It’s the seventh of the month and I’ve already posted a review. You think I’m done?
You are wrong.
There’s one more novel that I’ll be reviewing, but first: a little bit about the book I’ve already shared my thoughts on, plus a link to the review.
Fly with Me (standalone)
Author: Hudson Lin
Themes & Genres: Contemporary Romantic Comedy, Adult
WARNING: This book contains a (tiny) scene of sexual harassment.
She set out to explore the world and found love along the way.
Vivian Ng is as experienced as flight attendants come. Taking charge and getting stuff done has always been her MO. When her father pushes her to give up her Asian routes in favor of flights to Europe, she’s nervous about the change, but her skills have never failed her before.
Flight attendant Marco Chang is charming and he knows it. Growing up as an immigrant with absentee parents, he learned how to win people over with a smile and a sexy accent. But being popular never meant his heart was available.
When Vivian and Marco find themselves working the same flight to Rome, Marco is immediately smitten. Vivian is smart, competent, kicks ass and takes names. Vivian’s not as impressed. Marco’s cute, sure, but he’s helpful to a fault and she doesn’t need some guy telling her how to do her job.
As they hop back and forth across the Atlantic, the romance of European cities works its magic. But if there’s any hope of their budding attraction taking off, she’ll need to let go and he’ll need to let her in.
Date of my review: Thursday, April 04 (I’m also posting an interview with Hudson on April 11)
So, what’s the other book I’ll be talking about?
Jude – Lucky, Book 3*
*Note: Each book in the Lucky series follows a new couple and they can be read as standalone.
Author: Garrett Leigh
Themes & Genres: Contemporary LGBT Romance
WARNING: Mature Content
Isha has spent the last year watching his BFF get his happily-ever-after. He’s proud of Dom, but…it hurts to see him so free while Isha’s love life is still on lockdown. Only Isha’s ex-wife knows the secret that he’s kept caged for so long—that he’s queer too, and he’s lonely.
Jude’s too chained to his work to notice what he’s missing by being terminally single, but a new face in the village soon catches his attention. City boy Isha is gorgeous, and when he starts to haunt Jude’s reptile shop as well as the hook-up app on his phone, he’s a welcome distraction from Jude’s business problems.
For a control freak like Isha, letting Jude under his skin is an existential meltdown, but Jude’s not in the market to be anyone’s queer crisis, not when he’s facing troubles of his own. Unlocking their lives could push both men apart forever, but it might be a risk worth taking if sharing is the key to their happy future.
