Publisher's Summary

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. Now that he's all grown up, the broken city of Detroit hails him as its 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.

Contains mature themes.

Cliffhanger

Pretty good book but there is a sequel that has not been published yet. I'm really tired of having to buy 2 or 3 books to get a story that could be just 1 long book. Also would like to be notified before I purchase the book that you have to buy additional books to get the entire story.

Cliffhanger!!!

Would you listen to Set the Pace again? Why?

Yes...great story

What was one of the most memorable moments of Set the Pace?

When Jake and Charlotte get together as a couple.

Have you listened to any of CJ Bloom and Sebastian York ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes - As usual Sebastian York hits it out of the ballpark. CJ's voice is very grating on the nerves when she tries to do annoyed.....Uh!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

As they remember childhood memories and how Jasper always took care of her.

Any additional comments?

ABSOLUTELY HATE CLIFFHANGERS LIKE THIS WHEN THE NEXT BOOK HAS NOT BEEN RELEASED!!!! READ THIS AUTHORS, IT IS ABOUT ENJOYMENT NOT FRUSTRATION!!!

Motor City Love

The book has everything hope, mystery, murder, romance, hot sex, speed & a whopping cliffhanger. I am so disappointed that book 2 is not yet available on Audible but I will be the first to pre order when the time comes. this was the first book I read by this author and I'm impressed with the depth of a book I thought would only be about the sex & love. As usual Sebastian York kills it as Jasper Storm. CJ was good but not my fav lady narrator.
hope you enjoy the book as much as I did#

So entertaining to listen to.

I wanted to reread Set the Pace before the next book comes out. I decided to get the audio book . I am so glad I did. The voices of Jasper and Charlie were perfect. I really enjoyed listening to it. Love this book and loved the audio version as well. I hope the same people narrate the next book.

Sebastian rocks Jasper but CJs a forget me not!

Unfortunately I found the female delivery long breathy paragraphs one dimensionally provided the same emotions regardless of the circumstances happening, the characterization/delivery was flat with redundant inflections. The book is going on well but it is a cliffhanger so get ready to hang.

Thrilling and Exotic Pace...🔥💋🔥💋

Really enjoyed this book❤️💋❌⭕️
Set the Pace has all the goodies we romantic gals ❤️ love to lust over.
It has just the right amount of angst, hot panty melting moments, bad boy we hate to love, interesting storyline, murder, plot twists, danger & romance.
Yes it’s a cliffhanger, but as both books in this duet are available and both are in the romance/escape package... no sweat off my brow 😉
York’s narration as usual is hot hot hot and perfect for badboy Jasper. He really has one of the sexiest male voices out there... rawrrrr!
I’m not a huge fan of Ms Bloom’s narration though. I first heard her when she narrated The Last Riders series, by Jamie Begley but it still became one of my fav listens & I highly recommend the series to others. Her voice may just be my own personal quirk, I find her annoying but again, tolerable. With that said, This book was WELL worth my time and I would hate that sticking point to discourage you from this download... it’s awesome!

Good story, but.....

I really struggled to finish this book...skipped to get to the last chapter and to my dismay it's a cliffhanger....I don't know if it was the narrator, but the female was soooo annoying....

wish Sebastian read the whole book

LOVE Sebastian York's performance but CJ was horrible. She was either whispering so I couldn't hear or yelling and making me deaf from my earphones. Very disappointing . Wish Sebastian read the whole book!
