The second book in the Adrenaline Highs series was a definitely a hit for me.

This is my first read by author Dee J. Adams and I really liked it. Her writing style is professional, clear and easy to enjoy.

The seduction and heat start to simmer early on between Quinn and Ellie, with romantic one liners popping up all the time. Although the book was reasonably predictable (which is sometimes hard not to be in contemporary romance IMO) Dee J. Adams keeps

Danger Zone by Dee J. Adams has all of the high-octane excitement of a hot Hollywood car chase movie. And so it should. But Adams' story is much, much better, because Danger Zone is terrific romantic suspense, and more than satisfies on both the romantic and the suspenseful sides.

Quinn Reynolds has flown all the way from London to Hollywood to deliver an ultimatum to his older brother, Mac. Two years ago, Mac dropped the running of their business, Formula One Design, in Quinn's lap, while Mac re

My Review
This is a hard review to write. I really loved book #1 in this series, Dangerous Race, and this book didn't quite measure up to the quality of that book. It was entertaining and was a riveting read, but there were a few things that interfered with my overall rating on the book.

What I liked:
*this book is HOT. Dee's descriptions of Quinn during those intimate scenes...whoa! just...whoa!!
*The action sequences in this book are WONDERFUL. So well-written. They definitely get your adrenaline

This is the second book in the series, but while we get to brush up against the characters we loved in Dangerous Race, this book works beautifully as a stand alone.

Ellie Morgan is a professional stuntwoman at the top of her game - except for one teensy handicap, that her best friend Ashley has helped her cover up since high school. She. Can't. Read. She's dyslexic, but nobody figured it out, just passed her along, while managing to trash her self-esteem by taunts and scoldings about how stupid s

What a Rush!
Being a stunt woman in Hollywood isn't the easiest or most reliable of occupations, but Ellie Morgan has built a solid reputation in her ten-year career. She's good at it. She enjoys it. But her newest gig as stunt double for the star of the movie about female race car driver Trace Bradshaw gave her the first opportunity to get behind the wheel of a race car. And the moment she's in the driver seat, screaming around the track at over a hundred miles an hour, Elle has a moment of perf

Why I Read this Book: After reading , the first book in this series, I knew I wanted more. I love romantic suspense and I enjoyed the author’s writing style so I’m keeping an eye open for more books by Dee J. Adams. And I love reading about women dominating in ‘man’s world’ industry, like race car driving.

What I Liked: The hero and heroine. I liked both of these characters and I liked them for each other. I couldn’t help but appreciate Quinn’s rel
3-3.5 stars

This was a good story. I liked both Ellie and Quinn (with reservations) and their story was good overall.

Ellie is a stuntwoman and has been working as a stuntwoman since she graduated from high school. She grew up with parents that didn't really pay attention to her after her older brother died. Ellie has dyslexia and had major problems reading in school. Unfortunately, she was a skilled athlete and this prompted her teachers to pass her even though she was pretty much illiterate.

Review originally posted here:

I was really looking forward to this book, a little bit of suspense, some racing and movie stunts? It sounded like it would be a fast moving and engaging book that would keep me on my toes. Unfortunately for me, it just didn’t live up to my own hype.

Ellie has been a stuntwoman in Hollywood since a teenager, but with her recent job behind the wheel of a race car, she is looking to get into a new career path. When she meets Qui

Ellie Morgan is a stunt woman. Her latest movie is about a race car driver, and going around the track has her thinking that she was born to race. She is concealing some big secrets about her past. What she is hiding makes her think she is not good enough for more than she has so far. That includes a relationship with Quinn.

Quinn Reynolds decides to get his older brother and co-owner in the family business, to sell Formula Racing Design because he is weary of running it. His playboy image might

I really loved this book. Quinn is a playboy living & working in London. Ellie is a stuntwoman in L.A working on a film depicting Quinn's sister-in-law's career. Quinn comes to the US to talk to his brother about their business face to face. Quinn falls for Ellie nearly immediately, but she turns him and all of his cheesy lines down flat. (Those lines are bad!) He's persistant and eventually she agrees to have dinner with him - via one of the cheesiest moves I have never had the privilage to ...more

This was a pretty creative idea, the main idea of this book is that Hollywood is now making a movie of Tracy's story (from Dangerous Race).

Ellie Morgan gets the part of the stunt woman during the filming. She's a confident young woman even though she's very dependent on her best friend and roommate Ashley. Quinn Reynolds is the younger brother of book one's hero, Mac. He comes into town from England to try and convince his brother to sell their company t

Dee J Adams has offered another great installment in her Adrenaline High Series with Danger Zone. She’s taken an intriguing heroine with a personal secret and introduced her to a too-charming-for-his-own-good hero, then thrown in a villain who will stop at nothing. Amidst high drama, adventure, and action, Ellie and Quinn find each other in a believable progression from immediate physical attraction to emotional, heartfelt love. Stories such as this are the reason I love to read romance. Enjoy t ...more

Average book.
The writing is good and has plenty of potential if used in the correct way.
The plot is fairly predictable and might get boring at times.
Not in the beginning but definitely towards the end.
The characters are okay. I think the author could have done more with them, I'm pretty sure.
I am also pretty sure I love Quinn.
About Elle...I'm still unsure. She's okay in some places and slap worthy in others.
An okay read.

First off, there's no way that you can read DANGER ZONE and not fall in love with Quinn Reynolds! I read DANGER ZONE in two days. Couldn't put it down. Truly touching love story. Lovable characters with relatable inner conflicts. Great suspense and intense action. And, lots of A+ sex scenes:)

This book is a great follow up to the first book in the series. Quin is a yummy hero, and Elle is one of the most well-written heroines I have read in a while. I can't recommend this book enough.

this was a ride in of itself. The things that people will do just to get ahead. I thought Trace had issues. Mac and his brother had some serious aggression to get over.
