Series Tour & Book 1 Review – Holeshot by Lynn Michaels

A big welcome to Lynn Michaels as part of her series tour with Signal Boost Promotions for Holeshot.

Review – Book 1 – The Holeshot

I liked Davey and Tyler’s story, and felt for them having to keep their relationship a secret. I know nothing about Supercross racing but that didn’t detract from my enjoyment of the story. The supporting characters were great, and added to the story. I particularly liked Angel, and the way her photo assignment grew into something much bigger. There’s a strong sense of family throughout too, which is something I enjoy.

I did, however, struggle with the amount of sex scenes. I realise that it is part of a new relationship – something which is noted later on – but felt at least some of them could have been off screen. Once the story got past that, though, I found myself turning pages and very engrossed, and wanting them to get their HEA. I read for characters and relationships rather than just the sexual part of that, so this is a personal preference. Other readers might not have the same issues I did.

Davey and Tyler feel very young as characters, especially in their reactions to situations, but then they are only in their early 20s, so I thought their lack of life experience came across well. I loved Davey’s collection of geeky T-shirts, and the way they grew a friendship alongside of their relationship. The Supercross races were exciting, especially as the ante upped and Davey’s opposition tried to do him serious damage on the track.

The ending was very satisfying, and particularly liked the conversation between Davey and Cole, which I thought was realistic. I also liked how Darla was written, with her motives a little grey at times. I felt that added a touch of realism too.

I’d recommend The Holeshot to readers who enjoy sports romance with likeable characters and don’t mind a lot of sex in a story. 3.5 stars out of 5.

Tyler Whitmore wants to be out of the closet, but dating the competition is a death sentence for his career.

Christmas isn’t all race tracks and dirt bikes for Davey and Tyler, especially when they don’t see things about each other in quite the same way.

About Anne Barwell

Anne Barwell lives in Wellington, New Zealand. She shares her home with a cat with “tortitude” who is convinced that the house is run to suit her; this is an ongoing “discussion,” and to date, it appears as though Kaylee may be winning. In 2008, Anne completed her conjoint BA in English Literature and Music/Bachelor of Teaching. She has worked as a music teacher, a primary school teacher, and now works in a library. She is a member of the Upper Hutt Science Fiction Club and plays violin for Hutt Valley Orchestra. She is an avid reader across a wide range of genres and a watcher of far too many TV series and movies, although it can be argued that there is no such thing as “too many.” These, of course, are best enjoyed with a decent cup of tea and further the continuing argument that the concept of “spare time” is really just a myth. She also hosts and reviews for other authors, and writes monthly blog posts for Love Bytes. She is the co-founder of the New Zealand Rainbow Romance writers, and a member of RWNZ. Anne’s books have received honorable mentions five times, reached the finals four times—one of which was for best gay book—and been a runner up in the Rainbow Awards. She has also been nominated twice in the Goodreads M/M Romance Reader’s Choice Awards—once for Best Fantasy and once for Best Historical. Anne can be found at
