Racing The Sun Blog Tour

Karina Halle

From the New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author of Where Sea Meets Sky comes a new adult novel about a young woman who becomes a nanny in Capri and falls for her charges’ bad-boy brother.

When I’m traveling, I feel like the secret to my life, to myself, to really becoming, is one step ahead. It’s in the next destination, the next town I get lost in, the next stranger I talk to. It’s always next but never here . . . 

After six months of backpacking and soul-searching across the world, Amber MacLean is flat broke. There are worse places for a twentysomething to be stuck than the Amalfi Coast, but the only way she can earn enough money for a plane ticket home to California is to teach English to two of the brattiest children she has ever met.

It doesn’t help that the children are under the care of their brooding older brother, ex-motorcycle racer Desiderio Larosa. Darkly handsome and oh-so-mysterious, the young master of the crumbling villa tests Amber’s patience and will at every turn—not to mention her hormones.

When her position turns into a full-time nanny gig, Amber grows dangerously closer to the enigmatic recluse. But can she give up the certainty of home for someone whose closely guarded heart feels a world apart from her own?


Karina Halle is the New York Times bestselling author of Where Sea Meets SkyThe PactLove in English, and other wild and romantic reads. A former travel writer and music journalist, she lives on an island off the coast of British Columbia with her husband and her rescue pup, where she drinks a lot of wine, hikes a lot of trails, and devours a lot of books.

So I have been in sort of a slump..... this is the first book I've probably made it through from start to finish in months. Life has been crazy... between house buying being out of school and of course the endless summer activities. Today was a crappy rainy day here in Chicago and I decided to dive in.. because c'mon if any would could break my crappy streak it HAD to be Karina Halle.. who I have come to love love love. Racing the Sun was everything I needed it to be today. Sweet, sexy, brave and a backdrop to die for.... like really I wish I could live there. On a rainy day reading about the beauty of Capri was seriously a breath of fresh air for me. Amber takes on a role I didn't think she was exactly "ready" for but she was in a tight spot and hey sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. Who knew that a job to pay for a plane ticket would become something compared to a Disney story. I loved every moment of Racing the Sun....I was scared.. I was swept away.. I had moments of sorrow and moments of joy. This is an amazing book.  I could sit here and go on and on but I would spoil what should be enjoyed first hand.. so just read it you know you want to.
