REVIEW/RELEASE: Quarter Mile Hearts by Jenny Siegel

Genre: Contemporary Romance


Following an accident injuring her dad, twenty-four year old Leigh Storm returns home to the town she was once so desperate to escape.

It is only a matter of hours before she runs into Max 'Manwhore' Morgan. Dark eyed and dangerous to her heart, he is the very last person she wants to see. It might have been four years since she saw him last, but there's no denying the chemistry between them is as potent as ever. Max makes it clear he isn't about to let her run again, even if he is the one thing Leigh vowed to herself she
would never date: a street racer.

After racing tore apart her own family and left a path of destruction in its wake, Leigh decided long ago that it is not the life she wants for herself. But when a wager gone wrong threatens her dad's livelihood, Leigh must go against everything she believes in.

This time there's more at stake on the quarter mile that just the family business-She's risking her heart as well. 

~Book Review~
4 Stars
Leigh Storm returns to her hometown after four years when a street racing accident lands her father in the hospital. She isn’t home long though when old sparks that were never extinguished flare up again between her and racer Max “Manwhore” Morgan.

Street racing has torn her family apart and Leigh proclaims to want no part of dating a street racer even if her panties are still wet from the one night she spent with her supposed nemesis Max.
“‛Do you still remember how it felt to have me inside you?’”
Leigh and Max have chemistry right from the beginning and Max, while appearing to be a bit of a womanizer, is pretty panty-melting when he interacts with Leigh.  The author does a good job with presenting Leigh’s dilemma and making her relatable.  If I was in her shoes too I would have been torn between Max’s reputation and the way he made her feel/the connection they seemed to share.  But thankfully Max is more of a flirt than a true manwhore so this isn’t a story about him breaking her heart but, in fact, about him winning it!  He’s actually a pretty swoon-worthy hero and makes quite the book boyfriend. I just love stories where the guy is focused on getting his girl and that’s some of the best scenes of the book. 
“Did you have to go there? Seriously don’t talk about you bending over in that dress or ever. I can’t deal with the mental images that conjures up.”
This is a story about returning to your roots and looking past appearances and pre-conceived misperceptions. The supporting characters, Leigh and Max’s friends and family, round out the story well and are all likeable additions to the plot. There were a few places where it felt like the plot had some loose ends but overall it’s an enjoyable read.
