Every city needs a hero, but Detroit’s white knight just might be a villain.
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. All grown up, the broken city of Detroit hails him their 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.
Jasper has many reasons to hate Charlotte and keep his distance, but she’s infiltrating his every thought and he can’t stay away. Back in town with an agenda of her own, she should push him aside. Make him turn around. Walk away herself. Yet she can't.
With the past lurking between them, they proceed with caution. That is until one sex-filled night leads to murder. When Detroit’s biggest ally suddenly becomes suspect number one, will Charlotte—the girl Jasper once kept safe—be the one to save him?

I was needing this kind of book. The type of book that sends thrills through my spine and keeps me up all night long. The kind of story that makes me addicted to from the beginning. The kind of book that when I’m at work, I’m craving my next fix and I can’t wait to sneak into the bathroom to read it alone because I can’t stop even though I have a job to do and my boss is so needy and he is screaming at me to take care of things. Lol. Well that is how I felt about “Set the Pace”. That is how Kim makes me feel with about ALL of her books.
So this is a friends-to-lovers story. Jasper and Charlotte met when they were kids, they were best friends, both had a rough childhood and Jasper always took care of her…both depended on each other. After a fateful event, they were forced to be apart. Jasper lost his dad and when he most needed Charlotte, she wasn’t there with him. *tears* He grew up with anger and trying to survive all the bad stuff surrounding him.
Charlotte never wanted to leave Jasper behind, but she had to run away with her dad. After that, she grew up alone, always longing for her best friend. Now, she came back to the town she grew up in. She wants to mend things between Jasper…she wants her best friend back, but to have him back she has to prove that her dad was not guilty.
If you’re looking for the perfect balance between romance, mystery, a little drama, funny moments, angst, suspense and very sweets and sexy moments that will leave you craving for more…then THIS is your book. “Set the Pace” was an exciting ride and as I said above, I could hardly put it down. Until the last page that left me like :O !!!! I can’t wait to read “Turn it Up”!!!!
