Publisher's Summary

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. Now that he's all grown up, the broken city of Detroit hails him as its 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.

Contains mature themes.

    "Motor City Love"

    The book has everything hope, mystery, murder, romance, hot sex, speed & a whopping cliffhanger. I am so disappointed that book 2 is not yet available on Audible but I will be the first to pre order when the time comes. this was the first book I read by this author and I'm impressed with the depth of a book I thought would only be about the sex & love. As usual Sebastian York kills it as Jasper Storm. CJ was good but not my fav lady narrator.
    hope you enjoy the book as much as I did#

    "Cliffhanger!!!"
    Would you listen to Set the Pace again? Why?

    Yes...great story


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Set the Pace?

    When Jake and Charlotte get together as a couple.


    Have you listened to any of CJ Bloom and Sebastian York ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes - As usual Sebastian York hits it out of the ballpark. CJ's voice is very grating on the nerves when she tries to do annoyed.....Uh!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    As they remember childhood memories and how Jasper always took care of her.


    Any additional comments?

    ABSOLUTELY HATE CLIFFHANGERS LIKE THIS WHEN THE NEXT BOOK HAS NOT BEEN RELEASED!!!! READ THIS AUTHORS, IT IS ABOUT ENJOYMENT NOT FRUSTRATION!!!

    "So entertaining to listen to."

    I wanted to reread Set the Pace before the next book comes out. I decided to get the audio book . I am so glad I did. The voices of Jasper and Charlie were perfect. I really enjoyed listening to it. Love this book and loved the audio version as well. I hope the same people narrate the next book.

    "Sebastian rocks Jasper but CJs a forget me not!"

    Unfortunately I found the female delivery long breathy paragraphs one dimensionally provided the same emotions regardless of the circumstances happening, the characterization/delivery was flat with redundant inflections. The book is going on well but it is a cliffhanger so get ready to hang.

    A mother, wife, sister and good friend who enjoys the simple things in life. Country music is my preference and the beach is my escape (other then my books). LOL!

    "Love it."

    Ok, so I hate cliffhangers so I waited till book 2 was released. But, this story has everything; sexy time, action, adventure and suspense. I had to listen to it all in 1 day. Great narrators and fabulous writing. Well worth the credit or money.

    "Cliffhanger"

    Pretty good book but there is a sequel that has not been published yet. I'm really tired of having to buy 2 or 3 books to get a story that could be just 1 long book. Also would like to be notified before I purchase the book that you have to buy additional books to get the entire story.

    I felt the the characters came across as very immature. I wanted to like the story, but couldn't get into it.

    Any additional comments?

    The story is great. It is well written and keeps you interested and drawn in waiting, waiting, and waiting... GAAAHAAAA!! Then it ends. I hate this kind of book. Would rather the books in a series be about different angles or people as each book creates more color to finish the complete painting of the story. This is just mean..... Now I need to see if book 2 is written. Then the decision .... to buy and encourage this kind of torture, or just let it go.
