“Her stories stand out from the masses of cookie cutter romances and can often touch on subjects that others might shy away from. FLYING was just that.” ~Under the Covers
There are few authors that can make me like pretty much anything they set their minds to writing. Megan Hart is one of those few. Her stories stand out from the masses of cookie cutter romances and can often touch on subjects that others might shy away from.
FLYING was just that but at the same time, the topic of the book was unusual in a way only Ms. Hart can do. Stella becomes a master of seduction every other weekend. She flies standby somewhere we can she can come back the next day or in two days. She wears a disguise, becomes someone else and picks her guy. After that one night stand she comes back to her life. Her son. Her job. She’s divorced and hasn’t dated since. She just has her flying to set her free.
This concept was incredibly simple but Ms. Hart’s beautiful writing made it captivating and enthralling. And Stella’s journey and emotions took me on that ride along with her. Right or wrong. Because this book is about her journey, not the sexual prowess of her sexcapades, but how she deals with her current life, how she escapes. And how she can also find too. Along the way she meets Matthew. I can’t say I was convinced of their connection at first, and he has his own issues he’s not ready to face right away. Just two pretty damaged individuals that in the end may be able to help each other.
My only complaint? I felt the ending was cut short. However, FLYING was a deep and emotional, enjoyable read. It felt a bit less raw than others I’ve read by this author. The best I have to explain it is that it felt more like watching a good movie than being in the movie. Oftentimes, with Ms. Hart’s books, I become very involved with the characters. With this one, I was the spectator. I think that’s the only thing I missed.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
