This is my first Melody Anne story, and overall it was good, but compared to other contemporary romances in my library, this one did leave me fee..Show More »ling little underwhelmed. It had a decent plot, the characters were likable, and there is some romance, but there all on the milder side. I give this story three stars, had it been more intense, or exciting, it would have easily been a four star story.
Some spoilers; On his deathbed, the father to the Armstrong brothers gives his sons some shocking news about his last wishes. In order for the brothers to receive their inheritance, they must clean up their act, become successful members of society, and marry. The brothers collectively are not happy about the news, and each handle it their own way. Six months later, Cooper Armstrong is out with his brother, having a good time, when he meets a beautiful women. They talk, flirt, and spend the night together, but they never give their names. The next morning, while Stormy is doing her walk of shame, she tells herself this was just a one night stand, and she will never see her dreamy green eye guy again. Six years later, Stormy is working at a small latte shop located in the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, and is shocked speechless when she comes face to face with her dreamy green eye guy. She gets frazzled when she realizes this arrogant, confident, sexy airplane pilot doesn't remember her.... at all. That's fine with her, she just won't tell him, and will deflect all his advances. Through a series of unfortunate events, they end up in the same house, and when recognizes finally sets in, the games begin. Along the way, there's plot twists, romance and a few sex scenes.....some more steamier than others.
This is the first story I've listened too narrated by Teri, and I thought she did a great job. Yeah, I would have preferred a m/f dual narration, but Teri did a great job on both the m/f characters.
While the story did leave me feeling underwhelmed, it kept me engaged, the narration was good, and we get insight into the other brothers. They all sounded intriguing, especially Ace, so I hoping the next story will be more exciting. We'll see. I listened for free with KU.
Though this is a complete stand alone, I have to say I am completely in love with Melody Anne's Turbulent Desires, the second book in her Billionaire ..Show More »Aviators series. It is filled with suspense, romance, combustible chemistry and of course a meddling uncle who sees fit to stick his nose into his stubborn nephew's lives. From start to finish, I could not put this incredible story down. I loved every moment and found myself automatically one-clicking the next book in the story to find out what will happen next in the incredible world Melody Anne has created.
In this series, it focuses on four brothers, They are all independently wealthy, but as a part of their inheritance, they must settle down, become upstanding citizens within their community and find a woman to settle down with. None of them have any intentions of doing this, least of all Maverick. He is completely happy being in the military and flying jets. When he is introduced to his sister-in-law's best friend, Stormy he is convinced he is the one who must help her out of her shell of a world she has created for herself after a nearly tragic attack at work one unforgettable night. But will he be able to do this without changing everything he knows about his existence?
I completely devoured this story. I absolutely fell in love with Melody's ability to develop characters as well as a world I never wanted to leave. I can't wait to find out what happens next for the Armstrong men in her aviator world.
PS- The audio version of this story only enhanced Melody's work. Teri Clark Linden worked her magic as a narrator and make the world Melody created come to life. I will definitely be listening to more from her in the future as well.
Been looking forward to this book for a what seems like a long time, but god damn, why all this rambling, same thing with the previous books. Just ge..Show More »t to the point. The female character just kept on talking and talking and talking. Like 2 chapters of rambling. The other parts of the book were good, that's why I gave it three stars.
