From the New York Times bestselling authors of Stuck-Up Suit and Cocky Bastard, comes a sexy new standalone novel.

Money or love? Which would you choose? 

You probably just answered the question in your head thinking it's an easy decision.

For me, it's not. Did I mention it's a lot of money? A hell of a lot.

I needed to go far away to think it through.

As I embarked on an impulsive trip, I hit a detour when I met sexy Carter in the airport lounge. We struck up a heated conversation.

Then, he left.

I thought I'd never see him again.

But fate had other plans.

Surprise! He was the pilot of my flight.

The bigger surprise was the adventure that followed after the plane landed.

Carter was dangerous and always on the move.

Even though our connection was magnetic, I knew it was only temporary.

He would give me tickets, and I would follow him around the world to exotic places.

A bevy of flight attendant exes and rumors about Carter's reputation were never far behind.

I didn't know what to believe.

But I was addicted. Nothing else mattered anymore. And I was going to get hurt. Because a part of me wanted to be the one to finally ground the playboy pilot.

At the very least, he was taking me on a thrilling ride.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn't see coming.

4.5 Stars!!
Review by Lisa Kane

Kendall Sparks is trying to decide where she should fly to-of course making this decision while at the airport with no ticket to any destination may not have been a smart move. But a girl could do worse, because a gorgeous guy sits down next to her at the bar while she is nursing her drink. She hears the bartender call him Trip. He talks, she listens, he spills a drink all over her designer shirt. He helps her get out the stain. With club soda. On a blouse. Did I mention she is braless? He asks why she didn’t wear a bra. She lets him know that she is perky enough not to wear one.

"Christ, are you not wearing a bra?"
"Actually, I'm not."
He finally looked up. "Might I ask, why you're at an airport with no bra on?"
Clearing my throat, I said, "I wanted to be comfortable on the flight. Plus...I'm...perky. I don't really need to wear one in general."

 The banter goes back and forth and he throws out a few suggestions. He just happens to have an app listing all the upcoming flights. He lets her know his choice would be Rio. He tells her his name is Carter. He just might be obsessed with the Beatles.

"I have this theory. If you think about almost any given moment in life, there's a Beatles song that can describe it."

He has to run. She's a little disappointed but she's got her own problems to deal with, so Kendall has nothing to lose and buys a $3000 first class ticket to Rio. 

Disappointed that Carter is nowhere to be found on the flight (she really thought he would be and that’s why he was pushing her in the direction of Rio) imagine her surprise when she finds out he is the pilot. A pilot who breaks out in song and sings Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds.

"Did...the pilot sing Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds last night to the cabin?"
She chuckled. "Sure did. Sings it on every night flight. Not sure why."
"That's a little strange."
"That's Captain Clynes for you. A little crazy, but a whole lot gorgeous and fun."
"The other flight attendant alluded to him being fun."
"I'm sure there are a lot of flight attendants who would tell you how much fun he is."

When she gets into a cab outside the airport, guess who ends up sharing a cab with her? Carter takes charge and steers her to the place he often stays at while he’s in Rio (that is, when he isn’t hooking up with one of the flight attendance-then he stays at a hotel)

"You said you only stay here half of the time. The other times, you opt for the big hotel?
He hesitated. " I come here when I'm alone. I go to the hotel when I-"
Never mind." I held out my palm. "I get it."
The hotel was his fucking ground, probably with the stewardess of the week. I didn't want to hear anymore. 

This is the start of a great adventure for the two of them. But Kendall is at a crossroads trying to decide if she is going to take action and do what needs to be done to ensure her inheritance. Or will she choose love? Carter has a few secrets of his own that he is keeping. Having been burnt once, does he want to let himself care about more than flying and getting laid?

"I need to know what's going on with you, Kendall."
Shaking her head, she cried, "Well, I don't want to know what's going on with you. Because I can't handle it."

Playboy Pilot has lots of angst and heartbreak (consider who the authors are-did you expect anything else?) It’s funny and sexy and clever. There just may be an appearance from a character or two from a previous book of theirs. I love the way they did that with Stuck Up Suit and now with Playboy Pilot. 

"You early to check-in your dog or something?"
"Or something." 

I adored this story-I hope these two don’t have a falling out and stop collaborating together. (If they do, I volunteer to be an intermediary counselor-hey whatever it would take for them to make up and play nice together again) Their stories are so seamless, it’s impossible to know who wrote which part and I gobble their stories up like that second piece of pie at Thanksgiving.

So come fly away with Playboy Pilot-it’s worth it for the Beatles music alone-I found myself thinking of their songs throughout the story. Carter needs to stop with his crazy Day Tripper act, he could use some Help since he was instantly smitten by Kendall (and he needs to give her All My Loving. I wanted to shake him and tell him You're Going to Lose That Girl. Kendall needs to decide what course her life will take ‘cause you Can’t Buy Me Love. These two need to Come Together, start a Revolution, stop being so isolated and playing that same old Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart's Club Band act, forget the mistakes of Yesterday, stop worrying about what would happen If I Fell, take a chance on love, Shout it out to the world and live every day together Eight Days a Week.

Okay, enough cheesiness from me for one review.

"How long can you stay?"
"As long as you need me."
"Fucking forever then?"



“Carter? What are you doing?”
I laughed under my breath and banged the back of my head against the wood. “Praying?”
“Do you always breathe like that when you’re praying?”
“It’s an intense prayer.”
“What are you really doing?”
“I think you might know what I’m really doing, Kendall.”
“Can I come in?”
Still fully erect, I tucked my cock back into my pants as best I could before opening the door.
Her eyes trailed down to my massive erection. “I’m sorry….to make you resort to that.”
“It’s okay. My hand and I haven’t spent time like this since I was a teenager. I think he missed me.”
“What were you thinking about?”
“Yeah…but what specifically?”
“It was this fantasy of fucking you on the dance floor back at the club.”
She looked down at me again. Her expression was serious when she asked, “You need some help?”
“I thought you said we weren’t going to go there.”
“I can’t have sex with you. But I want to touch you. I could take my clothes off, let you finish what you started. You know…help you.”
Looking up at the ceiling, I shook my head. “You have no fucking clue, do you?”
“What do you mean?”
“How crazy you make me. There’s no halfway with you. Jerking off with your naked body right in front of me…not being able to do what I really want to you…would be torture. I don’t have that kind of willpower, not with you, not anymore. Even when I kiss you, all I can think about is burying myself inside of you. But you naked in front of me? Too much, Kendall. When you strip down for me, I want it to be when you’re ready to let me have you. Otherwise, it’s better if I don’t know what I’m missing out on.”
Looking filled with remorse, she waved her hands. “Okay. I get it. I’m sorry…for interrupting.”
“Go back to bed. I’ll be right there.”
After Kendall left, I closed my eyes in regret. Was I crazy for turning her away like that?
Now that she knew what I was up to in here, I couldn’t relax. Still needing release like a motherfucker, I turned on the shower and got in. Ironically, I jerked myself to thoughts of her naked body against the bathroom door and imagined she was watching me.
Fuck my life.
