Review and Giveaway - Throttled by Elizabeth Lee

Title: Throttled 
Series: Wild Riders #1 
Author: Elizabeth Lee 
Release Date: August 29, 2015 

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.

Reid Travers had grown up. He had always been attractive, but time and professional racing had done something to his features and body that he should have thanked the good Lord every day for. His jawline and nose seemed more chiseled. His eyes wiser and brighter. Well-worn jeans hung around his hips, the waistband sitting just below a set of abs that had me thinking all kinds of things—none of which had anything to do with a real estate transaction. While my stomach was a knot of nervousness, below that something inside of me was coiling so tightly that the possibility of shooting straight into the sky seemed feasible. Especially if he kept looking at me the way he was. His brown eyes were locked on mine and I was helpless to look away. “Nora Bennett,” he said as he closed the distance between us. He ran his hand down his jawline, the days’ worth of stubble only adding to his new all-grown-up appeal. “How are you?”

“Fine,” I answered softly as he reached out. The second his hand touched my arm, I knew I was in trouble—his rough, calloused fingertips met my smooth skin and it was like striking a match.

WHY OH WHY HAVE I NEVER READ A MOTOCROSS BOOK BEFORE NOW? I may have a new flavor to add to my addiction.

This book was HOT, and fun, and all about second chances. 

Nora and Reid dated in high school, until he left her to chase his dream at being a professional motocross racer. They never really got over each other but when Reid shows back up in town, Nora is not so easily persuaded to forgive him.

I really, really loved this book! It was sweet, fun and had me hooked from the beginning. There is a lot of emotion in this book, and will have you wanting more and more as you turn the pages. 

I can only hope the next book comes out soon so I can feed my new addiction!

Reid Travers knows sacrifice—he said goodbye to his first love in order to have a chance at being successful in his second love, motocross. And he’s been successful on the race course—successful with his career and with bedding the ladies, but no one has captured his heart like Nora.

Nora Bennett is the girl Reid left behind five years ago. But she’s a woman now—successful in her own right. And she’s almost forgotten about Reid. Yeah, not really, but she’s trying. She has a job she loves and a boyfriend. Who needs Reid?

Reid is going to find a way for Nora to forgive him and see him for the man he is now—to recognize that he knows he gave her up thinking it was for her own good. But he’s back and he’s not one to take no for an answer.

Oh, motocross hotties, where have you been all my life? And a second chance romance to boot! I truly enjoyed the romance of Reid and Nora. I love how Nora makes him work for it—she’s not a pushover! And Reid’s brother Hoyt, his best friend, Brett and Nora’s sister, Georgia round out the main cast of characters in this series start. Next book is about Brett and Georgia and I can’t wait! 
~ Review by Missy

When I'm not writing or playing the part of wife and mom, you can find me dancing back-up for Beyonce, singing -back-up for Miranda, or sunning myself on the beach with a drink in hand. Here's the thing about being born and raised in a small town--you have a very vivid imagination! Now, I channel it all to create stories where the girl always ends up with the right guy, first kisses are magical, and a happy ending is just that!
