Review-

The only reason I first got curious about Off the Rails was because of the cover. The gorgeous cover lead me to reading the summary which sounded interesting enough. Jill Sorenson is not an author I've read before but I'm always up for discovering new authors so I thought I'd give it a try. I'm just going to come out and say this, I was disappointed with Off the Rails. It was a very average read and I struggled a bit to actually finish it.

Okay so let's start with our hero, Ian. Ian is a border patrol agent and a few years ago he had rescued a young girl. They shared a connection and he hasn't been able to forget her even after years. But they both know that anything solid between them is impossible. Now I usually do really like second chance romances but this one lacked something. Ian was a nice guy. He wanted to secure his job and career while trying not to get distracted.

Our heroine is Maria. Maria was a sweet girl. She was determined to make the best out of her circumstances. She wanted to take care of he family and she was willing to do anything for it. Her attraction towards Ian was easy to see and her feelings for him were genuine. 

Off the Rails is more of a romantic suspense book, so while there was romance it definitely took a back seat at times. I didn't mind that. The whole book follows a third person point of view. Ian is trying to rescue and find the daughter of a drug lord while Maria is trying to save her brother. What I did get bored with was during the sub plot. It didn't matter to me and I wanted to get back to Ian and Maria's point of view. There was definitely some action and loads of danger thrown in parts. 

I didn't find Jill Sorenson's writing as engaging. It didn't keep me hooked to the book till the end. I wasn't as invested in Maria and Ian's story as I wanted to be. Some parts I liked and some parts I just wanted to get over with. Overall Off the Rails was a very average read for me and I'm not sure if I will be picking up anything else by this author anytime soon.
