Malcolm Wallace once lost the love of his life before he could make her a promise. Now fuelled by guilt and living from one adrenaline rush to the other he surrounds himself with fast car and fast women. He could never allow anyone to get close to him but hes about to meet a girl who could be the greatest thrill of his life.

Paislie Pruitt distrusts men. After all, the one man who was supposed to care for her dropped her off on the steps of an orphanage when she was eight. Somehow she clawed out

Review by Lisa Kane
Paislie Pruitt is fiercely independent. When she was a child, her mom died and her father left her at Saint Patrick's Orphanage.

"Don't cry, Paislie Lynn Pruitt. Pruitt's don't cry. You're almost nine years old, for Christ's sake."

She was bounced around from foster home to foster home and always ended up back at the orphanage. Her mentor was Sister Elizabeth and she nurtured Paislie and felt her feel safe. Paislie has strong spiritual beliefs, but at an early age her lack of

Fast cars and Southern boys. They go hand and hand. And nobody does southern boys like Kelly Elliott.

Paislie goes to church for several reasons. The first is that she was raised in the church orphanage after her father abandoned her there. The second is that her best friend is a nun. The third is that she has a lot to ask forgiveness for. She likes the guys. Sometimes makes bad decisions. But she always regrets those, hence the church visits.

Malcolm is a good old

This book isn't without its flaws -- it's far from perfect but nevertheless, it's a good read (no pun intended). To be honest, I think little Sophie stole the show from the main characters for me.

The Hero and heroine's relationship development is fast-paced, they had an insta-love kind of thing which... annoyed me but I guess it works for them. I loved the drama that happened in the book. They had a lil' separation twice but towards the end I felt like the author dragged the story when she could

Adrenaline is Book2 in the Speed Series, Ignite is book1. You really need to read Book1. This is Malcolm and Paislie's story, yes you read that right. #WhoTheHeckIsPaislie is what you're asking yourself right now, since hopefully you read Ignite. Malcolm is your typical alpha male who does not do commitment what so ever. Something happened in his past that makes him the way he is. Paislie comes out of nowhere, but trust me, it will all make sense and leave you at peace with the situation. This ...more

He has women falling at his feet and has a NASCAR driver he has got the adrenaline to succeed, He knows he can have any girl he wants too without consequences. He doesn't want a steady relationship or so he thought that was until he met Physio therapist Paislie who had it difficult growing up she had got a better life now she was one tough cookie, Great chemistry between these two character's she ...more

A tender and touching romance fueled by angst, Adrenaline makes the heart race and the body ignite as emotions soar around the track at lightning speed. Adrenaline by Kelly Elliott is a riveting and racy romance but so much more. Its a story about defying the odds. Defeating the demons of the past. Learning to trust those feelingsled by the heartthat flow freely, controlling the head and body in every way. Believing in and trusting fate and second chances, true gifts that sometimes only are ...more

I found myself feeling something Id never felt with a man before. Excitement.

There hasnt been a man in twenty-six-year-old Paislie Pruitts life who hasnt walked away from her. Starting with her father who, after her mothers death, dumped her off at an orphanage when she was nine. She doesnt open her heart to men because she knows that, inevitably, shell just be left behind and hurt by them. A physical therapist, who once considered becoming a nun like Sister Elizabeth, the nun who raised her

Once again, Kelly Elliott delivers a phenomenal read!!! Proving yet again why I absolutely love this author!!!!

This book had all the feels..... I cried, was pissed, cheered, laughed, filled with angst! Let me say the hotness level was thru the roof and oh the swoon worthy moments were surprising!!

Malcolm is at the top of his game, he is one of the top and hottest drivers in NASCAR. He loves women, enjoys women...he has his share of women. No emotional ties nothing beyond the physical.

4.5 Adrenaline filled stars!!

I had become addicted. It was as if she was a drug, and I needed a fix every single day.

I swore a long time ago I would never let another man into my heart to hurt me. Then I met you, and everything has been turned upside down. You do things to methings that make me want to give you my very soul.

I cant breathe without you. I need you to know that. Youre everything I need.

Adrenaline is the second book in the speed series and follows the story of Malcolm and Paislie.

A tragic accident struck Malcolm Wallace at an early age of 17. This would set his feelings for the future of ever loving someone else. Malcolm loves fast cars and especially fast women. He loves the adrenalin rush and will find anything to give him that rush. Malcolm needs it in order to live so he can forgot his past.

