My Review
I'd just like to give the gorgeous Michelle a round of applause here! She's managed to create a character that you spend half of your time wanting to smack...and the other half? you just want to take him into your arms and tell him that it's all going to be okay.
Declan Reede is as screwed up and as emotionally stunted as...well as most men i suppose! He uses alcohol, drugs and sex as a way to escape and numb the hurt from losing the only woman who has ever held his heart! From the outside looking in...you'd think that he had it all! a successful V8 driver with beautiful woman dropping at his feet 24/7...what more could a guy want right? he's living the dreammmm! and that's what he's been telling himself since he drove away from his home town at the end of 'Decide'
After a series of ''incidents'' on the track his team manager has told him that he needs to sort his life out before he loses everything, so he heads to London, who should he meet on the flight? None other than the woman that haunts his dreams. Alyssa. Will they both finally be able to set the ghosts to rest? Or will this chance meeting be fates way of opening Pandora's box...well now that would be telling!
It's no secret that i'm a massive fan of Michelle Irwin, the way that she paints a character and infuses them with life and personality, is truly breathtaking. However...i did wonder if she'd be able to realistically capture a believable rendition of a potty mouthed, sex obsessed V8 driver... my worries were groundless! Declan is complex...very complex...his personality has more layers than an Italian Lasagne. He's hard to love, hilarious, stubborn, selfish and a giant pain in the arse...but i defy you not to see his softer side by the end? he's alone and he's hurt and he's a scared little boy.
Absolutely perfect and i can't wait for the next instalment in December!
This book will make you laugh, make you cry and more than anything else...it'll make you beg the author for an earlier release date ;)
5 stars!
