Not everyone’s good at one-night stands.
Skye Stephens has the worst day of her professional career, and all she wants to do is shed her power suit and get lost in the sheets with the hot guy she met at the bar. The problem is, this uptight ad exec doesn’t know how to do one-night stands. She has strict rules about dating and when to let a man in her bedroom.
Fighter pilot Ben “Bolt” Hardcastle is used to lovin’ and leavin’. But, after he meets Skye, one night doesn’t seem to be enough.
When these two crash-land into each other, a connection strong enough to make the loner pilot and the sexy businesswoman shed their rules about love and relationships begins to burn deeper than either of them ever expected.
Fly is a short and romantic read. I didn’t think it would turn out to be as romantic as it was. I thought it would be more sexy fun, which it was but it was also surprisingly sweet. I flew through Fly very quickly. It was an instant gratification, one sitting read that will perk up your afternoon or evening. Fly is the start of a new New Adult Contemporary series from T.A. Foster. At least I think it is. The book is a standalone but we met both Bolt and Skye’s Single friends so I smell a series brewing! I normally don’t read too many military books. I have no idea why, but I just haven’t yet. Fly made me wonder what the heck I was waiting for.
Skye is a strong lady. I really liked her. And I loved that Bolt saw that she was different. I loved seeing Skye at work. I wanted her to succeed so badly with the tourism and zoo campaign. There was a small incident with one of her co-workers towards the end of the book that got my blood boiling, and then it wasn’t brought up again. I really want to know what is going to happen with Mr. Jerk face. But he wasn’t the focus of the story. Skye and Bolt were.
Right from the start, it was easy to see that Bolt and Skye had chemistry. I liked that Skye didn’t enter the story until a couple of chapters in so we could see how Bolt normally acted and interacted with women. It showed us just how different Skye was. I think my very favorite Bolt was actually after he messed up for the first time with Skye. It was their first real fight and how he started acting afterwards, I thought was really telling. And he was so flippin’ cute! It was adorable. T.A. Foster knows her way around a romance. Some of those scenes were pretty awesome. I may have re-read a few scenes again because they were too good for one reading.
These characters were a bit older than the characters in her other stories. It felt a bit more mature. I loved hearing about Ben (Bolt) being a pilot.) I thought those were great additions to the story. The really sad part of Faith. I want her to get her second chance at love so bad. Plus I want to see Hollywood and Skye’s friend get their stories as well. Fly is told in dual narrative, and is well written and well executed. This is a solid New Adult Contemporary Romance. T.A. Foster never disappoints. I have read, and enjoyed, all of her books except for the Ivy Grace Series. How did I miss that one? I need to read it ASAP!
