Still fuming over her brother’s betrayal, she struggles to rustle up a few more eligible men for her anemic relationship network and a medic for the crew before someone dies on her watch. But she thinks her luck is finally beginning to change when they uncover her conniving brother’s stash of valuable superhero seeds.

Hoping the plant’s mysterious powers can buff both her crew and her bank account, she races to turn the crop into cash. But when her alluring ex, Ken, returns, managing her bedroom threatens to steal her focus. With old wounds reopening, jealous competitors, and dangerous side effects, Vivian fears for her life… and her heart.

Are she and her newfound network doomed, or can she finally chart a course for success and love?

Re-read review:
I am so glad I am re-reading this series as it's so much fun to be back in this world and experience Vivian's adventures all over again. In this book there is a lot happening, I liked spotting some more of the foreshadowing for later events. One of the highlights of this book is seeing Vivian's network coming together. I also liked seeing the guys meet each other and how Vivian's relationships with them progresses. There is more of Ken in this book and I feel like this is the book where you really get to know him. I also liked meeting Gus and how he joins the crew on this one.

The AI narration is pleasant to listen to and I feel like any small issues I had with the previous two books have all been smoothed out here. All in all this was another great listen and I am on to the next one!

First read review:
I received a free copy of this book from the author and voluntarily reviewed it.

Wow what a read this was! There was so much happening, so many twists and turns. I just wanted to keep reading and was sad when I hit the end as I wanted to know more. What's going to happen next to these characters and how their lives are continuing after these twists that shook things up and if Vivian will get together with Gus or not.

This series continues to be so good! There is so much happening in this book, most of the ongoing plot lines make major progression. There were so many reveals, twists and new discoveries and directions. There really isn't a dull moment. There are the seeds, the search for her brother, the relationship network, the people who looking for her brother, the journey to buy back the farm, the whole ship and Flyght, a new mystery with another shipment and more. It kept my attention from start to finish and when it ended I just wish I had the next book already as I wanted to read more.

I love following Vivian's journey. Things aren't easy for her and she again hits several low points and trouble she has to deal with, but there also are enough bright moments. She's a great main character, she has a lot to deal with, but she keeps standing. She tries to do what she thinks is right and at times she might not always make the best decisions and I wish she would fully trust her guys, but it's all realistic and logical. I think it will take time for her to fully realize she can depend on her guys and they're stronger together and slowly I think she's getting there.

I really love seeing the romance and the relationship network develop in this one. While in book 1 we only saw Ken and in book 2 only Jinzo, in this book they're all together. They have to figure out how to make things work and things are awkward for a bit, but I loved seeing them figure things out and how they both care so much about Vivian. There were some great scenes with them all together and also scenes with just Vivian and one of her guys.

In book 1 I wasn't sure about Ken, I just didn't fully feel their romance, but this book really is about Ken. We find out why they broke up at first and later find out exactly what Ken went through then and how he dealt with things. It all makes so much more sense now. I feel like I got a better feel for him and the depth of his feelings for Vivian. I really grew to like him in this book. I also loved seeing how he and Jinzo interacted. There is still plenty of Jinzo in this book, although a bit less than in book 2. And while the romance is an important part of the book there is so much going on besides that as well.

The characters are one of my favorite parts of this book. The whole crew is so interesting. There also is a new crew member they add in this book, a medic. There are some sparks between him and Vivian and I wish Vivian would go for it, but there are things in their way. I kinda like it that he doesn't have the same prestige and value as the other guys and I really hope he will be part of Vivian's relationship network. It's clear he really cares about her and he seems competent and capable as well. Thanks to the authors casting inspiration post I also could easily visualize how he looked.

Besides that there is the usual crew of Skylar, Marcelo, Carlos and Lia. All of them play and important role and has something going on in this book. There's a twist involving Marcelo. A new direction for Skylar. Carlos has an important role, especially later on in the book with what's going on with the ship. And Lia has some nice scenes as well, especially involving the animals. And the AI named Ai, I like her personality, although there's less of that in this book as there's something going on with her in this book. And I really want to know how that gets resolved. Then there are all the animals on the ship as well. Vivian's dog, as well as sheep, goats, alien squirrels and more who live on the spaceship.

