Accelerate by Tracy Wolff
This book was provided to me for free through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
Thoughts at a glance: *** (I liked it)
Summary: Jordan just wants to finish school and get on with her life. Having moved to LA to escape some major trauma, she crosses paths with Nic Medina, the drag racer/auto shop owner with a traumatic past of his own.
Nic has to steal a car or else the shady cop who put him up to it will come for his nephew - unfortunately, that car happens to belong to Jordan. Forced to "kidnap" her, he finds himself drawn to her, and before long, she too is caught up in his dangerous world.
Thoughts: This one was definitely action-packed. And I liked finally reading a romance novel with a POC male, even if it seemed like there was some stereotypical characterization involved. *shrug*
What I found more compelling was Jordan's backstory. In fact, considering the nature of what happened to her and the type of stories I tend to hear about in the news (trying not to be spoilery here - I think once you read that part of the book, you'll know exactly what I'm talking about), I'm glad that Wolff decided to write Jordan as she did.
This is the second Tracy Wolff book I've reviewed, and I like what I've read so far. It was a quick, easy read, with a lot of action and great chemistry between the leads.
