Arc Review Set The Pace by Kim Karr

Friday, February 19, 2016

Every city needs a hero, but Detroit’s white knight just might be a villain. 

A rough childhood branded Jasper Storm trouble. A bad boy. Not worth a damn. His love of cars was the only thing that could battle his delinquency. With the need for speed in his blood, he overcame his wayward ways. Mostly. All grown up, the broken city of Detroit hails him their shining star. And the man behind a new cutting-edge automobile is ready to turn this bankrupt town around.

Everything he does in life is fast. He talks fast, f*cks fast, and drives fast. But when one reckless turn brings him face-to-face with the childhood he has tried very hard to forget, he finds himself on the edge of wondering if he shouldn’t slow down.

Charlotte Lane was the tomboy who lived next door. She was his best friend. He was her protector. Then tragedy struck and she disappeared, forever—or so he thought.

Jasper has many reasons to hate Charlotte and keep his distance, but she’s infiltrating his every thought and he can’t stay away. Back in town with an agenda of her own, she should push him aside. Make him turn around. Walk away herself. Yet she can't.

With the past lurking between them, they proceed with caution. That is until one sex-filled night leads to murder. When Detroit’s biggest ally suddenly becomes suspect number one, will Charlotte—the girl Jasper once kept safe—be the one to save him?

What a brilliant story! I loved Set The Pace. This book is so much more than just a romance. It had everything I needed and more. There is mystery, suspense and twists that will keep your interest. I was hooked from the first page, and honestly I didn't expect to like it so much!!


The plot was very intriguing, and the mystery kept me guessing. The romance developed slowly but it was perfect for the story. Both Jasper and Charlotte have to deal with their past, since they were friends before, now they they’ve reconnected they have to work on developing their relationship again.

“Is this what they call friends to lovers?” I laugh. “I’m not entirely sure , but if I had to guess I’d say yes.”

Jasper is a perfect character to swoon over and Charlotte is so down to earth, they make an amazing couple. They have a strong bond and you can feel it throughout the story. Also the fact that the reader is given dual POV’s, makes the story that much more enjoyable, because you can see and learn things about both characters.


This is the best book I have read from Kim Karr! She has done an amazing job with this book. The story was a little slow in some parts in my opinion, but the mystery is perfect!!The ending is cliffhanger and I really need the next book now to see what will happen!!If you are looking for a romance with mystery this is the perfect read for you!!
