Review - Set The Pace by Kim Karr

I bring you my review of Kim Karr's Set The Pace today. I've never been disappointed by a Kim Karr book. I definitely recommend it and any of Kim's other works. 

Every city needs a hero, but Detroit's white knight just might be a villain.
A rough childhood branded Jasper Storm trouble. A bad boy. Not worth a damn. His love of cars was the only thing that could battle his delinquency. With the need for speed in his blood, he overcame his wayward ways. Mostly. All grown up, the broken city of Detroit hails him their shining star. And the man behind a new cutting-edge automobile is ready to turn this bankrupt town around.

Everything he does in life is fast. He talks fast, f*cks fast, and drives fast. But when one reckless turn brings him face-to-face with the childhood he has tried very hard to forget, he finds himself on the edge of wondering if he shouldn't slow down.

Charlotte Lane was the tomboy who lived next door. She was his best friend. He was her protector. Then tragedy struck and she disappeared, forever--or so he thought.
Jasper has many reasons to hate Charlotte and keep his distance, but she's infiltrating his every thought and he can't stay away. Back in town with an agenda of her own, she should push him aside. Make him turn around. Walk away herself. Yet she can't.

With the past lurking between them, they proceed with caution. That is until one sex-filled night leads to murder. When Detroit's biggest ally suddenly becomes suspect number one, will Charlotte--the girl Jasper once kept safe--be the one to save him?

Where to start, where to start? I went in to Set The Pace without really knowing anything about the storyline or plot. I just knew it was a novel by Kim Karr and that it was a duet. As I’ve enjoyed every novel I’ve read of Kim’s, I knew it would be good. And boy was it. From the gripping prologue to the surprising ending, Set The Pace will take you on a wild ride. Jasper and Charlotte’s story as childhood friends reuniting is filled with interesting twists and turns. I’m excited to see where Kim takes us next! 

Kim is a daydreamer. So much so that if daydreaming could be a hobby it would be her favorite. It's how her stories are born and how they take root. An imagination that runs wild is something to be thankful for, and she is very thankful. :)

She grew up in New York and now lives in Florida with her husband and four kids. She's always had a love for reading books and writing. Being an English major in college, she wanted to teach at the college level but that was not to be. She went on to receive an MBA and became a project manager until quitting to raise her family. Kim currently works part-time with her husband and with the rest of her time embraces one of her biggest passions--writing.

Kim wears a lot of hats! Writer, book-lover, wife, soccer-mom, taxi driver, and the all around go-to person of her family. However, she always finds time to read.
