Published by Berkley Publishing Group Genres: Contemporary
Fly With Me is the first book in a brand new series by Chanel Cleeton and I was completely thrilled with how different it was from her Capital Confessions series. In this new world that Ms. Cleeton has created we meet a group of pilots in the Air Force that love what they do but when they fall in love they fall hard and I couldn’t wait to get to know each of them better.
Jordan owns a boutique in the Sunshine state but is currently in Las Vegas for her sister’s bachelorette party. She might be thirty and still single but this weekend she isn’t going to let that get her down. While out she meets Noah and is instantly attracted to him and the thing that stands out to her the most is how he carries himself. What she never expected was to embark on a one night stand that quickly turns in to an everlasting romance. Only one problem, they live in two different states. Will the distance keep them apart or can they find a common ground in making their relationship really work.
Noah is in Las Vegas for work and since he is a pilot he hasn’t had the time for many serious relationships. After spending time with Jordan in and out of bed he knows he wants to get to know her better but it’s not going to be easy. He can move from place to place or be gone for long periods of time. Noah is just hoping for once this relationship wont crash and burn. To make sure that doesn’t happen he is willing to put his heart on the line.
Once I started Fly With Me I didn’t want to stop reading. There were a few things that started to jump out at me from the beginning that made this story even more enjoyable. Fly With Me was done in dual povs, I found not only did it help me get to know the characters better but also showed the depth of what Jordan and Noah were feeling and going through even when they were separated. Another thing was the Air Force lingo and missions that really captured my interest. I know nothing about the Air Force but I really did like how Ms. Cleeton took her time in explaining in detail how things worked which made this read even more enjoyable.
At first Noah came off a little on the cocky side but as I kept plugging away at the pages I couldn’t help but fall for him. He was confident yet when it came to Jordan, I liked how she unhinged him and made him unsure of how to handle things with her. I felt Jordan was a strong female lead and really enjoyed her personality. While she has her own life and such I liked how strong she stayed for Noah. She was also sassy, funny and realistic. Sometimes she would allow doubts to take over her mind that showed her own insecurities and that made her more real and open. The secondary characters helped make this story complete with their funny banter and the closeness they shared. I can honestly say I can’t wait to read each of their stories in the future, especially Easy’s.
While Jordan and Noah were apart I did find it harder to connect with them at times. Long distance relationships are hard due to different schedules and of course the lack of seeing one another but I thought these two handed it well and every time they got together I couldn’t help but do a little happy dance. Would I have liked to see them get together a little more frequently? Absolutely, but Ms. Cleeton brought a realness to them and the more time they exchanged phone calls the more they learned about one another.
Fly With Me, was fun, sweet and wow the ending had me grabbing for the tissues. Overall, I can’t wait for more of this series just to see how everyone’s relationships will turn out in the end. The next book can’t come soon enough and I will be stalking Ms. Cleeton’s page on a regular basis for release dates.
