Ex-Army Ranger, Brand Killien, has always been good.
A good friend, a good soldier, a good everything. .
The problem is, good hasn’t gotten him anything but a crushed heart.
So after licking his wounds, he decides to move on. And moving on doesn’t include being good anymore.
Bad sounds so much better.
Jaded and detached, Brand is determined to never open himself up to anyone again. It’s not worth the pain. Instead, he becomes closed, hardened, aloof.
But then he’s called back home for a family emergency… a family that he is estranged from. A family that he put out of his mind a long time ago for very good reasons…reasons that involve secrets and pain. Reasons he tried hard to forget.
But home is where the heart is, and it just might be where Brand finds his again.
Why? Because home is where Nora Greene is. A fiery, red-headed spitfire, Nora is a thing from his past. A beautiful, feisty thing. When Brand left, she was away at boarding school.
But she’s back now.
I’ve been so excited about this book. I absolutely adore Brand. He’s simply amazing. He’s loyal, brave, loving and so very strong. In the last book Jacey sort of broke his heart. I’m not gonna lie. She seriously pissed me off. I wanted her and Brand to be together, but alas it wasn’t meant to be. And now that I’ve read Until We Fly I’m ok with that because I think Nora is his perfect match. I loved sinking into their world and experiencing their relationship as it grew throughout the book.
These two have both been through a lot in their lives. Both have experienced hard times in their childhood. Neither one of them deserved to be treated the way they were treated when they were young, but I do think if any positive could come from it it made them very strong people.
With both Brand and Nora dealing with their issues throughout this story things stay really interesting. A lot of secrets are revealed. Some I sort of guessed. While others I didn’t see coming. Ms Cole did a great job with the flow of this book. It sucked me in and didn’t let go until the end.
The smexy times are comparable to adult mainstream. Though they aren’t explicit in nature they are still hot to read and well written.
Overall, I really liked this book. Its not my favorite of the series, but it is truly a great read. I hope that if you haven’t given this series a try yet that you will do so. I love all of these characters and hope you will too.
