Publisher's Summary

A memorable night of passion refuses to stay just a memory in this sizzling and scandalous romance from bestselling author T L Swan.

I was upgraded to first class on a flight from London to New York.

The food, champagne, and service were impeccable. 

The blue-eyed man sitting next to me, even better. 

He was suave and intelligent. 

We talked and laughed, and something clicked. 

Fate took over and the plane was grounded, and we had an unexpected stopover for the night.

With no plans, we made our own. 

We danced and laughed our way around Boston and had a night of crazy passion that no woman would ever forget. 

That was twelve months ago, and I haven’t heard from him - until today. 

I started a new job and met the CEO. You can imagine my surprise to see those naughty blue eyes dance with delight when he saw me across the mahogany desk. 

But I’m not that carefree girl anymore. My life has changed, I have responsibilities. 

I just got an email. 

He wants to see me in his office for a private meeting at 8:00 a.m. 

Naughty blue eyes have no place in the workplace. 

What kind of private meeting does he have in mind?

Definitely a hot story but the last third...

Overall opinion: This story started out hot and, even though it is angst heavy, was going very well for the first 60%. The heavy drama started way too early and, in Audible, lasted 3 hours. I skipped over an hour because it was so repetitive. If TL shortened the story by 2 - 3 hours, it would have been a 5-star read for me. If you like the heavy will they/won't they angst heavy, miscommunication drama that lasts for 30+% of the story, you will love this.

If it weren't for the part at 3 hours left

It had some promise. With some romance and some push and pull, some misunderstandings and some sex. But the screechy hysterical voice and actions of the female character at about 3 hours from the end of the story. I just can't. It sank like a stone for me there. I can't help that I've gotten allergic to when the female heroines in romantic stories just has to get a bit hysterical, too dumb, overreact at conflict or some drama. Especially when it often feels like it is a woman character that is well educated, smart and often level headed in almost all of the story. So she should be able to get upset, sad, angry, and reach a road bump in a story without it suddenly turning to her getting illogical, hysterical. But no, she just has to get a bit screechy and acting like a desperate ditsy character all of a sudden? Calling and texting desperately, why? And it is too bad she had to be that annoying, just had to go there. Because it would have been really good for me if it weren't for that turn at approx 3 hours left.

THE 4-STAR PERFORMANCE WAS ALL SEBASTIAN YORK!!

Why did Sebastian get top billing when I had to listen to so much/too much C. J. Bloom. The story was childish to me, no real connection to/for the characters. I got through it the fourth night. I get it was primarily a woman's point of view, but geezo pete; the female would start off a section o.k., but, then she would loose it and sounded like her character. Not only was the character immature, but the voice was too. There are some 25 year old females around who don't act 15 and going out on a first date. And the complaints about Seb York's voice sounding to old for 20 something men, in my biased view, I always preferred mature sounding men, even when I was 17. I might recommend this listen to someone whose tastes I know!!!

The Stopover

Normally I don’t review a DNF book but I listened to 9hrs and 28 mins of the 12 hr and 58 min book so I am going to review and rate it.

I loved the beginning I was hoping it was going to be interesting and intriguing and it was until it turned in to just like every other billionaire book.

Actually it got worse, it was getting close to childish drama and I just can’t with that. I was rolling my eyes so much but the end if I had made myself listen I would have ended up hating it all.

I did love the narration, if it had been anyone else but those two I probably would have stopped after the first eye roll.

Very little of Sebastian York!

Ok, let’s get this straight. I buy my books based on the narrator and Sebastian York is my favorite. There is VERY little of his narration in this book. Most of it comes near the end of the book. If you look at the picture of the book you will notice HIS name is listed first. I would think that would indicate he narrates at least 1/2 of the book. No. His part is about 15%. The book had potential but I found myself playing it at 1.5x, slowing it down ONLY to hear S.Y. Sexy voice. (The female narrator did ok, just that she read to much of the book). I wish there was something posted in the description that tell the potential buyer just what % of the book is read by each narrator. If there was I certainly wouldn’t have bought THIS one.

