Review: Drive Me Crazy by @TracyWolff @BrazenBooks

Drive Me Crazy
by: Tracy Wolff
Release Date: 2/24/14
Genre: Contemporary Romance (Hot)

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.

After the first Shaken Dirty book  i had high expectations for book two. And I wanted to love it I really did, but there where some things for me that made this book a little unbelievable.

At the beginning of the book we find out that Elise has had some very serious damage to three metacarpal bones in her left hand. Now if the damage was as severe as stated in the book then she would've ended up in a cast something similar to this http://www.fpnotebook.com/_media/OrthoWristUlnarGutterCast.png I didn't have any problem with the injury as such but for me it felt like the writer completely forgot that her heroine had her hand in cast for the rest of the book. There is never any mention of her hand in a sling which it would be for a while with such a serious injury.  She has both a shower and a bath and there is no mention of having to cover up her cast so it doesn't get wet. She rides a motorcycle and uses both her hands to hold onto the hero. And when they have sex he has to remove her bra which does up at the back. Any woman who has ever had one hand out of commission knows unless the bra does up at the front or someone helps you to put it on you are going with out. Later on in the book she's also referred to as having a broken wrist instead of fingers which was confusing. This is just a small list of continuity issue with this book there are so many things i read where i was like there is no way she'd be able to do that with her hand in a cast.

There were also some weird sentences like this one 'the front was so long that his bangs flopped crazily over his forehead, down his cheeks, and into his eyes.' am i the only on that thinks this is physically impossible.

All of this being said the emotional elements and the practical jokes where great and the story line it's self was good.  I just wish i'd been able to get into the book more instead of constantly being pulled out of it by unrealistic occurrences.

Overall I give this book 3.75 out of 5

Author Bio:

Tracy Wolff collects books, English degrees and lipsticks and has been known to forget where—and sometimes who—she is when immersed in a great novel. At six she wrote her first short story—something with a rainbow and a prince—and at seven she forayed into the wonderful world of girls lit with her first Judy Blume novel. By ten she’d read everything in the young adult and classics sections of her local bookstore, so in desperation her mom started her on romance novels. And from the first page of the first book, Tracy knew she’d found her life-long love. Now an English professor at her local community college, she writes romances that run the gamut from contemporary to paranormal to erotic suspense.
