    This review was posted at Riverina RomanticsThe second book in the Adrenaline Highs series was a definitely a hit for me. This is my first read by author Dee J. Adams and I really liked it. Her writing style is professional, clear and easy to enjoy. The seduction and heat start to simmer early on between Quinn and Ellie, with romantic one liners popping up all the time. Although the book was reasonably predictable (which is sometimes hard not to be in contemporary romance IMO) Dee J. Adams keeps you entertained the entire way. There is always something happening, either a dramatic scene or pages of hot between the sheets action. I enjoyed both Ellie and Quinn. Ellie with her strength and smarts, even though she is dyslexic and Quinn for his quick change from player to a man dedicated to one woman alone. They were great together.I'm also a big fan of celebrity romances but this one was quite different. Ellie wasn't a superstar- she was a hollywood stunt woman and although Quinn was a billionaire - he was rich via his racing car corporation. So it was a refreshing twist on a common storyline.

    Danger Zone by Dee J. Adams has all of the high-octane excitement of a hot Hollywood car chase movie. And so it should. But Adams' story is much, much better, because Danger Zone is terrific romantic suspense, and more than satisfies on both the romantic and the suspenseful sides.Quinn Reynolds has flown all the way from London to Hollywood to deliver an ultimatum to his older brother, Mac. Two years ago, Mac dropped the running of their business, Formula One Design, in Quinn's lap, while Mac returned to the U.S. to lead the pit crew for his wife's racing team.Trace Bradshaw, Mac's wife, is a top racer on the Formula Circuit in the U.S. Mac and Trace are in Hollywood filming her life story, which includes not just a horrific and nearly life-ending accident, but also a crazed and murderous stalker. The movie (and Adams' first book - Trace's and Mac's story) is titled Dangerous Race (reviewed here).Mac is busy when Quinn shows up on the set. Mac is always busy. It's the story of their lives. Mac has acted more as Quinn's father than his brother. While waiting around for Mac and watching the movie sets, Quinn literally bumps into Ellie Morgan, the stuntwoman playing the role of Trace in all the racing (and fighting and nearly dying) scenes of the movie.Ellie is the first woman Quinn has felt attracted to since his own car accident six months previously. Ellie's the first person who has made him feel anything good since that accident. Even though Quinn is only going to be in L.A. for two weeks, he pursues Ellie relentlessly, just like the playboy he used to be.Ellie doesn't want a playboy. And she doesn't do casual relationships. Even though she is very attracted to Quinn, she knows she isn't capable of giving her body to a man without letting him into her heart. And since Quinn will only be around for a couple of weeks, any relationship they might have is doomed from the start.But Ellie's roommate Ashley thinks that Ellie should let herself have a good time, just for once. Even more than that, Ashley thinks that Quinn is "the One". The real one for Ellie, in spite of his playboy manners and his seeming wealth. Quinn has a limo and a driver, while Ellie and Ashley share an apartment. Ellie and Quinn couldn't be more different.But Ellie has a secret. Ashley is her lifeline. Ashley allows her to function. Because Ellie is dyslexic.Quinn's never made a secret of why he is in L.A. He wants, no he demands that Mac let him sell their company. They each own half, so they have to agree. Mac was a Formula racer before he had an accident. Then he ran the company until he met Trace and dropped it on Quinn. Mac loves cars and racing. Quinn's made the company a success, but he doesn't love it and never has. He wants out. But big brother won't discuss the issue.Meanwhile, someone is in L.A. stalking Quinn, because he wants to make sure the "right" company buys that company. That stalker starts staging "accidents" in order to take Quinn out of the picture. But he keeps missing Quinn and gets Ellie's roommate Ashley instead. Without her lifeline, with her best friend in the hospital in a coma, Ellie turns to Quinn.But can they survive long enough to learn each others secrets?Escape Rating A: What makes Danger Zone so good are the people and their relationships. Quinn and Ellie are folks you would like to know in real life, you feel for them and the issues they deal with. Their romance is plenty hot and steamy, and it's fun to watch them court and spark, but the author also made them easy to empathize with.Dyslexia is a difficult problem for many people. Ellie fear of revealing her secret and the ridicule she will potentially face is made real for the reader. And there's irony in that. If I suffered from dyslexia, how difficult would it be for me to read Ellie's story?I hope the next book in this series (Dangerously Close) is Ashley's book. I really like that girl, and she so deserves her own happily ever after!

