Released: 5th November 2013
Synopsis:When Taylor Flinn’s parents shipped her off to an aunt for her last year of high school, James “Clutch” Mason had convinced himself it was for the best. Taylor, the wild, impulsive and far-too-appealing seventeen-year-old had been driving him nuts. Her school girl crush on him had been the last thing he needed. Now he had time to concentrate on his booming classic car part business, his new found love-- drag racing, and keeping his twenty-year-old brother Barrett out of trouble. But when Taylor returns from her aunt’s more grown up, utterly seductive, and attached to another guy, Clutch realizes that the only thing he ever needed or wanted was Taylor Flinn.
She came around the corner, unexpectedly and like a hurricane of stars. My mind went completely blank. I hung up and stuck the phone in my pocket.
Taylor’s long lashes curtained her smooth cheeks as she dropped her gaze.
The adrenaline rush left behind from getting my hands on a sixty-five Shelby morphed into an explosion of every emotion I’d ever felt. I lunged forward and grabbed her hand. She gasped as I dragged her around the back of the building. I pressed her up against the bricks and stared down at her.

This is the second book in the custom culture series but can be read as a standalone.
I loved loved this book. I already wanted more of Clutch and Taylor from their supporting roles in Freefall.
This book brings you the story of Clutch and Taylor and also gives you more of Nix, Scotlyn, Dray, Cassie and we meet Barrett, Jason and Gus.
Clutch is a 6ft plus beast of a man…. He is strong, hot, and sexy with a huge heart…. He runs a classic car parts business with Jason, who is Taylor’s big brother.
Taylor is eighteen old high school wild child who has had a crush on Clutch since she was sixteen….her parents sent her away to live with her aunt because they believe she is out of control….
Taylor returns on her eighteenth birthday and is allowed to stay as long as she agrees to her parents rules…. Main one being she stays away from Clutch.
Clutch has denied his feelings for Taylor for years because she is underage and forbidden. He stays away from her but just because she is out of sight and reach doesn't mean she is out of thought.
Clutch isn't aware Taylor is back until he runs into her at work….their chemistry is sizzling hot, once their eyes lock on one another its little no one else exists.
Now that Taylor is eighteen, Clutch is finding it harder and harder to stay away….. A hot passionate kiss pops the cork on both their bottled up feelings for one another…..now there is no going back.
Taylor’s family think her obsession with Clutch is just a school girl crush which she will grow out of but Taylor knows different…. For Taylor, Clutch is the one….he makes her feel like she is home.
Taylor goes against her over barring family and pursues Clutch….
There is many obstacles on the road for happiness for Clutch and Taylor but true love like theirs is always worth fighting for….
This story had me gripped from the first page and I wasn't able to put it down….. I cannot wait for more from this series.
