Playboy Pilot by Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland

9/21/16 | 7 Hours 35 Minutes | Narrated by Andi Arndt and Sebastian Stan

Captain Carter Clines, Triple C "Trip" (okay a big deal is made of this clever nickname but it's only used like three times)  is the playboy pilot and he has no shame about the flight attendants he's slept with or making  a suggestive comment or two to Kendall Sparks the pretty blonde heiress he meets in an airport lounge. Together they embark on an around the world vacation, but they can't outrun the real-life troubles waiting for them at home.

I think I grabbed this audiobook on sale based on the  kitsch title alone, I don't know what I was expecting but this book was surprisingly fun because it's mostly about Kendall and Carter having fun on their globe hopping vacation. I kept waiting to see where they would go next. The conflict was super soapy and there is even a  wacky Romancelandia will. I can't even explain it but involves babies and IVF.

Sure if you just barley squint this is one of those books were the heroine is introduced to the hero and he changes her life. We don't get any of Kendall's experiences or learn what makes her unique outside of Carter. I haven't read a lot of playboy books, but I like that Carter has to come to terms with the consequences of his past to get a happy ending.

Andi Arndt and Sebastian York are like the  Ben Affleck/Matt Damon or the Meg Ryan/Tom Hanks of romance audiobooks. At first I found Arndt's narration a little sleepy but it starts to pick up and she has this perfectly well matched cocky attitude when it comes to voicing Carter that I think really added something to Carter. York, as per usual, played it pretty straight
