Tani has written a hell of a romance series here! I’ll be joining in the blog tour for book #4 hosted by R&R! My review of Before The Tempest will be a stop on the tour on Thursday 5/25 so stop back by and check it out!
As for now, here is my review for UK Crush #3, Learning to Fly by Tani Hanes.
Learning to Fly (UK Crush #3) by Tani Hanes
*My ratting: 3.5 of 5 stars.*
In comparison to the first two books in the UK Crush series, I found Learning to Fly to be comfortable. There’s a lot of love in this book. It also had TWO of the biggest milestones in Aileen’s life, which is awesome. To make it even better, they happen one right after the other, making one hell of an epic week at the end of the book!
I love that Aileen (Tink) was able to get everything straightened out with her classical music career, especially after the near life threatening sabotage that was put in place in book 2. Tink pulled herself back up, spent the perfect amount of time with her original professor and wound up nailing her performance in an audition of a lifetime. She and Theodore (Teddy) spent a few very romantic weeks together in NYC which was very much a dream come true for her. I love Aileen’s humble approach at life and in her travels. I also really liked that they did so many touristy things together.
Although everything about this book, including the ending, was absolutely predictable — it was still overflowing with juicy bedroom scenes and refreshingly normal relationship situations. They attend famous events together as a regular couple. As a whole, I thought this particular book was cute. Their public affection for each other is beautiful, and their private time is heart thumping hot hot hot!
Tinker Bell’s life has changed so much in the past six months. She’s gone from being a poor music student to the girlfriend of a member of one of the most successful bands in the world. In Learning to Fly, the third in the UK Crush series, she travels to New York City with Teddy to compete in the most important piano audition of her life, to prestigious Hamilton Conservatory.
Life has never been easy for her, and though knowing Gethin, Ronan, Matthew, and of course, Teddy, has been wonderful, life is still fraught with unforeseeable problems. Her relationship with Teddy continues to grow as she falls more in love with him in beautiful wintertime Manhattan, and surprises await in the magical city of her dreams.
