Review: NEED FOR SPEED by Brooke Blaine & Ella Frank

need for speed

Need For Speed by Ella Frank & Brooke Blaine
Series: The Elite, book 2
Genre: M/M Romance
Publisher: self published
Publication Date: March 27, 2020
Rating: ★★★★1/2


Need For Speed starts right off where book 1 ended. We were all holding our breathes after that insane cliffhanger and now we can breathe properly because everyone is okay. FOR NOW!

This story is more emotional and you get to see Panther and Solo being vulnerable with each other. AND. IT. WAS. GLORIOUS. I am a sucker for men baring it all and Brooke and Ella helped us see these two in amazing depth.

I formed genuine emotional connections with these characters so if I wasn’t invested before (believe me I really was) I’d definitely be obsessed now.

I just love the raw, passionate way these characters have been written. I crave this depth in M/M stories and Ella and Brooke are masters of giving you what you want. I am IMPATIENT for the next installment as it cannot come fast enough.

4.5 Stars!

Need for Speed is the continuation of Solo and Panther’s story and should only be read 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

* * *


Reckless, arrogant, and bold, Solo is as known in the U.S. 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.

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.

* * *


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.

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?