    My ReviewThis is a hard review to write. I really loved book #1 in this series, Dangerous Race, and this book didn't quite measure up to the quality of that book. It was entertaining and was a riveting read, but there were a few things that interfered with my overall rating on the book.What I liked:*this book is HOT. Dee's descriptions of Quinn during those intimate scenes...whoa! just...whoa!!*The action sequences in this book are WONDERFUL. So well-written. They definitely get your adrenaline going...and you're just the reader!*okay, I loved, loved, LOVED Mac from book 1, Dangerous Race. In this book, he is a jerk. He and Quinn are at complete odds through this book, but I liked that conflict. It made Quinn a more real person.*the secrets that both of these characters are hiding worked for me. I thought that they really enhanced the story line.*I loved Quinn's overwhelming reactions when Ellie is in danger (see the first point above...hehe.) This is a guy that when he gets emotional, he goes all alpha and it is sexy as hell.*I was hooked on the book. It kept me completely engaged and I did not want to put it down once the story started ramping up.*LOVED Quinn's character...just everything about him. My heart aches for him and his issues growing up and with Mac.What I disliked:*it took a while for the story to get going, for me personally. I would have liked it more if the action or even hints of the action were made earlier in the book.*there were points within the story where the dialogue seemed a bit cliche'd...and I realize some of that was done on purpose. Ellie is always giving Quinn a hard time about his playboy ways. There were just moments where I was rolling my eyes at the dialogue or inner-dialogues of the characters.*At times the conflict just seemed too easy and contrived, but that is most definitely a personal, subjective thing (as are ALL parts of these reviews...hehe)*I wasn't a huge fan of Ellie's character. Honestly, I have no idea why except for how long she put off Quinn. I just wanted to kick her when she continued to see him as a playboy. I know that it's easy to sit as a reader and "see" it all, but she took too long to come around for my way of thinking.I still consider myself to be a fan of Dee's writing. I cannot wait to see where she goes from here.

    This is the second book in the series, but while we get to brush up against the characters we loved in Dangerous Race, this book works beautifully as a stand alone.Ellie Morgan is a professional stuntwoman at the top of her game - except for one teensy handicap, that her best friend Ashley has helped her cover up since high school. She. Can't. Read. She's dyslexic, but nobody figured it out, just passed her along, while managing to trash her self-esteem by taunts and scoldings about how stupid she was.When Quinn Reynolds comes onto her latest set, he makes an ass of himself. Later, there's incredible heat between the two of them, but... he's returning to England in two weeks, and Ellie doesn't do casual sex.But when it seems someone is trying to kill him - or is it her? They find themselves thrown together in those adrenaline high situations that lead inevitably to bed.And love, even if that wasn't on the agenda, either.This book moves, it includes some exciting stunts and very steamy sex between two people who find a way to make it work in the end.