I also enjoyed seeing more of the Rio wildlife, we see more of the strange plants that grow there and even get a glimpse of how they work. And there are some more scenes with the creepy alien animals that live there. It really comes to life and I could vividly visualize that scene with all the strange animals and plants around.

To summarize: This was an excellent third book in this series. There's so much going on, lots of plot lines that continue and progress, changes and important scenes with the characters, the romance that develops and expands. It was awesome. There are some great twists and reveals in this book. There's so much going on and I wish I had book 4 already as I want to read more. This series is amazing and I love following the adventure of Vivian, her lovers and the crew. There are some interesting developments on the romance front in this book, we learn more about Ken and I grew to like him a lot more. And Jinzo and Ken are both on the ship with Vivian in this book and I enjoyed seeing how they all tried to make it work. The whole group of side characters is a lot of fun to read about and they all have their great moments in this book. I am really curious about Gus and want to know if he joins Vivian's relationship network. There's also more we see of the alien plants and animals in Rio, which was so well done. This world really comes alive. I love the characters, the story, the romance and the world. If you like sci-fi romance books, you don't want to miss this series.

High Flyght is the third book in the Flyght series by S.J. Pajonas, and it’s my favourite of the three books thus far. All have been addictive reads, but there was more packed into this one – in terms of events happening and new details introduced – that had me unable to put it down.

The Flyght series is one that needs to be read in order, with things developing wonderfully throughout. I’ve had plenty of ideas about what is to come, numerous elements of what I wanted to see happen, and this third book packs plenty of these elements into it. We get some answers, we’re introduced to some new elements, and everything keeps you hooked throughout.

Without a doubt, this is a fabulous addiction to the series that will have you desperate to see what comes next.

Just finished my ARC for High Flyght!!! I freaking love this story line and plot arc ❤️ I really love how the relationship network is being integrated. The men working things out in the background (quietly, and amicably) so that Vivi can push thru the multitude of other issues is a nice change from the general RH world where it's always a bigger focus. I'm loving all the twisty turns this story is taking, and can NOT wait to see this next network connection.... Plus, and I'm not sure he'll ever play into this role, but I'd love to see Marcelo in her network!

I am usually pretty good about picking things up even when I start a series in the middle, unfortunately for me this book was not one that captivated me enough to want to read the first one or any after this one.

I felt like I was trapped in Crazy Asians, mean girls and a combination of weird sci-fi movies with a dizzying array of characters being introduced for us to keep track of with a bunch of teenagers running the show.

This felt like cut throat chess and if you weren’t at least 8 steps ahead of your opponent you were toast.

The sex vibes for me weren’t there, it felt exceedingly forced and I just flipped past it when it came up.

I was unfortunately never drawn into the story and therefore never formed a connection with any of the characters. For me this story was a miss.

I love this series! Just when things seem to be working out for Vivian, something else comes along. So far the only thing going her way is her relationship with Jinzo and Ken. I can't wait to see what awaits her in the next book!

Excellent conclusion to the Flyght series. Vivian is a great character to root for. Her internal and external conflicts made me wince and hope that she'd come out on top. Excellent world building, something I always expect from Ms. Pajonas.

I am really enjoying how the storyline is meshing as well as her relationships. Viv is an awesome woman with a horrible brother.

High Flyght is the third book in the Flyght series and it had me on quite a high! I loved this book and the progress made for the hunt of Vivian's brother. The romances bloomed as well, and that made me especially happy! The pace is excellent in this installment and at about 90% Pajonas had me jumping off the couch in excitement. I can't wait to read the next book in this series.

Filled to bursting

Lots of story happening. Can’t wait until the next one. I hope they figure out early in #4 where Tomu is, because we certainly have.
