Review and Excerpt Tour: Adrenaline (Speed #2) by Kelly Elliott

Posted on



Malcolm Wallace lived for the adrenaline rush. If he wasn’t living life on the edge, he wasn’t living. He had no time for relationships, let alone love.

When one event changes Malcolm’s entire future, he must turn to the one person who makes him doubt his entire philosophy on life.

Paislie Pruitt.

She’s beautiful.

She’s strong.

She’s the one rush Malcolm never saw coming.

Adrenaline is book two in the Speed series




My Review

“I had become addicted. It was as if she was a drug, and I needed a fix every single day.”

“I swore a long time ago I would never let another man into my heart to hurt me. Then I met you, and everything has been turned upside down. You do things to me…things that make me want to give you my very soul.”

“I can’t breathe without you. I need you to know that. You’re everything I need.”

Adrenaline is the second book in the speed series and follows the story of Malcolm and Paislie.  Paislie learned at a very young age just how important it is to protect your heart. All she’s ever wanted from life was to be loved. Paislie decides that it’s time to put herself out there and hopes for the best. However, her first relationship in I don’t know how long isn’t all that great. Sure the sex if fun, but she just doesn’t feel the spark. That is until one day, she bumps into Malcolm. Bumping into him was the best thing that could have ever happened to her. It opened her eyes and made her want more. She knew at that moment she had to end her relationship…..Malcolm has spent the last few years living the life of a playboy. He hasn’t had a serious relationship since high-school. But, when he meets Paislie, he’s suddenly wanting more. He wants to get to know her; spend time with her. For the first time ever, he’s letting a woman get close to him. The road to HEA for these two won’t be an easy one, but if Malcolm can open his eyes and his heart, he’ll see that Paislie is just the adrenaline rush he needs.

Adrenaline was a fantastic read from start to finish. This book starts off with one heck of a beginning and leaves you begging for more. This is one of those reads that just sucks you into the pages and refuses to let you put it down. I fell in love with Paislie and Malcolm right from the start. My heart ached for these two broken characters. I wanted them both to find the happiness that they deserved. And boy, was I rooting for these two. From the moment we meet them, the sparks are undeniable. No matter how hard they try to fight it, the pull is too hard to resist. They are just explosive!

What can I say about Adrenaline? This book is well written and will take you on one fantastic ride. It is sexy. It is fun. It is full of angst. Light on the overall drama. It’s steamy. And in the end, it will leave you with a smile on your face. This story gave me everything I was looking for and more. And I have to say, I really loved how everything tied together in the end. This was a fantastic read. I definitely recommend checking this one out!

There was nothing like it.

Pulling on the reigns, I turned Black Jack and headed back to the house. She’d be here soon and I still needed to take a shower. 

“Let’s go boy,” I shouted as I gave Jack a bit of pressure to get him into a run.

Twenty minutes later hot water was running over my body.

My hands were leaning against the travertine wall as I hung my head with my eyes closed.

“If that’s not the best damn site I’ve seen in awhile.”

With a grin, I smiled as I felt her hands move across my wet body. “Did you miss me?” she whispered against my skin while she slowly moved her lips down my chest.


Kelly Elliott is married to a wonderful Texas cowboy who has a knack for making her laugh almost daily and supports her crazy ideas and dreams for some unknown reason…he claims it’s because he loves her!

She’s also a mom to an amazing daughter who is constantly asking for something to eat while her fingers move like mad on her cell phone sending out what is sure to be another very important text message.

In her spare time she loves to sit in her small corner overlooking the Texas hill country and write.

One of her favorite things to do is go for hikes around her property with Gus….her chocolate lab and the other man in her life, and Rose, her golden retriever. When Kelly is not outside helping the hubby haul brush, move rocks or whatever fun chore he has in store for her that day, you’ll find her inside reading, writing or watching HGTV.
