Reid Travers knows how to win. Becoming Motocross royalty was always the plan, and he was willing to make sacrifices along the way to reach his goal. Sacrifices he thought he could live with until he returned to the small town where he grew up and learned to ride, and, more importantly, where he fell in love.
When fate sends Nora Bennett back into his life, he takes one look at her and realizes that he made a huge mistake breaking up with her five years ago. Now, he’ll do whatever it takes to win her back. As Reid sets out to earn her forgiveness and convince her that the guy she’s dating is not the one for her, Nora finds herself torn between what her head is telling her and what her heart wants.
It’s a race he never expected to be in, for a girl he can’t stand to lose again.
If they want to have a future, they’ll have to let go of the past…
Georgia Bennett likes to keep busy. So much so that sometimes it’s like she’s on autopilot. It’s the only way she can cope with the tragic loss of her fiancé and move on with her life. Between nursing school and volunteering at the hospital, she barely has time to breathe. But when the bad boy of motocross gets injured and needs her help, she can’t turn him down.
Brett Sallinger likes his women like his bikes. Fast. Uncomplicated. Replaceable. But when he finds himself forced to take time off of his professional freestyle motocross career to recover from a devastating injury, getting to know the guarded girl nursing him back to health becomes even more important than healing.
She’s suffered so much loss already and is terrified of getting close to someone with such a dangerous career.
He’s determined to bring her back to life and refuses to let her slip through his fingers.
With everything on the line they’ll have to decide if it’s worth the risk…
BOOK #1 THROTTLED:
Small-town life? Check. Motocross racing? Check. Second-chance romance? Check! LOVED all of the sweet elements of this sweet and sexy and heart-pounding romance from Elizabeth Lee! THROTTLED is a throughly entertaining, exciting and refreshing romance with all of the hot and sexy elements you would expect from a book that features motocross racing.
Reid and Nora were high school sweethearts until he suddenly left her and their small town to chase his dreams of becoming a world-class motocross racer. She has tried to move on with a new boyfriend but no one has ever compared to Reid.
“To be young and in love again. No worries. No responsibilities. I twas just me and him, and his bike, of course. The bike was always there. I should have known he’d pick it over me one day.”
Oh, Reid! How could you? Nora is sweet, beautiful and kind. I absolutely loved how Reid pursued Nora once he realized his first love felt the same way about him. If you have never read a motocross racing book, I highly recommend this light, fast-paced, feel-good story. And the steam factor is plenty hot, plus there are some very funny, laugh-out-loud moments in THROTTLED.
”Reid was the reason I could never see a future with anyone else. He was my future.” Awwww!!! Happy reading!
BOOK #2 WHIPPED:
Okay, I can add motocross racing to my list of favorite sports now! While WHIPPED can be read as a standalone, it follows the story of Reid’s best friend Brett, and Nora’s sister Georgia, who were introduced in the first book.
WHIPPED is another sweet and sexy, fairly light romance between Brett, who was injured in an unfortunate bike accident, and Georgia, Nora’s sister. Georgia has been traumatized by the tragic and sudden loss of her fiancé several years before and it has affected every relationship she has. Brett is sexy, a little cocky, funny and surprises himself by falling in love with the emotionally unavailable Georgia.
I love all the easy banter between the guys in this book and the author’s entertaining style of writing. There is no high drama in this book, not a ton of angst, just a sexy and action-packed romance set against the world of competitive motocross racing. I could almost feel the wind in my hair when the author describes the racing scenes! And I also love the small-town setting, with the families who know everyone and the warm feeling of community. If you are looking for a hot, quick, exciting and very sweet romance, then I highly recommend this series by Elizabeth Lee. The next book is about another couple in the motocross racing world and I can’t wait!
The first time I saw her I knew that I was going to enjoy our time together. Why wouldn’t I? She was made just for me. I’d been waiting for a moment like this. For a moment when I knew that I was exactly where I was supposed to be. The nervousness coursing through my veins was matched only by the thrill of feeling her under my body. I’d longed for this. Ached to put my hands on her. To turn her on and learn what made her tick. What made her bend to my will. I needed to control her more than I needed to take my next breath. My heart raced as I approached.
Why am I so nervous?
I was usually calm in these situations. I was Reid Travers, damn it. I was a professional. The tremble in my hand—the one that I quickly shook off—warned that I was entering some unknown territory. How could something so pretty—so wanted—make me feel this way? Maybe it was the fact that as I approached I could see my future unfolding. The future I’d asked for. Sacrificed everything for. The action-packed, everything-you’ve-ever-wanted, thrill ride that I’d always dreamed of.
I circled her slowly and reached my hand out to touch her. The charge that had been building between us released in a single spark as I first made contact. As I ran my hand over her sleek curves, I was practically salivating. The moment I straddled her, my muscles began to tense. As I settled into position, I took a deep breath and felt my lips curl into a wicked grin.
She was so responsive. So ready. My body gripped hers and she gripped mine right back. Like I said, she was made for me and I was damn sure built for her. She took all six-foot-three inches, two-hundred pounds of me with ease.
“So what do you think?” The voice of the man responsible for delivering my new favorite thing in the entire world asked, pulling me out of my intoxicated state and reminding me that we were not alone.
“She’s perfect,” I replied without looking up. Adrenaline had replaced anxiety and I was more than ready to give her a go. I could have sat there for hours and explained to him why, but what I really wanted to do was see if she ran as good as she looked. “Fucking perfect.”
“The bike was built to your exact specifications, but everything is adjustable. Suspension, brakes, throttle. I’m sure your mechanic will be able to tweak it all to your liking.”
“I’m sure she’s just fine,” I assured him.
He was crazy if he thought I was going to let anyone but me handle her. I’d be making the adjustments. If she even needed any. From where I was sitting she was exactly what I’d asked for, tight and loose in all the right places. Though I wouldn’t know for sure until I did what I did best. I moved into position and within seconds she roared to life.
It was time to ride.
Book 3 CLUTCHED is coming February 2016!
