The Wild Aces series by Chanel Cleeton has been one I have thoroughly enjoyed. On Broken Wings, the third book in this series shares Easy’s story. I knew going into this tale it might require truffles. As predicted I cried like a baby, even as I smiled. Come meet, Alex “Easy” Rogers your next book boyfriend
Coffee dates (and truffles) with On Broken Wings
First date: The Wild Aces series features a squadron of F-16 pilots and the women who steal their hearts. The Wild Aces fly together and play together, so we get to know all of them throughout the series. I recommend reading these books in order. The emotional connection that forms with each story will only enhance your reading experience. It had been a year since Dani lost her husband and Easy struggles between being there for her and his feelings. I was so worried about how everything would work in this story, but Cleeton pulled me in from the very fist page.
Second date: All of the feels!!! We get updates on the other couples, see Easy, struggle and watch Dani notice Easy in a new light. I love that theirs is a friendship to lovers romance. The story will tug at your heartstrings. Cleeton did such a fantastic job of connecting the reader emotionally to their story. While this story to me was low-heat, we do get some sizzling hot moments. We get to melt along with Dani as Cleeton describes in glorious detail what Dani is suddenly noticing about Easy. The man is pantie melting eye candy with a heart of pure gold.
Third date: Confusion, guilt, need, and more swirl around this couple. At this point, I am completely caught up in the story. Not even a fire could move me from my Kindle. A plot twist didn’t surprise me, in fact, the moment something happened I knew how it would play out. Normally I am not a fan of this particular trope, but never have I been happier. This last date had me laughing, crying, wiping tears, hugging myself and savoring every word. Despite the emotional trauma for the reader, the tale was low in angst. Folks acted like adults and Cleeton didn’t rush things, allowing the reader to experiences everything.
On Broken Wings delivered all the feels and left me with a serious book hangover. Break out the truffles, turn off your phone and enjoy. If you read one contemporary romance series this year, make it The Wild Aces.On Broken Wings by Chanel Cleeton delivered all the feels. Making me smile even as I cried. Click To Tweet
