I picked this story short up when it was a freebie on Kindle. It turns out that it is part of a serial-like set of short stories with that whole ‘read on to see what happens next’ vibe. This portion of the story grabbed my interest with its introduction to the characters and the plot thread for the story.
In this segment, Lisa has just finished up a contract design job and is now flying back home to NYC. She is despondent because her job is ending soon and there are no new prospects in sight in her chosen field of interior design. A seeming coincidence occurs in that a guy who she sees most days in the park back in NYC during her lunch breaks is on her same flight. The mystery man has attracted her from the moment she first saw him and she deliberately chose to eat her lunch at that time and in the park for opportunities to see him. It turns out that he is just as interested. On the flight, mystery man helps Lisa join the mile high club, but then afterwards he seems to want nothing to do with her and she is hurt, but lets it go as a lesson learned. Not long after that, she is given reason to reassess the whole thing when he re-enters her life with an explanation and a proposition.
This is a short read and it is only part one so it is necessarily quick out of the gate. I didn’t mind that and even found the pace suitable for the story’s tone and the plot line. There isn’t much time to get to know people, but I have to say that I’m on the fence about whether I’m going to like Lisa. I don’t want to spoil the story so I won’t go into detail, but let’s just say that I don’t agree with some of her choices and reactions so far.
With that being said, it’s a decent story that I want to find out what happens next. I can recommend this to those who enjoy steamy contemporary romance.
