See what our team is saying about Austin

A story packed with great characters with troubled pasts and presents. These two were certainly a perfect match. It also stands out a little from the regular billionaire stories with the Fast and the Furious kind of theme. Lastly, what an ending! Who is the mysterious boy?

This the first book I have read by Lauren Runow and I Loved it. Business man by day, Street racer by night Austin Sexton who goes by Falcon set up illegal street races. Jalynn goes to her first race to see what all the hype is about and accidentally cause Falcon to false start. It just gets better and better after that. Jalynn is funny and strong and doesn't take anything from Austin. She throws everything back at him. The quick witted banter goes on throughout the story. I really loved the start of this series and can't wait to see what happens with the other brothers.

Austin may be a searching for the adrenaline high when he does street races but he is also a businessman trying to keep his mom's dream alive. Jalynn is trying to pursue a career in journalism and lucks out when she gets the job as an assistant to the President of Print Publication at Sexton media. Jalynn goes to a street race and messes up the race for the famous, Falcon, and life for her gets more exciting and complicated. The banter between the characters was fantastic and the flow of the progression of their relationship was great. I would've liked to have read more about Jalynn's childhood instead of the small snippets here and there. Fantastic book with wonderful characters!

A millionaire hiding a secret life, a sassy gal hiding her own issues. When they connect it will leave your heart racing. The banter between Austin and Jalynn was funny, sweet, and schmexy! A fun story that's a great light read and the last line in the epilogue definitely leaves you wanting to know Bryce's story.

A story of fast, street car racing and a broken man who has gone through life with no one he can rely on. A gorgeous girl with chutzpah, who loves and is loyal to her own. A secret life, separate from the million dollar business man, and how in the end love can conquer all. "Now, tell me another one of your secrets."

You will love Austin and Jalynn from the beginning. The banter back and forth was perfect. There was so much to love about this book.
