Not every relationship is about love.
The odometer on my sex life was stuck at zero the day my mother dragged home a husband I’d never met. Dale brought his two grown sons to help pack and move us into their house. Both were hard-bodied and handsome, but Caine didn’t speak to me. Colt, on the other hand, said crude stuff like, “Wanna ride with me? Then I’m gonna need gas or ass,” but I couldn’t take my eyes off his rippling muscles and challenging blue eyes.
Some are about speed, sex, and defiance.
When Colt offered me a ride to school, I thought the ‘gas or ass’ thing was a joke, but he wasn’t kidding. Though he barely touched me, he shattered the innocence I couldn’t wait to shed. Even then, I sensed I’d never be the same. He and Caine soon upped the stakes, putting me behind the wheel of cars that could reach insane speeds. They kept challenging me to find my inner wild child, pairing illegal drag races with high-octane sex games, games like ‘winner gets head’.
And some are about trying to break you.
It wasn’t long before I was hooked, but I always planned to walk away. Then everything spun out of control and walking wasn’t an option.
I had to run.
This was offered to me as a free digital book and I almost passed it by because of the title. It just sounded vulgar.

And then I thought , “who am I kidding -I read vulgar books all the time”, so I downloaded it and almost completed it in one sitting.
It really is one of the nastiest books that I have read in a very long time.
Shelby’s mom marries Dale out of the blue without telling her and they are moved into his house with his two sons, Colt and Caine. These boys are half brothers, same father, different mothers and the mothers did;t want them. Dale and his two sons are BIG into NASCAR and quarter-mile drag racing soon Shelby is right along with them. The loser of the race has to give up sexual favors and she later finds out that Colt, whom she has a huge crush on, has been pimping her out behind her back.She feels like a whore and knows that if her Mom found out she wouldn’t believe that her step-brothers would do that. The thing is Shelby enjoys all the sex and feels conflicted about it so she can’t wait to leave for college. One of the brothers hides her acceptance letter to a university and things take a drastic turn and Shelby hitchhikes out-of-town and goes to the university hoping to plead with the Dean to let her stay. She is accepted and doesn’t go home for almost four years.
It’s a great story and in the next book, which I’m reading now, you find out something about the brothers and all the lies they have told to Shelby.