    What a Rush!Being a stunt woman in Hollywood isn't the easiest or most reliable of occupations, but Ellie Morgan has built a solid reputation in her ten-year career. She's good at it. She enjoys it. But her newest gig as stunt double for the star of the movie about female race car driver Trace Bradshaw gave her the first opportunity to get behind the wheel of a race car. And the moment she's in the driver seat, screaming around the track at over a hundred miles an hour, Elle has a moment of perfect clarity. She knows, beyond question, what she was meant to do. She was born to race.That thrill, that drive to follow a dream newly born but bright with hope, motivates Elle like nothing else. It makes her acknowledge that it's time for a change in her life. And it forces her to accept that to go in this particular direction with her career, she's going to have to tackle one particular demon that's haunted her since childhood.But not before she wraps up this job, this movie.Quinn Reynolds is fed up with his brother ducking him and he flew from London to California to tell him so, and to get Mac to finally agree to sell the company the brothers had inherited from their father. Quinn wants out. For two years he's slaved over that company, expanding it into the multi-million dollar industry leader that it is today, but Quinn's done. He's done with London. He's done with the company, and most important, he's done with the race cars they make and the entire sport of car racing. Facts he's more than willing to choke his brother with as soon as he gets him alone, a feat that seems far easier said than done.Frustrated by his lack of success, desperate to unwind, he chats up a sexy blonde beauty at the bar he and his family had chosen to dine. Doesn't look like his luck is going any better with the fairer sex when she turns out to be the stunt woman doing all the dangerous stunts that his sister-in-law had lived through years ago. A stunt woman he had actually been introduced to that morning...and who had overheard him dish out to the lead actress the same cheesy line he'd just used on her.So...it's California...where are all those earthquakes when you need the ground to open up and swallow you?While the dance between a persistent man and a resistant woman heats up, a dark presence observes from the shadows. Plotting, planning, and fueled by rage, his target will have to be eliminated. And if that target can't seem to be more than five feet from the blonde floozy at any given time, he'll off her too. He will not be denied. Regardless of how much blood he has to spill or how many lives he has to take to get what he wants.~*~Dee J. Adams is back with another high octane romantic suspense that delivers thrills, chills, and scorching romance! I love her characters, her writing style, the uniqueness of the plots, and the visceral reality she manages to imbue in the descriptions of her books' settings and in her characters' lives. And with this book, she's created one of the most original connecting threads between two books in a series I've ever read. I thought the idea of the main characters meeting on location of the filming of a movie based on the characters and events in the first book was pretty damn ingenious. I loved that!And since I'm spreading the love, I don't want to skimp on how much I adored Elle and appreciated her very real issues. Adams created the perfect emotional storm in Elle's past, paired it with a learning disorder, and came up with a character both believable and realistic. The emotional impacts of illiteracy and the glimpses of the necessary, labor-intensive work-arounds Elle must incorporate into her daily life to cope with her disability and hide it from the world were brilliant, poignant, and tragic.Her illiteracy did not, however, define her as a person. Nor was it in any way used to make her seem less a person, not as intelligent, not as worthy. Quite the opposite, actually. I just loved her. She is strong, brutally disciplined, independent, confident...and also vulnerable, dependent, insecure. The sheer scope of her personality and the range of her emotional make-up was impressive.Honestly, as much as I liked Quinn...eventually...he was a bit dimmer a star than Elle in this book for me. I didn't like him much at first, and had some big concerns with his seeming selfishness. He does show up at a movie set he knows his brother is working at and expects him to sort of drop everything to give him the time of day. That struck me as a bit entitled and immature. But then he started interacting with Elle and either my feelings warmed towards him or he was genuinely changed by his relationship with her, because he ended up being a solid, dependable man in Elle's life...and was both a softy and a real sweetheart. Oh...and sexy. He was definitely all about the sexy.Together they burned up the pages and their romance sizzled even as it emotionally satisfied.For all that I liked the plot, which I thought was more streamlined and focused than its predecessor, and thoroughly enjoyed the characters and their relationship, I have to admit, the book started a little slow for me. I was about a quarter of the way in before I felt it really hit its stride. Once it did, I was totally on board for the ride, but the developing pieces of the plot and the initial character introductions seemed a bit clunky for me up until then, and the story started off slightly slower-paced than I would have liked. After the shocking, heart-stopping beginning that was in Adams' debut, this one was far more sedate. A little too sedate.I also had some trouble with the suspense plot threads in this book, one I didn't have in the previous book. While I felt the action scenes that resulted from the Bad Guys actions were awesome and the emotional impact from the damage BG inflicts was gut-wrenching, he never had much of a presence in the narrative. When he did, he didn't seem terribly effective, at least not in a way that inspired concern, fear, or horror in the lead characters. They didn't even know there was a threat until late in the book. While I suppose there was opportunity for readers to be concerned for the main characters, without the characters themselves being concerned for themselves or knowing of a particular threat, it didn't seem that suspenseful to me.That issue didn't detract much from the read for me, though. I liked the characters too much, and was too swept up in their romance to care overmuch about it. Elle and Quinn were a delight to my romance-loving heart, and Adams writes hot, sensual sex scenes that burn the pages they grace. When combined with the freshness in the setting and story and the personal issues each of them face, Adams' sophomore effort is another heart-pounding thrill ride of pure reading entertainment.Disclosure: An ARC of this book was provided to me by Carina Press via NetGalley.

