I, Makayla Alexander, am on a mission to reinvent myself.
So when a super hot guy boards the plane and flashes his rock hard abs, I pay attention. When he sits next to me and offers me his nuts, I can’t resist. But when I choke on them and he tells me I need to work on my gag reflex, I realize I might be in over my head.
Before I know it we’re in the lavatory and attempting to join the Mile High Club.
Let me just say this…anyone who tells you it’s easy to get it on at 37,000 feet isn’t telling you the truth.
After the flight attendant busts us for getting frisky in the air, the only thing that can ease my total and complete mortification is the simple fact that I am never going to see him again.
Hours later, I can’t help but wonder if fate will ever allow me to become a new version of myself.
Because Fate, she’s a fickle bitch.
Case in point…my seatmate is my new next-door neighbor.
Even with the whole fate thing we have going on, we are so not meant to be together. He’s all cool and sexy in that make love not war kind of way. Guys like him are dangerous. With that bring-you-to-your-knees body, that handsome-as-hell face, and that dirty, dirty mouth, I guarantee one glance from him wets every girl’s bikini bottoms.
And then there’s me…the quirky girl looking to find herself in California. All I want to do is learn to let loose. Say words like peace and groovy. Bury my toes in the sand. Who knows, maybe even have sex on the beach.
Unable to get him out of my head, I entertain the thought of being more than just friends. I know the idea is absurd. And yet, I go with it. You see Camden Waters gets me. Really gets me. Like no other guy has before.
On this 7-mile stretch of paradise, I decide to keep things simple and just have fun…that is until fate decides to screw with me, again.
Can two people hell-bent on finding themselves realize the search should have ended the day they met?
Makayla and Cam are both searching for something that is missing in their lives. Each of them has faced their own difficulties in life, and these trials have changed their paths. Luckily for them, their paths lead them to sunny California.
I felt a bit disconnected from this story. I don’t think it was the story’s fault, as I liked the concept of the story. I’m not sure if it’s because I couldn’t relate to the characters or whether something was missing. There were some parts I wished delved a little deeper, but I did enjoy the story.
There are many funny moments throughout the story. Not only are some of the characters a little awkward, but they’re clever and quick witted. I found that Cam, for me, could be hilarious! And I loved the way he would try to find humor in so many situations.
There were some tumultuous parts in the storyline that gave the story a bit of depth, but for me it felt as though they didn’t get enough attention. The main story is a romantic comedy, so I understand the levity needed, but it left me feeling as though the characters weren’t as complex as they could’ve been.
Even though the story wasn’t really for me, it was a good story. There was humor, love, a little ebb and flow in the plot, and interesting characters.
