    1. LIVE - amzn/1RpEuBYOh La La!!! I'm going to Italy with this book. My bags are packed, my passport is up-to-date, and I’m heading to the nearest airport. The only thing holding me back from becoming a world traveler is I hate to fly - otherwise I’d be using Ms. Halle’s books as my tour guide. When I read Love, in English and was transported to Spain I fell in love with the countryside. Then I read Where Sea Meets Sky and had a strong desire to go to New Zealand. I’d even ride in that 70 [...]

    5. It's Live!!! amzn/1LPvlxwLOVED it!5 Love & Lemons StarsKarina Halle has done it again she’s swept me away made me fall in love with fictional people and very real places.The unusual thing about this book is that instead of falling for the leading man, it’s actually the leading lady that had me swooning. Amber MacLean was introduced as a side character in Where Sea Meets Sky. In that book it was very hard to get a read on the young, quiet girl who ventured out to travel. I was very unprep [...]

    9. 4 amore mio stars! I had forgotten how much I enjoy Katrina Halle's book! And as I often am super late to the party but better late than not reading this book. "Tu sei il grande amore della mia vita. Senza di te, la vita non ha più senso." "Racing The Sun" felt like an adventure I felt like I was experiencing Italy through Amber's eyes, all the beautiful sceneries and delicious food. I definitely envied Amber, who tired of her life going nowhere decides to travel the world and see if she can fi [...]

You make me feel everything.”4.5 starsOnce again Karina Halle has delivered, giving us a gorgeous love story featuring a wonderfully relatable heroine and a dark and broody but swoonily romantic, fuckhot Italian.

I love the descriptions of the count [...]

    12. Update: 5/1/17I just read Jane Eyre for the very first time and I kinda want to rewrite my review for this book. Forget Beauty and the Beast, Racing the Sun is full of Jane Eyre! Well everything except for the crazy wife :)Original review: 4/1/17“The room is off limits if Signor Larosa is not home. You are never to go in there.” My eyes widen. This is starting to sound like Beauty and the Beast. Oh my God, am I Belle? Is he an Italian Beast? Did I just stumble into the best scenario ever? My [...]

    13. It's been a while since I've read a Karina Halle novel. Everything I was picking up the last couple of months had a cookie cutter feel to it. I would start the book only to give up. I was losing interest fast with reading, but when I can across Racing the Sun, I had to give it a shot-- and I almost didn't.Racing the Sun was a breath of fresh air! The character development, plot, and descriptive writing is exactly what I look for in a novel. It was all there with the perfect amount of emotion. I [...]

    14. I was really thrilled that Amber was getting her own book after meeting her in Josh's book, Where Sea Meets Sky. She's been traveling to find herself and what she wants to do with her life and I'm only too happy to find out whatd who. The who is motorcycle racer, Desiderio (Derio) Larosa, who is not a happy camper when we first meet him and there's good reasons why. Namely, he is now in charge of his two younger siblings. He hires Amber to teach them English since she's ended up broke and with n [...]

    15. It doesn’t help that the children are under the care of their brooding older brother, Italian ex-motorcycle racer Desiderio Larosa.Desiderio? DESIDERIO?!YOU GUYS, HIS NAME IS "WISH". WISH!

    16. Another winner for Karina Halle! Romantic, poignant, beautiful, hot and emotional. This book also has an amazing setting: a beautiful Italian island. I loved the descriptions and I could picture everything perfectly. Racing the Sun is a really great read!Amber has been traveling around the world after being not sure what to do with her life. She’s loving all the cities and visiting everything. She has only one problem now: she’s running out of money. She starts to look for a job. She will ev [...]

    17. FULL REVIEW NOW POSTED:“I should have known from the start that this man was going to give me a reason to stay.”Have you ever walked away from a book with the feeling you could still taste it, smell it, all your senses in withdrawal because for as long as it took you to read that book, you were there, in it—walking those cobblestoned streets, feeling the sunshine on your skin, hearing the chirpy song of the cicadas, lavender and lemons filling your nose with their tangy scent, while your e [...]

    18. Just a heads-up for those of you who love Italy and the Italian culture, but don't know much about it, except for the obvious: Desiderio Larosa sounds as Italian, as Stieg Larsson sounds French. There you go.His name would be perfect if it belonged to the MC of a Spanish/Southern American soap opera, but in Italy, people would laugh behind his backWriters, aspiring writers and readers, remember that Spanish-speaking countries and Italy have a lot in common. Our language is something about 96% si [...]

