Sometimes fate brings you together...only to tear you apart
Growing up in the foster system, Quinn O'Meara made a point of never getting involved. But when she discovers a crying baby amid a fiery crime scene, she knows she has no choice. Suddenly in way over her head, Quinn turns to the police, unintentionally positioning herself in the crosshairs of a deadly human-trafficking ring.
The last time homicide detective Nick Saldano saw Quinn, she was still the young girl he'd shared a foster home with. The girl who'd loved and cared for him when no one else had. Now here she was, gorgeously all grown-up--and in terrible danger.
Unwilling to lose her again, Nick insists on keeping Quinn close, especially when the bond they once shared heatedly slides into desire. Quinn finally has someone worth holding on to, but what kind of future can they have when she might not live to see tomorrow?
There aren’t enough words in the dictionary that I could use to describe how much I enjoyed Sharon Sala’s Race Against Time. It was a great love story. It was filled with action and suspense. It was funny and sad. It was sexy and emotional. Above everything else, it was hard to put down.
Race Against Time is the story of Starla Davis who ended up getting caught up in a human trafficking ring after she snuck out to see a boy she met online when she was seventeen-years-old. After seven years, Starla along with her toddler son attempts to escape her captor Anton Baba with the help of an undercover FBI agent. Things go horribly wrong and there is a fiery car accident that separates Starla from her son, Sammy. In comes drifter/orphan Quinn O’Meara. She rescues Sammy and finds herself on Baba’s radar. Quinn is an emotionally damaged but beautiful redhead who drives a Harley. She makes it to the police station in Las Vegas but not without injury. She ends up garnering protection from a LVPD officer named Nick Saldano. Quinn and Nick soon realize that they have a history that goes back to when they were both in foster care as children. That connection pulls them together like magnets and Nick does everything he can to protect Quinn and bring down the man who is now after her.
Race Against Time was a testament to strong women everywhere who decide that they will no longer be victims. Both Starla and Quinn demonstrate courage as they fight to survive the wrath of Baba. There is a lot of pain and suffering that they both endured through their lives, yet they manage to survive it all despite the shortcomings of the FBI who fail miserably in their attempts to assist. However, LVPD and the Nevada State Troopers do an awesome job with their roles in aiding these two exemplary women. Be advised that this is most definitely a tearjerker because the author really shows how horrible humanity can be. On the other hand, witnessing all of the emotion only helped to solidify my admiration. I look forward to reading other books by Sharon. She really knows how to get under your skin.
