My rating: 4 of 5 stars
In the first part of this serialized story, Paul is an airline pilot who’s struggling to fit in amongst macho car fanatics and womanizers. When he meets the handsome Dallas, he finally feels like things are going his way. Even better, the flight he’s serving on, Flight 501, is taking him to Bermuda where he’ll be able to spend more time with Dallas. But something’s not quite right about Flight 501, and Paul is about to have his skeptical world-view challenged by the unexpected.
I thought this was a very strong start to a serial story that I will definitely be reading more of. It’s got enough mystery that it feels like a season opener for Lost instead of an m/m novel. It really gripped me by the tail and pulled me right in, something which every good story should aim to achieve.
I really like the amount of research Castillo-Price has obviously taken the time for; the details pour out from the page in a way that’s accurate and believable. Paul feels like a real airline pilot who knows what he’s doing instead of a character that’s built on guesswork and it adds a sense of realism to the story. His relationship with Dallas doesn’t rush in any way; they’re just getting to know each other and I can’t wait to see where it goes, especially after the thrilling way this part ends. I have a lot of questions and I’m looking forward to following along to see if they’re answered.
If you’re looking for m/m that’s about more than the just the romance, you can’t go wrong with Into The Bermuda Triangle, especially as it’s a free read on the Amazon Kindle Store.
