Summary

Need for Speed is the continuation of Solo and Panther’s story and should only be heard after book one, Danger Zone

They train to serve their country.
They strive to be the best.
But only a select few can be....
The Elite  

Mateo Morgan
Call Sign: Solo  

Reckless, arrogant, and bold, Solo is as known in the US Navy for his bad-boy reputation as he is for his skills as a fighter pilot. It’s a surprise to his peers, then, when he’s chosen to train and compete at the most prestigious naval aviation academy in the world. 

Mission Rules:
1. Kick everyone’s ass.
2. Do whatever it takes to win.
3. Do your best to distract the competition.
4. Especially when that competition is a gorgeous blue-eyed perfectionist who makes your blood run hot.  

Grant Hughes
Call Sign: Panther

Disciplined, smart, and confident, Panther can’t afford not to play by the rules. As the son of a top Navy commander, all eyes are on him, and being anything less than number one is unacceptable. 

Mission Rules:
1. Keep it safe in the air.
2. Prove you’re more than Commander Hughes’s son.
3. No distractions. Stay focused.
4. Don’t fall for your competition - especially not the rebellious heartbreaker with lips made for sinning. 

In the heat of the hot California sun, tempers flare and desires ignite as Solo and Panther try to resist their attraction while fighting to be number one. 

With passion this intense, the question remains: Who’s gonna come out on top?

3rd time around

Having discovered this series last year, this is my 3rd time listening to it. And even though it is 3rd time, I still love it as much as I did the first. ❤️❤️❤️

cliffy

This cliffhanger was not as dramatic as book 1 but i still dived right into book 3. These 2 characters are on fire and can't wait to get the conclusion.

Part two flying high

Story: The natural flow of the story was very well done in this series. We jump into the plot right where it was left off. I loved the emotional side of the MCs that came out more and more in this part. The authors did a great job capturing the development of the relationship.

Narration: Very good dual narration.

Sizzling

Part 2 of this scintillating tale narrated by champion narrators Fox and Snow. Everything you'd want from a follow on.

Well done Audible another gem, but I'm not amused to find this story is in 3 parts with the final part not available yet!

No HEA or HFN ending in this book! You must buy Book 3.

Neeeeed for the next book stat!

Oh my lort. Panther and Solo are the absolute best. We start to dig deeper in this book. Get to know Solo than just his facade. Also get to know Panther too. Their relationship evolves at a pace that’s natural to them. The flights described in the books is even more epic when they’re narrated. And the sexy times, holy tamales!

Aiden and Christian are perfect as Panther and Solo.

I’m going to dive into the last book of this series. I already know it’s going to be amazing & I can’t wait for the audio version of it.

Hot and yummy!

Audiobook review by Mel
4.5 Blue Roses

4 Blue flames

Dual Narrators Aiden Snow and Christian Fox successfully delivered one of the sexiest series of the year. Everyone knows my Aiden is the best, but coupled with Christian Fox, the pair produced one hell of a ride, or should I say flight? Both these men have a deep and smooth timbre in their voices, which are ideally suited for the testosterone-filled airforce trainee fighter pilot series. They complimented each other and were able to pick up and run with the tension bouncing back and forth. It was magic! They are absolutely a winning combination.

The Series itself is tribute or fanfare to “Top Gun” the movie. Man, could I visualize how the flights went? How they took flight into the air and how the protagonists experienced the velocity and strength of the jets. I watched that movie as a child many-many times. Loving the sexy men in their uniforms and aviator sunglasses, jets, motorbikes, and the speed, and this exactly what the plot is all about.

Panther and Solo are both alpha male personalities. Thanks to the excellent narration, they have stolen my heart and now I am obsessed. They are all kinds of sexy and the chemistry between the two of them is smoldering hot. They have a love-hate relationship in the beginning, which quickly grows into banter and then mutual respect.

As for the cliffhangers…

I would recommend waiting until all three are available on audio. It’s actually one story chopped up in three pieces. This is why I never want to listen to short, audiobooks. It’s quite irritating, imagine, going to the movies and halfway through they stop the movie, tell you to go home and come back in three months to watch the rest. But, I was such an eager beaver to hear my Aiden, I could not click-buy-listen fast enough.

Happy Listening

The heart is getting deeper in this!

The second story in this series, your heart will definitely feel more. Panther and Solo can no longer deny their attraction. But they need to keep it hidden on base and from Panther's parents. This isn't always easy, especially after Panther is injured in flight. Small cliffhanger at the end, awaiting book three

Cliffhanger did not take from the story - really just introduces the next act nicely.

Excellent Narration by both Aiden Snow and Christian Fox.

Need for Speed

OH MY GOSH! Ella and Brooke did it to me again! I didn't realize that I was at the end of the book. This time I was squealing overjoyed for both Panther and Solo. I can't wait to see where their relationship will end up. Aiden Snow and Christian Fox are absolutely fantastic!

Amazing Narration and Wonderful Story

Panther and Solo are such an amazing couple. I really enjoy the development of their relationship. The way Panther is coming to terms with his feelings and the way Solo is healing and supporting Panther. This story picks up where book 1 left off and didn't follow the predictable military gay couple storyline that might be expected. I will be instantly diving into book 3 because I need to know what happens next! The narration continues to be phenomenal as stated in my review of Book 1. Christian Fox and Aiden Snow bring heat and emotion to their performances.

ENJOYED THIS ONE MORE THAN BOOK #1!!

As I became invested in the story, the cross narration was less distracting. Quality performances by the actors made it work. I can hardly wait for the MCs to find their HEA!

MM Navy Romance

Panther and Solo are back in this installment and it is all about the feels. First, Ella had left us completely hanging at the end of the book 1, so I had to see what happened even prior to fully reading this story. Edge of your seat reading for sure. So this book picks up immediately where book 1 left off. This book follows Panther and Solo through the murky waters of feelings, and what their feelings for each other are evolving into. I really loved this book. More than book 1. I liked reading how confused they were and how they each on their own came to terms with their feelings. This one ends on a less exciting cliff, but a cliff nonetheless. I am eager to finish this series, as this one was great, and I believe the next will be just as good. Aiden Snow & Christian Fox are amazing on these narrations. I could listen to them all day!!
