A sexy and poignant romantic tale of a young daredevil pilot caught between two brothers.
High school senior Leah Jones loves nothing more than flying. While she’s in the air, it’s easy to forget life with her absentee mother at the low-rent end of a South Carolina beach town. When her flight instructor, Mr. Hall, hires her to fly for his banner advertising business, she sees it as her ticket out of the trailer park. And when he dies suddenly, she’s afraid her flying career is gone forever.
But Mr. Hall’s teenage sons, golden boy Alec and adrenaline junkie Grayson, are determined to keep the banner planes flying. Though Leah has crushed on Grayson for years, she’s leery of getting involved in what now seems like a doomed business — until Grayson betrays her by digging up her most damning secret. Holding it over her head, he forces her to fly for secret reasons of his own, reasons involving Alec. Now Leah finds herself drawn into a battle between brothers — and the consequences could be deadly.
I heart Jennifer Echols so much! *sighs* Where, oh where to start with this book? It was absolutely amazing! From cover to cover, this book sucked me in and had me hook line and sinker!
The story was well paced. The character's were so vibrant and unique. Leave it to Jen ( yes, I love her so much she is officially "Jen" to me!) to somehow make what could've been a totally cliche contemporary into something unique and original. I loved the flying aspect to this story. I've never read much about planes and flying, beyond a dreaded physics class in 6th grade. What I didn't learn in that class, was the love of flying itself, the rush, the emotions, and the love of flying. The author did such an amazing job of weaving her story that I totally wanted to begin flying lessons A.S.A.P.! But then, I remembered something, I hate flying! haha
Okay back to the character's. . . the main character Leah had a strong will and I loved her for that! She works her tail off to make her dreams come true, and I totally admire that chick for it. She has a dead beat Mom, and it's clear if she wants to make something out of her life, it's up to her! Leah wastes no time in making her dreams come true. From landing a job at the local airport to finding a way to pay for the ever expensive flying lessons. This girl is not about to let anything get in her way of her love of flying.
Then there's the love story. *sighs dreamily* I think this is what Jennifer Echols is best at. In fact, if you looked up the definition of "love story" in the dictionary I'm pretty sure Jennifer's name would be beside it! The romance was steamy, hot, and completely toe curling! It was absolute perfection!
All in all I loved this book and don't have one single complaint about it. It was original, romantic, and refreshing! Echol's is sure to captivate you with this haunting love story!
