There’s a new kid in town, and he’s hell on wheels.
From what we’ve heard, it may be because 
he knows exactly what hell’s like.
Lonely.
Scorching. 
Unforgiving.
You may know his brother, 
the NRR hotshot 
(and former GearShark cover model) 
Lorhaven. 
It’s only natural a driver with 
his background and family connections 
has sped his racecar 
into the newest, hottest division.
But that’s not all.
Arrow may be following in big bro’s tread marks, 
but he doesn’t plan to stay there.
He’s swerving onto the road less traveled… 
and a lot more controversial.
he’s opening up about his private struggles with sexuality 
to tell a story that’s gone unheard until now.
One thing’s for sure; Arrow may have a painful past, 
but his foot is heavy on the accelerator. 
With speed like this, he’s bound to leave everything behind 
nothing but a #blur.

This one was probably the biggest disappointment of the year for me so far.  I loved the first two books in this series, and we met this character in those books.  I was really looking forward to learning his story.  A trigger warning would have been appreciated for this book. Everything up until this point in the story was absolutely disgusting, but I had to call it quits after a brutal on page rape scene involving the main character. No, thank you! 

His dad also wants him to be straight so bad that he forces him to not only go to a strip club, but pays a woman to sleep with him and has a video camera set up so he can watch it on his tablet in the other room to make sure it happens?!?!?! Then when he can't follow through on sleeping with the girl, his father disowns him, and he leaves only to get beat up and raped by a so-called homophobe in an alley. Nope.  Not for me. Sorry, not sorry.

  1. Yeah, I heard things about this one and took a pass.

    That thing with his father is just plain weird and creepy.

    1. I should have checked out some other reviews before I picked this one up but I loved the first two so much that I didn't even think to. Still so disappointed

    1. Right?!?! Craziness! I didn't expect anything like that at all. I read the first two books in this series and absolutely loved them so I didn't think anything of it when I picked this one up. Definitely should have come with a warning.
