5 Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Oh my, my insides went all gooey with this book. Graham is totally sexy, a smooth talker and oh so sexy. I just couldn't get enough of him.
Marianne Rice is a brand new author to me. I am so glad I found this book Staying Grounded. From page one I was once again drawn into a world I wish I could be a part of.
The book's title to me says so much about what it is really about both figuratively and literally. Graham is a pilot who gets grounded after a situation in the airport and goes back home to get away from the media and to seek the clearance he needs to get back in the air. Maggie is a therapist who was hired by the airlines to talk to and clear Graham from his "anger issues". When the two meet the chemistry between the two can not be denied.
Both Graham and Maggie have issues with relationships and commitment. Past experiences have been what holds them both back. Will they be able to get away from the past to move forward? Get your copy to find out.
Staying Grounded is a sweet romance with a side of hot steamy sex - I especially loved the office scene...just damn Maggie...that's all I'm gonna say. Great job Marianne Rice I loved the story of Graham and Maggie to pieces.

Graham Riley enjoys the laid-back freedom of a pilot’s life—until one choice puts his career in jeopardy…
Graham loves his job—it allows him to escape his troubled past and the stigma of being a murderer’s son. But after an altercation with a drunk passenger is posted on social media, he's forced to go on administrative leave until his name can be cleared. To get his wings back, he must attend anger management classes, and to avoid the media frenzy near his home base in Texas, he heads to Rocky Harbor, Maine.
Responsible therapist Maggie O’Fallon wants a stable relationship with a man who’s not going anywhere…
Maggie grew up with parents who were never around, physically or emotionally. Needing steadiness in her life and in a relationship, she only dates men with normal jobs. But when Graham walks into her office and flashes his charming steel-blue eyes at her, she's at a loss for words. Torn between her ethics and her heart, Maggie asks Graham to see a different therapist so they can explore the chemistry between them.
He has everything she’s been looking for—except stability…
Maggie touches something deep within Graham and he panics, pushing her away, too scared to face his feelings. But when a private investigator threatens to discredit not only Graham, but Maggie’s practice as well, he is faced with two choices. Fight…or take flight.
Battling a lawsuit and his heart, Graham must decide what’s more important—the life he thought he wanted…or Maggie. Maggie might be the only thing that will ever help Graham
