Publisher's Summary

ER nurse Lindsey Helm used to be strong. Then a late-night attack at the hospital nearly killed her and left two close colleagues dead. Now Lindsey has retreated from the world. She knows she needs to move on, but every hint of danger seems threatening - including a certain sexy flyboy who's determined to show Lindsey what she's missing. But falling for F-18 pilot Maverick Armstrong is a risk she can't afford...

Maverick knows that fear can eat away at the soul, and he won't leave Lindsey to that fate. She needs someone to reach her and to remind her of the exhilaration and unbelievable passion of being touched. He'll help her heal, and then he'll walk away. He has to walk away. Because Maverick swore he would never fall in love and never marry. But this is a rescue operation, and Maverick will stay the course - even if things get hazardous. Even if saving Lindsey means surrendering his heart in the process...

Interesting

I do not know how many men read your books, but I am one. I am also a retired military officer. The story was good, but there were a few errors in your research. The USAF does not fly the F/A 18. It is flown by the Navy and the Marines and the Australian and Spanish Air Force. Very few officers, especially in the Air Force go to boot camp. Officers are usually commissioned by the Academy, ROTC (College) or Officer Candidate school. To fly jets you must be at the top of your class.

Turbulent Desires

Loved this one! This one is about Maverick Armstrong, who flies F-18s in the Air Force and is determined to not get married even to get his inheritance, and Lindsey Helm, an ER nurse studying to be a nurse practitioner who is attacked while working and now suffering from PTSD. Oh, these two are made for each other. Maverick knows how to handle her and he certainly treats her well and supports her and cares for her until she cannot stand it any longer and has to seduce him. Will they figure out they are made for each other before they cannot come back...

This one ends with a look into Nick's book and what a glimpse it is. MUST GET THIS ONE NOW!

Seriously...

We are supposed to believe that after a week a person should be done w the trauma of being attacked and 2 friends killed. Not at all. For everyone of the other characters to push on the lead female character to be okay was just disgusting.

Another good addition to the Billionaire Aviators series. Mac was different than I thought he was in story 1, much nicer. They make a great couple and I hope we get to see more of them in the upcoming stories.

Who doesn't love a romantic guy

So I read a couple reviews on GR and not sure why they were bad. I enjoyed this story...the beginning was riveting w the assault on Lindsay and murder of her coworkers. We're introduced to Maverick as Lindsay is mourning the loss of her friends...he is the bro-in-law of her bff & they had.a one night stand at that wedding. Anyhoo, a yr later & Mav is on a mission to bring Lindsay out of hiding...she has been afraid of everything since the attack. Mav talks Linds into co-chair for a fundraiser and the two develop a relationship. Mav is thoughtful and pretty romantic...will he stick to the plan of drawing Linds out of her shell and then walking away? Definitely worth the read.

Maverick Armstrong is impossible not to fall for

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 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.

WORTH THE READ/LISTENING

I loved seeing air force pilot Maverick (Mav) Armstrong & ER Lindsay Helm deny their deep attraction of each other.
But heck did Lindsay have to go through a terrible trauma and becoming practically a hermit & only really spends time with her best friend Stormy & her husband Cooper the eldest of Maverick's brothers) & their baby.
Well that is until we see this romero decide he will save Lindsay from herself like he had to after his capture during the war & god what a way to bring her out of herself & believe in living & not everyone will harm you. This is where you can see these 2 falling for each other, but they both have always said that they'll never marry, which I find so weird as both set of parents have had loving marriages.
Great story

Dire. Dont waste your money or credit

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Better story line, more believable characters - the narration didn't help but not sure she could of improved

Has Turbulent Desires put you off other books in this genre?

yes

Would you be willing to try another one of Teri Clark Linden’s performances?

yes

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Turbulent Desires?

The characters were very bland and I was drawn into the story at all
