I'm not loving this, it's above meh. There seems to be a bit of story and a lot of groping, rubbing and ridiculous running for you lives without a damn answer to why. Really who would run from bullets without and explanation for this chick ????? Not one of her better books. Now, do I DNF it and try another of do I continue with meh+ ? I DNF, my time is worth more than this. No more meh sandwiches
I think I feel betrayed because this is Jill Shalvis and I expect so much more. I started, then put this away for more than a month and finally ran out of other things to read. Aside from a TSTL, whiny heroine, dismal characterization and completely gratuitous sex in the middle of life and death situations, this book contains cringingly awful attempts at Spanish. "El ir de la subsistencia"?? "Gasolina de la necesidad"?? Seriously?! That just finally broke the camel's back for me and brought this [...]
Jill Shalvis is currently one of my comfort authors and I (usually) love her more recent books. This one though was neither comforting, nor good, and I definitely did not like it. I wonder if it is due to the book being released in 2007 or because it's released by Brava (I remember Brava having more sex contents). Anyway, I'm not going to say much because other negative reviews have said it better. The only reason I didn't DNF was because I was behind my challenge so I didn't want to. I did a l [...]
Jill Shalvis is a fabulous writer. Time and again, she has seamlessly blended humor and heat with some sort of suspense, all while ensuring that an emotional connection between each immensely charismatic hero and intelligent, strong heroine not only exists, but evolves and deepens in a believable, emotional manner. That has held true for every single Jill Shalvis book that I have read - and I've read more than a few - except, unfortunately, for this one.That is not to say that the humor isn't th [...]
I hate the heroine. She's too contradictory, she's a pussy, and I'll eat glass before I believe the "Smart" in this book title refers to Bailey. No way. I've read over some pretty horrible heroines and I have high standards for the girls that try to take on the bad guys all by themselves. If they're TSTL, I put the book down. I don't want to suspend my disbelief so a character doesn't seem too stupid to not get killed. I mean, really. Vampires, werewolves, explosions not killing people, guys kic [...]
First time reading this author, and I wasn't impressed. The characters are pleasantly forgettable and the premise of the story requires some suspension of disbelief. It is supposed to be a 'hot'read, but considering that they are on the run, the 'lusting' for each other just seemed contrived and impractical. I mean, they are running for their lives and yet they have time to stop and make out, when the bad guys are practically breathing hard on their necks.I owned the second book, so I'll probabl [...]
What a pitiful excuse for a romantic suspense novel. More like plotless sex disguised as a story.The suspense was blah, the hero was a cardboard, one-dimensional dummy, the heroine was a TSTL, air-headed (who changes outfits in the middle of a flight-for-life) bitch with trust issues (he was in deep shit right alongside her and she still refused to tell him everything, because she feared she would put him in dangerhello, bullets flying!)And there was too much (rather meaningless) sex.
Love you Ms. Shalvis but NOT one of your better books.
Além do romance teve também aventura e foi engraçado. Só não gostei que, apenas após umas horas de Noah encontrar Bailey no seu avião, já estão enrolados.
Book Description: Noah Fisher has worked for months to make Sky High the most prestigious charter airline in California. He's long overdue for a break - something involving ski slopes, cold beers, and hot ski bunny babes, not necessarily in that order. The itinerary doesn't include being hijacked by Bailey Sinclair, gorgeous widow of one of Sky High's wealthiest (ex-) clients. But here they are, and being crammed in a cockpit with the scared, stubborn, unbelievably sexy former model he's been fa [...]
3.5 starsJill Shalvis is a wordsmith. She is extremely talented. I just didn't fit with this story. I couldn't relate or enjoy the constant lust while in life threatening situations. It was a little too much for me. While I'd be sh*ting my pants, these two were oblivious to the people trying to kill them - a one track mind for bumping uglies. Still fabulously written. I just couldn't connect with these two as much as I would've liked.
Well, this was Jill Shalvis, and that part I loved. She writes some really good steam and well, I always like her writing period. This story though, it was just a little too unbelievable. There was a lot that didn't add up, there was a lot that just kind of felt missing. It's ok though, I liked it enough, I liked the setup for the rest of the series and of course, I loved the steam. I am off to read the next one, I hope it's Brody.
This one was okay. It does not contain the humor I've come to recognize (and expect) from this author. Maybe because it's an older book (2007). I'm not sure. It was a quick, enjoyable read, but not great.
