Drew Forrester is a total adrenaline junkie. His high of choice? Cars. 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 that there are no rules? You gotta be hungry. You gotta have balls. And you can never back down.
Contains mature themes.

There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
The writing...corny, amateur. But, there is something in the work but it didn't come through well.The narrators were...corny. The cadences and tones sounded forced.
"Don't belive the reviews - this book is rubbish!"
I don't understand how this book could legitimately have such good reviews. It's very suspicious.
The writing is appalling. I don't want to waste time explaining why. It's not worth any effort except to warn other members to save their credits and their time. Even as a whispersync, it is not worth the few dollars.
The narration was unremarkable, I though. Given the ludicrous words it was amazing that each line was followed with neither groan nor laugh.
However, I only just now noticed there are two narrators. If the second made an appearance within the first hour, after which I gave up on this crap, I didn't notice any difference between the voices.
"It is a good fit for a summer light reading!"
#Junkie is my first book by Cambria Hebert. It's a nice but simple and unidimensional story.
I love a lot the whole sexual- exploring tension between Trent and Drew. Just best friends or more? So much feelings, emotions until that first kiss. What kinda chemistry they had? That first kiss would prove it!
I like that end with a cliffhanger , leaving me hungry for more. Trent enjoyed Drew's presence. His scent. The familiarity of his movements and the way he always ate the fries off his plate but he pushed the feelings down inside him because they scared him so much. Because he thought they were wrong.
“If you love me as much as you say you do, then fight,”
Overall, it was an enjoyable read and I'm glad I didn't pass it up!
It is a good fit for a summer light reading!
I liked that this book was not totally about being gay. It has a good plot and is mainly about racing more so than two men coming out to themselves. It does seem realistic too so it adds to the overall story.
"I've read the book"
I've read the book multiple times and I love it. However, the narrators are terrible and monotone. The man who voiced Drew did put some effort into the role. Lorhaven's voice imitation was severely creepy. Lovely story, terrible narrators.
"Great Story / Distracting, stilted narration"
I really enjoyed the Kindle version of this book, so I was excited when I found that an Audible version was available. I was looking forward to reliving a great story. But, the narration really sucked the joy out of the experience. The narrator who reads the Trent chapters has a rich, pleasant sounding voice that is perfect for the character. Unfortunately, his reading style is awkward and stilted. It reminded me of someone who is just learning to read and sounds out each word carefully instead of letting the words flow naturally in a sentence. It's really a shame because, as I mentioned, the guy who reads Trent has a really nice voice. I can't help but think that the producer really fell down on the job on this recording, which could have been so much better with a little direction. The narrator who reads Drew reads in a much more natural style. But, every other chapter is from Trent's POV, and Drew's narrator can't carry the book on his own.
"Love this book even more!!"
I would definitely recommend this book. I already love this book and the narrators did a great job.
The question Breaden asks his question near the end of the book.
My favorite scene is where Drew tells Trent how he feels about him.
Trent and Drew. It's hard to explain why I love them. I just love their story.
"I Love these guys so much"
After reading the book, I just had to listen to the audio version of it.
I am so glad I did as it didn't disappoint.
Luke Itzvic & Guy Locke did a great job and made me fall in even more love with Tren and Drew.
