Publication date: 13th January 2014
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 4.5 stars
Synopsis: Merrick Drake.

Bartender, dirt bike racer, and far from settling down…until that one race, and that one girl that changed everything.

Amelia Driscoll.

Amelia took Merrick by surprise, bringing out emotions that he never knew existed. Amelia stole his heart…

Only to break it.

When fate puts Merrick and Amelia back together, it doesn’t come without a price- it comes with vengeance, determination, and putting his life on the line for the one he loves.

But, how much is Merrick willing to put on the line to have a future with no reason to hide? In the end, fate will decide...

Who's permanent.


This was my first book by this author and it was so awesome! I was excited to read it because the cover's hot and the synopsis sounded really interesting, even though it doesn't tell you the main plot line of the book! This book started out pretty slow, but at about 40% through it, it just exploded and the plot just went crazy! It was pretty epic! I did love the last half of this book better then the first half, because as I said, it did start pretty slow! After a certain point though, the plot sped up so much and my heart was in my mouth for most of it! I wanted the characters to have a happy ending so badly and I wasn't actually sure if they were going to get it! The plot was pretty, damn amazing! I wasn't expecting it and I was that hooked, I read this book in two sittings! I was desperate to find out what was going to happen next and how the plot was going to develop! There were also a few twists in the plot, which did have quite an impact and could have changed the whole outcome! The plot also dealt with some things that I actually wasn't expecting to play a part in it! It dealt with the mafia, which I wasn't expecting! I was quite surprised with where the plot went, but it was a good surprise! I haven't really read one like it before! The characters were amazing! Merrick was the main character and I just loved him! I normally don't like reading books written entirely from a male point of view, but I loved this one! I found Merrick really easy to connect with and he was such a genuine guy! I loved his determination and that he didn't back down as well! Merrick was also fiercely protective, but he wasn't as much of a bad boy as I was expecting! Trust me, he did have his moments though! Amelia was the love interest of Merrick and she was messed up in some deep crap! She was in deep and she wanted out! Her form of escape came in the a very hot, very lovable guy - Merrick! I loved Amelia! She was such a sweet person and I connected really well with her considering this book wasn't written from her point of view at all! She was the main centre of the plot in a sense and I was kinda surprised that this book wasn't partly written from her point of view though! As I said, I thought that maybe this book was going to be written from a dual point of view between Merrick and Amelia, but it was only written from Merrick's point of view! I think if it had been written from dual point of view it would have been a bit more, not interesting, but I would have been able to get more insight into Amelia's feelings and how she felt going up against part of the mafia! I can completely understand why this book is a standalone! The plot was resolved and all, but I found it hard to say goodbye to Merrick and Amelia! Their ending was absolutely beautiful though! I wouldn't have written it any other way! It was perfect! I will also definitely be checking out this author's other books! I have them all, so now all I have to do is read them lol! The cover for this book is hot! Like, really, really hot! I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it and it suits the book really well! Big thank you to Ashley for an ARC of Permanent Lines and to ACS Tours for having me on the Blog Tour!
