Race car mechanic Andressa "Andi" Amaro has one rule - no dating drivers. With a good reason behind the rule, she has no plans on breaking it.
Carrick Ryan is the bad boy of Formula One, with a face and body that melt panties on sight and an Irish lilt that leaves women on their knees, begging for more. He races hard and parties harder. The youngest driver to ever sign with F1, he's still at the top of his game five years later, breaking hearts on and off the tracks.
When Andi is offered her dream job working in the glamorous world of F1, she leaves her home in Brazil, positive she can handle working for Carrick. But she's not prepared for the off-the-chart sparks that fly the moment they meet. Now Andi has a crush on the one man she can't have, and her resolve is about to be put to the test, because Carrick has decided he wants Andi, and he plans on testing her to the very limit....
What would have made Revved better?
A different narrator
What other book might you compare Revved to and why?
"Driven" by K. Bromberg..the intense sexual buildup, the angst of one of the couples to commit to the other..steamy sex well written..I loved both books.. The difference between the 2..DRIVEN had a great narrator and REVVED had a horrible one...The book version of REVVED is one of my favorites. The audible version ruined because of poor choice of narrator.
Would you be willing to try another one of Lulu Russell’s performances?
What character would you cut from Revved?
Any additional comments?
Andressa was born in England raised in Brazil and you gave her a American accent..her Mother born and raised in BRAZIL you gave a English accent..the narrator could not do male voices well at ALL..the sex scenes sounded like the CHIPMUNKS were at it and you were going to hear "ALVIN" at any minute..Although this is one of my favorite books I was soooo disappointed in the audio version and would not recommend it...read the book that I would highly recommend. .

First of all the hero was a real man whore. Not only that but he got upset that he was called that. It was hard for me to listen to him being such a jerk with other women in front of the heroin. Then the heroin kept going back and forth to the point of extremes with deciding if she wanted to stay or leave him. The story could have been shorter. Having said that I loved the author's writing style and the way she writes if this book was not so frustrating I would have given it a 5... would definitely read her stories again!!
I enjoy the appropriate amount of angst and romance but this book was 99% angst, which made the book very repetitive and utterly frustrating. Of course the infuriating lead refused to see what’s right in front of her for the entire book. It’s just a collection of “well no, but yes, he doesn’t, but do I, no I can’t, but can we, we shouldn’t, no really, but does he, no, but maybe, what if.” Ugh. Kill me now
Revved was already one of my favorite stories I've read but listening to the audio...wow! Their love is magnetic but it's such an emotional journey for them, to work for it. The emotions are so well delivered though the narrator that my throat would swell, my stomach would sink, my eyes would tear, my heart would swell! I FELT everything they felt. I didn't just listen to this audio, I felt like I was right there living these moments alongside the characters! This narrarotor did a stunning job and will be in my list of favorites.
