Clutch by Tess Oliver

    Released: 5th November 2013


    When Taylor Flinn’s parents shipped her off to an aunt for her last year of high school, James “Clutch” Mason had convinced himself it was for the best. Taylor, the wild, impulsive and far-too-appealing seventeen-year-old had been driving him nuts. Her school girl crush on him had been the last thing he needed. Now he had time to concentrate on his booming classic car part business, his new found love– drag racing, and keeping his twenty-year-old brother Barrett out of trouble.

    But when Taylor returns from her aunt’s more grown up, utterly seductive, and attached to another guy, Clutch realizes that the only thing he ever needed or wanted was Taylor Flinn.



    She came around the corner, unexpectedly and like a hurricane of stars. My mind went completely blank. I hung up and stuck the phone in my pocket.
    Taylor’s long lashes curtained her smooth cheeks as she dropped her gaze.
    The adrenaline rush left behind from getting my hands on a sixty-five Shelby morphed into an explosion of every emotion I’d ever felt. I lunged forward and grabbed her hand. She gasped as I dragged her around the back of the building. I pressed her up against the bricks and stared down at her.

    Review by Jodie
    5 amazing stars
    This is the second book in the custom culture series but can
    be read as a standalone.
    I loved loved this book. I already wanted more of Clutch and
    Taylor from their supporting roles in Freefall.
    This book brings you the story of Clutch and Taylor and also
    gives you more of Nix, Scotlyn, Dray, Cassie and we meet Barrett, Jason and
    Clutch is a 6ft plus beast of a man…. He is strong, hot, and
    sexy with a huge heart…. He runs a classic car parts business with Jason, who
    is Taylor’s big brother.
    Taylor is eighteen old high school wild child who has had a
    crush on Clutch since she was sixteen….her parents sent her away to live with
    her aunt because they believe she is out of control….
    Taylor returns on her eighteenth birthday and is allowed to
    stay as long as she agrees to her parents rules…. Main one being she stays away
    from Clutch.
    Clutch has denied his feelings for Taylor for years because she
    is underage and forbidden.  He stays away
    from her but just because she is out of sight and reach doesn’t mean she is out
    of thought.
    Clutch isn’t aware Taylor is back until he runs into her at
    work….their chemistry is sizzling hot, once their eyes lock on one another its
    little no one else exists.
    Now that Taylor is eighteen, Clutch is finding it harder and
    harder to stay away….. A hot passionate kiss pops the cork on both their bottled
    up feelings for one another…..now there is no going back.
    Taylor’s family think her obsession with Clutch is just a
    school girl crush which she will grow out of but Taylor knows different…. For Taylor,
    Clutch is the one….he makes her feel like she is home.
    Taylor goes against her over barring family and pursues
    There is many obstacles on the road for happiness for Clutch
    and Taylor but true love like theirs is always worth fighting for….
    This story had me gripped from the first page and I wasn’t able
    to put it down….. I cannot wait for more from this series.
    Custom Culture series is a must read for all romance

    in confidence and trying things in the bedroom (and every where else) that she never even considered during her marriage but they have known each other for just 10 short weeks and already they have been through enough drama to last a lifetime.

    Will Lauren listen to taunts from jealous exes and her own self doubt; or will the love (and lust) Lauren has found in Gabe’s arms be enough for her to let go of her painful past to build a future with Gabe. Resolution is the conclusion of Gabe and Laurens story, it will take you on a roller coaster of emotions, with some steamy and erotic sex scenes, just to keep your pulse racing, like Saviour, some scenes are gut wrenching, it will have you laughing, crying and wanting to not only hug Gabe and Lauren but also wanting to shake some sense into them. Buckle up and enjoy the ride

    I was born and raised in a small working class town in Essex, just outside of East London. I am married with three sons and in 2006 we all moved to the other side of the world, settling on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, about 50K outside of Melbourne Australia. It’s a whole new way of life for us down here,we are so lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world.

    I am currently a stay at home mum but in the past I have worked at Marks & Spencer, as a classroom assistant/teachers aid and have run my business.

    As well as writing, I love to read and have been known to get through four or five books a week. My other interests are watching my boys play football…The round ball version; I am happy to admit to being an addict of social media and I owe a lot to my Facebook and Twitter family in promoting my work; I am also rather partial to a glass… or bottle of wine, a nicely chilled Marlborough Sav Blanc being my favorite. Being a born and raised Essex girl, I will happily admit to be being a big fan of spray tans, Shellac and am regularly, waxed, tinted and sculpted,

    although I am more likely to be found in thongs/flipflops than a pair of white stilettos these days.
