The crash of Flight HA1710 brings life into focus for Phil Stewart. Before meeting Davin Tierney, love seemed only a myth to Phil, but one night in New York City changed everything, giving him something he didn’t even know existed. But Phil wasn’t comfortable saying I love you. During the crash, Davin suffers a brain injury, leaving him in a coma. Phil wonders how love can be so cruel to give him Davin and then take him away so suddenly.
Davin never intended to give Phil a second look, but Phil broke through barriers and made amazing overtures before stalling on the word love. The crash changes everything, and he’s no longer willing to play it safe, but can Phil actually change from the playboy Davin first met?

My Rating: 4 of 5 Stars
I remember Phil Stewart. He had a cameo role in Retrograde (Flight HA1710 #1) where it showed him in misery and despair. Not knowing how his love Davin was fairing. Will he survive? Will he be allowed to say one last good bye? I had wondered what happened to them and after reading Velocity, I do now.
Velocity is a story that merges past with present so there are quite a few scenes where a flashback comes in. The flashbacks give us a back story of how Phil and Davin met in a bar and found an unexpected love. The horrors Phil go through, not knowing if the love of his life was going to make it or not, it is all here now.
Sara York efficiently delivers the pain, sorrow and finally happiness of both men in the midst of a plane crash incident that killed a few and changed the lives of those who survived. She is able to give us readers the full picture of that glimpsed at character in the first book, giving that first installment a kind of closure which, though unnecessary, makes the whole read more complete.
This is a love story. It is a tale of survival. It is tale that shows these two men, Phil specifically, that life is just a short sigh in the universe and if he did not do something, he may just have the chance losing Davin.
Excellent afternoon read.
