detail of the Heart of the Night (Secret Agent language It s just a symptom of a general sloppiness that I ve never seen in other Shalvis books Maybe it is the editor s fault but either way it

pretty horrible heroines and I have high standards for the girls that try to take on the bad guys all by themselves If they re TSTL I put the book down I don t want to suspend my disbelief so a

above meh There seems to be a bit of story and a ot "Of Groping Rubbing And "groping rubbing and running for you ives without a damn answer to why Really who would run from bullets without and explanation for this chick Not one of her better books Now do I DNF it and try another of do I continue with meh I DNF my time is worth than this No meh sandwiches Jill Shalvis is a fabulous writer Time and again she has seamlessly blended humor and heat with some sort of suspense all while ensuring that an emotional connection between each immensely charismatic hero and intelligent strong heroine not only exists but evolves and deepens in a believable emotional manner That has held true for every single Jill Shalvis book that I have Read And I Ve and I ve than a few except unfortunately for this oneThat is not to say that the humor isn t there there are some very funny moments and A Measure Of Love (Kincaid Trilogy lines And the heat is definitely present and accounted for as the chemistry between Noah and Bailey is intense and translates into truly steamy encounters And the book has suspense there is definitely a thriller aspect to the story that involves the hero and heroine repeatedly being chased by armed thugsIt all sounds good So what s the problem you may ask Well I would say the issue is that disbelief can only be suspended so much and so far before one is in danger of rolling her eyes so often that she runs the risk of permanently injuring herself or at the veryeast getting one heck of a headache First it s true that Noah has been hot for Bailey for some time yet once she hijacks him and his plane yes hijacks that attraction is evidently than enough of a valid reason for him to risk his Starting Over on Blackberry Lane (Life in Icicle Falls life

Jill Shalvis ☆ 8 review,
Rtunately she enters too stupid to ive territory on a routine basis She just seems utterly incapable of taking care of herself and always needs Noah who is a master of all trades apparently and on MacGuyver Claiming His Desert Princess (Hot Arabian Nights likeevels to rescue her This is a woman who wears high heels when she knows that she will Secret Baby, Surprise Parents likely have to run and climb on snowy icy terrain This is a woman who begins the story already having the information she needs to figure out where to find what she sooking for in order to get out of her situation yet even though she has exceedingly Mystify (Mystyx, long stretches of time in which she can think things over she just can t figure it out until Noah prompts her to do so Near the end of the book ReallyPlus and this is something that another review or two has mentioned Noah begins the book heading out for some RR so that he can cavort with as many ski bunnies as possible There isn t anything wrong with that per se except that the reader is reminded of that over and over And over again Throughout the book by not only Noah but also his friends and coworkers It gets old very very uicklyThen there is the issue of repetitiveness Noah and Bailey have essentially the same conversation about a dozen times and the formula for said conversation goes aittle something The New Baby like this Noah reasonably asks Bailey to tell him the truth about what s going on since he s you know risking hisife to help her Bailey hems and haws a bit and mentions not wanting to put him in danger though after say page 2 it s a bit too Wild Streak late for that before she eventually gives him a tiny piece of information Noah is hurt understandably because even after all that he s done to help her she still won t trust him but he decides to keep helping her anyway This conversation happens way too many times and by the time Bailey finally finally tells him the entire story it is than blatantly obvious that if had she done so from the very beginning they could ve avoided a great deal ofife threatening trouble It is absurd and it s repetitive and all too uickly it becomes boringAnd then there is by far the biggest problem Noah and Bailey are as previously mentioned chased on numerous occasions by armed thugs who demonstrate a willingness to use their firearms in Noah and Bailey s general direction Yet in the midst of chases our hero and heroine take the time to not only think endlessly about how attracted they are to one another and admire each other s bodies but also to contemplate all of the sex they d P.I. Daddys Personal Mission (The Coltons of Montana, like to have with one another It gets worse They also take the time to kiss and grope each other aittle actually a Say Youll Stay And Marry Me lot right smack in the middle of chase scenes Plus there s one instance in which Bailey refuses to keep running regardless of the armed gunmen who are right on their heels unless Noah stops right then and there and tells her about his past Really The first time the inappropriately timed sex related activity happened I chalked it up to adrenaline and chemistry doing odd things to Noah s and Bailey s brains By the fourth or fifth time they stop mid chase so that Noah canet s say make Bailey happy I couldn t believe what I was reading I understand that this is not fine classic Rafaellos Mistress literature but this was utterly absurd I actually couldn t believe that Ms Shalvis wrote this because this was not at all in keeping with her talentSo the book has some pretty major problems in my view It does have its good points Noah is a fantastic hero though why he puts up with Bailey is mostly beyond me And if one is able toook past Bailey s flaws she and Noah make a great couple who as I said are pretty steamy and the book does not ack sex scenes though again some occur at incredibly inappropriate times All in *all though while there were some enjoyable parts the aforementioned problems proved to be far too significant for me to get * though while there were some enjoyable parts the aforementioned problems proved to be far too significant for me to get Fans of the author may still ike this book for its enjoyable moments that are pretty much classic Shalvis Other than that I think that readers may be better served by choosing Rascal literally any other Jill Shalvis book What a pitiful excuse for a romantic suspense novel Moreike plotless sex disguised as a storyThe suspense was blah the hero was a cardboard one dimensional dummy the heroine was a TSTL air headed who changes outfits in the middle of a flight for Another Day of Life life bitch with trust issues he was in deep shit right alongside her and she still refused to tell him everything because she feared she would put him in dangerhello bullets flyingAnd there was too much rather meaningless sex 35 starsJill Shalvis is a wordsmith She is extremely talented I just didn t fit with this story I couldn t relate or enjoy the constantust while in What Would You Like? life threatening situations It was aittle too much for me While I d be shting my pants these two were oblivious to the people trying "TO KILL THEM A ONE TRACK MIND FOR BUMPING "kill them a one track mind for bumping Still fabulously written I just couldn t connect with these two as much as I would ve Narcissus in Chains (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, liked.

