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?

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.

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

Best writing ever

First off. This story is beautiful and so very well written. Every emotion you can have you’ll get while reading/listening. I’m hoping to see a third book to this series. Please please please

Omg, I loved this book.

Panther's figuring out how much Solo means to him. Solo realizing how much Panther means to him. Sighhhh!!!! This was so sweet and wonderful. I can't wait for the next book.

Need for... more Panther and Solo!

I simply adore Panther and Solo and all of their cocky swagger, crackling playful banter, and sizzling chemistry. Their friendship and relationship deepens significantly in "Need for Speed," and these two men now seriously rival Tate and Logan (from Ella Frank's Temptation series) as my favorite book couple.

Narrators Aiden Snow and Christian Fox are an audio dream team! From the moment Aiden uttered "One. Panther." in that deep, growly voice to open the book, it was GAME ON. They have so fully embodied Panther and Solo with their performances, and are a pleasure to listen to across this series.

I so very highly recommend "The Elite" series. I can't wait until "Classified" (Book 3) is released on audio to pick up where "Need for Speed" left off!

Amazing!!!! Must listen to this series !!

Ella and Brooke knocked this one out of the park. These two characters are a perfect match. And I loved both narrators!! They were both perfectly suited for their characters. Christan Fox especially was the perfect Solo. Now Audible needs to hurry up and release book 3!!!!
