An amazing job, check

An adorable apartment, check

A super supportive best friend, check

There’s only one thing missing from Vivienne Ramsey’s perfect life…

And after ten years of waiting the time is finally right for her to seduce her dream man. Tonight she’s going to wear Danny out in bed until he dies a happy man. But before she can begin her carefully crafted strategy of seduction he’s headed for the door. And for once in her over-organized life Vivienne doesn’t have a back-up plan.

If he had only read the memo about his part in her happily-ever-after.

NA ReviewMy ThoughtsI love Karen Gordon’s books. Her writing is always solid, her characters are always so unique and interesting and as a character driven reader, I find everything I have read from her to be super engaging. Fearless Flying and the Vivienne Series is no different. I really enjoyed this book. Fearless Flying is the first book in a seven book series (and each book is coming out one month after the previous book- how is that for instant gratification!?). The series centers around the main character Vivienne. I adored Vivienne. I could see so many aspects of my personality in her, but I think that is part of her magic. I think tons of people will be able to see themselves in this introverted perfectionist that decides to switch things up in her life and take charge. Even if at first glance, that doesn’t sound like you, you will be surprised at how very relate-able Vivienne is.

What I loved about Vivienne and Danny is that he is not some random guy that falls into her path on this new journey of hers. He is someone that has always been a good guy in her life, and that is always so much fun for me to read about. I love seeing the great friend become something more. It was really interesting watching Vivienne clash with what her personality wants her to do and what Danny needs. Watching Vivienne struggle with maintaining her independence and giving up some control here and there was really interesting to watch.

I read this book in one shot because I couldn’t stop. There are no good stopping points in Fearless Flying! I kept finding myself having to read just one more page, then just one more chapter, and you know how that goes. I had to eat my dinner at 9 at night because I didn’t realize it had gotten so late! I read through dinner, which is something crazy if you know me. I don’t skip meals. haha

Fearless Flying is a great read. It has all the things I love in a good romance. It has excellent characters that you can’t help but like and root for, it has great writing and it has a winning combination of humor, sexiness and realistic tension and drama. I can’t wait to see what is going to happen with Vivienne next.

About Karen Gordon

Supporter of strong, sexy women in fiction and in life.

I was born and raised in the suburban paradise of St. Charles, Missouri, just outside of St. Louis. Growing up there started my love of extraordinary stories about ordinary places and people, finding excitement in the mundane. I currently write romance and chick lit but you never know what I might do next. In all my stories the women are smart, sexual and strong and you’ll never find a woman-hating “bad boy” hero.

I currently live with the loves of my life, three very kewl, geeky men and one perfect puppy, just outside of Memphis, TN

    Sounds like a good quick read! Perfect to read in one sitting. I haven’t read this author before, so I think a book 100 pages long is excellent choice to try Gordon’s work. 🙂
