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…
I’m so glad that billionaires are no longer the “go-to” hero! I was so excited for a fighter pilot hero, I mean, that’s a new one, right? Usually they’re SEALs (not that I mind that either ;P). But a fighter pilot? Hubba Hubba!
But this book isn’t going to work for me at all. I hate the dual first person point of view. I really do.
I also hate the way they think. They think like a group of guys or women would talk to each other. While I have totally said some of that stuff in jest, like “OMG my ovaries are ‘sploding!” over a hot guy on twitter, I’ve honestly never thought that in my head in a serious manner, or ever actually said it out loud.
This writing is not for me at all, which is a shame, according to many of my friends who liked it, since it’s supposed to be super good and really emotional. So for once, I’ll still recommend a book that I didn’t like, mainly because this is such a taste-specific reason to not like a book. Although the way they think? Oy, I’m so not feeling that.
So, there you are. If you don’t mind the idea of a 33 year old talking like a young girl tweets, and if you don’t mind the dual first person point of view, then go for it!
