When you want to fly the best, you fly Sky High Air. And when you want spectacular adventure and scorching seduction, Jill Shalvis’s tantalizing, talented pilots Noah, Shayne, and Brody will get you there—fast, slow, or any way you want it...

Buckle Up. It’s Going To Be Quite A Ride...

Despite his brooding bad-boy attitude, Brody knows life has treated him pretty well. His luxury charter airline, Sky High, has given him financial security and the means to take to the skies whenever things on the ground get complicated. And lately, things have become very complicated, thanks to the insanely passionate, or perhaps just insane, kiss he shared with Sky High’s gorgeous, wisecracking concierge, Maddie. He’s tried to keep his distance, but now Maddie desperately needs help, and it’s triggering protective alpha-male urges Brody didn’t even know he had…

For months, Maddie hid her crush on sexy, exasperating Brody behind a cool, kick-ass exterior…and then blew that to smithereens by jumping him in the lobby. Yeah, real smooth. She’s tried to break her ties with Sky High, but Brody won’t let her walk away—especially now that he knows that Maddie and her twin sister Leena are in big-time trouble. To save Leena, Maddie and Brody must pose as husband and wife, and Maddie is amazed that the man she thought was oblivious to her existence knows her very well indeed. But that’s nothing compared to the way she’s about to get to know him—intimately, in depth, and over and over again…

It was clear while reading Strong and Sexy that Brody and Maddie had some serious chemistry, and I was eager to see them together. So I decided to pick up book three in the Sky High Air series by Jill Shalvis. Superb and Sexy was okay for me. It didn’t wow me, but I certainly didn’t dislike it either.

Superb and Sexy takes place shortly after the events of Strong and Sexy. Maddie, who is the concierge at Sky High Air, was severely injured at the end of the previous book. She’s been recuperating for months, but decides not to come back to Sky High Air. Maddie is fantastic at her job, and the three owners try to convince her to come back. Brody goes out to try to convince her, but soon realizes there are other things going on in Maddie’s life. As he tries to help Maddie out, of course their feelings grow for each other.

My feelings for this book are really just right in the middle. I don’t have strong feelings one way or the other, to be honest, so this is going to be a rather short review. While I liked Maddie and Brody, I was never really in love with them. Sometimes they would both do things that would annoy me. That said, I was happy when they were able to work out their issues and get together.

There is a romantic suspense element to this one, and I definitely found it to be mediocre. I guess what I’m saying is, Superb and Sexy by Jill Shalvis is an okay novel. But she has many other novels that are just fantastic, and I would recommend those over this one any day.

    I haven’t read any of her older books and though they sound good I can see that her newer stuff are much better than those. It’s too bad you were never completely in love with the couple. It sucks when it happens and makes it so much harder to review a book. You did a good job though!
