★★★★★! Turbulence (stand-alone). A heartfelt tumultuous & illicit worldwide affair between a pilot & flight attendant with issues & secrets!

If you love forbidden love stories as much as I do, then you don’t want to miss this one! Whitney G. delivered an intense, steamy and also a little emotional at times story that kept me at the edge of my seat the entire time for one reason or another. The story was well written and really gripping from start to finish and features two well portrayed characters that entertained me in many ways until the end.

I know, once again, that all is lost. All is us. All is Turbulence.
Oh, how I love forbidden love stories! I also love Whitney G’s writing and the fact that she can write the best cocky yet broken heroes. I thought Andrew was an impossible asshole- well, Jake takes the crown when it comes to that title! Yet somehow, he’s still mostly lovable. He’s a stickler for grammar, a top-notch pilot, and an all around incorrigible man. See what I mean-

➦What could be better than a hot as fuck, arrogant, cocky, wealthy and single pilot? Jake does what he wants and lives by his own rules. And nothing can get him fired. NOTHING! Why? Well, that's a big question, isn't it?

➦Gillian, however, knows a thing or two about being fired. She starts a new career as a flight attendant and ends up crossing paths with Jake, who she has met before under some peculiar circumstances. Did I pique your interest yet?

I’m super excited to report that Whitney G. is back with another sarcastic, cocky, delicious, hero in Jake C. Weston. Jake is unapologetic sexy pilot who readers and Gillian Taylor won’t be able to resist.


Gillian Taylor is working two jobs all the while nursing the pain from the implosion of her dream job at the The New York Times. She’s working as a flight attendant for Elite Airways and cleaning for a well to do apartment building in Manhattan. Jake and Gillian’s paths cross in a very

Where can I find me a Jake?

This unbearable and rude asshole with his impossible Dr. House personality and grammatically correct tongue?



If you haven't met Jake yet, this is the last call for boarding!

Fasten your seatbelts, keep your seats upright and prepare for the ride of your life!

P.S. Sorry Drew, you’ve been squeezed into second place.

If Fifty Shades of Grey and Ugly Love had a baby, it would be this.

*A sex only relationship between the MCs
*Hero/heroine defining a set of rules to make sure the sex doesn't turn into more

If you're a fan of sexy, angsty, and intense forbidden romance, then this is the book for you! I have to admit that I'm always drawn to mysterious, tortured heroes with hidden pain. They steal my heart every time and Jake made my heart ache even while making me swoon and fan myself. The romance was hot, HOT, H-O-T and Gillian and Jake were oddly so perfect for each other despite the undeniable fuckedupness of their relationship. He had rules. She had feelings. The

Whitney G. is a one click read for me. I don’t even have to read the blurb to auto buy anything she writes. I know when I pick up a Whitney G. book, I’m going to get a non-stop, addictive, romance filled read.

Turbulence is no expectation. It hit all of my expectations. I was captivated, I was glued to the pages, I fell in love with Jake and I wanted to be Gillian. What I loved most about this story is just how well written it was. I felt like the plot was very developed,

“Our rules were simple. Our passion was scandalous. Our hearts were supposed to be safe…”


Wow! That was so HOT! If you love angsty, forbidden love stories with a cocky, sexy-as-sin man in uniform, then “Turbulence” is definitely a book you should sink your teeth into. This was exactly what I needed to read and more. This was the first book I have read by Whitney G. and I can assure you it won’t be the last.

One of the most exciting things this year was the return of Whitney Gracia Williams. The build-up to Turbulence was perfectly pitched and the buzz grew daily with every teaser that was given.

It was fun, over the top and an indulgent reading experience I thoroughly enjoyed. Was it completely plausible? No. Did I care? Again, no.

It was sexy and laugh out funny and I enjoyed every minute of it. If I had to compare Turbulence to any of Whitney’s previous releases, I'd compare it to the Reas

Top three things I HATE about the books I read :

1. On-again-off-again/push-pull/back-forth/hot-cold relationship.
2. Doormat/weak heroines.
3. The heroes or heroines with love/trust issues.

And guess what? I got them all here. Oh, lucky me! THANK. YOU. VERY. MUCH.

To be honest, this book came nowhere close to my expectations. I was sorely disappointed. The plot was ok but the story moved at a snail’s pace. There were too many unnecessary sex scenes, but thankfully, some of them were short and not o

Well shucks.

Seeing as WGW is one of my all time favorite authors and this book has been highly anticipated for almost 2 years, it slays me to write this review.

Let me preface with this: I'm not a fan of women who engage in a purely sexual relationship while hoping the man will eventually fall in love with them. If you have to ask a man why he doesn't want to have a conversation or go out on dates or why he cares little about your non-coital activities, then, you are not in a relationship- but a

This is my first book from Whitney G. and I have mixed feelings about it.
I am not a fan of instant love, I prefer a slower and deeper connection that only time can provide, but when I have the chance to read this type of books, expectations are high.

This book was different when instant love is concerned, because for a long period of time I had no clue what our heroes were doing.. I believed that they are attracted to each other, but them something happens and they fight, and then they are back

Two things, I love forbidden love and I love Whitney G. If you haven’t read her books, I highly recommend them! She writes sexy assholes better than just about anyone else. Some of her men are the ones you love to hate or forget to hate because they are so irresistible.

This story is actually two things, first, it’s forbidden love like I said, but it also has an eliminate of mystery. Jake Weston is one of the best commercial pilots, but his attitude leaves much to be desired. Throughout the stor

I liked the book, I can't say I didn't. The first 50% or so was very good and had that 5 stars vibe but then afterward their constant push and pull started getting on my nerves.

The sex was hot and I dig Jake's douchy way in my heroes and Gillian was a likeable heroine too, it still somehow missed that wow factor for me.

It may be because of that excessive back and forth or maybe that ending, Idk. Sure, they got their HEA but it was so rushed and abrupt. Didn't really left me a

I travel frequently by airplane and this book has made me really worried.

I hope that the following were created by the author’s imagination and they can never actually happen:

1. The pilot of the airplane is having sex with the flight attendant during flight.
2. The pilot is having sex with the flight attendant while the plane is on air and it is experiencing turbulence.
3. The pilot is walking around the plane moments after takeoff in order to talk to the flight attendant for personal matters.

It's no secret that I love the biggest arsehole heroes, and Jake was no exception, he was rude, arrogant and extremely unemotional, but that's the beauty of fiction, I would never put up with a man like this in real life, but to watch a character like Jake fall in deep with a woman, hard and unexpectedly, is one of my biggest guilty pleasures.

Good morning ladies and gentleman, and welcome aboard this flight to a forbidden affair, with a layover in heartbreak city and can't-get-my-pants-off-fast-enough county. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the on board entertainment.

Holy hell this was a hot book! Jake Weston can be my captain any day. His brash manner and the way he spoke to people should have turned me off of him the instant he opened his mouth, but nope it had me sitting up straight and primping, getting myself ready for him.

-Wonderful depth of relationship development.
-The chemistry between Jake and Gillian smoked up the pages of my book.
-The characters all felt so real and acted as real people would in the same situation.
