A sexy and poignant romantic tale of a young daredevil pilot caught between two brothers. 

"When I was fourteen, I made a decision. If I was doomed to live in a trailer park next to an airport, I could complain about the smell of the jet fuel like my mom, I could drink myself to death over the noise like everybody else, or I could learn to fly."

Heaven Beach, South Carolina, is anything but, if you live at the low-rent end of town. All her life, Leah Jones has been the grown-up in her family, while her mother moves from boyfriend to boyfriend, letting any available money slip out of her hands. At school, they may diss Leah as trash, but she’s the one who negotiates with the landlord when the rent’s not paid. At fourteen, she’s the one who gets a job at the nearby airstrip.

But there’s one way Leah can escape reality. Saving every penny she can, she begs quiet Mr. Hall, who runs an aerial banner-advertising business at the airstrip and also offers flight lessons, to take her up just once. Leaving the trailer park far beneath her and swooping out over the sea is a rush greater than anything she’s ever experienced, and when Mr. Hall offers to give her cut-rate flight lessons, she feels ready to touch the sky.

By the time she’s a high school senior, Leah has become a good enough pilot that Mr. Hall offers her a job flying a banner plane. It seems like a dream come true . . . but turns out to be just as fleeting as any dream. Mr. Hall dies suddenly, leaving everything he owned in the hands of his teenage sons: golden boy Alec and adrenaline junkie Grayson. And they’re determined to keep the banner planes flying.

Though Leah has crushed on Grayson for years, she’s leery of getting involved in what now seems like a doomed business—until Grayson betrays her by digging up her most damning secret. Holding it over her head, he forces her to fly for secret reasons of his own, reasons involving Alec. Now Leah finds herself drawn into a battle between brothers—and the consequences could be deadly.

It's going to be a quick review.

This book is so romantic, cute, and make me want to cuddle with it xp

Okay, obviously it's a teen/YA romantic contemporary fiction. So it's just in a way kinda predictable once you have read like the first 100 pages. But I really enjoyed it a lot.

The characters were pretty interesting and very well developed. Then the story line along with the real-life issues that those characters experienced had supported the drama to kinda rile me up a bit.

And the making out sessions was steamy alright. hehe..

Nothing much to tell other than I love that the story was setting in plane/air-flight business industry. And the girl was quite kick-ass too or at least feisty. And the boy, hah finally too much doze of watching teen-tv series has paid off big time, coz I just can imagine what kind of hot and sassy guy this boy is.

I know I don't tell much about the story coz I don't want it to be spoilers. As I said earlier it's kinda simple and predictable for my taste. But it's a cute one and romantic <3
