A rough childhood branded Jasper Storm trouble. A bad boy. Not worth a damn. His love of cars was the only thing that could battle his delinquency. With the need for speed in his blood, he overcame his wayward ways. Mostly. All grown up, the broken city of Detroit hails him their shining star. And the man behind a new cutting-edge automobile is ready to turn this bankrupt town around.
Everything he does in life is fast. He talks fast, f*cks fast, and drives fast. But when one reckless turn brings him face-to-face with the childhood he has tried very hard to forget, he finds himself on the edge of wondering if he shouldn’t slow down.
Charlotte Lane was the tomboy who lived next door. She was his best friend. He was her protector. Then tragedy struck and she disappeared, forever—or so he thought.
Jasper has many reasons to hate Charlotte and keep his distance, but she’s infiltrating his every thought and he can’t stay away. Back in town with an agenda of her own, she should push him aside. Make him turn around. Walk away herself. Yet she can’t.
With the past lurking between them, they proceed with caution. That is until one sex-filled night leads to murder. When Detroit’s biggest ally suddenly becomes suspect number one, will Charlotte—the girl Jasper once kept safe—be the one to save him?

Where do I start?
I at first didn’t like this story. I felt that it was going to slow, but after thinking about it more…yes, it went slower than I would have liked, there is a lot in this story and the author needed to fill you in on what happened in the past, to get you to where the characters are today.
You have a HOT guy named Jasper who wants to live life in the fast lane. He has always liked fast cars and there is a scene in the story, where he likes fast women also. WOW.
And you also have Charlotte, AKA “Charlie”. She was known to Jasper as Charlie when they were younger. They were best friends and did everything together. Now though, they are older and it has been years since they have seen each other.
A tragedy happened when they were eight years old and their lives were separated. Jasper always wondered what happened to Charlie, but there is some history with her father that caused Jasper to not only dislike her father, but her also.
Years later, they reconnect, and boy is it HOT! They try to get to know each other again, and their friendship they had when they were younger isn’t lost.
Jasper is accused of doing something that he didn’t do, but no one knows who did it.
I would truly consider this story a suspense with some hotness thrown into it.
Warning… it doesn’t end with a cliffy that you are going to feel okay about. You are going to want to rip through your e-reader and scream… WHAT HAPPENS NEXT! (Okay, maybe that is what I did, you may act a bit more mature.)
This story has so much going on. It has friendship with 4 guys who have had troubled pasts.
Family members who don’t act like family, and love that you have had when you are eight years old that still lasts when you are older. Makes me wonder, what ever happened to the boys I used to climb trees with. LOL
