playboy pilot.jpgTitle:  Playboy Pilot
Author:  Vi Keeland, Penelope Ward
Publication Date: April 11th 2016
Plot:   From New York Times Bestselling authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward, comes a sexy new standalone novel.

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.

Then, he left.

I thought I'd never see him again.

But fate had other plans.

Surprise! He was the pilot of my flight.

The bigger surprise was the adventure that followed after the plane landed.

Carter was dangerous and always on the move.

Even though our connection was magnetic, I knew it was only temporary.

He would give me tickets, and I would follow him around the world to exotic places.

A bevy of flight attendant exes and rumors about Carter's reputation were never far behind.

I didn't know what to believe.

But I was addicted. Nothing else mattered anymore. And I was going to get hurt. Because a part of me wanted to be the one to finally ground the playboy pilot.

At the very least, he was taking me on a thrilling ride.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn't see coming.

 My Review 

☆ I received an ARC via TRSOR PR in exchange for an honest review. Thank you! ☆

I've been waiting for another great 'pilot' based book ever since RK Lilley's Up in the Air series, and I have to say, this one was just as wonderful.  Not going to lie, I do still favor UINA more, but as a book standalone co-written by two authors, I feel that readers will get their thrills, kicks, and smutt all in one after reading this.

Playboy Pilot is a lot more than just your panty melting Cassanova, who happens to be a pilot, meets feisty heroine, who reforms said Cassanova and yada yada yada.  It was about figuring yourself out, second chances, self-growth, and realization.  Sometimes, you need to bleed to make yourself stronger.  I'm not saying that anything like that or drastic occurs.  It does not.  I mean it metaphorically actually.

Both Carter and Kendall are put through the ringer in this, in a tale that will test their wills and limits, as well interjects a bit of smutt and humor in the midst.

Can't wait to read more from these lovely and talented authors!!

My Rating:


“Carter? What are you doing?”
I laughed under my breath and banged the back of my head against the wood. “Praying?”
“Do you always breathe like that when you’re praying?”
“It’s an intense prayer.”
“What are you really doing?”
“I think you might know what I’m really doing, Kendall.”
“Can I come in?”
Still fully erect, I tucked my cock back into my pants as best I could before opening the door.
Her eyes trailed down to my massive erection. “I’m sorry….to make you resort to that.”
“It’s okay. My hand and I haven’t spent time like this since I was a teenager. I think he missed me.”
“What were you thinking about?”
“Yeah…but what specifically?”
“It was this fantasy of fucking you on the dance floor back at the club.”
She looked down at me again. Her expression was serious when she asked, “You need some help?”
“I thought you said we weren’t going to go there.”
“I can’t have sex with you. But I want to touch you. I could take my clothes off, let you finish what you started. You know…help you.”
Looking up at the ceiling, I shook my head. “You have no fucking clue, do you?”
“What do you mean?”
“How crazy you make me. There’s no halfway with you. Jerking off with your naked body right in front of me…not being able to do what I really want to you…would be torture. I don’t have that kind of willpower, not with you, not anymore. Even when I kiss you, all I can think about is burying myself inside of you. But you naked in front of me? Too much, Kendall. When you strip down for me, I want it to be when you’re ready to let me have you. Otherwise, it’s better if I don’t know what I’m missing out on.”
Looking filled with remorse, she waved her hands. “Okay. I get it. I’m sorry…for interrupting.”
“Go back to bed. I’ll be right there.”
After Kendall left, I closed my eyes in regret. Was I crazy for turning her away like that?
Now that she knew what I was up to in here, I couldn’t relax. Still needing release like a motherfucker, I turned on the shower and got in. Ironically, I jerked myself to thoughts of her naked body against the bathroom door and imagined she was watching me.

Fuck my life.

 My Review 

☆I received an ARC from Social Butterfly PR in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!!☆

In entirety, I found this book to be 'okay.'  It was good, but it wasn't life changing or amazing.  Kinda fell into the book cliche of superstar bad boy athlete meets off limits spitfire female category and the rest is history after that.

I don't know.  While I did enjoy the main characters' banters and interactions, something about this novel just could not surpass it being great to me.  Was it the writing?  Was it my mood?  I can't pinpoint my finger.  I mean, it was entertaining.  I just wish it delve a little deeper and contained more layers to it than what I had gotten from it.

So over all, a likable read.  Just, missing something for me.
