Crew Tori is the mechanic on the team and has always secretly had a thing for Emery what she doesn t ealize is that he also has the same crush When Tori s past comes back to haunt her Emery steps in to protect her and while they e in hiding together the sparks fly I found it a bit difficult to like Emery because of his one word answers to everything Tori pretty much has imaginary conversations with herself especially in the beginning and she pretends he s actually talking I just never felt like his character was super likeable and you never eally get to know him I did eally enjoy that the two don t immediately jump into bed with one another they eally get to know one another first well as much as you can with the silent Emery This book is a good mix of suspense and omance and I ll definitely be eading the next book in the series Shift brings us to the world of undercover FBI hired assassins sexy computer nerds and kickass mechanics Tori and her sister have been on the un hiding from the Rissian Mafia for most of their lives But now their past has finally caught up to them and Tori needs the help of Emery the teams go to tech guy if she wants to protect herself and her sister Having people after her isn t exactly pleasant for Tori but it does bring her closer to her crush so maybe something good can come from it I eally liked how the suspense was brought into this book and how neithe ARC REVIEW YAY I love Sidney Bristol and her Hot Rides series especially this book feeds my loves omance fast cars and computers I eally can t wait until her Beauty and the Geek comes out A group of people under contract to the FBI with one purpose to take down Michael Evers But with him in jail now and no word from the FBI powers that be everyone is just waiting around for the other shoe to drop It drops it drops in the form of Russian assassins out to kill the two daughter for former KGB spy My two favorite parts had to deal with one a Tesla Roadster and the other a 57 Chevy Bel Aire This book was super good high speed chases shoot outs car sex fast paced story I inhaled this bookEmery Martin the uiet computer expert deep undercover FBI agent for the Classic Rides team finds out that the Russians have put out a hit and the uber assassin is on his way now Emery s priorities switch and his only goal now is to protect Tori at all costs Just when they think it couldn t get any worse the FBI is eleasing Evers the idiot ival street gang The Eleventh are in deep with the people out to get even with Classic Rides and Michael Evers and their is someone even worse than Michael Evers out there pulling the stringsTori and Roni were aised by their father former KGB he aised them like little soldiers When he finally died Toni and Roni became contract agents for the FBI an easy way for the government to keep on eye on them Tori has had a crush on Emery for years she s trust him and so when he says the Russian mob sent their best assassin to kill you and Roni we need to leave now she goes It s nothing new for her she is use to just picking up and changing herself to someone else but she likes the life she has here and she likes Emery Emery always had a thing for Tori but never thought he was good enough for her With her life on the line and everything going to shit they both finally ealize they share the same feelings for each other Trust is what will keep them alive and togetherOverall I think I liked it than the first book it was definitely intense and well hot nerd I eceived a free copy of this book to ead and eview for Wicked Reads Oh what an emotional journey these books take us on I loved the first in the series but I think I might even like this one I certainly would ecommend that you ead them in order as there is background that makes a difference although I am sure it would be a great ead even on its own I like strong women and both Tori and her twin sister have been that since they were tiny She has fallen for Emery the IT geek who says very little To compensate she has developed a brilliantly funny habit of supplying his elies in her head I eally enjoyed how that worked and how her conversations did not exactly tally with eality Alongside this smouldering passion is a fast and furious adventure which involves the mob the Russians the FBI and the police and of course the team themselves It is well plotted and does not stay away from some of the harsh ealities of that kind of adventure which may necessitate a tissue or two Whilst we are nowhere near uncovering everything the end is satisfying for now Cannot wait to see what happens next and I can see myself having a marathon when they are all written so that I can get the whole picture This was just an okay ead for me I found it difficult to get into this story It never eally got my interest The writing was good thoughARC eceived from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest evie.

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 eceived a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest eview I eally enjoyed this one It started out a bit slow for me but once the action got started I couldn t put 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 past could catch up with her one day but why now Life is good and unning just doesn t feel ight 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 action packed story that you don t want to miss I ecommend 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 eaders to this group that works out of a classic car garage that is a front for an FBI operation Shift now picks up the story a couple months after the end of the first book and centers around Tori and Emery so even if you haven t ead the first in the series this one would ead 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 ead Drive and ather enjoyed that book You have a high speed omantic suspense novel that was completely action packed with a ather fun couple However with Shift I found that while the action still appeared in the story it got off to a ather slow start for me I d say with this installment of the series I just never fully connected because I eally couldn t get myself attached to the omance between Tori and Emery I liked Tori well enough with her toughness in the first book and also in this one but Emery just eally 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 esponse at all during times Tori interacted with him Not much of a turn on in my opinionOverall I d ate this second book of the series 25 stars unfortunately Not as big of a fan of the omance in this one Still full of action and hot ides though so I d probably continue on the series I eceived an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest eviewFor eviews please 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 ead very close to this one for clarity purposes I didn t hold much hope for this story Sadly it was as bad as I had feared it would beThe book was once again very slow moving which made it suffer early on even with it being set two months after the events of the first book in the series While it did pick up eventually after two books with the same formula of snail like slow movement early on then ocket fast finish I was eady to call it uits on the series by the end of this oneI liked Tori as a character overall though her secrets went much deeper than I had thought I admired her survival in the face of significant odds and liked how she kept her sense of humor spunk and identity throughout it all I liked how she didn t give up on Emery even though he wasn t the easiest man to fall in love withEmery was not a good fit for me I couldn t see him in the field agent ole he kept putting himself in for one For another he was extremely hard to connect with I get that he s got tortured soul syndrome going on but he came off entirely too controlled for what he had gone through I kept wanting him to get angry and confront his familyWhile there was a bit of a small mystery forming in this book it was not enough to keep me interested in the series I think this will be my last ead by this author as I ve not enjoyed much of what she s written that I have ead I eceived a free copy of this book to ead and eview for Wicked Reads4 StarsThis was an enjoyable ead it just starts out a bit slow Once it hits about 25% though the action picks up and it becomes fast paced I ve not ead book one and this can be ead as a stand aloneEmery is the computer geek on the team of FBI agents undercover as the Hot Rides.

