He’s pole position…..
Carson Matthews, the hottest driver ever to hit the MotoGP circuit, is living the carefree, celebrity lifestyle. With little to worry about, other than keeping himself top if the leader board, his favourite weekend pastime is visiting a certain blonde at Angels Gentlemen’s Club.
She’s a pole dancer…..
Emma Bancroft, a part-time lap dancer, is use trying to make ends meet. Her responsibilities weigh heavily on her, as does the secret she’s kept from everyone for the last two and a half years.
The two of them are poles apart.
I found this story to be elegantly written, Kirsty Moseley has an amazing talent for writing about love.
Emma Bancroft, is a part-time lap dancer, full-time university student as well as full-time mummy and sister. She is also desperately in love with Carson Matthews the star of the MotoGP.
Throughout most of this book I was pretty sure that they both had feelings for each other (obviously knew about Emma’s). So I spent a lot of time with knots in my stomach screaming (in my head) for them to put me out of my misery (misery in the best way) and just tell each other how they felt and start getting it on!
When things started to turn south (take note of my play on words here) my stomach went from knots to full on cramps, it is fair to say I spent nearly all of this book at best uncomfortable at worst wondering if I was going to have to get the sick bucket. (But yet again in the BEST way!)
This book was intense! Totally relatable (Ok so I don’t have a Godlike racing driver declaring his love for me) BUT I think most people can relate to feeling the pain of unrequited love, even if it’s only the fear of it.
I gave this story four stars. It was an easy five BUT I have been incredibly selfish and taken one star away because I really want to read more of Carson and Emma together, I was slightly disappointed when it ended (ok so I was actually close to crying) because I really wanted to read more of them as a happy family. I was also hoping for a little narrative from Carson’s point of view, I know from experience that Kirsty is amazeballs at writing from the male perspective.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story, and read it all in one sitting. I’m a HUGE fan of Kirsty Moseley so if she’s a new author to you, go and check out her work, I promise you it will blow your mind!
Kirsty Moseley has always been a passionate reader since she was a little girl, devouring books overnight, barely sleeping and paying for it at school the next day. Writing has come similarly to her and once she discovered Wattpad, she finally plucked up the courage to post one of her stories. Seven million reads later, she self-published her debut novel THE BOY WHO SNEAKS IN MY BEDROOM WINDOW, which later became one of 10 Finalists for the 2012 Goodreads’ Choice Awards, Best YA Fiction. Shocked and overwhelmed by the response, she later published her second and third novels, Always You and Free Falling.
If she had to sum herself up in one word, it would probably be ‘daydreamer’ – but unlike most of her school teachers, she doesn’t necessarily view that as a bad thing. After all, she read somewhere once that books are like waking dreams….
She lives in Norfolk, England with her husband and son
