Publisher Description

A series of chance encounters leads to a sizzling new romance from the New York Times bestselling author of the On Dublin Street series.

The universe is conspiring against Ava Breevort. As if flying back to Phoenix to bury a childhood friend wasn't hell enough, a cloud of volcanic ash traveling from overseas delayed her flight back home to Boston. Her last ditch attempt to salvage the trip was thwarted by an arrogant Scotsman, Caleb Scott, who steals a first class seat out from under her. Then over the course of their journey home, their antagonism somehow lands them in bed for the steamiest layover Ava's ever had. And that's all it was--until Caleb shows up on her doorstep.

When pure chance pulls Ava back into Caleb's orbit, he proposes they enjoy their physical connection while he's stranded in Boston. Ava agrees, knowing her heart's in no danger since a) she barely likes Caleb and b) his existence in her life is temporary. Not long thereafter Ava realizes she's made a terrible error because as it turns out Caleb Scott isn't quite so unlikeable after all. When his stay in Boston becomes permanent, Ava must decide whether to fight her feelings for him or give into them. But even if she does decide to risk her heart on Caleb, there is no guarantee her stubborn Scot will want to risk his heart on her....

Pretty good

A little cliched, but still a good read. Ava and harper’s relationship stood out and I wish the author took more time to uncover their backstories to add some depth .

I wanted to love it! [SPOILERS]

I really wanted to like this book, but [SPOLIER ALERT] there was this weird underlying vilification of abortion at the end that was meant to explain why Caleb was so cruel. It felt cheap to me, not to mention tone deaf, to claim that his ex “killed their baby,” and that’s the reason he was so messed up. She had an abortion without telling him, which is a super terrible thing to do if you’ve already brought the other person into it. But ultimately it was this woman’s body and life, and she didn’t want a baby, and that’s the thing she was vilified for, which is absolutely not okay to do. And Ava bought right into it.

That sat the wrong way with me, but overall I liked Ava and Caleb and was rooting for them.

A splendid read!

3.5 stars

This was an entertaining read. It had a good mix of light, steamy, and depth. Ava and Caleb had that passionate strong connection. These two went back and forth between enemies to friends to enemies to lovers to friends, etc. Whew these two were giving me whiplash. As the story went on you just never knew what they would do but it made for a fascinating read. I enjoyed getting to know Ava and Caleb as the story progressed and they got to know one another-there was so much more to them than the initial meeting. This book had a lot of different facets to it and is so much more than two people with great chemistry. And I liked them all as they gave the book a more deeper feeling. Overall, this was a splendid read.
