This Just In: Hell’s Officially Breaking Loose
It’s bad enough that gutsy pilot Mel Anderson has to clean up after her lovable but completely disorganized best friend and business partner, Dimi, while her certifiable employees make more work than they do. Now, the one man she hoped she’d never see—the man who owns the deed to her airport, thank you—is back and looking for trouble. Scratch that, he is trouble. Amazing, holy cow, more please trouble…
Bo Black wants his family’s airport back, and he’s determined to get it. This laid-back Aussie is nobody’s fool. Thing is, neither is Mel. She’s intense. Uptight. Sexy. And very, very tempting. Suddenly, Bo’s thinking less about revenge and more about kissing and touching and falling into a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-underpants kind of forever love…
Now, somebody’s going for broke; somebody’s going crazy; somebody’s going to try everything; and somebody’s going to play a very risky surprise…
She’s a pilot who dreams of nothing but flying. He’s a pilot who is determined to make that dream come true – once he takes control of her airport. Bo Black has the deed to the North Beach Airstrip, but Melanie Anderson won’t go down without a fight… or a kiss. Of course, those are the Aussie Rules.
Ms. Shalvis writes sexy, intelligent stories that tug at your heart one minute and then make you cry the next. Her characters are funny and the type of people you want to know in real life.
Bo Black is tall, dark, handsome and oh, so Aussie. He’s in control, unless it comes to Melanie. She’s his weak link and not because she’s anything other than a fabulous independent woman. I liked that Melanie did take on all the responsibilities, but I also liked that she wasn’t the only person who could fix things in the clutch. It made her more relatable. We all need to be in control, but we can have a soft side too. I liked the side stories as much as the main stories. You wanted them all to get together and live happily ever after!
If you love aviation romance, or even if you just love a great love story, then grab a copy of Aussie Rules. You won’t regret it. I give this novel 5 books!
