Money or love? Which would you choose?
You probably just answered the question in your head thinking it’s an easy decision.
For me, it’s not. Did I mention it’s a lot of money? A hell of a lot.
I needed to go far away to think it through.
As I embarked on an impulsive trip, I hit a detour when I met sexy Carter in the airport lounge. We struck up a heated conversation.
Then, he left.
I thought I’d never see him again.
But fate had other plans.
Surprise! He was the pilot of my flight.
The bigger surprise was the adventure that followed after the plane landed.
Carter was dangerous and always on the move.
Even though our connection was magnetic, I knew it was only temporary.
He would give me tickets, and I would follow him around the world to exotic places.
A bevy of flight attendant exes and rumors about Carter’s reputation were never far behind.
I didn’t know what to believe.
But I was addicted. Nothing else mattered anymore. And I was going to get hurt. Because a part of me wanted to be the one to finally ground the playboy pilot.
At the very least, he was taking me on a thrilling ride.
All good things must come to an end, right?
Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.
Playboy Pilot is the first book I’ve read by Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland and it definitely packs a punch. Fun, exciting and steamy, Playboy Pilot is the perfect easy-going read for romance fans or people who just need an upbeat change of pace.
Kendall Sparks begins the story sitting at an airport bar, trying to decide where to travel. She’s got a decision weighing heavily on her mind, and this trip is her last-ditch effort to get some perspective. She meets Carter and the chemistry is electric, but they part ways after he imparts some advice on her destination. Following his suggestion, Kendall boards a flight and discovers that Carter is the pilot.
What follows is a well-developed friends-to-lovers plot that doesn’t side-step around Kendall’s reluctance to form a relationship with Carter, who has a notable past of playing the field. We see Carter trying to win her over, putting effort into their friendship, and respecting her boundaries. The dialogue between both characters was fabulous and the backdrop of many different countries made for a fun read.
There are plenty of sweet moments, steamy scenes and even a hint of angst. While I don’t think there was anything unexpected in the story, there was definitely enough going on to keep me interested and entertained from start to finish.
I rated Playboy Pilot 5 out of 5 stars.
