Available Sept. 12, 2016
eARC Provided by publisher through Netgalley
It was meant to be a one-night stand. One wicked night with an irresistibly sexy passenger. That’s all Air Marshal Gage Michaels can afford--his career comes before everything else. Too bad the snowpocalpyse of the century has different plans for him and Abby Winters. Before the night's over, they find themselves snowed in at the most luxurious hotel in the city.
Abby’s scouting job of a NYC penthouse should be quick, simple, and definitely shouldn’t include a sexy-as-hell man messing up the 3000 count sheets that will be featured in her company’s next blockbuster hit. Not when she’s up for a promotion that could skyrocket her entire career in the film industry. Still, she can't refuse what the weather gods so obviously want her to have. She'll give in, just this once.
Leaving is tougher than either of them could have imagined. But they’re two people who have nothing in common, living on opposite coasts. There’s no way they can ever be together. Right?
I don't know if i have ever read a book about a one night stand that starts on a airplane before. That was what initially attracted me to this book as it was something for me that was not a typical book for me. I also saw it on the home page of Goodreads.com reviewed by another reader. Air Marshall Gage Michaels is leading a life with a job that is tough on relationships. After his last one ends in disaster he's done for now. He's too busy traveling with work and helping his sister raise her daughter. Then he meets Abby Winters on a plane while off duty and things get intense quickly. They connect pretty quick. Abby is trying to make her mark in a high pressure job and that means no fun until meeting Gage tempts her. Throwing caution to the wind they hook up. One night turns into more when all flights are grounded and they are stuck after a snow storm. For me this book started out so good. I enjoyed the writing the characters and the plot. While it was still overall a very good read for me it kind of fizzled in the middle for a bit. There is only so much sex two people can have in a couple days. Much as i love a good sex scene too many is a turn off. Many good emotional scenes through out but the meh parts let me down. The ending brought it back and it finished strong.
