A daring pilot finds himself in danger of losing his heart.
Coast Guard pilot Nick Armstrong savors the taste of danger. But after his helicopter crashes into the ocean during a mission, shattering his knee, he encounters a whole different type of thrill when he meets his new physical therapist. Maybe being grounded isn’t so bad after all.
Smart, sexy, and deeply guarded, Chloe Reynolds is the type of woman who drives Nick crazy for all the right reasons. But as she tries to help him heal, Chloe struggles to keep her heart—and secrets—safe.
For years, she has been told that Nick is responsible for her brother’s death, a “fact” that she slowly learns may not contain the entire truth.
But can Chloe’s growing feelings for Nick, and their undeniable chemistry, really overcome a years-long family feud? Or will the past ultimately destroy the future they both desperately want?
Safety Level: Safe
Cliffhanger: No on the romance. Yes on the general series arc.
I have to admit that as much as I was looking forward to this book, I was a bit wary as well because the second book was just meh, and I didn’t want to be disappointed in case this book was the same. However, I braved the unknown. Mostly because I had to since I got this book free from NetGalley in exchange for a simple thing as giving an honest review. So here it goes…
This book was a solid installment. Nick has always been described as the easygoing brother. He was the one who could crack jokes, make things light. He was the one Ace punched during Cooper’s wedding, and he still didn’t raise hell or try to retaliate. He is also the one closest to Ace, who is now the black sheep in the clan. While I am still hugely anticipating Ace’s book, I have to say that I really enjoyed this book. Nick’s character was consistent with the previous books. The two previous couples were featured. Although the women played very minor roles, the other two Armstrong men were still vital to the story. It was their support that helped Nick and their honesty that grounded him as well.
The heroine was difficult for me to connect with at first, but when her real story was revealed, I started liking her more and more. Unlike the second book where the ending wasn’t thrilling, this book was a bit of an improvement. I still really like the first book because of that plane crash and Cooper’s amazing piloting skills, but Nick’s story comes in a close second.
Like I keep saying, I can’t wait to find out what Ace’s romance aspect will be and just how he is going to reconnect with his brothers. I hope the fourth book comes out soon!
