Flight attendant Maxwell Lewis has spent years cultivating a bon vivant image only to find he finally wants something more—and that something more includes the never-does-repeats game designer Gibson Henry.


Maxwell Lewis is proud of the life he’s made. Having turned tragedy into triumph, he’s now a beloved member of a Target Airlines cabin crew with more than his fair share of attention both in the air and on the ground. But lately he’s wanted something more than the occasional hook-up or sometime sex buddy—particularly after meeting game designer and passenger Gibson Henry.

Talented and driven, Gibson has built a company ready to be the next big thing in gaming. Devoted to his work, he takes onetime pleasures where he find them and never does repeats…which is what he tells handsome, sexy Maxwell Lewis after a little mile-high flight attendance. But a chance encounter in a London club is about to change things forever. Two men, one who’s flown solo and another who’s only ever played alone, are about to find that at some point all games come to end, it’s time to bare your heart and try for love.

My View:

Flying Solo is book 6 in the Men of London Series and a perfect addition.

The prologue is like a punch to the gut as we watch Mooch’s life fall apart on the streets at a very young age. Mooch turns that devastation into something good as he pulls back his life and almost reinvents himself but he never forgets that fateful night or the loss he suffered.

Maxwell Lewis is a survivor. Well liked in his job as a cabin crew member, fun to be around and with a high sex drive that often involves plane toilets, chances are if you have been with the man you feature and rank somewhere on sexcella. He’s looking for that perfect score and just recently he has become far more eager to find it. He wants what his friends have – someone to come home to and someone to fall in love with. Where previously just the thought made him shudder he is now almost desperate to find it, the sooner the better. Even though he has moved on in his life his past still remains like a cloud, you see this is in the way he lives, the way he stores his belongings and his vulnerability. He hasn’t let Levi go altogether.

Gibson Henry has the look of an angel and the temper of the devil, well in my mind anyway. Sexy, slutty and rarely up for a repeat performance his life revolves around work and building up his company alongside his best friend. A quick and satisfying encounter with Maxwell whilst on a flight should be just that, quick and satisfying, but it becomes a memory that lingers and teases until they bump into each other in a club a few weeks later. I still can’t get the vision of Maxwell performing the crane in the middle of a gay bar and feel I should thank the author for that!

Flying Solo is emotional, sassy and fun. It brings together a man terrified of commitment and another so desperate for it he can almost taste it. If they can just get over their hang ups and their pasts they may hit that perfect 5!
