Description

A series of chance encounters leads to a sizzling new romance from the New York Times best-selling 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....

Fight or Flight

Ahh YES! I loved this book from the beginning to the end. This felt like a Samantha Young book. I loved the back and forth between the characters the do they like each other or do they hate each other.

It was fun and light-hearted and deep when it needed to be. I very much loved everything about Ava and Caleb. I want more this is going to be an audiobook I listen to again and again.

Ava’s past is a pretty big part of why she surrounds herself with the people that she does and I like that they are not who you would normally think they would be like her one client how she takes her under her wing or her out there best friend. Just not people you think of when you get to know who Ava is and I think that is what makes her so much more than what you see. She sees passed what you look like to the person you are so it’s it any wonder that’s what she wants others to do too?

Caleb is a Scot ohhhh yeah so you know what that means that delicious accent that I love so very much. 100% it makes him hotter if that is even possible. He really has a stick up his butt, but as we learn more about him you see that he uses it as a barrier between himself and people he thinks might hurt him.

I am hoping Caleb’s bro gets a book because a painter with a past like his let me swoon now. :)

The narration is phenomenal a home run for me, I love that she can so the male accent so freaking well that it gives me shivers! I want more, please!

Holy Macaroni!

I am SOOOO proud of myself: I fought an upward battle to the end of 'Fight or Flight' so that I could give you a completely informed review....

It was TERRIBLE!
Imagine every trope of every romance ever written cobbled together into a single book and you can only begin to conceive the mess that is this story. The last third of the story consists of cliche piled on top of cliche until the weight of the cliches on top made those on the bottom squish and ooze out the sides.

The prose itself was a roller coaster ride; generally passable with a few passages seemingly written by a seventh grade fangirl while the whole thing is lightly peppered with head scratchingly brilliant turns of phrase and observations. The writing was so uneven, I triple checked to make certain there was only one author.

My ability to make it to the end rests entirely on the strength of a most valiant effort made by reader Angelica Lee who, despite the facts that her Scots accent is decidedly jobby and she can't pronounce the word 'forward', deserves a medal for making Fight or Flight bearable enough to finish.

Okay, Fine. I understand that books have become consumables like french fries or smoothies but honestly, shouldn't we expect more? More not only from writers and publishers, but more from ourselves? What has happened to our fiction? This book has a 4.5 rating from my fellow readers and the last third of the book didn't even make sense. I'm baffled by this- I don't enjoy saying that a book is terrible, particularly not one that makes me think the author can do much better (if she were paid more? if she had more time? if our reviews provided honest guidance?). I don't want Proust or Nabokov while I'm driving or scrubbing floors, but this highly rated novel crossed a line for me.

A Jamie Malcolm Mackenzie Fraser for 2018

Ok ... so I am not too frivolous save for a light read here & there...& I NEVER stop what I’m doing to just listen. But I did just that for the last 2 hrs of this one. You made my Friday night Samantha Young. I love all your reads. Can’t wait for the next.

Reader drove me crazy

I stuck with the book for the sake of the story, but I couldn’t stand the reader’s voice! She sounded pissed off throughout the whole book and it definitely distracted me from enjoying the story.

I loved it!!

The perfect blend of angst, romance and passion. The language wasn’t unnecessarily raw, and the story flowed... worth every credit...

All the Feels

This book had many of the same ingredients in other romances: hot guy, good sex, decent story. It stood apart from other books by communicating the emotions, high and low, better than most. The characters were honest with each other, and I felt that the author relayed that same honesty to the reader by allowing us to feel the pain and joy along with the characters. Definitely on my "will listen again" list, and definitely credit worthy.

Loved it!

Samantha Young is an exceptional romance author. This book was one of my favorites by her. What I like about her novels is how well she describes the feelings of her characters. The story was a little unusual, which I especially appreciated. Great job!

Rom-Com at It's Best

This was a super fun, sexy, sensitive, and sweet read. Ava and Caleb meet in a rush to get out of Arizona. Caleb starts off as a real jerk by cutting in front of Ava to take the last first class seat. Well, Ava just can't get away from Caleb in this airport because as they are waiting Caleb steals the last seat in an eatery and cuts the line to get coffee before the flight. Ava and Caleb butt heads all the way to a one night stand while they are waiting for flights to get back to Boston. Once in Boston fate just will not leave them along when a mutual friend attempts to match make them. Fun and sexy times are had by all but they are both holding on to secrets. I really enjoyed this story; however, I did find some of the wrap ups to quick and skimmed over. I would love a spin off for some of the other characters.

This specific video review will be included in the December 2018 wrap-up.

Cute!

This was a cute story. I really liked it. Wasn't my favorite, but certainly better than a lot of romance novels.

Depth, humor, and incredible chemistry!

I was enraptured by this book. The character development is exceptional. I didn’t expect this from the premise alone, but the author does a a fantastic job of creating robust, sympathetic yet complex characters all around. I was truly moved by this story, and I thoroughly enjoyed the protagonists’ sizzling chemistry all the way through! The narrator does a great job of being these characters to life.

Lispelt die Sprecherin ein wenig?

Ich bin keine Muttersprachlerin im Englischen, aber ich meine, dass die Sprecherin lispelt - wenn auch nur wenig, aber es störte mich.
Die Geschichte selbst war meines Erachtens nicht besonders spannend. Das neckische Hin und Her der Hauptpersonen war für mich nicht witzig oder frech, sondern eimfach sinnleeres um sich selbst Kreisen. Aber allzuviel Tiefgang und Raffinesse hatte ich bei dieser Sorte Unterhaltungsroman auch nicht erwartet. Habs zuende gehört, gäbe es eine Fortsetzung, würde ich diese vermutlich aber eher nicht kaufen.
