Becky Peters is searching for her birth parents and thinks that maybe she is the missing daughter of one of NASCARs most famous families, the Grossos. Their daughter was kidnapped as an infant and there are rumours that she might still be alive. So Becky asks PI Jack McMasters, who represents the Grossos, to help her find out who she really is. Becky and Jack are attracted to each other right from the first moment and soon sparks fly between them but Jack wants to stay professional. Not only because of his own family connections to the Grossos but also because he is years older than Becky. But when somebody starts to hinder his investigation and even endangers Becky he can't hold back anymore. Jack is there to keep her safe, solve the mystery regarding her birth and give her what she wants most - a place to belong. "Within striking distance" is a great book. Becky and Jake are an unusual but awesome pair, I rooted for them right from the start and loved seeing them together. The mystery surrounding Becky's parents is solved on the last few pages (a good plus suprising end) and it's a very sweet scene when Becky finally meets her birthfather who couldn't be happier about it. "Within striking distance" is a great new add to the Harlequin NASCAR series and I can't wait to read more of it.
