Arc Review Racing The Sun by Karina Halle

Wednesday, July 22, 2015
From the USA TODAY bestselling author of Where Sea Meets Sky comes a new adult novel about a young woman who becomes a nanny in Capri and falls for her charges’ bad-boy brother.

It’s time for twenty-four-year-old Amber MacLean to face the music. After a frivolous six months of backpacking through New Zealand, Australia, and Southeast Asia, she finds herself broke on the Mediterranean without enough money for a plane ticket home to California.
There are worse places to be stuck than the gorgeous coastline of southern Italy, but the only job she manages to secure involves teaching English to two of the brattiest children she’s ever met.

It doesn’t help that the children are under the care of their brooding older brother, Italian ex-motorcycle racer Desiderio Larosa. Darkly handsome and oh-so-mysterious, Derio tests Amber’s patience and will at every turn—not to mention her hormones.

But when her position as teacher turns into one as full-time nanny at the crumbling old villa, Amber finds herself growing closer to the enigmatic recluse and soon has to choose between the safety of her life back in the States and the uncertainty of Derio’s closely guarded heart.




I have read so many books from Karina Halle and I love them but this one is something else!!It's different from her other books and I loved it so much!!!It was refreshing and I felt like I was a part of the story!I devoured the story!I felt like I was traveling with Amber in Italy!!So beautiful place, and now I really want to go there find a job and fell in love! This story isn't only about the romance,it's also about finding yourself...


Amber has two months left on her travel visa and now she is in Italy.But she doesn't have money so she must find a job!The job she finds as an English teacher to two Italian children isn't easy...The kids have issues and Derio their older brother is a jackass...This is happening until she meets them and knows their tragic past..Now she has feelings for Derio and they spend more time together...But can she invest in a relationship when she knows that she doesn't have a lot of time until she goes back home?


Both characters are realistic.I loved Amber and I really admired her, because she travels alone trying to find herself! I wish I could do the same! Derio is a perplex hero.He has a mystery around him and you keep wondering what he is really thinking!He intrigued me from the beginning,because he is a hot Italian man!Can you think his accent??OMG I wish I could hear him... I loved him so much,he is so hot!Even though sometimes I was pissed with him and others I was so sad and I wanted to hug him!But this is what makes him real, he has his bad and good moments!They are so perfect for each other!Amber is exactly what Derio needs,she help him a lot!The romance developed slowly and it was perfect because it's tender,passionate and intense!


I also fell in love with Derio's family!!His sister and brother is two cute children which have issues and in the beginning they were difficult but you can understand them!!I loved them both!

Karina is an amazing author and did an amazing job with this book!!This is a sweet,hot,funny and intense romance!It's a perfect summer book for the beach!I highly recommend it!!!

It's true Karina I fell in love with Italy and Derio <3
Maybe it's time for me to travel to Italy...
