This book features Zoe, a flight attendant whose love life is in a drought. Her best friend pushes her to be more spontaneous, hoping she’ll find a new love … or at least a new lover. While Zoe is enjoying a beautiful Hawaiian resort, she encounters gorgeous Mason, who happens to be a pilot. They have strong chemistry, which leads to a one-night stand. That night/morning of passion leads to her pregnancy, and the story unfolds from there.
While the premise of this story had a lot of potential, its execution fell very short.What this book lacks most is detail. There wasn’t much character development, so it felt as if they were all just going through the motions. Without more depth, the reader is forced to take their actions at face value, which doesn’t always seem plausible. As emotionally charged as this story could have been, it constantly left me wanting more. Even when there was a plot twist, Mason and Zoe’s responses and dialogue were predictable and unrealistic.
I’d give this book 2 stars because the story premise is intriguing. I found myself continuing to read, hoping that it would get more enticing. And to be fair, the introduction of a wife late in the book had me excited until I read how it turned out. This is more of a novella and it often felt rushed to a resolution. I think this could be a great book if it were longer and really took time to develop it.
There was a bonus book included with this one, but I didn’t read it. If it’s more of the same, I doubt I’d enjoy it. Unfortunately, I can’t recommend this book.
