REVIEW – PLAYBOY PILOT by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland



From the New York Times bestselling authors of Stuck-Up Suit andCocky Bastard, comes a sexy new standalone novel.

Money or love? Which would you choose?

You probably just answered the question in your head thinking it’s an easy decision.

For me, it’s not. Did I mention it’s a lot of money? A hell of a lot.

I needed to go far away to think it through.

As I embarked on an impulsive trip, I hit a detour when I met sexy Carter in the airport lounge. We struck up a heated conversation.

Then, he left.

I thought I’d never see him again.

But fate had other plans.

Surprise! He was the pilot of my flight.

The bigger surprise was the adventure that followed after the plane landed.

Carter was dangerous and always on the move.

Even though our connection was magnetic, I knew it was only temporary.

He would give me tickets, and I would follow him around the world to exotic places.

A bevy of flight attendant exes and rumors about Carter’s reputation were never far behind.

I didn’t know what to believe.

But I was addicted. Nothing else mattered anymore. And I was going to get hurt. Because a part of me wanted to be the one to finally ground the playboy pilot.

At the very least, he was taking me on a thrilling ride.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

My whole life had been a series of following down paths that someone had set me on. It was time I picked my own path, no matter which it was.


Get ready to be taken on a romantic journey to some of the most exotic locations around the world. Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland have yet again created a mesmerizing story that captivated this reader and also left me a bit sleep-deprived. Ward and Keeland are the PERFECT writing collaboration. It is impossible for these two to write anything that is less than a five star read for me!! Ladies, you are going to fall head over heels in love with Captain Carter Clynes!!!



Kendall Sparks is a young woman at a crossroads in her life. Sitting in an airport lounge, Kendall is trying to pick a destination to escape to in order to avoid making a life altering decision that is being forced upon her by her family. She runs into one seriously gorgeous and cocky man and the two engage in some flirtatious and hilarious banter. Carter comes off as quite the ladies man and Kendall’s defenses are up but after their encounter she finds herself buying a ticket to Rio, which is where Carter suggests she go to since that was his destination. Later she’ll find out that Carter is the pilot of that flight and soon these two will embark on a whirlwind adventure filled with a lot of laughs, soul searching, some tears, and some delectable steam!!!



As the two spend more time together they get to know the real person behind the façade that they’ve put up for almost everyone else. There’s more to Carter than just being the ultimate player and Kendall isn’t the spoiled socialite that everyone presumes her to be.



As the layers are peeled away, I dare you not to fall head over heels in love with Carter. It was simply IMPOSSIBLE for me not to go all swoony for him. I loved that the authors didn’t make him out to be the stereotypical Ladies’ Man.  My heart ached for him once the angst got underway and I even stayed up well beyond my bedtime to get to the very last page!!



PLAYBOY PILOT had an enjoyable plot, plenty of steam, a top of the charts book boyfriend, and enough angst to satisfy all of my requirements to categorize this as a truly STELLAR read!!


PLAYBOY PILOT is releasing on September 19th!! Make sure you one-click!!

*****Mel’s Review*****

5 “Come Fly With Me” Stars!
(ARC provided by authors)
(BR with Patty & Dee)

-“Your wings already existed; now you must learn to fly.”




Kendall Sparks is a 24 yr. old woman from Dallas, Texas who grew up wealthy living on a ranch. She has some important decisions to make & needs time to think. She decides she needs an escape from her real life for a few days & heads off for an impulsive trip. The issue is she doesn’t have a clue yet where she wants to go.

Now she’s in the Miami airport lounge trying to decide where to go when a gorgeous man is listening in on her dilemma. They share a flirty conversation & just connect right away. He’s playful, confident, & absolutely hot as hell. Kendall is wishing she had more time with him. When she takes his suggestion on which flight to take, she gets her wish. The pilot of her plane is Captain Carter Clynes, the guy she met in the bar.




