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?


Start Declan Reede's story today with the FREE prequel novella:




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!


Book 1 in the Declan Reede: the Untold Story Series

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? 






Nothing prepared me from what happened in this book. I thought I could put the pieces together since well,I read the introduction novella, but f*ck no! The story keeps going better and better that it took me several pauses just to savour each moment and feel all the roller coaster of emotions it gave me. 
So anyway, this story picks up four years after Declan chose his race career over his first love and family. I could say the author gave Declan's character a realistic appeal. The hunger for fame and that feeling of being alive! The living of his DREAM!!! WOW!!! but despite all that, there's still that lacking part of himself, the one that haunts his every dream. That one particular reason of his "crashes and DNF's".
Entered 'Fate' when he's about to sort his self out. And that's where the every twists and turns of the story starts. It also started the moment when I really wanted to enter into the book and maybe slap some sense to Declan but at the same time hug him so tight because you know, I just felt him. His every emotion triggers something deep within me. And of course, I wanted to high five Alyssa...such a strong heroine.

And to top of it all...arghhhhhhh...that revelation!!! What the hell???? It broke my heart into pieces....

I really wanted to crawl into this author's mind so at least I can be prepared for what will happen next. The book is just fantastic that it really made me hate my work coz it messes with my reading schedule. Michelle Irwin, you really have done great! I cannot wait for the next book.