    Review copy provided via NetGalleyDangerous RaceWhy I Read this Book: After reading , the first book in this series, I knew I wanted more. I love romantic suspense and I enjoyed the author’s writing style so I’m keeping an eye open for more books by Dee J. Adams. And I love reading about women dominating in ‘man’s world’ industry, like race car driving. What I Liked: The hero and heroine. I liked both of these characters and I liked them for each other. I couldn’t help but appreciate Quinn’s reliability and nobility because he was stuck running the family business when he had no desire to do so. He was never really given the choice; it was just given to him. But he put in his all and made the company successful because his livelihood wasn’t the only one on the line.I loved Ellie and Ashley’s bond. When Ellie’s own family wasn’t there for her, she found a great support system in Ashley and her mom. Speaking of Ashley, that girl made me laugh. I would love to see Ashley get her own book. After what she went through in Danger Zone, she deserves a HEA of her own.And can I hear it for the heroine who doesn’t drink? Yay! Okay, okay, this may sound crazy to most but being a non-drinker myself (never have, never will – and no, it’s not a religious thing) I can appreciate this quality in a character.I got to ‘catch up’ a bit with Trace and Mac (the heroine and hero from the first book) without them hogging up too much page time.What I Didn’t Like: I didn’t understand the reasoning behind Ellie’s decision during the vehicle accident on the way to Barstow. The accelerator in the vehicle she was driving got stuck. Quinn told her to down shift (car has a manual transmission) but she said “it doesn’t feel right”. When I was reading this part, I was screaming in my head F*CK THE TRANNY, GRIND THE GEARS! and then PUT THE CAR IN NEUTRAL AND HIT THE BRAKES! But Ellie doesn’t do either of those things. She does something so overly dramatic, so over-the-top. (I don’t want to spoil this part so I won’t say what actually happens.) I get that Ellie’s a stuntwoman by occupation, but stunt people take calculated risks and this was out of character for Ellie. It was a minor glitch and I bet most readers will probably overlook this. But for someone like me, who worked in the automotive industry for over a decade, I can’t help but notice these types of things. The scene was intense enough as it was; this extra unnecessary risk wasn’t needed in my opinion. (I had similar beef with the heroine from the first novel for taking an unnecessary risk as well.)Another thing that bugged me was that the reasoning for Ellie’s handicap was not provided until almost the very end of the book. The handicap itself was revealed pretty early on so every time the handicap was mentioned, I couldn’t understand why or how she had the handicap in the first place and it distracted me.Memorable Moments: I loved Ellie’s and Ashley’s conversations:“Oh! My! God!” Ashley’s frantic words brought Ellie out of her date-daze. “What? What’s wrong?” “That kiss,” she finally blurted. “Oh my, God, did you see that kiss?” Ellie exhaled with a smile. “See it? I was in on it.” Quinn checking out Ellie’s classic Mustang while Ellie was checking out Quinn’s rear end:“Looks like you’ve done some work to the interior.” he said. She removed her gaze from his posterior. “A little….” Overall Impression: Danger Zone held my attention from page one. I was hooked into the plot, the characters, and the outcome. I’m looking forward to the next book in this series.

