We are really enjoying this author's stories and I have to say we really enjoyed her Nitro Crew Series.The series itself was pure enjoyment and brought us tons of laughs.

One thing we are loving about this series is its character's and I have to say that we have never really read any sport romance reads before so this was a refreshing change we really enjoyed.

I loved both of the main character's Frankie and Brooks. Frankie was a hoot she made me laugh time and time again .This girl was a tell it

Oh my...this book was so much fun to read. Brooks and Frankie were a riot! It had a bit of everything in this book, drama, emotion and humour. This couple is explosive from the firsts page to the last. I read it in one sitting couldn’t put it down.
Despite the humour in this book there was a serious side to the it and dealing with health issues such as these is never easy, my heart hurt for Brooks, his father was such a di##. His mom was lovely despite everything that had happened. It was awesome

Frankie and Brooks🔧🚗

I am loving this series! Winter Travers really thinks outside the box when she creates these series. Her writing style keeps me coming back for more. Frankie was a smart take no shit car chief for Cummings racing. Brooks is the funny car driver for his namesake Cummings racing. Brooks and Frankie's relationship is a slow burning, opposites attract in the best way! I really enjoyed reading their story unfold. I highly recommend this book!!!

I liked this book and how the characters grew together. Great story and strong characters with the secondary characters adding a little spice in just the right spots.

Holeshot was the second book in the Nitro Crew series by Winter Travers.

Frankie Jensen was raised by her brothers after her parents died (Skid Row Kings series). She grew up around cars and street racing and knew her way around car mechanics. She was currently the Car Chief for Brooks Cummings Racing. She was feisty, short tempered, had no filter, and had enough of being ignored because she was a woman.

Brooks Cummings was on the NHRA Racing circuit and had huge shoes to fill from when his father

I love Frankie... there I said it. She is fiercely independent, a wildcat and sexy as hell.
I love that she keeps Brooks on his toes, not letting him flash his sexy smile to get what he wants.. which is her under His car and under his body. The seriously intense connection between then is off the charts, the banter is perfect for them.
The slow burn relationship was nice to see, rather than the hot jump into bed and figure things out later.
You get to see their relationship grow, as reboots fly a

5 HOLESHOT STARS!! This book has shot into one of my favorite books ever. I loved Frankie and Brooks story with all the banter, chemistry, sexy times and love for family. Winter Travers is one of my favorite authors, she always writes the perfect stories at the perfect time. This is the second book in the Nitro Crew series and you definitely need to read this book.

I have been waiting for this book… Frankie… She is my hero. She is one of those women who can back up everything she says and doesn’t take any crap from anyone. I loved her. This book was amazing.

Frankie works in a real man’s world and its like she has to prove herself every day. And the final straw is that the driver of the car she works on doesn’t even know her name, so maybe it was a bit much throwing a wrench at him. Getting suspended not on her list, so she quits.

This is book two in the Nitro Crew series. I loved it. It also picks up right where the first book left off. I loved the sassy and very blunt Frankie. She was awesome. I loved her in book one Burndown. So after reading that and finding out she was next, I couldn't wait to hear her side of things.

Frankie is the main reason Brooks Cummings car wins on the track. She knows her cars., Grew up around them. After being raised by her three brothers after parents died has made her hard and but when she

Brooks Did a Burnout on My Heart!!

I’ve been looking forward to seeing what type of woman Frankie was going to grow into since I read Downshift (Skid Row Kings, book 1). We saw Frankie as a teenager full of sass and I just knew she would grow into her sassiness even more as she aged and gained experience--she had the Jensen boys as siblings, after all. We saw her feistiness in Burndown when she chucked a wrench at her boss, Brooks. We knew it was going to be smoking hot from the chemistry betwee

Knowing he needs Frankie back, he knew he took her for granted, but he needed her and was going to convince her.
Frankie’s brothers don’t understand why she quit after she got suspended for throwing a wrench at Brooks, but it was the no recognition that she can’t go back to. Ignoring phone calls from Brooks, she’s surprised when she turns around to find him in the shop.
She hates Brooks he never recognised any of the work she did and recognised everyone else, she was never going back, until she re

If you haven't read Burndown, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?! Go read it. If you haven't read any of Winter others book, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?! In the Nitro Crew book one you have Remy who is Megs son, and she is from Loving Lo. In this beautifully written book you have Frankie who is the sister of the Jensen boys. See you need to catch up on your Winter roads.
Frankie is an unbelievable pit crew chief she also is invisible to Brooks. She has had enough and won't answer his calls. She is worth mor

Holeshot is a another hit for Winter Travers. If you read Skid Row Kings series by Travers then you know Frankie, little sista to Mitch, Luke and Kurt. Frankie finally gets her own book with a sexy alpha Male and a HEA.

