About the book:

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.

Review:

Quarter Mile Hearts is a wonderful romance story. When Leigh Storm gets the call about her father being in the hospital, she doesn’t hesitate to come back home. Once she finds out that his injuries were from a race, it enrages her because racing has broken up her family in more ways than one. Racing has caused death and loss which is why she walked away from her hometown four years ago. Now that she is back, can she leave it alone or will racing take over her heart? There is just one person that stands in her way with every turn that she makes…Max ‘Manwhore’ Morgan. After a quick fling before leaving four years ago, her life has been empty. Is Max the same person that she remembers or has he changed? My favorite characters in this story are Max and Leigh. These two are so good for each other, yet everyone else sees their potential before they do. I am happy that these characters were able to engage my interest and captivate my emotions. I am from a small town where my family were all raised as racers. My grandfather raced, my father and uncle raced and my brothers raced. I saw first-hand what racing does to people and I decided that I could never allow myself to get wrapped up in that. I enjoyed reading about the strengths and weaknesses that the characters in this story possessed. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this author’s work. This author is creative, original and the book is very lively. I felt like I was right there in their world, watching Leigh’s life unfold in front of my eyes. I rate Quarter Mile Hearts with five stars because it moved me. The mood and pace of the story are steady and the characters are well developed and exceptionally easy to relate to.
