Love is blind …. I only wish it was.
Because then I wouldn’t see what I can never have.

They say when you know, you know.
What a load of nonsense.
Because the only thing I know is …. he’s off limits.
Workplace relationships are inappropriate and seedy.

Every morning I step onto his plane.
Every morning he smiles and says a polite hello.
I give him a controlled nod, acknow

Okay wow, this started off as a slow burn and then boom! Paige and Mason were just perfect! If you’re really in need of a guy who isn’t threatened by your position at work then time to enter this story because Mason is just the right guy for you! Lucky Paige, got a handsome devil along with a mushy heart!

I really enjoyed this book.
My first by this Author and I have to say it was well done. I did find the more I went through the book the sexy vibe was wearing a bit and it turned to mush a little but I still did enjoy it.
Overall I loved The sexy Captain, his Tiger and their story.😍

Private pilot Mason has been lusting after his boss, CEO Paige, ever since his first day on the job. But he's never made a move or let his feelings be known aside from not so covertly watching her as she saunters into the plane for each flight.

And then one night Mason can tell she needs someone to talk to. A few too many drinks, and the blazing chemistry between the two, and bam, suddenly they're not so professional any longer. But they'll need to have more than chemistry if they want to

There was a lot of potential in this title. Unfortunately, most of it was unrealized.

I did actually finish it, I think because I was hopeful that some of the potential, the idea of the woman attracted to her pilot...both of them at the tops of their careers...but no.

I am sure there are other readers who loved this title, but the characters, and their interactions, fell flat for me.

I am not able to recommend this title.

Ex-military pilot Mason White is the total package complete with his own demons that he tries to control.
Paige Ellen is the CEO of her father's company an only child and daddy's little girl even at 39 years old. Her father has always had a tight rein on his daughter, groomed to live the best CEO life.

Mason works for Ms Ellen as her private pilot so it is totally unprofessional the way Mason watches and feels each time Paige steps onto his plane ready for the next corporate meeting wearing those

What better way to spend the afternoon than sitting reading one of Ms Deen’s books. They always hit the spot and once again she has delivered a book that makes you swoon, laugh and cry. Private Pilot includes a little bit of everything, it was sexy, steamy, cheeky, funny and flirty wrapped around some suspense. Which I’m not going to discuss and my lips are sealed.

Mason loves his job as a pilot, he flies the boss in her plane from meeting to meeting. It doesn’t hurt that his boss Pai

Paige is the head of her company. She doesn’t have time for men, no matter how attracted she is to Mason. He also works for her - as her pilot - so any relationship they started would be highly frowned upon. But what good is being the boss if you can’t make your own rules? At least that’s what Mason tries to get her to see. Unfortunately all is not as it seems with her company, and the last thing she needs is more drama from a workplace relationship. Will they be able to work together to save th ...more

Okay... I dragged my feet a shit load reading this book because the sexual chemistry between Paige & Mason was off the freakin' charts🤤😎

Paige was not what I expected at all. Her sassy, bossy attitude made her extremely feisty and I loved that because it showed her strength.

Captain White on the other hand made me fall in love guys😍😂 I could not get over how caring, loving and generous of a man Mason is.

Paige is Mason's kryptonite.
Mason is Paige's forever she never knew she needed.

Oh. My. Goodness.

I’m not even going to go into how much I love Paige and Mason because this plot twist was not at all what I expected. I may have suspected him, and then you it was confirmed when I read on. But wow this was honestly one of your best books hands down.

This book took me by surprise! After reading the blurb I thought it would be a light hearted romance. Nothing too serious. I was completely wrong and pleasantly surprised.

Mason is a pilot who now spends his career flying private jets. Or one jet in particular. The boss lady is a woman he would love to break her barriers and see her smile, help her let her hair down. She drives him crazy and they haven’t exchanged more than pleasantries. He is determined to make that change.

Karen Dean has turned what could have been just a light hearted read into a book a book with a great story!

It isn't easy for Paige Ellen - her life mapped out for her 39 years ago when she was dumped on the doorstep of the owner of Ellen Corporation (who wasn't even her father) her destiny was also to become CEO and take over from the only Father she has ever known. She has no friends her life is her work and making her father proud. The one bright spot in her world although she won't admit it i

I liked the overall premise of this story. Mason has been working for Paige for several months and he's incredibly attracted to her. She's a high power CEO who needs a private plane for her frequent business trips. She keeps a tight lid over her emotions and professionalism at all times is paramount to her. Sure, she's noticed how sexy Mason is, but she's not one to make a move. It seemed ripe for angst and steam. However, the way the story really went didn't quite meet those expectations. For P ...more

Private Pilot is so much more than a light hearted romance ! Get ready for a steamy, emotional flight with Mason and Paige .
Mason is a ex-military pilot that is carrying a bit of baggage from his service days. He is now the private pilot to a lady boss. She is prim, proper, stoic, intelligent and sexy beyond his wildest dreams. He would love to break down her high walls and develop a personal relationship .

