I totally enjoyed everything about this story!

Blake and Tayia meet in their early teens as neighbours and it is instant attraction for Tayia and Blake 'puts up' with his new younger friend quite well! They grow up together but not really together.

This is a sweet love story that touches on a sensitive subject brilliantly. It is a fast paced story with great descriptions of both characters and events, including the scenery. I have to admit it sounds like a wonderful place to visit and I had fun v

Blake and Tayia met when she was 12 and he was 14. They may have been young but they still loved each other after a while. However, everything got weird when one day her dad and his mum announced they were getting married, meaning they were now stepsiblings.

Devastated the pair tried to stay away from each other, romantically at least, but with quite a lot of mishaps and misunderstandings, and some stolen moments along the way they eventually get to be together, even if it is in secret. Now 22,

I am once again thoroughly in love with this series and author. Gwendolyn Grace has done it again in this next installment in her Drive Me Wild series. I loved the first 2 and this one definitely does not disappoint.
What woman doesnt remember her first crush? Especially if we get to look at them every day of our lives? That is exactly what happens with Blake and Tayia. 12 yr old Tay knew from the moment she saw the blue eyed, dimpled gorgeous boy across the street. Unfortunately not long after

I was so excited when I found out there was another addition to the Drive Me Wild series by Gwendolyn Grace. I fell in love with the other stories in this series and couldn't wait to read Tayia and Blake's story in Carolina Crush.
Let me just say, Carolina Crush, is so darn good. All of the feels and emotions, waiting to see what was going to happen with Tayia and Blake. Gwendolyn Grace poured her heart and soul into them, making it my favorite.
I also enjoyed being reunited with Jonna and Harle

This is the third book in this series and was worth the wait. This one was as as well written as the other two. Absolutely well written with a great step brother type storyline. But there is something so much more to this story line than just that. Tayia and Blake meet when they are 12 and 14 . They have feelings for each other but never really act on them. But then their parents get together and they end up being step brother and sister and really cant act on their feelings. But years later and ...more

I devoured this book. I enjoyed the whole series but I kind of feel like this one was my favorite. It was worth the wait.

If you haven't read this book or series, I highly recommend you do.

I love Blake and Tayia's story. It's full of love, anguish and fear. Fear to be open. I was so happy with the way their parents responded. I highly recommend this series.

Carolina Crush by Gwendolyn Grace is the third book in her Drive me Wild novella series. This book is a step-brother romance that is quite sweet in it's storyline and doesn't cross any boundaries that shouldn't be crossed.

Tayia has been in love with Blake since she was 12 years old. Nothing changed that fact even as she is done with high school and living in the real world. Not even the marriage of their parents (to each other) dampened the strength of her love, only the appearance of it. Fortun

I just love this series, they're quick reads that you can easily indulge in. Tayia’s love for Blake goes far back, back before there parents got together. If you’ve read the previous books than you’ve see little bits of Tayia and Blake, those did bits are what made me so excited for this book. When I heard that Gwendolyn was releasing this book I might have actually done a giddy little dance. I couldn’t wait.

It was a great sweet read, there’s angst but it’s not too crazy. It’s steamy and perfect

Feels like I've been waiting forever for this next installment of Drive Me Wild. Well Worth The Wait!!!

Blake & Tayia have known each other since they were teens going from neighbours to step-siblings to lovers. They go from trying to ignore their attraction to hiding their relationship for fear of what people will think. Such a sweet story.

I've loved this series from the moment I picked up book 1 & will continue to follow till the very end.

This is the third book in the Drive Me Wild Series and definitely worth the wait. Tayia has been in love with Blake since she can remember and even told him one day she would marry him. Blake lives across the street and his mother help take care of her because her dad worked a lot. One day all of Tayia's dreams are shattered when her dad and Blake's mom announce they are getting married. This ends her dream of marrying Blake but does not turn off her feelings for him. She knows deep down that he

I am mad about books! It all started when my sixth grade teacher Ms. Schwartz read Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls to our class, I looked forward to the time after recess when she would read a chapter or two to us. I've been hooked on books ever since. One day I stumbled upon Goodreads and discovered a world of crazy book junkies just like myself! Since then I've become a blogger, beta re ...more
