This Year I Am Reading…
The Top Gun homage we’ve all been waiting for!
So far, this series opener is living up to its hype. The rivals-to-lovers aspect is playing up pretty strongly with by-the-books golden boy, Panther, going toe to toe with the wild, reckless and cocky, Solo. Who will come out on top?
Last Year I Was Reading…
A future with Hart could be potentially dangerous and often times full of terrifyingly close calls; but little did he know that so could falling for the most hunted hacker in the world. All Lennox Freeman wants in life is security, love and protection… Hart had all that to give and more.
I love the Nothing Special series but truth be told, most of the books had several issues. His Hart’s Command was a great improvement and the best book until Ex Meridian came along and blew everything out of the water.
My 3.5-star review here.
Today we have two contemporary books packed with alpha male posturing, OTT action and opposites attract dynamics.
Danger Zone is a rivals/enemies to lovers story between two top fighter pilots training at the most prestigious air force academy. There’s a lot of impressive fighter jet maneuvers, mouthy confrontations, dorky friends and USTs just begging to be resolved.
His Hart’s Command is a geek and the beast romance between SWAT captain, Ivan Hart and genius hacker, Lennox ‘Free’ Freeman. This is a softer, hurt comfort story that tackled domestic abuse. It also showed more scenes of the captain on the field compared to the other books in the series where the MCs were canoodling rather than working majority of the time.
I’ve already spent a lot of time on the ground with Hart, Free and their friends, so for this round, I’m taking it to the skies with Panther and Solo.
I’m ending the post with a book I’m looking forward to reading.
Former firefighter Frank Ramirez has never been afraid of the heat, until it came in the form of the sweet and sinful Joshua Sterling.
I’m so excited for this!
We met Frank and Joshua in Stacking The Deck, book 1 of The Kings: Wild Cards. We have been teased by them dancing around each other. Despite their very obvious attraction, neither made the move. This here is Joshua finally taking matters in his own hands. Attaboy!
What were you reading this time last year?
(I hope it’s as riveting as Morticia’s book)
