Publisher's Summary

A series of chance encounters leads to a sizzling new romance from the New York Times best-selling 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....

A Jamie Malcolm Mackenzie Fraser for 2018

Ok ... so I am not too frivolous save for a light read here & there...& I NEVER stop what I’m doing to just listen. But I did just that for the last 2 hrs of this one. You made my Friday night Samantha Young. I love all your reads. Can’t wait for the next.

Fight or Flight

Ahh YES! I loved this book from the beginning to the end. This felt like a Samantha Young book. I loved the back and forth between the characters the do they like each other or do they hate each other.

It was fun and light-hearted and deep when it needed to be. I very much loved everything about Ava and Caleb. I want more this is going to be an audiobook I listen to again and again.

Ava’s past is a pretty big part of why she surrounds herself with the people that she does and I like that they are not who you would normally think they would be like her one client how she takes her under her wing or her out there best friend. Just not people you think of when you get to know who Ava is and I think that is what makes her so much more than what you see. She sees passed what you look like to the person you are so it’s it any wonder that’s what she wants others to do too?

Caleb is a Scot ohhhh yeah so you know what that means that delicious accent that I love so very much. 100% it makes him hotter if that is even possible. He really has a stick up his butt, but as we learn more about him you see that he uses it as a barrier between himself and people he thinks might hurt him.

I am hoping Caleb’s bro gets a book because a painter with a past like his let me swoon now. :)

The narration is phenomenal a home run for me, I love that she can so the male accent so freaking well that it gives me shivers! I want more, please!

Wow

I think i forgot I had a family while listening to this one. Wow. Angelica Lee nailed it. Her narration of Ava was incredible but her accent for Caleb was spot on. Ava was funny witty and vulnerable. Caleb was hard - but softened by her. And the steamy hotness.....😲. This book is one I would listen to again. A definite top on my list of best reads this year.

Fight or Flight

I chose to do the audio of this because I knew it would take me forever to get to it otherwise. I think I made a good decision too because the way the narrator did her accents was very pleasing and added a bit more to this story.

I enjoyed the story of Ava and Caleb. While there were a couple of unfortunate moments, I thought this was a rather light and oftentimes fun read. Caleb reminded me of Braden (ODS) a bit with his temper. Loved Ava though, she owned her sh*t well.

Fun read!!!

Angelica Lee is a really great narrator she brings books to life like no other and gives all the Scottish colloquialisms a try. The book was a funny read at times and it did make me laugh a lot with all the back and forth and cheeky one liners.Of course with most romance books you need a bit of heartache and Samantha Young didn't disappoint!!!
Fun story fun book and great narration.
