GP2 race car driver Dustin Coates has been made irrelevant…
For the past year, Dustin helped his best friend, Raine Wilkins. It was a good diversion from his twisted life. Now she’s settling down with his brother, and without the distraction from his own toxic relationship, Dustin is rapidly spiralling out of control.
Everyone warned him to leave his girlfriend, Elora, yet they knew nothing about the baby…
It’s up to Dustin to protect the innocent life hanging in the balance, and to do that he must endure Elora’s twisted games of manipulation and violence. However, when she does the unthinkable, Dustin finally snaps. Leaving her, the light-hearted jokester people have come to love is replaced with a grief-stricken man intent on one thing—earning a Formula One contract.
Everything changes when Tazia Nixon moves in next door…
Dustin clings to the Latin beauty who soothes his aching heart and helps him forget. But beneath her eternal optimism is a distressing past she refuses to share. Dustin must decide if he can risk his fragile heart a second time. She might ease his pain, but she could also break him like no one else.
Will Dustin be able to overlook the deceit to find his forever with Tazia, or will he see nothing more than a Twisted Mind?
I couldn’t wait to starting reading this book after finishing the first book and I wasn’t disappointed. Mia Hoddell has a way of writing fantastic characters who get through some terrible situations with true love and good friends.
Dustin doesn’t have to protect his friend Raine anymore so now it’s time to start looking after himself which means getting as far away from Elora as possible problem is he has to protect his unborn child until he finds out what she really did. Now he’s struggling with grief and shuts everyone out apart from when he’s racing until Tazia. Taz helps him see a future again and heal his broken heart but she’s hiding a past and he has to know what it is before giving her his heart. Will Tazia be the one to help him start living again or will she break him forever?
Tazia is ready to start her life over even if she’s doing it with a broken leg, she’s still trying to come to terms with everything that’s happened and the guilt that she still carries around. Tazia’s first meeting with Dustin does not go well but the more she gets to know him she can see his pain and wants to do nothing more than to take it away after hearing what happened. After hearing what Dustin’s been through at the hands of his ex she finds herself stuck on whether to tell him her secret or not. She knows Dustin won’t move forward with their relationship until she opens up but she’s scared of what he’ll think of her once he knows. Will her secret pull them together or push them apart?
