5* #Review #Giveaway Drift Heat by @adrianrhale @InkSlingerPR

Drift Heat Synopsis:
I didn't want to only be known as the pretty, blonde daughter of a famous race car driver. I wanted to make a name for myself and I wasn't going to let anyone get in my way. So when I saw the opportunity of a lifetime, I jumped. Being the face of the hottest new racing team in the business was a dream come true.
Until he showed up.
Griffin McGregor. Bad boy star driver. On the track, he's gold. Off the track? He's everything my daddy ever warned me about. Infuriatingly egotistical, explosive temper, argumentative know-it-all...why does he have to be so freaking hot?
It'll be a miracle if we can get this team to the championship title without killing each other. Or worse. Because the last thing I'm going to do is wreck my career by jumping in bed with a race car driver.

Review: 5 drifting, smoking stars!!

Whoa!! Adrian Hale has written a hot, romance that will have you fanning yourself while you read this one. I love how Adrian used scenes in the book for her romance that was not your typical sexual scenes. Her use of descriptive words left me open mouthed and wondering how she could do it. This story is hot and very unique!!

Shelby is a young lady that has been around the racing scene all her life. Her dad is a famous racer, but has had little time for Shelby. Everything she learned was from someone else. Shelby is trying to get away from her dad's business to make a name for herself without relying on his reputation. When Shelby sees an opportunity at Smoke and Mirrors, she jumps on it. Even if it is just their show girl and to help in their promotional department. Shelby takes her job seriously and even though Griffin is the only one on the team to give her a hard time when he meets her, she stands her ground to him. She is not some girls that has no clue about cars and will stand by and let Griffin talk to her like he does. I love that Shelby could hold her own and that she was not afraid to speak her mind. I also loved that she was a girl that could drift and knew just abut everything that the guys did about cars. Wyatt was so nice to Shelby and helped her get to know everyone on the team better. Wyatt also helped her when Griffin was being his usual self and talking bad to Shelby. I thought it was neat how Wyatt and Shelby had that instant connection. Once the guys figured out who Shelby was, and who her father was, they treated her a little differently, of course.

Griffin's character is stubborn and rude. There were times in the story where I really did not like him and then there were times when I really liked him. I was wondering if Griffin would ever come around and treat Shelby with a little more respect than he did at their first meeting, and I wondered too if he was acting like that because he liked her, but I could not tell from the beginning. Griffin was just very rude and short with Shelby and with his reputation of being not so even tempered off the track, it made you wonder.

Shelby is working her magic with the social media and getting sponsors for the team, but will Griffin ruin their chances at getting some good sponsors with his temper? After Shelby and Griffin sort of break the ice at some after party events, Griffin starts to show another side of himself. Shelby is surprised to see that there is a nice side to him after all, but will it last? If you enjoy racing of any kind, you will love this story with Shelby and Griffin as you follow the team on their racing journey. I really hope that we get to see more of the Smoke and Mirror's team! Thanks for a great read Adrian Hale! Can't wait for more!

Adrian Hale Bio:

Adrian R. Hale is a whirlwind of energy and optimism, just as ready to tell you about her books as she is to invite you over for cookies. She is a big dreamer and believes in chasing them down with speed and enthusiasm, much like the characters she writes. You can find her cycling around Austin, TX, running trails, baking gourmet cupcakes, beautifying people for weddings and photo shoots, and traveling all over the country in pursuit of those interests. Once upon a time, Adrian went to college thinking she would be a journalist but dropped out to go to beauty school. Later she wrote a novel about a hair and makeup artist, so things have definitely come full circle! She loves hearing from her readers at adrianrhale@gmail.com.
