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 Nevada Tourism Bureau seriously needs to abandon their ‘whatever happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas’ tagline because a lot that happens in Vegas does not stay there.
FLY WITH ME is a very sexy, steamy and humorous number that took me on an emotional spin and is the kind of book that makes all other activities optional until you finish reading it. Ms. Cleeton’s Capital Confessions series made her one of my authors to watch, but this book has put her firmly on my list of auto-buy authors.
The amazing thing about this book is that the story is a simple one that plays out every day in people’s lives but she infused the characters with a vitality that makes them irresistible and nothing about their love story is overdone. I’ve read my fair share of romances but I’ve found that only few authors have the magic touch when it comes to sizzling and palpable chemistry between characters that leaps off the pages at a reader and balancing that with emotional depth and Ms. Cleeton is on my short list.
Jordan and Noah are at the point in their lives where settling down with that special person has become a burning need and their explosive weekend together gives them a taste of what they can have if they take a chance on each other. The fun of this story is watching them try to navigate the difficulties that come with a long distance relationship. While the life of a fighter pilot looks very glamorous from the outside, I love that the author didn’t downplay the toll that pressure, fear and worry can take on a significant other or the high cost of loving someone in such a high risk job. She doesn’t skimp on the humor either, even when the characters are in the midst of a drag down, knock out fight and I laughed so hard at ‘Chester the Molester’.
Jordan is my favorite kind of heroine. She has a large personality, she’s confident, she’s high maintenance and unapologetic about it, but she’s also very down to earth.
There are almost no words for Noah. He’s cocky, confident and hot enough to make your ovaries sit up and take notice but he’s also very adorable as he struggles to find his footing in a relationship that matters more than any other before it.
I love this book so much and I think it’s a must read and should be at the top of everyone’s TBR list.
