After reading the blurb I was intrigued, but the more I read it just didn't seem to live up to what I thought it was going to be.
I think after the start I was hopeful, but both Kendal and Jessie annoyed me in equal measures and both seem immature.
I was glad they got their happy ending, but the book just seemed to stop.
Having never read a Dela book before I was unsure what to expect from the author. Telling the story of 2 seat mates on a plane ride to Vancouver and their accidental reunion 7 years later. Feisty 2B is heartbroken and heading to her best friends wedding when a stranger in the airport knocks her over, still reeling from her boyfriends betrayal being knocked over is the last straw. Especially when she finds out her seat mate 2A on the plane is the man who knocked her over. Cocky 2B was struck by the beauty of the girl he knocked over in the airport and his luck is in when she's his seat mate on the plane out to Minnesota. However not having made the best first impression he spies his chance when there connecting flight to Vancouver is delayed.
Spoiler alert This book was not quite what I expected, with the blurb of a little girl that looks exactly like the hero and a 7year time gap between the hero and heroines last meeting I was expecting a ONS in the airport of maybe an induction into the mile high club during the flight, alas I was to be disappointed the pairs first sexual encounter happened towards the mid to end of the book. For me the book seemed to drag, told in Joint POV there were parts of the book that didn't necessarily need to be told from each of the leads POV maybe a paragraph and not the whole chapter. I loved the blurb it gave me the impression of a secret pregnancy and the pair reuniting after an accidental meeting.
The attraction between the 2 lead characters was of the charts and I loved the start of their connection in Vancouver with the accidental meetings. However for all the times fate put the pair together it seemed just as determined to keep the 2 apart untill coincidence in the form of sisters, new boyfriends nieces and best friends put them back in touch. Overall 3 stars for me I just couldn't make the initial connection with the book.
Whilst I thought the story started out at a fairly pedestrian pace, I wasn’t disappointed because I liked the way that Kendal and Jessie not only initially met but how that initial connection developed. But my enthusiasm was tempered when after a bump in their particular journey, they drifted apart and lost touch with each other.
By the time they reconnected years later, they weren’t the same and for me, that was a bit of an issue. I found myself more irked than I wanted to be, not all the time, just every now and again, I could feel my eyebrow raising and couldn’t help but wonder WTF. There were aspects of their behaviour that I found edging towards being a tad too childish but it wasn’t just them, some of the additional characters were far from endearing.
But apart from that particular niggle, I would say that the story has promise.
I thought I had a handle on the path the story was going to take, especially from the blurb but don’t be fooled, this author takes things off on a much different tangent. I think she flexed just enough muscle to show that she was definitely controlling the path they were on and not the other way round, but I would have liked both Jessie and Kendal to have been driving the story more, the steady pace and deliberate delivery just seemed to stilt the growth of those involved.
If you have patience and don’t expect fireworks and you will see that this is a story that grows on you, I may not have been completely blown away but I have to say that on the whole the story was a good read.
