U.S. Air Force fighter pilot Noah Miller—call sign Burn—loves nothing more than flying hard and fast. When he meets a gorgeous and sassy woman while partying in Las Vegas, he immediately locks on to her.
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…
This was a book that grew on me and I’m happy that I persevered through what I felt were shallow and vain characters simply looking to get laid (the number of sex scenes – gratuitous and perhaps even superfluous – merely reinforced this opinion).
What surprised me entirely however, was the poignancy and depth written about relationships pursued when a partner is in the military and the sheer amount of sacrifice that came with it. All of that though, kicked in only towards the latter part of the book, which I wouldn’t have known about had I not soldiered on. While I’ll readily admit that the main characters didn’t exactly resonate with me, I do find myself anxious to read the stories of the peripheral cast members which are already set up for what has to be heart-wrenching tales.
