All Revved Up (Dangerous #1)
Faith Bennett loved Miguel the moment she saw him. But she always knew his future was in New York, while hers was tied to the auto shop that was her close-knit famil ...more
Okay, first of all I'm sorry I can't give a higher rating, but...
Can you imagine a reunion, hot sex, drama, more hot sex, secret child, hot sex, unresolved family issues, happy ending - and all that in forty pages?
In other words, this story has all the right elements, super hot hero material, pretty nice idea, great potential... and it's so short, I kind of started reading it, blinked, and it was over.
So, here I am, yet again, stuck with my "not enough room for development" speech. Serious ...more
I think if I've never read Anne Calhoun's short story in which she made me feel like I've indulged in a full blown book, then I'd have more appreciation for this piece. But the mind knows what the mind knows I suppose.
Miguel is rich and spanish? (How fucking sexy is that.) And Faith isn't. When they were teenage ...more
With that in mind, this is just way too short to give above 2 stars. Although the story itself was intriguing it really needs to be made into a full-length novel, which I believe could have been possible since there is a lot of drama packed into the short ...more
The opening sentences are amazing and hooked me right away: "The smell of motor oil, degreaser, and coolant were among the very few scents in the world that made Miguel Santos’s d*ck ...more
As always with very short stories, I don't think you can judge them too harshly on being abrupt. I wouldn't expect great swathes of characterisation and a tidy little epilogue.
In this case my rating has to be based on the incredible things the writer has done in so few words. Yes, I could have done with more in some areas, but I have to say that the depth of character and emotion (not to mention scorching love scenes!) that was achieved here ha ...more
Faith and Miguel were high school sweethearts. Madly in love they spent time in their own little world for years. Until close to graduation Faith left Miguel without any warning o ...more
Because it was way too rushed .. not enough explained ... and it was so fucking unreal ..
I mean come on!!
(view spoiler)[She and his mother hid his son from him for 11 years and had the gut to tell him it's his fault for trying to mask the hurt he felt when they broke his heart??!! I mean WHAT.THE.FUCK??!!
and his mother didn't even regret it??
Plus where is the scene where he meets his son?? (hide spoiler)]
I'm pi ...more
A very quick and steamy read.
I just love these Wicked Reads. They are short, with a good story and lots of steam. Just what I need to read sometimes! And if this is what you're looking for then let me tell you about All Revved Up. It must be my fascination with Mercy Thompson, but I like the storyline of the heroine being a car mechanic, it's sexy! So Faith was the girl from the wrong side of the tracks, dating Miguel, the rich kid who had a bright future ahead back in high school.
They had amazing chemistry, but somehow sh

Miguel Santos and Faith Bennett's book.
I wanted a quick read before I dove into my next book because my next book is going to be a long one. (which I prefer actually)
Great cover, and great little story. I really like stories where the couples history starts out years earlier when they were in grade school or high school. So for that reason, I picked All Revved Up. That attracted me.
I could feel the passion between Miguel and Faith and I could also feel their des ...more
When reading this book almost the same level of lust and con ...more
Usually, stories/books where couples reunite after years apart are not my cup of tea. They make me sad. : ) But I love Sylvia Day's writing, so I wanted to,read this story.
This story made me a little sad as well, because for such a short story, Day really made you feel the characters emotions and how much they missed each other during their years apart. The story was well written. The surprise Faith had for Miguel was well-explained. I'm looking forward to the sequel to see how faith and Miguel ...more
