I hope you had a wonderful holiday season, and transition into 2017. I am looking forward to exploring all of the wonderful books that are coming our way, many of which I am looking forward to, due to their promising premises. I can hardly wait to share them with you.
Let’s start this year by talking about Turbulent Desires by Melody Anne, a romance novel that centers around the world of Aviators. Now there is a subject I have no idea about, so I was very curious to see if I would find it as interesting as some of the other Montlake romances that had been released recently.
Well, I did. Melody Anne took her time to develop a lovely cast of three-dimensional characters, who were easy to connect with. Maverick (okay the name is a little cheesy, I must admit – Top Gun anyone?) is a caring alpha male, who knows what he needs to do to get his job done. But one thing he did not count on that is falling for a woman who can not stand to be touched be anyone, after going through hell and back. That is exactly were the beginning of the book takes you – in the middle of a late-night attack that almost kills here, but leaves two colleges who were more than just colleges to her, dead. Her struggles to overcome her experiences, and his struggles to not fall in love with this brave woman is what drives this story.
While Turbulent Desires is a part of a series, it can be read as a stand-alone book. I have not read the first part of the series but will remedy that shortly, because I fell in love with all of the characters, and family members, and want to know more about them.
I have become a fan of Melody Anne, and am looking forward to exploring all of the other books she has written. So you can be assured that you will find her name appearing on my blog more often from now on.

She needs someone to reach her and to remind her of the exhilaration and unbelievable passion of being touched. He’ll help her heal, and then he’ll walk away. He has to walk away.
