FALLING FOR THE WINGMAN

FALLING FOR THE WINGMAN            CRISTA MC HUGH
Posted:  Mar. 3, 2014

Air Force pilot Caleb Kelly has come back home with one mission in mind—to propose to the woman whose letters and lucky charm helped him survive his deployment in Afghanistan. But when he finds their apartment empty with a note saying she’s left him, he arrives at her mother’s house in rural Alabama less than a week before Kourtney is about to marry another man. Now he’s out to win her heart again and gets some unexpected assistance from her younger sister, Alex.

Alex Leadbetter has always thought Caleb was too good for her manipulative, social-climbing sister. She had assumed Kourtney’s identity to write letters to him and keep his spirits up until he returned home to the hard truth, never expecting to fall in love with him along the way. After he shows up in town, she convinces him that the best way to get Kourtney back is to make her think he’s fallen for someone new — her. But when a fake romance becomes all too real, her deception may leave them both grounded.

MY REVIEW:

   What a fun story this was.  A classic Cyrano with a flip of the coin.  Alex Leadbetter, she is Cyrano.  Caleb Kelly is Christian who Alex helps woo her sister in this case Kourtney.  Whom would be the said Roxanne?
     You see Caleb is a Flyboy and was dating and living with Kourtney on a base when he go deployed to Afghanistan, not soon after he left Kourtney wrote a dear John letter and left it on the bar at the house not even bothering to mail it to him.  So, Alex who had been in love with Caleb since the moment she met him hacks her sisters email account and writes to him for 9 of the 11 months he was gone to give him hope and courage to keep going and stay safe and for safe passage home.  While trying to soften the blow saying she didn’t like being a service man’s girlfriend it’s not for her.        When he arrives home to no girlfriend to meet him and a note he jumps in his car and drives to hours to get to her mother’s home to get the answers from Kourtney.  One small problem.  He’s met at the door by Alex only to find out Kourtney getting married in 6 days.  Alex and him come up with a plan…
     I really enjoyed this story a great deal.  The characters were a lot of fun.  I really enjoyed Alex’s zest for life and how she really cared about all her friends and towns’ people, most of all how well she loved Caleb.  She loved him with her whole mind, body and soul.  He just never saw her he was too blinded by her sister’s boobs.  Although he had so much more in common with Alex you could tell from the start of the story.
     I love how Alex stays and is the same person but yet in Caleb’s eyes she is the caterpillars morphing into a butterfly.  Fast read but so worth it all the supporting characters only add to its charm.  Proof readers would be helpful this book had a lot of third grade mistakes.  Provided by netgalley.
