My Review: 4-Stars

Rebecca Steele Chasing a Dream is a light, fun little read. The cover didn’t scream romance to me, but it does show what the story is. Joanne Patterson did a good job of capturing what it’s like to date a “famous” pilot. I spent four years in the Navy, hosting the Blue Angles every year. She did a great job showing the lifestyle of the Silver Eagles and flight attendants for civilian airlines.

While I enjoyed the story, it didn’t really dig deep into the characters or the setting enough for me. The author showed mostly the surface of the characters, and I didn’t feel connected with anyone in particular until towards the end. The last three chapters are fantastic at showing the main character, Becky’s emotions. We traveled to several major cities, but I never felt like I left a random bar or hotel room. I would have liked more descriptions of the places she visits while following her Silver Eagle, Johnny around.

The ending is a nice surprising twist. This isn’t your average romance. It feels like a true story.

I recommend Rebecca Steele Chasing a Dream to anyone who enjoys a light romance without sex scenes. I mostly read erotica, and I found this book to be refreshing. The author knows how to tell a sexy story without the sex.