I really really enjoyed this book. This was my first book my Karen Deen and will most definitely not be my last. This book had a little bit of it all, it was steamy and witty, and had a little bit of suspense. Not to mention our hot hero pilot Mason. He was ALPHA to a T. When you think of an overbearing alpha Mason is exactly that. He was bossy and protective, but we also got to see his softer side which helps you fall for him more.
He really compliments our heroine Paige well, she is a girl boss

Paige is a dedicated hard working CEO running her father’s company. Mason is the gorgeous captain flying her plane. He may be the best at his job, but he also knows how to live life with some fun. The one word Paige hasn’t experienced in a long time. She’d give anything to let loose and indulge in what she wants. That includes the captain. Just when Mason gets Paige on board to take a chance, Paige finds out that someone is embezzling from her company.

I only have read another book who's hero was a pilot, and that was awhile ago. That's probably the first reason why I decided to go for it. Then there was the intrigued blurb. So I said" yes I'm in"

What's my honest opinion about " Private pilot"?

It's a good read. With so many steamy scenes, which stand out all his skills in the bedroom.

And that will make you think he is in a way or another taking the main part of the story, puting the heroine in the background.

Well that's not the case. Because

I really have to start out by saying how HOT HOT HOT Private Pilot's cover is, because I mean, WOW! That's the first amazing piece of goodness about this book. Next up, Mason White...OH MY HELL he's soooooo sexy! He's an ex-military pilot with demons attached. Then there's Paige Ellen, the CEO of her father's company, and frankly, a total daddy's girl, though her father keeps her on a short leash.

A feisty, sizzling story!

This is my first Karen Deen book and I've added another book boyfriend to my library. Oh, Mason. *sigh*

Being married to a pilot, I was happy to see the little things weren't skipped (like pre-flight checks, and Hotel Oscar Tango pilot lingo
😉 Ha ha ha! Mind you, I think Mason may have skipped a walk around on the first time we met him at the aircraft. Every good pilot does that check, even if ground crew or engineers have already done it... or so I've been told. 🤪).

Private Pilot ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Holy Hell that was 🔥 stars.... Please excuse me while I sit here trying to cool myself down.. 😂. Hot Damn Karen what a book!!! Mason is one seriously hot take no for answer alpha pilot. What Mason wanted Mason got and he wanted his sexy seemingly uptight CEO boss Paige. Both Mason & Paige had insecurities but with a connection so sweet and sizzling were able to find a HEA. Before a HEA this book has a number of twists and turns making it impossible for me to put down. An ...more

Amazing! When Karen Deen writes a novel it submerges you into the story. The character development truly makes you feel the happiness and pain they go through. Mason and Paige's emotional rollercoaster is not taken lightly. Being an only child that is taught and told at a young age what their life would be like is not easy. Especially when a hot aviator wearing pilot disturbs that dream.

These two characters have so much love and compassion not only for each other but to others too. Paige works

Paige has spent her whole life trying to please her father and show him that she is capable of taking over his corporation. She has been single minded in her purpose to the detriment of her personal life but that doesn’t mean she hasn’t noticed how sexy her pilot is. When everything she has worked for is in jeopardy, she didn’t expect that he would be the one person who would stand by her.

Mason still bears the emotional scars of his military career and is now a pilot. He can’t deny how attracted

Wow, wow, wow! That’s all I can say about Private Pilot by Karen Deen. From page one I was hooked. Mason is an ex-military pilot working for strong and self sufficient CEO, Paige. We’re shown their attraction from the first moment and let’s just say it was 🔥HOT🔥.

There were so many moments while reading this that I was so thankful I was alone so I wouldn’t have to explain why I was laughing and blushing at the same time. I went from laughing to blushing to being love struck over Mason. I love fin

I sincerely applaud Karen's decision to write a romance book where the woman is the badass centerpiece. Sure, Mason is all army-style, in control, wants to take control so she can rest once in a while, but Paige is amazing.

She's strong-willed, takes no BS from the men in her business life, knows what she wants and how to get it. She's quite inspiring and I enjoyed reading a character like her for a change.

And Mason... well, he's just exactly what she needs and the devilish pilot knows this and p

Mason could be my sexy pilot any day wow he was HOT!!! I dont know how Paige resisted him for so long.

Paige was off limits to Mason as she is his boss but the chemistry was to strong for them to resist.

The love Mason has for his framily as Daisy puts it was amazing as with his loyalty to them aswell.

The banter the sexy four have with eachother cracks me up and i love how the girls put them in place everytime

Private Pilot by Karen Deen is a contemporary romance that follows CEO Paige and her hot Pilot Mason as they try to deny their feelings but inevitably navigate a relationship of hotness, angst, tension and melting moments.
Paige and Mason are absolutely perfect for each other and Karen has done a great job of building these characters, their lives and interactions with each other as well as the people around them.

Private Pilot was a sexy, funny, and exhilarating romance that I could not get enough of. Karen Deen is a new author to me but now I am addicted to her words. Her words made me forget I was reading, and the images in the book soon started free-flowing through my mind allowing me to experience her scenarios first hand...and boy was it an experience. I highly recommend reading Private Pilot by Karen Deen. To be honest, lighthearted stories are no

No better way to spend a weekend, reading a smoking hot new read from Karen Deen, how lucky is Paige to have her own drop dead gorgeous pilot. Mason in ex military and private pilot for Paige, who is the CEO of her father’s company. The banter between these two is so much fun, she is so prim and proper and a little stuffy in the beginning, but her attraction to Mason finally gets her to loosen up.
