It comes as no surprise that, after eight movies, the cultural influence of The Fast and the Furious film franchise should permeate the hallowed walls of Romancelandia. With stars like Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and Tyrese Gibson, it's no wonder that we fell for these anti-heroes. The world of the Fast and the Furious offered us strong women, too, who challenged these men—and thus our little shipper heart's were sealed forever to this crew. However, the franchise is winding to a close (Maybe? Who knows at this point!) and so romance is the place we must turn to to get our fix!
In my head, Katana Collins' Harrison Street Crew are The Fast and the Furious guys. Ex-Con introduces us to this crew as ex-convict Shane McGill is released from prison and finds himself pulled back into the car club that he wants nothing to do with. As the prologue says, Shane wasn't part of the crew when he went into jail, but he's part of it once he's behind bars. This is a pretty dark read and handles some intense—even triggering—material, so it's not for everyone, but the writing is stellar and the sex is on fire.
