From the New York Times bestselling authors of Stuck-Up Suit and Cocky Bastard, comes a sexy new standalone novel.
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.

I am a huge fan of the Penelope Ward/Vi Keeland writing collaboration! Cocky Bastard and Stuck-Up Suit were fabulous and fun, and Playboy Pilot is no different. It’s sweet, sexy, humorous, a little angsty, and comes with the signature plot twist. I had a smile on my face for most of the story and enjoyed it to the end.
Carter is a pilot who has earned his playboy reputation. After losing a girlfriend at a young age, he never wanted to fall in love and get hurt by a woman again. Although he enjoys the carefree lifestyle that his job affords him, he’s ready for a change.
Kendall is at a crossroads in her life and needs to decide if she wants to follow the path her family laid out for her life or take the bull by the horns and strike out on her own. Putting off the decision, Kendall decides to take a trip to think things through. While in the airport lounge, she runs into a handsome man who helps her figure out where to go on her trip. Following Carter to Rio becomes one of the best spur-of-the-moment decisions Kendall has ever made.
Kendall and Carter have great chemistry and I enjoyed their adventures. They hop the globe together and the locations were fantastic. I felt like I was along for the ride right along with them. As with the previous two books, there are plenty of common themes, puns, and coincidences throughout. I loved how the Beatles and their songs were featured heavily in the plot.
So, if you’re a fan of Ward and Keeland or just love sweet romances with exotic locales, you’re sure to enjoy Playboy Pilot. I definitely did!
