Melissa Black is a woman of few words and even fewer friends. Not that she’s complaining. Considering all she’s accomplished, all work and no play are words to live by. Shooting for the moon led her land among the stars as an astrophysicist. On top of that, she breaks new altitudes on the Air Force. And she isn’t even 30. From sleepless study habits to army crawls on dirt roads, she’s soared above and beyond time and again. So, why the hell should she care when the man who took her virginity twelve years ago flies back in her life?
The Blacks are all Kingsley Hastings has. They weren’t just neighbors. They were the family he’d never had, but always wanted. He’d found a real friend in Lionel and General Black had pledged a paternal promise. But it was Melissa who’d given him his real taste of pleasure all those years ago. Too bad that taste came too little, too late. Searching for a life beyond the base, he was set to leave town the next day. He should’ve known better. Now, his father’s funeral brings him back to the barracks—and he’s determined to make things right. (Amazon blurb)
Too many are left behind, abandoned, ignored or believed to have everything they need: a roof over their heads, clothes on their backs and full stomachs. Only, they forget that we need more, people need more: they need to belong, to feel appreciated and especially, and they need to feel love. Kingsley Hastings felt it once, only to have it ripped from his hands shortly afterwards. Melissa is a woman on a mission, refusing to let her past, her desire for one man and the one night that has marked her so profoundly that sleepless nights studying, soaring sky high over and over are preferable than friends and ‘crying over spilled milk’. This is the first time I’ve read a novel written by Fallen Kittie and I must admit, I’m intrigued; it was the type of novel that scratched an itch, but so much so that you had to keep coming back to soothe it, otherwise, it kept coming back, and I’m saying that in a good way. It was both dark and seductive, and romantic and hopeful; you can’t help but root for the happily every after and that these two characters can at the very least hash out what happened all those years ago. I can’t wait to see the next instalment in this series and find out more about the Black family.

As far as romances go, this one was pretty good. The two main characters had great chemistry and revealing emotions; the sex scenes were tastefully done, and the settings were well described. The dialogue was constructive to the overall story, and you could really feel the struggle between the two main characters as they explored their past and looked to their future.
Unfortunately, it just wasn’t my cup of tea. I honestly felt that it was a little too cliched, but that’s my personal preference. The story itself was a good rendition of a classic scenario, and there were some genuine parts that I enjoyed, but there’s potential there that wasn’t explored.
