Need For Speed; The Elite #2 
(#2 in a series)

by: Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine

Review Rating:



The high octane series continues with this steamy story between Solo and Panther. Ella and Brooke left us with a huge cliffhanger in Danger Zone and we finally find out how Panther fared when he ejected from his fighter jet. This continuation hits on a more emotional level, while still keeping the chemistry brewing between the two men. It still ends on a cliffhanger as this is just the middle portion of their story, but their ending is in sight.

Everyone has a moment in their life when they come to a fork in the road of a major life decision. Do you stay with the job you are currently working at or pursue a new one? Do you buy a new car or keep driving your current one? Is it time to move into a larger home or just make updates to where I’m living?

Even though every fighter jet pilot practices and prepares for the worst case scenario, you don’t actually think it will happen to you. When Panther has to make the split second decision to eject from his jet as he watches his jet crash into the ocean, that life or death decision changes his outlook on what is important in his own life.

Throwing the ever infalible Solo off his game when Panther begins showing him affection, Solo finds himself in new territory. What started as a way to blow off steam during this assignment is turning into more. He helps Panther heal mentally and physically and this only brings them closer, something neither one of them argue about.

Both Panther and Solo are heading into new waters and navigating what they’ve never allowed themselves to feel before it certainly can’t be any scarier than almost dying or watching someone almost die so perhaps they should go all in? With these two you know they don’t hold back much, so once they do decide it will be at full speed.


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?
