He’ll break all the rules to keep the last promise to his best friend.
Commander Ryan Tyler is a true American hero—a former Navy SEAL and the man who saved the International Space Station. Yet he couldn’t save the best friend who died in his place. Fallout from that tragic accident thrust Ty into a dark and dangerous lifestyle, but when he’s given the unexpected chance to fly again, he grabs it.
Gray Barrett never imagined that her dream job as a flight psychologist would depend upon keeping an astronaut-gone-wild on the straight and narrow. Yet here she is, babysitting the gorgeous and insufferably cocky Ryan Tyler. Everything hangs on his ability to maintain a new image for the public eye to make up for past sins. But as they spend time together, she’s drawn to the shattered man who refuses to let anyone through the impenetrable façade he’s built around himself.
Their goals are firmly in place and almost within grasp. The only thing that could screw it up is falling in love.

I was hooked once I started reading this book. The way the scientific and medical knowledge was weaved into the story enhanced the reading. I can't wait for part 2!!
Let me first say that this is a very good book. That said, the book ends in a cliffhanger!!! I was not a happy camper, If I had known that, I would never have read it. Also, I was hesitant to read it since it’s classified as a New Adult and I don’t read NA. Well, it’s not a NA. But as I said before, aside from that it’s very good. The story centers around astronaut and former Navy SEAL, Commander Ryan Tyler and Gray Bennett, a flight psychologist works in her PhD and the daughter of the man funding the outer space venue. Ryan is filled with guilt after his last flight. He has been getting drunk, become a womanizer etc. He has been assigned to Gray so she can be his “sitter” and clean up his image. I loved these two. While the plot was engaging, heartbreaking and at times heartwarming, the characters were complex . It was interesting to get an inside view of the space program and the individuals involved in it. It’s also a story about guilt, trying to live up to an image, self-doubt, trust, feelings and hope. Will I check out book 2? Probably but still feel readers should be warned that it’s a cliffhanger. I was entrusted a copy of this book by Netgalley. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
