Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from Give Me Books and the author.  I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255:  "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".


A sexy carjacker takes a would-be starlet for the ride of her life as a pulse-pounding new series from New York Times bestselling author Tracy Wolff begins.

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.

My Thoughts:

Jordan Bass has a love affair with cars – which she doesn’t quite realize at the beginning.  Nic Medina also has a love of cars – the faster the better.  If you’re a fan of the NHRA what better backdrop for the story.  If you don’t know what the NHRA is, have you watched Grease?  Think of the scene with White Lightening.  Compare it to the Fast and Furious franchise?  I can’t say for certain since I’ve never seen any of the movies but I can certainly picture Vin Diesel in this story.

I am a fan/lover of cars and I would have been perfectly happy with that but our author kicks it up a notch.  Our author never does what you expect – she constantly surprises her readers.  In this instance, she creates a female character that can take care of herself but who also appears to be timid.  Her male character has surprises of his own.  He might be a tough guy but some of his actions are the result of the love for his family. 

Just like a great race, you can stop reading until the last word is read.  It’s fast paced with lots of action, suspense, and eventually love.  Jordan keeps a lot close to her chest and it’s not until toward the end that you will find out why.  It will be interesting to see where our author takes her readers next especially since the ending seems to leave some things up in the air.
