―Colleen Hoover, #1 New York Times bestselling author on 44 Chapters about 4 Men
"SPEED, as with all of BB's work, takes us on a journey at the cusp of womanhood. BB lets us peer under the band-aid of adolescence, self-absorbed, self-destructive, and oftentimes startlingly selfless. We watch the wound bleed in fascination until she tears it off completely and reveals the transformation, scars, dents, (piercings) and plenty of wizened girl power underneath."―Mara White, HuffPost and NY Daily News

Unfortunately, I just now finally got the chance to read this book, even though I have been so ready for it ever since I finished book 1, Skin! But it was also amazing to be able to read this and then immediately dive into book 3, Star, and read them back to back! Let me tell you, I was on a BB high for days!! This picks up BB’s journey after Knight has left to go into the marines and things have ended between them badly. BB is 16 now and finally has her license and a car...which leads to her meeting the sexy as sin mechanic and speed demon, Harley James! Total flirt, adorable, older, and just enough of a dangerous vibe to make BB know she has to have him! I’ll tell you this...I immediately adored Harley and was all for him and BB being together...until things changed and you realize there’s more to some people than meets the eye. I was right there with BB emotionally, torn between what was right and wrong, how to deal with her feelings for Knight that wouldn’t go away even tho she was terrified of him, how to feel about falling in love again with Harley, and a million other things she had to endure and deal with emotionally. I won’t spoil anything, but I will say that I did not see it coming the way things ended!! As always, BB is a total bada** and I can’t ever get enough of her! Through all the good and bad, the laughs and tears, the joy and pain, I felt every emotion and was invested completely! There’s soooo much more I could say but I won’t....just go read these books!!!! BB Easton is a f***ing genius and I bow to her!!!
"I heard a loud clang as Harley pulled the garage’s sliding metal door closed and secured it with a padlock. He looked at me and smiled. The sunlight had turned orange and was coming in sideways, illuminating all the tiny specks of pollen and dandelion fuzz floating in the air between us."
I also love all of the humor that the author infuses into her writing. One of my favorite lines from this book is:
"I wasn’t dating a mechanic. I was dating m*therf^<&ing Batman."
I adored reading Speed and reading about BB and Harley, but I will say that I am still Team Knight! One thing that I really loved was that there were so many references and things that I remember from when I was that age. I think the author and I might be the same age. This was like a blast from the past. I love how relatable it all was too.
Speed was fantastic. I highly recommend this series. If you haven't read these books yet, start at the beginning with 44 Chapters About 4 Men, then read Skin, and then Speed. I am so excited to start Star next! I have been reading these on Kindle and also listening to the whispersync audible, but I will most definitely be adding all of these paperbacks to my home collection.
Audible: I added the whispersync audible narration to this kindle book. I really liked the narrators straight narration, her BB voice and her female voices, but the male voices didn't really do it for me. Overall, the audible was still really good and worth a listen.

What an utterly brilliant, wild and emotionally charged ride I've just been on.
Because this book is based on actual events in BBs life (which parts are exaggerated is anyone's guess, I'd like to think it's all true.) makes it all the more terrifying to think of the danger this young girl finds herself in. It shocked the hell out of me at times but also made me laugh at the little quips in the book.
I swear this story played like a movie in my head as I read it.
BBs skinhead Psychotic lover Knight has left her to join the marines hoping to direct his anger issues in the right way.
This has left BB a mess and spiralling into a deeper darker place than before. To me Knight was the only one who realised or cared that this girl had demons of her own. ( Which is one of the reasons I love him )
My heart kind of broke for her because of this. I admit I was scared for her at times. Although at times she showed real strength and courage for such a young age.
Quite quickly BB meets Harley, who is every young girls wet dream a gorgeous tattooed bad boy who drives a cool car.
Not only that but he pays attention to her. BB can't believe her luck.
They have some wild moments that's for sure.
I absolutely loved this story, I know this is Harleys book but honestly the guy can kiss my A$$. I'm still Team Knight and always will be.
I did love Harleys Redneck Brother Dave that guy cracked me up. I'd love a little spin off about him.
If you've never read these books, you really should because they are amazing. I might have a little girl crush on BB too.💗
This journey through BB's life and men is unbelievable fascinating.
This book is about the second man from BB's journal, Harley.
But in reality most of this book is her attempt to forget or escape her feelings for Knight and finding herself.
I didn't like Harley. He has from the beginning an eerie "aura".
He doesn't really care about anything but himself, but BB needs a lot of time to figure it out.
He makes her laugh and forget for a little while, but his drug fogged brain and his choice of earning money puts BB in danger, what he seems not to care about.
But Knight, OMG! I love this psycho as!h!le.
He is unpredictable and she doesn't know 90% of the time what his psychotic mind will do the next second, but he is so damn romantic (in his own way!) without trying and he writes the best love letters ever.
This book is not a standalone. You've to read Skin to understand the whole story.
For all of you who needs a warning: this book is scorching hot
There were times I needed to stop reading so I could process it.
That is something that didn’t happen to me before not like this!
My heart just really brokenat times it was so hard!
I think it’s because we “know” BB and that’s why I feel so much while reading this one! I didn’t keep it a secret that I was rooting for Knight even though yes he is not the bestest person, but we got to see the otherside! I'm hoping he is still somewhere out there with a wife and kids and truly happy!
Harley is someone you instantly like, but for me when Knight was in the picture I forgot about him!
I hate cheating with a passion, but at the end of this one I could find peace with this one. The ones who've read it will know why.
I'm just so looking forward to Suit so I can move on from Knight and read that BB finally found her luck and happiness!!
This one will go in my favorites of 2019 because I felt so much with this book, that no other book has managed so far! So much sadness, heart breaking, swooning and even a few happiness moments!
