~ Excerpt ~
The sound of “I love you” fills the room. My heart drops to my knees. My throat constricts; I can’t breathe. Those three words were meant for me. He doesn’t notice me standing in the doorway. He doesn’t notice the look of shock and pain that carries across my face. I can feel the tears burn, as he calls her name.

~ Review ~
This book is the follow up to Nicky's release Footprints which my favorite book  so far by her.  The story opens with Tanner and Riley's wedding and a bigger introduction to Parker, Tanner's best friend.  The story then flashes back months to tells us more about what's got Parker all tangled up in knots........Willow.
Taking Flight is Parker and Willow's story  and what a story it is.  This book will make you want to shake the characters, push them together and at times pull them apart.   Give me a troubled alpha male with attitude and I am a happy girl.  Throw in the fact that he is super hot and actually has a softer side and I am hooked.  
Willow is reeling from the sudden breakup from her fiance' and ends up in a small town in Texas.  What she finds there is a sense of peace and an infuriating Parker Davis. 

The chemistry is there but Willow is just not open to letting anyone in, while  Parker can't seem to let it go.   Watching these  two is like watching a ping pong match.  The back and forth of emotion pulls you in begging for a resolution.  
Now as I have come to expect from this author there is always a twist, an unexpected twist that will send you gasping, crying or even threaten you to harm your kindle or nook.   So I was waiting, enjoying all things Parker, Willow, Tanner and Riley and just when I thought I was in the clear, she got me.
Another well done story, I will definitely be awaiting the release of Grounded to see  what's next for these characters I have grown to love.
