~ 5 Adrenaline Filled Stars ~
As always Kelly Elliott has hit a home run with Adrenaline. Whether she is writing about swoon worthy cowboys or fast talking NASCAR drivers, she has an amazing talent at creating romanced filled books that leave you feeling happy.
Adrenaline is the second book in Speed Series. It follows the life of a NASCAR driver and a lonely girl who grew up in an orphanage. This book will touch on all your emotions. I was crying, laughing, swooning, and yelling, but in the end I had a HUGE smile on my face. I am always thrilled to read a book by Kelly Elliott because her books captivate me and suck me in from the beginning. She gives us great characters that you can’t help but fall in love with and storylines that are intriguing enough to keep you hooked til the very end. She gives us just the right mix of romance and drama to keep you wanting to turn the page!! Although I will admit as quick as I finish her books, whenever I get to the end I am sad because I don’t want the book to end.
As with Ignite (Book 1), we are swept into the world of NASCAR racing. I loved that we got a little more of the racing element in this book. She made me fell like I was at the track watching the race myself. I loved that!!! She tells this story in Dual POV. I thought she did a wonderful job with the flow and pace of the story. I will say I was a little surprised with the direction she took Malcolm’s story. I was guessing something different after meeting him in Ignite, but I enjoyed this story just the same.
In this book we follow the story of Malcolm and Paislie. Both of these characters are broken for different reasons and have a hard time believing in love. We first met Malcolm in Ignite. He was the rival driver of Emmett and also a huge playboy. His story continues on into Adrenaline and we get to find out more of why he is the way he is. His backstory was a sad one and he had a lot of guilt he needed to overcome. He has sworn off love until he literally runs into Paislie. Paislie is a woman who was abandoned when she was eight. He mom died when she was 5 and her dad decided to drop her off at the local orphanage. So she was basically raised by Sister Elizabeth, who in turn becomes her BFF. I loved Paislie, because even though she had a rough start in life, she made something of herself and turned a negative into a positive. I thought she was a perfect fit for Malcolm and brought out his stronger, yet softer side. Now their road to happiness is not an easy one or a smooth one. They both have a lot of trust issues to overcome. Will they be able to work together to overcome their obstacles and find their HEA??? You’ll need to read this book to find out.
I loved that we got meet some new secondary characters in this story, but I also LOVED that we got to see more of Adaline and Emmitt. I will say that I think sweet little Sophie stole the show for me. I absolutely LOVE when authors work kids into the stories. They always add such warmth to a story and some much needed comic relief.
So if you like fast and dirty talking NASCAR drivers and the woman who tames him, then you should read this book. Adrenaline is a standalone novel with NO cliffhanger!!! You don’t have to read Ignite first, but as always I would highly recommend it so you get the full background of all the characters.
If you are a Kelly Elliott fan, then you don’t want to miss this two book series!!!
Kelly Elliott is married to a wonderful Texas cowboy who has a knack for making her laugh almost daily and supports her crazy ideas and dreams for some unknown reason…he claims it’s because he loves her!
She’s also a mom to an amazing daughter who is constantly asking for something to eat while her fingers move like mad on her cell phone sending out what is sure to be another very important text message.
In her spare time she loves to sit in her small corner overlooking the Texas hill country and write.
One of her favorite things to do is go for hikes around her property with Gus….her chocolate lab and the other man in her life, and Rose, her golden retriever. When Kelly is not outside helping the hubby haul brush, move rocks or whatever fun chore he has in store for her that day, you’ll find her inside reading, writing or watching HGTV.
