MATTEO MORGAN CALL SIGN: SOLO
Reckless, arrogant, and bold, Solo is as known in the U.S. Navy for his bad-boy reputation as he is for his skills as a fighter pilot. It’s a surprise to his peers, then, when he’s chosen to train and compete at the most prestigious naval aviation academy in the world.
MISSION RULES: 1. Kick everyone’s ass. 2. Do whatever it takes to win. 3. Do your best to distract the competition. 4. Especially when that competition is a gorgeous blue-eyed perfectionist who makes your blood run hot.

GRANT HUGHES CALL SIGN: PANTHER
Disciplined, smart, and confident, Panther can’t afford not to play by the rules. As the son of a top Navy commander, all eyes are on him, and being anything less than number one is unacceptable.
MISSION RULES: 1. Keep it safe in the air. 2. Prove you’re more than Commander Hughes’s son. 3. No distractions. Stay focused. 4. Don’t fall for your competition—especially not the rebellious heartbreaker with lips made for sinning.
In the heat of the hot California sun, tempers flare and desires ignite as Solo and Panther try to resist their attraction while fighting to be number one. With passion this intense, the question remains: Who’s gonna come out on top?
“I got here through hard work and determination. I’ve had to prove myself ten times over to both my instructors and father to earn the right to say I belong here. And now I’m stuck babysitting some reckless, immature little boy who can’t prove himself unless he’s talking about his cock or how big it is. Do you know how unappealing that is?”
I love diving into a Brooke & Ella book. These two are among my favorite authors ever. They’ve written some of my favorite books, they’ve introduced me to a genre I don’t think I would have tried otherwise, and they are just all around great people.
I do like a good novella series, and this is that to me, especially when it follows one couple. I don’t read a lot of military books. It’s not something I avoid, but it’s also not something I seek out. I think by themselves I would have liked each of these guys. I’m just not convinced yet that they are good together. It may be the insta-love aspect of the story, I don’t typically ever like them. It would take A LOT of chemistry to get me behind a insta-love couple. I’m still interested in seeing where this series goes. It has not lost me yet, but I’m on the fence after book 1. I don’t like to be with these two authors, but it is what it is.
If you like military, and don’t mind reading M/M books, then grab this and give it a go.
