I may have cried during this book, though I will admit nothing. Hot Finish by Erin McCarthy. Though the third book in the Fast Track series, this can certainly be read as a standalone novel. The hero also happens to race cars for a living. Alexander Colton and February Owens were high school sweethearts whose relationship was wrecked by tragedy.
Twenty years later, well after February left town, she returns to help out at the family bar. Colt and Feb find that their feels are still very much there, and when people close to Feb start turning up murdered, Colt does everything to protect her—even if it means getting dangerously close to putting both their hearts on the line. He goes on to gain wealth in New York City, only to return to seek vengeance on Aline—with plans to seduce and then reject her.
But the passion—and love—between them makes him rethink his plans. Set in the south, The Sweet Gum Tree follows two childhood friends: Alix, born into a wealthy family, and Nick, a poor boy with a troubled home life. The two form a fast friendship that turns into love as they grow older, but ends abruptly when tragedy strikes and Nick skips town—leaving Alix pregnant. Despite the tenderness of their young love, sweet Anne Elliot was swayed by a well-meaning friend to reject the hand of Frederick Wentworth based on his class.

I should really just dedicate a list just for her…. Tanner Layne and Raquel Merrick fell in love young, hard and fast and both of them knew a beautiful life they thought would be forever. Until she hit Mustang, Colorado, a perfectly imperfect town where the citizens were welcoming and one of them included the tall, beautiful, macho man rancher cowboy, Grayson Cody. On the run for a decade, Ivey knew she was supposed to play it safe. But she was tired of being on the run. She wanted a normal. She wanted real. She wanted a home. There was one man in this world for Ivey and one woman in this world for Grayson Cody.
But just as quickly as they fell together, they were betrayed and torn apart. Separated for years, Ivey was certain her life would not include her rancher cowboy. Until the town of Mustang reached out to her when Gray was in trouble. Even though she thought he broke her heart, she charged in to help.
Then Gray and Ivey discovered they were betrayed and, not only that, Gray had an enemy who would stop at nothing to defeat him. Way too young, eleven year old Tucker Creed and his six year old neighbor, Sylvie Bissenette, find they have something awful in common. So he does and Creed and Sylvie form a bond that grows and blossoms with their ages. They plot to leave their lives behind, the town they live in that will hold them down and the histories they share that, unless they break free, will bury them. With Creed gone, Sylvie is forced to endure a nightmare and do the unspeakable to end it.
To deal, she develops a hard shell with sharp edges that very few can break through.
So when Creed again finds his Sylvie, he discovers the girl he loved is locked away and he has to find his way back into her heart without getting shredded in the process. Mace broke up with her, though, and the loss of him rocked her world. But Stella gets a call, late at night again from one of the members of her crazy band. She has to go play clean up again and runs into Mace and a shed load of police, and ends up getting shot.
