Blog Tour, Review, and Giveaway: Fly by TA Foster

Fly by T.A. Foster
Release Date August 28, 2014

Not everyone’s good at one-night stands.
Skye Stephens has the worst day of her professional career, and all she wants to do is shed her power suit and get lost in the sheets with the hot guy she met at the bar. The problem is, this uptight ad exec doesn’t know how to do one-night stands. She has strict rules about dating and when to let a man in her bedroom.
Fighter pilot Ben “Bolt” Hardcastle is used to lovin’ and leavin’. But, after he meets Skye, one night doesn’t seem to be enough.
When these two crash-land into each other, a connection strng enough to make the loner pilot and the sexy businesswoman shed their rules about love and relationships begins to burn deeper than either of them ever expected.

 "This girl was going to kill him, tame him or worse, both."

Ben "Bolt" Hardcastle was a Marine pilot who flew his plane hard and played his woman harder.  Travelling around the world on missions with his buddies, Hollywood, Eagle and Ranger; he was living his life as he always wanted.  Skye Stephens was as straight laced as they come; a hard-working advertising executive who had little time for fun and even less time for men.  A purely accidental meeting between these two polar opposites at a bar one night; leads to Skye inviting Ben to do one thing that was so unlike her; have a one night stand.  And it's once they are back at her apartment where the story begins to unravel.  I loved this book and gave it 3.5 stars. Anyone who love a good old fashion girl tames wild boy story with a hint of marine in there needs to add this book to their TBR list asap!

Lacking the protection necessary to actually have a one night stand, Skye and Ben do everything but and wake up to an extremely awkward morning after; with Skye practically pushing Ben out the door.  Ben is baffled since he is normally the one leaving the woman behind knowing he will never see him again but there is something different about Skye, she gets into his head.  I think it was fate that he left his dogtags at her house, forcing him to see her again and actually agree to her dating for 30 days before sleeping together rule.  Ben doesn't know how to be a boyfriend and Skye isn't always the best at letting her hair down and having fun, but together they are the perfect compliment to each other.

"Because if I can do this now, imagine what we'll feel like together."

Skye begins to let down her defenses and starts to fall for Ben, often questioning the validity of her 30 day rule.  She even opens up to Ben about her mother and the mental issues that she struggles with.  The caring way that Ben volunteers to spend time with her mom while she is at work when most guys walk away after knowing only makes her open up her heart more to him.  It's after they finally make smoking hot love to each other when the other shoe drops.  Ben has to deploy to Asia for 6 months; making Skye think that this relationship really was nothing more then sex to him.  He fights to get her back and prove that he cares about her like he has never cared about a woman before and she decides to wait for him to come home, even after he told her that he couldn't ask her to do that.  I actually swooned during that scene it was so completely romantic.

Although Skye worries about him flying, worries about him being faithful to her and worries if this is too much too fast; she loves Ben with all her heart.  And when she gets the call that he gets two weeks leave and they can vacation anywhere she wants to go, she is absolutely elated to spend that time with him.  The happily ever after was another completely romantically comical scene and fit this couple perfectly.
