Publisher's Summary

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?

Definitely a hot story but the last third...

Overall opinion: This story started out hot and, even though it is angst heavy, was going very well for the first 60%. The heavy drama started way too early and, in Audible, lasted 3 hours. I skipped over an hour because it was so repetitive. If TL shortened the story by 2 - 3 hours, it would have been a 5-star read for me. If you like the heavy will they/won't they angst heavy, miscommunication drama that lasts for 30+% of the story, you will love this.

If it weren't for the part at 3 hours left

It had some promise. With some romance and some push and pull, some misunderstandings and some sex. But the screechy hysterical voice and actions of the female character at about 3 hours from the end of the story. I just can't. It sank like a stone for me there. I can't help that I've gotten allergic to when the female heroines in romantic stories just has to get a bit hysterical, too dumb, overreact at conflict or some drama. Especially when it often feels like it is a woman character that is well educated, smart and often level headed in almost all of the story. So she should be able to get upset, sad, angry, and reach a road bump in a story without it suddenly turning to her getting illogical, hysterical. But no, she just has to get a bit screechy and acting like a desperate ditsy character all of a sudden? Calling and texting desperately, why? And it is too bad she had to be that annoying, just had to go there. Because it would have been really good for me if it weren't for that turn at approx 3 hours left.

THE 4-STAR PERFORMANCE WAS ALL SEBASTIAN YORK!!

Why did Sebastian get top billing when I had to listen to so much/too much C. J. Bloom. The story was childish to me, no real connection to/for the characters. I got through it the fourth night. I get it was primarily a woman's point of view, but geezo pete; the female would start off a section o.k., but, then she would loose it and sounded like her character. Not only was the character immature, but the voice was too. There are some 25 year old females around who don't act 15 and going out on a first date. And the complaints about Seb York's voice sounding to old for 20 something men, in my biased view, I always preferred mature sounding men, even when I was 17. I might recommend this listen to someone whose tastes I know!!!

The Stopover

Normally I don’t review a DNF book but I listened to 9hrs and 28 mins of the 12 hr and 58 min book so I am going to review and rate it.

I loved the beginning I was hoping it was going to be interesting and intriguing and it was until it turned in to just like every other billionaire book.

Actually it got worse, it was getting close to childish drama and I just can’t with that. I was rolling my eyes so much but the end if I had made myself listen I would have ended up hating it all.

I did love the narration, if it had been anyone else but those two I probably would have stopped after the first eye roll.

A Movie Worthy Read!

This book has it all and, it’s a can’t put down until the end kind of book. It has ruined me for all other books. Loved the characters. This storyline; never misses a beat, The narrative performances by Sebastian and C.J are phenomenal!

They meet on a plane, they have an undeniable attraction, they spend one night together, part ways and than, fate brings them back together and life’s never the same for these two main characters.

This book is RED HOT, Jaw dropping, every man woman sex and, romance fantasy. So, if you can’t handle this kind of book, you might want to look within another great romance category such as; Religious and Inspirational.

I loved this book. It’s my new number one favorite and I can’t wait for the next book in this series. A big 10 Stars to T. L. Swan! What a writer!

Very little of Sebastian York!

Ok, let’s get this straight. I buy my books based on the narrator and Sebastian York is my favorite. There is VERY little of his narration in this book. Most of it comes near the end of the book. If you look at the picture of the book you will notice HIS name is listed first. I would think that would indicate he narrates at least 1/2 of the book. No. His part is about 15%. The book had potential but I found myself playing it at 1.5x, slowing it down ONLY to hear S.Y. Sexy voice. (The female narrator did ok, just that she read to much of the book). I wish there was something posted in the description that tell the potential buyer just what % of the book is read by each narrator. If there was I certainly wouldn’t have bought THIS one.

Don't expect to hear a lot of Sebastian York

The story was riveting and addictive. Don't expect to hear a lot of Sebastian York as the book is mostly narrated by the female narrator. She was great but I expected to hear much more of York.