A Movie Worthy Read!

This book has it all and, it’s a can’t put down until the end kind of book. It has ruined me for all other books. Loved the characters. This storyline; never misses a beat, The narrative performances by Sebastian and C.J are phenomenal!

They meet on a plane, they have an undeniable attraction, they spend one night together, part ways and than, fate brings them back together and life’s never the same for these two main characters.

This book is RED HOT, Jaw dropping, every man woman sex and, romance fantasy. So, if you can’t handle this kind of book, you might want to look within another great romance category such as; Religious and Inspirational.

I loved this book. It’s my new number one favorite and I can’t wait for the next book in this series. A big 10 Stars to T. L. Swan! What a writer!

Don't expect to hear a lot of Sebastian York

The story was riveting and addictive. Don't expect to hear a lot of Sebastian York as the book is mostly narrated by the female narrator. She was great but I expected to hear much more of York.

That voice

The Narrator is terrible. I can't even listen to her. Her male voice sounds like she needs s gallon of water. All of her reads with emmotion are opposite of what it should sound like it. When reading the thoughts of the character she sounds sexy and bedroom like. When reading the characters dialog she throws her voice like a teenager, then moves into a gruff dry vocal like she has been at the bar all night and smoked 4 packs of cigarettes. I called and sent the audio back. She ruined the booked.....sorry lady

I HAVE MIXED FEELINGS ABOUT THIS BOOK

The romance between Emily and Jameson started during their unplanned stopover in Boston after their flight to New York from London was canceled due to a snowstorm in New York. It was supposed to be a one night stand and they did not expect to see each other again. It would have ended there except a year later, Emily was hired by Miles Media, a large publishing company owned by the Miles family and headed by no other than Jameson himself as its CEO. The on again-off again relationships, if you can call it that, and the story itself made me laugh, hate/love Jameson (for switching his personality from Jim the lover boy to Jameson the obnoxious CEO and back), yell at Emily and blush at some very descriptive steamy scenes.

So why do I have mixed feelings about this book? Because there are some things that just didn't make sense to me. Why did Lara Aspin (the female villain) sell her laptop computer without erasing its content, not to mention for a measly $100? It seemed to me that T L Swan had to shorten the novel and gave us a quick solution to Jameson's problem. The author never told us who has been giving/selling “breaking news” to Miles Media’s fiercest competitor. Some might say that it is implied, but that does not satisfy me. Again, Emily was described as an intelligent and strong woman, yet she turned into putty and horny when in the presence of Jameson. Really?

It seems to me that CJ Bloom sometimes forgets to change her female voice to a male voice when reading Jameson’s line. That made me wonder who is speaking. Sebastian York had the top billing, but he had very few lines. I was a little disappointed. Is the top billing a lure to us who like to hear Sebastian York narrate?

I got this book as a Kindle Unlimited Read and Listen. All in all, it was an enjoyable book and for the price, it is worth it.

Typical romance book

If you listen to romance you will guess every part of this book. It’s completely predictable and just when you starting getting a little suspense or thrill it will automatically solve itself. read the crossfire series instead. There’s no new story here.

Why, why, why do you do this to us? As if the books don’t do us in enough, you go and bring the characters to life and man, do these male voices do things to a girl!! Loved, loved, loved it and cannot wait for the next instalment!! Congrats girl, keep ‘em coming, thank you please!! 😘

One of the best books this year!!

I have never read this author before so I read the bio and really liked the sound of it so i have waited and waited till it was released hoping that it would not be a let down,
all I can say is that I LOVED it.

This book had me laughing, crying and gave me all the feels, ivan usually tell in the first 5 minutes of a book if it will be enjoyable to me and this had me grasped from beginning to end.
this book is beautifully written and also fantastically narrated and I know I will listen to this again and again.
🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 would give it 10 stars if I could.

Nothing new

The Same familiar storyline , rich CEO meets blue collar girl from a small town. when you've read one of these stories you've read them all. l didn't find it capturing as most books like this i have read before start and end the same way. Recommend for a first time listener to books of this nature.

