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…

Next book in the series:

I think I’ve seen Top Gun just once in my life a long time ago. At the time, I don’t remember equating fighter pilots to sexy men in uniform. Well, after reading Fly With Me, I’m making that specific connection.

I sure loved me some Noah “Burn” Miller, the hero and air force fighter pilot extraordinaire. Sigh. Swoon. He’s hot with a capital and bold H. I totally got what instantly drew Jordan to him at the bar where they had taken her sister’s bachelorette party.

His head bent, his dark hair nearly brushing against my blond strands. I got a glimpse of his tanned neck, barely resisting the urge to bury my face there and inhale more of his delicious scent.

I wasn’t much of a romantic—not with my track record, at least. I didn’t believe in love at first sight, but lust at first sight? That was a thing definitely happening all over my body tonight.

“Please tell me you aren’t the bride,” he whispered in my ear, his lips teasing the sensitive skin there.

Noah is smoother than milky Swiss chocolate. I love that he knows what he wants and has no qualms about going after it. And from the second he lays eyes on Jordan, he wants her, and the feeling is absolutely mutual.

And there you have it. From the very beginning, the hero and heroine want each other and it’s out there. Don’t get me wrong, I do love a good dance, but the straightforward approach is a welcome change every once in a while. And them acknowledging this right off the bat doesn’t take away from the sexual tension that simmers between them.

Jordan is an unapologetically ambitious, independent woman. She co-owns a clothing store with a friend, and she doesn’t need a man to take care of her. But I love that she doesn’t play coy when she first meets Noah. I’ll say it again, it is darn refreshing.   

But their one-night (okay, maybe it’s more like two or three) stand turns into something more. The only problem is they live hundreds of miles apart, he in Oklahoma and she in Florida. Without looking too far into the future, they decide to take the plunge, taking each day, each week at a time.

Now if you’ve ever been in a long-distance relationship, you know how hard it is. If not, Ms. Cleeton, lays it out quite accurately in her telling of Jordan and Noah’s romance. All the flights back and forth, the phone calls that are never enough, and the constantly missing of each other. Never have I wanted two people to live in the same city or town. I would have happy if they’d lived in the same state. If they thought being so far apart was hard for them, it was hellish on me too.

Of course, the long distance thing is not conflict enough. Ahead is still more turmoil that Jordan and Noah will to have to go through. Heartbreaking stuff. Life changing stuff. Huge decisions to be made.

Speaking of heartbreak, enter Easy and Thor, two of Noah’s fight pilot friends. Easy is a stand out secondary character and not just because he’s the best looking of the trio, but because his story is going to be excruciating in the best way possible. Unrequited love. That’s all I’m going to say. Believe me, you’re going to be champing at the bit for his book even before you’ve finished this one.

Thor, on the other hand, is slightly more low key than Easy. But his love gone wrong story becomes apparent towards the end of the book. And there’s a juicy excerpt from his book, Into the Blue, at the end of this book. And I’m getting ready to dig into that one very soon.

Okay, getting back to Fly With Me, what a great start to a new series. And boy did Ms. Cleeton do a fantastic job of setting up the subsequent books. I think it will be impossible for you to read this—and if you enjoy it as much as I did—and not immediately want to read the next two in the series.
