From the New York Times bestselling authors of Stuck-Up Suit and Cocky Bastard, comes a sexy new standalone novel.

Money or love? Which would you choose?

You probably just answered the question in your head thinking it's an easy decision. For me, it's not. Did I mention it's a lot of money? A hell of a lot. I needed to go far away to think it through.

As I embarked on an impulsive trip, I hit a detour when I met sexy Carter in the airport lounge. We struck up a heated conversation. Then, he left. I thought I’d never see him again. But fate had other plans.

Surprise! He was the pilot of my flight. But the bigger surprise was the adventure that followed after the plane landed.

Even though our connection was magnetic, I knew it was only temporary. He would give me tickets, and I would follow him around the world to exotic places.

I was addicted. Nothing else mattered anymore. And I was going to get hurt. Because a part of me wanted to be the one to finally ground the playboy pilot. At the very least, he was taking me on a thrilling ride.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn't see coming.

This series just keeps getting better once again this book had me hooked from page one and I really hope there is more to come from Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland as a duo. Playboy Pilot takes us around the world visiting exotic romantic places. It's an emotional journey of two people who are trying to work out what they want to do with their life's . Carter is what most of us imagine pilots to be a different stewardess in every city around the world but a chance meeting in a airport bar with Kendall changed his views on that. Kendall is trying to work out what she will do for money does she do what was stipulated in her grandfathers will or does she live her life and hopefully find true love. Will they work it out or will the past destroy them ..... I could not put this book down and was up half the night hoping Carter and Kendall got their HEA, the relationship felt so real and I really didn't want the book to end, but you knew it was coming to the end when my favourite goat made a fleeting appearance. Fantastic read that made me laugh, swoon and cry. The sex was hot and the banter was funny I was given this book for an honest review

fanfreakintastic. You will fall in love with Carter. Yes he is a manwhore. Sleeping with all his stewardesses without giving it a single thought, Well that was before Kendall. Since the day he met her in the airport bar he was a changed man. like so many other stories he was a better man blah blah blah, But Carter went beyond better. Without giving away anything from the book Carter was a man you definitely want for yourself. He was the epitome of the perfect guy in my eyes. KENDALL was brought up around money. Now she has a tough decision to make. Meeting Carter teaches her that money isn't everything. But can she give it all up for love? And can a playboy pilot change his wings?

Loved this Book! What lengths will a gal go to to claim a rightful inheritance? What lengths will a guy go to to rid the guilt (unwarranted) of a lost first love? If the questions sound interesting then by all means read this book to find the funny, kooky and sad answers in a riveting story about Kendall (Perky) and Carter (Trip) and their excellent supporting cast... I read a lot of books and this is one I could not put down... Such an interesting and different storyline with some pretty unusual characters... And OH, that secy and devilish Carter... Seemed like I was laughing or crying all the way through...

Once again, this dynamic duo of authors has produced another intriguing, beautiful and sexy story! I was immediately swept up in the intrigue of Carter and Kendall's secrets, and captivated by the chemistry and intensity of their instant connection. Their journey together was unpredictable with many high and lows. These two don't do anything the easy way. There is plenty of turbulence and detours along the way to keep you equal parts anxious and entertained. Whether Vi & Penelope write alone or together, I'm constantly amazed and amused by the fresh ideas, intriguing characters and witty dialogue they produce. Another solid example of why these authors are on my one click list.

Just one word: AMAZING! Kendall Sparks needs to make a decision that will forever change her life. Needing some time away to think, she decides to travel. A chance encounter brings Captain Carter Clynes into her life. Together, Kendall and Carter travel the world and have an amazing time. But will their hearts stay unscathed after they go their own ways? Or will this be a journey that will forever change them? I loved Playboy Pilot! The story sucked me from the first page and I couldn't stop reading! (Thank God for night shifts!) There's a lot of laughter, sweet moments, steamy scenes, secrets, and a twist that kept me on edge. I loved the chemistry and the banter between Carter and Kendall. I also loved that the book has a dual POV and the little scene with Chance! Kendall Sparks has an important decision to make that, no matter what, will change her life forever. She is torn and confused, but still is a very sassy and confident girl. I loved how much she grew throughout the story. Captain Carter Clynes is a playboy. He is gorgeous, confident, and a charmer. He had lots of affairs in the past and uses his job to avoid relationships. Deep down he is very sweet, kind, gentle, and very noble. I loved his story and how much he changed during the story. Once again, the amazing duo of Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland gives us a phenomenal book with a captivating story and awesome characters. You'll laugh and cry with Kendall and Carter. Join their amazing journey. You'll love every minute!

One playboy flyguy and one girl on a mission to escape for a little while. Carter…tall, dark & handsome…big hazel eyes…and a dimple on his chin….this dimple will make you melt and he is cocky as hell. The man under the pilot suit is so much more than what you see. You will fall so very hard for Carter Clynes. I know I did. Kendall is a girl with a decision, a rough decision that greatly affects her future. She needs an escape to think. A chance encounter with a hot man in a airport bar sends her in a tailspin of epic braless proportions. It is flirty -> “I took a moment to admire that sculpted back, realizing how much I wanted to lie on top of it like a carnival ride as it moved up and down.”

