Full Speed Ahead is an excellent continuation of the Food Truck Warriors series.
Ash and Lennox make a lovely couple.
I like the timeline. The backstories are sufficient to know the character's pasts, and they shed light on the whys and wherefores of their present mindset. The secondary characters do what they should to keep the action moving along,
The romance is sweet, and the passion is intense. The HEA is believable and satisfying.
The stalker parts are a bit creepy, and I guessed the wrong bad guy, so kudos to the author. However, I wouldn't say I liked Lennox's handling of the case. That bummed me out.
But, I enjoyed this. I look forward to more from this author.
This one was a total miss and a total mess for me.
To be honest, my gut told me to stop at 50%.
I pushed through because I'd committed myself to a review, but, I'm sorry, by 88% I was screaming for this book to just... END ALREADY! By this time, I couldn't care less about HEAs or if they ever catch the crook (who somehow moved at the speed of light because he was on drugs (??)
(what kind of employer would TELL his staff to use drugs anyway ... In a restaurant kitchen no less?)
No complaints about the writing. This was good, as Beth's writing always is (except for some inconsistency in a few scenes and some silly mistakes and incorrectly used words, which I hope the proofreader would have picked up).
My issue was with the plot, the surprising LACK of chemistry between the two mcs. The romance seemed to take a back seat to the mystery and suspense in the story... which turned out to be anti-climactic and, I think, I little ridiculous. The drugs, the supposed reason for the malice towards Ash?
The characters were likeable enough (though I really wish we'd have been told their ages... especially Lennox), as always the environment building was good, as we've all come to love this "family" of food truck guys... but I was just never quite convinced of the attraction between Lennox & Ash apart from being told and a few forced bedroom scenes (which I mostly skimmed... Something I've never done before).
I was also quite annoyed at the repeated "guilt"... first Ash, then Lennox, then back to Ash...
Aaand constantly throwing Marcus into the mix. Always and consistently bringing up comparisons between Marcus & Ash. Allll the time! Till my tummy ached. 😣
And, yes. I agree with another reviewer... Ash's actions in the penultimate chapter were unbelievably stupid! (resulting in... Yep! More guilt)
Nope, for the most part, this book doesn't come close to the charm and sweetness of "Hit the Brakes", which I absolutely loved.
I can't recommend.
Two stars for a nice cover.
One star for effort.

I thought the premise was good, but somehow it didn't pan out as believable. I loved it when all the guys from the previous books came together, and how they looked out for one another. When they were on page with Ash and Lennox, they seemed to breathe life into the story. I've read the majority of Beth Bolden's books, and enjoyed them. This one just didn't hit the mark, still, it won't put me off reading her future work. 3.5 ⭐s
I received an ARC of this book, which in no way influenced my opinion.
The thing I enjoy about a good series is the way all past characters make an appearance and we get to catch up with them and this series is brilliant for that. All the Food Truck Warriors are like family, they care for each other and have each other’s backs which was a very good thing for Ash as he needed all the help he could get!
