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 click

I can't, in good conscience, recommend a book that is as bad as this one.

Of better quality I would say that if you like office romance, Vi Keeland does them well, as well as does Whitney G.

The nicest office romance, enemy-to-lovers, witty banter you could get is By a Thread by Lucy Score.

A New York Romance that is Clever and Captivating.

This my perfect romance novel. It had just about everything I look for in a great romance and rated a 5 in just about every one of those categories. It had plenty of steam between the two main characters, dirty talk, witty repartee, bickering between the strong female heroine and the Alpha male Hero, jealousy, an intriguing plot with a mystery, awesome supporting characters and more. The writing was terrific the flow and timing was excellent with

If I could describe a book to you in one gif,'re welcome. You may now skip my entire review.

But dang it, I keep telling myself that I'll stop setting high hopes for books with hot covers only to be let down. And yet I keep doing it. Again. And again. And again.

Admittedly it wasn't just the sexy cover that hooked me here, but the blurb as well. It reminded me a little of a crossover between Whitney Gracia's Turbulence and Reasonable Doubt: Full Series. Sadly, the story just did

When upgraded to first class after an incident at the airport, Emily Foster wasn't prepared for her seating companion Jim. Sitting next to an older, rich & gorgeous man, she is totally bewildered when he takes a genuine interest in her.

Not one to be spontaneous, she finds herself having the best sex of her life during a layover after far too many complimentary champagnes and flirtation that Emily hadn’t expected to lead to anything.

3.5 stars!

The Stopover is the first book in The Miles High Club Series and my first read by T.L. Swan. Let me first say this is a really good story that I found addictive and well-written. Overall, I definitely enjoyed it more than I didn't. I liked the banter between Jameson and Emily, and I found myself laughing out loud a few times (the camping scene was hilarious). Together they have off-the-chart chemistry, they're flirtatious, and like to work each other up, but personally I had so many m

Sadly I had to DNF this at 40%. I thought that the characters were immature and really irritating. They were either having sex or arguing, and I was so bored reading about it. I can't even believe there was another 60% left! Jameson was a total nut job in my opinion, he spied on Emily through cctv at work, I think he got her phone number illegally from the employer files, he was controlling, possessive and a bit of a dick to be honest! When will books stop glamourising this kind of behaviour and ...more
2.5 angst for days stars

Oh the drama and the angst and the snarkiness and the sneering and the smirking and the bitchy and the a-holiness. This book had all of that and more!

While I own other books by this author, this is the first one I have read, and I enjoyed her style overall. I looked at her bio because some of the word choices she use are decidedly not American, though all of the characters in this story were American. The title is one of the examples because in America, we say "layover" a

Me after reading this book:

This book was bad. Just so so bad. The blurb made this book sound so interesting but really? It was a hot mess, actually even worse in my opinion.

This book was just a big whole 'meh' for me

So, these two meet the first time on a plane when she is upgraded first class and spend a wild night together. The next time they meet is about a year later when Emily starts working for Jameson's company. They never forgot each other, the stranger from the night in Boston but h

It’s been awhile since I’ve read a book that was so well executed. I loved it! It grabbed ahold of me and wouldn’t let go. The angst is some of the best I’ve read and the chemistry was perfect with lots of steamy scenes. And did I mention that I loved it?
It put lots of smiles on my face and at other times I wanted to throw my kindle across the room. It had all the feels and was just the rollercoaster I was hoping for. I’m going to read every book I can get my hands on from this author. She’s

If you’re in the mood for angst, drama galore this is the read for you. Personally, at times Jamison came across as a tad too childish and there were moments where I seriously wanted to whack him. Plus, I just wanted things to be consolidated a tad more (I say this as someone who usually hates nearing the end of a book). The heat between Jamison and Emily sizzled, but I have to say at times the sex was a bit much and certain things just felt unreal, for example how could Emily not know

Yeah... I am not sure about this one to be honest. I liked it and I didn't if it makes any sense. So I am going with 3.5 stars rounded to 4 because I supposed there were more scenes that I liked then I didn't.
If you are in the mood for angst, drama, exhausting push and pull and lots of groveling on both sides than I suppose this will do fine.
I stared so promising with them meeting on a flight and having mindblowing nightstand sex , and then it turned ..tiring when they meet again a year lat
4 stars. ⭐⭐⭐⭐

This was my first read by this author and I was really pulled in by the burb but I had no idea that this book was 500+ pages long!!!!
Strangely enough that didn't seem to matter much to me once I started reading it, as this was essentially a pretty good story and I really did enjoy the writing. I was hooked almost immediately!!!

