Blog Tour - Driving Layne by Renea Porter

 Title: Driving Layne
Series: Unspoken Truth #1
Author: Renea Porter
Release Date: February 14, 2014

"They say, the truth will set you free. My truth is killing me."

Amber is starting over in a new state where no one knows her. New roommate, new college and most importantly new freedoms.

Away from home for the first time, Amber isn’t above using a guy for one night and leaving it at that. She doesn't want to get tied down with one person. She just wants to experience the college life and take advantage of being on her own. So, when Amber’s new BFF Renee invites her to an underground drag racing competition, Amber sets her sights on driver/playboy Layne… and their attraction is mutual.

With his good looks and boyish charm, Layne is popular with the ladies on campus, but Amber thinks one night with him is all she needs to get him out of her system. Little does Amber know that Layne sees things differently, and after their hookup he wants something more. Will Amber open up and let Layne in, or will she run away?

Will the unspoken truth be too much for either of them to handle?


Reading this book you will need a box of tissues. It had me in tears, so much so that I had to stop in the middle of reading. It was very touching. I didn’t have to try to be in Layne's shoes to FEEL because I was or have been in the situation he was in, quite a few times. I won’t say what it is because that would spoil the story.
This type of book I generally try to stay away from because it gets to me on a deep level. It involves heartache but I won’t say as to why that is or I will give too much away. There’s also a feeling of adrenaline pumping through your veins since Layne is a race car driver. Once I got into this book it had me really emotional, there was just so much going on.
I loved Layne so much. A bad boy who had a line of women for him to take his pick from. But when he met Amber everything changed, he became who I wanted or expected him to be. He fell in love with Amber at first sight.
Amber was very independent and just wants to live a normal if nothing major is changing. And she has a secret to keep...the reason why she doesn’t get involved in a relationship. 
Avoiding Layne was kind of a hard thing to do since Layne was very persistent. You’ll have to read this to find out the rest of their emotion journey. 
I enjoyed reading this book and I'm looking forward to reading book two in the series.
