Release Day Blitz and Review: Carolina King by Gwendolyn Grace (Love in the Fast Lane novella)

Title: Carolina King (Drive Me Wild #2)
Author: Gwendolyn Grace
Genre: Contemporary/Erotic Romance

“Ms. Grace’s writing is again entertaining, easy to follow, thoughtful, and deliciously sensual. And also hopelessly addictive.” ~ DJ



Jonna Fox has made it her business to know everything about Mack King and it didn’t matter that he was her brother’s rival. For the last four years, he has dominated the sport of illegal street racing and was the undisputed Carolina King. Racers respected him, emulators hated him and women couldn’t resist him. There was a dangerous edge to Mack which only fueled Jonna’s attraction, but the problem was he had no idea she even existed.

No longer able to ignore her full-blown obsession, Jonna decides to make herself known to Mack. As soon as he spots her boldly moving through the crowd wearing a short skirt, and sexy high heels he wastes no time taking the bait. Except one incredibly hot and passion filled night would never be enough—for either of them.

Jonna learns that underneath the heavy weight of his crown there is so much more to Mack and the life he leads. Racing is everything to him, but in order to stay on top he succumbs to activities that have serious consequences. When a myriad of poor choices result in a situation which threatens to strip Mack King of much more than just his title, he must decide either to give up the life that has defined him or the girl who brings light to his darkness. Which will Mack choose and will it be easy as he thinks to walk away?


So, when I read the first book in this series, Carolina Hurricane, Mack came across as kind of an ass-a playboy bad boy who basically deserved Harley leaving him.  Here in Carolina King?  Yeah, I kind of fell for him in this story...which just proves the point that you should never write off a character based on a story that's not their own.

Hearing Mack's backstory and seeing how he acts and the emotions he shows with Jonna had me doing a complete one hundred and eighty degree turn from how I thought of him before.  Strong, protective alpha male...he's got that nailed down.  Will do anything for someone he cares about?  That too.  

Despite Jonna's young age, her character comes across as more mature than you'd expect.  I found her to be refreshing with her snarky, smart-ass attitude, and the way she and Mack fit together comes across as natural and right.

There's plenty of action and suspense right alongside a healthy dose of hot and steamy intimate scenes, all making this an engaging 4-star read for me.  Oh, and let's not forget the cliffhanger at the end that has me just itching to get my hands on Blake's story coming next...
