About Fast Track: Cordelia Kane has always been a daddy’s girl—her father raised her alone after her mother died in a car crash when Cordelia was just two years old. So when he has a serious heart attack, Cordelia is devastated, and the emotion is only intensified by the confusion she feels when he reveals the shocking truth about her mother.

Cordelia can’t suppress her curiosity about the woman who gave birth to her, and when she discovers the answers to her questions lie in Sydney, Australia, she travels there to get them.

Hotel magnate Aiden Madison is Cordelia’s best friend’s older brother. He’s oblivious to the fact that she’s had a crush on him for years. When he gets railroaded into taking her along to Sydney on his company jet, he unknowingly puts her life at risk. He’s recently angered a powerful congressman by refusing to purchase overvalued land. Congressman Chambers is not a man to let such an offense slide, and he has the resources to get even and to get what he wants.

In Australia sparks are flying between Cordelia and Aiden, but multiple attempts on Aiden’s life are made while Cordelia is with him, and he realizes he must put a stop to the madness before he loses the thing he values most.

Julie Garwood is one of those authors who rarely disappoints. I know when I pick up one of her books I should settle in for the long haul because I won’t be able to put the book down. Fast Track was no exception to this. I immediately fell in love with both Aiden and Cordelia.

Aiden was truly an alpha male hero and though his high handed ways made me sign in exasperation he was just so darn charming while doing it I had to love him. Trust me, Cordelia felt the same way which made the book all the more enjoyable because I felt like I almost shared this bond with her character.

Cordelia herself was just as endearing. She has her own insecurities but she didn’t harp on them to the point of irritation. Instead I felt I could sympathize with her and root for her to overcome these insecurities.

The story itself had me totally engrossed to see what would happen next and I loved the supporting cast of characters. We get to see some of our past favorites and met some new ones. Cordelia’s hoodlum students cracked me up and I loved the part they played in the story. I also am hoping to read Liam’s story soon (and there had better be one!).

Truly a 5 star read that everyone needs to read.
