His heart has been grounded for so long. But she’s about to give it wings...
Captain Judd Harlow is happiest in the air. It’s only when he’s flying that he can leave his childhood memories behind. But when he and his brothers find themselves the guardians of their 12-year-old half-sister, he knows moving back to the small Montana town where he grew up is the right thing.
When Savannah Casteele learns that a local pilot has agreed to fly her and her little boy to Chicago for a long-awaited surgery, she’s overcome with gratitude. A young, single mother, her first priority has always been raising her son the best way she knows how. But when she sees Judd for the first time, she’s unprepared for the affect he has on her heart: He’s stoic, guarded, and a little out of reach, reminding her that she’s not the only one who’s trying to put aside a broken past.
As they begin falling for one another, brought together by the children in their lives, they start seeing family not just as something you’re given, but something you create. And that the heart, no matter how scarred, is always capable of a tender, new beginning. But are they both willing to take a leap of faith to get there?
Let me start by saying, I was hooked right from the start of this book. Savannah Casteele and Judd Harlow met when Judd flew Savannah and her four year old son, Wyatt, to Chicago for Wyatt’s cleft lip surgery. Savannah had given up on men when her ex left shortly after Wyatt was born. She wanted to be the best mother possible, so she worked hard and didn’t date. But when she met Judd, she was surprised by the instant attraction she had for him.
Judd was a pilot who had returned to Marietta to help his brothers raise his half-sister. Judd didn’t have relationships. He didn’t believe in love. But, when he started spending time with Savannah, everything changed. He tried to fight the feelings at first, but just couldn’t get her out of his mind. It was a quick start to a relationship, and there were some rocky parts, but in the end, they found their happily ever after.
This was one of those books that I just didn’t want to end. I became emotionally attached to the characters, especially Wyatt. The writing felt so real. This story reminds me of one of those Hallmark TV Channel movies. I can easily visualize it now. Even though this book is part of a series, it can definitely be read on its own.
