Can a rookie mistake lead to love?

Mitch Griffiths is an ordinary man just trying to make ends meet. He lost everything thanks to his ex: his restaurant, his partner, his home. So, when his dad gifts him a ticket to the British Grand Prix and a Silverstone Driving Experience, well, a change of scene for the weekend couldn’t hurt, could it? Even if Formula 1 is kind of boring.

Robert Andilet is a veteran F1 driver on his returning season after a six-year absence. He has a lot to learn, not least of which is how to deal with the media attention, a “rivalry” between him and his rookie teammate, as well as his attraction to a man who readily admits he thinks F1 is tedious. It was a rookie mistake to let Mitch walk away after their first meeting, will Robert make the same mistake again?

This M/M romance from Beth Laycock features a famous/ordinary man, older MCs, and is set in the high-octane world of Formula 1 featuring fast cars, spectacular crashes, heated rivalries, and of course, an HEA

Each book in the Lights Out collection is a standalone story, and the books can be read in any order.

As I pulled the Lotus to a stop in front of the driving school, I still couldn’t believe Mitch thought I was an instructor. How could he not know I was an F1 driver? It wasn’t that I got recognized a lot—it was only my first year back after six away after all—but I was an F1 driver. At the circuit. On a race weekend.

But after he had stalled the car on the first attempt, I was beginning to believe he was clueless around cars and he had no idea who I was. And I was surprised at how much I liked that he didn’t.

Plus, he was hot. He had the whole “silver fox” vibe going on. His hair was shaved at the sides, but the long strands swept back on top were silver, yet his eyebrows were jet black like the square frames of his glasses that screamed nerd.

Except the tattoos on his arms said he’d have no trouble fucking someone over if they called him that to his face. He had a gauge in his left ear and a cuff with a black cat charm dangling from it that was a little skew-whiff and seemed out of place with the rest of his appearance.

And those lips. I licked my own at the sight of their plump redness emphasized by the salt-and-pepper beard surrounding them that I wanted to stroke to find out if it was as soft as it looked.

My gaze dropped to his arse as he scrambled out of the car—something else I’d like to get my hands on. But that was never going to happen at a Grand Prix weekend. There wasn’t a single out F1 driver, not that I believed for a second that meant I was the only bi, or queer, man on the grid.

Mitch made a soft noise sounding a bit like a cross between a cough and a laugh that pulled me out of my head. “Come on, you get a certificate to show you drove around the circuit. I’ll show you where you can pick it up from.” Libby had told me Mitch wasn’t the same as the other fans who’d been interviewed earlier and that he would get a record of his experience although she hadn’t elaborated on why. And I hadn’t cared enough at that time to ask, but now I wished I had.

“It’s not graded, is it? Like, he stalled the car, so he only gets a bronze.”

I chuckled but shook my head. “Nah. It’s a participation certificate and you definitely smashed that.”

Mitch opened his mouth and closed it again as a lovely pink stain crept over his cheekbones.