I HAVE MIXED FEELINGS ABOUT THIS BOOK

The romance between Emily and Jameson started during their unplanned stopover in Boston after their flight to New York from London was canceled due to a snowstorm in New York. It was supposed to be a one night stand and they did not expect to see each other again. It would have ended there except a year later, Emily was hired by Miles Media, a large publishing company owned by the Miles family and headed by no other than Jameson himself as its CEO. The on again-off again relationships, if you can call it that, and the story itself made me laugh, hate/love Jameson (for switching his personality from Jim the lover boy to Jameson the obnoxious CEO and back), yell at Emily and blush at some very descriptive steamy scenes.

So why do I have mixed feelings about this book? Because there are some things that just didn't make sense to me. Why did Lara Aspin (the female villain) sell her laptop computer without erasing its content, not to mention for a measly $100? It seemed to me that T L Swan had to shorten the novel and gave us a quick solution to Jameson's problem. The author never told us who has been giving/selling “breaking news” to Miles Media’s fiercest competitor. Some might say that it is implied, but that does not satisfy me. Again, Emily was described as an intelligent and strong woman, yet she turned into putty and horny when in the presence of Jameson. Really?

It seems to me that CJ Bloom sometimes forgets to change her female voice to a male voice when reading Jameson’s line. That made me wonder who is speaking. Sebastian York had the top billing, but he had very few lines. I was a little disappointed. Is the top billing a lure to us who like to hear Sebastian York narrate?

I got this book as a Kindle Unlimited Read and Listen. All in all, it was an enjoyable book and for the price, it is worth it.

More than I was expecting

While this book starts out as a familiar story line it quickly becomes so much more. The characters are intertwined in such an interesting way it will keep you guessing about their "romance". Overall the whole book doesn't follow the cookie cutter romance recipe which I really enjoyed. My only complaint was that we did get very much Sebastian York, I would have loved some more chapters narrated by him.

Unfortunately this was a miss for me.

Oh boy... Where do I start?

This was suppose to be a buddy reading between me, Duchess and Angel, but after a chain of hilarious voice messages and a lot of what the hell moments, they DNF it, and I continued with the book, because I just can't give up that easily... It's a curse!

I've read this author before and I did liked, but this one looked like a bad porn since chapter one.

There was no chemistry between Jay/Jim/Jameson and Emily.
The author put their first sex scene in 5% of the book, and although I can give her bonus points for that, she should have showed how they get there... What happened between them to drawn into their scorching night.

One year after their one night stand, with no exchange of numbers or surnames, Emily is working as a reporter for Jay's huge and completely unrealistic media company, and we start an office enemies to lovers or forced proximity rom-com.

After that the book becames very repetitive.
1- She goes to his office, they flirt/kiss/fight.
2 - Couple of days pass, they do dinner/sex/fight.
Another couple of days and we're back at step one, and so goes on and on...

Emily and Jay act like teenagers in almost every interaction with each other and the others around them.

Her thoughts were so dumb that I was starting to wonder why he was into her... She must've been stunning on the outside!

He says that he's married to his job and he's a workaholic that can't have a relationship, but he leaves the building everyday at 6pm like everyone else. Another unrealistic fact for a CEO on the media world.

The fights, the sex, even him asking and tasting the wines and champagnes before her is repetitive, not adding to the story, but making the book huge and tiresome.

After they accepted their relationship, things got a little better on the story, and I finally could see some sort of connection between them. He showed that he could be more than an stressful and arrogant CEO, and she showed that she could be more than a fu*k bunny.

I didn't liked the twist or the motives for their separation, as much as I didn't liked the amount of drama she put on before take him back. It was again repetitive and annoying.

I guess I really need to learn how to let a book go...

About the Audiobook:

I've listened to CJ Bloom work before, and I liked, but in this one unfortunately, I didn't...
Her voice was like an annoying teenager at the beginning, and her longs pauses in certain sentences got on my nerves.
Also she should definitely work on her male voice interpretation, because she looked constipated doing Jay's voice.

Sebastian York voice and interpretation was flawless as always.

One of the best books this year!!

I have never read this author before so I read the bio and really liked the sound of it so i have waited and waited till it was released hoping that it would not be a let down,
all I can say is that I LOVED it.

This book had me laughing, crying and gave me all the feels, ivan usually tell in the first 5 minutes of a book if it will be enjoyable to me and this had me grasped from beginning to end.
this book is beautifully written and also fantastically narrated and I know I will listen to this again and again.
🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 would give it 10 stars if I could.
