This Top Gun homage wraps up with an emotionally satisfying conclusion

Classified AMAZONClassified by Brooke Blaine & Ella Frank

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Full review tomorrow when I’m at the laptop.


This was a tension-packed final entry in the story of Panther and Solo and it delivered on both the emotional highs and the sensual.

There’s a relationship wobble which brings additional drama to the plot and it totally worked for me as a medium by which to introduce the level of doubt needed to create a stumbling block on the way to final happiness.

Panther and Solo, aka Grant and Mateo, are as scorchingly hot as they have been in the first two books, but there’s way more emotional investment in Classified and I loved how both men were allowed to be vulnerable.

As this is basically a Top Gun homage, there is loads of detailing on the final few weeks at the Elite pilot training centre and I liked where Brooke and Ella took that particular plot line, it was a satisfying conclusion.

But, as I’ve said in my other reviews of this series, I really don’t think it needed to be broken up into three books. Each individual part really was just a single chapter in the overall trilogy of story narrative.

That’s just a personal view though. Each individual book works, although there is a cliffhanger at the end of book one, and the release dates between them have been short enough to not lead to too much frustration.
