Every year to this point in my adult life, I write down 3 New Year's Resolutions: lose 20 pounds, learn to speak Spanish, and write a romance novel. Honestly, next year I may only write down 2 resolutions, because Tara Janzen beat me to #3.
First of all, props to Janzen, because if you go to her website, she's got cars AND guns on display on two of her pages, so she's not just hitting the microfiche alone to research this, the first book in her first series of books. I'm not a gun person in real life, but she gets an A+ in the accuracy department.
If you're the type of person who doesn't want to suspend disbelief in the "love-at-first-sight" department, this may not be the book for you. The book's events take place over 5 days, so in hindsight, even I'm doubting how long a relationship can last after the suspense and action. It's my realist side choking the life out of my hopeless romantic side.
That said, let me say that I read this book in a car, with a flashlight for a reading lamp, desperate for any reading light to continue to know what would happen at the end of the book. Oh, and the love scenes are hot... as in, melt-my-rosary-beads hot. The only couple who gets the luxury of a bed for their love scene are the secondary characters. Again, not for the faint of heart, but I ate it up.
I'm thinking about creating a countdown timer for when I receive "Crazy Cool" in the mail.
Oh this is the kind of series that you talk with your friends about, saying "you HAVE to read this series, no really the stories are great and there are these super hot cars like a red mustang called Charlotte the Harlot and Jeanette the Jet and these super super hot guys with nicknames like Captain America and Superman... you REALLY have to read these books". Tara is an author that writes about men who really like women, and who fall in love for great reasons. The books are fun, fast and super steamy, and after Quinn you get Christian in Crazy Cool!!
Why, oh why did I wait so long to read this series? I absolutely loved this whole book and after reading it devoured each succesive book in the series... LOVED THEM ALL!
I really enjoyed this book. If you liked the movie "The Fast and the Furious" with all the cool (or should I say hot) cars, you'll love this book. This book kept moving right along, with a lot of suspense and attraction between the hero and heroine. This is the start of the series.
Great book. First in 6 book series.