    3-3.5 starsThis was a good story. I liked both Ellie and Quinn (with reservations) and their story was good overall.Ellie is a stuntwoman and has been working as a stuntwoman since she graduated from high school. She grew up with parents that didn't really pay attention to her after her older brother died. Ellie has dyslexia and had major problems reading in school. Unfortunately, she was a skilled athlete and this prompted her teachers to pass her even though she was pretty much illiterate. Quinn runs his family's Formula One race car company and has been doing a great job at it. The problem is that the company was the baby of Quinn's father and brother (Mac from book #1) and Quinn really has no interest in running the company. Unfortunately, Mac doesn't really care what Quinn wants and is trying to force Quinn to keep running the company whether he wants to or not.Quinn has gotten fed up with Mac avoiding his efforts to talk about selling the company so he flies to California for 2 weeks to try to talk to Mac in person. They're in California because there's a film being made about Mac's wife's career as a race car driver. When Quinn arrives, Mac still does his best to avoid Quinn and Quinn ends up with extra time on his hands. Quinn used to be a player stopped after he was in a car accident around 6 months ago. He actually tries when he gets to LA, thinking to pick up his old habits but finds that they leave a bad taste in his mouth. Unfortunately, Ellie sees his player-like moves and automatically places him in that stereotype and she doesn't easily let him out of it.Quinn realizes pretty quickly that Ellie isn't just someone he wants as a one night stand and nothing else. I mean at first he was all about a quicky but it doesn't take long for him to realize that Ellie affected him much stronger than any other woman he'd met before. Figuring out how he's going to handle her being special to him isn't as quick. Ellie figures out that she misjudged Quinn early on so I found it rather frustrating that she still insisted on thinking the worst of him most of the time. They end up spending time together and find things about each other that they both like and that encourages their relationship. Neither of them see their relationship as something lasting but they both want to spend as much time with each other as they can before the eventual split. While this is going on, Quinn fights with his brother and there's an issue with someone trying to kill Quinn and/or Ellie. Thankfully, Ellie and Quinn get through their drama and danger mostly unscathed and end the story starting a HEA together.Overall, this was an enjoyable story. I will say that in general, I liked Ellie. I think I would have loved her but I got annoyed that she constantly assumed the absolute worst of Quinn and wouldn't give him a chance to prove her wrong until her attempts to drive him off didn't work. It wasn't until the end that she finally leveled with him about her reading issues and actually gave him a chance. Quinn bugged me a little in the beginning because he was trying to still be a player but he stopped that pretty quickly and I liked him much better once he did. The story itself was good and I liked it overall.* note - I listened to the audio version of this book. It was narrated by the author and she did a pretty good job.

    Review originally posted here: http://thebookpushers.com/2012/02/21/...I was really looking forward to this book, a little bit of suspense, some racing and movie stunts? It sounded like it would be a fast moving and engaging book that would keep me on my toes. Unfortunately for me, it just didn’t live up to my own hype.Ellie has been a stuntwoman in Hollywood since a teenager, but with her recent job behind the wheel of a race car, she is looking to get into a new career path. When she meets Quinn on the set of the movie, she tells herself that he is the last man she needs to get involved with, for reasons both in her past and her future. But Quinn can’t take no for answer, and pursues her until she gives into him.Quinn sees something in Ellie that he hasn’t seen in any other woman, and he wants the chance to be with her every second he has, even though he’ll only be in town on business for a few weeks. But when things start to go wrong near Quinn and Ellie, they both begin to wonder if an unknown enemy is after one or the both of them.It took me awhile to get into this story, it didn’t pull me in right away and keep me engaged throughout. I found the stunt work to be interesting, but the suspense didn’t have me on edge like I was hoping it would.I also had a bit of a love/hate relationship with the main characters. I liked that Ellie is this strong woman, very confident in her work, and yet she has a secret in her past that cripples her in many ways. She wasn’t perfect by any means, but she obviously worked very hard to get to where she was in life. While I realize that her big secret is a real problem, I also don’t know how she became so successful. I had a hard time believing in it, especially with how driven Ellie was in all other areas in her life.I also was a little wishy-washy on Quinn. At first, he came across as a rich playboy who didn’t really seem to care much about anyone other than himself. Ellie did start to pull him out of his shell and had him thinking more with his big head instead of his little head, but he still acted somewhat childish towards his brother. I’m not a big fan of people who have seemingly everything, and still find reasons to complain. If Quinn really wanted to sell his company and move on, I would have liked to see him whine less and take more action.The suspense wasn’t one that kept me engaged either, and I was able to determine the villain somewhat quickly. I do have to say though, Adams did a wonderful job of creating some wonderful suspense situations that were written extremely well. I just wish they would have hooked me a bit more and kept me more on the edge of my seat.All in all this book was very average for me. It was well written and I did enjoy the slow building romance between Ellie and Quinn. They had some really sweet and tender moments together, and those were the parts I enjoyed the most. However, I didn’t enjoy it nearly as much as I had hoped.I give Danger Zone a C-

