Review: Playboy Pilot by Penelope Ward
“We’re two wrongs that somehow make a right. Inseparable we’re miserable, but together…we somehow work.
Title: Playboy Pilot
Author: Penelope Ward
Genres: Romance, New Adult, Contemporary
I have a thing for pilots and firefighters. Ever since I read Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover and fell in love with Miles, pilots have had a special place in my heart. Same thing with firefighters, catch me in my free time binge watching shows like 9-1-1 and Station 19. So, when I glanced at this book in Kindle Unlimited I felt it was perfect. Perfect for the type of book I wanted to read, perfect for Valentine's Day, perfect in all senses. I have no regrets, this book was everything I expected it to be and it took me on a swoon worthy adventure.
The book opens up as Kendall, our main heroine, is trying to decide what location she wants to go to in order to take a break of the heavy decision she has to make in regards to her money and legacy. There, she meets Carter and they immediately start flirting and a potent chemistry is clear from the very beginning. Carter tells her to choose Brazil, when she does, she does not expect him to be the guy flying the plane and crazily she also doesn't expect to go with him to a hotel to spend the night. Surely, both characters start falling in love with one another. However, Kendall has to make a decision whether or not she is going to birth a child and later give it up for adoption. The reason for this is that her grandfather has left her a hefty bank account with the condition that she has a male child before her birthday. She is not ready to be a mother so her plan was to birth the child and later give it up, however after meeting Carter that plan sounds more and more evil by the minute.
My favorite aspect of the book has to be all the adventures and traveling scenes there were. It was so romantic and made me feel as if I was watching a movie, as the couple chose what destination they were going to go together. Whatever it was Dubai or Rio de Janeiro watching them enjoy each other's presence in different cultures was beautiful. The plot is actually really neatly done and developed, it was incredible to see the characters grow individually before they actually ended up together. It also talked a lot about fate and destiny which was a unique point to dwell into.
The only downside was Carter's language. The steamy scenes were great and they added to the story in beautiful ways. However, Carter gave me a bad impression at the beginning as his language was so crass and he immediately started talking about Kendall's body and boobs. It just didn't sit well with me, and maybe his language was supposed to be sexy but I just thought it was at time disrespectful.
