This was an action-packed, second-chance debut romance by Amy Barnett, and it was definitely a wild ride.

Amy is a beautiful writer she provided such a cinematic experience that really painted the perfect picture of each scene. She mentioned she tried to write a movie script in the past and I can see why... this played out exactly how I imagine a blockbuster movie would.

I loved Adam! He is fiercely loyal, crazy reckless, protective and kind and when he and Mercedes are together they are a force to be reckoned with. I loved the dynamic between them and the others in the 'Big Five' Dan, Carlos, and Paul they are all so unique with their own interesting backstories.

The only thing that let this down for me is the fact it's in 3rd person (which I didn't know going into it). Unfortunately, 3rd person makes it so hard for me to feel connected with the characters individually. This is the major reason for my lower rating so if you do enjoy reading 3rd person then give this a go.

If you are after a tropical setting, fast-paced plot, even faster cars, plenty of drama and some slow-burn romance then check this out.
