Title: On Broken Wings
Series: Wild Aces #3
Author: Chanel Cleeton
Release date: January 3, 2017
SynopsisA year after losing her husband, Joker, the squadron commander of the Wild Aces, Dani Peterson gets an offer from his best friend, Alex “Easy” Rogers, to help fix up her house. Dani accepts, and their friendship grows—along with an undeniable attraction.
Racked by guilt for loving his best friend’s widow, Easy’s caught between what he wants and can’t have. Until one night everything changes, and the woman who’s always held his heart ends up in his arms. Yet as Easy leaves for his next deployment, he and Dani are torn between their feelings and their loyalty to Joker’s memory.
But when Dani discovers something that sends them both into a spin, the conflicted lovers must overcome the past to navigate a future together…
On Broken Wings is the sweetest ending to the Wild Aces series. We have Easy and Dani as main characters and we have been knowing them so much more throughout every single book since the start. We knew Dani lost her husband, Joker, in book #1 and we have watched her grow and a year after the death of her husband is where On Broken Wings start.
In the other hand, Easy has been in love with Dani since the first moment he saw her. Meaning he has been in love with his captain's wife since the very beginning. He has kept it a secret, of course. He has mourned Joker, he has tried to keep his feelings away when it comes to Dani, time and time again. Though they have become best friends through time.
Definitely On Broken Wings was one of my most anticipated romance books to come out! Easy and Dani's story has been building up since book #1 and it has been bittersweet and painful but this book is surely a perfect way to the end this lovely series I will miss so much.
Though the trope is one I don't enjoy a lot, I truly enjoyed these two characters and how the story developed. Easy really loves Dani, like there is no confusion or anything, you know from the start Easy loves Dani completely, fully, with out any boundaries. Easy is so cute and he blushes so easily when it comes to Dani. She doesn't realize at first so they do all of these things like cuddling together and holding hands (to be honest, they are so frigging cute when they do that). They are there to support each other 1000% that's the truth.
It was also really great to see our fave couples/characters from past books again. Jordan, Noah, Thor and Becca are all there and cuter than ever. They show you what their lives are like since their book and it's so good and nostalgic and will make you want to reread their books again, I assure you this lol. Can't wait for more Chanel Cleeton books to come out! I'm here for the long haul.
