Book 3 of The Redline Series

In a matter of moments, I went from Colt’s pawn to Devlin’s captive.

Doomed to be the casualty of their inane contest to best and break each other, I’m left imprisoned in darkness.

I fight for my life and sanity. Holding on to the small hope that a cocky and sadistic car thief can overcome his own demons long enough to free me.

Before it’s too late

This was the continuing story of Colt and Aubrey. Brake picks up right where Torque left off.
Devlin has Aubrey now and Colt has no clue how to find her. He's exhausted all of his ties with everyone and nobody has seen Devlin for almost a week. Exactly how long Aubrey has been in the hands of him.
While Aubrey is fighting to stay alive in the hands of Devlin his brother Colt is racing around the streets trying to find any clues where they might be. Colt is having a hard time. Th

Good story but I am still having a hard time connecting with them and maybe it's because the story has been broken up into small books throughout???

This isn't going to say verified purchase, but I assure you, it is. I purchased the box set that includes all the books in the series.
If you're reading this separate, this isn't a stand-alone. It's part of a serial series. You must read the previous books first.
This is told in multiple POVs
As my earlier reviews stated, there was no trigger warnings. That all changed, this book has a definite few. There is forced heavy drug use, kidnapping, and other vile things you'll have to read to find out.

This is the third part in a five part series.
May contain triggers for some. Read the warning.

OMG. I had just scratched the surface with the first two books. This one was darker, full of more suspense, and packed of hellava punch in the emotion department. My stomach is in knots right now. I never expected this turn of events, I was blindsided, body slammed. My heart hurts. I can say much about why, but there's one topic that pulls at my heartstrings more so than anything I can read about. It's

Spoiler Ahead This was book 3 in the " The Redline Series". This book was darker than the first two books. Aubrey is but a pawn in a fight between two warring brothers intent on destroying each other. Colt has sworn to protect Aubrey from Devlin in return for the unlimited use of her body for intense and kinky sex. In this book we learn some shocking revelations about Colt’s backstory which helps explain why he is the damaged man he is and why he strives to stay emotionally detached. Colt searc ...more

This is the third book in the Redline series. The game of cat and mouse continues as both brothers via for top spot while using Aubrey as a pawn in their game.

The mind games that are being played and the twists and turns and sheer sick minds has made this book more interesting in who'll come out on top? Will Aubrey survive mind body and soul?

Can and Colt over come Devlin and is Aubrey becoming more than a distraction, can he over come his past to fight his brother for a future for him and Aubrey

I still can not figure out where this story is going, but I guess that's a sign of a good author. Keeps you turning the pages while having characters that hold your attention. I'm not looking forward to Exhaust, I think Aubrey has a tough road ahead of her.

Good series. Not great. I liked it but it wasn't anything super standout in my opinion. Still worth checking out. It's entertaining :)

This one had more action than the previous and I enjoyed it more. Aubrey is missing and Colt is searching for her. Devlin has her and just as you would predict he is drugging her. Then he does something to her that he thinks will push Colt over the edge. I will say after reading the first book I went ahead and preordered all of the books for this series so I feel compelled to read on. If I had not already purchased the other books I am pretty sure that I would not. I am struggling to connect the ...more

The Darkness Continues With Brake

Book 3 picks up Skye Callahan's Redline serial where Torque leaves off. This time dragging us deeper into Colt and Devlin's rivalry when Devlin breaks their agreement. Did we think he'd play fair? Pffft. Devlin is determined to bring Colt to his knees, and Aubrey is the red hot poker he's stabbing into Colt's open wound to do so.

This installment is the darkest yet, and I loved every bit of it. I knew Devlin had absolutely no conscience This guy gives

Dark, Twisted and Intense

Skye Callahan’s The Redline Series is one hell of a dark romance! It is a dark and twisted ride ruled by lust, power-play and revenge, where Aubrey is but a pawn in a fight between two warring brothers intent on destroying each other. Colt has sworn to protect Aubrey from Devlin in return for the unlimited use of her body for his intense and kinky sexcapades. The last instalment, Torque finished on a major cliff hanger as the hapless Aubrey had been taken captive by non

Wow! I know I often say when I start my reviews where do I start but, this one I really am not sure where to start. Maybe I should start with the WARNING: Well Skye Callahan calls it a “Note”

If you’re looking for rainbows, butterflies, and happy endings coated in chocolate and caramel, turn back now! This story deals with dark themes and intense situations that aren’t suitable for sensitive readers. If you’re looking for an intense roller coaster of emotions and situations that will warp y

AHHHHHHHh left hanging again !!

So I am addicted to serials BUT normally I try to stay away until all books are out because I love to feel the suspense and thrill of a cliffy BUT also love to know I can end my questioning by having the next piece. With Brake being the new release I obviously have driven myself crazy and now have to wait to finish this !! I was intrigued from the start , I had read other work by this author so it really wasn't a hard choice. I love the dark and twisted , love the
Peggy Lee (Reading Keeps Me Sane)
WOW! This series has me on edge. Two feuding brothers, only one can come out on top. One brother will do anything possible to brake the other and unfortunately Aubrey is his pawn.

Colt is further turning into a dark knight. That's the best way I can explain him. He struggles against his addiction in order to keep his promise to the woman who controls his heart. His brother, Devlin will do anything to drive him over the edge. Devlin is beyond reparation. He's evil incarnate and what he does is tw

This is dark.

Colt is worried about Aubrey. She was taken by his brother and do hi ng only God knows what to her. His last words to her were "Stay alive ". He needed to find here.

Aubrey was at the hanfs of a man that was twisted and wanted to punish Colt. She kept thinking of what he told her. It was all she could do.

When Colt's brother thought he was done using Aubrey he left his mark on her as a reminder to Colt but would Colt find Aubrey before she ended up like someone from is past. What is h

Following on from where Torque left off, things are going from bad to worse. Devlin is determined to destroy Colt and knowing he's not falling for his plan makes him reassess what's important to Colt....Aubrey. Aubrey has always been stuck between a rock and a hard place but with Devlin kicking things up a notch, will Colt be able to get to her in time? Darker than the previous books, i loved to hate Devlin in this book. Can't wait for more from this series

Omg! I love this series!! Had been waiting patiently on this book and it did not disappoint. It is a really dark series so might not be for everyone but it is extremely well written and the characters are believable. I usually don't like series but I'm making an exception because it's so good!! Can't wait to read the next book!
Oct 07, 2015 rated it it was amazing
Devlin's level of evil is much deeper and darker than I ever anticipated!

Brake is the darkest book thus far for the Redline series. More questions are answered and more pieces of the puzzle fall into place. But one question still remains...How far will Devlin go to break Colt?

Amazing book!! My favorite so far in the series!!
This book was sooo good! I felt so bad for Aubrey I couldn't believe what Devlin was doing to her. And then when we find out why Devlin is doing this to Colt I was surprised at how far Devlin will go. This is a crazy book and I want to know how things are going to end I can't stop reading.

A Good Read

Brake is a gritty, dark romance. It opens up a side of life I've never known. It's scary, yet mesmerizing. I can't wait till the next book comes out. It was a good read.
