Breakdown by Amanda Lance
Charlotte Ferro is about to jump.
Yet nothing ruins a perfect good suicide attempt worse than an handsome do-gooder. After William O'Reilly convinces her to take one last ride with him, Charlotte finds herself forgetting about her own problems and enjoying a world of which she never dreamed.
Now addicted to the rush of fast cars and cool criminals, Charlotte finds herself leaning less towards the ledge and more towards the arms of her savior. But with reasons of his own foe keeping Charlotte safe from herself, William is reluctant to involve her in his criminal undertakings. Will his career choice keep them apart? Will Charlotte's painful past?
This book was right up my alley with the cars, I really did like it.
Charlotte Ferro is wanting to die and she has everything planned out, until William O'Reilly talks her off the ledge. All it takes is one ride with him to start questioning her own sanity. I love that they started out as friends before their relationship, only it took Charlotte a bit to realize it.
William O'Reilly also has demons of his own. As he introduces Charlotte into the car racing scene and other things, she tends to love the rush of it. So now he has to deal with the aftermath of an adrenaline junkie that Charlotte has become. While all this happens, they are slowly getting to know each other
But as much as I liked this book I thought it kinda drag out a bit in the beginning, but the cars and the way Amanda Lance wrote really made up for it. Although it was a good read, I thought the ending was a bit rushed and could of been a bit longer. Other than that this book was good, and if your into cars and racing then read Breakdown, you'll love it.
I gave Breakdown
