    1. ARC received in exchange for an honest reviewI fell in love with Winter Travis and her Devils Knight series and this one oh boy another winner for freaking sureI love books that capture you from beginning and as the story unfolds it just draws you in and before you know it is like 2am in the morning and you finished the whole book :-)Luke and Violet had my total attention. Violet was such a sweet person and she didn't have an easy life, but she was making the best of her life and trying to be no [...]

    2. Luke loves his car and racing. So what does this easy good looking guy do?!?!. become his baby sister guardian!! The first rule is?!?!?member to pick her up at the library!! Whoops!!Violet loves reading and guess what her job is? Ding, ding.a librarian!! It was getting late and it's pouring out, so what does this awesome librarian do? Well read the book ;)Super hot and smexy in my opinion :)

    3. ARC provided for an honest review.3.0 - 3.25 Princess starsViolet Barnes has her dream job of Librarian, where she meets a 14-year-old Frankie Jensen. Frankie has been orphaned like Violet, so they bond in that. But Violet doesn't immediately bond with Frankie's oldest brother and guardian Luke, local mechanic and a member of the three brothers who make up the Skid Row Kings, street racing team, which they also named their garage. Misunderstandings and miscommunications cause these Violet and Lu [...]

    4. Oh boy, where to begin. It was such a surprise to find this on my kindle today. I knew instantly that my day would be filled with Winter's wonder. This book blew me away. Luke and Violet had my total attention. I was a slave to them. I loved the quiet innocence that was Violet. Luke was a prat to her at the start, but he redeemed himself quite quickly, once he realized he was so totally wrong about her. I cried for Violet, and felt for Luke in his feeling of helplessness in regards to his sister [...]

    5. I loved so much about this book! The book overall felt very real and believable. There were no outlandish characters or bazaar ideals. I've been deep in the reading trenches of dark and twisted romance for a while so it felt nice to read something that is more low-key and "real life." That being said, there were still plenty of feels and action. There was just enough subject matter regarding the auto racing and its community to explain what was going on and peak your interest, but not so much th [...]

    6. Woah!!! You better hold on to your seats, your hearts, and your panties for this one ladies. Winter Travers holds nothing back as she gives us hot men who love to drive fast cars! OMG. I just devoured this book in one sitting. Yes, it was THAT GOOD! Luke grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, literally. People either go down on the wrong side of the law or they make it out and do something good with their lives. Luckily Luke was determined to be better. He struggled at first but he wouldn't ha [...]

    7. Title: DownshiftAuthor: Winter TraversSeries: Skid Row Kings #1Genre: contemporary romanceThemes: enemies to loversHeat: 2/5Rating: 2/5Read for Quirky Blind Date With A BookThis was another of those books which I found really drew me in for the first 25%, and then unfortunately failed to hold my interest for the remainder. I loved the premise - an opposites attract, the shy librarian meets the gruff mechanic, romance, even with the enemies to lovers trope thrown in. But really, I found both char [...]

    8. Winter Travers has done it again. Only this time it's not a hot MC she is writing about it's fast cars, beautiful women and a trio of hot hot brothers. Downshift is the debut book to a new series called Skid Row Kings. Downshift starts out fast and continues to fire on all cylinders right up to the end. Luke and Violets story starts out rocky but after Luke does some thinking he realizes that Violet is just what he needs. But after hurting Violet he has his work cut out for him. Luke is not acus [...]

    9. So very disappointed. This story had so much potential, but the writing was so horrible. The author used the past perfect tense way too often. Then she mixed present and past tense verbs, and it was just a horrible mess. I was so disappointed because this book had serious potential. The storyline was awesome. Luke was fabulous. His brothers were great, and their interplay with Luke was funny. Violet was pretty awesome, too. Even the little sister was great. Frankie kept the story going, and so d [...]

    10. I really enjoyed this. Luke was living the life of a single man working non stop to get his garage up and running when suddenly he was the guardian of his 14 year old sister and his two adult brothers living with him.d he wouldn't have it any other way. One thing Luke really enjoys is cars and racing - it's in his blood. Violet is alone in the world. She works and she reads! She enjoys her job as a librarian even if she is sometimes bored. Violet notices a young girl that seems to be at the libr [...]

    11. This is a new series by Winter Travers. Her previous series was MC based, those books are great. If this first book is an indication of the quality of the continuing books, she has a great new series. Her writing flows along so effortlessly it's amazing. Three brothers one little sister should give us the readers some great stories to look forward to. This book is about the oldest brother Luke and Violet the shy librarian, street racing, jealousy from old foes and dealing with the loss of much l [...]

    12. I received an Arc for an honest review.I absolutely love this authors books. Her writing style is engaging and with each book it gets better and better.This is a different type of genre from what she's written before but equally as good. The main characters are strong Alpha's and have you engaged almost from the first page. Lucas is a strong man but floundering under the burden he feels being the eldest and in charge of his younger sister. What follows is an unique story told from different pers [...]

    13. I loved this book! Luke is the whole package, he is hot, sexy and a race car driver! Violet is a sweet and beautiful Librarian. She meets Frankie (Luke's little sister) when Luke forgot to pick his sister up. The first time she meets Luke, they dislike each other. After they both get to know each other, they realize that their first impressions was so wrong. They are so great together. There isn't one thing about this book that disappointed me. I loved Downshift from the first page to the last. [...]

