I don't know if you've ever seen the movie "Speed" with Keanu Reeves but I remember how I felt when I watched it. There was this pretty decent action packed plot and the romance between Keanu and Sandra Bullock was the afterthought. That's what I felt with this book. Aiden had his moments but the connection with Madison seemed almost exclusively circumstantial. The action was ok but the relationship doesn't really move at the same pace and is left lagging. To be frank, the story was firmly entre ...more

Boy of boy am I happy I stuck with this read. It starts off so slow that I was seriously considering skipping through it. At about 30% in, needless to say, I was REALLY hoping that “something” was going to happen to pull me in. I wasn’t disappointed!
Fast cars, Roller Derby, Bad Boys and even some good ones, what more could you ask for?

Aiden is working for the FBI, but not as an agent. He’s been hired as a contractor so that the FBI can use his car garage as a front. What s

Fast paced with a rush

Who doesn't love fast American made muscle cars, hot males, damsels in distress, dangerous situations, clandestine groups working with the FBI, and local cops. Loved the story.

Woohoo! This reminded me of Fast and the Furious. I'm a huge fan of that movie series. And for me to get that in book form was A-MA-ZING.

This is the story of Aiden and Madison. Aiden's classic car shop fronts an FBI operation that is trying to stop a drug dealer in the Miami area. He's tasked with getting some info from Madison, who is the ex-wife of the dealer's side kick. There was a lot of action involving car racing and shoot outs. I LOVED IT!

This one has a lot going on and starts out a bit sluggish but I'm definitely glad I stuck with it. There is a ton of action with fast cars, roller derby,and undercover FBI operations but there is also a great romance between Aiden and Madison. This one looks like a great start to what could be a great series. Can't wait to read the next one.

This is one I definitely recommend.

Talk about a hot and steamy new take on an FBI agent! The hero’s classic car garage is a front for an FBI operation (a plot twist that I loved because I’m crazy for classic cars). The hero has to conceal his real identity, keep his other secrets carefully hidden, and try not to fall for the heroine as he works his mission. This book is a fast, burning hot read, and I can’t wait to enjoy more titles in this series. —Cynthia Eden (https://www.bookish.com/articles/fbi-...)

Aiden is hot on the heels of a local drug kingpin, the man responsible for the death of his sister and her husband and the authorities are also i

I know when I jump into a book by Sidney Bristol that I’m in for a ride… and Drive did not fail to deliver! Although it starts out slowly, developing the backstory and introducing the characters, soon we find the fast cars, fast deals and some smexy times heat up your metaphorical reading engine as you speed to the end.

Aiden owns a classic car shop in Miami, but he also has a sideline: fronting for the FBI. Currently a drug ring is their focus, and Aiden is the man to get information from the d

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

The first in a new series, this is a really good read. It is packed full of action, and intrigue, baddies and goodies, and a very sweet romance too!

It is a long book, with plenty going on, so definitely a good value read. There are so many good extras, that I don't really know where to start - from classic cars, to roller derby and running an airport to living on a boat in a marina. It touches on some interesting and top

ARC given by publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I ended up really enjoying this book, the author herself is new to me and honestly I really didn't know what to expect, but was so intrigued by the synopsis of the story I took a chance and requested it, and am really glad I did.

Although I did find the story a little slow to start, (was expecting a bit of action from the outset) but instead it was more of a slow burn that exploded into action during the second half of the boo

This review was originally posted on Bookish Things & MoreDrive is the perfect read to get ready for Summer. It's hot, steamy, and will have you flipping the pages.

Aiden and Madison definitely have chemistry. They can't seem to be around each other without the sparks flying. The story will draw you in, and keep you interested. Between the Aiden, Madison, and the cast of friends they have, there's never a dull moment.

I loved that there is racing and roller derby. I've never been to a derby,

This book starts out really slow but as the story progresses you start really getting intrigued. Who can you trust Madison has changed her life so much you can only feel for her with the mistakes she made. Aiden is a really amazing man the things he does to protect the innocent. I'm very excited about this series I found it kept my mind occupied wondering who these people were. I received this as an Arc from netgalley and the publisher for an honest review.

Bristol wrote an action packed book in her new Hot Rides series. Madison appeared to be as tough as nails women who plays roller derby. Aiden had me fast and furious excited especially with the car racing descriptions. Madison and Aiden together was a winning combination.

I enjoyed Drive, and I liked that it sort of has a Fast and Furious feel because I like those movies, so I was on board for all the car talk. I almost gave this a 4 rating, but I felt the characters were a bit confusing, and I would have liked them to be fleshed out a bit more. I loved that Madison was part of the roller derby! And she has a really kick-ass moment, that was awesome! Unfortunately, she usually put herself in bad situations by making some bad decisions, so I was going back and for ...more

3.5 STARS

As much as I love men in uniform, undercover operations do draw out the sexy guys. It's all about control: making sure you say the right words and act a certain way. Once your cover's blown, you might not live to see another day. There is always the thrill of trying not to get caught and if you like the thrill of getting caught up in a book, you'll love this one. It's filled with fast cars, bad guys, a whole lot of action (sexy times and shoot outs). You wouldn't expect love to fall int

Working undercover for the FBI there were a number of things that Aiden DeHart had done but falling for a girl that he was helping to investigate wasn’t one of them, until now.

Madison Haughton knew that her ex-husband wasn’t a perfect man when she married him but she fell for the bad boy that ravished her with expensive gifts and a nice house. She was happy to play the perfect homemaker until it became obvious that the things that he was into were a lot worse than she had ever ima

If there's one thing Aiden DeHart wants it's retribution for the murders of two people he loved. Working for the FBI, he's tasked with getting evidence to bring down a very dangerous man. Except the woman he needs to get the evidence from might be just as dangerous, if he's not careful. Because the danger isn't to his life, it's to his heart.

Madison Haughton hasn't had the easiest of times since her divorce. Her drug dealing ex-husband keeps sending his goons around to harass her because he des

She works part-time at her friend's father's airline shipping business and part-time waitressing at the roller derby drive-in.

4.5 easily

I love Sydney Bristol she always has a well written story and sympathetic characters. I love cars, I know almost nothing about the internal workings of cars but I love cars. This is like Fast and the Furious (really the second one) and Sydney does a fabulous job writing the action both with the cars and with roller derby. Sydney use to do roller derby herself so the action sequence for the bout was worded so well I could easily picture it in my head. Madison is a great chara
