The newest erotic romance from New York Times Bestselling author, Whitney G...
He and I met under a cloud of clichés:
Boy meets girl. Boy charms girl. Boy fucks girl.
Our story was supposed to end right after the orgasms, right after we went our separate ways.
But then we saw each other again...
And neither of us could walk away.
Our rules were simple.
Our passion was scandalous.
Our hearts were supposed to be safe...
But when you find something so all-consuming--something so intoxicating and inescapable, you'll risk everything you've ever had, even if you're destined to crash and burn.
This is us.
This is our messed up love.
This is turbulence.
Okay, so I may have a teeny tiny huge girl crush on Whitney G. I’ve been waiting on pins and needles for Turbulence to be released, and I must say it’s well worth the wait. Successfully combining erotica and comedy is difficult, but this book proves that Whitney G. is a master at it.

My fondness for anti-heroes is hit or miss. If I want to get aboard the S.S. Douche Canoe there are plenty of captains in real life. I don’t need to read about unjustifiably cruel ones when I want an escape. However, in a well-crafted romantic comedy such as this one, an alpha-hole with a wicked tongue adds entertainment to the storyline.
Jake is rude and crude, but it’s clear from the beginning there’s a reason behind his behavior. We just don’t know what it is. He’s a highly decorated pilot—actually a senior captain—who rebuffs authority at every turn. He shows disdain for practically everyone he encounters and has no qualms about voicing his opinion in the most insulting and shocking way possible. However, getting the ladies is no problem. Dead Sexy is his name, but attachments aren’t his game.
Gillian is a down on her luck flight attendant who’s dealing with the loss of a promising career. She’s not usually a one night stand kind of lady, but after giving in to a one-nighter with Jake, he proposes a no-strings arrangement. They’ll have exclusive sex whenever and wherever their flight schedules cross, but there will be no emotional involvement, no dates, no calling, no texting—unless it’s sex related.
“You don’t get to ask me questions about anything more than if I can go harder, longer, and deeper, and I won’t ask you anything outside of ways I can better please your pussy.”
Well then. How could a gal say no to that? Against her better judgment, Gillian agrees to his proposition, and so begins an intense and tumultuous on again/off again affair. The barbs and snarky banter these two exchange in are downright hilarious. They push and pull—not just against each other, but against their own feelings.
Here’s a little advice. Do not read this book in public. To say there’s a lot of sex would be an understatement considering how insatiable Gillian and Jake are. I’m pretty sure Whitney G. has a PhD in erotica, so the dirty talking and sizzling hate sex is sure to get your Kindle smoking.
“You don’t need to like me to fuck me,” he said. “You just need to like fucking me.”
Jake is an enigma who is hiding a painful past, and the details of Gillian’s downfall are sketchy. The mystery really helps drive the story, and the combination of intrigue, passion, humor, and plot twists had me devouring this book way past my bedtime.
It falls just shy of 5 stars for me because I was left with some unsettled questions about Jake, and I thought he could have done a little more groveling along the way. Also, Gillian’s heinous family members are too much like caricatures with their over the top dialogue and behavior. However, these are minor complaints compared to my overall enjoyment.
Turbulence is a wonderfully sultry and amusing page-turner that should entertain readers looking for a lighthearted erotic romance.