The geek gets the girl Or course this geek is totally hot but it s not eadily obvious which is efreshing Sidney Bristol does a great job creating very eal and uniue characters with both Emery Martin and Tori Chazov Tori who s been crushing on Emery for ages doesn t ealize that under that computer whiz exterior lurks a lust worthy body Emery is conversationally challenged His monosyllabic answers make it hard to get to know him His focus on his computers is so absolute that Tori doesn t even ealize he s intensely attracted to her Nor does he ealize Tori is creating semi legitimate excuses to be with him Tori while beautiful is no average girl either As the book blurb explains she s likely to be wearing engine grease than mascara and that doesn t bother Emery in the leastReading of the perfect hunk meeting the fabulous girl gets old and I can never see myself being friends with the characters I don t know about you but I like to put myself in the middle of the story Emery and Tori are average a little flawed and a bit socially awkwardI also like that the two don t meet one day and end up in bed and in love hours later These two have been falling in love slowing through their mutual attraction in a too eal scenario As SHIFT unfolds the eader becomes aware of the great depth of emotion they ve each carried for the other As Tori and Emery are thrown together in a ace against the bad guys they too finally become aware Once they are together they both struggle with defining just what s happening You know What does this mean Will we see each other after the case Does he think this is just a fling This book isn t just a omance though There s lots of suspense too Russian mobsters hired assassins FBI agents Miami police a street gang and drug unners keep the excitement level high and the action fast moving There s just the ight mix of life and death action elationship and sexI felt at times I could have followed the other characters better of I d ead the first book but this novel still works as a stand alone ead Either way it s an entertaining and interesting story 35 StarsClassic Rides may be their legitimate business to the outside world allowing all of the team to emain hidden but Emery s job tends to keep him separated from them as you can usually find him in his own little fortress surrounded by his computers doing what he needs to do to keep his teammates safeEmery thanks to a certain set of skills that landed him in trouble now secretly works for the FBI as an agent and field tech Although his job isn t uite the usual per the employee handbook His talents are a bit ummlegally challenged But as he s now on the ight side of the law and not completely bored out of his mind he can handle this new side of himself Plus it keeps him close to the woman he can t stop thinking about can t stop wanting and it comes in handy sometimes like now when he uses that talent to work a deal for some information egarding a hit A hit Emery thinks is meant for Tori the woman he yearns to be with yet believes she s out of his league as he s the esident geekTori and her twin Roni are the daughters of a KGB spy turned American informant Though their Dad may be gone now there are people that believe they have some valuable information Tori and Roni being part of the same undercover team as Emery doesn t help eitherAs for Tori she is fascinated by all things Emery aka The Walking Brain and is finding it harder to hide that fact Not to mention the fact that he hides his emotions so well she has no idea what he thinks about her about anything eallyAs Emery uncovers details egarding the hit he also learns a little about Tori and Roni s pasts What he learns leaves him with mixed emotions fear for Tori and shock as he gets of a peek into their childhood As Roni is out of town with other team members therefore of the euation ight now Emery needs to know Tori is safe and to be with her to make sure she stays that wayCan Emery keep her safe Will the danger be over before Roni eturns Will Tori and Roni s pasts finally be laid to est Who is after Tori and Roni Is it solely tied to their past or is going on they aren t aware of yet What happens when Emery and Tori are in such close uarters together Will they ealize the attraction is mutual Will they act on it Is their connection than physical Could they have something eal growing between them Is there a HEA in their futureOne click now to ead about this group of misfits somewhat eformed that have come together and become a family Watch as two of them finally act on their chemistry and ealize they belong together Please keep in mind this is book two in the series Drive being the first I hadn t previously ead the first book and the author does give some of the back story allowing us to catch up I do wish I had ead the books in order as I feel I would ve enjoyed this one and felt connected to the characters All. Nothing shines like classic cars under the Miami heat With engines evving hot and emotions unning high sparks are sure to fly Tori Chazov isn't exactly the girl next door For one if the neighbors found out she's an FBI asset and the daughter of a KGB defector she'd have to grab her go bag and un Then there's her day job making magic.
