Mack King could be my baby daddy any day of the week. There's just something about a bad boy who wants to be a good man that just strokes every button that I have. :) I liked this book better than the previous one because I liked the characters more. Jonna is much more likable than Harley so that made me like this one better. Mack is just, daaaaayum, I don't even know. I guess it's the whole Alpha male, I'll protect you, you're mine thing that he sends out that just made me need to change my pan ...more

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 thou

Given an ARC for an honest review. Gwendolyn Grace had us ride out a storm in Carolina Hurricane. She has now taken us from 0 to 100 in 4.5 secs. Mack King is one hot alpha that is trying to make things right in his life. Jonna is a young woman that wants the man. What they didn't expect was the fuel that ignited the fire. King needed to get things together in his life and didn't want to pull Jonna into danger. All characters from Carolina Hurricane make an appearance and they do no disappoint. ...more

At the start of this second book, we get to see Harley and Mack's story on how they met from his point of view. It was interesting to see Harley's smart mouth right off the bat and what drew Mack to her. Current day, enter Jonna barreling down a dark road and Mack standing in the middle of the road, drunk. Life gets more interesting when Mack starts hallucinating about fireflies and then Jonna takes off after someone else comes to Mack's rescue. When do they run into each other again? What happe ...more

I received this novella for an honest review. I absolutely LOVED Mack King and this entire story. I love the bad boy in Mack. I love that he has his nickname "firefly" for Jonna and calls her it throughout this novella. I love racing and cars so I'm a little partial to this type of book and Gwendolyn Grace hit it out of the park for me.

Carolina King by Gwendolyn Grace is the second novel in her Drive Me Wild series. Continuing in the world of illegal street racing, this story focuses on Mack and Jonna. Mack is the a$$hat ex of Harley and Jonna is the sister of Fox. We met Harley and Fox in Carolina Hurricane.

This story is well-paced, slightly heartbreaking, and really very good. I'm fast becoming addicted to this authors work.

Mack wasn't the greatest when I met him reading book one, but we get so much more of his back story an

This is the second book in this amazing series. This one is just as well written has the first one and just has enjoyable. This one has a little more of a story line as it deals with more intense feelings and emotions. This one is about Mack the wild racer who is dealing with finding out that the girl he was with for on and off 5 years has completely left him this time for a rival racer.

I loved the first book in this series, but I think I loved this one a little more! In the first book we meet Mack and he's made out to be the bad guy a little bit. You definitely don't feel sorry for him when you meet him, but in this book we get to learn a lot more about Mack and I really ended up liking him a lot! The female lead in this book we meet in the first book as well, Jonna, is Fox and Wood's little sister. Jonna has had an infatuation with Mack for about 6 years. She knows all there ...more

Favorite Quotes:

“A few months later Uncle Eddie went to prison, and since most of the men in my family, including my father, were there already it was sort of like a little family reunion.”

“There was no way I’d be able to sit next to him though. My mind lost all rational thought and allowed my body to do the thinking when it came to him.”

“It was like being surrounded in quicksand. The more my head struggled to flee, the deeper it settled in.”

WOW! Another grand slam for Gwendolyn Grace! I freakin LOVED LOVED LOVED Carolina King!

Jonna Fox has been obsessed with Mack King for a while, and it didn't matter that he was her brother's rival. No matter what people said, she believes there's good in him. Mack and his brother grew up with an alcoholic father who ended up going to prison. That left his mother working 2 jobs to keep food on the table. The boys started doing what ever it took to make ends meet early on. Now he's been the king of

Jonna Fox was a girl who doesn't take BS from anybody, and I loved that about her. She's the type of girl I would love to be best friends with. She is blunt, honest, a

I was given an ARC of this book for an honest review. I love this series. This is book 2 and I recommend reading Carolina Hurricane (Drive Me Wild Book 1) first. This about story is Jonna and Mack’s. The first time Jonna sees Mack, she starts crushing on him, but he doesn't know she exists. I mean, he is Mack King, undisputed King of the underground racing circuit and she is just Jonna Fox, younger sister to Mack’s biggest rival.

**I received an ARC for an honest review.**

I loved this book more than the first one. I absolutely hated Mack in book one but he really did redeem himself in this book of the Drive Me Wild series.

