    Vintage Romance - Space Race

    Free Fall by Genevieve Turner & Emma Barry Fly Me To The Moon #6 Vivian “Vivy” Muller’s laugh drew Major Dean Garland to her side at a party they both were invited to. With little ado they made their escape only to find themselves soon wed to one another as a result of that one night they spent together. Vivy, a wealthy sorority girl, juggles being a student and an astronaut’s wife as she gets to know the quiet man she is married to. Dean finds that the home Vivy has created and her chatter provide something his life was missing. With work tense as he prepares to go up into space and secrets and rules that are impacting his time with Vivy there is often tension between the couple that is stressful to both of them. The way they find their HEA and a true relationship is a joy to read. Vivy is strong and wise and giving with a heart of gold and Dean is so much more than the seemingly cold quiet face he presents to the world. I have to say that this series is one of my favorite ever. It takes me back in time and reminds me of my past. One scene in the book that uses a candle to announce an engagement to sorority sisters reminded me of my own “blow out” when in nursing school. These stories make me feel and care and hope and remember…I love them all! Thank you to the authors for the ARC – this is my honest review. 5 Stars

    Another great addition to the series!

    Free Fall by Emma Barry and Genevieve Turner is the latest romance in the author duo’s Fly Me to the Moon series. It’s set in the early days of the space race between the Americans and the Soviets. With a fascinating mix of fact and fiction and emotionally engaging characters, it’s a series not to be missed. Each story reads well as a standalone with a compelling romance amid the successes and failures of various missions. When astronaut Dean Garland meets Vivian Muller at a party, their one night stand results in an unexpected pregnancy followed quickly by a shotgun wedding. Neither Dean nor Vivy was given any choice in the matter especially since Vivy’s father is a wealthy defense contractor who works with the space program. The one thing Dean and Vivy have in common is sexual attraction which should be enough to start their marriage off right, but to Vivy’s dismay, Dean’s told her he isn’t allowed any ‘distractions’ of the romantic or sexual kind due to a training accident for which an astronaut with a party going reputation was deemed at fault. Adjusting to marriage with a stranger and no sex? No way. Vivy is determined to make the best of things and entice her husband back into the bedroom. But the training Dean is involved in to make the first space walk is no joke. With the pressure on, can Dean and Vivy survive the first few months of their marriage intact, and discover real love waiting in the wings? I adore this series, and have consistently put previous entries on my ‘best of the year’ reading lists for their originality, attention to detail (both style and substance dealing with the era and the development of the space program), and unique, likable, realistic characters. Once again, the authors have created a relationship that shows how much work is involved in making equal partnerships, especially in a time when women had defined societal roles and had to learn to make the most of their true power. Vivy comes from a privileged family and never questioned the authority of her parents (hence her acquiescence to the marriage) or what her father does for a living. Now that she’s married to an astronaut who will be using the equipment manufactured by her father’s company, it's a quick learning curve to realize the real world consequences of something to which she'd never given more than a passing thought. Dean and Vivy have an awkward start, but gradually get to know each other and commit to making the best of their situation. Dean spends weeks away in training and during that time Vivy becomes friends with the other astronauts' wives. I enjoyed these scenes, and watching Vivy mature and gain confidence in her role as Dean's wife, but also in learning to stand up to her parents and prove she's no longer their little girl. It was also delightful to see Dean and Vivy come to know and care for each other and they share some sexy love scenes. The training accident that occurs at the start of the story is investigated throughout in order to determine the real cause and make sure it doesn't happen again. This adds some underlying tension to the story, especially as it comes closer to Dean's mission. The authors do a very credible job of putting the reader in the cockpit with the astronauts as they blast off into space and I find myself on pins and needles every time wondering how things will turn out. Since this is a romance, you can be assured that regardless of what may happen in the story, there's a happy ending guaranteed, but not without putting you on the edge of your seat to get there. I highly recommend this story, and all the others in the series.

    Super Sweet!

    Free Fall is about Dean and Vivian, an astronaut and the daughter of of a wealthy businessman, who happen to find themselves in a sticky situation. They are expecting a baby and they have to get married to "set things right". This story follows their relationship and the troubles of Dean's career. This book really made me feel good - it's ooey gooey cute and isn't negative. It's the type of book you'd want to read when you are in a bad mood because it will pick you up. Yes, there's drama in this book (it's a romance novel, there's bound to be some kind of drama), but it doesn't make you feel bad. I love a book that lets me sink into it's words and feel great, and Emma does that perfectly. I'm also so incredibly excited to see a book about a woman with a full figure that isn't solely about her weight. Vivy embraces her full figure, and isn't described as "fat". I can fully relate to Vivian - I've always been athletic, and as a child I was told by other kids I was "fat" because I wasn't super skinny like everybody else was in my classes. Being told to stay silent, be smaller, etc., just like Vivy was my life until I got older. It's nice to see the storyline develop with the introduction to her body type, but not revolve around her weight. Too often do we see differences (whether it's gender, sexuality, weight, etc) be used as the problem or plot line of the story, but this book embraced her as a person. I'd like to see more of Dean and Vivian - I think they're characters are well developed and could definitely hold their own in a series! I'm not sure where we could take them, but they were very cute! These characters do develop and face issues in this story. Now the big question - do I have any cons (since I've listed many pros). If anything, I would have liked the book to be longer! Maybe a little more drama or action between the couple themselves. That's my only suggestion to improve, because this was a really good book! It's a worth while read! The book was "long enough", but I could see this book including a few extra chapters and work just as well! Overall, this book was truly beautiful! It's a nice read to embrace on a soft, summer day! I highly recommend this book and declare it a romance must-read! It's also not even close to an R rating (there are some sexy scenes, but nothing a PG-13 warning label won't cover). So if you love romance and a happy ending, then this book will be for you! Five out of five stars!
