Her rudeness and ridiculous stubbornness aside, Leigh is just a regular girl trying to find her place in the world. She does make a lot of mistakes, and jumps quickly to conclusions, but the best part about her is that she does grow up…eventually. She learns to be nice, yes nice, and be more personable. She also learns that it’s okay to listen to one’s own heart and do whatever it is that makes one happy.
As for Max Morgan, he too makes mistakes, and learns from them, as well. He does a whole lot of growing up, but thank God, not at the same pace as Leigh, as that would have just been too bloody annoying. I LOVED that Max was very patient with Leigh and never pushed her into doing anything. He also wasn’t ashamed of his feelings for her. Perhaps the best part about him was that he NEVER gave up on Leigh
As for the chemistry between Max and Leigh, it was beyond incredible and they did have quite some sexy times ;)
I would have liked to have known more about Leigh’s life in the 4 years between her leaving, and coming back to, town. I also would have liked it if a certain family, the ones that inspire creepy feelings in people, could have been dealt with more.
But all those aside, I really enjoyed this book and look for more from Ms Siegel….especially Aaron and Beth’s story…they’re just too cute :)
Hot mechanic racer, check
Even hotter cars, check
QMH is a fast-paced ride full of chemistry, angst, and what ifs. Leigh Stone returns home dead set on avoiding Max 'manwhore' Morgan... but little does she know, if refuses to let her run... again!
Will they find love on the quarter mile or will love bite the dust?
Her vow is to never get involved with a racing driver, she's seen to much heartache. Not only did her Uncle die, but her mother left her father because racing got in the way of their relationship.
When her dad has an accident, she is forced to return to her home town that she tried to escape from 4 years prior.
Max Morgan is a racer with a reputation for loving the ladies, and other than a one night stand between them the night before she left, they have a tense relationship which involves lots of banter and insults flying between the two.
Max was gutted when she left, and despite never thinking he was good enough for her, he decides to persuade her to stay - he's doesn't want to let this second chance pass him by.
When a high stake bet goes wrong, Leigh has to race again to save her dad's garage and she is reminded of why she loved racing in the first place.

This was an OK story, and I feel that with a bit more character development and more detail, it could have been a lot more gripping. For instance, I never really knew what had happened to Leigh in the four years she'd been away, what did she do with her time, how had she grown as a person? Why did Max think she was out of his league? I had a lot of unanswered questions whilst reading.
I think the premise was great, but it slightly missed the mark for me and the lack of depth resulted in it being just an OK read for me.Read more ›
Max hides his true self from everyone because he is also hiding a broken heart. Nobody would guess he's pining for one woman, he hides is so well. That is until said woman comes back to town and he knows he's got one chance at making this work. But Max has an uphill battle to fight to win over Leigh's heart and let her give up her fears.
Leigh and Max are wonderful characters, they are strong willed and have deep convictions, they also have absolutely no control over their feelings for the other. Whether they are trying to annoy, piss off, or love, they put their hearts into it. The banter is delicious and this book shows how love springs hate springs love again.
Quarter Mile Hearts was a quick read, pulling you in with the action and adventure of racing and keeping you there with the passion of two people fighting not to give in, even though that's a lost cause. The fears are real and portrayed in such a way you can totally understand why Leigh acts teh way she does, but also you are rooting for her to get over it as well.

4.5 Stars. Quarter Mile Hearts is Leigh and Max's story. She doesn't date street racers and he is one. They had a one night stand four years ago and she left town. Read morePublished 2 months ago by jenn5125
The story was ok, but the author really needs to do better research into her subject matter. First, there is no such thing as a 2009 camaro. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Vicki Miley
