Oh My Gosh you guys! I absolutely LOVED this book. This book had it all for me. It had heartache, romance, forbidden love and action! I had every single feel throughout this book. I had freak out moments, I had laugh out loud moments, and I had my cheering moments. I also yelled a few times at the characters. All this to me makes for an amazing book.
Tink was one bad ass chick. She wanted to clear her brother’s name but flying the same plane her brother died in. Tink and her brother were as close as could be and she was devastated when he was killed. She shut herself off to everything but clearing his name. Being the only female in an all male flight class was hard but she earned the respect of those men and it was awesome.
Locke! Oh Locke! He was so hot! So powerful and yet kind and loving. He fell instantly for Tink however life got in the way. Their connection was off the charts and I loved every single interaction between the two even if sometimes I wanted to slap one or both of them.
I think another thing that stood out was that it technically sound. Since the author has lived the Air Force life (Thank you for your service and your spouse’s), this book really brought the reader into that world. So maybe some terms were over my head but that is what made it better.
Another thing that I loved were the supporting characters. I completely fell in love with Ash and some of the other guys from the training center.
This was an amazing debut novel and I can’t wait for her next book. I am pretty sure stalking will be involved!!!
