Speed (44 Chapters Spin-Off #2) by B.B. Easton
Because BB Easton had so much fun writing her bestselling, award-winning, gut-busting, panty-melting memoir, 44 CHAPTERS ABOUT 4 MEN, she decided to give each of her four men his own steamy standalone! SPEED is the second book in the 44 Chapters spin-off series—a gritty, taboo love triangle overflowing with dark humor and tangible teen angst. It is based on a true story.
After her possessive, psychopathic, rage-fueled ex, Knight, joins the Marines, sixteen-year-old BB is left trying, and failing, to pick up the pieces of her shattered heart. It isn't until she meets Harley James—an easy-going, tattooed mechanic with a face as angelic as his habits are sinful—that she learns how to live again. How to laugh again. But will she learn to love again?
Over Knight’s dead body.
*Due to excessive profanity, violence, graphic sexual content, and themes of juvenile drug use and delinquency, this book is not intended for—and should probably be completely hidden from—anyone under the age of eighteen.
Once again I was lost in BB's life, her storytelling, and her brain. BB has a solid storytelling style that is absolutely engrossing (totally different than gross) and I always get lost for the day when reading her books.
Initially in 44 Chapters, Harley wasn't my favorite of the boyfriends. Then I started reading Speed and I was like "wait, wait, wait. HARLEY IS MY FAVE." And then he wasn't, again.
While Harley is traumatizing in a whole different way than Knight (from Skin), this story certainly still maintained the pace of BB's crazy teenage life. Don't worry, Skeletor makes his appearances in Harley's story (much to my DELIGHT), this book had me swinging back and forth on who was the better fit for BB... and I will stop there to avoid spoilers.
Regardless of the fictional/non-fictional characters, details, timelines, whatever. I don't really care either way. BB grasps my attention either way with the wild "tales" or "facts" and keep me always entertained.
I'm back to solid Team Ken. (That's in case Ken is reading this.). But I really am.
