Lauren Dimas has been riding motorcycles since kindergarten so the eighteen-year-old Californian has no doubt she's been recruited as a temporary rider to Cadmium Racing strictly on her technical merits. But as the only woman on this track, Lauren's presence in the boys' club of premier international motorsports is grabbing attention for all the wrong reasons. Pretty, fierce, and with Greek origins, she's soon labeled by the media as the Persephone of the pit lane—a fleeting, token choice to drive up viewership and endorsements merely because of her gender.
At nineteen, Italian Seb Bianchi is the reigning world champion in 250cc motorcycle road racing, but thanks to a bit of cockiness and a lot of distractions, he's had a harder time in the current season. After his up-and-coming teammate at Cadmium is sidelined for the remaining six races by undisclosed health problems, Seb's chances at a repeat shot at the championship suddenly increase.
And then the girl shows up and throws a proverbial Allen wrench into everything.
With her reputation on the line, Lauren must fight for respect from fans, sponsors, and journalists, but the battle to prove her worth happens as much off the track as it does on it. Getting Seb to take her seriously could sway the rest of the paddock in her favor, but she's struggling in the middle of the thirty-some-odd field while her new teammate is focused on becoming number one again. When rumors link the two of them romantically and team bosses decide to embrace the false gossip for publicity, Lauren is tempted to agree until the lines between pretend and reality become blurred and she realizes that this proverbial war for equality may not actually be a zero-sum game.
