Eye of the storm
Eye of the Storm by Beth Bolden

Commercial pilot Captain Grant Montgomery III lives for the rules; flight attendant Tess O'Brien loves to break them. The storm brewing between them might be even wilder than the record-breaking blizzard outside.

My Review:

This is the story that starts off the collection and it was great. You get to spend the time reading it to see how things end up. Then when you think nothing will come of it, a nice surprise waits for you, but you gotta read it yourself to figure out what that surprise is :)

I liked reading it and seeing Tess have her nervous ticks. I also liked seeing that Grant may not be the guy everyone thinks he is. It was a nice enjoyable read that put a smile on my face when it was over. The author does a great job of giving you a great story in a short amount of pages but nothing feels left out when it is over!

Fly Me to the Moon
Fly Me To The Moon by Bev Elle

Ticketing agent Jessamy Taylor has been in a dating slump that was exacerbated when she moved her sickly mother in. Truth is, she's never gotten over the quirky Dr. Griffin Sanderson whose OCD drives her crazy, despite his excellent bedside manner.


My Review:

This was a cute story of two people that have extreme OCD. It's up to them to see if they can overcome it or let it hold them down. I really liked both Jessamy and Griffin as characters. They both have so much to overcome but they find ways to at least try.

I felt sorry for Griffin for a big part of the story just because he is trying to hard yet he tends to still get the bad side of the stick. He is a character that I really enjoyed following through Jessamy. Once it all came out at the end, it put a smile on my face and made me want to follow them some more.

Unscheduled Departure
Unscheduled Departure by T.M. Franklin

Rowan Elliott is devastated when her boyfriend, Finn, tells her he’s moving across the country to take over the family business, and thrilled when he changes his mind at the last minute and gets off the plane. But then things get . . . weird. And Ro’s left wondering if her boyfriend’s really who she thinks he is.

My Review:

This was the longest of the books that was in the set. But even with it being longer, it was still well done and easy to read. Rowan lets her boyfriend go to take over a family business but the whole time she wants him to stay. You can feel the emotions that she feels and want to go hug her for sure. When things don't go as plan, everything seems to be weird.

I liked that this was a bit paranormal too. Just not in the way you would think it to be, but was still very intriguing. You sit there wondering how things could be different but not at the same time. The author at the end takes you for a spin again. After you think you have it all figured out, you get sent back out to figure it out all over again!!

A Midsummer Flight's Dream
A Midsummer Flight's Dream by Kira A. Gold

Twenty years ago, he promised to catch her if she fell. Contains young lust, old books, and wild strawberries.

My Review:

This is one of the stories that will suck you in. You wonder how things are going to end up with all the complications that are within the pages. At the end you are still left with an ending that could go either way. You get to decide where the characters end up.

I wish it would have been a little longer to give a little more clarity with how it ended, but was still a wonderful story that will makes you want to go to Sweden yourself.

Forced Landing
Forced Landing by Angel Lawson

Nadya discovers her tiny hometown airport is the portal to a world she never knew existed, one with an ancient history buried deep within her bloodline.

My Review:

I was wondering which one was the paranormal story and I was glad that I got to read it! This was the second book in the collection and while I had to get my head out of the first story, the author does a great job helping you with that. Her story sucks you right in and makes you curious about Liam.

While this was a short story, I could definitely see this one being continued on. I would love to know what ends up happening with Nadya and Liam. You get an ending that leaves you knowing somewhat how it ends, but is also left in a way that I feel you can interpret for yourself how it ends. I obviously chose the good ending, but it would definitely be nice if I found out this one was going to be continued!

The amount of paranormal isn't too much that you can't follow it no matter if you like paranormal or not. It is just enough to give you that edge of excitement and keeping you turning through the pages needing to know more.

The Friendly Skies
The Friendly Skies by Amanda Weaver

An unruly drunk, a misbehaving volcano and a re-routed flight lead to one steamy night for two strangers who meet on a plane.

My Review:

This was such a sweet story. I loved following Simon and Cassie. Cassie battles so much in her head due to bad experiences in her past, but she is soon finding out that not all guys are bad. Sometimes you just have to let the right one in.

I enjoyed following all of the flight as well as what happens later. This is quite steamy, but I really enjoyed reading it. It was the right amount of sexy without it coming across as too much. This is a story that I think will have anyone ending it with a big smile on their face.
