The Derby Girl

Goodreads  Amazon 

The Derby Girl (Getting Physical, #2)
4 of 5 stars false
Book two of Getting Physical
Roller derby girl Gretchen "Honey Badger" Badgerton lives in the moment, no apologies. Like every woman in Pleasant Park with a pulse, she finds Dr. Jared Fine irresistible, but she's taken by surprise when her unattainable new neighbor asks her out.
On paper, Jared is the perfect man: gorgeous, wealthy and charitable. But his golden image is just that, and opening an upstate practice is a welcome chance to start a new life. When Gretchen stops to help him with a flat tire, he's intrigued by her feisty attitude—and her sexy body art. There's something refreshing about being with a take-charge woman who doesn't expect him to be anything but himself.
Though Gretchen is hesitant to shatter Jared's "bad girl" illusion of her, she has to face facts: she's fallen for the good doctor. She's used to putting everyone else's needs before hers, but as their relationship heats up, can she handle having someone take care of her for a change?
Call back to The Rebound Girl.

**** Carina Press through NetGalley provided me with an ARC of this book for my honest review****
I had never heard of this series before coming across the book on NetGalley. That being said, the minute I read the synopsis I knew I had to read it. I have always been a fan of roller derby so a roller derby girl as a heroine? I was excited. A few pages into this book I was completely hooked. Gretchen "Honey Badger" Badgerton was an amazingly smart and complex character, she could be a tough as nails girl in the ring who laughed about bruises, but outside she had a vulnerable side and could have her moments of just being as lost as everyone else. Her eccentricity just made her all the more appealing as she dabbled in various careers and wasn't afraid to try new things. When she stops to "rescue" our hero Jared Fine aka Dr. Fine, renowned plastic surgeon from a flat tire on the side of the road, you immediately know this is not going to be a storybook simple romance. Jared isn't without his own flaws and past, and together they weave an entertaining story line filled with meddling ex's, steam, stereotypes and reality checks. An awesome series that I'm sure to continue!
