Favorite Quotes:

“There was so many things wrong with this picture. The most disturbing was how my panties were mingling with other panties. Just, ew.”

“It was the kind of kiss that ignited a fire in your soul and you would do anything to stay as the flames consumed you.”

“The tough girl with a smart mouth act doesn’t do it for me but the girl underneath who hums in the shower, likes the feel of rain on her face and cares about other people’s feelings, now she makes my dick hard.”

“Jonna Lee, where is the rest of your skirt? You are going to catch old and new-monia dressed like that.”

My Review:

This is a new author for me and I am ecstatic over the discovery. I want to read Gwendolyn Grace’s entire catalog – past and present. I know nothing about street racing, but I didn’t need to know anything about it to enjoy every bit of this story. Ms. Grace has a humorous and crafty voice in telling this tale about a snarky young woman who is at loose ends and looking for a fresh start. Most of us have been there… but of course despite our hopes, we all drag our pasts around with us, as no matter where we go – there we are. The writing flows well and I found it clever, emotive, insightful, and entertaining. The sensual scenes sizzled and left me in need a cool drink and my startled husband. An easy and quick read, but this is only the first in the series. Thankfully the cliffhanger was not of the evil variety, but left me eager to continue. Hurry Ms. Grace, the race is on!

**I received an ARC for an honest review.**

This novella definitely delivers Love in the Fast Lane and at times the characters difinitely Drove Me Wild.

I have really enjoyed Gwendolyn Grace’s debut in the author world and I love that all of her stories are easy to connect with and get consumed by and Carolina Hurricane is just another one of her successes.

I am not a spoiler kind of person so I will give nothing away. I will however say that I really enjoyed both Harley and Fox’s characters. I liked that Harley is such an independent and strong woman, but I was so glad when she finally realized that letting Fox in was the right thing to do. And man did those two have some serious sexual chemistry.

I like that they were both able to finally be open and honest with each other because once they were they had both changed for the better. Of course Fox was always pretty awesome but just for a bit he was kind of a jerk but it was understandable considering what he was wanting and what Harley was willing to give, but by the end of this novella they had their issues worked out and I am also hoping to get a little more of their story in book two.

If you like sexy sweet men, feisty women and serious sexual chemistry and a bit of fast cars in the mix then you should definitely check out this book.

I was gifted this novella for an honest review and it’s right up my alley. I’m a car buff raised under a mechanic father and I LOVE CARS, especially old muscle and race cars. Gwendolyn Grace enticed me with the cover and blurb and then her amazing story, characters, both primary and secondary and the way she tied it all together. I also love that she included her Playlist. I pulled it up and played low in the back as I was reading, AMAZING!

Harley is the main female character that is hell on wheels. She uses her smart mouth as a protective measure against people getting too close to her. This girl has had it rough and is afraid to trust anyone. She is trying to figure out what to do with her life and get away from a relationship with Mack that’s not good for either of them when Fox comes into her life when they are closing things due to the approaching hurricane. He offers her a ride and she finally accepts. They end end up sharing a hotel and drinking and Fox figures her out pretty quick. They make the best out of their time in the hotel doing different things.

Harley finds work at Annette’s Catch, on the island where she and her Gran used to live, and it’s owned by Fox’s mom and step-dad. Harley doesn’t know how to do relationships and she keeps pushing Fox away. She finds a room with Blake and Tayia, which upsets Fox.

Racing comes into play and Mack comes back into the picture and rocks the boat and Woody, Fox’s brother has some issues with racing that Fox is trying to help him fix. Life gets really exhilarating. The supporting characters have great roles and keep you hopping with stories too.

This is a non-stop, roll with it, don’t put me down, what’s gonna happen next, sexy, fun, comedy, drama, all wrapped into one, oh no, it’s done?! Gotta have the next one!!!

What an amazing, mind-blowing start to this series! I was so amazed that I want to go out and find me a hot street racer just because! 😉 Hahaha.

The writing in this book was what blew me away. I found myself laughing, crying, and swooning over Fox that I didn’t know what was going to happen at times, which is what I love about books. When you think it’s going to go one direction, BAM it takes you in a total different direction.

Harley is one tough chick who has had her fair share of heartbreak in her lifetime and doesn’t want it to happen again. But during a terrible storm, her feelings are tested in a dingy hotel room and then her life is changed forever.

Drew “Fox” Fox is one hardcore and insanely amazing guy. He doesn’t strike me as the bad boy type that you would typically find in street racing but the more humble and laid back guy. Yeah, he made my heart flutter a few times while reading it. Nope, he’s mine too. Nobody can have him because I have claimed him. 😉

This book was an impressive, amazing, fantastic start to a new series that I know is going to climb it’s way to the top!! READ THIS NOW! #FoxsLady
