Review Tour: Adrenaline by Kelly Elliott

Malcolm Wallace lived for the adrenaline rush. If he wasn’t living life on the edge, he wasn’t living. He had no time for relationships, let alone love.
When one event changes Malcolm’s entire future, he must turn to the one person who makes him doubt his entire philosophy on life.
Paislie Pruitt.
She’s beautiful.
She’s strong.
She’s the one rush Malcolm never saw coming.

I pulled Black Jack to a stop as I looked out over the hill country. There was nothing like being back at home in Texas and on the ranch. No early morning strategizing meetings with Dalton. No pressure from the sponsors to be on my A game. Nothing to worry about at all.

Just nature.

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 trust in men leads to her looking for sex for pleasure's sake encounters. These are safer in the long run-no man will hurt her like her father's abandonment did. Of course as she got older, went to college and became a physical therapist; her father regularly got in contact with her to hit her up for money. 

Malcolm Wallace is one of NASCAR's most skilled drivers. Now that his once nemesis/now good friend, Emmit Lewis is retired the field is open wide for him. Racing and the adrenaline rush it brings with it, is his fuel. When he was in high school, his girlfriend Casey wanted him to promise to love only her. She was killed in front of him and he never had a chance to answer her. 

"This is not happening. Casey, please don't leave me! Baby, please don't do this to me. I'm so sorry!" I shouted as a paramedic rushed over to me.

He has lived a life of meaningless sex; believing he deserves only that. He holds a lot of guilt over her death and it still holds him back from anything more. His most recent hook ups have been with Ashley, Emmit's sister. (of course Emmit has no idea about the two of them) 

"This is the life I want, Ash. I don't want to be tied down to one girl. Besides, I'm incapable of loving anyone."

Paislie's been seeing Trey, a football player for a few weeks. Although the sex is okay, she thinks he's hiding something from her. At a NASCAR race she becomes convinced she is his dirty little secret and he has a girl stashed somewhere. She ends up literally bumping into Malcolm and there is an instant connection between them. Once he finds out that she isn't with Trey anymore he pursues her. 

Both have issues but both know this thing between them is different than what either of them has had previously. But of course like any good race this one is going to be full of jump starts, breaks, full throttle action and twists and turns. Since it's told in both POV's I loved reading how each of them can take away a totally different impression of the same situation. Both of their insecurities make them revert to acting like love sick high schoolers. But they have good friends giving them great advice. Will these two ever cross the finish line and find their HEA? 

"I haven't slept with many men, but more than I should have at my age. I often wonder if I'm even capable of loving someone. If I let my heart open up to them, I have a fear they're going to leave me like my father did."

As much as I enjoyed Malcolm and Paislie's story, two minor characters; Father Tim and Sister Elizabeth intrigued me. As unconventional as a love story between two members of the church is, there remains a mystery there. I would love to read about it-I need to know if what I think is between them develops into something more. 

"You have my stomach in knots and half the time I don't know whether I'm coming or going, Paislie. This is all so new to me...these feelings." 

“W-where are we going?” she asked as she glanced over her shoulder.
Opening the laundry room door, I pulled her in and pushed her against the wall.
“I need to feel you, Paislie … taste you.”
Each breath was forced as the rush grew bigger. I’d been waiting for so long for this moment.
My hand slid up her dress and moved softly along her thigh where I brushed my knuckles across the thin lace material. Son-of-a-bitch. My cock was throbbing I wanted her so badly.
My fingers pushed the material to the side as Paislie lifted her leg, allowing me better access.
I slipped two fingers in and moaned as my dick hardened painfully more. “Fucking hell. You’re soaking wet.”
Her head dropped back as she whispered, “Please. Malcolm, I’ve waited so long for you.”
My lips moved along her neck, placing soft kisses as I slowly moved my fingers in and out of her. Sliding another one in, I moved faster. “Yes,” she hissed as she pumped her hips. I didn’t want her coming yet. The first time she came, it was either going to be on my cock or my tongue.
Pulling my fingers from her, Paislie let out a whimper. I lifted her up and set her on the counter. It was going to kill my leg, but I needed to taste her.
“Lay back, Paislie. I want to taste you … now.”
Her eyes widened with delight as she smiled and laid back. I lifted her beautiful gown and moaned when I saw the garter and panties.
“Jesus, you’re perfect,” I moaned as I pushed her panties out of the way and licked up her pussy. Paislie gasped and grabbed onto my hair.
“Oh … dear … God,” she panted.
I’ve given plenty of women oral sex, but this was different. So very different. Paislie tasted sweet, addictive, like a drug. I instantly craved more as I licked and sucked her more. Her body quivered and I knew she was close. All I would need to do is concentrate on her clit and push my fingers in.
The knock on the door had us both freezing. Paislie lifted her head as we looked at one another. She shook her head and mouthed, Are you fucking kidding me?

Kelly Elliott is married to a wonderful Texas cowboy who has a knack for making her laugh almost daily and supports her crazy ideas and dreams for some unknown reason...he claims it's because he loves her!
She’s also a mom to an amazing daughter who is constantly asking for something to eat while her fingers move like mad on her cell phone sending out what is sure to be another very important text message.
In her spare time she loves to sit in her small corner overlooking the Texas hill country and write.
One of her favorite things to do is go for hikes around her property with Gus....her chocolate lab and the other man in her life, and Rose, her golden retriever. When Kelly is not outside helping the hubby haul brush, move rocks or whatever fun chore he has in store for her that day, you’ll find her inside reading, writing or watching HGTV.

There were two things Emmit Lewis loved.
Racing cars and Adaline Morgan.
Time was stolen from the two young lovers and Emmit vowed never again would he allow anything to come between the two of them.
Blurred lines both on and off the track have Emmit being tested beyond his limits. Will he reach the checkered flag and ignite Adaline’s heart, or will he be black-flagged and lose everything he has ever dreamed of?
