DeHart has a history—and secrets. His classic car garage is a front for an FBI
operation. His current mission: get some evidence from a drug dealer’s ex-wife,
then get out. Madison Haughton sending his engine into overdrive isn’t part of
the plan, though, especially considering she might not be as innocent as Aiden
her divorce from her sleazeball ex, Madison has sworn off bad boys, gotten some
sweet tattoos, and become a star of Miami’s roller derby scene. But however
fast she skates, her ex is always on her tail. When the sexy guy in the muscle
car offers to help, he could be her ticket to safety—or a detour down a deadly
After some trouble in Aiden DeHart’s past he has turned his classic car garage into a front for a FBI
undercover operation. Aiden has gotten in with a drug dealer and been hired to obtain an external hard drive from the dealer’s ex-wife, Madison Haughton. Aiden’s plans are to obtain the hard drive and bust the boss of the man that hired him.
Madison never let herself admit just what her ex-husband did to make his money. When she found out what he was into she divorced him and started her life over. When the two fought during the divorce she stole some of his property not knowing that it would put her in danger. When Aiden offers to help she’s a bit worried about letting this new bad boy into her life but doesn’t know of any other way to get rid of her ex and finds herself trusting Aiden.
Drive is the first book in the new Hot Rides series by Sidney Bristol and it starts the series off in style, hot cars, hot characters and an intense plot, what more could a reader want? I could really see this book being made into a movie for the big screen from the very first few pages that I read.
The action was intense between Aiden and his crew and the drug dealers and gangs involved which kept the pages turning to see how it would all work out in the end. I did have a few moments that I just wanted to smack Madison for being so naive during a few scenes but overall I did enjoy the characters and romance, also a good job on the steamier scenes with Madison and Aiden, not too rushed and a good way to show how the attraction turned into something more.
Overall, great start to this new series and will look forward to reading more about the rest of Aiden’s crew in the future.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
