Pole Position by Charlie Novak Release Blitz

Pole Position. Charlie Novak. A Lights Out Novel.

Pole position gives a driver the best chance at winning, but can there be a winner when a long-term relationship is on the line?

Mateo Llorente was born to be Formula 1 World Champion. Charming, handsome, and incredibly talented, Mateo is everything a champion should be. Dean Williams has fought for his position in Formula 1 with everything he has, and dreams of podium finishes and championship trophies.

For the past three years, Mateo and Dean have kept their long-term relationship under wraps, but when they both find themselves driving for Cadigan Racing, they know things won’t stay simple for long.

Keeping their relationship a secret is one thing, but dealing with the demands of the season is another. As both drivers rack up points and the media scrutiny puts them under pressure, cracks start to appear in Mateo and Dean’s relationship.

Can their love survive the intensity of Formula 1? Or will winning cost Dean and Mateo everything?

This M/M romance from Charlie Novak features a steamy long-term secret relationship between teammates, and is set in the high octane world of Formula 1 featuring fast cars, driving at the limit, spectacular crashes, heated rivalries, and of course, a HEA.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is part of a connected series written by a group of very talented writers and I have enjoyed them all so far – and am looking forward to the others.

I really, really enjoyed the premise of this book and would love to think it was based on reality, as it is just such a fun idea. The cover picture is cleverly designed to give a Formula 1 fan an enticing idea of who it might be!

Mateo and Dean have been a couple for three years, completely on the quiet. When Dean is asked to join Mateo's racing team, they know that they have to be honest with the team principal. This, for me, set the story up to be one I would enjoy, because they were upfront with the team, and so all the possible disasters and miscommunications got taken out of the game. It also meant that we know, as they do, that those people in the team who know have their back. In a world where they drive cars at 200+mph it is important that there is trust, just as it is in a close relationship.

There is a lot of humour, love, passion, and racing in this story – and I am going to say no more so that you get to it fresh and I am sure will enjoy it as much as I did. I will never watch a race build up again without wondering, and smiling at the thought!

Pole Position is technically book three in the Lights Out multi-author series. It can be read as a standalone, but I feel it completely reads better if you read what has come before it. You won't be missing any information if you choose to just read this one though.

Mateo and Dean are already in a long-term relationship after meeting in their teens. Dean gets a spot on the Cadigan Racing team, the same team Mateo is already racing for. They both think that being on the same team will make their racing life and relationship easier. What they don't expect are the little blips in their relationship on the way.

When I first read about Dean and Mateo in Team Orders, I couldn't wait to get their story. I loved getting an already established couple and getting to see the day-to-day battle of making that relationship work. Mateo was fun and light, and Dean seemed so serious, but together they are perfection!

I can't wait to see what's next in the world of F1 racing!
