Flight Risk

( 8 )

Overview

Gio twisted his shoulders, jerking himself upright, and hooked a foot around the door frame. One last try. There had to be a way out. "Sergeant," he shouted. "Stay strong. Don't give up."

Don't give up. God, help me. God. He would answer. Somewhere there was a purpose in this. But his doubts rose higher each time Sergeant screamed his name.

    This book was not at all what I expected!  A hot air balloon, love at first fight (no, that is not a typo), I expected a comfortable easy read.  But throw in some action and suspense and I was done for!  Giovanni is every woman's dream.  Sergeant is a smart, capable woman.  When they start this flight, both are annoyed and take it out on each other.  Everything that happens after that keeps you hooked and reading further.  Although a Christian read, it is not preachy in any way at all.  Although Giovanni and Sergeant are the main characters- most of the other characters in this story have something to say- Uncle Vinnie, Maurice, Bruno.  This book will keep you on the edge of your seat for sure.  Highly recommended for an entertaining read!  I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my review.

    Giovanni and Sergeant ¿ Giovanni doesn¿t want to be taking anyon

    Giovanni and Sergeant – Giovanni doesn’t want to be taking anyone on a hot air balloon ride, but can’t say no to Uncle Vinnie. Sergeant wants to share the ride with her boyfriend Dale, who stands her up.
    Our main characters can’t seem to agree on anything to the point of not enjoying the view, or even seeing it for that matter. The beautiful day turns stormy and things go downhill from there in terms of what they encounter, but in it all realize they love each other. They crash the balloon and encounter gun runners, at one point Sergeant believes that Giovanni has been killed. Before this time he has spoken of his faith enough, and it has been backed up by his actions so that it affects Sergeant’s actions.
    In her author’s notes the author acknowledges that the story is slightly “far fetched”, but as she also says, it is fiction, and fun and exciting fiction at that. I received the copy I read from the author for review and am very glad I did. I really enjoyed the book and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys clean romantic suspense.

    I Also Recommend:

    Giovanni grew up helping his uncle Vinnie with his hot air ballo

    Giovanni grew up helping his uncle Vinnie with his hot air balloon business. There’s tension between them because he doesn’t want to take over the business, but when his uncle calls and asks him to make a special flight, his loyalty to family won’t let him say no. His uncle thinks the flight is for an army officer, but as it turns out, Sergeant is a girl with an unusual name. She’s a strong woman that knows about guns and self-defense—not exactly his dream girl.
    Foul weather comes up when it is too late to turn back, and the two of them crash into the mountains. In seeking shelter, they find a cabin stocked with rifles. And then they meet the men who are dealing in illegal arms trades to overthrow the government.
    “Flight Risk” by Suzanne D. Williams is a well-written, enjoyable story with strong characters in a situation that calls for everything they have. But it’s more than just a typical romance because in this story it is the male hero that controls his urges and says no. It was refreshing to meet a hero that respects women and marriage.
    The book was also refreshing in the way it handled the physical scenes. At one point, Maxwell, the bad guy, intends to rape Sergeant and then kill her. The scene is action packed, full of fear and other emotions, yet it never gets beyond a blouse button. There’s no foul language. Even the act is referred to by a gentle term. It gets violent, but it doesn’t get gory. It gets hot, but not immoral.
    Any lover of sweet romantic suspense will love this story. It could also be suited for a very mature teen. It is Christian, but not preachy or moralistic. It’s about prayer and how it can be answered in unusual ways. I greatly enjoyed reading it, and look forward to the author’s next adventure.

    This is the second book I've read by this author, and I thoroughly enjoyed each one. Flight Risk, is different from anything I've ever read before. One thing that struck me was how realistic it was. How the man was a man. What I mean by that is, the hunky Italian hero noticed the sway of the heroine’s hips, and his eyes trailed over her figure, and his thoughts traveled to places he had to rein in because of his strong beliefs.

    I found it very refreshing how the hero and heroine's relationship started, so unlike the majority of inspirational romances. Won’t spoil it for you by explaining what I mean. You’ll have to buy the book to find out.

    I will say, if you like strong, realistic romance (not talking about sex, only thoughts of it), suspense, mystery, intrigue, and laughter, Flight Risk, has it all.

    Quick read, fast paced both in love and action, a nice escape from reality. Beautiful setting, beautiful couple and wonderful to see the high morals of Gio, as well as the head strong Sergeant. Too often the women are whimpy and whiny...NOT in this story.

    Pick it up and enjoy a wonderful mini vacation today!!

    I was given this book by the author in exchange for my honest opinion.

    Flight Risk by Suzanne D. Williams is a very good romance story

    Flight Risk by Suzanne D. Williams is a very good romance story filled with lots of nail biting suspense. Giovanni Cavatelli could not refuse his uncle Vinnie when he asked him to take a couple up for a hot air balloon ride. Only the female half of the couple arrived for the balloon ride and Giovanni immediately disliked her but he decided that he could put up with her for an hour. Because of a storm, the balloon crashed into a densely forested mountain and the one hour trip turned into three days. During the three day ordeal, Giovanni and the beautiful woman with the masculine name of Sergeant realized that they did not really dislike each other as they had on their first meeting. A few hours after crashing they found a shack which contained eight boxes of guns that belonged to an anti-government militant group. When the group returned to the shack and found Giovanni and Sergeant, then the really scary stuff began to happen and continued for most of the book. I don’t want to spoil the ending so you will have to read the book to find out what happens to Gio and Serge and the rest of the characters.




    The author did an excellent job with all elements of the story. The plot was riveting and kept me guessing from page to page and had me almost shaking with fear and very concerned for the safety of Giovanni and Sergeant. When I read a good book, I definitely get involved and it becomes very real to me. All the characters were so well developed that they just seemed to come to life and the action scenes were so real that I felt as if I were right in the middle of the action and needing to hide or try to escape. The dialogue was right on target and sometimes provided me with a few good laughs. I like the way that the author had Giovanni, a Christian, live his life to please God. He was tempted by Sergeant but never gave in to the temptation. God’s love and protection was evident throughout the entire book.




    I highly recommend this book to all who like a great Christian romance with a lot of suspense thrown in the mix for more enjoyment.




    Thank you to the author, Suzanne D. Williams, for providing me with a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

    I read "Flight Risk" yesterday. I was given a copy to read for review and I am so glad! This is pure reading enjoyment. Just the right
    combination of new love, faith, and intrigue. The main characters, Gio & Serge, had sparks flying from the minute they met. Yet Gio was
     able to demonstrate to Serge his deep faith in God and help her to see how God worked in their lives. From the balloon ride to the near
     death experiences, Gio & Serge kept this story moving with the unfolding of their relationship with each other and with God. This story is
     filled with the importance of family loyalty and faith in God. Although Gio & Serge were the main characters in the story, I loved the story
     of Maurice and Bruno; it was totally unexpected yet it fit so well! If you're looking for a fun, entertaining read that keeps you on the edge
    of your seat - this is it!
