It’s love at first flight…
I’m terrified of flying, but that’s exactly what I plan on doing. This year, I will fly in more ways than one.
It all starts with a text that pushes me out of my comfort zone and gives me the courage I need to quit my job and book a flight to Greece.
On the plane, I meet Carter Starr, a sexy stranger who makes me soar to heights I never expected to reach.
One look at him and my heart turns over. We’ve never met before, but his kiss, his touch, the taste of his name on the tip of my tongue…It just feels right.
Now I’m terrified of my own feelings, feelings for a man I barely know, a man who sweeps me off my feet and whisks me away. Carter Starr may be my one-way ticket to a fresh start, but what if it’s all too good to be true?

My Thoughts:

This is a fast-paced contribution to the Flirt Clubs collaboration of New Year’s resolutions. We are following Ava Raine who has worked right through Christmas, and her boss is expecting a report at 6 am on the 1st of January. This means her plans of time off and relaxing on New Year’s Eve are out the window. However, she has had enough and throws caution to the wind. She wants a new start for the new year, and that means life attitude and career. She books on the first flight to Greece and doesn’t look back.
The entire story is written from Ava’s point of view, so we do get to know what she is thinking completely. She meets Carter on her flight, and there is an instant attraction. I did feel, though, with the way it was written and her constant hesitation that he was more into her than she was him. He came across as a bit full-on, and she didn’t seem bothered by him at all. She seemed a lot younger than 35, as she seemed very vulnerable and meek. I couldn’t understand how they spent an entire flight with one another and didn’t use that time to get to know one another if there was such an intense attraction; instead, they just slept.
This book had a very good start, and I felt invested in Ava’s life and the outcome to her decisions, however, the story became too unrealistic towards the end. Who flies in a cocktail dress?
