Clutched by Elizabeth Lee – Review

Clutched

Synopsisclutchedfinal

Chayse McCade learned along time ago that the only person she can depend on, both on and off the motocross track, is herself. Her parents disappointed her on more than one occasion and every relationship she’s ever had—platonic, professional, or romantic—has ended in disaster. When a sponsorship offer from Throttled Energy comes along she worries that it’s too good to be true. Especially when she meets the know-it-all riding coach they are insisting she work with.
Hoyt Travers is a lot of things. Level headed, discerning, intelligent, patient, or so he thought. That is until his new riding student rolled into his life. She’s wild, unpredictable, and gorgeous—all of which she uses to get under his skin in every possible way.
The two of them have undeniable, explosive chemistry that threatens to burn both of their dreams to the ground. Once Chayse let’s Hoyt in, she can’t seem to keep her protective walls up anymore. Too bad there’s a hard rule about them being anything more than colleagues. Hoyt never steps outside the lines but Chayse will push him in more ways than one. Lines will be irrevocably blurred in the final installment of the Wild Riders series.

Review

4 Stars

Quick fun read with some great tension. Two people fighting their feelings to save their careers, struggling to find balance and figure out that some people are more important than dreams.

My Thoughts

I really enjoyed Chayse in this book. She was a awesome heroine that also kicked ass in the male dominated sport of motocross. I loved that she was able to take no crap, but also had a softer side that she was reluctant to show. And Hoyt, oh Hoyt. He was such an ass sometimes, but man was he a big softy once you got past that gruff all business exterior. It was fun to see these two struggle with their relationship both professional and personal and fight their attraction to each other. This is the third in the series and can be read as a standalone, but as I was reading I really wanted the other couple’s stories, so I will go back and read those too. Overall I really liked the world and characters that Elizabeth Lee created and can’t wait to explore it further in Throttled and Whipped.

About the Author

Born and raised in the middle of a Midwestern cornfield (not literally, that would be weird), I’ve spent my entire life imagining stories. Stories where the right guy always gets the right girl, first kisses are as magical as they are on the big screen and anything is completely possible if you believe.

Although this journey began years ago, it recently took on a whole new life. After years of devouring hundreds of Romance, YA and New Adult novels, I had an epiphany… I should write a book. And I did it!

If I’m not reading, writing, enjoying drinks with my amazing group of girlfriends or chasing around a sarcastically funny kid, I’m probably watching television shows that were created for teenagers, while my husband teases that I’m too old to watch them.
