I received an ARC of this book in exchange for honest review.
Classified is the final book in the Elite Series. This book gave a satisfying, fitting conclusion for Mateo (Solo) and Grant’s (Panther) whirlwind story. Book starts off with them walking into the gala as a couple.
Solo and Panther each came a long way during their time in The Elite, and I enjoyed being on the journey with them. Now being on a crucial point in relationship they have decided their path. Where can their relationship go? What is in store for them at the end of their course? The outcome of the course was predictable but what’s post that was bigger question and we got a very satisfying answer for that.
In this book we see more of their sensual side together, their feelings for each other, and their love which will bring out the best in each other. They grow over the course of their relationship, which was beautiful and entertaining.
Plot moved in a faster pace. Totally loved the interaction between Whiplash and Houdini. Even though some things were predictable writing style made this book impossible to put down. Liked the way team supported Solo and Panther and team camaraderie. The flying scenes were also a complete treat.
Epilogue was damn awesome. I was enjoying it to the core and it got concluded as “Classified”.🙍😈
All in all, I totally enjoyed the trilogy. I made a superb choice in picking this book for my first diverse read. It’s well written with good amount of tension, competition, adrenaline, love along with hot fighter pilots.
Blurb as per Goodreads:
Classified is the final book of the Elite Series and should only be read after book one, Danger Zone, and book two, Need for Speed.
They train to serve their country.
They strive to be the best.
But only a select few can be…

CALL SIGN: SOLO
Reckless, arrogant, and bold, Solo is as known in the U.S. Navy for his bad-boy reputation as he is for his skills as a fighter pilot. It’s a surprise to his peers, then, when he’s chosen to train and compete at the most prestigious naval aviation academy in the world.
1.Kick everyone’s ass.
2.Do whatever it takes to win.
3.Do your best to distract the competition.
4.Especially when that competition is a gorgeous blue-eyed perfectionist who makes your blood run hot.

CALL SIGN: PANTHER
Disciplined, smart, and confident, Panther can’t afford not to play by the rules. As the son of a top Navy commander, all eyes are on him, and being anything less than number one is unacceptable.
1.Keep it safe in the air.
2.Prove you’re re than Commander Hughes’s son.
3.No distractions. Stay focused.
4.Don’t fall for your competition—especially not the rebellious heartbreaker with lips made for sinning.
In the heat of the hot California sun, tempers flare and desires ignite as Solo and Panther try to resist their attraction while fighting to be number one.
With passion this intense, the question remains:
Who’s gonna come out on top?
