Summary
A series of chance encounters leads to a sizzling new romance from the New York Times bestselling author of the On Dublin Street series.

The universe is conspiring against Ava Breevort. As if flying back to Phoenix to bury a childhood friend wasn't hell enough, a cloud of volcanic ash traveling from overseas delayed her flight back home to Boston. Her last ditch attempt to salvage the trip was thwarted by an arrogant Scotsman, Caleb Scott, who steals a first class seat out from under her. Then over the course of their journey home, their antagonism somehow lands them in bed for the steamiest layover Ava's ever had. And that's all it was--until Caleb shows up on her doorstep.

When pure chance pulls Ava back into Caleb's orbit, he proposes they enjoy their physical connection while he's stranded in Boston. Ava agrees, knowing her heart's in no danger since a) she barely likes Caleb and b) his existence in her life is temporary. Not long thereafter Ava realizes she's made a terrible error because as it turns out Caleb Scott isn't quite so unlikeable after all. When his stay in Boston becomes permanent, Ava must decide whether to fight her feelings for him or give into them. But even if she does decide to risk her heart on Caleb, there is no guarantee her stubborn Scot will want to risk his heart on her....

Booklist Review: "After a messy funeral drudges up bad memories, Ava Breevort just wants her flight from Phoenix to be over so she can get back to Boston. However, a run-in with a rude and extremely attractive Scotsman, Caleb Scott, thwarts her plans. A layover turns into getting laid, with Ava and Caleb assuming they'll never see each other again. Then Caleb ends up in Boston for work, and they become friends with benefits. Fueled by hate and passion, things heat up between the two, causing their feelings to erupt in more ways than one. Young (The Impossible Vastness of Us , 2017) makes the temperature rise in this sexy new novel, which blurs the line between friends and friends with benefits. With explicit sex scenes that put the steamiest romances to shame, Young uses the heat between Ava and Caleb to explore their dysfunctional pasts, current realities, and future fears. However, the novel is more than just sex, as issues of physical and emotional abuse are addressed quite well. Readers will finish the novel craving more.--Erin Holt Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Young (On Dublin Street) weaves a melodramatic tale of incompatible strangers who can't fight the physical attraction between them. When Ava Breevort is nearly knocked down by the tall and brusque Caleb Scott in the Sky Harbor Airport, it sets off a chain of unfortunate events that tests believability. Soon the two of them are having altercations and public dressing-downs from the Sky Harbor coffee cart to the first class seating section to a layover in O'Hare Airport. That layover turns passionate, and then into a week-long arrangement while Caleb is in Boston for work, which becomes semipermanent. Eventually, romantic feelings start to form. Caleb's curt arrogance makes him a difficult character to sympathize with, especially given Ava's history of emotional neglect and trauma. By contrast, Ava is a kind and sympathetic heroine who is not afraid to speak up for herself. Ava's best friend tells her that she deserves better, and that the way Caleb treats her is unacceptable; readers will agree. Titillating sexual chemistry and strong female friendships are the true strengths of this wild, implausible ride of a story. Agent: Lauren E. Abramo, Dystel, Goderich & Bourret Literary.
