Once the brains behind a car-boosting ring, Nic Medina has spent the last three years playing it straight. Now drag racers flock to his L.A. auto shop, Hotwired, for a shot at going head-to-head with the man himself. But when a crooked cop gives Nic a treacherous ultimatum—steal ten high-end cars or watch his nephew disappear into the system—he makes the only choice he can, one that puts the life he’s worked so hard for at risk. No sooner does Nic agree than he spots some nasty competition—and a gorgeous bystander in harm’s way.

A small-town girl with Hollywood dreams, Jordan Bass never expected to be swept up in a real-life drama. But that’s exactly what happens when she witnesses a violent crime. And when a smoldering stranger takes the wheel and practically kidnaps her in a desperate bid to keep her safe, she’s not sure whether to scream . . . or kiss him. Nic’s bad news—but the real bad guys aren’t above silencing a witness. On a collision course with danger, Jordan finds herself falling for the man whose street smarts are keeping her alive . . . and whose touch puts her in high gear.


A little Nic anyone ….

Smokin' Hot!!!
Nic Medina is a dream to read. Tall, sexy, cocky a with a Big Hemi under the hood. Love a hemi engine (taking a deep sigh because the sound of a hemi is just beautiful) and love a male lead that isn’t overshadowed or who doesn't overshadows his female counterpart. Sometimes, a reader will come across a book with a very promising male lead that at some point in the book detaches his man bits and secure said parts in the heroine’s purse for safekeeping. Fortunately, this isn’t the case here. Nic’s character is swoon worthy, damaged, smart and definitely the alpha needed to keep the story on track.

Jordan and Nic had that Bonnie & Clyde feel about them and to top it off Jordan’s character has great humor, inner strength and compassion that the reader is easily drawn to. Her background isn’t too in depth but it can be gathered that here she experienced some really traumatic stuff. There is a mild build up about her past but don’t worry the author drops a lot of hints and its easy to figure out. 

Why a rating of 4.5, well the story just sucks the reader in and makes it very hard to put down. Accelerate has a cast of great secondary wisecracking characters, shady characters that you can’t be too sure about and bad guys who are supposed to be the good guys. Hot guys, not so fast women and fast sexy cars. There isn’t a better combination. Yeah, Nic and Jordan’s HEA came about in a matter of days but sometimes that’s all it takes. 

Happy Reading Everyone!!!!
