So you know those books that have you all like this?


Those books that you are so into that you get irrationally pissed off when your co-worker rudely tries to talk to you about work stuff - as if! - when you are obviously reading?


Those books that make you sit in the locker room at work - way after work is legit over and you should legit be on the freeway home, but you can't read on the freeway - well...not efficiently anyway...J/K folks, distracted driving is bad.

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-

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.

➦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?

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

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 cro

Where? Where can I find me a Jake? This unbearable and rude asshole with his impossible Dr. House personality and grammatically correct tongue?

Ladies, 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.

P.P.S. Ms. Williams, you do realize you ruined me for all non-fictional men?

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

“I won't be the guy you think you can call when you need to talk to someone. Unless it's about how wet your pussy is, I don't want your name on my call log, and I don't need you thinking we'll ever be friends.”



I wonder what everyone else saw in this book that I apparently couldn't see.

While 5-star reviews are flying around, I believe the story wasn't as intriguing as we've been expecting it to be. I mean the main plot is nothing unique. The guy just wants sex.

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,

Wow, what a great book.

I personally just loved the plot. Flight attendant meets hot pilot. Of course drama ensues. Emotions are getting entangled. And steamy encounters kept me flipping pages.

Ok, the pilot theme is not new but this take on was refreshingly captivating. It was quite unique and it even had a touch of the forbidden which made the storyline even more interesting to me.

I loved how sarcastic Jake was. Although he was a little bit assholy, demanding and emotionally damaged I enjoyed hi

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

The story was really cute - I laughed out loud and enjoyed the 'push and pull' between the characters, especially the hero's dirty mouth (this author definitely loves them dirty!!!) 😂💥

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 Re
Top three things I HATE about the books I read :

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

I normally don’t like “asshole heroes"; and if I love them, then it means he has a special charm of his own for me to ignore his “asshole side” :) and Jake in this book, surely did have his charm with his blue eyes, dirty blond hair and with his dirty talk. He had an awesome sense of humor.

He wasn’t always an asshole but so many people he loved and trusted betrayed him in the past that he became a man with walls to protect himself from being hurt again.

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.

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.
