Joanna Robinson is competing in a charity race against Miles McClintock, a sexy PI she has a history with.  She’s determined to win first place, preventing Miles from winning for the fourth year in a row and earning the most money for her charity.  Miles takes every opportunity to flirt with her and drive her crazy during the race, though.  Who will win their battle of wills?

Go For Miles was a funny and surprising read.  I’m not usually a fan of the first-person narrator, but in this case Penny Dawn really made it work.  Joanna’s resistance to Miles seems reasonable at first because she paints him as a great lover, but a jerk.  As the story progresses, however, Joanna slowly reveals that her association with Miles is a lot more complicated than it seemed at first.  I liked the way Miles’ character became clearer both through Joanna’s revelations and his actions in the story.  And what’s not to like about a character who’s described as “MacGyver-meets-Billy-the-Kid?”  The chemistry between Miles and Joanna was hot, and I liked the race angle.  The only thing I didn’t like about this story was some of Miles’ dialogue near the end, which was kind of chauvinistic and cheesy.  Overall, though, Go For Miles is a quick, fun read, and great for a hot summer afternoon!
