➳Dela not only brings a new contemporary romance to dive in for, but she also brings messages of second changes and how powerful they can when you meet your one true love in this magnificent love story of Jessie and Kendall…

➳Meeting as a form of destiny and fate is what Jessie and Kendall experience. Their encounters are ones that you really do not see so often, but yet again this is a fictional story after all. However, the plot twists and different view points are what make this story beyond

Major Spoilers & a Major Rant.
The book takes place over a seven-year time span which is okay no problems there on my part. The blurb though in my opinion is misleading it implies and this is what I understood that they spent the night together I thought I must have missed their one night of passion but I kept reading and still nothing happened.
Maybe she is the Mary and the Holy Spirit visited her but alas that also was not the case. The result was a little girl tha

I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy of this book.

Where do I start. This book started out really good. The way Kendal and Jessie meet is really nice and how they kept running into each other was cute. One thing I liked was that they didn't rush anything and tried to get to know each other. Something happens and they lose touch.

Seven years later they see each other again and this is where my rating started dropping. I found the characters to be a bit immature and childish for certain situat

What if coincidences were fate and destiny at play? What if it was trying to tell you something, but you missed all the signs? Would you hold on to the "one-day" thought or would you just let that moment pass you by and in the future view it as a missed opportunity - the one that got away? Jessie had her friend's wedding planned and was going to attend it with her boyfriend, that was until she caught him cheating just before the flight was to depart. Now prepared for an empty seat next to her, J ...more

Don’t really know what to say about this book. It wasn’t anything like I imagined. In some ways, I really liked the author’s plot ideas. But the road she took was just plagued with wrong turns. A ton of repetitive language annoyed the heck out of me. It was extremely hard to follow with a huge mix of cheesiness that I didn’t really find entertaining. The story covered a seven-year time line which would have been okay - but very slow paced and frequent bouts of OTT overkill. The first meeting bet ...more

This was one of those books that started out great and then sort of lost it's lustre.

The premise was a great one.
When this couple first meet...perfect.
When their paths keep crossing...perfect.
After that...meh.

Title: Seat 2A
Author: Dela
Genre: Contemporary
Rating: 2.5/5

This is a story of what happens when your past collides with your present.

When I started reading this book I'll be honest it took me a while to actually get into it as I found it to be quite slow paced which was a theme that continued throughout, I know you need to be aware of the how's and why's of how things were the they were but really a lot could've been cut however I persevere
DNF @ 43%!

I gave this story 2 stars because the first 20% was really good and promising. After the time jump the repetition and hinky timeline got to me a little. I kept going though. I was going to finish this book. This author seems very very sweet, and I've read some good reviews for her other book. Unfortunately I could not get past some of the happenings. They were just a little too OTT for me. When it got gross, I was out.

This will probably work for someone who is looking for a VERY silly

Kendal literally runs into Jessie at the airport, upending her purse and just walks away as he's late for his flight. She's grumbly (yes, that's a word.. now) about the whole situation but somehow still notices how cute Kendal is. They end up sitting next to each other on the flight and get stuck on a layover toward their final destination, allowing them time to get to know each other as clearly a mutual attraction has sparked. Seeing each other periodically over their short stint in Whistler, t ...more

I got this book as an ARC, and that does not change my opinion of the book.

I want to first of say how much I love Dela. I actually got sent her first book, by her, for free. I watch her stories on Instagram, stalk her feed, and am open to give her a lot of support.

But, as an author, I do think that she could, and will, get better. There are just things that bother some advanced readers like ourselves.

But her book, as it was a great plot line, could use some changes. First off, I would really li

What a beautiful, unexpected and hilarious story by Dela! Being the first time that I read a novel by this author (it is the first time I hear about her, honestly), I was almost reluctant to start reading this book, but the blurb drew me in little by little. And boy a I ever happy that I started those first pages because it swallowed me in faster than I could have ever imagined! Jessie and Kendal's start starts off 7 years ago on a chance meeting wh

3.5 Stars upgraded to 4.

So, I really enjoyed the premise of this book and what it could be. The first 1/3 of the book I was hooked and I didn't want to put it down. After the time jump it got a little too wordy for me, with just a hint too much description and filler that wasn't truly needed. BUT, with that being said, I loved the characters and the banter between them. I loved the storyline and the plot, and I loved the references to their past on the pla

WTF!!! I don't usually get to write a review right after I finish reading but I actually do for this one....I must say I am a bit confused about what I just read, so let me just give you the stages in which I have journeyed the last few days.

