Overview

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.

The bigger surprise was the adventure that followed after the plane landed.

Carter was dangerous and always on the move.

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.

A bevy of flight attendant exes and rumors about Carter's reputation were never far behind.

I didn't know what to believe.

But 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.

As always I absolutely loved any book these two wonderful authors write. I promise you will laugh and cry over Kendall and Carter's love story!! A Must Read!!

A sexy laugh out loud crazy fun read. This book had me in a laughing fit. I was laughing out so loud, I kept getting weird looks from people around me. Then it made me cried a bit too. This is also a heartbreaking yet heartwarming emotional story, with a lot of angst and steamy erotic scenes. Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward did a marvelous job in presenting Carter as a fun loving playboy who was broken because of a tragedy in his past and Kendall who were somewhat broken. She had some hard decisions to make, that would determined the direction her life would take. If you love books about broken girl and broken manwhore, then I would highly recommend this as a must-read.

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

Another great read from Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland! Carter and Kendall have a great adventure and love wins in the end.

I loved Carter and Kendall’s story and I could not put this book down. I think it worked so well because of where both of the characters were in their lives. It was believable and not the usual “let me drop my whole life home to follow you around the world”. Triple C is one of my favorite male characters and some of my favorite scenes were of him and his neighbors. He’s got it all- charm, romance, sex appeal and a heart of gold.

3.5 stars Playboy Pilot was an entertaining and steamy read. There were plenty of laughs (ahem, stolen pilot uniforms) and fantastic chemistry between Carter and Kendall, but I had a hard time really connecting to them. Granted, I'm not an overall fan of the manwhore reformed trope and Carter certainly lived up to the title, but I actually grew to like him much more than Kendall. I definitely enjoyed his sweeter side, but his arrogance and cocky attitude were just as hot. Kendall on the other hand just really confused me. I understand that she was at a crossroads in her life, but she just struck me as really immature and way too trusting. I'm all for living in the moment, but come on! I think the practical side of me couldn't get past that, even though the overall story was enjoyable. The drama and angst was predictable, but it still hurt my heart. I just wish that these two would have communicated with each other, instead of thinking the worst and making huge decisions based off these assumptions. I do recognize though that this gave both our characters time to re-evaluate their lives and feelings and to be honest with themselves. Overall, this was a fun and steamy read, but just wasn't one of my favorites by this amazing writing duo.

An enjoyable romp through the world of a sexy pilot and a girl he meets in the airport. Both seem to be searching for something in life, but what, they're not sure. Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward have done it again with their collaboration on Playboy Pilot. Having enjoyed Stuck Up Suit, I knew this newest collaboration was a sure thing.

Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland have collaborated once again on an engaging adult contemporary romance. Playboy Pilot was heavy on the fun banter and slow-but-sure sexy moments while incorporating a surprising amount of emotion that kept me invested. I enjoyed the addition of delicate elements such as caring for the aging, coping with mental illness/suicide, cultural sensitivities, giving back, and taking risks...even if that means making the unpopular choice. The relationship stress/climax was completely unnecessary though - so unnecessary that it caused me to feel all of the dramatics leading up to the resolution were a waste of time and book space. Regardless, I liked Playboy Pilot overall and I would recommend it to readers who enjoy either of these authors. The two of them really do write well together. Playboy Pilot will take you all around the globe physically and emotionally, and will give you new meaning for the term "friendly skies". Check it out! My favorite quote: "If you want to change the world or make a difference, you don't have to travel very far. Just look in your own backyard for the people who need you."

I am giving Playboy Pilot by Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland five perky stars. Told in dual POV's, this book is chocked full of fun, laughter, romance, sex and just the right amount of angst. Kendall Sparks has a huge life changing decision to make and needs to find a getaway spot to try to figure out what to do. While at the airport trying to decide where to go, she meets Captain Carter Clynes, also known as Trip, a handsome, sexy, flirtatious pilot. The two hit if off from the very beginning, but it doesn't take long before Kendall realizes there is so much more to Carter than meets the eye. Yes, he is a manwhore, yes he loves Beatles music, but what he does on his time off? Priceless. (You will have to read it to find out.) At one point in this book I did not like Kendall very much, she didn't give Carter the benefit of the doubt when he needed her too, but by the end she redeemed herself in Carter's eyes so I accepted it too, lol. This book is simply fantastic, I highly recommend it and I doubt that you will be able to put it down until the last page is read!!

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***
