Quarter Mile Hearts - Jenny Siegel - Blog Tour and Review

Title: Quarter Mile Hearts: An American Muscle Novel

Author: Jenny Siegel

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: July 7, 2015

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.

3.5 stars

In Quarter Mile Hearts, Leigh Storm is a young woman living away from home and she is coasting through life. When her Dad is injured, she goes home to be there for him and help with the family business. Coming home brings her back into contact with Max, the sexy street racer she secretly loves.
I liked both Leigh and Max, but I didn’t always understand why they acted the way they did. I don’t know if I have forgotten what it’s like to be 24 or 25, but there seemed to be lots of drama for the sake of drama as they worked their way to being together. Max’s character is one that I definitely liked more as I got to know him and he explained some of reasons behind his actions and some things that were misconceptions.
The world of cars and street racing isn’t one that I am familiar with and the author did a great job of introducing that world in such a way that it was fun and not overwhelming. This was definitely a good book, I just had a little bit of trouble relating to some of the characters, but I honestly think it may have been my own frame of reference that was part of the issue. 

Jenny Siegel writes new adult romance. When she's not writing (or entertaining two little terrors) Jenny is glued to her Kindle, or plotting (also known as daydreaming) about hot tattooed heroes that will sweep a girl off her feet.
