Rye Mallett is a 'freight dog', a pilot who'll fly anywhere in the world, at any time, at a moment's notice, through the worst weather. As a fighter pilot in Afghanistan, he escaped death once. Figuring that it's only a matter of time before it catches up with him, he tempts it by taking risks. But one night he takes to the air, when no other pilot would, to deliver a black padlocked box. What awaits him at his destination is a near crash ... and a run-in with Dr. Brynn O'Neal. Brynn, a dedicated physician, is under a forty-eight hour deadline to save a patient by means of the contents of the box Rye delivers. She's lovely to look at, but Rye doesn't trust her. He's volatile and a threat to Brynn's plan. But soon they're reluctantly teamed in a mad race against the clock, the law, and the ruthless individuals who will kill in order to get the precious payload for themselves.

I go by the 50 page rule.
You either like it or you don't.
I didn't and I won't recommend it.

Competent enough, but extremely by-the-numbers. Several of the characters were stereotypical (the cocky, bad boy pilot; the kind-hearted doctor looking to prove herself), with little to make them stand out from similar types. Being a race against time story, I feel it should have had a faster pace, but it's rather slow-going, even tedious.
For me the part which really didn't work was the love story. In addition to the two being uninteresting on their own, their sudden passion is overblown and unconvincing. Aside from the fact that both were physically attractive and loners (him more than her), I didn't understand why their bond was profound enough to merit such sparks.
Not a bad book by any means-- I do admit the villains are fun and some scenes are suspenseful-- but not one I can see myself revisiting. I'd recommend it if you need something light to read during a trip.

I didn't think this book was all that exciting not something that I'd want to read again

Sandra Brown has done it again. A fantastic read. I was hooked immediately and couldn’t put it down. A nice blend of mystery and romance.

When Rye Mallet took the job of flying a package in foul weather to be delivered, he didn't realize the trouble that he would face. After is plane crashes and he meets Dr. Brynn O'Neal, things get really confusing for him. But too many people are after the package that he was delivering. Rye has sworn off all relationships, but is drawn to Brynn. The two of them race against time to make sure the package gets to where Brynn wants it to go while dodging cops and others who are after them and trying to ignore the feelings between them. This is a very good book from beginning to end.

Another great thriller from Sandra Brown. I listened to the audio version and Victor Slezak did the book justice once again. Wish I didn’t have to wait a year for her next book!
