Money or love? Which would you choose?

You probably just answered the question in your head thinking it's an easy decision.

For me, it's not. Did I mention it's a lot of money? A hell of a lot.

I needed to go far away to think it through.

As I embarked on an impulsive trip, I hit a detour when I met sexy Carter in the airport lounge. We struck up a heated conversation.

Playboy Pilot is PHENOMENAL! One word is all it takes to describe this book and THAT IS IT!

Each and every time I pick up a book by Penelope or Vi I get swept away on a “Magical Mystery Tour”. But when those two “Come Together” something EPIC happens.. “In My Life” I've read all of Vi and Penelope's published books apart and together. They are both some of my ULTIMATE fave authors and I honestly don't think there is a better author duo out there. In fact I know there isn't. Penelope and Vi gel l

These two authors have done it again! Once again they delivered a sweet, sexy, entertaining story that sucked me in from the very beginning. From start to finish this story was pure and simple awesome and while it was more emotional than I had expected I enjoyed very much. 'Playboy Pilot' was really a well written, delightful read and it made me smile, swoon and laugh the entire time.

I just love these two authors! I have yet to be disappointed in a book that they've co-authored. While this wasn't my favorite of the books they've written together, I thought it was great nonetheless.

I barely knew her. But there was a gnawing voice inside of me that seemed to whisper, “Pay attention. This girl is important.”

I read this book in one sitting and absolutely ADORED it!! It was exactly what I was looking for: SWEET, SEXY, HEART-WARMING, ROMANTIC, ADDITIVE, and SWOOOOOONY!!! Oh my gosh, I loved the story so much!! From the moment I started reading, I was hooked. My heart raced and I couldn’t stop smiling! If you’re looking for something r

When I saw the hero was a pilot, I decided I had to read this book. You see, I have a thing for pilots. And airports. And duty free shops with rows and rows of perfumes and assortments of chocolate. And traveling in general.

As long as I don’t have to board an actual plane. When that does happen (after a drink or two three four), my composed and carefree self transforms into my ugly and pathetic self:

Anyway, I enjoyed this sweet and sexy romance but something was missing and I’m not sure

3.5 stars. The story was really working for me for a good while. Even though Carter was very obviously a man whore, I commend him for letting this thing with Kendall play out. Kendall had a decision to make, and who she was at the time had a lot of influence in why this was so big and important for her. This story is by no means a fast burn. Even with an obvious attraction, these two take it pretty slow. I like that they were digging deeper than the surface. This allowed for Kendall, and us as r ...more

➦So... Mr. York didn't disappoint. I loved his narration of Carter's part.

➦As you can probably derive from the title of this book Carter is a pilot. He sticks his dick into any willing co-worker. Yep, it's one of those manwhore reformed stories. But you know what, it was done well and it was pretty enjoyable and most definitely hawt.

2,5 really...

That was kind of a bit shock to me... I just couldn’t believe my eyes, I couldn’t believe what I was reading. What started as a hot, sweet, fun and light romance book, which I quite liked, turned into a bunch of ridiculous soap opera events in the second half...

There were so many clichés and absurdities that I found myself laughing my as* off instead of crying at events where I was supposed to cry or feel some kind of humane emotion, I guess. No, I was just laughing, feeling as if

And this, my friend, is the reason why I love New Adult. I couldn't believe I didn't read this book sooner. It was one of the best books written by Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland.

I actually think a book hangover will come after this.

I'm still crying over the fact that I saw not one hot pilot on my multiple airport experiences this past week and I blame this book. These authors gave me false hope that my pilots would be gorgeous playboy's that would whisk me away to an amazing location and have their way with me. Did it happen? Nope! All I saw were old bald pilots that did not live up to my Carter expectations.

“We didn’t see Rio, we experienced it. I felt like if there was a canvas in front of me, I would be able to bleed the beauty from my veins. It was the most incredible, invigorating experience of my life.”

Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland have done it again with their third collaboration “Playboy Pilot.” On their own they are amazing authors and I love all of their individual work, but together they are certainly a force to be reckoned with. They are definitely two of my all-time

➳Carter and Kendall will steal your mind away when you read their story! This book had me hooked the moment it mentioned Chris Hemsworth and Theo James, because... HELLO! Chris & Theo are two perfect men specimen. But, yeah going back to Carter and Kendall...

➳Their story is not like the same old story of a pilot falling in love with his conquest. This story has that charismatic and vibrant appeal to it, that no other has. Carter is the Captain for an airplane airline, in which he meets Kenda

This reading was pretty great! I loved Carter and Kendall!

This duo can write people!!!

I've come to love pilots especially if they look like Carter and make you feel like the only woman on earth! Or challenge you to do things out of your comfort zone!


I loved Carter and how intense he felt for Kendall even in a short amount of time! He was hot, smart, funny and gave her lots and lot of O's and the chance to travel the world doing crazy things and enjoying life like ther

Oh I loved this book so much! I think that flying away from your problems with a stranger is one of the dreams most romantic girls have.

Overall Opinion: Hmmm...I'm definitely a minority here with this one. Did I have moments of loving it and laughing out loud as well as swooning over the H? Yes. I just didn't care all that much for the h, and there were some other things that after reflecting on it to write this review bugged me enough to not love it. The pushing away that the h did bothered me big time, and especially her big push at the end made me actually dislike her. I really did enjoy the H though. He made the stor

When Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward write a book together, I get ready to jump into their story. I have read all of their joint books and have enjoyed them all.

Playboy Pilot is nothing what I expected. I was expecting a pilot/flight attendant connection, but what we got was actually much more. Carter Clynes is the playboy pilot and he has more than earned that reputation. His playboy ways is actually how he ends up meeting Kendall Sparks.

Each of these books are complete standalone novels and each one of them are new and refreshing storylines. You don’t feel like you are reading the same old story just with new characters. The only thing these books have in common is that they are based off random meetings between strangers.

Penelope and Vi always give us characters and storylines that the reader just gets sucked into. Playboy Pilot was no different. Once I started this book, I couldn’t put it down. I was even sad when it came to

OH. EM. GEE. EVERYONE! This freaking book right here has everything I needed. It's fun, sexy and sassy. It's deep, exciting and inviting. It's heart warming, charming and honest. PLUS we get little moments of angst. Do you need anything else? I certainly don't!

Sweet read, but sadly i wasn't a total fan of this book. As much as i love these authors, this one had a bizarre plot. Sexy, playboy pilot, Carter meets runaway rich heir, Kendall at the airport and have an instant attraction. Kendall decides to follow Carter on a whim and together they end up in Brazil, Dubai and Amsterdam. Sparks fly and despite his man-whore ways, Carter is sure Kendall is unlike the others(and boy, did he have MANY 'others'). I liked their friendship and that they d

Lordy, who wouldn’t love to have the money to merely flip a coin to decide where to take a vacation, destination unknown, just go? That’s just what Kendall Sparks is doing the day she meets Captain Carter Clynes, who convinces her to take a chance on Rio, and essentially take a chance on him, because he’s the pilot of the plane and now her personal tour guide.

And now they’re off on a grand adventure—48 hours of fun and sun. Kendall and Carter hit it off immediately—there was a connection that t
