I could drop a bomb without breaking a sweat, had been to war, nearly died more times than I could count, but she was the scariest thing I’d ever faced, my feelings for her sending me into a spin.


I’ve been seeing reviews of Chanel Cleeton books for some time on Goodreads and my curiosity was certainly piqued. I now understand why so many of her books have received such high ratings. Normally it takes me a few days to read a book of this length, but I literally devoured this book in less than a day!! I honestly was sucked in from the very first page. I’ve never read any romances involving Airforce fighter pilots, and now I am wondering why I waited so long!! I mean Top Gun is one of my favorite movies from the 80s!! All I kept doing was picturing “ICEMAN” while reading this book!! SIGH!! Well, let me tell you, ladies, there is an even hotter fighter pilot in town and he goes by call sign “EASY”!! He’s sure to melt the panties off of every woman who ends up reading this one! This is the third book in the WILD ACES series but can be read as a standalone. It’s a “friends-to-lovers” with a bit of the forbidden romance aspect to it.




Dani Peterson is a woman who has suffered so much loss in a short amount of time – losing her unborn child during a miscarriage and then her beloved husband during an accident while on a mission. It’s been a year and yet the pain is still very crushing. She hasn’t been able to get passed her grief. But she has found some solace from her friendship with her husband’s best friend, Alex “EASY” Rogers. The man is the hottest fighter pilot in “Wild Aces” and is a well-known ladies’ man but there is such a sweetness about him when it comes to Dani. What she doesn’t know is that EASY has been in love with her from the very first moment he saw her. But when he found out she was his best friend’s girl, he kept all of his feelings buried deep inside. He was happy just being able to be a good friend to her and he’s been there for her through some of the darkest moments of Dani’s life.

Now, after a year has passed since Joker’s death, something is shifting between Dani and EASY. Dani is starting to see Easy in a different light and she doesn’t know what to do with these new feelings. She struggles with guilt over her love for her dead husband and her fear of opening her heart up to someone new–someone who could be taken away from her just like her husband. Dani isn’t willing to go through that kind of heartbreak again.

Alex is also struggling with the new developments in his relationship with Dani. He feels as if he is betraying his best friend by going after Dani and he fears that if he pushes her too soon for something more that he could lose her all together and that’s something he wouldn’t be able to endure.


Wonderful twilight sky background

I fell so hard for Alex and every time Dani seemed to reject him, my heart broke for him. The heroine definitely had her head up her butt for most of the story but I was so engrossed and could hardly wait to see how the story would end for this couple!

If you’re looking for a sexy adult contemporary romance, then look no further!! ON BROKEN WINGS releases on January 3rd!!
