The ‘Cuda Confessions series by Eden Connor

Gas or Ass (The ‘Cuda Confessions #1)

AUTHOR’S BLURB: Not every relationship is about love.

The odometer on my sex life was stuck at zero the day my mother dragged home a husband I’d never met. Dale brought his two grown sons to help pack and move us into their house. Both were hard-bodied and handsome, but Caine didn’t speak to me. Colt, on the other hand, said crude stuff like, “Wanna ride with me? Then I’m gonna need gas or ass,” but I couldn’t take my eyes off his rippling muscles and challenging blue eyes.

Some are about speed, sex, and defiance.

When Colt offered me a ride to school, I thought the ‘gas or ass’ thing was a joke, but he wasn’t kidding. Though he barely touched me, he shattered the innocence I couldn’t wait to shed. Even then, I sensed I’d never be the same. He and Caine soon upped the stakes, putting me behind the wheel of cars that could reach insane speeds. They kept challenging me to find my inner wild child, pairing illegal drag races with high-octane sex games, games like ‘winner gets head’.

And some are about trying to break you.

It wasn’t long before I was hooked, but I always planned to walk away. Then everything spun out of control and walking wasn’t an option.
I had to run.

**Disclaimer: This is a tale of a young girl’s crush that turns to hatred and back to love. Gas and Ass is the crush-to-hate part of the story. There’s no HEA inside these pages, so if that’s a must, this isn’t the story for you. If you can delay gratification, however, the hatred-to-love part is the basis of the sequel, Turn and Burn.

MY REVIEW: Intense. The characters’ actions and behaviours will drive you mad with annoyance. In a purely addictive way. There is a method to the madness, surely? I’m not telling. Read this book.

MY RAVE: This first, addictive, infuriating, intimidating book is listed as free. Though you really are going to need to read the other books afterwards. Fair warning.

Turn & Burn (The ‘Cuda Confessions #2)

AUTHOR’S BLURB: When asked to be the keynote speaker to honor my stepfather’s twenty-fifth year with Ridenhour Racing, I was determined to get even with my stepbrothers. When I took an instant dislike to the team’s young superstar, Dale knocked my plans awry by betting his prized ’71 Barracuda Hemi against Kolby’s new Audi RS7 that I could beat the rising NASCAR superstar in a drag race.

I agree to the high-stakes bet, only to realize I’m back where I swore to never be again, drag racing on the country lane where Colt Hannah ruined my life.

Can I find a way to put Colt and Caine on their knees and still win the race, or must I betray the growing relationship I’ve found with my stepfather to get vengeance on the pair who humiliated me?
One thing hasn’t changed in the four years since I left town. Nothing with the Hannah brothers is ever what it seems.

And once more, when I leave town again, neither am I.

MY REVIEW: More questions. More annoyance. Some answers. Major intensity.

Pedal to the Metal: Love’s Drivin’ but Fate’s Got the Pole (The ‘Cuda Confessions #3)

AUTHOR’S BLURB: My love life? It’s complicated.

I walked away from my stepbrothers again,
this time to make my mother happy.
To make my best friend Caroline happy.
And what did those bad boys do?
They put Caroline in the car and came after me.

When you can’t please everyone

One more race, one more adrenaline-soaked night
was all they asked, because even Colt and Caine had realized
that one more was all we could risk before someone got hurt.
One more night together, then we’d do the right thing—or at least stop doing the wrong thing.
But fate had other ideas.

You got to please yourself.

When life shoved me into the wall, I realized everything I believed in, I’d learned from a racin’ man. If he could talk, I knew he’d say it was time
to put the pedal to the metal, so I went hammer down
and hell bent, for love.
If what I did bothers anyone, they can kiss my red-headed,
NASCAR-man lovin’, college-educated, country girl ass.

MY REVIEW: Finally, all the answers. Love for the way all of the characters are essential characters. It’s a nice change from a couple and maybe one or two people they barely interact with. It’s a book and a series that’s all about love. It is a love story. Maybe it’s not traditional, but it’s still valid.
