Strap in, get ready to start your engines and see where it all began.
From an early age, Declan Reede’s only goal was to race in the ProV8 Championship Series. One thing he couldn’t anticipate was that a blistering kiss shared with his best friend, Alyssa Dawson, might derail his plans. 
While he knows things between them will never be the same, it’s impossible to predict just where the road will take them, or how rocky it might get.
Will he decide to fight for love or follow his dreams?


This book is an introduction novella to the "Declan Reede: The Untold Story Series" which is told in Declan's POV (which I love by the way). An easy read book that made me reminisce my younger years and to my young love with a smile on my face and a "Where is he now btw?". Reminiscing the past aside,
The 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." - T.S. Eliot

What 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 more. 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 Queensland 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 heartbreak.
This 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 works.

Great work! DECLINE you're ON!

Michelle Irwin has been many things in her life: a hobbit taking a precious item to a fiery mountain; a young child stepping through the back of a wardrobe into another land; the last human stranded not-quite-alone in space three million years in the future; a young girl willing to fight for the love of a vampire; and a time-travelling madman in a box. She achieved all of these feats and many more through her voracious reading habit. Eventually, so much reading had to have an effect and the cast of characters inside her mind took over and spilled out onto the page.
Michelle lives in sunny Queensland in the land down under with her surprisingly patient husband and ever-intriguing daughter, carving out precious moments of writing and reading time around her accounts-based day job. A lover of love and overcoming the odds, she primarily writes paranormal and fantasy romance.