I really loved and enjoyed the chemistry and flirtatious interactions between Jameson and Emily, there were definitely many hilarious and laugh out loud momen

“I just like true stories, regardless of what they are.”
“So do I,” I reply.
“That’s why I like romance. Love is true.”
He chuckles into his glass as if amused.
I glance over at him. “What does that mean?”
“Rom-coms are as far from reality as you can get. I bet you’re the type who reads trashy romance novels too.” I stare at him flatly. I think I hate this man.

And there it is—the heat that this man creates with his stare could light up the earth.

And what a pleasant surprise i came back to❤️❤️!

This book was lovely; A piece of cake i loved to devour in one setting!

It was idiotic, it was funny, it was tear jerking but most importantly it was full of love. I mean literally, this book made me realize why i ever loved this genre so much in the first place. The reason i, or anyone for that matter, should never stop themselves from reading books.

Okay, although I did get some quick peeks at Jameson's mind, it wasn't enough to counteract the pain of reading about Emily. Her thoughts and feelings were too dramatic (honestly, she was so irrelevant) and she was too much of a brat for me to tolerate. I've read plenty of books from this author and LOVED them. This just doesn't happen to be one of them. Instead of rating it poorly, I'm going to leave it right here on my DNF shelf. Sucks too because this story had tons of potential. Jameson and ...more

This book, at the beginning I didn’t like and I almost stoped (of course has cliches a lot), but the story became so good and I enjoyed the reading.

So this was a fun contemporary read with plenty of humour and heavy on the angst.
Jameson or Jay was dominant and bossy and a bit of an a-hole he was also a devil between the sheets.

TL Swan cemented herself as one of my favorite authors when I first read the Stanton Series and since then every book she has written has made me love her even more. The growth in the writing and plots just gets better and better. When I read Mr. Masters, I got a real jolt of the comedic relief that she could provide in a book. I mean Joshua Stanton and Tash and Cam were funny but you didn't get the comedy that you got in Mr. Masters and again in this The Stopover. I

The Stopover is book 1 in The Miles High Club. Jim and Emily meet on a flight after Emily is upgraded to First Class and a problem at the airport where they need to land leads to a stopover. Their interaction through out the flight range from funny to smoking hot. The chemistry between the two was awesome and it leads to an amazing night. Fast forward one year and Emily finally lands the job of her dreams in NYC for Miles Media and guess who is the CEO. Honestly for the majority of the book I fe ...more

This book is a fucking mess. The love story is terrible, they both are crazy and have the worst mood swings in the history of mood swings but also the story as a whole did not make sense. Like at times it felt like I was missing huge chunks of it, am I the only one who felt this way? It was absolutely confusing and did not make sense and made me so angry because I felt like I had somehow skipped entire chapters when I know for a fact I didn’t. Don’t bother. This book is a mess.

To tell I didn't start the book in the right mindset, would be the understatement of the year.
For some weeks now I've been on a book hiatus that has somehow put me off from reading.
No, no put me off doesn't quite cover it. I remember scrolling down the book pages and thinking, 'What is so amazing about this book, anyway?'

So glad that not only I was proven wrong, but apparently my 'curse' is broken.

this was an okay read
the characters were a bit annoying & immature not appealing behavior
but I read it considering it was a long-ass book so yay me
that camping scene was eeeeeeeverything my fav part of this book I laughed out laud
reading a teaser chapter of book two I decided I will not read it bc the heroine has the same vibe as this one and I am not here for it

This is the first book in what looks to be another great series by Swan, which is good news for me as I love this author.

This book however, I have mixed feelings about. This is Emily’s and Jim’s story and probably the first one I didn’t love , but thats not to say it wasn't enjoyable.

The pair meet when Emily’s flight is upgraded. She meets Jim and they have an undeniable connection with each other. An unexpected layover leads to the pair spending the night together. Fast forward a y
