Review: Get On by Regina Cole

Only Mia Bartholomew could attend a body mod convention and end up at an illegal street race, running from the boys in blue. So what’s a hot-blooded Latina piercer to do? Jump on the first motorcycle out of there, that’s what. She’s got a career to think about, after all.

Of course, that motorcycle would have to belong to a crazy-cute ex-cop with a broken heart and a burning vendetta. Garrett Long’s former girlfriend was a casualty of his last case. He won’t rest until he punishes her murderer, a drug-running trust-fund kid with the DA in his pocket.

Garrett and Mia try to go their separate ways, but their animalistic attraction simply won’t fade. And the sex? Best. Ever. Though their fiery passion really couldn’t have picked a worse time to flare—Garrett’s target is upping his game, leaving him with a choice. Die for revenge? Or live for Mia?

Mia Bartholomew hitches a ride on Garrett Long’s motorcycle to escape a police bust at an illegal street race and is thrown head first into his plot for revenge. With his three friends, Garrett is attempting to catch the man who murdered his previous girlfriend. It is proving tricky though since the criminal’s Dad has deep pockets and friends in high places. But that won’t stop Garrett from trying or possibly turning his back on Mia to achieve his revenge.

This book has a nice fast pace. Once Mia and Garrett meet and ball starts to roll, we don’t have much of a break till about 80% of the way through. At that point the story seemed to stall for me since Garrett and Mia were just hanging in his house for about a week. Mia and Garrett never seem to address the fact that she basically moved in with him, they just sort of flowed together. I would have liked to be a fly on the wall more when they were home. We get one good sex scene but I wanted more. Garrett was very creative with Mia and I would have liked to see more of that side of him.

Mia really carries this story. She was fun and quirky but not afraid to stand up for herself and try new things. She was also pretty trusting since she goes with Garrett without learning his name and has sex with him the first night she meets him. But from his description I can see why she was tempted. It also seemed a bit far-fetched that they would indulge in anal sex the second time they were together (and probably hadn’t known each other 24 hours yet) without the benefit of a bed, privacy or lube.

I think one of my favorite aspects of this story was the friends ship between Garrett and his three best friends. We only get a small glimpse into their dynamic and I would have liked to have seen more of them. Little tid bits were dropped about how they all had some secret or issues that helped bond them and I would like to learn more about them. Hopefully there will be future books dealing with those characters.
