Heat Level: Sensual
Publisher: Penguin Group
Ava wants to settle down and the only way to do that is to quit her job as a flight attendant. She promises herself one last trip but nothing is ever as easy as one last thing. She is stuck on the flight with Jack, the jerk of a pilot she hates. To make matters worst, the flight has to land due to an emergency and the two are stuck at a resort together over the weekend.
I really do love me an enemies to lovers trope. I find myself searching for them a lot now a days. So my excitement was in ten folds when I realized that this story was going to deliver just that. While it has the hate part down, it just resonated a little mean-spirited in my opinion. The two often times get real nasty with one another. The main character especially since she is so judgement but she is not exactly a saint. I’ll get to her in a minute.
While the enemies to lovers theme wasn’t quite executed properly, I didn’t take issue with it as much as I did the fact that the heroine is involved in another relationship. I normally don’t like when authors do this in my romance. I like a clean meet up and brewing romance. I can tolerate it in some circumstances but the author just tells us that Ava no longer loves her man and that is that. How can I buy that she fell out of love?
The entire time she is in dislike of Jack, Ava is criticizing his man whore ways as if she is not involved in a relationship. I do understand because her fiancé ends up being a real douche but she is quite harsh in her judgement of the hero and her got a little situation going on.
I loved the author’s writing style and delivery of quick banter. I loved how the secondary characters all tried to help push Jack and Ava together. Despite not loving this book, I would love to try this author out again.
Overall, this is a quiet read with some funny moments to read on a rainy day.
