Devastatingly handsome pilot Frank Sheldon is doing his best to avoid his inheritance of money, charm, and good looks by rebuilding his life on his own terms after being discharged from the Air Force just before the repeal of DADT. When he unexpectedly meets the eccentric geek Benjamin Kaplan, sparks don’t quite fly, despite Benjamin’s obvious interest. Frank is not one to back down from a challenge, but what does any of that have to do with his sister’s campaign for governor, or the muckraking political website attacking her opponent, who just happens to be Frank’s unlamented, very closeted ex-boyfriend? It’s hard to fall in love when all you are getting is mixed signals.

This was so much fun.  How Cooper West kept all the threads in this plot in order when it was so convoluted and fabulous is just astounding!  The main characters of Benjamin-engineer and genius extraordinaire- and Frank-super handsome ex-Air Force pilot- make a great “opposites attract” pair to begin with.  Then you add in politics, back-stabbing exes, family interference, secrets, and blackmail, and whew.  I mean this little book has it all.  It has a fabulous slow burn courtship, some truly sweet and surprising romance, and an absolutely a-dork-able happily ever after.  The first third was a little slow, but then it takes off.  (heh-unintentional reference to flight there).  This is the only thing keeping it from a five star for me.  I am glad I did not give up on this story.  Definitely worth the readers time!
