✱✱Audio Book Review✱✱ Need for Speed by Brooke Blaine & Ella Frank


Need for Speed
The Elite, Book 2
By: Brooke Blaine & Ella Frank
Narrated by: Aiden Snow & Christian Fox

They train to serve their country.
They strive to be the best.
But only a select few can be....
The Elite

Mateo Morgan
Call Sign: Solo

Reckless, arrogant, and bold, Solo is as known in the US Navy for his bad-boy reputation as he is for his skills as a fighter pilot. It’s a surprise to his peers, then, when he’s chosen to train and compete at the most prestigious naval aviation academy in the world. 

Mission Rules:
1. Kick everyone’s ass.
2. Do whatever it takes to win.
3. Do your best to distract the competition.
4. Especially when that competition is a gorgeous blue-eyed perfectionist who makes your blood run hot. 

Grant Hughes
Call Sign: Panther

Disciplined, smart, and confident, Panther can’t afford not to play by the rules. As the son of a top Navy commander, all eyes are on him, and being anything less than number one is unacceptable. 

Mission Rules:
1. Keep it safe in the air.
2. Prove you’re more than Commander Hughes’s son.
3. No distractions. Stay focused.
4. Don’t fall for your competition - especially not the rebellious heartbreaker with lips made for sinning. 

In the heat of the hot California sun, tempers flare and desires ignite as Solo and Panther try to resist their attraction while fighting to be number one. 

With passion this intense, the question remains: Who’s gonna come out on top?

Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐

Things are taking shape! I left the first book in The Elite Series with some mixed feelings about the predictability and where the romance was going. Even with its big cliffy, I was waffling about continuing with the series. That said, the OCD in me wanted to see where things would go, and spending a few more hours listening to the narration by Aiden Snow and Christian Fox is certainly not a chore.
I really like where this second book in the series is going. Even though we get another cliffy - not as big as the first one, in my opinion, but still a cliffy. Both Solo and Panther have some personal stuff to sort through, and at least one of them just may figure out that things aren't exactly what he thought. These guys are both all alpha, and it's like they don't know how to be any other way. Somehow, though, it works for them. The chemistry between them is good, and the further into the story I got, the more that chemistry comes through. By the time I made it to the cliffhanger in this one, I was pretty well invested in seeing this romance through, and I have to know what happens immediately after the last line in book 2.
So, if you've been undecided about continuing with this series, I'd recommend reading or listening to Need for Speed. I was pleasantly surprised with the way the storyline is taking shape, and these guys have pulled me right in to their story.
