Fight or Flight by Samantha Young
A series of chance encounters leads to a sizzling new romance from the New York Times bestselling 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….
Samantha Young is a go-to author to me. It was not a surprised that I LOVED this book.
What I love more about her books, is that I enjoy reading about Scottish characters, and she is very genuine on that. Whenever I would recommend a book of hers, someone always asked if the Scottish aspect of the book was real or amateurish. Ladies, this is the real deal!
When Ava Breevort thinks her days cannot get any worst, she meets Scotsman Caleb Scott. I guess it’s funny since now I register that Scott connection to his name, but anyway. Caleb it’s a man of his own and he manages to make Ava’s day a LOT worst. From their first exchanged words to them sharing a seat next to each other on the plane.
They soon discover that their banter is filled with sexual tension and when Caleb proposes they take it out of their system while he is stranded in Boston, Ava thinks the decision lightly. What can happen to a fling with a sexy stranger? The rude attitude towards Ava has it’s logic, because he thinks she’s just a spoiled rich girl.
During this book I legit laughed out loud and had a smile that made my face hurt.
