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.

After reading three other books in this series, I decided it was time to go back a little and read Playboy Pilot. For the most part, it was a fun and flirty book that I had a hard time putting down. I liked the way Carter nudged Kendall into the right direction for her trip away—after meeting in the lounge—and they had so much fun on their adventures together. It was spontaneous, sweet and exciting!

Carter and Kendall's attraction to one another was immediate. However, it wasn't rushed, they spent some quality time getting to know one another, and despite the impulsive trip, they didn't hurry into intimacy. They saw some beautiful places, met some incredible people and stepped outside of their comfort zones for a little while. It was good to see them share intimate details with one another, not knowing if this connection would become something permanent.

Although this was mostly an exciting and playful read, there were some twists thrown in to add some drama to this love story. It made my heart ache that it challenged both characters to this degree. I had hope that they would find their way once again.

I've read a few books by this duo, and they always hook me to their characters and the world that they create. I also enjoyed that this story had a little crossover with one of my Aussie favourites from a previous book! Playboy Pilot wasn't my favourite read from this standalone series, I think because of the drama that surfaced, but I still enjoyed it regardless!

Here are two teasers, one is a little fun and amusing, the other made my heart ache for Carter and Kendall, and I hoped they would spend more time together! 

“I was going to say today felt better than it ever has for me. That I fucking loved your arms wrapped around my body the entire time, and the way it felt when your nails dug into my skin and your tits pressed into my back. That seeing your smile, knowing I had something to do with putting it on that beautiful face, was a fuck of a lot better than just raising the tip of a plane or flying a solo glider.” He cupped both my cheeks into his hands. “Don’t go braless and talk to strange Brazilian men in bars. Got it?”

I nodded.
“Now give me a damn kiss already. I’ve been good for two days. No way in hell I’m letting you walk out of my life without a little taste.”
Before I could say a word, which obviously would have been yes, please, Carter’s mouth crashed down on mine. My knees went totally limp. My pulse was racing as he pulled me tightly against his body. He groaned when I wrapped my arms around him just as hard as he was holding me. Our tongues frantically collided, neither of us willing to waste another second before it was too late. We needed to taste each other, feel each other, say it all with that one kiss. When he started to release my mouth, I moaned and the kiss ramped up again. Even hungrier this time. I had no idea how long it lasted, I just knew when it ended, I was going to be devastated.
Carter leaned his forehead against mine. “Thank you for everything, Perky.”
