Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Driven by Suzanne Falter

Driven (Oaktown Girls Book 1)

"Nice easy read. Characters were well written. Page turner I didn’t want to put down. Looking forward to more in the series."

"I very much enjoyed this story - a great and unusual setup for the romance with very likable characters, even if Mr. Big was a bit neglected along the way. ;)"


Who says you can't find the love of your life while you're getting your tire fixed? Even IF your boss is actively trying to close her garage? Driven is the oldest woman-owned garage in Oakland - and the pride of the lesbian community. At least, it is until the uber-competitive former race car driver Mindy Rose shows up and opens her own garage, complete with chair massages and a sushi bar. Mindy's out to destroy Driven, a fact that galls her good-hearted, and very ethical Irish assistant Kate. This is just reinforced when Kate has an emergency blow out, and is forced to go into Driven for a repair. Instantly, she finds herself drawn to the tall, tantalizing co-owner Lizzy. That's when things get ... well ... complicated. Especially because Kate is an undocumented worker who seriously needs her job. Soon Kate finds herself hatching a secret scheme to save Driven, while falling hard for Lizzy. Yet, Lizzy has no idea she's part of the Mindy's nasty operation. Or even that Mindy is out to get her. Can sweet Kate and passionate Lizzy finally find the love they've been looking for forever? Or will Mindy find out and bring them and Driven down - and get Kate deported in the process? And when is Kate going to tell Lizzy who she actually is? It's just the beginning of the wild ride that is the Oaktown Girls series.
