Blurb: International flight attendant Jake Watson jets from Dallas to Tokyo with his boss and secret crush, lead flight attendant Evan Parker. Evan’s frosty glares and snarky comments have held Jake’s feelings at bay for months because Evan hates Jake. Or does he?
While the plane cruises high over the Pacific, Evan proves Jake’s secret crush isn’t so secret or as unwelcome as he believed. Can Jake’s fire melt Evan’s ice? Their layover in Tokyo is Jake’s chance to sneak past his boss’s defenses and possibly into his bed.
Will Jake crash and burn with Evan or find love at 38,000 feet?
Review: Jake has a secret crush on his boss, Evan. But, he hates working with him. Not because of his unrequited lust, but because Evan is snarky and unpleasant to work with. But, on a flight to, he sees a slightly different side of Evan and maybe his lust isn’t as unrequited as he thought.
This is a cute little short that has whetted my appetite for this new series. Jake was expecting to spend his lay over with his friends, Mason and Trevor, but that falls through. So, now he is looking at sightseeing by himself, but his plans are looking to change again, with Evan’s thaw in attitude. Evan has always been stand-offish or as Jake thinks ‘snarky, anal retentive bastard’, whereas everyone else goofed off with light-hearted banter, but Evan is a stickler for the rules.
This short story has quite a bit of humor and is enjoyable to read. There are several different scenes with different characters that are quite funny, so the story is smooth and flows quickly. The Evan we see at the end of the book is completely different form the one we are introduced to at the start, but I suppose some people do have a different face at work. The other characters (Mason, Trevor and Tyler) add to this story as well, fleshing it out and adding to our enjoyment. We don’t learn much about the characters because of the length of the book, but it didn’t actually make me feel like I had missed out though.
I recommend this to those who like flight attendants, humor, some passionate sex, a great short story and enjoyable read.
