My mind struggles to wrap around the severity of the injuries passing by my frozen, shell-shocked frame. Flashes of my time in Afghanistan soar in front of my eyes. “Please God, save her,” I whisper. “I need her. Our life together has only just begun don’t take her from me now, not yet. It’s not her time. It’s our time to be together, damn it! We deserve a chance.”
“Lisa,” I bellow. “Come to me, baby.” Under my breath I mutter, “Don’t be a hero, Lisa. Save yourself. Save me, from a meaningless life, a life without you. There’s no reason for me to exist without you.” Tears cloud my vision of the metallic war zone, prior to tumbling down my cheeks.
This is a FAST read full of love, sex and intrigue. Little did I know when I started this book, it was actually the second book in the trilogy – WHOOPS!! However, knowing that, I can tell you this book can be read as a standalone, but I’m going to bet it’s better after reading book one (right now on sale for $.99!!!)
This is the fascinating story of International Air Captain (Yummy) Lance Miller and his (kind of, sort of) fiancée Lisa Price. The book opens with a spectacular plane crash and Lisa doing her stewardess duty of ensuring every passenger is off the plane before it completely disintegrates. Lance stands by helplessly watching the situation intensify, praying God saves the love of his life. Lisa survives, but when she wakes in a hospital a few days later, the perfect life Lance dreamed of continues to shatters right before his eyes…
My favorite thing about this book is the back and forth point of view, giving the reader a well-rounded view of the story and a better understanding of the struggle they both endure to get back to normal. Lance is perfectly wonderful as he attempts to help Lisa recover and Lisa is fabulously frustrating as she fights to get herself back.
Though I didn’t read book one, I was still able to grasp most of the back story about Lance and Lisa. I can tell it was a great beginning to a love story and I look forward to reading about the start of their relationship.
This hot little number is perfect for a day at the beach or a plane ride, and the cliffhanger ending will leave you begging for the next installment.
