TeriLyn's thoughts: **Fly generously provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.**
My first Molly McLain story and I now look forward to reading the next in the Velocity series having finished Fly. Colton and Taylor have been best friends since childhood each grappling with growing feelings towards each other that are much more than friendly. Each of these characters has charisma, charm, and wit I found very refreshing to read. I suppose this is New Adult-esque due to their ages and I found what each of them was internally fighting with fit for the time frame. Colton struggles with keeping his best friend safely tucked away from the prospect of another man while he finds fame. Taylor caters to Colton's whims waiting for it to be her turn all the while wanting to escape small-town blues. As flirting and possessiveness ramp up for both characters their friendship is sent into a tailspin neither saw coming nor do they know how to react to the changes.
I definitely enjoyed Fly. It was fast paced and entertaining with interesting characters and a story I feel invested in reading. There's not a lot of layers to the story and it was a little on the predictable side in terms of the romance but I never felt disengaged. McLain writes in the first person point of view alternating between Colton and Taylor. As Colton is a Motocross racer we get a little bit sports plot but the main story line is these two figuring out what's more important their fondness and friendship or the risk of being so much more. Secondary characters played well into the story also, both as friends and foes alike. I look forward to finding out the next part of Colton and Taylor's story in Fight, the ending left me hanging nicely on that cliff reeling for more.
