Full Speed Ahead
Lennox’s favorite escape is the Food Truck Warriors . . .until it needs his protection.
Ash isn’t running from his past—he’s already left it way behind. He’s built a business from scratch, using all the lessons that his father taught him, and every day at his food truck is a challenge he was born to tackle.
But when a stalker appears, hinting that he knows the secrets As...more
This is definitely my favourite book in what has been a truly wonderful series from Beth.
It's also one of the hottest, oh my lordy once these two get together, it's smoking. It just takes them a wee while because before that, they have to have a whole mess of feelings first!
There is a very clever tension brought to the narrati ...more
(possible mild spoilers)
This one was a total miss and a total mess for me.
To be honest, my gut told me to stop at 50%.
I pushed through because I'd committed myself to a review, but, I'm sorry, by 88% I was screaming for this book to just... END ALREADY! By this time, I couldn't care less about HEAs or if they ever catch the crook (who somehow moved at the speed of light because he was on drugs (??)
(what kind of employer would TELL his staff to use drugs anyway .. ...more
I had worried about Lennox, I have to admit. It turns out that he was a definite ally! He and Ash are great together. The whole community is great together.
The times when communities cross over are always best. This is one of those times!
Just like the previous books in this series, Full Speed Ahead can be read as a standalone. Even though the characters from the ...more
I'd say, at least the first half, is a slow burn as Lennox run from his attraction to Ash having had a secret relationship that ended badly and is not used to being open about himself. Ash is determined though and gives Lennox the time he needs to come around to more happening between them, especially after the sweet kiss they share behind the food truck. They are forced to spend at ...more
Lennox is a stoic man and one who’s difficult to get to know. Ash is intrigued by the closed-off man and dete ...more
Enjoyed this latest edition to the series! This one is an opposite's attract with Ash our Adorable Salad Truck guy and Lennox our big ex Military guy who works in Security. Lennox just cannot seem to stop getting Salads for lunch!!! Go Figure? Ash is happy and more open and Lennox is more closed off and hesitant due to a previously bad relationship experience. These two have a sweet connection with some push and pull due to circumstances and insecurities. We get bo ...more
Lennox is closed off, repressed, sad and kinda lonely. For those reasons he works with Ash who is an utter sweetheart but it took me a long time to warm up to him.
I also had to roll my eyes at the utter stupidity of Ash's actions late on. The drama there felt a little forced.
There's this feeling of potential danger kinda lurking and that affected the romance for me. Still a good read an ...more
I confess that Lennox was never a character that caught my attention but he caught Ash's attention from the start
This was the book with a little mystery since it has a threat to Ash that Lennox will have to solve.
Along with the attraction and a relationship, the book is a surprise to the end
All the characters in the other books appear, especially Tony, always unpredictable
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review
There was a bit of a mystery (and tbh a moment late in the book where Ash suddenly because tstl lol) which always adds fun to a romance for me.
I will definitely read a book featuring Ren.
Also: how about a lesbian food truck? Enbies?
I have thoroughly enjoyed this series, however, this story not as much as the previous books. Like some of the previous reviewers have said, I found it hard to believe in the MCs as lovers. There just wasn't a connection there, as far as I was concerned. I also didn't really understand Ash's motives, the whole mystery thing left me scratching my head somewhat 🤔 The reasoning behind it didn't make sense, not to me anyhoo.
I thought the premise was good, but somehow it didn't pan ou ...more
Lennox and Ash, months of flirting to friends to lovers to having a HEA.
I really enjoyed this read but this should be read as part of the series, not as a stand alone.
Though Lennox's military background made him the perfect man to investigate the vandalism at the lot, his time served also made him cautious and reserved about showing affection publicly. It honestly took me a long time to figure him out, because he alternated between utter confidence in his ability to do his job and ...more
Lennox is the ultimate mystery man. No one knows much about him, especially if Lennox is his first or last name. When an act of vandal ...more
This book is part of one of my favorite series, and it’s a worthy addition to it. I loved seeing the characters from previous books, and the community built around the food lot is beautifully supportive and caring— a true family. Awesome characters, an interesting plot (a stalker, a mystery, a slowly building sense of danger)— there’s a lot to like about this story. My only real issue with the book, and I’m keeping this vague because spoilers are no one’s friend, is that one of the char ...more
That said, something kept me from fully loving this book. I just don't know what it is.
There's plenty of sweetness between Lennox and Ash, including the mutual attraction and cluelessness involved. Lennox's attraction to Ash has had him coming to buy salads for months. But when Ash needs his help, the two finally get a chance to be together.
This is a story with p ...more
I loved the connection between Lennox and Ash at the start as they become friends. Little hints of teasing and flirts as they get to know each other. A bit of trouble at the food truck group and security is ramped up. Lennox was still adjusting from military baggage even after years and was shy to dating.
As the story progresses it focuses on the trouble for Ash and it kinda lost me a bit.
All the guys in the food block are featured ...more
Ash has a salad truck, and Lennox is there all the time, even though he doesn't usually LIKE salads. Must be something that makes him come back for more! In a previous story, someone had graffitied a table on the lot, and things escalate quite a bit on that front. It's like a whodunit, everyone could be a suspect, b ...more
While Lennox has been in a relationship that was painful in th past, he opens up beautifully to his attraction to Ash. Who wouldn't. Ash's got the best personality and values his friends and is totally dedicated to his career. Best ...more
Beth has been writing practically since she learned the alphabet. Unfortunately, her first foray into novel writing, titled Big Bear with Sparkly Earrings, wasn’t a bestse ...more
