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
Short, sexy, great sex scenes, good story but, would have been better if it was longer. Faith and Miguel fell in love in high school. She was from a loving blue collar family, he was rich, a football star, and heading to Princeton with a bright future in his family's business. She didn't want to hold him back so she unselfishly made a clean break which devastated both of them. He comes back for the first time 11 years later to get her out of his system so he can move on. They have a passionate r ...more

So this was a short story, quick read and all...and as such, I felt it was kind of rushed. I liked the whole idea, would have loved for more depth though...but alas it was a short story.

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

All Revved Up Okay, I liked the story. First thing I've read by Ms. Day and it wasn't bad. It was just too much going on for such a short installment. I would be interested to see how the series moves forward.

I don't mind novellas when they are part of a series but this seems to be a standalone 40 page "book" with a promised continuation since 2012. It is 2017 now so I doubt Sylvia Day will be continuing the story of Miguel Santos and Faith Bennett.

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

I decided to get this book for 4 reasons: 1) great price 2) Latin hero 3) the cover 4) the first chapter excerpt. It didn't disappoint. Even though Miguel and Faith hadn't seen each other since they were teens, the chemistry between them is combustible. The passion and intensity of their feelings leaps off the page.

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

Wow - this is pretty intense for such a tiny story!

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

4.5 stars! I'm a total sucker for second chance romances and especially those that feature people from differing socio-economic environments just because the problems they face are different and it's interesting to see how a couple handles them. I must say this story was extra hot and I loved it!

I really enjoyed this one. I am a fan of Sylvia Day I think it can be safe to say. I've read 4 short reads by her and the first 3 books in the Crossfire series. I enjoyed each full length and two of her shorter reads including this one. I felt very connected to the characters even though I only spent 43 pages with them!

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
This book was so good up until the last chapter which ruined the whole book for me!!!

Because it was way too rushed .. not enough explained ... and it was so fucking unreal ..

I really enjoyed this book, but it was too short and felt like the story ended as soon as it began. I really wish is was longer. Faith and Miguel are great characters that I was rooting for from the beginning.

A very quick and steamy read.
Short, but sexy and fun read.

Well, that was smutty. And apparently just a novella. And it all worked out in the end because the sex was just that good, I guess.

It was only 43 pages so more of a short story than a book. I liked it, but it was too short and not worth the small price I paid to download it.

Hate that just as it gets interesting it's finished and the follow on book does not seem to be out yet. Why does this author always do this???

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

The story had a premise that's often used but I can overlook that. What I can't overlook is story length and character development. I would have enjoyed it a lot more if it would have contained the aforementioned. Okay, here it is to sum it up:

More of a 3.5 stars. I liked it!

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

While waiting for Crossfire 4 and 5 I needed to continue the Sylvia Day experience. After reading a number of reviews on All Revved Up (short story but sucks you in). I felt it was a good one to start.... I was right. Enjoyed meeting Faith and Miguel and are looking forward to learning more about their past, present, and future together. I have a feeling Miguel's mother has a ton of secrets that we will find out about in Stripped Down.

sweet book about a man with the bright future and the woman from the wrong side of the tracks who loved each other in High School, but she broke it off because she didn't want to hold him back. She believed they wouldn't be able to compromise and would eventually come to hate each other if they stayed together. He returns 11 years later to prove to himself that he is over her, but the sparks fly instantly when they see each other again. After a hot night together, he is determined they will marr ...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

“he knew damn well that no one could possibly love her as completely as he once had. Even the man he was today was incapable of that depth of emotion and connection. She’d killed the innocence in him that had made it possible to love a woman without any thought of self-preservation. He’d been wide open when she cut his heart out and scars had formed, creating a thick shield that he couldn’t get past and no woman could get through.” 1 likes
