About me

Hi I'm Janna and I am a book whore! I started this blog after being a part of another for years. While being a big blog may be nice I like to stay true to me having a love for books, that's why I blog. I love books and I want to share that love with my readers of this blog. I love to read, books are my escape and a huge part of my life besides my husband and two children. I am honest and sometimes sassy in my reviews but never mean. Some of my favorite authors include Kristen Ashley, Penelope Douglas, T.M. Frazier, M.N. Forgy, Rachel Van Dyken, Meghan March and Vi Keeland to only name a few!

ARC Review! Landing the Air Marshal by Jennifer Blackwood

It was meant to be a one-night stand. One wicked night with an irresistibly sexy passenger. That’s all Air Marshal Gage Michaels can afford--his career comes before everything else. Too bad the snowpocalpyse of the century has different plans for him and Abby Winters. Before the night's over, they find themselves snowed in at the most luxurious hotel in the city.

Abby’s scouting job of a NYC penthouse should be quick, simple, and definitely shouldn’t include a sexy-as-hell man messing up the 3000 count sheets that will be featured in her company’s next blockbuster hit. Not when she’s up for a promotion that could skyrocket her entire career in the film industry. Still, she can't refuse what the weather gods so obviously want her to have. She'll give in, just this once.

Leaving is tougher than either of them could have imagined. But they’re two people who have nothing in common, living on opposite coasts. There’s no way they can ever be together. Right?
I really liked this book, obviously, I gave it 5 stars. In a lot of ways, this is different than the normal titles in this line, and this is part of the reason. It has a lot of depth for a shorter novel, a lot of characterization, and a lot of authenticity that drew me in.

Gage and Abby are real. You relate to them, to their questioning if what they have is real. To them questioning if you can develop an intense attraction to someone in just a couple of days. There are some elements of it that are a little predictable, as there are certain things that just have to happen in a romance...but what I loved is that instead of tossing these in, I Jennifer Blackwood let them face them head on...was their romance insane? They addressed it, instead of just letting it be a cliche. Do they get snowed in? Yes...but, it is addressed, it is something they are glad about.

It was a fresh take on a story that had been maybe told before, and I loved that about it.

I also loved that the HEA left some gaps. Do you know exactly how they will pull theirs off? No. YOu have an idea, and you believe they will, but you don't know the how. And, to me, this is what I loved...the parts you expect to be not fully dealt with are, and those that are usually tied up neatly are left just a little open.

This was refreshing, and really really good.
