Book Description

I’m the girl who’s always picking up the pieces of other people’s mistakes.
Until tonight.
I accidentally cause one false start, and now I’m being pulled into a guy’s car—who everyone only knows as Falcon—before an illegal street race.
He may not want anyone to truly know who he is, but he’s met his match.
Game on, Falcon.
People know I run these races.
They know not to mess with me, or my car.
When the identity of the girl who causes a false start is revealed, I have to make an example of her.
Letting her see who I am was never the plan.
Neither was running into her the next day as my brother’s new assistant.
She said she wanted nothing to do with me, but when I yank her into a janitor’s closet, making sure she keeps my secret is the last thing on my mind.
She may want more than my secrets, but my racing may be the last thing I try to hide.
For a sneak peek inside AUSTIN, check out this exclusive excerpt on Book + Main!

My Review…

A Sexton Brothers Novel

Oh my! What a great start to a new series!

Austin is a fantastic collaboration between these two authors! It’s a fast paced (yes I am totally using the racing theme!) swoony read that I could not put down.

It’s the story of Austin Sexton, aka Falcon on the street racing scene and Jalynn, aka Pyle, which kinda threw me because even though she didn’t know what the name meant at first, I did and I found it hard to keep in the story every time Austin called her that.  But that is just such a small distraction.

Jalynn is the younger sister, but she is also the responsible one.  Not by choice, but by circumstance.  I enjoyed how Austin made her understand just how much she was protected growing up.  She and Austin share a similar background and that’s what brings them closer together. She is loyal, fierce and independent.  She is no shrinking violet!

Austin is everything you could ask for in a swoony alpha hero.  He is protective, he is courageous and oh what a silver tongued devil! Oh so swoony and he is able to be true to himself around Jalynn, which is something he didn’t know he needed until he met her.

The secondary characters bring a richness and the bit of mystery needed to keep you guessing.  I cannot wait to read the next book in this series! You won’t either!  Well done ladies! Well done!
