From the author of the Capital Confessions Novels comes the first in the steamy Wild Aces Romance series.
U.S. Air Force fighter pilot Noah Miller—call sign Burn—loves nothing more than flying hard and fast. When he meets a gorgeous and sassy woman while partying in Las Vegas, he immediately locks on to her.
Jordan Callahan owns a thriving clothing boutique, but her love life is far less successful. Her luck changes when six feet, two inches of sexy swagger asks her to dance and turns her world upside down.
One scorching weekend becomes an undeniable chemistry that they can’t leave in Vegas. But the long distance relationship and their different lives threaten to ground their romance. And when the dangers of Noah’s job become all too real, Jordan learns being with a fighter pilot means risking it all for a shot at love…
The excerpt of Fly With Me is what caught my attention as humour and and a bubbly and fun heroine is my catnip. Along with the gorgeous cover, I was really excited to get into Fly With Me. The beginning was fun and sets up most of the tone of the story. Jordan and Noah hit it straight off and there’s no one pursuing the other more both physically and emotionally and both soon fall hard for each other. Jordan has to get accustomed to military life, since Noah is assigned whenever he is needed. After the fun beginning, the first half has a slow pace with lots of sex until the second half. The second half of the story sucker-punched me with all the emotions!
Jordan and Noah both want their relationship to work but it means making compromises, and because of Noah’s commitment to the military, it means Jordan has to make more of them and it does cause some realistic tension, especially when it feeds into Jordan’s mother’s needling remarks about Jordan settling down at her age and being more responsible. The two of them work hard to be together and I loved their smexy times and the humour, especially Noah’s beard lol. As I said above, the second half, most especially the end, was emotional and brought all the feels. I won’t go into spoilers but it brings Noah and Jordan closer, and I think the darkest moment is the start of a future book down the road featuring two other side characters.
All in all this was an enjoyable read, with insight and detail to air-force pilots lives and how it can put major strains on family and romantic life, while also bringing people much more closer together.
I give Fly With Me a B
