Breanne Burke is an aspiring travel writer with one critical problem. She suffers from crippling claustrophobia after a horrific car accident. Working her way from the night and all the problems she has had to overcome, she tries constantly to get on the train to take a trip. Now Breanne needs to take an actual trip for an upcoming interview. When she arrives she finds out it was double booked and the other person made their reservation first.
Reid Harper is looking to relax and enjoy life after retiring as a NYPD Officer. Injured in the line of duty, he has his own demons to battle on this trip. Not happy about the mix up, he tries to make the best of it enjoy the trip and the company of Breanne.
The two fight their attraction, but after a while Reid makes Breanne feel like a normal woman. The two start to connect with Breanne’s fears raise their ugly heads again and attack. Now the two need to come to terms with what they feel and how far they want to go to see if they can be together.
A short weekend trip isn’t a long time for a HEA. The two really do have their own issues that can cause them more problems. What I did love was Breanne’s attitude of really trying to overcome them. Sometimes she lost the battle, but she dusted herself off and tried again over and over until she got past them all but claustrophobia. We see her frozen in terror by it, but we also see her work her hardest to overcome it. Reid was honest and helpful, but also strong. He tried different techniques to help her, but he also didn’t let her hold him back.
Overall, I enjoyed the story and look forward to reading more stories by Samantha Hunter.
