Ok, I may be in the minority here with this review, but here goes...
I didn't love this book, but I didn't hate it either. It was just ok for me.
I found the plot to be interesting, however it was way overshadowed by the sexual tension and intimate situations that seemed to be a constant theme in the entire book. I would have much rather read about a more developed plot than all the four letter words referring to body parts. If you are wanting a mindless read, this is your book.
I really enjoyed this book. Jill Shalvis has become one of my favorite authors...I love the wit and all the characters she creates--from the main characters to the secondary characters.
There are plenty of good characters in this one...the airport crew is well painted and interesting. Mel and Bo have good chemistry and the "romance" is H-O-T. :)
This was a quick and easy read--I had a hard time putting it down until I was done.
Loved It! When Bo Black comes back and tells Mel Anderson he has the deed to her airport and her mentors been lying for years the sparks fly.
Aussie Rules by Jill Shalvis is a witty, fun and sexy book.
Melanie Anderson lived to fly, nothing gave her the rush, the control and the freedom that flying did. Flying gave her the security that she has lacked all of her life. Her coworkers are her family and she will do anything to protect them. Suddenly her neat and orderly world is turned upside down by the return of her youthful crush, Bo Black.
Bo Black, pilot and plane restorer has come back to North Beach to claim his inheritance and clear his late fathers name. Bo is convinced the former owner Sally Wells stole from them and smeared his dad's good name. Only problem is convincing fiercely independent Mel of the truth and keeping his hands off the all grown up woman.
Mel and Bo both want answers, each feels that they are in the right. As they search for the truth someone wants them to leave well enough alone.
Aussie Rules, I feel is Jill Shalvis's best work to date. The characters are well written, flaws and all. Bo is a delightful Alpha male, he knows what he wants and goes for it. But he is willing to show his tender side to protect those he loves. Mel is a strong willed woman, her past has made her who she is today. She is so leery of Bo can he be for real? Once she lets go her whole world opens up.
Jill Shalvis writes keepers. The chemistry between the characters burns up every page. The secondary characters add such depth to an already knock out book.
This was a great book to read.
Funny mix of an Aussie hero out for revenge and a mixed batch of American odd balls in a private airline business. Well done, funny, nicely defined characters, decent plot as they grow and change.