I met Jonna in book one and I knew that she was Drew and Woody's sister. I knew she was fiesty and a bit of a spitfire but I didn't know how much. I liked how she was with Mack right off the bat and I liked how she pushed to get to know him when she thought he was pushing her away.

I really enjoyed Book One in this series and Book 2 was even better.

With a lot more action, a bit more story and some very good sexy time scenes, Carolina King is the story of Mack and Jonna. Gwendolyn, took everything that was good from the last book, and wrote it just that little bit better this time.

I really liked Jonna. She may be young, and overprotected by her parents and brothers, but none of that made her a prissy little princess with the attitude to go with it. She was a strong, confid

ARC Copy received by the Author in exchange of honest review.

When I read Carolina Hurricane I thought that Mack was a Bad guy who cheated on Harley and doesn't care much about anything except his title but after reading Carolina King I realized How Wrong I was.

This book shows the story of Mack and his real self that he keeps hidden under his facade or mask to the world. He is surrounded by the Darkness of the mistake that he made in his past. But Jonna brings happiness and light in his life. She

This is the second book in the Drive Me Wild Series by Gwendolyn Grace. I was not really sure about reading this book because it is Mack's story and from what we know about him in the first book were not all good things. Mack seemed to thing he owned street racing and was the King in the first book. But in this book we get to see a different side of him. Joanna Fox is his biggest rivals sister and is off limits. But there is just something about Joanna that makes him forget about everything else ...more

Can I have more Mack King, please?

I was a huge fan of Drew and Harley in the first book of the Drive me Wild series, but I am totally in love with Mack and Jonna in the second book, Carolina King. Mack King so darn sexy and he's got that bit of mystery to him that I absolutely love. Bad boy, maybe, maybe not?

He's the type your mother warned you about, but why is he so irresistible? You'll have to read to find out, but Jonna is one lucky lady and I'm glad the author created her character to be c

Going into this book I was a little unsure of Mack. In book one he wasn’t very promising. He’s a bad boy and he didn’t seem to care all that much about Harley. He was still a bit intriguing. In this book you’ll discover who Mack is he’s still very much a bad boy….he’s a HOT-sweet-Alpha male-badass-racer. He is perfect for the moody and opinionated Jonna.

This book is a great addition to this series. Gwendolyn’s writing is always superb you’ll never be disappointed with any of her books, and the

This was a great book in addition to the Carolina King series. I really loved reading about Mack in this one. He was totally a alpha bad boy in this one.

This book will hook you on the first page.

The story is about Mack and Jonna. He is your typical handsome bad boy. She is a young lady who sees what she wants and goes after it. The story involves lots of romance and some mystery.The book also involves back roads rac

Mack King has made mistakes in his life. Many that he is not proud of and now he is trying to claw his way out of the hole. Enter Jonna, she knows everything important about Mack or at least she thought she did. Her brothers aren't happy with Jonna sniffing around Mack. They know he is scum, but can Mack and Jonna prove them wrong?

Mack grew on me in this book. I felt like he was more than just an arrogant racer. He had a checkered past and didn't want that any more. His love for Jonna amazed me.

I enjoy reading Gwendolyn Grace’s work. I read the first book Carolina Hurricane. It isn’t vital that you read it but it gives you some background. Gwendolyn puts a wicked twist in this story that made me sit up and say WTF.

Mack is “King” of racing. His alpha-ness brings lots of attention from the girls. But he has eyes for Jonna.
Jonna has been crushing on Mack for a long time. Problem is, her brother, is Macks main rival. The story plays out beautifully.

This book was extremely action-packed and sucked me in at the first page. I love books that involve men with interesting backgrounds, such as street racing. I've always found that those things add to the story and make the book more of an escape. it's like the first book in the series in that the character development and personality make you want to know more about the people involved and how they interact. This book is a must read for anyone who loves romance.

Wow wow wow. Mack is one heck of a man. He can swoop me up any day. Mack is a secretive man. He got knocked on his butt by a mystery girl. Jonna is a spunky girl that goes for what she wants. She had a wild night at the races and ended up in Macks arms. Mack realized she was his firefly. Jonnas family was not happy at first with her decisions. She and Harley have become really close and she gave her some great advice but will she take her advice?