Paislie Pruitt lost her mum at an early age and at the age of 8 her father dropped her at an orphanage as he no longer could look after her. This would turn Paislie into

It's been a long time since I've read a book by Kelly Elliott, but as soon as I started Adrenaline, I was reintroduced to all the qualities of her writing that I adore - a fiercely independent heroine who has made the most of her life despite an extremely difficult childhood; a sexy, dirty talking hero who has scars of his own and makes mistakes but does what he can do make amends, and a storyline that is steamy, angsty, and at times frustrating due to characters irrational reactions and not ...more

5 Adrenaline Rush Stars

Kelly Elliot has released yet another phenomenal love story, proving over and over why she is an auto buy author for me. Adrenaline is book 2 in the Speed series and focuses on Malcolm and Paisley.

Malcolm Wallace is a rich manwhore, at the top of his game in Nascar. Paisley Pruitt is an independent physical therapist. Neither one is looking for "the one" as they both have issues from the past preventing them from wanting something more.

When these two literally collide into

Malcolm, he likes Fast Cars and Fast women. Not one for relationship, just a good time with a female companion, until he met her.
Paislie, loved her job as a Pyshical Therapist, she doesn't have time for a relationship, she doesn't trust a man with her heart after being left as a young child by her father. Until she meets Him.
When she accidentally runs into a Sexy as Sin Race Car Driver named Malcolm, this starts a chain reaction that will put both of them in each other's path. Malcolm will stop

If you read Ignite, you met Malcom Wallace. An adrenaline junky driven by his need for speed and women. But there's more to Malcom's story than you would expect. He has a past that has left him hurting and turning love away.

"Racing was my life. I needed the rush. I craved it. I had to have it to keep all my other demons away."

When he meets Paisley Malcom is overwhelmed by the instant emotions that overtake him. Paisley helps Malcom recover not just his body but his heart as well.

I honestly don't what to say
I have been a fan of Kelly's since Wanted came out. Her books just get better and better. The last time I swooned this much was over Jeff Johnson. Malcolm is just so Alpha in everything he does. Doesn't matter if it's racing a car or going for the girl he loves, he takes command of the situation and just makes it all go his way. He is just that amazing. At first if Ignite I thought he was an arrogant POS. But is Adrenaline he changed my mind.
Paislie also blew me

Malcolm in book one to me was a jerk and only cared about himself and racing. This story gave us a totally different guy than what I was expecting. His past prohibited him from opening his heart until a beautiful green eyed girl bumped into him and gave him a new adrenaline rush. Paisley (love that name) is a girl who has been let down more times by the men she cared about that she had decided to protect her heart from more heartache. Then she decides to try one more time and well you will just ...more

Id only talked to this man twice and yet each time he brought out emotions Id never before experienced in my life. I wasnt sure if I should be thrilled beyond belief, or scared shitless.

Even though I havent read the first novel in the Speed series, Ignite, I wanted to read Adrenaline as my first Kelly

Though I liked them both, I enjoyed book 2 better than 1!
There was something different about Paislie and Malcolm. Whether it be that they both were actually damaged and they had their own qualms and hurdles to overcome with that or that both were not interested in love but found it anyways!
I loved this book and how well paced it was. I dont feel like there was any aspect that was rushed or skipped.
It was also a treat to get updates about Addie and Elliott without feeling like the story revolved

No cliffhanger
Standalone, though part of a larger series
Told from both POVs
No major editing errors

I have read every book by this author and somehow she makes them all not seem like the same ole story. This series in particular has been fun to read. These guys love adrenaline and the feeling they get being behind the wheel of a car going a million miles and hour, but somehow it is the women in their life that knock them on their a**es.

Malcolm is a no nonsense, not looking for love manwhore.

It's not until he needing rehabilitation for his injuries, Paislie not only helps heal his injury but also breaks down his barriers. But will their love survive her abandonment issues?

What a Rush!

I can never get enough of Kelly's work! You can't go wrong by picking anything of hers! She is one of my faves! And I LOVED Malcolm and Paisley! They come from different backgrounds but sometimes opposites attract! They are perfect together even though they have their twists and turns! (I secretly hope she writes a book about Landon and Emmerson...you'll know what I'm talking about when you get to the end 😉)
