Release Date: February 26, 2014
Genre: adult, contemporary, romance, erotic
The First Novel in G.L. Ross’s Sexy “Flyboy” Trilogy:
Captain Lance Miller has dreamt about his green eyed goddess for twenty years and has almost given up any hope of finding her, of course that hasn’t prevented him from being the biggest playboy flying with International Air, that is until he meets new hire Flight Attendant Lisa Price. The gorgeous, virginal blond is physically attracted to the tall, dark, Air Force pilot, but his egotistical, manwhore tendencies shock and frighten her naïve religious upbringing. Despite a series of turbulent starts the pair cannot deny the passion sizzling between them, and once their relationship takes off, Lance cannot get enough of his curvy goddess, whereas Lisa is terrified of the consequences if she admits her feelings for Lance, so she keeps her cards close to her chest.
Turbulent Passion is a sexy, steamy love story, with a touch of BDSM. Lance and Lisa’s love story introduces the reader to: Texas and the great city of Austin, country music, Tex-Mex food, male dominance, redemption, Air Force camaraderie, along with an ending which leaves the reader eager for book two of the Flyboy Trilogy.
REVIEW: TURBULENT PASSION is the first storyline in G.L. Ross’s adult, contemporary, erotic Flyboy Trilogy. This is airline pilot Captain Lance Miller and Flight Attendant/psychologist Lisa Price’s storyline.
Told from two distinct first persons POV (Lisa and Lance) Turbulent Passion follows the building relationship between Lisa and Lance. Lance is off limits as far as Lisa is concerned. With his reputation as a love’em and leave’em flyboy, one night stand sort of man, Lance is the epitome of a manwhore. But for all her protestations, Lisa is drawn to Lance. His beauty, his powerful build and his vibrant personality all call to Lisa’s heart. The only problem is that Lisa is an inexperienced virgin who has been holding out for her wedding night.
Part of the premise of the story is Lance’s twenty plus years of dreaming about a green eyed goddess. Everywhere he looks, he searches for the woman who haunts both his days and his nights. When he spots Lisa at the airport, he knows he has found his soul mate and pursue her with dogged determination.
The sexual tension between Lance and Lisa is palpable. Their attraction to one another is immediate but Lisa has a difficult time accepting Lance’s past. As Lisa endeavors to see other men, Lance waits impatiently for Lisa to acknowledge their mutual attraction. As the storyline builds, so too does their emotional and sexual relationship. From adversaries to friends to lovers, Lisa and Lance will begin to fall in love but life has a way of destroying everything that was meant to be. The sex scenes are provocative, entertaining and arousing.
The secondary characters include several of Lisa and Lance’s fellow co-workers including pilots, flight attendants and airline employees. The world building is awash with airline terminology, on board flight rituals and a behind the scenes look at what pilots and flight attendants do in their down time.
There are several instances where the author uses character ‘aside comments’ or ‘inner dialogue’ in the text; expressing themselves in relation to something that has happened or has been said. This particular literary device was a bit of a distraction to the overall enjoyment of the story.
I did have some concern about the ‘inexperienced virgin’ premise as the author played the Christianity/religious card quite often in the early stages of the storyline. And as for the inexperienced virgin, all it took was one night of sex and our heroine could compete with the most experienced of lovers. Not quite believable but it is, after all, a story of fiction.
TURBULENT PASSION is a provocative storyline about two completely different people whose attraction to one another is intense and electric. There is a slight touch of BDSM (as the blurb explained) but it is secondary to the storyline and almost inconsequential to the overall premise. The storyline ends on a major cliffhanger, so beware, Turbulent Passion is the first in the series and ends with a heartbreaking and staggering final chapter.

Continue Lance & Lisa’s Turbulent Passion, in Book Two of the Flyboy Trilogy:
REVIEW: BURNING DESIRE is the second instalment in G.L. Ross’s adult, contemporary, erotic romance Flyboy Trilogy focusing on the continuing relationship between airline captain Lance Miller and flight attendant Lisa Price. Burning Desire is not a stand alone novel and therefore the series must be read in order.
Told from several first person points of view, BURNING DESIRE picks up immediately on the cliffhanger from book one Turbulent Passion. Trying to avoid spoilers is difficult because Burning Desire’s entire premise focuses on the aftermath of a plane crash that has left our couple trying to recapture their love and their feelings for one another but it is difficult when there is nothing but the present. Lisa’s personality has been dramatically altered and in this, her character is, at times, difficult to like. Lance is determined to prove to Lisa that she is the love of his life but Lisa is determined to prove that she needs no one but herself. She doesn’t like Lance’s over protective nature and his need to control leaves something to be desired.
BURNING DESIRE focuses more on Lance and Lisa’s relationship. The secondary characters include Lisa’s parents, a few of their fellow co-workers as well as some new introductions to the storyline. The world building continues with the investigation into the crash and the after affects of a devastating loss.
If you are a fan of FSOG you will see many similarities between the Flyboy Trilogy and the number one best selling series. The Flyboy Series is about a man who loves a woman beyond reason but there are setbacks, anxious moments and a near loss of life that add to an already tumultuous relationship. And when the past comes roaring back, we will find Lisa and Lance facing another possible setback and loss. G.L. Ross takes the reader on a roller coaster of emotional highs and lows, as one couple struggles to overcome both the present and the past.
