Synopsis

If they want to have a future, they’ll have to let go of the past…

Georgia Bennett likes to keep busy. So much so that sometimes it’s like she’s on autopilot. It’s the only way she can cope with the tragic loss of her fiancé and move on with her life. Between nursing school and volunteering at the hospital, she barely has time to breathe. But when the bad boy of motocross gets injured and needs her help, she can’t turn him down.

Brett Sallinger likes his women like his bikes. Fast. Uncomplicated. Replaceable. But when he finds himself forced to take time off of his professional freestyle motocross career to recover from a devastating injury, getting to know the guarded girl nursing him back to health becomes even more important than healing.

She’s suffered so much loss already and is terrified of getting close to someone with such a dangerous career.

He’s determined to bring her back to life and refuses to let her slip through his fingers.

With everything on the line they’ll have to decide if it’s worth the risk…

Review

Brett Sallinger has completely stolen my heart! Elizabeth Lee has blown me away with the fun, cocky, worship-worthy motorcross hottie that made me laugh in Throttled. Whipped is Brett and Georgia’s story and it is the perfect addition to the Wild Riders series. Elizabeth Lee has filled the pages of this novel with fantastic humor, delicious heat, and unexpected heart that consumed me completely. I loved getting lost in this familiar world, seeing Nora, Reid, and Hoyt again felt like coming home. The perfect balance of light-hearted fun and emotional angst, Georgia and Brett’s journey made my heart ache one minute and had me laughing the next. Elizabeth Lee’s writing just gets better and better with time, and I love how effortlessly she brings her vibrant characters and unforgettable stories to life. Her creative storyline construction, lyrical prose, and vivid imagery blend together into something captivating and beautiful.

“That moment far surpassed the others we’d shared. For a moment it was like there was nothing or no one that could stand in between us.”

Brett was so fun to unravel. I loved seeing the sweet, caring side of him that was brought out during his time away from the hectic motorcross lifestyle. Elizabeth Lee allowed him to grow into his emotions at a pace that felt genuine to his character, leaving me totally hooked on this former ladies man. While Brett dealt with newly discovered emotions, Georgia worked to let go of the emotions keeping her from moving forward with her life. There was something so satisfying in seeing her face the past and make peace with her fiance’s death in order to move on. Through this character growth, Elizabeth Lee not only made her totally lovable and relatable, but she revealed a strength in Georgia that was undeniably beautiful. Brett’s laid-back, fun-loving attitude perfectly balanced Georgia’s serious, responsible demeanor. Together they brought out the best in each other, pushed each other to embrace life, and turned up the heat when their differences inspired friction. Their chemistry was palpable from the start and as their connection grew I found myself more and more invested in their happily ever after.

“We’d yelled. We’d screamed. We’d kissed. And, then she let me touch her and gave me a part of herself that she’d locked away for a long time. It was just us.”

Whipped is a journey of healing, both emotionally and physically. It captures the trials of moving forward and the risks we take to open our hearts again after they’ve been shattered. Georgia and Brett’s story was surprisingly poignant while being addictively entertaining and full of life. Elizabeth Lee did a great job with the timing and pacing of Whipped. I love that we didn’t have to wait to jump into Brett and Georgia’s story. Having met them in Throttled, their easy friendship and undeniable chemistry had already laid the groundwork for something more between them. With both character’s having their own issues to overcome, we needed the time to let them figure things out beyond the basics of getting to know each other and Elizabeth Lee did not disappoint. The continuation of Nora and Reid’s happily ever after in this book made me absolutely giddy, while I adored the bits and pieces we got of Hoyt and Chayse, leaving me anxious with excitement for his book. I was sure no one could beat our Reid Travers for my favorite motorcross man, but I guess I never saw Brett coming. Brett Salinger owns me completely!