Nice, easy-to-read, and fun story. Loved Noah and Bailey. And, of course, a wonderful HEA. Noah, one of Sky High Air's partners, has just recovered from a tragic crash in which his passenger/girlfriend was killed. He's been out for 6 months and has decided to get back into flying by taking himself to Mammoth for a weekend of skiing and, hopefully, a couple of ski bunnies. Instead he ends up with a hijacker, Bailey Sinclair, a client as well as his secret crush. She's in trouble with some busines [...]
I haven't read every single Jill Shalvis novel, but I've read many of them. And this series is very different from the Lucky Harbor series. A lot happens in a short period of time in this series and the first entry introduces Brit Noah and socialite Bailey. Hot, off the chart chemistry that's helped along by the fact that they've been noticing each other for a while. Since she was married, they haven't done anything about it. They've hardly spoken. But her husband is dead and the reasons for tha [...]
Good book. Noah has been attracted to Bailey since she and her (now dead) husband started flying with him. Now she has hijacked him and his plane in an attempt to save her life. The bad guys told her that she had to find the money her husband stole from them or they'd kill her brother and her second grade students. At first, Noah wants nothing to do with it, but he soon realizes that she's really in trouble and scared. I really liked Noah and the way he is able to think on his feet and get them [...]
With Jill Shalvis, I either love her books or I hate them, no real in between. Love the lucky harbor series, but this book fell into the hate category. Was unable to finish this book, the heroine was pretty stupid for being a teacher, and just couldn't get into the book in a large part because of her. She used to be a model, still gorgeous, and yet so self-concise and can't understand that someone would find her attractive. She also has these "fears" about trust and men and i can sort of underst [...]
Cute story--Noah Fisher's one of the Sky High owners/pilots, gets highjacked by Bailey Sinclair, widow who's on the run from her late thieving husband's business partners Great chemistry, the story's nicely done. I did get a little bit annoyed by her reluctance to trust/involve Noah when he was clearly already on board (borders on overly independent/stupid) and was a little hmm at exactly how patient, horny, and MacGyver-ish Noah ended up being. Ms. Shalvis usually delivers a fun, funny, hot rea [...]
mikir buat review [image error]mmmhkurang gregetmancenya, heronyaaku kehilangan "roh" suspanse nya, Noah terlalu baik *nah loh hero baik jadi salah[image error] hahaha, biasanya dialog2 buku2 JJ selalu asyikbut buku kali ini kurang kayanyatai so far menghiburlah, and hot scene khas JJ [image error]
I wasn't sure about this one when I picked it up, but really got turned off when the heroine hijacked the hero in a plane using a bic pen and he didn't realize it. While I have never been hijacked, and am pretty stupid about guns it strikes me that a barrel of a gun is quite a bit larger than a pen. I kept reading after this factoid, but had a hard time with things. In the end the believability factor was something that I couldn't get past. This one just wasn't for me.
Loved Noah, he was former bad boy reformed running an private airline with his two gorgeous friends. This story sets up and introduces you briefly to other characters. Noah is the focus and Bailey who was recently widowed when her husband was killed in a hunting accident. Was it really an accident? Lot of adventure, running from the bad guys, sometimes Bailey being a pin head and running from Noah. Who is only trying to protect her.
Jill Shalvis is one of my Favourite authors, I always feeling like I have put on my protective blanket when I read one of her books.Like always the Hero's are hot and bad ass so no different to Noah in this book.Bailey really wasn't one of my favourite Heroine's but her and Noah fit so that was good enough for me.
Kept trying to get into it, since I'd waited for it so long from the librarybut just couldn't do it. The whole bad-guys-are-trying-to-kill-us-and-we-don't trust-each-other-at-all-but-hey!-I'm-hot-and-you're-hot-so-let's-spend-the-night-together bit just became waaaay too much to swallow.Ugh. Hopefully a trip back to Lucky Harbor will be more the thing.
This book has one of the longest day I ever read. I think it lasted at least 85 pages I great reading. I didn't like her so much at the beginning because she seemed to be a little too model-type and little brain but she grew on me.He was a wonderful hero. This author is great! I love her
This is not one of Shalvis best worke heroin is so,so soying.d whats up with wanting to talk whilst beeing chased by men with guns I didn´t like this much got 3 stars bc the funny banter is still there but its not enough
This book was pretty good. Bailey had a few TSTL moments through out the story, but over all it was pretty good. 3.5 for me, but I am going to stick with 3 stars, because it just didn't knock my socks off. Very steamy sex, but that doesn't always make the story great.
If you look at the reviews, I think I'm in the minority in that I LOVED this book. It was so over the top, but in a delicious way. Sexy pilot, woman on the run woot! Throw in some guns, gambling debts and, yup, hawt-private-jet company partners, and I'm all over this. Fun!
