Baby Girl

I have been waiting for Diesel’s book since the first time he called Tracey “baby girl”. Running on Diesel was EVERYTHING I was wanting in Tracey and Diesel’s story; the push/pull bantering, the emotions, and all the sexy times. Melissa, you have outdone yourself with this book.

An awkward read

I don’t know if it was the writing style or starting the series in the middle with this book but I struggled to stay interested & finish

Another hit from Melissa!

Another hit from Melissa! Diesel and Tracey have skated around each other since they both got to town and started working at the bar together, but neither have made a move. With Tracey recovering from a previously abusive relationship, and Diesel continuing to live a nomadic life after the death of his mother, it seems that neither are ready to get involved with each other, until they finally do. As they start to become involved with each other thanks to an attack on Tracey, it’s clear to her that it would be a short-term thing, since Diesel is destined to leave, and she works to make sure she protects her heart as much as possible for that time. Protective of her, he works to do everything he can to ensure her safety and make her happy, so he tracks down those who attacked her while also tracking down her mother in order to reunite them. What surprises Diesel is that Tracey is protective of him, especially after the potential of him finding out who his father is and the relation to the group that he has chosen as family for decades. I loved this story and these characters, and I can’t wait to see who comes next in this book world!
