The Unhoneymooners meets The Hating Game in this breezy debut romantic comedy about life--and love--30,000 feet above the ground.
After ten years as a flight attendant, Ava Greene is poised to hang up her wings and finally put down roots. She's got one trip left before she bids her old life farewell, and she plans to enjoy every second of it. But then she discovers that former pilot Jack Stone--the absurdly gorgeous, ridiculously cocky man she's held a secret grudge against for years--is on her flight. And he has the nerve to flirt with her, as if he doesn't remember the role he played in the most humiliating night of her life. Good thing she never has to see him again after they land....
But when their plane encounters mechanical problems, what should have been a quick stop at the Belize airport suddenly becomes a weekend layover. Getting stuck on a three-hour flight with her nemesis was bad enough. Being stranded with him at a luxury resort in paradise? Even with the sultry breeze and white sand to distract her, it will take all the rum punch in the country to drown out his larger-than-life presence.
Yet the more time Ava spends with him under the hot Caribbean sun, the more she begins to second-guess everything she thought she knew about him...and everything she thought she wanted from her life. And all too soon, she might have to choose between keeping her feet on the ground and her head in the clouds....
Waldon debuts with a breezy enemies-to-lovers romp with just enough heart to keep it grounded. After almost a decade as a flight attendant, Ava Greene relies on her fiancé, Alexander, to add some much-needed stability to her life. Having agreed to leave her job once they're married, Ava prepares for her final flight and the coveted 24-hour layover in Belize that's sure to make it memorable. But Ava's vision of a perfect last trip is ruined by the presence of playboy flight attendant Jack Stone, with whom Ava butts heads at every turn. Their squabbling is delightful—and when Ava decides to play matchmaker for two of her coworkers, she reluctantly enlists Jack's help. Over the course of the trip, Ava's reminded of how much she loves her job and realizes she's not ready to give it up, leading to a heartbreaking call that ends her relationship with Alexander. Meanwhile, a maintenance delay adds an extra day to the tropical layover, giving Ava and Jack even more time to bond as Ava discovers that he's not the bad guy she thought he was. Though the conclusion's slightly rushed, the couple's sparkling chemistry and flirtatious fighting make this sing. Readers craving an armchair getaway need look no further.

Incredible Easy Read Book
I absolutely loved this book. I couldn’t put it down from day one. The author did a fantastic job drawing you in and providing the perfect mix of comedy, romance, and wanderlust. There were several times that I caught myself laughing out loud. This is such a great easy read book, especially, for summertime! Cannot recommend enough!
Lacking chemistry and sexual tension
It built up and up and up but never climaxed for me. Good story but just kind of ended without much substance or resolve.
