Out Of Control
Harlequin Blaze, Apr 2009, $4.99
Nashville police detective Jack Riley is investigating a drug case, but changes venues to rescue mechanic Alexandra Morgan from the date from hell. Following the murder of her brother, Alex has come to town seeking sexual freedom having worked under the close thumb of her father at his garage in Dahlia, Tennessee.
Without exchanging names, Jack and Alex have incredible sex before going their separate ways. She returns to her hometown as a good girl while he goes back undercover working the drug case. A lead takes him to the Dahlia Speedway where his love of fast cars enables him to pretend to be a race-car driver. When they meet up, each knows the attraction remains strong. However, both share the same mission of finding the cold blooded killer who murdered her brother and his police partner.
OUT OF CONTROL is fast-paced in the bedroom, the race track and several places in between as Jack and Alex prove the body can go from zero to ninety in nanoseconds. The police procedural romance is filled with suspense and tension as each investigates related homicides until they team up as he fears she will be next if she remains OUT OF CONTROL; that is outside his touch. Although the shared allure between the cop and the amateur sleuth never fully shifts into gear, readers will enjoy this heated romantic suspense.
