Book Review ~ Accelerate (Hotwired #1) by Tracy Wolff

(Hotwired #1)
by Tracy Wolff

Expected publication: November 3rd 2015 by Loveswept

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.

There isn’t a book that Tracy Wolff has written that I haven’t enjoyed and Accelerate did not disappoint one single bit.  With the relationship between Nic and Jordan, the family atmosphere of Hotwired, combined with ‘dirty’ cops makes this an intense nail-biting and entertaining story.

The writing style flows effortlessly and with just enough pace to make it an exciting page turner.  The plot and the characters really draw you in and makes you look forward to the next installment of this addicting series.  Although Nic and Jordan’s story wrapped up quite nicely, there was a cliffhanger ending that left me begging for more – and yes, I do want more!

With fast-paced, high-octane thrills along with supercharged sex, Accelerate is a sensational read that will have you hanging on for dear life.  

4 stars

Tracy Wolff collects books, English degrees and lipsticks and has been known to forget where—and sometimes who—she is when immersed in a great novel. At six she wrote her first short story—something with a rainbow and a prince—and at seven she forayed into the wonderful world of girls lit with her first Judy Blume novel. By ten she’d read everything in the young adult and classics sections of her local bookstore, so in desperation her mom started her on romance novels. And from the first page of the first book, Tracy knew she’d found her life-long love. Now an English professor at her local community college, she writes romances that run the gamut from contemporary to paranormal to erotic suspense.