Book two of Nitro Crew starts where book one ended. Brooks Cummings is the hot new racer on the drag circuit, he is also Frankie's boss and he is a total jerk..well least he starts out as one. Frankie is a sassy, feisty, sexy and beautiful character who will put Brooks in his pla

I loved the first book in the Nitro Crew series, but Holeshot was another level of love. First of all, there's a very feisty heroine, named Frankie Jensen, who is a genius at making Brooks Cummings', the hero, car run fast enough to win races. However, she does seem to have a slight temper, as this story started up after she had been suspended for throwing a wrench at him, then her ultimately quitting. Since she quit, she found herself staying with one of her brothers while trying to find a new ...more

Holeshot is book two in the Nitro Crew series by Winter Travers. I have been reading this author's work from the very beginning, and the stories just get better and better. With each new book there is exciting new characters, new storylines, attention grabbing sexiness, and lots of heart.

The friction and tension between Frankie and Brooks was evident in Burnout, and reached fever pitch in Holeshot. Both possessed magnetic personalities and charisma just oozed from Brooks. Although prickly and a

Holeshot is Frankie (she is the sister of the men from the Skid Row Kings series) and Brooks' story. Brooks Cummings is the team owner and driver but he's also unfortunately a bit of an ass. After he ignores/dismisses Frankie and her work one too many times she throws a wrench at his head and gets suspended. Not one to admit she did anything wrong, she quits, but it only takes the first race after her departure for everyone involved in the team to realise just how vita

I have been waiting for Frankie's story ever since I read about her in Remy's book....and it was so worth the wait!!!! She is a feisty take no prisoners type of girl. She will stand up and fight for what is right even if its the person who signs her paychecks. Brooks quickly realizes that he needs Frankie back to work so he travels to her home town to beg her to come back. He will do whatever it takes to have Frankie back even if that means sending her a plane ticket and towing her car. Now that ...more

Growing up with three brothers and the fact they own a garage has resulted in Frankie’s love of cars and racing. She has worked her way up through Cummings Racing but she is tired of being unappreciated just because she is a woman. Things come to a head when she throws a wrench at Brooks and instead of taking the suspension that they were going to give her she quits.

Brooks races cars for a living and is very successful with the ladies. He feels like he is living in his dad’s shadow and others in

O.M.F.G. Winter you just completely slayed me. I freaking loved this book so much. The banter, sexual tension, irritation, determination, the chemistry, the sweetness, the many things that these two characters showed had me flipping these pages one right after the other. I always know that I'm going to absolutely love Winter's books but you never know. Rest assured that Winter once again delivered a book that is addicting from the first page.

Frankie has worked hard to get to where she is professionally. Working as a car chief for The Cummings Racing team is a dream come true and nobody works as hard or gives as much as Frankie does. So when boss’ son and racing driver Brooks Cummings doesn’t even acknowledge her or the hard work she’s done, it’s time for Frankie to say enough is enough and quit the job she loves. I loved Frankie in Burndown but this book gives a better insight into the real Frankie and it only made me lov

I really liked HOLESHOT. The dialogue between the characters kept me very entertained. There were some slow spots in the book, but I don’t feel that they impacted my experience while reading.

I have been not so patiently waiting for Frankie’s book, and I can say that I really did enjoy it, but there were times that I really didn’t like Frankie. Yes, she had to put up with a lot given the profession that she worked in as it is typically a man’s world. But, her character was a lot more negative th

I was looking forward to this book. I love Winter Traverse and her Skid Row Kings books which is where we first met Frankie as a teenager.
Frankie on the outside seems brash, brassy, sassy, antagonistic but under it all she has a heart of gold.
Brooks is a man who knows what he wants and how to get it. He and Frankie have serious foreplay. Who doesn't want a wrench thrown at the

I want to be Frankie!

Holeshot picks up where Burndown finished. Frankie has had enough, she has worked so darn hard to get where she is and is sick of not getting the recognition she so deserves. She doesn't want a fuss, just a simple Thank You and for the driver to actually know her name. That isn't asking for much is it?!!
So after losing her cool and launching a wrench at the owner/driver of Cummings Racing she retreats home to lick her proverbial wounds. But Brooks isn't letting her go that
