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...

in review my thoughts

I was all kinds of excited when I learned Elizabeth Lee would be writing a new series featuring motocross riders. I thoroughly enjoyed Reid and Nora’s story in the first book, Throttled, and was anxious to get to read Brett’s story. I wanted to see him get tamed. 🙂

I can’t deny I was a little apprehensive of the pairing between Brett and Georgia at first. She had been through so much already with losing her first husband at a young age and I wasn’t entirely sure how she would pair with manwhore Brett. My fears were laid aside relatively quickly during this book because, honestly, once things started happening between them, Brett had eyes for no one else. (The best version of “tamed” I can ask for.) Even still, it wasn’t all smooth going between them. While I can’t say she was still hung up on her first husband, his loss definitely affected how she looked at life and love. She was terrified at the thought of losing love again and when the guy you’re falling for has a dangerous job as Brett does, those fears get stirred up pretty quickly, understandably.

I wound up really loving Brett and Georgia’s story. He was healing from his injury. She was healing from losing Jamie. They were both going through a lot and I loved how they were there for one another. They had crazy chemistry and things got pretty steamy between them. While there were plenty of feels with this book, it was pretty low on angst, which I appreciated. There’s no doubt these two were better together than apart. I loved reading along as Georgia got a second chance at love and began truly living again. I also, of course, enjoyed watching Brett find something real. It was a great story.

Of course, we get a glimpse into some pretty special moments between Nora and Reid <3 as well as learning more about some of the other characters we were introduced to in the first book. And after the buildup between Chase and Hoyt – and that epilogue – I can’t even tell you how much I’m already looking forward to their story in Clutched. February just can’t get here fast enough!

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

About Elizabeth Lee

Born and raised in the middle of a Midwestern cornfield (not literally, that would be weird), I’ve spent my entire life imagining stories. Stories where the right guy always gets the right girl, first kisses are as magical as they are on the big screen and anything is completely possible if you believe.

Although this journey began years ago, it recently took on a whole new life. After years of devouring hundreds of Romance, YA and New Adult novels, I had an epiphany... I should write a book. And I did it!

If I’m not reading, writing, enjoying drinks with my amazing group of girlfriends or chasing around a sarcastically funny kid, I’m probably watching television shows that were created for teenagers, while my husband teases that I’m too old to watch them.

  1. I’m glad you enjoyed this one! I liked Throttled ok, but I think this story sounds more like my cup of tea. I liked the idea of Brett and Georgia from the beginning, so I’m glad they got their own book! My heart definitely hurt for Georgia because of what she’s lost, so I can understand her being so hesitant to jump back in. I’m glad she does though because Brett was a great guy.
