Synopsis (from goodreads)
Dyson Vix. The bad boy of Formula One Racing.
The first time I met him he was completely naked, and he couldn’t have cared less.
The second time I saw Dyson, he just stood there, staring at me. His fire suit hung low on his waist, and his body was dripping in sweat, grease and… well, you get the idea.
The ultimate playboy, there isn’t a hairpin turn he can’t handle or a woman he can’t have. Dyson lives life like he drives – hard, determined, and like it might be his last day.
We couldn’t have been more different. After a family tragedy, I’ve been left to raise my nephew, Simon, all alone. Raising him has given me more joy than I could’ve imagined, but it came at a price. He is my entire world, and everything I do is with him in mind. I haven’t had a date in months, instead focusing solely on him. Man troubles are the last thing we need, especially the kind reckless thrill seeker Dyson Vix would bring.
But fate has other ideas.
I’ve been thrust into his fast-paced world, and the more time I spend with him — the more I see of the troubled man behind the roguish charm — the more my resolve crumbles. Our chemistry is undeniable but isn’t without risk. Jealousy and threats to my home life mean I could lose everything I’ve worked so hard to protect.
The stakes have never been higher.
Will we make it, or are we destined to crash and burn?
The Fastlane Series books are standalone romance novels featuring unique lovers and happy endings. No cliffhangers! Surge is Dyson and Ava’s story and is Book #1 in the Fastlane Series.
First of all I was born in Le Mans in France, I don’t know if this city says something to you but there is the 24 hours of Le Mans. I love formula one and cars so this book was for me, obviously.
This is the story of Ava, a young nurse and Dyson, a formula one pilot with a big mouth.
Ava is a sweet girl who had a hard life. She’s raising her nephew, Simon, alone and trying to give him a better life. She must left her dreams of career aside to provide Simon with better study. During her day at the clinic, she’s meeting Dyson Vix, a formula one’s pilot and bad boy, hot and sexy who loves women mostly in his bed. She’s attracted by him but she’s always thinking about her nephew and don’t want a man in their life. Simon is her top priority. She will end up taking a job with the team and working with Dyson. It will not be simple and a person from her past will come back sooner than later.
Ava is a really good character, she’s selfless, very kind, and it’s amazing how problems always find her. I like seeing her interact with Dyson, they are so funny, sweet and hot. Even if the sport is formula one and fast, the book is a slow pace romance. Dyson and Ava attraction are growing slowly. Dyson is enjoyable, yes he has some problems and he doesn’t open his heart but I like it when he takes care of Ava. He’s a sweet boy with anger and authority problems.
Simon is a sweet boy, I love his relation with Ava and he didn’t have chance with other kids. Jillian is also a character I like, she’s Ava’s best friend and she’s helping her with Simon. Jillian has always good advice for Ava and their relation is important in the story.
This is the first Sloan Storm’s book I read and it was awesome, I like her writing style, it’s simple, hot and fast. I would have liked that the passages on Dyson are a little more thorough, as much on his feelings to Ava as on his “disease”.
Surge is the first book in the series and I’m impatient to read the next one. It makes me think of Fast Track series by Erin McCarthy.
About the author
Sloan Storm is a verbally difficult, yet physically generous, writer who pens imaginative yarns based on dominant men and the women who challenge them. As such, power plays and passion are the heart of each and every story. The writer’s creative tendencies may drift as the mood strikes, but the essence of all tales told wind up back at the same place… the polarizing difference between the sexes.
After all, what else is there in life?
