Lynsie Fox has what she considers to be a perfect life. Married to Lincoln, a military pilot, she's living the Army life she's always loved. Being a sucker for great love stories, Lynsie makes it her mission to find Lincoln's best friend and co-pilot, Dax Adams, a good woman.

Losing the one woman he's ever loved, Dax attempts to be a good sport by playing along in Lynsie's match-making scheme. However, Dax is certain he will never get the woman of his dreams. But life doesn't always fly smoothly.

When turbulence strikes, Lynsie watches her world crash and burn around her, leaving her empty with broken wings. Despite her grief, can she mend the pieces back together and learn to fly again?

We all have that special set of authors. They are not many. They that special few. You probably count them on one hand. You own everything they write. You feel the rest of the world needs to read everything they write because they are that great. Erika is one of those authors for me. I have been with her since she started her journey writing. I fell in love with her from her first book, Moving Forward. I have seen her change, grow and develop as author and it has been wonderful thing to witness. I was also lucky enough to become friends with her which just makes her accomplishments mean that much more.

She completely out did herself with Broken Wings. Lynsie, Lincoln and Dax’s story is far from easy. It will literally break your heart then piece it back together again.

I am going to try and start from the beginning but I still kinda loopy from being sick so bear with me. I read a lot books…I am a blogger. Since I read a lot of books…you can start to see where the story is gonna go from the first few chapters but its the good writers that even if your mind knows what may or may not happen, you heart is still broken when it finally occurs. That is what Erika did to me. I had an idea from the beginning what was gonna happen but when it did….I sobbed. Mind you…I am sick as a dog so sobbing while already congested was not fun 🙁 but I just could not stop the tears.

This story was beautifully written and showed the true evolution of life and relationships. It proved that you CANNOT CONTROL EVERYTHING and life just happens sometimes. And it sucks. And it will break your heart but it will also make you stronger. Better. Show you who are the people that really matter in your life. I think this probably hit me the hardest because I have been there. I had life beat the s!@t out of me almost 4 years ago. I thought I would never find the light at the end of the tunnel but I did and I am better for it. It changed me and made me better, sadly that is all the we can really ask for when something bad happens to you. You can’t change what is…you can only hope you end up better for it.

You are going to love all the characters in this book. Main and secondary. They all bring something to the story that is invaluable. They all play a part. Dax and Lincoln are both swoon worthy ***fans self*** while Lynsie is character you can help but fall in love with. I loved all the aviation stuff. Who knew I had thing for planes when I hate flying but the way she wrote almost made me want to learn to fly. I really hope we get to explore the storylines of the secondary characters she introduced. I want more from Peterson, Megan, Dustin and Echo.

Erika brings together sweet, sexy, funny and sad moments to weave this beautiful story. That is her talent and the reason I read anything she writes. Another must read from Erika.

Book Excerpt

We waste no time stripping each other down once we make it back home.

“You know what I love most?” Lincoln asks as his tongue dances across my bare stomach.

“Hmm,” is all I can manage as I lift my back, pressing myself closer to his mouth of goodness.

“The way you taste.” He licks circles around my navel, teasing my body in a way only he knows best. “The way you taste, baby, it puts every rainbow to shame.”

“Taste the rainbow,” I moan as his mouth continues its path down my waist.

“I plan on licking my way to your pot of the gold.” His hot breath against my inner thigh shoots a jolt of electricity through my body.

I giggle and moan all at once. “All yours, baby,” I gasp as I turn to putty beneath him.

“Say it again,” he demands as he nips and licks, teasing my skin.

“I’m yours. Only yours. Always yours,” I manage to pant before he swipes his tongue right where I want him most. My hands are firm against his head pulling at his short locks, holding him in place as he licks and fingers me until I come undone around his mouth.

He kisses his way back up my body and slides between my legs. I feel him at my entrance, but he stays put until he’s face to face with me. Grabbing me by my chin, he tilts my face up to look him square in the eyes.

“And I am yours. Only yours. I will always be yours,” he breathes against my lips before claiming them. His lips against mine are firm, needy, and full of passion as he pushes himself inside me.

I moan into his mouth as our tongues battle for control. He’ll win. He always does, but in cases such as this, I gladly accept defeat.
