Summary: A sexy and poignant romantic tale of a young daredevil pilot caught between two brothers.

High school senior Leah Jones loves nothing more than flying. While she’s in the air, it’s easy to forget life with her absentee mother at the low-rent end of a South Carolina beach town. When her flight instructor, Mr. Hall, hires her to fly for his banner advertising business, she sees it as her ticket out of the trailer park. And when he dies suddenly, she’s afraid her flying career is gone forever.     

But Mr. Hall’s teenage sons, golden boy Alec and adrenaline junkie Grayson, are determined to keep the banner planes flying. Though Leah has crushed on Grayson for years, she’s leery of getting involved in what now seems like a doomed business — until Grayson betrays her by digging up her most damning secret. Holding it over her head, he forces her to fly for secret reasons of his own, reasons involving Alec. Now Leah finds herself drawn into a battle between brothers — and the consequences could be deadly.

Review: It's no secret that I love all of Jennifer Echol's books, but this one was so different from her light, fun romances. And you know what? I absolutely loved it!

Leah has had anything but a perfect life. She's lived in endless trailer parks with her mom who had her as a teenager who can't seem to hold onto a job or a boyfriend. Normally I don't like reading about girls like Leah who flirt with guys and use their looks to their advantage, but Leah did it in such a way that I didn't really mind. All of the other girls in school already thought that she was trailer trash, so Leah managed to handle herself really well considering she really only had one friend (who happened to be friends with the people being nasty to her). But enough of Leah's tragic school life. Let's get to the good part: The Hall brothers. 

Leah fell in love with flying ever since she took lessons from the hanger next door. When Leah first saw Grayson, one of the sons of the hanger's owner, she crushed hard. But coming from her background, Leah knew she could never have him. Three years later, when Grayson's dad and older brother died, leaving just him and his twin brother Alec with their mom, things at the hanger become tense. Leah and the boys are trying to recover from losing people they cared about, which includes Grayson convincing Leah to date his brother. And that's just the beginning of the drama! 

Through a whirlwind of flying planes, losing loved ones, and awkward double dates, Leah learns more about herself that she never new before. This book is definitely edgier and more serious than anything Jennifer Echols has ever written, but I loved it nonetheless. The whole aviation angle was so original and I never knew what else was going to come from the dark and stormy Grayson Hall. And I've got to say, I think I definitely have a new book crush! Can't I just have Grayson all for myself?? Please?

But seriously, this book was awesome. And you have to read it now! With boys, planes, and a spring break to remember, what else could you ask for in a book??
