Turbulence: An Extreme Love Story; It's time to lose your emotional baggage by Jordan M Alexander is the follow-up to the well-received first book, I Love You, Send Money, about the unlucky in love protagonist, Alexis. Like its predecessor, Turbulence is non-fiction that reads in the first person present, giving it all the hallmarks of a novel. Alexis Jordain is back and, despite being fleeced financially, she is dating again. The big fish this time is American pilot Jack Moreau, a 24-hour fling she met in Hawaii while waiting for James, who has resurfaced for more. Alexis is uncertain at first, but she ultimately dives back in—and swims across a shark-infested ocean to try to make the relationship work, even when it feels like she's drowning.
“Most fights are really protests over emotional disconnection. Underneath all the distress, partners are desperate to know: Are you there for me?”
Like she did in book one, Jordan M Alexander delivers with book two, Turbulence. The chapters all begin with mood indicators, charting where she is traveling to (and there's a lot of locations to be had here!), what she's packed, what her look is, and what she's listening to. The narrative, which is deliciously acerbic and positively Alexis, is interspersed with emails, messages, and diary entries. More than just a commercial pilot, Jack definitely takes Alexis on an emotional ride that frequently made me want to shake them both. But Alexis is a grown woman with enough experience to handle some, 'ahem', turbulence, and as she continues to prove in this memoir, she is unshakable, unsinkable, and unstoppable.
