In the heat of the Nevada desert, the most elite military pilots in the world are about to engage in some friendly competition. Only this year, someone is changing all the rules...
RAF pilot Dexter Stone has been through his fair share of sticky situations. After living through a crash in enemy territory where no one expected him to walk away, the Red Flag training exercises should be a piece of cake-assuming he can keep his mind on the mission and not on the smart mouth of his gorgeous American competition.
As one of the few women in a sky full of hotshot flyboys, Maj. Eleanor Daniels has worked day and night to earn a coveted spot at Red Flag. And she's not about to let some cocky British bad boy distract her from winning. But when the games take a deadly turn, he may be her only hope for survival.
Emmy Curtis' Aces Wild is a high-flying adventure brimming with scorching romance and thrilling action that I easily became lost in!
After puttering out half way through this authors debut series, Alpha Ops, I was a little skeptical going into Aces Wild. However, this author's writing has very obviously evolved within the last year or two, because I could hardly tell that it was the same writer! Aces Wild was fast moving, intriguing, and the romance was red hot. The protagonists of the book were interesting, quick witted, and fun. Dexter and Eleanor had wonderful backstories that helped shape their characters and gave them that extra dimension. They also had great chemistry and the secondary characters, which will be spotlighted in following books, were compelling. I look forward to reading more about them.
I still have some big questions about the bad guys, as there were substantial loose ends left open by the end of the book. Hopefully that aspect is still an evolving story in this series and answers will come with more installments! Over all, Aces Wild was a titillating military romance that I enjoyed! I definitely recommend this title to romantic suspense and military romance fans.
