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.


“Carter? What are you doing?”
I laughed under my breath and banged the back of my head against the wood. “Praying?”
“Do you always breathe like that when you’re praying?”
“It’s an intense prayer.”
“What are you really doing?”
“I think you might know what I’m really doing, Kendall.”
“Can I come in?”
Still fully erect, I tucked my c*ck back into my pants as best I could before opening the door.
Her eyes trailed down to my massive erection. “I’m sorry….to make you resort to that.”
“It’s okay. My hand and I haven’t spent time like this since I was a teenager. I think he missed me.”
“What were you thinking about?”
“Yeah…but what specifically?”
“It was this fantasy of f*cking you on the dance floor back at the club.”
She looked down at me again. Her expression was serious when she asked, “You need some help?”
“I thought you said we weren’t going to go there.”
“I can’t have sex with you. But I want to touch you. I could take my clothes off, let you finish what you started. You know…help you.”
Looking up at the ceiling, I shook my head. “You have no f*cking clue, do you?”
“What do you mean?”
“How crazy you make me. There’s no halfway with you. Jerking off with your naked body right in front of me…not being able to do what I really want to you…would be torture. I don’t have that kind of willpower, not with you, not anymore. Even when I kiss you, all I can think about is burying myself inside of you. But you naked in front of me? Too much, Kendall. When you strip down for me, I want it to be when you’re ready to let me have you. Otherwise, it’s better if I don’t know what I’m missing out on.”
Looking filled with remorse, she waved her hands. “Okay. I get it. I’m sorry…for interrupting.”
“Go back to bed. I’ll be right there.”
After Kendall left, I closed my eyes in regret. Was I crazy for turning her away like that?
Now that she knew what I was up to in here, I couldn’t relax. Still needing release like a motherf*cker, I turned on the shower and got in. Ironically, I jerked myself to thoughts of her naked body against the bathroom door and imagined she was watching me.
F*ck my life.

Carra's Review

I've said it before and I'm going to say it again...this writing duo is utterly fantastic. They always give readers solid, well developed characters, an interesting storyline, and plenty of heat and attraction to keep things spicy. The same goes for Playboy Pilot...and Carter and Kendall are one heck of a flirtatious matchup!

My favorite thing about this story is Carter. He is totally open and honest with Kendall right from the start, immediately attracted to her not just for her looks-almost as if there is a pull between them that neither can deny or resist. Things between them are hard, fast and intense, becoming super-serious in very short order. I wouldn't really call it insta-love though, it's more of a very quick development due to the level of intensity they share from the first moment they meet, and how they learn so much about each other in a short period of time. Another thing about Carter--he's really not what he seems, at least not totally...especially when he's at home-which is where I loved him the most.

Now me personally? I wasn't a big fan of the situation that Kendall is contemplating when she meets Carter, nor his wholehearted response when they are preparing to part the first time (I'd say more but don't want to spoil anything for you). I just can't fathom anyone making that kind of declaration after knowing someone such a short time, no matter how intense and deep things seem between them. The other thing I wasn't fond of was Kendall's mother. I just wanted to smack some sense into her, and I'm very glad that Kendall stood up for herself.

There's some tough drama, and after things fall apart the two of them don't seem quite the same-less intensity and I just didn't feel the same deep connection as in the beginning of their relationship. But in the midst of them reconnecting, even though things between them weren't quite the same, the story gave me one hell of a start with Gordon's letter (I know, that's a tease...but you'll see what I mean when you get to it), and that pulled me in once again.

Another great collaboration, Playboy Pilot was a 4-star read for me. I'd recommend this story for contemporary romance fans 18+ for adult language and sexual content.
