⚑ Austin ⚑ Lauren Runow & Jeannine Colette ⚑

Im the girl whos always picking up the pieces of other peoples mistakes.
Until tonight.
I accidentally cause one false start, and now Im being pulled into a guys carwho everyone only knows as Falconbefore an illegal street race.
He may not want anyone to truly know who he is, but hes 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 brothers new assistant.
She said she wanted nothing to do with me, but when I yank her into a janitors 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.

ARC Received for an honest review

Buckle up and keep arms and legs inside the car, as you are going to be taken on the ride of your life!
Wow, what a great book!  We are taken into the world of illegal street racing, and you want to be in this race to a HEA.
Austin and Jalynn's story is a full throttle romance that will have you wanting more.
After their unusual meeting, our lovelies navigate their way to a relationship. 
There is so much more to Austin than meets the eye, and when we learn more about him, my heart hurt for him.  It was not something I was expecting.
Jalynn is full of sass and snark, and I love that she stands up for herself. And when she goes toe to toe with Austin, boy do those sparks fly.
I adore Austin's brothers, particularly Bryce. However there is also a character that I want to stab with a rusty knife through my kindle - you will know who I mean when you meet them.
We also get set up for the next book, which I am impatiently waiting for.

Ms Colette is a new to me author, however I have read quite a few of Ms Runow's books.  The story and characters flowed seamlessly, so I would not have know this was by two authors.

I can't wait for the next in this series.


Lauren Runow is the author of multiple Adult Contemporary Romance novels, some more dirty than others. When Lauren isn't writing, you'll find her listening to music, at her local CrossFit, reading, or at the baseball field with her boys. Her only vice is coffee, and she swears it makes her a better mom!

Lauren is a graduate from the Academy of Art in San Francisco and is the founder and co-owner of the community magazine she and her husband publish. She lives in Northern California with her husband and two sons.

A graduate of Wagner College and the New York Film Academy, Jeannine went on to become a Segment Producer for television shows on CBS and NBC. She left the television industry to focus on her children and pursue a full-time writing career. She lives in New York with her husband, the three tiny people she adores more than life itself, and a rescue pup named Wrigley.
