Life to My Flight by Lani Lynn Vale

There's a fine line between pissed and livid. Cleo crossed that line three days ago. God help you all.

You’re The Life

Cleo’s a Pararescueman for the U.S. Air Force. When a PJ is called, it’s because everyone else has said no. It’s one of the most dangerous jobs in the entire military, but also one of the most rewarding. It’s the reason he doesn’t form relationships. He’s seen his teammates divorce one by one, and he doesn’t want to do that to a woman. Especially one that he’s supposed to love. However, nowhere in his grand scheme did he plan for the force that was Rue.

To My

Rue’s life has been rough. What she needs is a break. One that’ll distract her from the fact that she’s drowning in responsibility. It comes in the form of a dark and dangerous biker who has a habit of putting his life on the line. He gives her the world, and she holds on with both hands, knowing that he only wants to be friends. Or does he?


Thinking she knows what’s best, she pushes him too far, causing his control to take flight, and Cleo to disappear before the dust settles. One night of passion turns into a year of heartbreak as Rue tries to find the ability to move on from Cleo. He was pretty clear with his wishes, and they didn’t include her. Cleo’s not through with Rue, though. Not even a little bit. She’ll be his. All it’ll take is a little bit of…persuasion.

I liked that Rue and Cleo were friends before anything else. When Cleo left her for a year, she wasn't just losing her friend, she was losing her forever. And when he shows back up in her life, she doesn't think she can let him back in. What if he hurts her again? What if he leaves?

I'm a huge sucker for second chance romances, especially when the hero realizes that he has a lot of work to do. Who doesn't love a great grovel? And Cleo definitely knew how to put in the work necessary to earn Rue's trust back.

I wasn't a huge fan of how Rue handled everything. She could be rude and disrespectful and it wasn't necessary. There were times when I wanted her to really hurt. Like when she would get jealous or possessive over Cleo, while pushing him away and treating him dirty, I wanted him to give her something to actually worry about. Alas, it wasn't in the cards LOL!

Seriously, these two were extremely hot together. I mean attacking each other like wild animals hot. And I loved it!!

My Note(s)

There was a horrible crime being inflicted on women in this story and although the perpetrator(s) got arrested, I still don't understand what the heck was going on. It seemed simple, but it wasn't really explained :(

There was also a part of this story that just broke my heart. There's a character whose book I was looking forward to and the author made it pretty clear that no book would be forthcoming by this event. I'm crushed. Well, not really... I've been told that this character does have a book and I can't wait to read it. Still, I was pretty pissed before I found that out. I couldn't believe that the author was really going to do me like that. It's great to know that I don't have to be disappointed and sad for long!
