My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Julie Garwood’s historical romances are still my go-to books for re-reading and comfort. Her contemporary novels do not hold the same magic but still retains the some charm. Fast Track is touted as romantic suspense but if you have been reading the previous books in the series, you know there’s not too much suspense or mystery everything is fairly evident early on but the romance part of it is usually the exciting element of the book. Here the chemistry between Aiden and Cordelia was not as stirring but I still loved the witty and sassy dialogue banter between the 2 of them.
Any of these books can be read as standalone’s even though they are part of the series except that some of the characters do repeat in some books. The stories are mostly similar but if one is looking for some lighthearted easy romance with a dash of suspense, Fast Track is exactly the answer.

A corrupt congressman, a mother’s secrets, and a sizzling romance ignite passion and suspense in the new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Julie Garwood.
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.
