Instead of reviewing all three books of this trilogy one by one, I decided to write 3 mini reviews instead so I could tell you about all of them at once, because this Wild Aces trilogy by Chanel Cleeton is a trilogy I want to tell you guys about asap. I bought the books months ago because I was in need of more military romance, but they ended up unread on my shelves until very recently. Out of the blue I decided to start with ‘Fly with Me’, the first book in the trilogy, and I was HOOKED.
I’ve read all three books back to back, because when I started Fly with me I was immediately ‘ALL IN’ and just couldn’t stop reading. Every free second I picked up my book and devoured page by page. The second and third book didn’t have any less impact on me, so before I knew it I was done reading the complete trilogy!
#1 FLY WITH ME
This book was an amazing read which I loved from beginning till end.
And it had me ugly crying for several chapters, so yeah.. A book that hits me right in the feels, like this one did, definitely deserves a high rating!
The writing is addictive and I finished the book within a day.
I really liked the characters and the intense romance, the story developing and the angst woven throughout the story. Of course I’m a BIG FAN of the military elements.. I mean, come one; F-16 fighter pilots? What’s not to like? exactly haha.
So yeah, if you’re a fan of an intense, angst-ridden and well developed romance and story-line.. combined with military elements, really likable characters and an amazing and addictive writing style? You need to pick up this book!!!
“What can you promise me?” I asked, needing to hear the words, knowing he’d give them to me. He took a breath as though it pained him. “That I love you. That I’ll always love you. That I will do everything in my power to stay safe, to come home to you. That I will die loving you, whenever that is. That I will do anything I can to make this lifestyle work for us. That if it comes down to a choice I can make, I will always choose you over my career. I’ll give you a family if you want it. I’ll spend my life loving you, working to make you happy.”
#2 INTO THE BLUE
This is definitely one of the best Second-chance romances I’ve come across in my reading life, whow! I don’t always love second chance romances because it’s hard to write a well developed romance like this. But with this story, of ‘Thor’ and Becca there wasn’t even one single moment I didn’t feel like this was an incredible well developed romance. I really love the balance of every element in this story.
The characters are lovable and I connected with them instantly. Their story just really got to me and did all kind of crazy things to my heart *happy sigh*. I was rooting so hard for these two to get back together. And then there are still some really awesome fighter pilot elements, some already known characters present we met in the first book.. Yep, this was an incredible read yet again and I even liked it better than the first book hehe.
And Eric’Thor’.. he’s such an amazing hero. The way he fought for Becca was heartwarming and made me smile and I was really glad when Becca finally realized he loves her as much as she loves him. Eric was sweet and patient and such a swoon-worthy hero until the end. O and don’t let the sweet and heartwarming stuff cloud your mind, because these two characters explode like firework together, damn.. Their chemistry and sexy times were amazing and hot as hell and I crave more.
“…every time I imagined myself having a future with someone, it was always Becca.”
#3 ON BROKEN WINGS
Damn, damn, damn.. What a phenomenal and emotional roller-coaster this third Wild Aces book has been. Easy already stole my heart from the first moment he was introduced in Fly with me. But having finished his full novel story just now.. The impact is HUGE. It was clear how much he wanted Dani but couldn’t have her. I just wanted him to get the Happy Ever After that he deserved. So reading his story now…It broke me and it made me whole all at the same time.
Chanel Cleeton has worked her way into my fangirl heart with her phenomenal writing skills. There’s a feeling present, while reading the books, which make it obvious this author knows what she’s writing about. And she knows how to delivers emotions onto the page and into my heart on a level not many authors are able to with me.
The Wild Aces trilogy was amazing and ending it with this story about Easy and Dani was the perfect ending for the trilogy – even though I absolutely wasn’t ready for it to end because I crave so much more. It was such an intense, emotional and heart wrenching story.. One I’ll never forget. Everything comes full circle in this last book and I loved every second I spent reading this book. It had me laughing, swooning, crying my eyeballs out and fell in love with all of the characters all over again.
These books, and especially On Broken Wings, bombshell’ed their way into my heart and made it onto my all-time favorite romances-list !!!!
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.
As far as military romance goes, this trilogy has rapidly become one of my all-time favorites already and can easily match up to Rebecca Yarros’ Flight & Glory series I think – which is saying a lot, especially if you know how much I adore and love Rebecca’s Flyboys.
The Wild Aces made me fall in love with them, hard and fast. These Wild Aces romances are intense, romantic and swoon worthy. Heartbreaking from time to time, addictive and so beautiful! You could read them as stand a lone books, but I seriously recommend reading them in order, since the characters are going to be side characters in each others books and there’s a continuous time frame throughout the books as well. So yeah, bottom line; YOU NEED TO READ THESE BOOKS! Not only if you love military romance specifically – love TOP GUN for example? YOU NEED THESE BOOKS!!!!!
But these books are for everyone who loves romance in general with beautiful story-lines and amazing writing skills by the author. Chanel Cleeton succeeded blowing my mind with her writing skills. Every word on these pages lured me in, hooked me and never let me go again. These books touched me on a deep level, and I already can’t wait to re-read them!! And now I’m going to watch TOP GUN (again), because I crave for some fighter pilots video material, lol.