4.5 “Don’t leave me, Perky.” Stars! I’ve already put this one in my reread pile! The Review: You just know when Penelope and Vi come together to write a book, you can expect magic to happen. Beautiful, fun, intelligent magic and this book is just one more win in the “those two are epically amazing!” column. Told in dual POV’s, Playboy Pilot was sweet and sexy, delightfully funny and just an all around entertaining read. Throwing in a little bit of angsts and you get a perfect book to spend the afternoon with. Story/Characters... Kendall Sparks has a huge, life altering decision to make. Deciding to travel to a destination unknown for some much needed time away to think, she ponders over a travel guide in the airport lounge, never expecting her answer to appear in the form of a drop dead gorgeous, dirty talking stranger. Captain Carter Clynes is a free bird. He pilots the friendly skies, running from a past that he refuses to confront. He’s a playboy of epic proportion and has no desire to settle down, but the moment he spots Kendall in that airport lounge, something inside him clicks into place and things start to change. Quickly. These two were amazing together. They were fun, honest, open and caring. From the jump, they are totally in sync with one another and Kendall, taking a chance on this new acquaintance, finds an inner strength she didn't know she had. Carter finds an inner peace he didn't know he needed. On a whirlwind trip from Rio to Dubai to Amsterdam to Florida, their connection was quick and cute, but they also had some serious get-to-know-you moments. In those few short days, they had adventure and started building a solid relationship. They were so adorable together and Carter... wow, he was fantastic. Charming, sweet, enigmatic, whimsical and totally unforgettable! I loved him so much. And seriously, that man had the patience of a saint. He knew he had something unique and special with Kendall and he was willing to take his time and savor every part of it. The climax was emotional and angsty, just the way I like it. I did think Kendall acted irrationally and childish. For a short time, I totally disconnected with her character because she too, had something special standing by her side and she didn’t appreciate it. Carter’s willingness to accept her, was challenged in her own self when the tables were turned, and I didn’t like how she handled it. But I LOVED the ending. That ending was ... PERFECT! The Wrap Up: I’ve absolutely loved the books these two authors come together to give us, and this book is another to add to that amazing list of outstanding storytelling and lovable characters. And really, you have to love a book where you’re sure to get an appearance from our favorite Aussie and his adorable Mutton.

4.25 stars-- PLAYBOY PILOT is the latest stand alone, contemporary adult romance story line co-authored by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward. This is airline pilot Carter Clynes, and heiress Kendall Sparks’s story line Told from dual first person points of view (Carter and Kendall) PLAYBOY PILOT follows Kendall Sparks as she is about to make a life-altering decision and needs a few days away before taking the final step. Enter Carter Clynes, airline pilot and manwhore extraordinaire who sweeps our heroine into an adventure around the world beginning in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil that will culminate in heartbreak, misunderstanding, romance and love. Carter Clynes has a reputation within the airline industry and he has earned his reputation both in and out of the bedroom. He likes to sing Beatles songs, and references many a line in his growing love for our story line heroine. Meeting Kendall Sparks throws all of Carter’s playboy ways into the wind as he endeavors to clean up his image-an image that has been fueled by too many encounters with co-workers and friends But there is a softer side to our story line hero, a side he keeps hidden for the people back home. Kendall is a woman whose future will be dependent upon the choices she makes, and whether or not she will fall in love, and Carter is the man who calls to her heart. The relationship between Carter and Kendall is one of immediate attraction as our airline pilot pushes Kendall to step outside of her comfort zone and take a ‘literal’ leap into the unknown. There is plenty of back and forth sexual banter. When Carter’s past comes back with news of a different kind, our heroine walks away breaking the heart of the man with whom she has fallen in love. The $ex scenes are seductive and provocative. There are a large number of secondary and supporting characters including the people who live in Carter’s condo village, several of Carter’s co-workers and airline service personnel, as well as a bevy of Carter’s prior one-night stands who seem to come out of the wood work the more our heroine falls in love with her man. We are also introduced to Carter’s friend Gordon, and Kendall’s mother who pushes her daughter in more ways than one. PLAYBOY PILOT is a sweet and sexy story with plenty of humor and fun; romance and love; heartbreak and perceived betrayal. The premise is lighthearted but intense; the characters are passionate and energetic; the romance is breathtaking and exquisite. PLAYBOY PILOT is journey towards love and a happily ever after.

Absolutely amazing. A-MA-ZING. They did it again! Another phenomenal story from Vi and Penelope. As usual, the dialogue was believable, the characters realistic and the love was intense. This one had a huge “HOLY COW!!!!!” moment for me. I thought I knew where the story was going, but it turns out that I had NO IDEA. It was awesome!!! I couldn’t out this book down. Things just kept coming up that I HAD to know how they got resolved, and it was just a quirky, steamy, emotional ride that left me with a smile. Thank you, ladies, and I can’t wait to see what you come up with next!!! ***I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***
