The Hot Rods have always assumed he’s kept quiet about his family because his childhood was the worst of all of theirs.

But when Kaelyn DuChamp’s Maserati overheats near the Hot Rod garage, Bryce’s two worlds collide and he’s forced to admit the horrible truth.He’s a rebel. A runaway from an aristocratic, old-money home…or mansion, as the case may be. Owned by parents who never hit him, or molested him, or ridiculed him. After all, they’d have had to acknowledge him to do that.After convincing Kaelyn his job at the garage isn’t a joke, or a crazy phase that’s lasted a decade, he can start damage control both with his gang and the girl he’d always thought was too vibrant for her plastic existence. She can’t spill his secret or everything he’s worked for, built and loved will disappear. His family wouldn’t think twice about throwing money at whoever it took to shut down Hot Rods just to bring their ungrateful heir to heel.Physical versus mental. Refined versus crass.
