Of the back story allowing us to catch up I do wish I had read the books in order as I feel I would ve enjoyed this one and felt connected to the characters All in all I still found it to be an enjoyable story though I may have continually felt like I was behind in the story as I didn t have the history from book one in my memory I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review I really enjoyed this one It started out a bit slow for me but once the action got started I couldn t ut it down I love the Hot Rides crew and Tori and Roni were great in this story Then there is the yummy computer geek Emery sigh Tori always knew that her The Walking Dead Live! past could catch up with her one day but why now Life is good and running just doesn t feel right but a Russian hit suad has arrived in Miami and the only hope Tori and Roni have lays in the hands of Emery Who knew the computer tech had all that muscle and brawn hidden behind those clothes As the action heats up so does the chemistry between Tori and Emery and Emery is determined to do everything he can to keep Tori and her sister safeThis is an actionacked story that you don t want to miss I sister safeThis is an action acked story that you don t want to miss I it Shift is the second book in the Hot Rides series by Sidney Bristol The first book in the series Drive centered around the couple Aiden and Madison and introduced readers to this group that works out of a classic car garage that is a front for an FBI operation Shift now icks up the story a couple months after the end of the first *book and centers around tori and emery so * and centers around Tori and Emery so if you haven t read the first in the series this one would read find as a standalone novel Tori Chazov works as a mechanic in the garage that is a front for this FBI operation and Emery Martin is the tech genius for the group Tori and Emery have a bit of chemistry between this somewhat mismatched couple but then they end up working together when it s found out that there is a vicious Russian hit suad is on the way to Miami to take Tori out for good I actually did read Drive and rather enjoyed that book You have a high speed romantic suspense novel that was completely action acked with a rather fun couple However with Shift I found that while the action still appeared in the story it got off to a rather slow start for me I d say with this installment of the series I just never fully connected because I really couldn t get myself attached to the romance between Tori and Emery I liked Tori well enough with her toughness in the first book and also in this one but Emery just really didn t appeal to me as much as a character The start of the story it seemed he was barely one step above a cave man with his one word or even no response at all during times Tori interacted with him Not much of a turn on in my opinionOverall I d rate this second book of the series 25 stars unfortunately Not as big of a fan of the romance in this one Still full of action and hot rides though so I d robably continue on the series I received an advance copy from the ublisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewFor reviews lease visit DISCLAIMER I RECEIVED AN E ARC FROM THE PUBLISHER THROUGH NET GALLEY IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW RECEIPT OF THIS BOOK IN THIS MANNER DOES NOT AFFECT MY OPINION OF THE BOOK OR THE CONTENT OF MY REVIEWAfter the slow disaster of the first book in the series which was read very close to this one for clarity.
