Synopsis

At twenty-four, Harlow Robinson has run headfirst into a quarter-life crisis. Her high school girlfriends have dropped like flies, one wedding after another, forcing her into panic mode. It’s fight or flight time, and flight wins—literally. She breaks off a loveless engagement with her childhood sweetheart and abandons a teaching degree to become a flight attendant for Omega Skies.
Now Harlow is living her best glamorous, single life as a self-proclaimed sky muffin, at least that’s how it appears from the outside. But 3:00AM wakeup calls and nights alone in hotels make the days blend into a blur of loneliness. When her seven roommates sign her up for the dating app Sparks, Harlow finds herself navigating an entirely new lifestyle with more men than she can handle.
What’s a girl to do? Date them all, of course.
From New York Times bestseller, Wendy Higgins, comes her first contemporary adult romcom. Please sit back and keep your seatbelts fastened because this will be a bumpy ride. Enjoy your flight.

Review

Harlow Robinson wanted to change her life, so she left her boyfriend and her studies to become a Flight Attendant (FA). She’d like to find a proper boyfriend. She meets Shawn a military officer on a trip and literally falls under his spell. Unfortunately, the situation is complicated. I won’t tell you any more and I’ll try not to spoil the story for you.

I liked Harlow a lot, she is adorable, she lives with her roommates who are also Flight Attendant in a small apartment. She doesn’t like one-night stands, she’s very popular with pilots and co-pilots. She doesn’t earn a lot of money so she sometimes doesn’t eat or she enjoys the free food in the hotels she goes to. Except when her friend, the co-pilot Silas, invites her.

Shawn is an interesting character, I like him, but I won’t say more than that.

The story is great, we see Harlow fall in love, ask herself questions, stay true to her promises and frankly I laughed, I cried, I went through all kinds of emotions and I love it when a book does that to me. I was also surprised and I have to admit it’s pretty cool.

I loved Harlow’s girlfriends Holly, Rhea, Willa and Sydney. They’re awesome. I had a great time every time they were there and maybe we’ll have their stories in future books.

Wendy managed to write a romance full of lightness, love, friendship and trust. I liked the characters who are all very realistic, their lives are not perfect, like everyone else’s in fact. You can lso see that the life of flight attendant, which seems beautiful to us, is not necessarily so.
Quick word : A romance pleasant to read urgently.

Chronique

Harlow Robinson a eu envie de changer de vie, elle a quitté son mec et ses études pour devenir hôtesse de l’air. Elle aimerait trouver un petit ami digne de ce nom. Elle rencontre Shawn un officier militaire pendant un voyage et elle tombe littéralement sous son charme. Malheureusement, la situation est compliquée. Je ne vous en dirais pas plus et je vais essayer de ne pas vous spoiler l’histoire.

J’ai beaucoup aimé Harlow, elle est adorable, elle vit avec ses colocataires qui sont aussi hôtesses de l’air dans un petit appartement. Elle n’aime pas les coups d’un soir, elle est très appréciée des pilotes et copilotes. Elle ne gagne pas beaucoup d’argent donc il lui arrive de ne pas manger ou de profiter de la nourriture des hôtels dans lequel elle va. Sauf quand son ami le copilote Silas, l’invite.

Shawn est un personnage intéressant, je l’aime bien mais je n’en dirais pas plus.

L’histoire est géniale, on voit Harlow tomber amoureuse, se poser des questions, rester fidèles à ses promesses et franchement j’ai ri, j’ai pleuré, je suis passée par toutes sortes d’émotions et j’adore quand un livre me fait ça. J’ai aussi été surprise et il faut avouer que c’est assez cool.

J’ai adoré les copines de Harlow, Holly, Rhéa, Willa and Vonetta. Elles sont géniales. J’ai passé un excellent moment à chaque fois qu’elles étaient présentes et peut être que nous aurons leurs histoires dans de prochains livres.

Wendy a réussi à écrire une romance pleine de légèreté, d’amour, d’amitié et de confiance. J’ai aimé les personnages qui sont tous très réalistes, leurs vies ne sont pas parfaites, comme celles de tout le monde en fait. On voit aussi que la vie des hôtesses de l’air qui nous parait belle, ne l’est pas forcément.
En bref : Une romance agréable à lire de toute urgence.
