1.5 Not Quite For Me Stars
This book never really connected for me. The beginning was interesting and compelling, the attack Lindsey suffered and the recovery after the things that would have changed, and the way she fought back after the attack had a lot of interesting potential.
Maverick is a fighter pilot, so he should be cocky and self assured, able to take care of himself, to go after what he wants.
There was a lot of potential...and it went now ...more
Fantasy filler with lack of substance and hero throws around "like a girl" to insult. He's an Air Force pilot but you would never know it because it apparently takes up so very little of his time.
Heroine almost raped in beginning and then can only stand to be touched by hero who she had a one night stand with, sorry mom, dad, brothers, and bestfriend, you're not trustworthy like this guy.
Manages to play ball with Seattle Mariners and ride with a NASCAR driver on the track, the things ...more
Ich bin mit dem Paar nicht so richtig warm geworden und auch die Funken wollten nicht so sprühen. Man hat zwar die Anziehung der beiden gespürt, aber als Leser hat es mich nicht so ganz erreicht.
Die Geschichte von Lindsey und Maverick hat eigentlich großes Potenzial, denn Lindsey ist noch nicht über einen brutalen Überfall im Krankenhaus hinweg und ...more
Another brother bites the dust.
It was a good read. Some parts were unrealistic. If you are in the Air Force you don't have that much time off. Mav also broke his arm, but then there was no mention of it again and he didn't act like he had a cast.
Other than that great storyline. Hot sex for sure. Millionaire Prince Charming to the rescue, every girls dream. ...more
Lindsey was a nurse who survived a vicious attack while working a late shift at the hospital. Seems they were targeted since the late shift ...more
Cliffhanger: No on the romance. Yes on the general series arc.
I really enjoyed the first book, so I was excited to read this book. The first part of the book was really compelling. I couldn't stop reading at all because I wanted to know what happened to the heroine, how she dealt with the tragedy, and how it would eventually lead her to the hero. Like the first book, the main characters had a one-night stand over a year ago, bu ...more
Now their crazy uncle is back at the match making and this time it's Maverick's turn to fall into love. Which of course he doesn't believe in marriage nor does he want to get married, ever. Ha, yeah... okay.
Maverick and Lindsey also happened to be a one night fling - at Stormy and Cooper's wedding. This book definitely followed the same sort of pattern. However, Lindsey and Maverick have one thing in common: PT ...more
This is the second book in the Billionaire Aviators series by Melody Anne and it did not disappoint! It's also a standalone if you prefer to read them that way but I think that the book is even better if you've read the first book well, first.
The link between the two books in this series is absolutely seamless. This one picks up very shortly after the first book ended and it felt like I was meeting up with some old friends. The characters were extremely consistent - that's a big thing! Some aut ...more
Ein ganz schönes Katz und Maus Spiel bei den beiden. An sich hat mir Maverick gut gefallen im Gegensatz zu Lindsey. Aber es nicht so ganz der Funke übergesprungen ...more
ahaha – welcome to matchmaking 101… why wouldn’t the stuff that worked out so well in book 1 of the Billionaire Aviators also work in the newest book by Melody Anne. I just read “Turbulent Desires” and I liked it as much as I did the first book. Also its nice to meet our old friends from the first book again. With Lindsey being the BFF to Stormy who’s story was featured in the first book, you can be sure that Maverick will not be far as Cooper is here as well.
Maverick and Lindsey have a story t ...more
Turbulent desires is another in the long running series of meddling fathers and their friends finding partners for their children. I have read most of them and enjoyed them, and this was no exception.
Lindsey was subject to a brutal attack in the hospital where she worked, and a year later is still seriously limited by her fears. Living in the cabin in the garden of her best friend, Stormy and husband Cooper, she is hidi ...more
The beginning of the story was a little slow and honestly I felt like hitting Lindsey a few times. I could see what was going to happen but the story moved way to slow for me and pulled me out of the novel several times.
The book catches readers up with those from the first book and I am sure it will happened in the next in the series as well.
Melody Anne created well developed ...more
I gave up reading this book. I didn’t like the hero and the lack of critical distance between the implied author and the heroine and the hero’s cockyness.
A sexy beast of a man
The man was lethal
His kiss was full of confidence and ability
Probably the most dangerous man she’d ever met
Maverick was the definition of the ultimate man-candy
[Hero] - I’m impossible to resist
I'm grateful to the author, the publisher an ...more
Wow this was an amazing read and I truly enjoyed Mav and Lindsey's story.
Lindsey's attack has left her with deep emotional scars. Her physical wounds have healed but her walls still remain. She's closed herself off from people, friends and family.
Mav has been patient with Lindsey but now he's on a mission to bring Lindsey out of the hole she's buried herself into and get her to start living life again. Easier said than done!
I really e ...more
Following a traumatic attack and the death of two colleagues at the hospital where Lindsey works a nurse, she emotionally shuts down. Maverick, her best friend's brother in law and a former one night stand of hers, wants to rescue her. He is gorgeous, charming, a player and insistent about being around her. Lindsey is very attracted to him and so tempted but she wants more than a fling. I loved the build up to th ...more
Everything about this story was mesmerizing...starting out in a dark place and then growing, evolving into a HEA romance that nearly made my heart sig ...more
2nd book in this series-featuring Lindsey and Maverick. Whe Lindsey an ER nurse is attack and becomes withdrawn -Maverick is there to help. The both know what hurt and damage is but falling in love was not on the market. But they both do. Great book.
