Book Review: Drive Me Crazy by Tracy Wolff



Drive Me Crazy (Shaken Dirty #2)
Author: Tracy Wolff
Publisher, Entangled, Brazen
Release Date: 24 February 2014

His rival’s in his bed, and this rocker is ready to play.

Former rivals Quinn Bradford and Elise McKinney are not friends, at least not anymore. As teens, all they cared about was psyching each other out before concerts. But when Quinn—now the keyboardist for Shaken Dirty, the hottest rock band on the scene—returns to his hometown and hears about the car accident that shattered Elise’s career, he’s determined to make things right.

Elise wants nothing to do with an arrogant rock star, despite how bad she so clearly wants him, so Quinn kidnaps the stubborn little piano player and whisks her back to his mansion. A little seduction might be just the thing to keep Elise under his care…and in his bed. But amid pranks both childish and very adult, their past comes rearing back to haunt them. And it might be more than either of them can forget.

Review

I am most definitely a fan of the Shaken Dirty guys and their books! I have been looking forward to this book since Crash Into Me and it definitely didn't disappoint.

Quinn is just divine. Seriously. To begin with, he sounds gorgeous. He's a tattooed, ripped, rock star sex god...need I say more?! Seriously though, there's a whole lot of depth to this rocker that makes him so irresistible. When he was younger he was a talented classical pianist, and now he's part of a wildly popular rock band called Shaken Dirty, playing the keyboards. I loved Quinn's obvious passion for music.
Now Quinn had a pretty rough childhood, and it left its marks. He doesn't think he's good enough for anyone, particularly for Elise. He doesn't see what an incredible man he is, and he pushes everyone away except for his bandmates.
Elise had an equally rough childhood, but in different ways to Quinn. She developed a calm, collected exterior that hid all of her vulnerability. After a car accident robs her of the only things in her life that kept her afloat, she's left to pick up the pieces of her shattered life. For some reason, I was worried that Elise would be kind of bitchy but she's far from it. She can be a little awkward and tries to keep herself on the fringes, but Quinn doesn't let that happen. She's very endearing and you have no choice but to urge her to find some happiness (Quinn) and grab it (him) and never let go.

I loved Quinn and Elise together, they are a great book couple! At first Elise resents the fact that Quinn brings out her vulnerabilities and she doesn't trust him, but it's clear that the attraction between them isn't going to let her keep her shields up. I also loved the way Elise and Quinn connect through music. The passion they have for each other and for the music is a tangible and electric feeling. The pranks they play on each other are brilliant and add the perfect amount of humour to the story. I always looked forward to how they would one up each other. 
Also, that sexual chemistry between them! Hot damn! I felt the heat coming from my kindle, and from my wildly blushing cheeks, during the sex scenes. It was like ten years of pent up desire erupted into an inferno on the page, and it worked so, so well. 

I loved this book. And I want the next one. Now. It has the perfect blend of humour, sexiness, intense love and pain, whilst packing a heavy emotional punch.
All of the Shaken Dirty guys are in this book, and I really enjoy seeing them interact with each other because they're basically brothers. I can't wait to see what the rest of the series will bring for the other members of the band, and which women can tame these wild and sexy rockers! If they're as awesome as the first two books in the series, I will be very happy.
