    I didn't like this book mainly because I never felt the characters and the heroine was too closed off even till the end and I think talking about the past is necessary for a good marriage. So, the heroine flies, while the hero helps the injured and they met in Iraq when he rescued her. She's been having flashbacks and not telling anybody, he has recently learnt he is a father and he needs to get married to get custody, he thinks of her, since she's his pal and they both feel the same way about ma I didn't like this book mainly because I never felt the characters and the heroine was too closed off even till the end and I think talking about the past is necessary for a good marriage.

So, the heroine has issues with her parents that were never resolved and even got married before but I don't even think the hero knew. Even after they are married it doesn't seem like they are since she is always going off somewhere, then suddenly, bam they sleep together, bam it's forgotten, then the kid comes, suddenly it is HEA, I found it hard to swallow.

Early in this story, two outstanding pilots meet during the Iraq War while flying Search and Rescue to recover wounded troops. Natalia and (Mac) MacAllister experienced trauma in an especially harrowing experience that nearly cost their lives during their last rescue mission. The truth is that reactions to war and individual healing leaves scars that are not immediately recognized upon a return to civilian life. However, a number of years go by and Natalia and Mac team-up, again. This time they work at the local mountain ranges of Spirit Creek by flying to rescue stranded tourists. Natalia knows the small town of Spirit Creek, Arizona, quite well. She and her two best girlfriends grew-up here as teens in high school and have shared histories as they matured. It was no small favor that Mac rescued Natalia and saved her life in a war zone. This gave them a lasting relationship as a flying duo but it had never become romantic. And they know little of one another outside of flying rescues. In fact, each is absorbed in their own agenda. Long term goal for Natalia is buying the Mountain Air Search and Rescue. Mac just learned he has a son in Iraq and needs to be married to adopt and bring him home. Author Linda Style weaves unexpected scenarios into her complicated romance stories that make them absolutely believable. It inspires audiences to continue reading in manageable timelines to reach the psychological and mind-boggling direction toward which love develops and sustains a relationship. As soon as one surprise is revealed, another develops. The plot thickens. Both pilots served in dangerous gun-fire fly zones during the war. How might an incident flying rescue for stranded visitors affect the return of trauma to one of the story’s pilots? Could flying become a danger to all involved? Might close friends recognize PTSD nuances and changes of personality?

Physically mended, Natalia joined the Arizona Mountain Search and Rescue, and when Mac finished his tour in Iraq, he'd joined her. Working together in the high stress situations of SAR, they were more than a team, they were best friends. Out of the blue, Mac announces he has a son and he needs to get married. During his last year in 3 1/2 Stars ~ Natalia and Mac were part of the same Medevac team in Iraq; Natalia the chopper pilot and Mac as a medic. During her last mission, he'd saved her life. Physically mended, Natalia joined the Arizona Mountain Search and Rescue, and when Mac finished his tour in Iraq, he'd joined her. Working together in the high stress situations of SAR, they were more than a team, they were best friends. Out of the blue, Mac announces he has a son and he needs to get married. During his last year in Iraq, he'd had a brief affair with an Iraqi hospital aid and hadn't known he fathered a child. DNA tests are conclusive, and with the mother dead, he needs to take care of his son. An aunt also wants the boy and because of the cultural differences, Mac's lawyer feels Mac would have better chances of getting the boy if he were married. When Mac proposes a temporary marriage, Natalia is torn. She wants to help him, but she's afraid that living more intimately he'll learn her darkest secret. Mac is desperate and Natalia finally agrees. Their sudden elopement to Nevada does raise eyebrows, but they're amused to find that the close community of Spirit Creek had harbored rumors for ages that they were a couple. And when Joey arrives from Iraq, both Mac and Natalia discover they like being a family. Mac's puzzled though, because Natalia keeps pulling back. For Natalia, helping Joey face his nightmares from Iraq, brings out her own even more. And when her nightmares become more frequent and happen even while she's awake, Natalia finds she can't cover them up anymore and her fear of being grounded is becoming a reality. This is a wonderful friends to lovers story. Mac's always been attracted to Natalia but never acted on the attraction because their friendship meant everything to him. So when things were going so well as a pretend family, it hurt when she pulled away from him. When Natalia has a PTSD episode in the air, she realizes she's has alot more to lose than her license to fly. I loved reading Mac and Natalia's journey, and catching up with Tori and Serena from the previous Spirit Creek stories. There are other secondary characters that have some unresolved issues, that I'm hoping we'll read about soon.

    xcellent book. This was an emotional book on several levels. There is Mac getting custody of his son, and his worry about being a good father. There is Natalia and her PTSD. And then there is the developing relationship between Mac and Natalia. Mac found out about his son a year ago and has been trying ever since to get him to the US. He finally decided that he would have a better chance if he were married. Since he had never felt the desire to do so, he decided to ask his best friend Natalia to xcellent book.

Meanwhile, Natalia had given up on the idea of marriage and family because of the nightmares and flashbacks she has been having. She did have a positive for the marriage, in that she too came to the US as a child and can relate to Davey that way. Then there is the relationship that is developing, beyond friendship, between Mac and Natalia. They had both been becoming more and more aware of the other, but each thought the other was not interested in taking it further. I loved seeing Mac and Davey grow closer, and also how much Davey came to mean to Natalia.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I pick up these books the way other people pick up bubble gum. Not intended as a meal, but a quick snack. So, I was very pleasantly surprised by how much the story moved me and how much it left me thinking about the choices that the characters make. The favor that Mac asks of Natalia does not seem very significant on its face. But, it will have profound effects upon her and upon the child that they are bringing into both of their lives. As Natalia is struggling with her PTSD in isolation, we see I pick up these books the way other people pick up bubble gum. Not intended as a meal, but a quick snack.

As Natalia is struggling with her PTSD in isolation, we see her total denial - she will not admit that she is putting others in danger. And, when she struggles with the idea that she needs to end her arrangement, you can see the effort to put the needs of Joe first. I walked away thinking about the choices that were made and the struggles that are ahead even as the story moves to its required happy ending.

    I liked the characters, struggled with the PTSD plot point (it felt superfluous), found myself a tiny bit bored at the halfway point. but it still held my attention.
