When Jessie Evans, a Georgia Southern University cheerleader, leaves for her best friend’s wedding the last thing she expects is for the seat next to her to be taken. After all, she’d only canceled Seat 2A hours prior after catching her boyfriend cheating.
Kendal Vargas, son of a Spanish emigrant fashion guru, is on his way to Whistler for a “mancation”. Running to buy a neck pillow before his flight, Kendal bumps into Jessie Evans. Kendal is in a hurry. Kendal does not stop to help her. Kendal forgot his neck pillow and the plane is about to leave and hey—who could travel without a neck pillow?
Charmed by Jessie’s beauty, and watching her board his very plane, Kendal takes a whim and changes his seat to one he hopes would be next to her. Jessie ignores Kendal’s attempt to be chatty but when their connecting flight gets canceled overnight, the pair has a chance to make a real connection.
Seven years later, Jessie bumps into Kendal in the produce aisle of a Portland grocery store. No neck pillow is involved, except there is a beautiful little girl who looks just like him. Fate has given them another shot but will Kendal’s whims keep them apart?
Review by Cheryl
This is a story of what happens when your past collides with your present.
When I started reading this book I’ll be honest it took me a while to actually get into it as I found it to be quite slow paced which was a theme that continued throughout, I know you need to be aware of the how’s and why’s of how things were the they were but really a lot could’ve been cut however I persevered with the book as it promised to be a really good storyline.
According to the blurb I read I was expecting there to have been a child conceived between the lead female Jessie and lead male Kendal but I was disappointed to find out that wasn’t the case. The storyline of what promised to be a great book was there but the way in which it was delivered was a touch disappointing. I read something that was completely different than what I expected it to be, it could have been a bit more faster paced a little less repetitive and apart from a certain changing room scene a whole lot more sexier.
I’m afraid it’s only 2 stars out of 5 from me.
