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.
Accelerate by Tracy Wolff
Reading Accelerate had me reminiscent of the FAST AND THE FURIOUS movies. Sexy cars and with sexy uber alpha males, Acclerate did bring the heat.
Strapped for cash, Jordan decides to purchase a car from a the police impound auction.
Nic, felon, car shop owner and street racer, is threatened by a dirty cop. He must steal a car, aka Jordan’s newly police auction purchased car, or the cop is going to frame him and his sister. Unfortunately, Jordan gets caught up in the heist and is taken along for the ride.
Jordan decides to put everything on the line to help out Nic and his car shop crew.
Accelerate was slow building, with a very quick climax, that left us HANGING (with a capital H) at the end.
I received this ARC copy of Accelerate from Random House Publishing Group - Loveswept in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication November 24, 2015.
