I was standing in the middle of nowhere with no real destination in mind. There was only the dire need to disappear from Charleston. With my head tilted up to the gray sky and my eyes closed, I let the light droplets of rain fall onto my face. I’d reached a crossroads in my life and was trying to find a reason to keep going. I had no idea a hurricane was coming and fate would choose that moment for our paths to cross.

“Hey! You okay?” A voice called out to me in a deep southern drawl, pulling me out of my fog. “Can I give you a ride somewhere?” I opened my eyes and found a pair of intense blue eyes staring back at me. His name was Fox. He had an irresistibly sexy grin, and judging by his fast car, a need for speed. His timing couldn't have been more perfect. I was looking to start a little trouble, since it was what I did best and he seemed like a good target. After sharing an incredible night together, I quickly learned that Fox was more than he appeared and full of delicious surprises. He gifted my body with unbelievable pleasures and unlocked emotions that I’d wanted to keep hidden. When I pushed him away, he left claiming a piece of my soul.

I never imagined that getting into his car that day would start a transformation within me and forever change the course of my life. Fox challenged every rule I’d ever made by tearing down the carefully constructed barriers around my heart. I never intended to fall in love with him but how could I resist a man who was so different than I’d expected and more than I ever deserved? The grayness in my life caused by loss and betrayal was waging a storm within me; Fox was the anchor I needed to stop the inner turmoil and bring me back into the light.

**Carolina Hurricane is the first book in the Drive Me Wild- Love in Fast Lane Novellas series**

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!
