Experience Declan’s complete story. Includes RONE-nominated novella “Decide” and an exclusive bonus novella “Decode”.

As high school sweethearts, Declan Reede and Alyssa Dawson didn’t always see eye-to-eye. Especially when it came to his dream of being a driver in the ProV8 series. When he’s offered the chance at the career of his dreams, Declan straps himself in for the ride regardless of the cost.

Older, but not wiser, Declan is on the path to becoming a racing legend. Only, regret haunts him around the track and threatens to send him off-course. When a chance encounter offers the opportunity to correct his mistakes, Declan must learn to manage the curves if he wants to claim the ultimate prize.

MY REVIEW:
     Growing up together since they were nine and being the best of friends with Josh and Alyssa Dawson was easy.  Their parents were Declan Reede’s parents.  Being that he was an only child, it was nice having built in playmates.
     When in high school around their sixteenth birthday they explored a kiss and fireworks rocked their world.  It was on like nobody’s business.  They would meet regularly at their park on a table and talk and make out.  Josh was okay with it he liked Declan he mad Lys happy.  Yet, their relationship was always an on again of again one.  You would never meet two people with hotter tempers. Their love for one another was deep but their ability to talk it through after an argument was not.
     Two weeks before the end of school at the prom night hotel they were to stay in they get into a royal fight.  This fight was beyond big it was over how they were going to spend their lives.  You see Declan was getting ready to sign on the line to reach for his dream of pro V8 racecar driving for the team he always dreamed about.
     Lys on the other hand had been accepted to Uni and was trying to talk him into going so he had an education to fall back on in case the car gig didn’t work out.  Not knowing Declan’s dad had been brain washing him behind her back.  Saying she was trying to trap him through marriage and having children.
     In Declan’s moment of panic he said some harsh things to Lys and she ran out of their room.  The same room that had just been so perfect.  Where they made love for the first time.  While that all flashed before him then is when he realized what, he did he ran after her but she was gone.  By the time, he gets home her brother Josh is there and beats Declan so badly he had to be taken to hospital.
     Later when Lys tries to call he won’t take it.  The next day he does say to meet at their park table.  He tells her he never wants to see her again.  When he turns around and she sees how he’s beaten she is startled.  She tries to go to him he back away.  He says no she did enough by having Josh do this to him.  She gasps.  She had no clue.  He tells he he’s leaving never to return and never to call him again.
     He would come to regret those words.  See how that one night changed the lives of Declan and Alyssa forever.  See if they really could keep away from each other when they had such a strong bond from childhood.
     I love the multitude of layers that Declan has to go through in this book.  Yet, through the whole thing he still wants to accept no responsibility for anything emotional yet he wants it fixed.  His way.

     Although at the beginning she was so strong with her opinions when she is reunited she seems broken to the point of not standing up to him and making him take responsibility for his actions.  Ownership.  The writing keeps you totally engaged.  I give this: 5 stars.  Provided by author for honest review.  Follow up at:  www.1rad-readerreview.com.
