Review: If We Fly (What If Duet #2) by Nina Lane

My Thoughts…

I was very excited to read the finally of the What If duet in If We Fly.  Nina Lane is a seasoned author but this is the first series I’ve read from her and she got me.  She got me good! I loved this series! It was suspenseful and had me pulled in from chapter one! This was a great duet and one I would highly recommend.  This is definitely a duet that you can start on Friday evening and have both books devoured by Sunday.  Once you start reading, you won’t be able to put them down!

In If We Fly, we pick up right where If We Fall ends. Being this is a spoiler free review, I don’t want to spoil the story for you so I won’t go into specific details.  But I did want to give you a recap.  The duet goes between the present and the past.  Josie and Cole have a long history. In the present, Josie deals with PTSD. A traumatic event haunts her nightmares and changed her life forever. She was an inspiring artist and now her art is dark and troubling. She used to paint whimsical things but that all changed with this event.  In the past her and Cole were on a road to forever happiness. She were blissfully in love. In the present, they haven’t spoken in ten years and when Josie sees Cole, he’s a shadow of the man he used to be. So many hopes and dreams lost and now he’s someone she doesn’t recognize.

In the present, Josie doesn’t remember what happened that unfortunate night. Her brain has shut off the events. Seeing Cole and being back in her home town, it’s like the past is trying to tell her something.  Can she get back what she has lost?  When the pieces of the puzzle start to click in place she will get the answers she needs.  The suspense factor is off the charts and as things fell into place, I was rooting for Josie and Cole to find their way again.  Has to much time past? Can you rebuild what was lost? You will have to read the duet to find out!!  This is a series I would highly recommend!

Excerpt

While I’ll take Josie wherever I can get her, I’d rather be with her at the cottage than anywhere else. Reminds me of our cramped apartment where we were always bumping into each other and never had enough room.

As both a girl and an artist, Josie came with stuff. Hair bands. Fuzzy socks. Premium pastels. A thousand tubes of lip balm. I loved her stuff because I loved her. But I’d also been baffled by her inability to hang up a sweatshirt.

Her cottage isn’t any neater, which is just one reason I like it there. She doesn’t answer my knock. I unlock the door and let myself in.

She’s sprawled on the bed in the sunroom, her body moving with quick, shallow breaths indicating a restless sleep. One shapely legs rests over a pillow, and her T-shirt is pulled up far enough to reveal the curve of her ass encased in panties printed with purple butterflies.

Much as I love the sight of her, I dislike like her insomnia, the way she sleeps in fits and starts. Though I haven’t seen evidence of a nightmare, that doesn’t mean she’s not still having them. And going back to the accident site…

My chest tightens. I sit in a chair by the window and rub a hand over the back of my neck.

Two weeks. That’s it. Then she’s gone. After that…hell, you don’t have to think about after. You just need to make sure the truth stays locked down. That means keeping her away from Peterson and any reminders.

Or taking her away.

A roll of half-opened Lifesavers rests on the windowsill. Peeling it open, I find a red one and stick it in my mouth. Sugar and cherry spill over my tongue.

“You’re going to pay for that.” Her sleep-husky voice draws my attention.

She’s watching me, her arms around a pillow.

“I’ll share.” I push to my feet.

“You’d better.”

After crossing the room in three strides, I sink onto the bed beside her and lower my mouth to hers. Though I had every intention of talking to her first, her kiss fires me with heat. The tension in my chest loosens. I brush her silky hair back from her face and slide my hand over her cheek. Breathe in her strawberry smell. My unease slides away, overpowered by her soft sweetness.

She flicks her tongue into my mouth and over the cherry candy. After passing it to her, I lower her back onto the bed. My dick is already getting hard. I cup her breasts and rub my thumbs over her nipples, urging them to tighten. Josie sighs and shifts, hooking her legs around my thighs and wiggling her hips against me.

“You need to stop wearing jeans when you’re here.” She pushes me away and rises up to unbutton my jeans and shove them off. “Makes it hard for this spontaneous sex thing we’ve got going on.”

“I’m always hard for this spontaneous sex thing.” I shed my clothes before climbing on top of her again. Nuzzling my nose into her neck, I lick the hot hollow of her throat. I fucking love that tender little spot where her pulse beats so fast.

I inch my hand up her shirt, pulling it up far enough to expose her breasts, her pink nipples sticking straight up. The sight of her naked body jerks my cock into full hardness. Josie breathes out a moan and grasps my dick.

“God, Cole.” She shifts, urging me closer and parting her cherry-red lips. “Put it in my mouth.”

“Not this time.” With effort, I detach her hand from me and bend to kiss her breasts, pulling her nipple into my mouth. Her groan of satisfaction fires my lust hotter. I slide my hand between her thigh and into her pussy. Ah, fuck, my girl is already wet and primed, like she’s been waiting for me.

Moving lower on the bed, I push her thighs open. She rises to her elbows, her eyes widening. “Cole…”

When we first got together, it had taken her a long time to let me go down on her. No matter how aroused she was or how careful I was, she’d tense up and get self-conscious about being so exposed. But we’d both persisted, and I’d started with gentle licks of my tongue that soon had her panting and pumping her hips. And when she came…more than once, I’d been unable to hold back and ended up shooting my load all over the bedsheets.

That’s not happening this time.

Start the Duet!

We fell in love. Then our world fell apart.

Then our torturous past encroaches again, trapping us in a violent storm.

But this time, there is no escape.