    19. 2.5 STARSRacing the Sun is a novel with very simple and straightforward romance. It is something to read when you aren't in mood for angsty story. There is nothing wrong about that, right?However, my biggest complain is that there was no build up to twists and there were huge holes in character development in this novel. Everything happened out of sudden and didn't suit the flow of the story. Hero (Desiderio) underwent so many big character changes that I had no idea who he truly was at the end [...]

    20. 3.5 Italy Tour Guide StarsPlease don't shun me, but I felt pulled away from the romance and story in this book because of all the descriptions of Italy. Plus, I missed the connection between the main characters.Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the story but it just didn't "grab" and "hold" me.As everyone knows, I am a HUGE fan of Karina Halle and her EIT series, so I think this is another case of "it's me, not you"

    21. I have said before, Karina Halle should be a travel writer. She has the ability to make the reader feel the air, taste the fruit, and sample the sights in such a prolific way. Every time I finish reading one of Halle’s works I want to pack my bags and go on an adventure. GAH! Writing abilities aside, Racing the Sun was a lovely read.Amber, on a trip to discover the world, is pack backing through Europe. She is over spent and in a bit of a bind. Somehow she has finagles a job as English teacher [...]

    22. Naturally, I am biased, but I love love loved the progression of the romance in this story. I loved being transported back to Italy, and getting to fall in love with yet another Karina Halle leading man, Derio! #AlltheSwoons

    23. I absolutely loved this one! So witty and hilarious. The scenery was amazing. I fell in love with all of the characterse brooding Italian God, the girl next door, and the precocious twins. One of Karina's best!

    24. 3 disappointed stars! Man I wanted this to be awesomewhen I first started reading it I thought it was going to be a 5 star read for sure. Karina Halle described Italy so beautifully, I adore how she writes, she really sets the scene. My problems with this book started with the hero. At first I was like oh mr broody & mysterious, me likey! I assumed he would redeem himselfI was wrong! He was so selfish!!!! I understand he was grieving but come on it's been 2 years and he's still shutting hims [...]

    25. Review: Surj 4- 4.5 starsFacebook: facebook/TheHopelessRTSU: tsu/HopelessRomanticsBlog: thehopelessromanticsbookblog.bAww Karina Halle, she's gone and done it again. My heart is a big pile of mushy goo having just turned the last page of her latest novel "Racing the Sun." If you loved "Love, in English," "Love, in Spanish" and "Where Sea meets Sky," you will not want to miss out on this latest addition to the series (but not a series as such) lol. There's just something magical about these books [...]

    26. Halle delivers a passionate, sensual, heartbreaking romance against the backdrop of stunning, sultry Capri in Racing the Sun and I could not put it down.Of all the stories from all the genres I've read by Karina Halle, there's none I love more than when she takes us on a journey of the heart across the globe through stunningly beautiful foreign lands. Falling in love with her characters is an adventure in and of itself, but Halle ensures the reader falls in love with travel, with other countries [...]

    27. 5 "SIGNOR DESIDERIO LAROSA" STARS. SEXY, CHARMING, HOT, FUNNY AND ROMANTIC.Karina Halle has done it again. Epppp! There's no one like her. She makes you fall in love, not only with fictional people, but with the location where the story takes place.I was transported to Capri to experience Amber's journey of self-discovery, love and the struggle to be a nanny, not only for two kids, but for their grown brother who made her heart race.Desiderio Larosa, this man, what can I say I fell hard for him, [...]

    28. If there is one thing you can count on with a book written by Halle, it is that you will get something original, fresh, and so hot and swoon worthy you won't want it to end. Add in a gorgeous Italy setting, gorgeous Italy men, and a slow building romance that is sure to make you blush and a story every bit as endearing as it is sweet, and you truly have the perfect summer read that is sure to please anyone.I have said this numerous times I know but it still holds true and bears repeating, there [...]

    29. I LOVED THIS BOOK. Hilarious, sexy and that angst was on point. My heart is still racing. I loved Amber just as much as Derio. All the feels, heartbreak and laughter perfectly mixed. What I found most surprising was how much I fell in love with the entire family, Annabelle, Alfonso, Felisa. I became a member of their Italian sitcom and was honestly sad to see this book end. Def a book not be missed. ***full review closer to release date ***
