‘Delicious, slow-burning romance, sizzling banter and crackling chemistry? Swoon’ Angie Hockman, author of Shipped

An unexpected tropical layover with her nemesis turns a flight attendant’s life upside down in this witty, breezy debut romantic comedy about life – and love – 30,000 feet above the ground. Perfect for fans of The Unhoneymooners, Shipped and The Hating Game!

After ten years as a flight attendant, Ava Greene is poised to hang up her wings and finally put down roots. Unfortunately, she’s working her last trip with Jack Stone – the absurdly gorgeous, ridiculously cocky man she’s held a secret grudge against for years.

When their plane encounters mechanical problems, what should have been a quick stop in Belize suddenly becomes a weekend layover. Getting stuck on a flight with her nemesis was bad enough. Being stranded with him at a luxury resort in paradise? Even with the sultry breeze and white sand to distract her, it will take all the rum punch in the country to drown out his larger-than-life presence.

Yet the more time Ava spends with him under the hot Caribbean sun, the more she begins to second-guess everything she thought she knew. Soon, she might have to choose between keeping her feet on the ground or her head in the clouds . . .

Once I started The Layover, I couldn't put it down! Lacie Waldon has written a super fun, witty, and romantic enemies-to-lovers rom-com that had me flying through the pages. And as a bonus, I loved the peek behind the curtain into the lives of flight attendants. This is a lovely escape full of sun, swoons, and sexual tension

The Layover is an ideal escape - from the intriguing insider's view of air travel to the picturesque setting on the shores of Belize, I was swept away on Ava's journey as she spars with Jack, wrestles her feelings, and learns to trust her own heart. A fun and irresistible romance that soars