A bit basic to be honest…

The sex scenes are pretty well written but that seems to be where the effort ended. Any kind of actual plot is thin on the ground, the characters are flat, dialogue seems a bit pointless most of the time. In all honestly it felt like the non-sexual bits were just fodder to get to the next saucy bit. An easy to listen to gratuitous bit of raunchy chick-lit - which will definitely be some people’s cup of tea, just wasn’t mine, sorry.

mild, but sexy

Excelent written. The smutt is mild, but sexy. The low stars is mostly because female lead accepts too much crap for my liking.

very poor story lines and character development

lazy writing,: did not develop characters bonding during "stop over" they just "danced and laughed", neither protagonists had any friends - female doesn't speak with anyone back home (except her mum) for 4 months! when experiencing "worst time of her life" female protagonist doesnt ring her mum for support. Major flaws in story: if he was worth $5Billion then he would not be flying commercial on more than one occasion. 3/4 into book there was mention of a corporate jet but never why he didn't take it. If she always wanted to work for that company she would have researched the CEO etc (esp. considering she is a journalist!) and know what they look like. Unrealistic workplace scenarios: on the top floor only two CEO/Execs work there with a receptionist who is also their PA. When all the crap was going on - where is the Manager/HR who would have got involved. What happened to Ava character - just disappears. what happened about 'fake news" ? Topics in conversations werent resolved - babies? I feel like it's a first draft and the editor should have told author to go back and include more characters and realistic story lines . and why does the narrator whisper so much?? such a bad effort in writing with predictable endings.

The writing was repetitive. The same conversations happened and then copy and pasted sections. Not great character development and sudden love is just not good enough. Have returned.

Hot, Heavy and

this book has really drawn me to TL Swan as a story teller.
this book has everything. her talent to show the romance in this book comes from a genuine place, the care she started to show to him and when we started to soften really drew you into the book.
cj bloom did an amazing job narrating both characters. I really feel there wasn't much need for Sebastian York to narrate in this book.

Far from her best work!

This book was incredibly painful from start to finish. I listened to portions of it and read other parts. It was definitely better when read but still a difficult storyline to give a crap about.

The female main character is horrible and behaves like a painful twit. She regularly commented about people insulting her intelligence but I never witnessed any intelligence to insult. The narration by CJ Bloom made her even more intolerable and had me wondering why on earth anyone would ever pay her for that performance.

The male character was not at all believable, a multi-billionaire CEO who is supposedly incredibly stressed out and overworked but sits around all day spying on a girl! Sebastian York always does a good job at narrating these nale roles but he only had a small portion of the narration.

There were times when they fought and broke up and although I'm usually a sucker for a happy ending, I genuinely hoped they would remain apart. It would've been a good twist.

I only persisted because I've read TL Swan before and typically enjoy her books. I liked the character of Tristan and wanted to get to the end so I'm up to speed for his sequel. I wouldn't waste a credit on this book though.

Not what I was hoping for.

It took me a bit to get used to CJ's accent- it's a very strong American accent. But otherwise the Narrators carried this story for me.
The story started off well- it was a great introduction to the characters, but then it started to fill with holes. Characters disappeared, she never seemed to talk to her parents, plot points weren't followed through, and then when I expected the fierce heroine to come back out we got the damsel in distress instead. I didn't understand that part. Also, the character didn't seem to have any proper knowledge of her own industry. She was so concerned with herself she didn't even acknowledge the criminal charges against her boyfriend until days later.

I'm not sure I'm a fan of TL Swan, but I won't stop trying just yet.

I love the story - the narrator (female) got on my nerves

A sexy, fun story - I love TL Swan and she doesn’t disappoint with this one. If you’re into office workplace romances and brooding sexual tension, this book’s for you.

But the female narrator brought the score down for me. She read far too quickly and melded her words together as if she couldn’t even take a breath between them, it’s highly irritating. I had to slow the speed down to be able to get through her chapters, but doing that muffles her voice.
The male narrator was good.

But I’d probably just recommend to read the book instead.