When Kendall arrives at her destination, her sexy pilot has a layover for a couple days. They end up spending time together & getting to know each other better. Soon Kendall becomes rather attached to him & isn’t ready to part ways with this man who excites her & makes her feel so much. Suddenly she’s jet-setting around the world to exotic places, & it’s unpredictable & she feels carefree. Her troubles seem lighter, & she just wants more time with Carter.


-I couldn’t quite figure out why making her happy was so important to me, considering I barely knew her. But there was a gnawing voice inside of me that seemed to whisper, “Pay attention. This girl is important.”

-“There is no way I was ready to let you go. I don’t know what this is, but it’s the best thing I have in my life right now, and I don’t want to lose it.”

-Nothing has been the same since the day we met.

-Stay with me.

-“Stay in the moment with me, Kendall.”




The longer they are on this adventure, the more Carter wants Kendall to be his. He begins to see a future with her. This feels different, & they both want more time together, but Kendall has a choice to make. Will it be money or love? This thrilling, magical ride eventually has to end as real life is waiting. Can they find a way to be together?

As usual, these two authors together are golden! I adored this book so much! Carter was such a beautiful, loving man with a huge heart. This couple was completely addicted to one another, & crazy for each other. If you love a fun, flirty read you can’t put down, this book is for you!


-For the first time in my life, something has mattered enough for me to take a chance.

-“This is crazy, right? Falling in love so fast? But I’m convinced that’s how it happens when it’s the real thing. You just know when it feels right.”

-Nothing has been the same since the day we met.

-“I’m crazy about you, Carter. There is nowhere else I’d rather be than standing next to you, wherever that might take me.”


*****Dee’s Review*****


(ARC kindly provided by authors in exchange for an honest review)
(BR with my besties Patty and Mel <3)
I’m on cloud nine right now after reading this wonderful romance. Authors Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland are like peanut butter and chocolate, or like silk and lace; they just compliment each other’s writing styles, and together they created something so unique and delightful that leaves you wishing that the story never ends. I could read Playboy Pilot a hundred times and never get bored, and still love it every time, it’s that good.
“Fly with me, beautiful.”



Kendall Sparks is at an airport bar searching on a map for a far and exotic destination to escape from her complicated life. A life that is so messed up that she doesn’t even know how to begin to deal with it. A handsome stranger approaches her, and with his charming smile and good looks he will rope her into accepting a crazy challenge, to get on a plane to Brazil. Even though Kendall doesn’t know anybody there, and she doesn’t speak Portuguese, she has the crazy hope that he too will be there. Little does she know, he is the pilot that will fly her to paradise.

Captain Carter Clynes is a playboy. He finds a woman in every port. He’s upfront with them of course and has a very sexy and irresistible approach about sex without strings. There’s something different about the girl he met at the airport bar, her beauty is wild, and her present seems as complicated as his past. From the moment Carter met Kendall he had a feeling about her, he wants to help and protect her and make her smile.

Together Carter and Kendall go on a wonderful journey around the world, where sexual tension, alcohol, thrills and even jail are on the menu, and they will have a taste of it all.




At first, both Carter and Kendall just want to enjoy the present and forget the troubles that haunt them, but the more they travel and spend time together, they discover another side of themselves when they are with one another, and by the time the journey is about to end, saying goodbye will feel both inevitable and impossible.

Carter will inspire Kendall to let go of all the things that scare her and are holding her back. Their adventure will teach her that there’s a world of possibilities at her fingertips, she just needs to let go of her insecurities and reach out for them. Carter is discovering too, that inside that playboy facade there’s still a man who just wants to be able to love and trust again.

These two characters were flawed and yet so perfect together. Such a fun and colorful romance that had so many different layers and flavors to it. Every chapter was an adventure and by the time I was finished reading, I was eager to jump back on that plane again. These are characters you will miss after you are done reading.




These authors are amazing on their own but together they simply bring stories to another level. They have found the rhythm for the perfect song, the song that you’ll always sing and dance to when feeling happy, the song you always keep on replay, the song that makes your heart smile. I will forever dance to the lyrics of Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland.