    Ellie Morgan is a stunt woman. Her latest movie is about a race car driver, and going around the track has her thinking that she was born to race. She is concealing some big secrets about her past. What she is hiding makes her think she is not good enough for more than she has so far. That includes a relationship with Quinn.Quinn Reynolds decides to get his older brother and co-owner in the family business, to sell Formula Racing Design because he is weary of running it. His playboy image might make it hard for his brother to listen to him seriously though. He is not sure what he wants to do after selling. He just knows he wants to be the one to choose it, and Ellie might be one of those choices.Ellie and Quinn meet on the set of the movie she is working on, and accidents start happening, one causing a tragedy, pushing them together. At first they think they are aimed at Ellie, but they did not start till she started spending more time with Quinn. They have to figure out what is going on before there is one “accident” too many.I loved this book, it has a ton of action in it. Some of the exchanges between Ellie and Quinn made me laugh, and the romantic ones between the two of them were very hot and intense. To me this story read like watching a really good movie. The audience has a good idea what is going to happen. It is predictable, but it is entertaining and exciting along the way. The characters of Ellie and Quinn feel so real. They both think their secrets hold them back, but they still find humor with themselves and each other no matter the seriousness of the situation. I am really looking forward to the next book, and wish I had the right words to describe all of the things that I thought were great. Official Review @ Coffee Time Romance & More

    Quinn Reynolds has lived in his brother's shadow and despite feeling like a huge disappointment, he's done what's expected of him. But now he wants to figure out just what he wants to do instead of being told what he should do by his brother. To do that, Quinn has to fly to California to confront his brother on a movie set for the filming of his brother and sister-in-law's story. His goal is to get his brother to agree to selling their company and getting on with his life. Problem is, someone doesn't want Quinn selling the company.Ellie Monroe is a woman with a huge secret. While she may be an awesome stunt woman and able to handle a race car like a professional driver, she often feels like she's a complete failure because of the secret she keeps. She keeps herself closed off from everyone, except her best friend, but soon she finds Quinn Reynolds breaking through her protection barrier.I really liked Quinn and Ellie. Both of them had a load of emotional baggage to deal with, not to mention Ellie's bias on Quinn's motives for being with her, but they were to characters that drew you in immediately. And if there baggage and how they dealt with it didn't draw you in, Quinn being their for Ellie while she dealt with a crushing emotional blow slapped right into love with Quinn.While the mystery around who was after Quinn for trying to sell the company wasn't much of a secret, the lengths the villain went through kept you wondering what he was going to do next.I was a bit disappointed that Mac came off as such a jerk when dealing with Quinn. I would have like to see a bit more closure between the brothers. I'm pretty sure a punch to the jaw wouldn't fix all the issues they had.While this story didn't revolve around racing, like Dangerous Race did, it was still exciting and definitely a sexy read.

    Blurb: In her ten-year career as a stuntwoman, Ellie Morgan has experienced her share of thrills. None compares to the rush of being behind the wheel of a race car for her latest movie shoot. Certain she was born to race, Ellie's ready to shift gears—but a secret from her past holds her back.Quinn Reynolds is tired of being in the driver's seat of his family's company, Formula Racing Design. He's ready to sell—if he can get his co-owner and brother, Mac, to agree. Quinn's not sure what he wants to do with his future, but almost as soon as he meets Ellie, he knows he wants her to be part of it.Though Ellie tries to resist her attraction to the charming businessman, she's quickly in danger of losing her heart. But after narrowly escaping "accidents" both on and off the set, it becomes clear that getting involved with Quinn could be downright deadly...Review: This was a book filled with romance, suspense, mystery and lots and lots of action. There were tears, laughter, disbelief and the requisite happily ever afters - several in fact although for a while it looked like we'd never get there. It was a quick paced read and the book was hard to put down. I stayed up late both nights reading when I should have been sleeping but it was so worth it. This is book 2 in the series and I haven't read book 1 so I will be looking for that book - Dangerous Race. I also hope this series will continue since there is so much more story to tell. The epilogue gave nice closure but also left the door open for us to learn more about the lives of Ellie, Quinn, Ashley, Trace and Mac. I have not read books by Adams before but look forward to reading many more books that she will write.Rating: 4 crownsThe RomCon Review Team received a free copy of this book from the author.

