WHR Synopsis

These drivers got #swag…

Racing is in her DNA.
Right alongside money and power.
When you’re the daughter of one of the most powerful men in the country,
you have to work harder for success.
Joey Gamble’s a girl on a male-dominated track.
With a daddy who can buy whatever she wants.
But she doesn’t want anything… except to EARN her reputation.

Racing is his passion.
Trouble follows him everywhere. Some even say he invites it.
When you’re nipping at the taillights of the best driver in the new NRR,
you have to fight and claw for each and every success.
It’s never been easy for Lorhaven.
That’s why he doesn’t play by the rules.
He’s a man with a serious chip on his shoulder against the pro racing circuit.
We at GearShark want to know what’s up with that.

We’ve also been hearing rumblings…
of a pro who wants to go indie.

We’ve invited racing royalty and the driver from the wrong side of the tracks to sit down and talk to us about a possible crossover.
We expected sparks to fly when Joey and Lorhaven crossed paths.
Will those sparks ignite into a full-on inferno?




I’ve been sitting on this one for awhile, wondering where I would start with it. My problem with #Swag and the GearShark series overall is that it is SO GOOD that I can’t stop and tell you that this is the absolute best one. I can’t even tell you that it’s my favorite in the series. They all have been. You cannot pick just one, especially if you have read the other books.

#Swag is a full-length novel, with an HEA. It is written from a first person dual POV as well. The thing about #Swag, is that in the GearShark series, it’s likely to be the only M/F book in it. That doesn’t bother me a bit.

I’m one of those people that fell in love with the “villain” of the GearShark series. Lorhaven was intended to be that. He became so much more and you found so much more depth to him. As for Joey, I loved this girl from the minute she was introduced. She’s spunky, she’s a girl that won’t back down just because it’s a “man’s” world. She’s also written in a way that it doesn’t annoy you, she has backbone, and it is the perfect amount.

#Swag takes the two characters that literally butt heads and throws them together. They are from two different racing worlds and they both want to be the best. Sparks absolutely fly between these two and it is apparent from the very beginning. In fact, the cover of this book is supposed to be them. If you read the book, you will figure out that this is actually a scene from it. (Yes! The cover and how it came to be was written into the book.)

Cambria Hebert’s writing is show stopping. She captures emotion and feelings then somehow they hit the pages with an eloquence that leaves you wanting more. I know when I want a good book that is going to drag me down to the depths of the pages and keep me enthralled, that I need to reach for something she has written. You run a gamut of emotions within the pages she writes. I have laughed, cried, been angry, felt sorrow, and a whole other slew of things in between while reading her books. Her characters become real to you, they come alive for you, and they will leave you wanting more. #Swag is absolutely no exception to this. (Also you find out more about the next book!)

If you ever have a chance to read #Swag, or this series. Go for it. I would whole-heartedly tell you to dive into it. A full 5-stars! Just try not to let the book hangover shock you at the end when you’re looking for more pages to read.
