Genre: Contemporary Romance
Book Description: Will Paige decide to share her heart or fly solo?
Paige Hall’s happy ending may just be in sight. She has been dating her boyfriend for months and feels confident their relationship is going in the right direction—until she catches him kissing another woman. Humiliated and hurt, Paige retreats from the dating scene and pledges to never fall hard again as she throws herself into her work as a speech therapist. Her vow is upended in a grocery store parking lot when she is nearly run over by a handsome and very apologetic air force pilot.
Captain Jake Summers is everything a girl could dream of: charming, considerate, and hardworking. Despite Paige’s determination to avoid falling into another relationship, her resolve is no match for the whirlwind romance that ensues. When Jake is not flying, he and Paige are inseparable, and Paige begins to believe in happily ever afters again. But when the couple faces a heartrending loss, they must find strength in each other and in their faith or risk losing a once-in-a-lifetime love.
My thoughts: I was ready and willing to spend more time with the characters in Flying in Love. Unfortunately for me, the book came to an end. I'm sure that Chalon Linton has more fantastic books to write, so I guess I'll just have to be content.
This story has amazing characters. I couldn't help but fall in love with Paige and Jake's story. They are incredibly good and imperfect. Paige has trust issues (for a good reason) and Jake comes to save the day by almost running over her in a parking lot. The truth is that on different occasions they save each other. They develop a "balanced" relationship.
Jake is such a great guy. He is the kind of MC that most women hope they meet and fall in love with someday. He has great values and knows how to treat others. From the moment we meet him, it becomes apparent that he is perfect for Paige. I like to think of his as imperfectly perfect. He is so respectful and kind. He is the kind of man that Paige needs in her life.
Paige has a fantastic best friend and roommate. Everyone needs someone who you can sit down with and watch a Jane Austen movie. Mandy is the great support that provides needed but unwanted advice at times. She holds Paige together when it seems as if her world is crumbling.
I also enjoyed the complicated relationship that Paige has with her mom. Mom and daughter relationships can be complex, but I loved how Chalon Linton illustrates how to treat that relationship. I think she added a great perspective.
I honestly can't say enough good things about this book, so I'll just close by saying that you should read it!
