Review - Whipped by Elizabeth Lee

Title: Whipped
Series: Wild Riders #2
Author: Elizabeth Lee
Release Date: October 26, 2015

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...

I LOVE BRETT!!! He is cocky, sexy (and knows it), and a marshmallow on the inside. And he is recovering from an unfortunate injury that wasn’t meant for him.

Georgia is his friend, helping him get around while he is injured. She lost her fiancé and feels she may never move on. And then Brett happens. 

These two are awesome characters. They give as well as take when it comes to picking on each other and the attraction they have burns bright. 

Having only read only one other motocross book I have nothing to compare details to, but the writing is spot on! Elizabeth Lee takes us all on a wild ride that makes you feel like you are riding the back of the bike. There are ups and down, twists and turns that make you feel like you are on the track. The heat between the characters is hotter than the muffler and tail pipe. And watch how fast they shift gears once the walls come down between them. 

The only downside of this book for me was Brett seems to have lost some of his cocky attitude when he interacts with Georgia.

Georgia Bennett is a one-woman whirling dervish. She never stops, she’s always got something going on to keep her busy, be it nursing school, volunteering her time at the hospital or anything else she can do to fill up her time. Because if she stops, she’ll remember what she’s missing out on since her fiancé died three years ago. So when Brett Sallinger needs her help to get back and forth to his doctor appointments and physical therapy, of course Georgia is happy to assist—it’s just one more thing to keep her busy.

The Bad Boy of Motocross, Brett Sallinger, is bound and determined to recover from his devastating injury and return to defend his professional freestyle motocross crown. His typical dating style—if you want to call it one—is uncomplicated, convenient and short lived. That is, until he meets and spends time getting to know one Georgia Bennett and pretty soon Brett realizes that the relationship he’s developing with Georgia is as important as his career. 

Brett and Georgia are moving beyond the ‘friends’ stage. But are they ready? Can Georgia bury her fears of being left alone again? Can Brett convince her to make the leap? Is their relationship worth the risk?

Oh my. I think I need to search You Tube for some motocross freestyle videos. I love Brett and Georgia—even when I wanted to shake them. Brett was so understanding and kind and patient and sexy and awesome. Georgia is so sweet and kind and gentle and terrified of being hurt again. But grief recovery is different for everyone and once Georgia opened her eyes and saw Brett as a man, their relationship was bound to take off. 

I really loved the slow development of their love too. It was well paced and didn’t come across as “instalove” at all. I also loved the relationships between Georgia and her sister, Nora, and Reid and Brett. And I’m DYING to read Clutched, Reid and Chayse’s book!

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!
