She was hired to clean up his image. He wants nothing more than to get her dirty.
Watching sex tapes at the office is just part of PR professional Vivian Blake’s job, especially when she has to clean up a celebrity’s image. Except that her newest client isn’t quite that easy. Racecar driver Jarod Cage is beyond hot, and his onscreen “performance” is already compromising Viv’s cool professionalism.
While Jarod hasn’t exactly been discreet about his personal life, he never thought his reputation could cost him both his sponsor and his racing career. Now he has to put his future in the hands of a tiny, pixie-like publicist. Which is becoming a problem, because the heat between them is about to redline. But when you go this hard and fast, putting on the brakes is the most dangerous thing you can do…

Caught is the story of PR professional, Viv, and NASCAR driver, Jarod Cage. Jarod is literally caught with his pants down in a bathroom stall and Viv is hired to fix his image.
Jarod and Viv are complete opposites. Viv is a Northern Yank who is feisty and tells it how it is, something Jarod is no... ...more
Caught is an interesting story of a PR rep and a race-car driver. I like that it’s about something other than MC club, rock-star or some sort of fighter.
Viv is very strong-willed, focused and determined woman. She’s been working her up the ladder and this is her chance to shine. As long... ...more

Wow- this book is a seriously wild ride! (Pardon the mild NASCAR pun- I simply couldn't help myself). But seriously, though, this book is a whole hell of a lot of fun. I'm a sucker for sports romance, and I've never read a NASCAR one before, but the vibrant way that Clare James writes about the t... ...more

Hot. Sexy. Delicious. Man, I can just describe this book in three words. From the very first moment that the main characters met until the last pages of the book, they d... ...more
Holy hotness! This book is 5 alarm sexy and if you didn't like Nascar before, your opinion may change after reading about this hot driver. Hot just doesn't do Jarod Cage justice; I would need a thesaurus to find the right word. He is sexy, sweet, Southern, and excellent at what he does. He handle... ...more

Vivian Blake has been hired to clean up the image of sexy racecar driver Jarod Cage, which wouldn’t be so difficult if she wasn’t so attracted to him.

I don't know anything about NASCAR and car racing (I'll like to keep it that way, thank you very much) but the PR angle of the story caught my interest and I wanted to see how it would go, especially for being caught pants down!

Caught is author Clare James’ first outing for Entangled and it very quickly won my heart. I love a workplace romance and this book is even better because one of main character’s offices is a very loud and very fast race car.
Vivian and Jarod could not be any more different and I found myself wond... ...more
This book definitely takes you on a hot and sexy ride! Vivian and Jarod were explosive from their first encounter, and what starts as quid pro quo quickly turns into an attraction that neither one can - nor wants to - deny, and once they realize that scratching the itch just makes it impossible f... ...more

I really enjoyed this sexy racing read. As someone raised on F1, motor racing has always been a part of my life (though why I’m bothering right now is a question I ask myself often), so although NASCAR doesn’t appeal to me, I do get why it’s so beloved and looked forward to reading about a racing... ...more
