Racing Hearts Paperback Compilation by Laura Lascarso ~ Character Interview

Today, I have with me up-and-coming NASCAR superstar Brooke Bradley who it has been said, races like a jackrabbit on Ritalin. She also happens to be my girlfriend. Brooke, how are you today?

I’m excellent, Jesse. How are you?

Spectacular. Now, every since you hit the NASCAR circuit six weeks ago, you’ve been spinning heads and breaking hearts. I’d like to give the fans what they want, which is to know a little bit more about you. You ready?

I was born ready.

All right then, let’s start with the hard-hitting stuff. What’s your favorite food?

Hmmm… there’s so many to choose from, but I’d have to say tacos.

Favorite ice cream?

You know that one already.


[Laughing] No, strawberry.

Indy 500 or Daytona 500?

Daytona, of course. Hometown represent!

Ford or Chevy?

Chevy. No question.

If you could go any place in the world, where would you go?

New Zealand.

New Zealand?

Yeah, it looks gorgeous.

What’s your favorite thing to do in the summertime, besides racing cars?


What’s one thing not many people know about you?

I’m dyslexic.

Who’s your hero?

Danica Patrick. And my dad. Now it’s your turn, Jesse Copeland. What do you do when you’re not racing cars?

Hang out by the beach with my hot girlfriend.

Who’s your hero?

My father, #67, the late, great Phillip Copeland.

Long live the Conqueror. If you could be any superhero, who would it be?

Hmmm…I’d have to say Batman because of his sweet ride.

And if you could have one wish, what would it be? And don’t say wish for more wishes.

I’d wish for you and me to be together forever.

[kissing sounds]

One more question: what are you going to do after this interview?

I’m going to take my baby to get Mexican, order salsa that’s way too hot for me and pretend I can handle it.

[laughing] Sounds like a plan.

Author: Laura Lascarso
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary Romance
Release Date: Available Now!!!

Book One:
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? 
Book Two:

See you at the finish line… 

With the big race weeks away, eighteen-year-old Jesse Copeland struggles to keep his head in the game and his hands off his smoking hot competition. But when Brooke reveals a secret that could destroy Jesse’s family, it sends him into a tailspin of self-doubt.

Jesse must pull himself together if he hopes to have a shot at the prize money, save his home, and win the heart of the girl he loves.

Can these two competitors overcome the sins of their fathers or will a shadowed history destroy their dreams forever?
