A meaningless tryst with a younger man. A one night stand on the anniversary of a tragedy. That’s all he was supposed to be.
I needed him to make me forget. He asked me to give him everything.
I’m 38. He’s 26. That’s the least of our problems.
The ruthless personal assistant of a top team on the grid, I’m as Type-A as they come. I make the world go ‘round for my athletes. Then I blow off steam dancing my ass off at London punk shows. There was no problem a fierce attitude and big, black boots couldn’t solve, until I met Brodie.
Icelandic driver, Brodie Lusk, skated through life for a broke F1 team with no chance of winning. Packed with potential—but holding no interest in fame, power, or money—he needed different motivation. He should have been simple, casual. Safe.
Sometimes, the safest options turn out to be the most dangerous.
Our passion could not be ignored.
My past would not stay buried.
All I wanted was one hot night with a sexy younger man.
I didn’t sign up for what came next.

“Fast & Wild” consumed me. It consumed all my emotions, took away my love for Dante (from “Fast & Hot” and replaced it with a melting fire in my heart for Brodie. He and Mila are like a tornado to each other and like a hurricane for my soul.
Words can be ghosts, too.
Since its release, I’ve read this book twice. It released on March 20th and we are now in May 24th. Why ? Because I just could not get enough and because I found this book my medicine in a time of long hours at the office with stress over excel files and statistics. Mila and Brodie were my escape and also my motivation. Together with them, Kat Ransom took my breath away and gave it back 10 times fresher!
I want your goddamn heart so intrecately fused with mine that they can’t even beat without each other. I. Want. Everything.
Mila is a workaholic. She lives through her work, her best friends are at work, her entire life revolves around F1 and F1 life. Her past stays right where it’s supposed to, but its scars are so deep she has no way of ever escaping them. Brodie gives her one night full of passion that’s supposed to be a onetime thing. But the kid (because he is too young for her) does not give up. They have a lot to figure out, they have obstacles they need to face and they have a past they need to own. But they are amazing!
Some things are ment to end before you’re ready, Princess. Sometimes good people don’t stay that way. Get the fuck out.
The romance is great, the passion between the main characters burs the pages in this book. But what I also loved was the way each character changes to meet the other’s expectations. Mila and Brodie couldn’t be more different. She comes from a crazy rich world and prefers the noise of the city. He wants a quiet life, earning enough to have a decent life. He drives with his heart for a man that gave him a future, not for the money, and he also loves the quiet life of the mountains. Both our main characters were so well thought and so well built and nothing is left at random.
I read that death ends a life, not a relationship. That love doesn’t have a finite capacity, it can continue expanding endlessly.
I cannot get enough of this book. I’ve read it twice now and I am sure I will read it again soon. It’s one of the very few books that made me miss the characters a couple of days after finishing it and it’s one of the very few books that gave me the same feelings after rereading it. What can I say?! I’m addicted! Thank Kat Ransom, I bow my head to you!
You don’t pick who you fall in love with, and you don’t just stop loving them becasue it gets hard or inconvenient.
Cover review: I love it! I imagine Brodie as Charles LeClerc … (daydreaming now)
Favorite quote: I will pass on that, as I’ve quoted many in my review already. I cannot choose one quote that I like more than the rest! I love this book too much.
