Isabel Turner has her eyes on the prize. As the PR representative for some of NASCAR’s top sponsors, she has worked long hours proving that she has what it takes. Hoping to be selected as heir-apparent to her uncle’s position, Isabel knows she is under consideration. If only she could stop dreaming of another encounter with racing’s bad boy, Cade Garrison. She just can’t seem to get past their one night together over a year ago. If she wants to succeed, she can’t date a driver. It is an ironclad NASCAR rule, and one that would destroy her career, and disappoint her uncle, the man who raised her after her parents died.

Cade Garrison has been thinking a lot about Isabel lately. He would like to get to know her better, to see if the spark of passion could turn into something more. But he has his hands full with his floundering career. When his bad temper and a right hook landed him in hot water, Cade was “demoted” to the Busch series car in his father’s shop. He wants back in the big game – the Cup series – and he is intent on showing both his family and the racing community that he can do it. The last thing he needs on his mind is a woman, especially a woman that he cannot have.

The writing team of Liz Allison and Wendy Etherington has produced an excellent novel in No Holding Back. Between the roar of engines and the cheering crowd, two people discover that nothing should stand in the way when love is the prize.

I noticed in the flyleaf that the authors welcome readers to the Garrison family, so I hope that means that siblings Rachel and Bryan will have stories to come.
