There was a time in a woman’s life when she had to accept that wearing a headband made of pink—glittery—illuminated penises was too much. I couldn’t put my finger on the number—and I definitely couldn’t do it after my fourth tequila shot—but I figured that at thirty and still single, bachelorettes had ceased to be a fun rite of passage, and had instead become a wake-up call that if Prince Charming wasn’t coming soon, I’d have to start exploring my options in the amphibian variety.
Of course, it didn’t help that this was my sister’s bachelorette—my cute-as-a-button, too-young-for-wrinkle-cream sister’s bachelorette. Or that she was marrying my high school ex-boyfriend. I didn’t care; I mean we hadn’t been together in over a decade, but the fact that my future brother-in-law had once seen me topless added to the surreal feeling of the whole thing.
I took shot number five like a champ.
“I’m getting married!” Meg screamed for what might have been the fifteenth time that night. Somewhere between dinner at Lavo and partying at Tao, this seemed to have hit her with a vengeance. On anyone else, it would have been annoying; on Meg, it was somehow still adorable.
At twenty-five, she was the baby of the family. A good five inches shorter than me, we shared the same blond hair and brown eyes. We both had curves, but on her, they were bite-size. I was a king-size—tits and ass that could put your eye out—not to mention the pink phalluses bobbing awkwardly on my head.
It had been Meg’s idea to dress up, and I hadn’t been able to disappoint her. So here I was, thirty years old, terminally single, wearing penises on my head, a hot pink barely there tube dress that made me look like an overmammaried Malibu Barbie, and fuck-me Choos that topped me out at six feet. If I ever got married, I was so not doing a bachelorette. Or bridesmaids in hideous dresses. Or arguing with my fiancé over whether we’d serve filet mignon or prime rib. I loved meat as much as the next girl, but the drama surrounding this wedding had my head spinning, and I was just the maid of honor. If I were the bride? I totally got why people eloped.

book review: 4 stars
This is the second book I read by Chanel Cleeton and I have to say that she keeps amaze me with how cool and amazing her unfolding-stories mind works. And this time, she really let it go in a genre that is intriguing and which she made it even more adding her Wild Aces hot guys.
But let me take it from the start…..
Fly With Me is the first installment in the Wild Aces series and it tells the story of Noah and Jordan, two persons with completely different lives who are brought together in a Las Vegas bar so they can complete each other. Everything starts when Noah, an U.S. Air Force fighter pilot sets his eyes on Jordan, a boutique owner, in a Las Vegas bar while she was at her sister’s bachelorette. From the first moment they met, the sparks were flying all around the place and every place they went afterwards. Their whole stay in the sin city they spend it together. But, when it’s time to get back to their realities, no one wants and can forget everything they did and felt while being together so they fight to make it work no matter where they are. Life, though, doesn’t let them walk down the easy way.
As Noah and Jordan come closer and their feelings for each other starting to get deeper, they have to deal with all the obstacles, difficulties, dilemmas etc that are thrown at them. Although, they refuse to give up and keep fighting to the end. And in those moments, the love they share shows its depth and majesty and their inner strength comes to life more powerful than ever. I couldn’t deny my love for them when I saw them like that. Everything is written with the intensity and toughness that is the army life which, combined with the love story, makes a very overwhelming book you don’t want to miss.
I didn’t care if he was a badass; he was my badass.
The characters is incredibly well-written, with characteristics that will captivate you to no end who are thrown into a plot that matches the uniqueness, wonder and intensity of them. If I could choose one word which can describe the atmosphere in this story, this word will undoubtedly be the Struggle since there is no character in there who doesn’t go through a difficult situation and has to struggle to stay strong and standing. Chanel made a great work writing Fly With Me, giving it all the love it deserves. The recommendation of this book goes without question.
