DeeJay's rating: 4/5 stars
Steel Wings was a quick, well-written, feisty lil’ read with a bad ass female lead that I liked immediately. Jesse was snarky, flippant, and sure – all wonderful qualities in a woman, right? Dixie, the male lead/love interest, sure seemed to think so. As two pilots (and former lovers) who are forced to work together after many years apart, they find that the chemistry they had before has all but vanished. I liked them together and really wanted to read more about them.
I wanted to know more about Dixie. It almost seemed like he was just this hot guy that Jesse fell in love with a long time ago, and though she thought he was special, I wasn’t sure if I was supposed to or not. Yes, he was strong, dominant, and sexy, but does that make him special?
I wished we had learned more about Jesse’s past. Events are mentioned and the results are told, but details would have been nice. However, this was not supposed to be some full-length saga, so although I wanted more, I’m pretty satisfied with what I got. Overall, I liked this book, and though it took me like two days to read it, I probably could have done it in one. I’ll definitely be reading more from this author.
