When Dr. Tobi Robinson returns to Whiskey River, Travis Sullivan is the only person to recognize that the smokin' hot babe at the gala is actually his high school tomboy buddy. Time away has changed them both. Tobi, the prospective business major, became a doctor, while Travis, his pro baseball career ended by injury, converted his passion for flying into a charter flight business and flight school.
The easy friendship they enjoyed in high school soon deepens into desire and then love. But Tobi didn’t turn to medicine by chance—a horrific accident has left her unable to tolerate even approaching an airplane. As strongly as Travis draws her, Tobi isn’t sure she can ever trust her heart to a pilot. Can Travis convince the woman he’s discovered he can’t live without that their love can conquer every trauma?

I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley and I loved it enough to purchase a copy.
I am just going to say, WOW!! This is intense. I felt so bad for Tobi. Her fear of airplanes, after being the only survivor of a small plane crash. This crash killed her BFF. Travis, is a pilot of a small aircraft and a trainer as well. This is their story of coming together over this past tragedy.
The book is written with a dual POV. This really helped me, the reader, to identify with Tobi's fear. Never having been through the experience, it was a MUST. It is hard to said if she was irrational as I don't have a reference point to go with. Having a look into her thoughts and fears, this helped me as a reader to see where she was coming from. Why she did and/or didn't do things or even say things that I felt were illogical. Ms. Gaddy did a wonderful job of writing this.
Travis, on the other hand, is a definite keeper!!! What a fabulous male protagonist. I just fell in love with him immediately. He was strong and alpha while being kind and caring.
I highly recommend this story to anyone. Yes, there are some sex scenes and strong language BUT it was more of an enhancing of the story not THE story!
Emotional, Heartwarming, and Steamy Read

This was an emotional, heartwarming, and steamy read. The characters were realistic. I really liked Travis’ character and loved how he was there for Tobi.
It was great to be back in Whiskey River. I loved that series. If you haven’t read the first Whiskey River series I recommend it. Looking forward to the additional books in the Devil’s Rock at Whiskey River.
