best case I’d love Leandro too. What I wasn’t prepared for was the even better case of falling madly in love with both Carrick and Leandro and never wanting the story to end. Unfortunately it did end so now whilst I’m sat with yet another book hangover courtesy of Samantha I have to write a review and attempt to do justice to the words I read.
This book is definitely a ‘just one more chapter’ book, there was no easy place to stop reading but on the occasion I had too I was desperate to pick it up again. Leandro is an off the rails womaniser and India is a strong, stable and successful woman, they shouldn’t fit together yet the relationship between them has depth and I felt a real connection with them both from the outset and the sex? The sex is hot! Even hotter than Carrick and Andie’s.
The story felt more grown up than revved and that was thanks to the addition of Jett, I loved his relationship with Leandro and the way he obviously adored his mum I’d love him to get a story of his own.
I’ve saved the bit I loved the most until last and that was by far the relationship between Leandro and Carrick, it was hilarious and heartwarming, the perfect book bromance. As for who’s my favourite, I think I’d find it easier to choose my favourite child! Samantha writes amazing book boyfs that are impossible to forget so let’s just say I’m a Leandro lady who’s Carrick Crazy.
Another awesome 5 star read from an author who has fast become one of my favourites thanks to her ability to take me on unforgettable journeys that captivate me from the first page.
