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?

my thoughts

Kim Karr gives the readers what they want in SET THE PACE! This sexy adrenaline rush had me hooked from start to finish leaving me breathless and full of intrigue. Book one in The Detroit Love Duet was full of twists and turns with a mix of sexy and sweet. Karr gives us another suspenseful and mysterious romance with tons and tons of feels. Jasper Storm and Charlotte Lane were great lead characters. Each page was coated in sexual tension and white-hot passion that had me blushing and swooning all over the damn place!

After reading the prologue I knew I was in for a treat. The author gets your blood pumping right away. But it doesn’t stop there. Each chapter brings more angst and more mystery and even more suspense. I knew I wasn’t going to be able to put this baby down. I was hooked until the last page was turned.

A tragedy took away the people he loved. He is trying his best to make something good out of it. When Jasper’s childhood best friend shows up in the city that she abandoned, he has questions. Charlotte is all grown up now and she has questions of her own. Tempers and lust run high when these two are reunited. Hate turns into lust, which grows into something deeper. Something they always had but never got the chance to experience before everything went to hell. Throw murder into the mix, and you got yourself a fantastic and sexy romantic suspense.

I’m so excited for more Jasper and Charlotte! I’m also excited for more Will, Jake, and Drew. There is a lot going on with this crew and I can’t wait to discover more.
