ARC Review: Into the Blue (Wild Aces #2) by Chanel Cleeton

The blurb as seen on Goodreads:
Release Date: July 5, 2016
Publisher: Berkley
320 Pages

From the author of Fly with Me and the Capital Confessions Novels comes the newest in the sexy Wild Aces Romance series.

Eric Jansen—call sign Thor—loves nothing more than pushing his F-16 to the limit. Returning home to South Carolina after a tragic loss, he hopes to fix the mistake he made long ago, when he chose the Air Force over his fiancĂ©e.

Becca Madison isn’t quick to welcome Thor back. She can’t forget how he shattered her heart. But Thor won’t give up once he’s set his sights on what he wants—and he wants Becca.

Thor shows Becca that he’s no longer the impulsive boy he used to be, and Becca finds herself irresistibly drawn to him. But will Thor be able to walk away from his dream of flying the F-16 for their love or does his heart belong to the sky?

His call sign is Thor - I had to read this book. And I wasn't disappointed. 

Eric and Becca were high school sweethearts with extremely different goals. Eric wanted more than anything to join the Air Force and fly planes. Becca wanted to stay in their small town and practice law. Well, the good news is, they both achieved their goals. The bad news? It cost them their relationship. Ten years later, Eric has lost someone close to him and it's making him question his choices in life. When he decides to go back home to clear his head, he realizes just how much he's been missing. However, Becca isn't willing to just forgive him for leaving all those years ago. 

Into the Blue radiated small town charm. A southern town in South Carolina where everyone knows everyone and your business isn't just your own was a character itself in this book and held different meanings. For Becca, it was home. The one place where she found family and stability. It made her feel safe and secure. For Eric, it was a trap. A dead end with no way out.

This book was interesting in that I sided with each character for different reasons. I understood Eric's desire to want more and to follow that dream wherever it took him. But I also understood Becca's wanting of that close knit family that she had found. Neither were wrong in their desires, however, some decisions could have been better made. For example, Eric leaving Becca. I am totally with her on being pissed and heartbroken with how that was handled. 

A very sweet story on second chances, the difficulties life can bring and how home really is where the heart is. 

I received an e-copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
