Add to Goodreads

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?

I buddy read this book with my book gf Rhyzza💗

What a bummer. The Stopover started strong and I was instantly hooked of the connection between the protagonists Emily Foster & Jameson Miles. They met on a flight, the spark ignites and hooked up. A year later they reunited in the same company where Jameson Miles happen to be the CEO of the company. It was intense and hot, I’ll give points for that but around the 30% mark, it felt a routine. The repeated quarrels and make-up sex becomes exhausting.

I lost my patience on the series of plot twist which turned out less exciting and there are parts that give me a “WTF” face. The hero did something unforgivable that I considered a red flag & the heroine reacting as if it was a minor issue baffles me. She was treated like some side chick. I put down my kindle to gather my patience. I almost throw it across my room. What’s more frustrating? The groveling isn’t enough. I want the hero to CRAWL for all the things he did.

Seriously, the protagonists acted immaturely. The supporting characters are cardboard cutouts except for Tristan Miles. This could turn out differently if we focus on the actual conflict & lessen the raging hormones (I love the sex scenes okay. They’re steamy but it should be balanced). They are lusting for each other and not love.
