A wealthy family...
A childhood tragedy...
A love defying all odds...
Secrets in the Air

Flying is in Rhett O'Neil's blood. And nothing makes this pilot fly higher than wrapping himself in his husband Kaden's arms. He's thrilled when his grandfather entrusts him with O'Neil Airways, the family's charter airplane business. With a mix of humanitarian and corporate clients, Rhett plans a bright future where his success improves the world. 
Elise, Rhett's estranged mother, begins offering advice to "help" her son through the transition into increased responsibility. As evidence surfaces that her words are escalating into devastating actions, the truth comes out about the death of Rhett's sister Annabelle. Following a harrowing mission, Kaden has to race to protect his husband and himself from the consequences of the Secrets in the Air before it's too late.

Secrets in the Air by Liz Borino told like a soap opera of melodramatic lives and thoughts of ‘if it could happen, it would’. Rhett and Kaden, high school sweethearts, have been together for many years, and married for three. The life of these two men unfolded during the course of the tale through turmoil and tragedy.

Rhett has just inherited part of his grandfather’s airline company, to find out that Pop secretly also worked with the FBI. This tidbit of information set up the rise and fall of the story.

As much as I enjoy a Liz Borino tale, Secrets in the Air did not cut it for me.

The overall theme revolved around human trafficking, although supposed to be the underlying plot throughout the tale, seemed more of an afterthought.  And the multitude of twists and turns distracted from the global concept of the story, as opposed to enhancing it.

Secrets in the Air appeared to be a large manuscript of disjointed novellas, where a tragedy occurred in one page, only to be solved in less than two subsequent pages. The story never flowed and at times the dialogue distracted, where I had to reread the same page more than once in order to tell who was speaking.

Unfortunately and in my humble opinion, Secrets in the Air was not a keeper.
