Meet Colton Wade, FMX rider...
I’m just a small town guy who caught a lucky break. Now I’m living the dream, on the brink of high-flying super-stardom. But something’s missing.
That something is Taylor.
She’s my best friend. The one who makes me want to push harder and higher. The one I fall back on when shit gets tough. The one I’d give it all up for.
I’d do anything to protect her. To make her dreams come true too.
But a single night changes everything.
And now the one she needs protection from...is me.

book review: 4 High Fly stars!!!
I’m breaking. I’m literally breaking right now. Everything in me feels raw and close to shattering. I barely keep myself sane so I can write this review. So, let’s take this gem from the start.
Fly is, except the first book on the Velocity series, the love story between two best friends, Colton and Taylor. Colton is a FMX, aka motocross, rider. He’s living the big life and little by little, building his career. But, there is someone from back home than never never flees his mind: Taylor, his best friend for 15 years. As for Taylor, her life is more complicated and….. tough. She has been through some emotionally hard situations and was forced to abandon her dreams for awhile so she can take care of her family. Though, also, her best friend Colton never never flees her mind.
He held me like he owned me and, in a way, he does.
But soon, their relationship and connection is going to rise into higher, more…… intimate levels. Lovers levels. In one fateful night, at the “sinful” city, everything is getting upside down.
The story may be about the usual “two-best-friends-who-turn-into-lovers” case, but it has nothing in common with its other similar ones. In this one, your heart is getting squished. Really squished. Especially towards the end, where you don’t know where the tornado of all the emotions imaginable is coming from. I got totally off guard with the emotional variety and whirlwind in which my mind, heart and body gone through. Really, the recovery of such attack isn’t easy and if you bear in mind the way McLain reached the finish line of this first part of T and Col’s love, it only gets harder. But, besides that, it worths every damn second I spent on reading and breaking over it.
Molly McLain done an amazing job with this book. Not only she wrote a love story between two best friends, but, more than that, she showed through it that the different realities/lives of two persons can easily form barriers that are not always easy to pass, no matter how strong the love is. She, also, showed that the only weapon that we have against these barriers-enemies is the willingness to fight to the end for what we want. And in this story, this willingness is more than enough and completely heart-warming. Fight can’t get here soon enough!!! I need to see what will happen next with these incredible characters/lovers and in what position they will be placed after they go through the final round of this race for happiness.