1) Boredom - almost DFNed this bad boy, the way the story jumped back in the timeline when the voice changed was frustrating. That got better as the book progressed because the jump backs were not that far.
2) Intrigue and Joy - Kendal and Jessie's antics w

Dela is a new to me Author with Seat 2A being my first read. I was intrigued when i read the blurb for this book looking like when your past catches up to your present with a lost love.
I loved the start of this book i thought the chemistry between the Jessie and Kendal was amazing. The chance meeting at the airport with flirty banter had me hooked.
But when they went their separate ways only to meet up 7 years later. I found myself getting slightly brassed off with the push pull

First off can I just say how much I love the cover of this book? The hot pink words with the black and white photo of the hot guy on the airplane definitely had me intrigued. Seat 2A is an easy romantic quick read that I couldn't put down that would be the perfect beach read. The characters are charming, the writing is witty, and there's just enough steamy scenes that leave you wanting more. I finished it honestly without complaints. I love the banter between the characters, the fun nicknames, t ...more

*Received an ARC for honest review.*

I thought this book was cute. I tend to lean towards spicier, steamier books nowadays but this one was a nice reprieve from that. The main character was a little annoying, but it was nice and different to read a story about something other than a secret baby, a ménage, or sports. 3.5 stars.

Star Rating - ***

Having never read a Dela book before I was unsure what to expect from the author. Telling the story of 2 seat mates on a plane ride to Vancouver and their accidental reunion 7 years later. Feisty 2B is heartbroken and heading to her best friends wedding when a stranger in the airport knocks her over, still reeling from her boyfriends betrayal being knocked over is the last straw. Especially when she finds out her seat mate 2A on the plane is the man who knocked her over. Cocky 2

A chance encounter brings us Seat 2A. A seat that was supposed to be empty is filled with possibilities when Jessie and Kendal are thrown together.

Kendal is mysterious. He has secrets. Jessie does too. The two of them continue on, perfectly happy with how they met and what they are keeping from each other. Unforeseen circumstances tear them apart, and the story picks back up, years later.

Seat 2A is exciting, fun, and suspenseful. The will they, won't they, is addictive and I didn't want to stop

One seat change, one cookie shared, leads to promises!

I would like to think that Fate brought Kendal and Jessie together, but changed her mind shortly afterwards. Why would Fate do that!? I'll tell you why! Kendal was not ready to commit to being a boyfriend, and certainly not ready to be a husband! Jessie wanted what her friend Regina had! A loving relationship, stability, and a ring on her finger! Soo.. I think Fate decided that the couple needed some time and space apart.

So this book was a disappointment. I had such high hopes but it fell flat for me. They had a great meeting at first but things went weird after that. It was super cute way to meet, I'll admit but I think to much time had passed and you just didn't feel the attraction anymore.
Kendal has serious commitment issues and I thought Jessie would change that. It took a long time before that happened. She had another boyfriend who I knew wasn't going to work out. He handles the breakup very childish and

The blurb had me hooked going into this book but the book will make you laugh and at the same time you will get frustrated with the characters at times and be like dude get over your commitment issues already and commit to the girl! With that said this was a good read not great, I think that the author has some room to g ...more

Wow I'm amazed at home easy to get lost in this novel is. I love Jessie and Kendall's story, even if you get your heart broken along the way. This is so worth it. They have the unconditional love that grows over a lifetime. For a moment I wondered if happily ever after was not going to be in the cards for these two. It's like life just keeps coming in between their relationship and saying do not pass go and do not collect your other half! It's definitely one of the busiest rollercoaster of emoti ...more
Where should I begin with this book???

The idea for this book was there! I loved all of the aspects, the story line and the characters, all of it. But man the delivery was terrible. I found myself nodding off during this book. It just seemed to have too much of a plot. I feel that the author could have left out a lot of useless information pertaining to what the characters were doing. I also feel that things were repeatedly said that didn’t need to be in the plot.
