Author: Cheyanne Young
Publisher: 336Love
Publishing Date: June 26, 2013

When Hana Fisher moves to the small town of Mixon, Texas to live with her dad, she dreads having to work at the boring pile of dirt he fondly calls a motocross track. But when she gets there, she finds the rinky-dink dirt bike track from her childhood has grown into the most respected racing track in the state.

Now popular by association, Hana endures the pain and sweat of working in the summer heat in order to fit in with a sport she’s growing to love. She gets a real family, a best friend and not just one, but two of the fastest racers trying to win her heart.

When Hana abuses her status as the track owner’s daughter to help the gorgeous Ryan Russo cheat in the biggest race of the year, she risks more than just losing her job. Every good thing in her life is at stake now- her friends, her dad’s trust, and Ash Carter- the kind-hearted racer who may not be as alluring as Ryan, but is proof that nice guys don’t always finish last.

The Excerpt
The next truck pulls up and I ready my clipboard. It's an older Mazda with faded red paint and a blue dirt bike in the back. Shiny decals on the bike's number plate read 336. The guy driving is about my age. He would fit in perfectly with the hot motocross guys if his hair wasn't a foot long and dread-locked. It makes him look wild, like someone who frequently breaks the rules and doesn't care. A white grease-stained shirt and board shorts complete his look. It is the exact opposite of Ryan's clean-cut, designer label, you-can-bring-me-home-to-mom style. He takes the clipboard and signs it in two places.
"Good morning." He hands it back along with money. "Hana Fisher, right?" His teeth are remarkably white when he smiles. Maybe it's not a bleach thing. Maybe there's something in the water that gives Mixon boys great smiles.
"Yeah, something like that," I say, bored with small talk. I'd spent the entire morning confirming my name to people and talking about my black eye and stupid things like the weather, or how exciting it is being at the races. All he needs to do is sign, pay and leave me alone so I can discuss the same thing all over again with the next person in line.
"I'm paying for me and the girl in the car behind us," he says.
"That's nice." I glance toward the blonde he's referring to. "Girlfriend?"
"Sister actually, but she costs as much as one." He laughs as he leans forward and shoves his wallet back in his pocket. "I'm Ash, by the way."
"Nice to meet you." He shakes my hand and flashes me another smile so wholesome, it makes all my visions of him robbing a convenient store seem unrealistic. He drives forward and I wave the girl through, wondering why dreadlocks have such a stigma about them anyway.
The Author
