After the slap heard 'round the world in Stone, At Your Service, the follow up book in the Carolina Bad Boys series featuring Nicky Love is one not to be consumed in public. Enjoy this bad boy with a locked door and bottle of wine!
Without the gay cover story keeping the fangirls from bestselling paranormal author Nicky Love, he's constantly being stalked by crazy. But Nicky sees none of them; he's got a serious hard-on for Catarina Steele, whose buttoned up exterior makes him want to discover the bad girl underneath, but who steers completely clear of this Carolina Bad Boy. Cat is a witchy woman who has completely seduced him by her mysterious and aloof personality, and when he gets to know the inked up and pierced woman underneath the stiff exterior, he falls even harder. But if Nicky's demons run deep, Cat's are positively subterranean. As Nicky peels away her layers, will he be able to handle what is at the core of his Wildcat?
LOVE, IN THE FAST LANE is the much anticipated second book in the Carolina Bad Boys series by the uber talented Ms. Warren. I'm half convinced she is actually a he, since these stories are crazy hot told entirely from the male point of view. It was refreshing that Nicky and Cat didn't get together right away, that their relationship took LOADS of work and even more heartache before they could finally find peace together and within themselves. Cat pulled herself out of the gutter, something that haunts her every day, and Nicky's poor little rich boy past wasn't exactly the epitome of perfection.
While the subject matter was very serious, it wasn't presented as such very often. In fact, I found the writing to delve into the trashy rather than sexy...or funny like it came off in the first book. In places, it kind of put me off, and even though the sex scenes were excruciatingly erotic, they left me feeling dirty at times instead of aroused. That said, the storyline was really excellent, and overall the book was terrific. I adored the inclusion of the characters we fell in lust with in the first book too, and can't wait to read Cat's hot MC bad boy brothers' story next!
