4 ½ stars – Romantic Suspense

I love getting my occasional Harlequin Blaze fix because you can count on them being a light, fast read with hot romance, but Out of Control turned out to be a really great romantic suspense and one of the best Blaze books that I’ve read.

Jack Riley is a 40-year-old Nashville cop who loves fast cars and fast women. Lately he’s feeling like he’s lost his edge on the job, especially after being shown up by a hotshot rookie during a high speed pursuit of a drug dealer s...more

Recommended to Dina by: Alathea & Shawna
This book has 2 things that could have gone wrong to me: the one-night stand with a stranger (in a public place, to make it "worse") and the big (15 years) age gap between the H/h. But I decided to give it a try anyway because Alathea and Shawna loved it, and I'm really glad I did. :)

Alexandra "Alex" Morgan is "a woman in a man's world", working as a mechanic in her father's garage. She loves it and she's very good at it, but her father can't help wishing she found a good man, got married and st...more
They came together one night, in anonymous "hand-made" passion in the darkened interior of his truck. Now, seven months later they meet again. Neither of the two has been able to forget that night of passion, but Jack Riley has bigger fish to fry than to embark on an affair with Dahlia's resident tomboy mechanic Alexandra Morgan. Even though he would love nothing more than to peel her large overalls off her and rediscover the highly feminine body underneath.

He's on a mission to bust the drug-tra...more
Sophisticated writing, very likeable characters and a good balance of scorching romance and suspense. So chuffed that I gave this book a try since it turned out to be one of the best category books I've ever read.
I think this was a better action novel than a romance. I enjoyed the story line much better than the blazey parts, which were few and far between.
I really liked this book. The suspense was really good, along with the action and emotions. I would definitely read this book again. Enjoy
Amusing, fun read although there were moments (especially the beginning!!!) that made me cringe.
good story.. a few moments of excessive introspection.
