Publisher's Summary

Luke Jensen lived on the wrong side of the tracks all his life, but that never stopped him from realizing his dream and making it a reality. Now, the king of the street racing scene, he finally has everything he wants and he won't let anyone take it away from him.

Violet Barnes lived a sheltered life growing up, never fitting in except in the books that she loved. After losing her parents, she forges forward, creating her own little world, content in being alone.

When Violet stumbles into Luke's shop, sparks fly but neither can let go of the hard lessons they learned growing up.

Will Violet give Luke a chance to prove he's not just another gear head? Or will Luke write Violet off before they even have a chance to see that they both need to let go of their past, and focus on the future?

Due to sexual content and profanity, this book is recommended for ages 18+.

    "AN OKAY LISTEN.. BUT SADLY IMO NOTHING SPECIAL"

    Violet is a Librarian, she lives alone in an apartment block full of elderly people, her parents are dead and she doesn't have friends.. so when a 14 year old student called Frankie, who has been a daily visitor to the Library, needs a lift home because her busy oldest brother Luke had forgotten to pick her up yet again - Violet steps in and takes the stranded girl home. However, instead of being grateful Luke isn't happy.. and, due to a misunderstanding, he misjudges Violet and callously shows his contempt and dislike for her.. which lasts for their first few meetings - but then things change and Luke begins to see her in a new way.

    Luke and his two brothers run the busy Skid Row Kings Garage, they all live together and they are heavily involved in Street Racing with Luke being the driver. He's trying to juggle everything and he doesn't appreciate a stuck up Librarian interfering in his, and his sister's, lives. But, through various heated encounters, Luke soon realizes he may have totally misread and misjudged Violet.

    I don't know what happened but early into the story I lost my connection to both the hero and also the heroine who had started out as enemies slamming doors, badmouthing each other and speeding off from one another. But, after their third or fourth encounter, the plot did a 180 degree turn as Luke saw his mistake and then they couldn't keep their hands off each other and shortly after that they were in love. For me, there was nothing exciting here, no riveting plot, no likeable main characters, a bit of angst and drama with a reckless aunt and a bitchy rival but no moving scenes depicting two people in love.. just no depth to the story. I also didn't feel any chemistry between the h/h and I was underwhelmed with the sex scenes too. Dual POV's and good narration.

    Worth a credit? I'm sorry but I have to tell it like I felt it and sadly Luke and Violet's love story was a very light contemporary romance, it's not memorable and I wouldn't wish to visit it again. So, for all those reasons and that there are far far better and much much 'meatier' listens out there, I personally opt for no don't spend your hard earned credit on this.. but perhaps a $4.95 sale purchase. But hey, at the time of writing this, three other people have given it 5* so what do I know!!?

    "Sexy read!"

    I don't listen to many audio books but I was captivated by listening to Jessica Eastwick read Downshift! Brilliant flow and tone to compliment this hot sexy read.
