A year after losing her husband, Joker, the squadron commander of the Wild Aces, Dani Peterson gets an offer from his best friend, Alex “Easy” Rogers, to help fix up her house. Dani accepts, and their friendship grows—along with an undeniable attraction.
Racked by guilt for loving his best friend’s widow, Easy’s caught between what he wants and can’t have. Until one night everything changes, and the woman who’s always held his heart ends up in his arms. Yet as Easy leaves for his next deployment, he and Dani are torn between their feelings and their loyalty to Joker’s memory.
But when Dani discovers something that sends them both into a spin, the conflicted lovers must overcome the past to navigate a future together…
On Broken Wings is leaps and bounds by far the best book of this series. Simply amazing. It’s emotional, beautifully written and has brilliantly flawed characters with an intense and obvious chemistry. Ms. Cleeton, you truly outdid yourself here. The love story that was years in the making for our hero, Easy, is both heart-warming and heart-wrenching. The vulnerability of our heroine, Dani, creates a wonderful anticipation as we watch her evolve from the grieving widow into a confident and even stronger woman as she opens her broken heart yet again for a man that truly does love her.
I could not put this book down. I started it and within a few hours, it was over. It was just that damn good.
Rating: 5 Stars
I read and reviewed a paperback copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions reached are my own.
