Product description

Product Description

Hold on tight, stick to the racing line, and watch for the corners.

Four years after making the decision to leave his home town behind, all of Declan Reede's dreams have come true. Unapologetically foul-mouthed, driven, and well known for his off-track antics, his success seems unstoppable. At least until Queensland Raceway and a chance sighting of the girl who once held his heart. Now, getting around the track seems an impossible battle as he struggles to return to his previous form. With his career racing downhill faster than his V8 on Mount Panorama, there's more than just his reputation on the line.

What will it take to put the brakes on his decline?

**Due to strong language and sexual content not intended for anyone under the age of 18**

After reading (& loving Decide) I went into this book on edge, intrigued, & in anticipation... why you ask?? I was wondering what would happen between Decide & Decline, especially with the cliffhanger Michelle left us in. 'Decline' is book 1 in "Declan Reede: The Untold Story" but I highly advise you read 'Decide' first, it's based 4 years prior & gives you a more indepth background story into the lives of Declan & Alyssa.

Declan is on his second year on the V8 curcuit, his dreams are fulfilled, but a chance sighting of Alyssa, the girl in his past, setting emotions off within Declan starting his decline in his job. Another on-track accident, gets Declan sent to London & who do you think is allocated the seat next to him???

There was so many twists & turns within this story, Declan was living life in the fast lane, but things or events seem to catch up to you when you least expect, Declan's life is no different. I found Declan to be slightly all over the place, emotionally he didn't seem to be able to handle things or emotions well, his favourite word was f#$*, but I can understand his use of the word all throughout the book. There were situations within that required the word, believe me.

I started reading 'Decline' late last night, I was 77% in, it was 5am, I had tears running down my face & called it quites for the night. Those scenes, the RAW emotions just set me off, read it & you'll understand. I picked it up today & finished the first (well second) part of Declan's story, with a few more tears & a MAJOR cliffhanger at the end. I kept trying to turn the page to see if there was more..... I loved every second of this book & can't wait for the next book in "Declan Reede: The Untold Story"!!

I was given an ARC of this story for an honest review.
Declan Reede… What can I say about this character? Where do I even being to start without giving too much of the awesome away?

Declan makes his dream, his reality. He becomes the youngest champion of the ProV8 Tour.
He has the world at his fingertips. A fast car, to thrust around a track. Sponsors. Celebrity status. Women, lots of women, throwing themselves at him… A young rev heads desire, his lotto. Everything in his life is just how he wanted it; hoped it would be. That is until Queensland Raceway.
Someone changes the course of his life in just one blink of an eye. Now his world begins to crash down around him. He can’t sleep, he can’t focus. Each podium start, ends in a twisted metal wreck in 6 consecutive races resulting in a DNF. He’s about to lose everything he ever wanted. His marching orders are only a matter of days away and it’s all because of Queensland Raceway.

Insert Alyssa, his best friend for all his life and his first love. The one he walked away from so selfishly to ensure his dream came true. Sydney, Australia is where his life is meant to be lived, not back in his home town. He never looks back not even for Alyssa. She was not part of his future, she hated race cars after all. She is just now his past. That is until she turns up at Queensland race way and Declan sees her again for the very first time in 4 years…

This is when his life spirals out of control and when Alyssa again invades all his thoughts. This is when he begins losing control of his race car, his dream and his life. Declan has to get himself together and a trip to London at the request of his racing team, is something he cannot say no to, if he wants to continue living the life he had wanted so bad.

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this book as I wasn't majorly drawn to Declan or Alyssa during 'Decide'.

Decline picks up four years after Decide finishes. For Declan Reede life should be bliss... all of his dreams have come true and he's made it as a Pro V8 racer, even managing to win the title of youngest Pro V8 Champion but instead finds his hopes and dreams slipping out of his fingers. Suffering from anxiety and insomnia, Declan has 'crashed out' of all of his last 5 races resulting in DNF's (did not finish).

The story starts with Declan in the seat of a V8 car about to begin a race and from the off the reader is pulled into the nightmares Declan is experiencing... his confidence in finishing the race is pretty much none existent let alone winning it:

' Realistically, I should have been buzzing with confidence, like I had been the last time I'd lined up for this race, but I wasn't. Instead, a constant loop of all the reasons I was going to fail ran through my mind, diminishing my purpose and causing my hands to shake.'

After crashing out yet again, Declan is ordered by his boss to take a vacation and sort his head out. This leads to a chance meeting on a plane with the one person he has been avoiding for the last four years, the reason his head is so messed up, the girl he couldn't keep but also has never been able to fully let go of; Alyssa Dawson.

Spending time with Alyssa, proves to Declan that he's still in love with her and that he never should have let her go but Alyssa has been keeping some earth shattering secrets and when Declan finds out, it turns his entire world upside down.

The book is told from Declan's POV throughout which I really enjoyed (I love getting inside a male characters head).
