Accelerated 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.

My Review

I must say that I was hesitant to read Accelerated by Tracy Wolff. I mean I have enjoyed other books she has written, but was unsure of what to expect from this one. However, Ms. Wolff showed me quite differently as she introduced me to Nic Medina and Jordan Bass. Nic was a family guy that made sacrifices for his family and carried the guilt of unrealistic expectations that he set for himself with the assistance of a crooked officer of the law. Conversely, Jordan was a fighter, a survivor, who was just trying to live with the hand she was dealt, until the eventful day she finds herself being snatched up and stuffed in her car as it is being stolen by none other than Nic Medina.

Nic and Jordan were two characters that had dealt with horrid events in their lives and made it to the other side of through and found safety, security, and love within each other’s arms. So overall, this story was well-paced and had a cast of supporting characters that could hold their own in a novel by themselves. As a result, I am going to give this read 4-stars and recommend, that you jog on over and read Accelerated by Tracy Wolff. I enjoyed this novel as much as I did, if not more, than any of Tracy Wolff’s novels. I am looking forward to what to come of Nic, Jordan, and the rest of the crew, as another story is sure to follow with ending like the one I just read. I mean it wasn’t quite a cliffhanger, but it was definitely a nice lead up to something more to come.