    I really loved this book. Quinn is a playboy living & working in London. Ellie is a stuntwoman in L.A working on a film depicting Quinn's sister-in-law's career. Quinn comes to the US to talk to his brother about their business face to face. Quinn falls for Ellie nearly immediately, but she turns him and all of his cheesy lines down flat. (Those lines are bad!) He's persistant and eventually she agrees to have dinner with him - via one of the cheesiest moves I have never had the privilage to see or experience. (I probably would have agreed, too.) It was fun to watch the romance/love develop during the story. I found myself laughing, shaking my head and getting frustrated at different points during this process. What does that mean? I was TOTALLY pulled into the book and out of reality. Kudos, Dee...not many books actually do that for me. And that was only while their relationship was developing. Add to that the making of the film, different stunts/locations, each of them unwilling to disclose their own secret to each other that would make them vulnerable (but also make all of the pieces fit together) and you have a great book. However, Dee J. Adams was not done - throw in an unknown person trying to kill one of the main characters and you have the stuntwoman doing all sorts of things in their real life in order to keep herself as well as Quinn alive. I did quess who the bad guy was, but it was like my 4th guess before I got it right. (Even more praise goes to Dee for that one!) The way he was taken down - I couldn't have seen that coming if I was standing there in the scene with them. Despite living on different continents, Quinn and Ellie are committed to their relationship and both of their career changes and relocations for their HEA. This was the first book I read by this author, but you can guarantee that I will be reading a lot more from her.

    This review was posted at Under The CoversThis was a pretty creative idea, the main idea of this book is that Hollywood is now making a movie of Tracy's story (from Dangerous Race).Ellie Morgan gets the part of the stunt woman during the filming. She's a confident young woman even though she's very dependent on her best friend and roommate Ashley. Quinn Reynolds is the younger brother of book one's hero, Mac. He comes into town from England to try and convince his brother to sell their company to a particular guy instead of a different bidder.But since his brother doesn't have a lot of time for him, he finds himself being extremely attracted to Ellie and makes his move right away to try and get with her while he's in town. Quinn is successful, wealthy, and GQ good looking. Ellie can't understand what he would want with her, especially after she makes it clear that she's not into one-night stands and she won't get be giving it up.But trouble follows Quinn. There's someone after him and they want him dead. While this person has attempted in the past, their efforts were not discovered. Now he keeps trying but there are other innocent bystanders who will be getting hurt.The story was a bit slow to get going, but even so it was cute and I think Quinn and Ellie were great together! And Quinn is verra sexy and hot!To me this series is light on the suspense but very well written which makes it enjoyable to read. They do have obstacles to get through in such a short period of time, but I have to say Quinn stood by Ellie the whole time. I am curious to see if there are more books in this series.

    Dee J Adams has offered another great installment in her Adrenaline High Series with Danger Zone. She’s taken an intriguing heroine with a personal secret and introduced her to a too-charming-for-his-own-good hero, then thrown in a villain who will stop at nothing. Amidst high drama, adventure, and action, Ellie and Quinn find each other in a believable progression from immediate physical attraction to emotional, heartfelt love. Stories such as this are the reason I love to read romance. Enjoy the unusual romantic suspense premise and solid writing from Ms. Adams.

    2.5 starsAverage book.The writing is good and has plenty of potential if used in the correct way.The plot is fairly predictable and might get boring at times.Not in the beginning but definitely towards the end.The characters are okay. I think the author could have done more with them, I'm pretty sure.I am also pretty sure I love Quinn.About Elle...I'm still unsure. She's okay in some places and slap worthy in others.An okay read.

    First off, there's no way that you can read DANGER ZONE and not fall in love with Quinn Reynolds! I read DANGER ZONE in two days. Couldn't put it down. Truly touching love story. Lovable characters with relatable inner conflicts. Great suspense and intense action. And, lots of A+ sex scenes:)

    This book is a great follow up to the first book in the series. Quin is a yummy hero, and Elle is one of the most well-written heroines I have read in a while. I can't recommend this book enough.

    this was a ride in of itself. The things that people will do just to get ahead. I thought Trace had issues. Mac and his brother had some serious aggression to get over.

    Although I missed the first book in this series, I had no problem reading Danger Zone as a standalone sequel. Thrilling, sexy, and a definite page-turner!