Jill Shalvis is currently one of my comfort authors and I usually The Longevity Diet love her recent books This one though was neither comforting nor good and I definitely did notike it I wonder if it is due to the book being released in 2007 or because it s released by Brava I remember Brava having sex contents Anyway I m not going to say much because other negative reviews have said it better The only reason I didn t DNF was because I was behind my Goodreads challenge so I didn t want to I did a Grassroots Innovation lot of skimming thoughBottomine the heroine was weak and too stupid to be even alive the hero was often thinking with his dck because he have gone 6 months without sex boo hoo and of course they needed to have sex ike bunnies during a ife and death situation Bleh What a sad excuse of suspense in a romance book no not going to call this a romantic suspense it was just ridiculous Not going to even bother with the next books in this series Lucky that I bought only this one and not all three during the Kobo 50% event First time reading this author and I wasn t impressed The characters are pleasantly forgettable and the premise of the story reuires some suspension of disbelief It is supposed to be a hot read but considering that they are on the run the Architecture and Utopia lusting for each other just seemed contrived and impractical I mean they are running for theirives and yet they have time to stop and make out when the bad guys are practically breathing hard on their necksI owned the second book so I Perfect Cities ll probably read it but no rush Book

way to fly and maybe it s the altitude playing tricks but this is one trip she never wants to endI originally order the three books in Jill Shalvis s Sky Air Series primarily because I was once a flight attendant and never really finding any great romance books with characters and stories set in the world of flying decided these ooked pretty interesting I have had them in my TBR shelf for a while and decided to give them a trySmart Sexy is the first book in the series and the only thing about the travel world is that 3 guys own a private airline for the rich only thing about the travel world is that 3 guys own a private airline for the rich famous Though a great premise I soon realized that this airline was nothing ike I had in my head ooh small planeswhere are the super jets and super flight crew Well at Seven More Languages in Seven Weeks least there are the three ownerspilots who are gorgeous sexy and as the typecast goes about pilots they go through women in a blink of an eye and oh yesso commitment phobic and another but this book was first published in 2007 so a few things have changed in the aviation world since thenNoah Bailey areikeable characters and they kind of grow on you as one gets to know about them Noah is the typical alpha male off to a weekend of rr and do some ski bunnies very sexist with some inner turmoil and issues to resolve "after being off the radar for six months Bailey is uite sweet reminded me a bit of BarbieI mean "being off the radar for six months Bailey is uite sweet reminded me a bit of BarbieI mean many times did she apply gloss to her Scenes from a Revolution lips whilst being chased by gun totting gangsters And she s wearing high heels when she hijacks Noah s plane with a Bic pen which he thinks is a gun What a hootThey have great chemistry and some really hot scenes together but after a while I began thinkingwowcan they really think about sex so many times as they try to find the treasure and evade the shooting goons that follow them everywhere Oh man if Noah told me one time about Bailey s sexy glistening hot spot I was going to hit his headI found myself thinking how anyone was able to do what they did fly in check the resort escape being shot at get back on the plane fly to next placedo same thingsure it s pretty easy to get the picture So I guess I thought most of the plot a bit unbelievableI am interested in the other characters of Sky Air Maddie is just my kind of girlretro and a smart body and mouth Can t wait for the other two alpha male partners in the company to tell me their storyand naturally MaddieNow having got that off my chestet me say that I did enjoy reading Noah Bailey s st. Jill Shalvis mixes delectably steamy romance and pulse pounding adventure courtesy of Noah Shayne and Brody three gorgeous pilots whose private airline caters to the rich and fabulous Noah is a bad boy rebel who's always gone his own way but when the stowaway on board turns out to be his secret crush he'll make it his mission to keep the passenger satisfied Flying Solo Is Way OverratedNoah Fisher has worked for months to make Sky High the most prestigious charter airline in Cali.
