Air Force Captain Josie Lockworth knows that the military is only providing lip service to her dream to prove her mom's theory on stealth aircraft or why else would they embed a reporter with her on her test flights. Bad publicity would doom the funding, but to make matters worse in Josie's mind is that they stuck her with Shannon Connor, who she detested when they both attended the Athena Academy for the Advancement of Women.
To obtain the millions needed to develop her mom's dream into a reality, Josie has to survive Shannon and persuade test observer Diego Morel to fund her project. Josie and Diego are attracted to one another, but she prefers a professional relationship although he wants more. As they work in close proximity, Diego has doubts on the merit of Josie's dream and knows rejection means the end of his relationship with the woman he loves before it soars off the ground.
The latest Athena Academy romantic suspense is an interesting tale on what goes into aircraft testing starring an obsessive female pilot and a veteran knowing he may have to choose between the woman he loves and the right stuff for the military. The story line contains sold characters including the support cast, but except for the wonderful flying scenes the action is limited. Still military romance readers will appreciate the cross purpose pursuits of the likeable lead characters.
wow! Ordered by accident but I have no regrets and will look for more of the Athena Force books.This is action packed and a very good read.
