Julie Miller brings you the next book in the 0-60 series
from Dahlia, Tennessee. Seven months ago Alex Morgan would
have laughed at any man who found her sexy. She was a
tomboy who worked in her father's garage near the
racetrack. After a date goes bad she runs into a man who
will change her life forever. Detective Jack Riley who is
15 years older than Alex. They share a steamy encounter in
Nashville before they both return to their "real" lives.
Over the past seven months both Jack and Alex have barely
gotten by. Alex's brother, Nick was killed and Jack's
partner, Eric was killed. Soon they learn their deaths
were connected. Jack is working undercover in Dahlia in
hopes of bringing a drug ring down and getting revenge on
Eric's killer. To his surprise he runs into Alex who
almost ruins his undercover operation. After giving her
the details of the operation Alex is now involved and that
can mean more trouble for her and for Jack.
Julie Miller gives us another amazing story to escape
with. I love the age difference between Jack and Alex,
there aren't too many stories like this one out there. I
think it adds depth to the story that Alex and Jack do
share a past together, only a few hours, but still it gives
them reason to be drawn together seven months later. It
gives them the opportunity to bring those to justice and to
give Jack time to get used to there age difference. The
secondary characters give Alex a past and a history, not
too pretty, but one Jack helps her overcome and get past.
The town of Dahlia is easily seen through the readers eyes,
you can see the diner where everyone meets for dinner, you
can see the racetrack, you can see the men and women
racing. But more importantly you can feel the emotions
Jack and Alex feel throughout the story. It's a
spectacular read! A must-read for any Harlequin fan!
