Secrets in the Air
Flying is in Rhett O’Neil’s blood. And nothing makes this pilot fly higher than wrapping himself in his husband Kaden’s arms. He’s thrilled when his grandfather entrusts him with O’Neil Airways, the family’s charter airplane business. With a mix of humanitarian and corporate clients, Rhett plans a bright future where his success improves the world.
Elise, Rhett’s estranged mother, begins offering advice to “help” her son through the transition into increased responsibility. As evidence surfaces that her words are escalating into devastating actions, the truth comes out about the death of Rhett’s sister Annabelle. Following a harrowing mission, Kaden has to race to protect his husband and himself from the consequences of the Secrets in the Air before it’s too late.

I fell in love with the characters in this book. They felt so real and had distinct personalities that were easy to follow and connect with. The growth they experienced helped them progress through a plot that blew my mind. The romance and love between Rhett and Kaden was apparent and endured through the turmoil they dealt with. This plot was intense and kept me on the edge of my seat through to the end. The twists and turns within were amazing and well planned out.
The only reason this book received less than 4 or 5 stars is a combination of some formatting issues (mainly half sentences being repeated here and there that tend to interrupt the flow of the story) and some minor grammar issues (mostly misuse of ‘than’ when ‘then’ should have been used). While those did manage to bring me up short for a few moments when they happened, my attachment to Rhett, Kaden and even Pop kept me reading and I’m glad I finished it! Looking forward to reading the next one.