    14. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Solidly fantastic stars. I was my expecting this book to be so good without all my yummy sexy fun. But what Winter does is makes you love each and every character so that the lack of over the top steamy scenes are not missed. What your left with is a crazy good story and a need to read the next book in the series. It's got a yummy alpha male who races cars and is good with his hands. A h who is sweet and actually likable who also can hold her own against others. Gotta lo [...]

    15. I had never read a "racing" book like this before and was unsure I would even like it. I usually skip over books like this. This one was a surprise. I ended up liking this book better than the two MC books of hers. In my reviews of the her other books, I complained that the plot was just a little too simple for me. This one however was way better. There was more conflict in the story than our main h's low self-esteem. The author is progressing into a direction I can get behind. Looking forward t [...]

    16. I was lucky and received an ARC!!! WOW!!! This is another great book by Winter and it will be another great series. Don't let the fact that this is a book about racing and if you don't know anything about cars scare you. It is explained along the way and you aren't lost to what's happening. The story line keeps you entertained and wanting more. This, I'm sure, isn't the end of Violet and Luke's story. It does end with a teenie tiny cliff hangerbut not about this book. It's what to come for the n [...]

    17. Given ARC in exchange for reviewThe first book in the new series from Winter is a great read that you will love and struggle to put down, the pace of the story was brilliant it did not feel like it was rushed or trying to cram too much into the story. Downshift is a great setup for what looks like being another brilliant series from a great author, although the book is about Luke and Violet we are also introduced to other characters that I for one want to read more about and also more Luke and V [...]

    18. I though I wasn't going to like Luke very much, especially since I already liked Frankie and Violet! But Winter proved me wrong. Big bald tatted guys have feelings too! This is a fun fast paced look at street racing and the men who live for the speed and the machine. I was drawn in and was soon turning pages with a vengeance. I was thoroughly entertained and am looking forward to LeeLee and Kurt, but the mysterious redhead and Mitch are a close second!

    19. I honestly have to say that this start to the new series??? Totally awesome.Luke and Violet have so many things in common, yet are uniquely different in a lot of ways as well. I enjoyed how she started to blossom as she learned about the things that Luke enjoyed. The characters were well-developed and I found myself laughing several times at the antics of Luke's two younger brothers. I cannot wait for the next book in the series. Well done, Winter, well done!

    20. Skid Row Kings my new one click.Downshift is our introduction to Skid Row Kings and Winter didn't disappoint. Violet and Luke have set the bar high for Ms. Travers new world. I found this couple to be funny, passionate and believable. I'm looking forward for more from the Jensen men and Frankie. Frankie story is sure to be the wildest ride of all. Three older brothers and a young women who will be coming into her own. I can't wait for the next installment of The Skid Row Kings.

    21. Winter Travers is a new author for me so I wasn't really sure what to expect, but I'm very glad I took the chance. This was well written and I liked the street racing scenes much more that I would've imagined. It was fun. I only wish it was steamier!

    22. ★★☆☆☆Genre: New-Adult, Romance, SuspenseRecommend: NoBook 1NO SPOILERS Review originally posted on Aoibh Reads 26 Y/O Violet Barnes is on her own. Since her parents' death she has built her own life and keeps herself to herself. A book nerd, she works in the library to earn some money and fulfill a passion. Luke Jensen owns the local garage, where his two brothers work, and his younger teenage sister Frankie lives. Luke doesn't have time for innocence and vanilla, whilst Violet doesn't [...]

    23. Audio reviewI listen to this book in one day. It drew me in and I didn’t want to hit pause. I was looking for something different I am a shifter and MC gal I’m usually not a sports type girl but this one may have changed my mind. Luke came from the wrong side of town but was able to rise above it and made something of his life. After his parents died he finds himself responsible for his 14 year old sister. A big change from what he was use to in his life. He is use to fast cars and easy wome [...]

    24. Wow. This book has been on my TBR for ages and now I'm smacking myself for waiting this long.Violet is a librarian who leads a quiet life. She befriends a 14 year old girl, Frankie, who comes into the library and ends up taking her home one day while it's raining because her ride wasn't able to pick her up. Here Violet meets Luke.Luke worked from the bottom up. He started with nothing to having everything he has ever dreamed of with his shop. He is raising his younger sister, Frankie, and his tw [...]

    25. I'm in love!I've heard so many things about this series, that I just had to see for myself what it was all about. I'm so glad I read this book its amazing! I would call this an enemies to lovers because Violet and Luke despised each other but ended up in love. I can't wait to read more!

    26. DownShift: Skid Row Kings Series, Book#1 By Winter TraversEven though I liked this book. I could only give it two starts because the editing it and the end of the book suck big time. It felt unfinished and something was missing with everyone. The main characters and the second dairy characters where great

    27. DNF. Was not my cup of tea. 25% into the book and I'm getting more information on cars, drag racing etc rather than the development of romance between H & h. Too much technical information on that stuff as though the author is trying to impress with the knowledge gained about cars and racing whilst writing this book.

    28. Wow! Loved Violet and Luke! Luke might have been hard on Violet at the start but he wooed her in the end. Loved their connection. And Frankie was great! Love that she gives it right back to her brothers.
