3.5 out of 5 Licks
When desire goes sky high, things get hot. Really hot.
Outback Skies, Book 1
The middle of the Outback seems the perfect place for city-bred Dr. Matt Corvin to recover from the beating life has given him. Working in Wallaby Ridge as a member of the Royal Flying Doctors is just what this doctor needs, until he finds himself paired with a pilot who’s every sexual fantasy that’s ever done barrel rolls through his head. She rekindles in him a desire for something he thought he’d never want again—connection.
Natacha Freeman was one medical exam away from RAAF fighter pilot status when her lungs royally screwed her over. Flying a medical plane in the Outback should have provided isolation to match her desolation. Instead, she’s stuck in a tiny plane with a nice guy who sends her hormones screaming full throttle.
Though Tash is jumping on the brakes with both feet, Matt’s not above using his thorough knowledge of the human body to change her mind. Until the dangerous reality of living in the Outback brings them crashing to the ground.
Warning: If gorgeous sexy doctors with incredible bedside manner and a dominating sexual side make you shudder with sheer orgasmic rapture, this book may be…wait for it…just what the doctor ordered.
Let’s start with the fact that there is a very brief appearance by a character named Kitty. Now I have no idea if this Kitty is meant to be for me, but I always like to think it is. lol Ok back to the book. Matt is a side character from Lexxie’s very popular Heart of Fame series. You don’t need to read the book he is a part of to enjoy this story though, I haven’t read it yet and I still enjoyed it. It always makes me happy to see residual characters get their stories told so I’m glad Matt found his happiness. Tash quite literally has some heart stopping moments in this novella, but thanks to Matt she comes through relatively unscathed. Her heart is a bit of a different story but Matt is willing to help her put that back together too. Since this is a novella there isn’t a lot of time for a lot of character development or back story, but Lexxie manages to tell us enough for me to route for the characters which is always important. The sex between them is hot and takes place outside in the middle of nowhere, but someone still manages to show up and eventually end the fun. All in all this is a cute, quick read that will leave you breathless and waiting for the next book in this series. I can’t wait to see where we go next!
