By: Tess Oliver
Released: 5th November 2013
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.

This is part of a series but can be read as a stand alone novel.
Clutch co-owns a car parts business with his best mate Jason.  They have become pretty successful over the past three years.  Clutch finds out that Jason has been hiding something from him, his little sister Taylor is back in town completing her final year in high school.
Taylor was sent away by her parents to live with an Aunt after stealing Clutch's car and pretty much writing it off in an accident.  She has had a crush on Clutch for years and was obsessed with him.  To him she was the annoying little sister of his best mate.
Taylor has now returned for her final year in high school but there is one condition her parents have imposed on her - stay away from James Mason (Clutch).  It is inevitable that their paths will eventually cross and when they do Clutch is completely drawn to Taylor.  The little girl has grown up into a beautiful young woman.  She wants him and he wants her so it should be simple right?
She doesn't want to her family to know she wants to be with him and risk being sent back to live with her aunt. Her brother is threatening to leave the business he has with Clutch if she pursues anything with him.
Will she finally stand up to her overbearing parents and follow her heart or will she do what she thinks is best and walk away?
This was a quick read and I really enjoyed the storyline.

She came around the corner, unexpectedly and like a hurricane of stars. My mind went completely blank. I hung up and stuck the phone in my pocket.
Taylor’s long lashes curtained her smooth cheeks as she dropped her gaze.

The adrenaline rush left behind from getting my hands on a sixty-five Shelby morphed into an explosion of every emotion I’d ever felt. I lunged forward and grabbed her hand. She gasped as I dragged her around the back of the building. I pressed her up against the bricks and stared down at her.
