Catch A Falling Star
In this sweet story, two characters are thrown together and appear as if they are doomed to always be at odds. I love when a romance starts out this way. The tone is lighthearted and the story is dotted with humor, even as the characters deal with some weighty issues.
The hero is a military pilot, the heroine is a doctor. Two interesting careers are explored in a very entertaining way. The pilot is facing possible grounding while he tries to become a parent to his much younger brother. The doctor is happy, but lonely. Her younger sister is pressing her to give up her grandmother’s ring since it looks like she’s never getting married.
This is a really fun romance. It’s easy to read, pays homage to a beautiful setting (CO) and contains lots of fun details. You’ll especially love it if you know something about Jeeps.
I so enjoyed the stories behind each character. All the action felt very true to each individual character and they felt like real people. It’s one of the highest compliments I can give - these made up characters felt real to me.
Lots of romances pit two very unlikely characters against one another and almost dare them to fall in love. Do you think this happens in real life very often? Did you ever place your special someone in the never gonna happen category?
