From the author of Fly with Me and the Capital Confessions Novels comes the newest in the sexy Wild Aces Romance series.

Eric Jansen—call sign Thor—loves nothing more than pushing his F-16 to the limit. Returning home to South Carolina after a tragic loss, he hopes to fix the mistake he made long ago, when he chose the Air Force over his fiancée.

Becca Madison isn’t quick to welcome Thor back. She can’t forget how he shattered her heart. But Thor won’t give up once he’s set his sights on what he wants—and he wants Becca.

Thor shows Becca that he’s no longer the impulsive boy he used to be, and Becca finds herself irresistibly drawn to him. But will Thor be able to walk away from his dream of flying the F-16 for their love or does his heart belong to the sky?

Marie's Thoughts
Meh. I hate it when I have to review a book that I didn’t particularly love. Into the Blue is that book for me. It was entirely too Top Gun-esque and extremely cliché. At first, I enjoyed the pace of the story and the characters. The author had a lot to work with and began the book really well. But somewhere along the way, I lost interest and just couldn’t get in to the so-so chemistry that “Thor” and Becca had. In all fairness to the author, she can write some pretty awesome scenes. There are a few moments in Into the Blue that tried to bring me back, but ultimately, my lack of interest in the characters won out.

I enjoyed the first book of this series, and I’m hoping that this one is just a hiccup in what started out to be a very promising series.

I read and reviewed a paperback copy of the book gifted to the blog, from the publisher, in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions reached are my own.
