Review: Accelerate (Hotwired #1) by Tracy Wolff

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Publication Date: November 24, 2015


A sexy carjacker takes a would-be starlet for the ride of her life as a pulse-pounding new series from New York Timesbestselling 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.

Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.


I will begin advising you to wait to read the book because its sequel is coming in December of 2016 which is a little more than a year away. This book ends in a sort of cliffy way. The main couple is doing okay, but the dirty cop stuff is going to cause even more trouble in the next book which I hope that it will be about Lena and Jace and not about Nick and Jordan. It's not like I didn't like these two, but I really like the idea of a book about Lena and Jace. Peyton and the cop at the end whose name I can't remember are looking like a potential couple too.

Another thing that I wanted to mention was the misleading blurb which I didn't mind, but I am sure some people will. The basics are the same but Nic never steals ten high-end cars. The car he steals is worth 12.000 dollars. Jordan never mentions her Holywood dreams and she doesn't witness a violent crime, just the theft of her car.

The story has a lot of potential and I hope the second book won't disappoint. It's quite balanced excerpt from the part where it comes to Jordan's story. The author doesn't reveal until the latter part of the story what happened to Jordan in full extent, but makes it obvious through out the entire book (at least part of her story). Nike and Jordan are two well built characters. They have their demons and try to live with them every single day which is not easy. Their relationship is nice and I will look forward to seeing them in the following book(s).

The book was an easy road for me, but I don't think that will be the case for some of the readers because it contains some stuff that are not easy to read about. The plot that begins with Nic stealing a car has the potential of being amazing and I want to see that happening. The writing is simple, but that's not a bad thing. I would suggest someone to read the book, but with a little caution.
