I’ve never been one to follow the rules…or the law, for that matter. But when you find yourself behind bars and being offered the opportunity of a lifetime, you take it. I agreed to race motorcycles for Johnny Knight. A very powerful man who wanted me on his team, even knowing I was a liability. But will he still feel that way once he finds out that I had a one-night stand with his daughter? I didn’t mean for it to happen. I didn’t even know who she was until she walked into his office wearing my shirt from the night before. Too bad that was all she wanted—one night. It didn’t really matter who she was, I wanted more. So when she ran, I followed. I should have let her go. That would have been best for both of us. But I have never done what was right, so why start now? I’ve always been willing to take a risk, no matter what it would cost me. And I knew she was worth it all.
I’m Erik Dashling; you can call me Dash. This is my story of how I willingly risked one dream for another. But everyone knows that not all dreams come true.

Best read in a long while, absolutely loved this book! I couldn’t stop reading it once I’d started and read it straight through. Dash is a one night stand kinda guy who has always lived life on the edge. He’s arrested for reckless driving and the rich and famous for being a race team owner, Mr. Knight bails him out of jail on the condition he is the first member of his new motorcycle racing team. Dash accepts and decides to throw one last party before he goes “straight” – this is where he meets Tabatha. Tabatha is just coming out of a relationship with a very controlling man who is refusing to accept that she wants nothing to do with him. She’s not looking for anything new but that all changes when she meets Dash.
Their story is so well written and my heart absolutely broke at the end. I was in tears for the last 4 chapters – bravo to the author for the connection she built. This book was brilliantly written and the plot is fantastic. I can’t say enough how much I enjoyed reading it and I highly recommend it!
"There are some particularly difficult scenes in this book, all I can say is that they were superbly written, poetic even, Shantel outdone herself in the delivery of the climax to the story, shell shocked would be how I felt..." ~ Book Hooked Brit
