Start your engines…
Eighteen year-old Jesse Copeland learns of a local car race sponsored by his father’s nemesis, Shep Bradley, and the prize money might be enough to keep his family from losing their home – if he can win.
Brooke, Shep’s daughter, is also aiming to compete, with or without her father’s approval. She’ll do whatever it takes to persuade Jesse to make her car race ready. Both are driven, both are risk-takers, and soon it’s more than engines getting fired up. Jesse tells himself their relationship is strictly business, until it isn’t.
Can two star-crossed lovers overcome a family feud as old as Ford vs. Chevy, or will the competition become too explosive for these racing hearts?

Jesse has lost his father and he needs money quick. His mother and sister are all he has left and working as a mechanic isn't going to save his house. When he meets Brooke he thinks she's just a girl, until he finds out her father was his fathers enemy. She's the girl who also wants to race against him.
Racing Hearts was cute I guess but i just couldn't get into the story. I am really not into mini stories anymore. Jesse and Brooke were just alright characters and the story seemed kind of unoriginal.
While it was okay I am definitely not going to read the next book.
