    Fabulous book!

    My Review:
    This book starts off with a serious bang. I was partway into the second chapter when I turned to my husband and told him about how stunned I was by how much action and emotion had already occurred in this story. It does slow down a bit after that, but honestly, not by much. This is a book about racing and I know that for me, my emotions and heart-rate were racing throughout most of the book. It's a great book and definitely one that I enjoyed.

    Tracey has had a hard time of it...pretty much her whole life has been a series of really bad events. She grew up in the foster system after her adoptive parents died when she was 2 years old. She found her place and acceptance at the racetrack with her friends Eddie and Matthew. Four years ago (at the age of 19,) it seemed like things were finally going her way when someone threw a water balloon filled with oil in front of her race car on the track which caused a horrific crash. It has taken her 4 years to recover and come back from that. It seems things are finally back on track for her when her crew chief and father figure, Joe, suddenly dies at the track. Suddenly, Tracey's life is thrown into chaos especially when they find out that Joe was murdered. Someone is stalking Tracey.

    When Mac comes on the scene, he is stepping into a really difficult situation. It's a last-minute change and he doesn't know Tracey or the team. Mac and Tracey clash at every turn about every single thing. She's already on edge with Joe's death. Their conflict is not making anything any easier, but Tracey is not a back-down kind of gal. She's tough and in your face when she doesn't agree. Honestly, Mac is completely confused about how to handle her, but as things heat up with her stalker, so do the feelings between her and Mac. Their chemistry soon becomes combustible.

    This is a romantic suspense and the suspense and tension builds all the way through the book. There was a single point, about 2/3 of the way in, when I had a moment where I felt like the conflict between Mac & Tracey became too much, but it didn't last long before I got carried away within the story again. The action sequences in this are fabulous...both the suspense-driven ones AND the romance-driven ones!

    There is a secondary story which I loved just as much as the primary between Matthew (Tracey's childhood friend and pit crew member) and Chelsea (Tracey's long lost twin sister.) I loved the way that Dee wrote the story so that you were never quite sure where Chelsea stood as far as the suspense line...I definitely kept second-guessing her motives and the clues that the author provided.

    Overall, this was just a great read. I am, admittedly, a race fan, so I loved that aspect of the story, but I think that just about anyone would enjoy this book for the romance and the suspense. I don't think that you need to have an affinity for the sport to be able to appreciate this book. If you like the Erin McCarthy Fast Track series, you DEFINITELY need to try out these books by Dee Adams!!

    Exciting from the green to the checkered flag

    At the photo-finish, I would give this 4.5 out of five stars. Despite my personal loathing for the world of auto-racing, Dangerous Race wrapped me up in it. Adams made me smell the ethanol and *like* it. I believed in the lead character, Trace, and her bumpy romance with her new crew chief. My only issue was I thought the villain was too obvious, and there should have been more politicking behind the scenes re: his personal goals. A pit crew is big - we should have seen more of the others being manipulated and taking sides, perhaps being used as unwitting stooges. However, the romance and sex scenes were deliciously steamy, there was enough humor without spoiling the tension, and the "feel" was right. I am looking forward to more by this author.

    A "Hold on to the Edge of Your Seat" Thrill Ride

    I haven't read Romantic Suspense in quite a while, and then I had to pick this one up. It sounded so good and best of all, it didn't disappoint. This was a kick ass book with incredibly well written characters. I went back and forth several times trying to figure out who amongst the cast of potential baddies was the bad guy. It was a "hold on to the edge of your seat" thrill ride. Two love stories in one book was a HUGE bonus. Cannot wait for Dee J. Adam's next release.
