If you love military men and second chance romances, then this is the perfect book for you. Chanel Cleeton’s second installment in her newest series was as good as the first one if not better. 'Into the Blue' was “the perfect” second chance romance – with no overwhelming angst and drama, endearing characters that will steal your heart from the beginning and a wonderful love story that will make you swoon.

It seemed like my entire adult life had been spent either running from or to this one girl.
Confession time: I'm an angst addict. OK, so that's probably not that big a secret, but I'm going somewhere with this so bear with me. Now if I told you this was a sweet and sexy second chance romance that had no stupid misunderstandings, miscommunication, and light on the angst and yet I still read it in one sitting; would you believe me? Because that's exactly what happened with Into The Blue. ...more

5 "Need to Fix This" Stars
Chanel Cleeton, where have you been all my life? I was fortunate to have the second of this amazing series waiting for me after finishing Fly With Me, thanks to the author gifting me an ARC.
Military men are a league of their own. They own every little bit of confidence, cockiness and arrogance but also loyalty and love for whatever they deem worthy. This is why I ...more
Title: Into the Blue
Series: Wild Aces
Author: Chanel Cleeton
Release date: July 5, 2016
HEA(view spoiler)[Yes (hide spoiler)]
After reading (and loving) Fly With Me, I knew I'd be faithfully following this series. Not only did I love the main characters in the first, but the secondary characters were built well enough to hook me easily into wanting to know more about them. This book is about Eric (Thor), Noah's friend and fly buddy in the Wild Aces military aviation squadron.
If you' ...more
I'm certain I've said this before but it bears repeating, Chanel Cleeton is a woman well versed in the art of creating sexual tension! After the sizzling sensation that is Fly with me, Chanel changes gears with this slow burn love affair. Into the Blue is an emotion-filled second chance romance, with the wildness and anticipation of first love.
Eric ‘Thor’ Jansen is a filter pilot whose squadron has recently suffered a personal loss. With more than his work performance being affected, he decides ...more
What can I say? I adore this series. Chanel Cleeton is a relatively new author to me, but after loving Fly With Me and now getting to enjoy this second book in the Wild Aces series she is making her way on my must-read-author list. Ms.Cleeton has a way of spinning compelling, swoon-worthy and super hot love stories. Just the kind of thing this girl likes to read every once in awhile.
Into the Blue is the second book in the Wild Aces series, a second chance military theme ...more

”…it was the force of Eric. Six-feet-two-inches of Eric.”
Following the tragedy that unfolded in the first book, Eric finds himself taking time away from base, returning home to South Carolina determined to lay old ghosts to rest. Ten years previously he left, determined to become a successful fighter pilot, but in his wake he left a devastated and broken-hearte ...more
So I think it’s pretty obvious that I am addicted to Chanel Cleeton and if you didn’t get that message, I am here now to tell you that I am. Anything that Chanel writes, I practically inhale in one sitting. And so it wouldn’t come as a surprise as to how much I love Into the Blue.
If you read the first book of the Wild Aces Series, you will be like me thinking you are going to get smoking wild hot steamy scenes but it turns out In ...more
Into the Blue perfectly represents what makes this author work for me.
Becca Madison and Eric Jansen are two people who are in love with each other but are being pulled in different directions by their ambition and their quest to find themselves. They went from being in love and engaged to nothing. Eric walked away to beco ...more
Becca's hurt and resentment touched my heart, she was so broken hearted! No one ever came close to holding the same position in her heart after him, and so seeing him ten years later came as quite a shock.
Eric regretted his decision to leave Becca all those years ago. One of the reasons he's never returned home is the fear of running into her. Eric doesn't know that she'd ever forgive him. There's n ...more
Into the Blue is the second book in the Wild Aces series and probably shouldn't be read as a standalone as it contains spoilers for book one, Fly with Me. Okay, with that bit of housekeeping out of the way, this is Eric (call sign Thor) and Becca's book. A second-chance romance between the F-16 pilot and the small town prosecuting attorney. Once engaged, Thor had to choose between his life in the military versus his love for Becca. Both their careers couldn't mesh so he ...more
After reading Fly with me I was so high I had to start Into the Blue right away. Chanel just blew me away with how intense her first story was I wanted to see how she could write a different story. And believe me Into the Blue is very different than the first book in the Wild Aces series. And rest assured it's in a good way.
I adored discovering a new universe with the fighter pilot crew. I wasn't expecting to be so interested in what it entails to be a fighter pilot. I admire people who give the ...more
-Flying Aces is, well...aces: This series based on a squadron of Air Force fighter pilots, has been a great introduction to Ms. Cleeton’s writing for me. This is the second book in the series, and while it’s very different in tone from the first, it’s no less satisfying to read.
-Kind of a standalone: It’s not necessary to read the first book to enjoy this one, but it does spoil major events in that book, so be forewarned if you're OC ...more
It seemed like my entire adult life had been spent either running from or to this one girl.
Chanel Cleeton does it again!! SERIOUSLY, WHY HAS IT TAKEN ME THIS LONG TO READ HER?!?!
I'll keep this brief (and kind of quote heavy because I think I highlighted damn near half the book), but it'll be spoiler free.
Eric is home trying to put his head back together after the loss the Wild Aces suffered at the end of the previous book. Being home means one thing....Becca. Becca is his high ...more

