Jake Williams has been undercover as a captain at Great Britain Air for months and he’s beyond frustrated. Tasked with finding the airline insiders who are smuggling chemical weapons into the country, he’s getting nowhere fast.
Bree Phillips has spent her whole life wanting to travel and experience life outside of the small village she grew up in, but her family needed her. Now, years later than planned, she is finally joining her best friend to work for Great Britain Air, and her adventure is beginning.
Jake knows he is better off alone, it keeps him sharp and focused, but despite his efforts to keep Bree at a distance, she is drawn further and further into his world. Both have to ask themselves whether some risks are worth taking.
What I Thought:
In these challenging times, I’m always on the look out for a bit of romance from my fiction, but why not take things up a level by adding a healthy does of thriller into the mix? Point of No Return does exactly this, and delivers a solid adventure plot alongside a touching and sexy romance.
Although this is the second book in Tanya Jean Russell’s Cabin Crew series, there’s no need to read the books in order, as they cover different main characters who all fly for a living. The twist with this story, though, is that Jake Williams is working undercover as a pilot, trying to uncover a smuggling scheme – with all the thrills and danger that that entails.
Bree Phillips is a great main character. Although she finds herself in the middle of something dangerous, she’s not willing to let her colleague – or dare I say more than a colleague – go it alone. She’s canny and thinks on her feet and also has a heart of gold to steer her in the right direction.
The book is paced really well, with a slow build up through the developing relationship between Jake and Bree, but when the action kicks in, it races through their adventures with several more twists. I’d actually be interested to read more about this couple, as they are such likeable characters, but I’m not sure how you would plot it – Tanya Jean Russell, over to you!
