Accelerate by Tracy Wolff

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.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

While I really enjoyed the first part of this story, I have to say I had a bit of a hard time really connecting to the characters or getting into the story until we got a bit farther in, but once things got rolling, I absolutely loved it.

I really love the way Tracy Wolff writes. It's so smooth and draws the reader into the scenes. I really enjoyed the plotline of this book and the uniqueness of it. It was a nice, fresh story to sink my teeth into.

I can't wait for the next book in the series!

This is a great start to a new series – with a good ending, but clear indication that there is more of the plot to come!

There are a lot of loose ends introduced, which slowly – and in good time – are generally cleared up, but there is a lot still to discover. Nic is definitely an enigma, even though we hear his side of the story, he denies much even to himself. I did not understand the would-be starlet comments in the blurb, as Jordan doesn't make any mention of it at all. However, she is a character with some depth and some wonderful comments. In fact, the humour between her and Nic at times of tension are great. They also have some powerful chemistry, and he displays amazing patience, for a man used to getting what he wants. The rest of the team is interesting, and I am looking forward to reading this series as it becomes available.

Thanks once again Ms. Wolff for creating a great new cast of people for us!
