Reminiscing the past asideThe story introduces us with Declan and Alyssa Two friends who practically grew up together The friendship turned to dating after that kiss they shared one afternoon in their favorite spot in the park They may be best of friends and practically dating at that but both have different plans and dreams for the future which results to the roller coaster ride of their relationship This made it difficult which left Dylan to decide will it be his career or the love they both shared?What we call the beginning is often the end And to make an end is to make a beginning The end is where we start from TS EliotWhat a fantastic introduction The words and story line were written incredibly As I said it was and easy read but an easy read that will keep you hooked right from the start and will keep you wanting for What I love about it the most is that the author have written the story without sugar coating it From when the time Alyssa's family moved to ueensland from South Wales to the day of their first day of school where Declan picked her for their team which started their friendship and their each other's firsts Not just first love but also first heartbreakThis story is a must read To think that it is my first Michelle Irwin book I know I will be looking forward to her other worksGreat work DECLINE you're ONecopy provided by the author in exchange of an honest review I am really of two minds about this preuel I am hooked into Declan's story and looking forward to where he is going next but I think the female lead Alyssa is just a flat out teenaged self absorbed bitch I get that she has no interest in racing and that is ok but her lack of respect for something that is obviously so important to the boy she is supposedly in love with makes me dislike her I hate that If a man tried to control me or pooh poohed something I was passionate about the way she does to Declan he would be uickly shown the door The writing in this book is good and the storytelling is compelling I am looking forward to the next book to see what happens now Declan is moving forward in his racing career I am hoping that Alyssa is completely out of the picture and Declan moves on or alternatively she does some serious growing up and stops being a demanding controlling narcissistic bitchARC provided by Netgalley I was really looking forward to reading this series Lately I’ve reading and sports romances and loving it They have so much excitement and always give me an adrenaline rush reading the scenesSo since I found the whole series free on I was really excited to startThis book is listed as a spin off but after reading it o can’t imagine starting the series without it It has a background story that I find really necessary for understanding Declan his decision and their relationship The title really agrees with the story since Declan has to make a decision in the endAbout the characters I connected with Declan and his ambition to race professionally And although I really liked how Alyssa was strong had a good head and always said her mind she was really judgmental towards Declan’s dream I understand she didn’t know anything about the sport or liked it much but she should at least be supportive for him since she loves him so much It was annoying seeing her try to change his mind even though I believe he wouldn’t do the same to herAnyway I really enjoyed the drama behind it all and the cliffhanger left me wanting to continue the series I know they have a long road ahead and I can’t wait to see what’ll happen
