INTO THE BLUE
Series: Wild Aces #2
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Author: Chanel Cleeton
Release Date: July 5, 2016
From the author of Fly with Me and the Capital Confessions Novels comes the newest in the sexy Wild Aces Romance series.
Eric Jansen—call sign Thor—loves nothing more than pushing his F-16 to the limit. Returning home to South Carolina after a tragic loss, he hopes to fix the mistake he made long ago, when he chose the Air Force over his fiancée.
Becca Madison isn’t quick to welcome Thor back. She can’t forget how he shattered her heart. But Thor won’t give up once he’s set his sights on what he wants—and he wants Becca.
Thor shows Becca that he’s no longer the impulsive boy he used to be, and Becca finds herself irresistibly drawn to him. But will Thor be able to walk away from his dream of flying the F-16 for their love or does his heart belong to the sky?
It seemed like my entire adult life had been spent either running from or to this one girl.
Confession time: I’m an angst addict. OK, so that’s probably not that big a secret, but I’m going somewhere with this so bear with me. Now if I told you this was a sweet and sexy second chance romance that had no stupid misunderstandings, miscommunication, and light on the angst and yet I still read it in one sitting; would you believe me? Because that’s exactly what happened with Into The Blue. It was perfect! A fighter pilot with the call sign, Thor, the woman he walked away from but never got over, and a second chance romance that will have you rooting for both characters…intrigued yet? You should be.
Maybe I was a fool. I probably was. But the thing with love was that once you felt it, it was impossible to turn off.
Ten years ago, Eric “Thor” Jansen walked away from his fiancé and their life together in South Carolina. He was young and torn between his career as a fighter pilot and the woman he loves. He made the choice that’s haunted him since. Now after a tragic accident, he needs to get his head together, and so he comes back to the town he left behind and the woman he’s never forgotten.
Becca Madison was never the same after Eric left. Ten years and she’s still not over the man who broke her heart. But she had her career as a lawyer to think about and she wasn’t ready to give that up for a man. Now a successful attorney for the solicitor’s office, she has everything but a man who owns her heart the way Eric once did.
This was a decade of pent-up unrequited whatever-we-were, and we kissed like we couldn’t get enough of each other.
Their road to a second chance was a slow burn but a steady one. There was no unnecessary distractions like stupid drama or crazy angst. It was essentially one long grovel and I absolutely loved it. If you’re looking for swoons, it just doesn’t get better than Thor.
Holy hell, in this moment, his call sign seemed totally apropos. He looked like the god of thunder and lightning, like a warrior who commanded and men followed.
He was this perfect combination of endearingly sweet but with an edge. I wasn’t sure if I’d accept his reason for leaving at first, but man, he proved me so wrong. This is a man that’s determined to right his wrongs and I loved the way he went after Becca. He’s not pushy or a possessive Neanderthal. Just a man that’s wizened up through the years and knows what he’s been missing.
On our first date. I told you I spent half the night fantasizing about you. You didn’t ask me what I was doing the other half.”
“Do I really want to know?”
“I was falling in love with you.”
This was such a sweet and sexy second chance romance! It reminded me all over again why I love Chanel Cleeton books. I loved her Capital Confessions series and I can’t get enough of her Wild Aces. What can I say? The woman gives good alpha and I simply can’t wait for more. With Easy’s story next, I’m not sure there’s enough ‘wants’ in the world to describe the amount of need I have for that book. Because I seriously NEED it.
