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

1.5 stars

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.

Den ersten Teil der "Passion Pilots" Reihe habe ich eigentlich sehr gerne gelesen, aber der zweite Teil konnte mich irgendwie nicht so richtig packen.

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

Cute sweet read

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.

A long time ago, I liked some of Melody Anne’s books, especially when Joseph and his crew got to meddling. I moved beyond sweet little billionaire romances and my tastes turned a little darker and grittier. In need of a bit of a change, I nabbed this ARC thinking something sweet would be nice. To my surprise, this didn’t go down sweet at all. More like Sour.

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
Sultry Steamy Reading
Safety Level: Safe. No mention of other men or other women
Cliffhanger: No on the romance. Yes on the general series arc.
Ending: HEA

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
Mindy Lou's Book Review
For a story with a heavy subject, it was also sweet and tame. Lindsey isn't healing from an attack she suffered at her job until Maverick decides he's had enough and forces her back to the living. Having suffered his own trauma as a prisoner of war, he knows she needs constant human contact to keep her from hiding away from the world. The dates Maverick takes her on are creative and very romantic but he isn't thinking long term. He just wants her to start living again and then he will be able to ...more
Right after I finished Turbulent Intentions I just had to jump into Turbulent Desires.

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


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
Maverick ist niemand der locker lässt und das darf Lindsey am eigen Leib erfahren. nach einem tragischen Ereignis bei ihrem Job zieht sie sich komplett zurück, doch Maverick will das sie wieder am Leben teil nimmt und lässt sich was einfallen. Und alles rein freundschaftlich versteht sich, doch Gefühle und Leidenschaft sehen das anders.

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

Well, this was good just not as good as the first one in this series. The conflict between the hero and the heroine seemed contrived. The dogs were a nice touch. Happy ☺reading 📚!

Growing up Lindsey Helm may not have had much but she was secure in the fact that she was loved, protected and wanted to make a difference. That pureness of heart lead her into a career as an ER nurse. It was the best of both worlds. Not only could she make a difference, she could help others while doing it. But life can turn on a dime and one tragedy filled night has left it's mark on the once confident, positive thinking Lindsey. Guilt, pain and fear have become her constant companies and her ...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.

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

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

I didn't read the first book in the series but the author does a good job of covering and catching up the readers fast.
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.

Two people dealing with a past. Maverick was a military man. No need to get tied down. Just live in the moment. When a family friend struggles with a past filled with hurt and pain, Maverick vows to help her. Can he do it without getting attached? I enjoyed find out! I enjoyed watching Maverick and Lindsey deal with their inner issues and find happiness along the way.

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.
Some quotes:
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

I received this book from net gallery for an honest review.

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 had high hopes for this book because I absolutely loved book one, but I was wrong. This is book 2 in the Aviators series and it is about Maverick and Lindsey, Stormy's best friend from book one. Lindsey and Maverick had a one night stand at Stormy's wedding (sound familiar) and a year later Lindsey is attacked at work. She was nearly killed and this experience caused her to get PTSD. Stormy and Cooper offers her place to stay and Maverick makes it his mission to show Lindsey that the world can ...more

I started reading this book not realizing it was a spin off from the Anderson's stories and also the second book in a series. I loved the book! Storyline was amazing, the prologue was very very intense. Lindsey is an ER nurse and is involved in an attack, Maverick is her best friend Stormy's brother in law. They previously met at Stormy and Cooper's wedding and since then Maverick has been obsessed with her but they don't meet up again until many months later. I loved how Maverick put his attrac ...more

I am a fan of this author and have read the previous books about the Anderson family so when I was offered the chance to read and review the second book in this series there was no hesitation. I very much enjoy reading a Melody Anne story. She has a terrific writing style that flows. As a reader I am typically drawn into the story right from the beginning and can't wait to see what happens. This story is no exception. The writing was tight and the story just unfolded in a way that kept me engage ...more

I was given an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest and independent review.
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

I truly enjoy the reoccurring characters that this author interjects into her stories...It keeps her other stories alive, reaffirming the emotional attachment that was formed while reading her other stories. Maverick is the quintessential man, sexy hot as all get out, yet at the same time romantic and passionate, catering to Lindsey and her needs.

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

I was kind of hoping this story had more to it. It was a free Goodreads giveaway for my Kindle. It was a pleasant, steamy love story between Lindsey and Mav. It reminded me of a Lifetime movie. Mav was the typical male, not wanting to commit but he was beyond typical and believable because he really did a lot for Lindsey's PTSD, he put her needs first. I haven't met too many men like that. There are more stories in this series and even though this one left me hanging, I probably won't read them. ...more
