I couldn’t have both.When an unexpected surprise shows up on my doorstep in the form of a baby, there’s only one woman I trust enough to help me. Lena Stanley, the one I left behind. But being in close proximity to her reminds me of what we used to have, and what I still want. Her.

Grip is Lacey Black’s newest standalone and it’s part of K. Bromberg’s Driven World. I was so excited when I found out she was going to be part of this world. For her. I actually haven’t read the Driven series but I have always wanted to. Too many books, so little time!
Three years. Three years ago Lena watched the love of her life walk away. Toward his dreams. She was so happy for him. It was everything he ever wanted but she couldn’t go with him. So she stayed in Missouri while he went to LA. And now, she was off to LA to help him. She didn’t know what she was walking into but she knew in her heart that she had to go. She thought that maybe this is what she needed to move on. The last thing she expected when she got to his house was a baby. A newborn. A three week old boy named Oliver.
Mack hated walking away from her three years ago. And when suddenly he was a father, she was the only one he could trust to help him. He needed her. When he saw her again he knew he also wanted her. He always has but those thoughts were dormant since he couldn’t do anything about it. She didn’t want this life. He couldn’t do this on his own, taking care of a baby. They decide on six weeks. She would stay for six weeks. He knew from that moment that it wouldn’t be enough.
Mack and Lena’s relationship is complicated and beautiful at the same time. I felt their connection from start to finish. They are so at ease with other and nervous too. They don’t want to complicate things even more but they also want to give in. It’s so much. The traveling together. The taking care of a baby together. Laughing, learning, and the races! So exciting. Lena loves the excitement of the races. It’s fun when it’s six weeks but can it be forever?
Aw!! I absolutely LOVED this story!! The slow burn. The races. Oliver. I seriously cried a dozen times!! I laughed. Hard. I want to slap a few people. It was awesome. Oliver is not just in the background. He is Mack’s world. It makes Mack even hotter! Damn…him in a fire suit on halfway? 🔥🔥. Then there is Lena, she is so sweet, strong, and sexy. I love that they just get each other.
P.S. I want more Fish!! ♥️
“I trust you.” The corner of my mouth turns upward.
“Good. Now, let’s get you in your race car so Oliver can witness his first big Indy race.” I glance down and find the baby sound asleep. Mack snorts. “He’s thrilled, I can tell.”
“Lena!” Fish bellows from the open door of the limo. “Damn, girl. You look positively edible. Have you finally realized you’re with the wrong man yet?” Fish asks, winking and smiling as his best friend growls behind me.
I grip my steering wheel, my hands more at home there than anywhere else. Well, maybe a second to Lena’s body, but a damn close one. This is my element, my drive.
Grip is Lacey Black’s newest addition to the Driven World. Grip is a sexy, fun and addicting second chance romance. I love a good second chance romance and Lacey did a perfect job! Mack and Lena were in love and had their whole lives ahead of them. Together. Until Mack gets a call from Colton Donovan and the chance at his dream. But Lena can’t go with her and leave her life. Mack has to follow his dream alone. Three years later and Mack needs someone he trusts to help him. Lena gets a call from Mack for help. She hasn’t spoken to him in years, but she can’t help but go to LA to help him with whatever he needs. Turns out he has a baby and doesn’t know what to do. Lena agrees to help, but only temporarily. Mack can’t believe how good she looks. He never stopped thinking about her but he has to keep his hands to himself. If he touches her he’ll never be able to let her go. There’s nothing sexier than watching Lena with his son. Mack still has a job to do. He needs to race and now his son, Oliver, and Lena are with him. He never thought it would mean this much to have them with him.
