But only a select few can be…
The Elite

* * *


Reckless, arrogant, and bold, Solo is as known in the U.S. Navy for his bad-boy reputation as he is for his skills as a fighter pilot. It’s a surprise to his peers, then, when he’s chosen to train and compete at the most prestigious naval aviation academy in the world.

1. Kick everyone’s ass.
2. Do whatever it takes to win.
3. Do your best to distract the competition.
4. Especially when that competition is a gorgeous blue-eyed perfectionist who makes your blood run hot.

* * *


Disciplined, smart, and confident, Panther can’t afford not to play by the rules. As the son of a top Navy commander, all eyes are on him, and being anything less than number one is unacceptable.

1. Keep it safe in the air.
2. Prove you’re more than Commander Hughes’s son.
3. No distractions. Stay focused.
4. Don’t fall for your competition—especially not the rebellious heartbreaker with lips made for sinning.

In the heat of the hot California sun, tempers flare and desires ignite as Solo and Panther try to resist their attraction while fighting to be number one.
With passion this intense, the question remains:
Who’s gonna come out on top?

I have been a fan of Solo and Panther since I started the first book and fell in love with their flirtiness. What I didn’t love about the first book was that huge cliffy I was left with. Thankfully though, the wait wasn’t too long and this one picked up right where the first book left us.

One thing is for sure though… Panther and Solo were as shocked by that cliffhanger as I was and they are both coming to terms that maybe there is more to life than just being a fighter pilot and being the best. Especially Panther is struggling with what’s most important to him. Feelings are blossoming and for the first time in his life…something…or rather someone…might be more important to him than flying (and trying to please his father…

They will need to figure out where they are going from here. It is clear as day for both of them that this not just “hooking-up” anymore. They are still competitors at one of the most prestigious aviation academies, and at the end of their training, they will probably be sent separate ways.

These boys will need to figure what is most important to them… being the best and fullfilling their lifelong dreams... or love..

I really loved seeing these two getting closer and closer and admitting to themselves, and each other, that their feelings had grown… They did not beat around the bush about it, and that was very refreshing. The “steamy” scenes were definitely delicious as I am used to by these authors, but I also loved that their “caring” for one another was starting to show as well…

I do however wish that this book would have been longer and I wasn’t left with yet another cliffhanger!!! I want to know what happens next !!

I myself am more of a fan of big books than a series of shorter ones, but I think that’s just a personal preference. Let’s just hope that the wait will be a fast one 😉
