Too Fast by Alexia Haynes is an unexpected combination of serious and frivolous. The story includes your average erotica love story – two people meet, have sex, fall in love – alongside an examination of the hardships of living with a parent with bipolar disorder.

In Too Fast, Luke and Savannah are the inevitable couple of a casual one-night stand that evolves into true, deep, committed love. Throbbing sex scenes intertwine with Luke and Savannah’s fears and hopes for their relationship. The sex is cigarette good while the relationship over-analysis echoes commonplace insecurities. The romance in Too Fast comprises the predictable frivolous side of the tale.

Haynes diverges from typical soft-erotica with Luke’s character to explore the impact of bipolar disorder on family. Luke isn't rich and he isn't a control freak, in other words, he’s not Christian Grey or Grey’s many erotica twins.

Instead, Luke is the grown-up-too-fast brother of 15-year-old Natalie and the forced into adult-responsibility son of his bi-polar mom. Luke’s mom opts to go without medication for her bipolar disorder. The selfish choice throws Natalie and Luke into dangerous and risky situations. Situations Luke is left to clean up and manage to protect his sister and his mom from homelessness and worse.

Haynes illustrates that living with a bipolar person is living constantly with the unknown. Nothing is consistent. When not having mind-blowing sex with Savannah, Luke struggles to protect Natalie from the “‘not knowing what will happen next’ days.” His perseverance and loyalty to kin makes him more sexy than his ripped abs and carved physique.

The story is worth the quick read for the libido enhancement scenes, but it’s not the sole reason to read Too Fast. Read it for Luke’s family story. His tale outshines the romance and showcases Haynes’ talent as a storyteller.

**SPOILER ALERT**

Luke & Savannah the morning after their first hookup/attempt at a one night stand. Savannah's talk with her friends, sex, sex, sex and intro to messed up mother of Luke & sister. Followed by couch sex, shower sex, backseat of car sex and intro to messed up mother of Savannah. BREAK! Game on! Quickie sex, sex, a declaration of love, sex and...wait for it...the break up. Cry, cry, cry, one tattoo touchup, a reconciliation and, guess what??? Make-up sex! The end.

Well, it wasn't named too fast for no reason! Not really my thing (needs more story to it) but it may float your boat.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review for NetGalley. ( )
