Sarah’s Musings…


Solo and Panther (their pilot names) just own me. I have completely fallen in love with their love.

Ella and Brooke just have this way of writing about couples I can’t resist. Their love seems destined, consuming, and I love that there is always a romantic notion of “not until this one” to their story line. I never wanted more until THIS ONE. I never knew my life could be better until THIS ONE. You get the picture. The romance sweeps me away, and these two are not different. I really felt like book two allowed us to see them connect more and share more then just the physical with each other.

Even though we see them start to share, I wish those conversations would have been a bit more in depth or plentiful. There is so much more to their characters, and feel like we haven’t seen a ton of that. Although, book three is looking like we are going to get more, so I’m hopeful. There also was a bit lacking in regards to the ending of book one. It was just like boom, he is healed, all better. I expected that to play a bigger role in the story or for the recovery to be longer. That being said, I still gave it 4.5 because these two make me FEEL so much.

Panther and Solo have been one of my favorite couples from this writing duo, and with the ending of book two, I’m dying to see how this is going to end. I fee a weird mix of pride and elation for what these two are going to do. I’m so here for it.

ARC review

Need for Speed AMAZON

Need for Speed is the continuation of Solo and Panther’s story and should only be read after book one, Danger Zone.

They train to serve their country.

They strive to be the best.

But only a select few can be…

The Elite

* * *



Reckless, arrogant, and bold, Solo is as known in the U.S. Navy for his bad-boy reputation as he is for his skills as a fighter pilot. It’s a surprise to his peers, then, when he’s chosen to train and compete at the most prestigious naval aviation academy in the world.


  1. Kick everyone’s ass.
  2. Do whatever it takes to win.
  3. Do your best to distract the competition.
  4. Especially when that competition is a gorgeous blue-eyed perfectionist who makes your blood run hot.

* * *



Disciplined, smart, and confident, Panther can’t afford not to play by the rules. As the son of a top Navy commander, all eyes are on him, and being anything less than number one is unacceptable.


  1. Keep it safe in the air.
  2. Prove you’re more than Commander Hughes’s son.
  3. No distractions. Stay focused.
  4. Don’t fall for your competition—especially not the rebellious heartbreaker with lips made for sinning.

In the heat of the hot California sun, tempers flare and desires ignite as Solo and Panther try to resist their attraction while fighting to be number one.

With passion this intense, the question remains:

Who’s gonna come out on top?
