Can I just say that I absolutely loved this book! It was so sweet and romantic and it made me feel so mushy and gushy on the inside. If I could describe the book with one emoji, it would be the one with the hearts as eyes. Last night I stayed up till like 1.30am without realising it because I desperately wanted to keep reading. In fact I was so sad when it was over because it just made my heart melt.

Okay. I shall get a grip now.

So this book starts with Charlotte attempting to jump off an overpass. She has planned her suicide very well and everything is going perfectly until a stranger drives up and starts talking to her. Realising that she was actually there to commit suicide, the stranger insist upon taking her to her first street race. The adrenaline and the energy she experienced there made her start craving this rush. While chasing this rush she finds herself slowly falling hopelessly in love with this stranger.

The description of this book sounds hopelessly typical. It sounds like it's just a cheesy romance story. In many ways, that is exactly what it is. However the backstory of the characters, their dark pasts and their illegal jobs all come into play to make this an extremely memorable book. 

I would certainly recommend this book to anyone looking for a good old romantic story.

My Rating: 5/5
