Want a romance that intertwines the best of drag racing and heart pounding love? Then grab a copy of Out of Control, by Julie Miller. Your heart and adrenaline will race!
She thinks she’s an ugly duckling in a man’s world. He’s trying to catch the person who killed his partner. Their paths cross on a street in Nashville for one amazing night and never to cross again… or so they think. Cars aren’t the only thing racing out of control at the Dahlia Speedway.
I liked that Alex possessed the physical features of a vixen yet she didn’t know that to do with those same attributes. She shows that all women can be sexy regardless of her status in life. Grease monkeys and gear heads can be very saucy. I also liked that Jack wasn’t a typical cop/detective. He played by the rules – his own. His take charge attitude helped smooth over his possessiveness and made him more likable.
The writing was tight and the descriptions of the speedway made you feel like you were a real part of the story. I enjoyed every minute of the journey.
If you want a great summer read, filled with racing heart and racing cars, then Out of Control if the read for you. I give this novel 4.5 books.
