Book Description:


I’m the girl who’s always picking up the pieces of other people’s mistakes. 
Until tonight.
I accidentally cause one false start, and now I’m being pulled into a guy’s car—who everyone only knows as Falcon—before an illegal street race.
He may not want anyone to truly know who he is, but he’s met his match. 
Game on, Falcon.


People know I run these races. 
They know not to mess with me, or my car.
When the identity of the girl who causes a false start is revealed, I have to make an example of her.
Letting her see who I am was never the plan.
Neither was running into her the next day as my brother’s new assistant. 
She said she wanted nothing to do with me, but when I yank her into a janitor’s closet, making sure she keeps my secret is the last thing on my mind.
She may want more than my secrets, but my racing may be the last thing I try to hide.

Our Review:

Reviewed by Donna ~ 4 stars
***ARC received for an honest review***

“You had me at Godiva.”

Jeannine Colette and Lauren Runow deliver a fast-paced, action-packed book that read as quick as its hero drove. Underground street car racing is the theme in this book, and Austin Sexton certainly lives up to his reputation. This book was hot, the Sexton brothers are certainly going to burn up our kindles, and I cannot wait to read Bryce’s book.

Austin Sexton was a man that had his fair share of issues, and his way of letting off steam was the need for speed. While by day he was a successful businessman, on the track he was a formidable foe, one that every street racer wanted to beat. His reputation preceded him, and his skill and success on both fronts warranted the title. Underneath all the bravado and persona was a man though, a little broken and running from his nightmares.

“I’m so fucking tired.”
“From what?”

Jalyn was a great heroine, and probably only someone with her demeanour would be able to put up with Austin. Jalyn was his equal, her sass and good heart kept Austin on his toes, their banter was on point and their chemistry off the charts. Jalyn had Austin wrapped around her finger with effortless ease, and the poor sucker didn’t even realise it, but when you meet the one, the heart knows and just won’t let go.

“If you’re ready to stop running, then I’m willing to sit with you.”

I am a huge fan of Jeannine Colette and have read a fair few Lauren Runow books too, but I couldn’t tell you wrote what, the writing was that seamless and effortless, cohesive and the flow was perfect. The character connection was perfection, with all characters and the buildup to the Sexton family as a whole certainly has me salivating for more. There is one person introduced that I want to see the back of and I’m hoping that throughout these books a certain Sexton sees the light and sends someone on their merry way, after all, there is always one bad apple.
