Alex blasts through the bars of South Beach and points her search to Key West and Cuba, laying waste to Miami hit men, dodging Palmetto bugs big enough to eat her alive, and putting the pedal to the metal with NASCAR driver Sam Hooker.
Engaged in a deadly race, Wild Bill has "borrowed" Hooker's sixty-five foot Hatteras and sailed off into the sunset...just when Hooker has plans for the boat. Hooker figures he'll attach himself to Alex and maybe run into Bill. Maybe Hooker can salvage what's left of his vacation. And maybe Hooker'll get lucky in love with Bill's sweetie-pie sister. After all, Hooker is NASCAR Guy. And NASCAR Guy is good at revving a woman's engine.
The race to the finish is hot and hard, taking Alex and Hooker into international waters, exposing a plot to grab Cuban gold and a sinister relic of the Cuban missile crises. Creative cussing and sexual innuendo included.

Stephanie Plum Goes South
While the names were changed the characters and plot were not. Metro Girl is really just a location and name change for Stephanie Plum. For those that enjoy that series they will enjoy Metro Girl. NASCAR Guy was a little unbelieveable, and I kept looking for LuLu to show up somewhere. Fairly fun light humor. Okay for the commute to work listen.

OK, I'm pretty used to Evanovich's other novels (?), (the non- 'other' being the Stephanie Plum type), and this one is not worse nor better than the others. Even if I don't understand the title (although Barney does state several times that she's from Baltimorewhich is a metro area), the premise is typical Evanovich. However...the reader! I keep trying to hear my own head-reading and it's nothing like what my ears are hearing. Sorry, but she should never read a man part; nor a Spanish-Cuban part. She's very distracting. So distracting that I can't even remember her name, which was, I think, mentioned at the start of the book. It should remain unmemorable -- except for remembering not to read her books again.