I loved loved LOVED THIS BOOK!!! Into the Blue was the PERFECT second chance romance/military romance for me. I’m usually a bit picky about these two tropes, and put them together? I was terrified about how it would play out, but holy hell, did I adore Eric and Becca’s second chance at love. I couldn’t have imagined a better story for these two characters. And omg Eric – can you say SWOON!? He was utter perfection as a hero. Seriously, I loved this book so ...more

Reviewed for herding cats & burning soup.
Sometimes you're really just not sure how a romance will possibly find it's way past all the hurdles in its way--a messy decades old breakup, hurt and regret, careers and lives on opposite sides of the country--but when things finally fall into place it's beautiful, touching, and just leaves you smiling.
The quick of it is that when they were young kids just starting out in life Eric and Becca were in love but their lives took them in different direct ...more
Chanel Cleeton brings us another military romance, tears, sighs, anger and all. Into the Blue is a tale of young love, different goals and the dreams that came true while others die a fiery death.
Eric left to fulfill his dream of being the best of the best, an F-16 fighter pilot. He left behind ...more
‘It seemed like my entire adult life had been spent either running from or to this one girl. She was the compass when I was so lost I couldn’t find my way.’
We feel the need! The need for Easy’s book! We’re really enjoying this series and eagerly dive in to meet each of the Wild Aces crew as they strive to find the love of a woman that gels with their passion for F-16 jets…and it’s not easy! Living a transient Military with a man who risks his life every day, who thrives on danger isn’t for the f ...more
I just...my heart. It's so tender and sore right now. I mean, it's overflowing with all kinds of these happy, bubbly feelings, but the road there was a little ache-y and my heart is still feeling some of those bumps.
But, it hurt so good. I mean, it never felt bitter or angry in the way that second chance romances sometimes do. It never felt like the obstacles they had to overcome were too big, or that their hearts were too closed off ...more

"I walked into the bar, already feeling about ten years past my prime."
I never knew how much I loved second chance romance until now!

It seemed like my entire adult life had been spent either running from or to this one girl. She was the compass when I was so lost I couldn’t find my way.
Ten years ago Becca Maddison and Eric Jansen were very much in love, but they were also so young and wanted different things. She wanted stability and the family she lost when her parents died, and he wanted to make something of himself. So he crushed her dream and her heart, after five years of being together, when he broke their engagement...more

Love was easy; trust was the hard part.
Into The Blue is a novel that took my by surprise. I admit, when I first started this book, I was being such a hater. I don't even know why. Maybe I wasn't feeling the cover or maybe I was reading while hangry. Whatever the reason, I misjudged this book and I was wrong. Not only did I end of loving this story but once I was done I wanted to read it all over again.
This one of those second chance love stories that I crave. The one that makes you see why the c ...more
