Noah Fisher has worked for months to make Sky High the most prestigious charter airline in California. He's long overdue for a break—something involving ski slopes, cold beers, and hot ski bunny babes. The itinerary doesn't include being hijacked by Bailey Sinclair, gorgeous widow of one of Sky High's wealthiest (ex-) clients. But here they are, and being crammed in a cockpit with the scared, stubborn, unbelievably sexy former model he's been fantasizing about invokes Superman tendencies that could get Noah in serious trouble.

Bailey is desperate to find the stash of money hidden by her conniving, thieving late husband—before the bad guys he owed find her. It's a long shot, but nothing compared to the gamble she's taking by being so close to Noah. Every minute in his company has Bailey thinking about doing crazy, reckless things like touching, grabbing, kissing...and oh wow, being kissed right back...

My rating:

What a pitiful excuse for a romantic suspense novel. More like plotless sex disguised as a story.

The suspense was blah, the hero was a cardboard, one-dimensional dummy, the heroine was a TSTL, air-headed (who changes outfits in the middle of a flight-for-life) bitch with trust issues (he was in deep shit right alongside her and she still refused to tell him everything, because she feared she would put him in danger...hello, bullets flying!)...

And there was too much (rather meaningless) sex.
