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…
In preparation for the release of book 3, I am starting the series from the beginning! Seriously, its a series about fighter pilots. FIGHTER PILOTS! There are lots of military romances, but this is my first fighter pilot book.
So, Fly with me is the story of Jordan, the curvy bombshell who is in Vegas celebrating her sister’s upcoming wedding, and Noah “Burn”, a fighter pilot doing some training at Nellis AFB. Their first meeting is steamy and there is some serious insta-lust. Both go into it knowing it would be a one or two night thing, since neither are in Vegas for long. Jordan does play hard to get though and I loved that. There is certainly some ‘games’ between these two that I found humorous. Noah’s fellow pilots add some levity to the story as well! They are all quite the playboys.
Most of the story centers around the difficulty of long distance relationships and the reality of making it work with someone you hardly know. But, tragedy strikes near the end and its heartbreaking! I was at the point where I found myself skimming because it seemed that all Jordan and Noah did was have sex (seriously, that was it. ALL THE TIME!) but once this tragic even takes place, things change and you see growth in not only Noah and Jordan, but the rest of the squad. It was great character development; I just wish it had happened a little sooner in the story.
I really cannot wait to get my hands on the other guys’ stories! Thor and Becca are next: they were engaged until he chose F-16’s over her and broker her heart. Then, finally, in book 3 we get Easy’s story! People, Easy’s story is bound to be EPIC!
