High school senior Leah Jones loves nothing more than flying. While she’s in the air, it’s easy to forget life with her absentee mother at the low-rent end of a South Carolina beach town. When her flight instructor, Mr. Hall, hires her to fly for his banner advertising business, she sees it as her ticket out of the trailer park. And when he dies suddenly, she’s afraid her flying career is gone forever.
But Mr. Hall’s teenage sons, golden boy Alec and adrenaline junkie Grayson, are determined to keep the banner planes flying. Though Leah has crushed on Grayson for years, she’s leery of getting involved in what now seems like a doomed business--until Grayson betrays her by digging up her most damning secret. Holding it over her head, he forces her to fly for secret reasons of his own, reasons involving Alec. Now Leah finds herself drawn into a battle between brothers--and the consequences could be deadly.
My Jennifer Echols fangirl status is no secret, so me recommending this book is probably the least shocking thing ever. And the funny thing is, as I was reading this book I was thinking to myself, man, Jennifer Echols's characters are always lying to and manipulating the people they care about, and in any other book that would bug me so much, but she seriously pulls it off every single time. I love it so much. It's like that guilty pleasure soap opera that you just can't quit, even though you know it's a bit ridiculous.
Maybe it's because she brings the sexytimes, and she brings them good. This book is no exception...in fact I think this one pushes the envelope even more than her previous books have. If you blush easily, this is not one you want to read in public because DAMN is it hot.
Jennifer Echols...keep doing what you are doing. Keep giving me scandalous summertime reads full of lying and trickery and hot boys doing sexy, bad things. I will eat them all up.
