The original Synopsis can be found here.
Drew Forrester is a total adrenaline junkie.
His high of choice?
The faster, the better.
He’s been making waves in Maryland’s underground racing circuit since he crossed the state line, and after speaking with him, we know he’s not hitting the brakes anytime soon.
So what exactly does it take to burn rubber and make a name for yourself in a world where the only rule is there are no rules?
You gotta be hungry…
You gotta have balls…
And you can never back down.
What’ve we learned here at GearShark?
Drew is all of the above.
We also know he’s got some secrets buried under his hood.
Secrets we think are loaded with octane and just might set the world of cars on fire.

** This book contains an M/M romance relationship. **
Welcome to the first book in Cambria’s spin-off series GearShark. If you’re picking this one up without the benefit of reading her amazing Hashtag series. I’d recommend you start with #Nerd first, simply because you’ll be lost without the background of those first. This book is a M/M relationship, so let this be a warning if you don’t like those. But I think you’d be missing out if you skipped this series just because of that.
In #Junkie you get the very sweet and beautiful story of two best friends falling in love (sometimes while trying to fight it). I loved the way that Drew and Trent’s relationship starts with a mega bromance friendship. The way that Cambria portrays their friendship and deep emotional bond can be seen not only from the first page of this book, but also shines through in the every scene they are in (including the #hashtag books they are in!)
Drew is a character that you just want to love, if only for his closeness to his family. He’s the daredevil who works a computers by day and drives the street races by night. While Trent is the all american football player and frat president who just wants Drew to be safe. Their relationship evolves from their deep and long friendship.
Something else that is amazing in this series is the details that are shown in the racing. Cambria has done an amazing job with the details that just seem to drag the readers in.
I will warn you now that this book ends in a one hell of a cliffhanger (but lucky for you that #Rev is finished and you can read what happens next right away).
This book is a wonderful continuation to characters that we fell in love with in the Hashtag series. If you haven’t yet jumped onto the #Nerd bandwagon you totally need to soon! You also get the added benefit of the series being just about complete so you don’t have to wait the long months that we did!
Until Next Time!
