Kyle Kingston-Moore has a reputation.

Adrenaline seeker. Commitment-phobe. Gigolo of the skies.

He’s worked tirelessly to make a success out of Sensational Skydives, on occasion providing extra services to deliver the ultimate jump experience. The adrenaline helps him forget the loneliness and the gaping hole left in his heart. When the rush wears off, he’s on the hunt again—a vicious circle of avoidance.

Kalani Hart knows all about avoidance.

Wide-open spaces. Social situations. Uncontrolled environments.

For years, fear has crippled Kalani’s attempts to lead a normal life after a random attack that tore her family apart. Finally, Kalani is on her way to recovery. She knows she needs to face her nightmares, but taking the plunge is easier said than done. When her therapist challenges her to take on skydiving, item number one on her bucket list, Kalani has to decide if she’s truly ready to take charge of her life.

Will one tandem jump with Kyle be the key to Kalani getting her life back, or will they both find themselves stranded in a place where their hearts decide what happens next?

When the adrenaline is this high, anything can happen.

In Tandem by Jennider Ryder, after losing two people she cared about, Kalani Hart retreated from the world, never venturing out until absolutely necessary. Now she's finally getting back out in the world and determined to cross off items on her list to prove she's ready to start living again. However, crossing off the first item on her list proves harder than she thought, but luckily Kyle Kingston-Moore is determined to help her succeed. Will Kalani and Kyle take a chance on each other to finally heal from their pasts, or will they lose their chance at happy ever after because the past can't be easily forgotten?

This is a very emotional but captivating story, even though I was wasn't sure whether I liked how the story kept going between the past and the present, but I must admit that the further I got into this book the more it made sense for Ms. Ryder to pen the story this way, as it gives readers wonderful knowledge of just how much this hero and heroine have been through in the past to make them do the things they have to cope with the losses they've suffered in their lives. Will Kalani and Kyle be able to help each other heal from their pasts? 

As for the dialogue, it was intense due to everything these two have been through in their lives. While Kyle is all about forgetting what happened in his life and moving forward by selling himself the way he does, Kalani has avoided getting on with her life by closing herself off from everyone except her mom. Will she ever be able to get her life back to how it was before she lost two people who were very important to her? Moreover, the heroine is resilient and courageous and I liked that she didn't give up on crossing the items off her list, no matter how long it took her to do them. I also liked how she put her trust in the hero, especially after the betrayal of her ex. While the hero, he's confident, know what he wants, and I liked that he treated Kalani differently to the women he's been with in his past after his marriage dissolved. She's special and he's determined to win her over. I also liked his passion for his job and the decisions he makes because he no longer wants to be the broken man he was after the lose he suffered that earned him a reputation as an adrenaline-seeking, commitment-phobe that will have women flying high in more ways than one. 

Overall, Ms. Ryder has delivered a really good read in this story where the chemistry between this couple was heady, convincing and instant from the moment they meet; the romance was delightful and had me liking how these two help each other to heal from their pasts; and the ending had me worried for Kalani and Kyle because of what happens to them. Will everything work out for the best? However, it was the epilogue that wrapped this story up nicely, as these two had me smiling because of how happy they are together and because of what Kyle proposes for while they're away. I would recommend Tandem by Jennifer Ryder, if you enjoy books by authors LJ Shen, Carmen Jenner, Sawyer Bennett and CD Reiss.
