Official Description: This is book #2 of the Custom Culture series

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.

My Take:

Clutch and Taylor, you knew that was going to be a weird story from the beginning. I am not really sure how old Clutch is, but he has in own business with Taylor’s brother and he is fairly successful. He’s been pining for this underage girl forever, now she’s 18. However at the end of Freefall she was shipped off to boarding school. Now she’s back and the crazy begins. I honestly wasn’t feeling Clutch or Taylor. Their romance was weird, the maturity level of this whole story is just well beneath a new adult audience. I still get past the fact that Taylor is still in highschool. That’s just…it’s borderline ok. Everything was just predictable, the romance wasn’t that hot. I liked Barrett alright, he was better towards the end, but over all the book was just mediocre. I was hoping something more would happen with Barrett and the neighbor lady, but that was all a smoke screen. Just not impressed, sad to say.


“I remember watching you from the back seat with those same big hands gripping the steering wheel, and all I could think was someday I want those massive arms to hold me. I knew nothing bad could happen to me wrapped in those unbelievable arms.”
