Velocity  

Velocity (2004)

   
  An ambitious actor and a rookie racing driver find themselves - and each other - through the fast paced world of Formula One.
  Book Description (from back cover)

Matt Santini is discontented. An unhappily closeted gay actor, he's just lost his lover and is fast approaching thirty without so much as a decent soap opera callback in sight.

24 year old Richard Lucas has even bigger problems. The newest recruit of fading Formula One team Logan Racing, he's fighting to escape the omnipresent shadow of his ace older brother as well as his burgeoning sexuality.

After Matt wins a role in hip new TV drama Nightsearcher (think: Buffy on wheels), the two men begin a secret affair that takes them all over the globe on a collision course between career and companionship in which there can only be one victor.

"Robin Tamblyn follows up backdoor-to-Tinseltown blockbuster King of Hollywood with Velocity, a steamy, adrenaline-rush, fast paced novel mixing hot guys, sexy shenanigans and Formula One racing. Written with verve and a youthful edge, Velocity takes you on the inside track to the macho world of racing, where sex and the need for speed meet head on. Fasten your seat belts readers, Velocity is one pleasure-trip of a ride!"
