After the cover reveal and reading the blurb I was SUPER excited for this release. This is a new to me author and I had such high hopes, however, I feel like this one fell short for me, unfortunately.
I think this had all the right ingredients but there was just too much happening for me to get my head around. Obviously, I haven't read another work by R.E so didn't know the dynamic with all of Becketts' 'dads' etc, which left me quite confused at the start as there are just SO many names to remember and figure out. Plus all the other clubs and secondary characters it was a bit overwhelming.
In saying that I really admired Beckett, she is such a badass and strong FMC who takes no shit, and I thought R.E wrote her really well. I absolutely adored Jett, I think he was the sweetest and most lovable character, who mostly just followed becket around like a love-sick puppy and it was so endearing! Maddox on the other hand was the total opposite, and a hard cookie to crack. I loved the balance between the two though and loved how they interacted with becket both individually and together. Some of those scenes together were... 'chef kiss'.
I am rating this a 4/5 as I don't want to blame the author for me not understanding the characters and some of the backstory, I think had I read the Watch Me Burn Series I would have enjoyed this one a lot more.
I am still intrigued to see where this series goes, and how some of the loose ends will be tied up. If you are after racing, steam, gangs, and violence then this is for you!
