She was used to flying solo…
But that was before Kaleb came on board!
Temporarily grounded combat pilot Molly Markham didn’t come to Sugar Falls to get serious about a man she barely knows!
But when Kaleb Chatterson becomes her unexpected hero, she agrees to date the billionaire software developer to keep their secret from getting out.
Except the sexy brainiac—and her pretend boyfriend—is fast turning into the man of her dreams…
What a delightfully lovely story! It is filled with love for the family, love for life, passion for chosen career, and of course, passion and love in a romantic sense with a strong female lead and a hero who can match her spunk and be her partner, friend, lover, true equals in love and life. They just had to figure that one out first...
I was so afraid the last book I had read was going to put me in a long-lasting book-hangover yet this one dropped into my mailbox and it was just what I needed. Couldn't have been a better timing.
The story is like a burst of sunshine. It is filled with warmth and love and it is uplifting and cheerful and fun while touching gently some serious issues as well.
The banter throughout the story is hilarious. There are some moments that it is a bit hurtful to Kaleb, the Chatterson are a brutally honest bunch, but there is no question fo the love that is shining through.
I adored Kaleb Chatterson. He is a geek, super smart, kind, generous, honest, funny, billionaire, who relayed on the technology to make his life easier. If there would not have been mentions of his wealth, it wouldn't have come across from his behavior, and I loved that. He was like the hot neighbor guy, caring, protective, I-will-fix-it type, who only wanted the best for the people he cared about. Yes, his micromanagement was getting on everyone's nerves, but he had only good intentions.
I loved that the 'hero' military service member is a woman. Captain Molly Markham is a pilot, and she is good at what she does. Life has thrown a wrench into her career and long-term plans; the life as she has always known it is about to change. And she is not dealing well with that chance at all. She is an adrenaline junkie, she loves the speed, the dare, the competition. Now she feels her body is failing her, and to get a new kind of balance in her life, and find a meaning to her future and new plans are something she has figure out. She is a sweet, kind, and fun girl if a little cranky and confrontational at the moment, and in desperate need of her own space and peace of mind to figure out how to face the new challenges and learn to live with them.
The accidental relationship Molly and Kaleb fall into soon turns the initial spark of an attraction into an inferno of churning emotions. Molly's need to keep her new challenges from her family, especially from her sister, puts Kaleb and Molly together, and holding on to her secret turns into a game of hide-and-seek.
I smiled, laughed, sighed, and swooned, and completely fell for the lovely, alluring, adorable bunch of characters. Kaleb and Molly fit so well together, they are perfect for each other. The insecurities, the challenges, the strengths, the energy they have is well matched and they bring the best out of each other, balance the other, they see the person behind all the walls, money, and titles, and genuinely cares for each other.
The title is a part of a series but does not require the reader to be familiar with the previous books to enjoy this one. It does arouse the interest to read the rest of the series as well, though.
An engaging, delectable, sexy and cute at the same time, fun and delicious, well-written romance story
