Enhance your purchase
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?

The Stopover starts with just that - a flight that is going from London to NYC but gets way laid and ends up having to fly into Boston for the night due to weather. Emily Foster, a young and feisty thing is flying back from London in coach but after an incident in the airport, she's bumped up to first class. And it's there that she meets the slightly older, incredibly hot guy that's seated next to her. From the very get go, these two are funny as hell. If they aren't bantering or arguing, they're flirting up a storm. The internal monologues from Emily's side since she occupies the first chapters had me cracking up and 'Jim', her travel companion for the flight had me cracking up with half his dialogue. Between the two of them, you literally get sucked in from the very first chapter and from there, there's not a place in the book that you find yourself slipping out. When they get deferred to Boston, they end up spending the night together and to say that it's mind-blowing, off the walls sex for them with a one of a kind chemistry would be an entirely accurate statement. However, morning comes and they go their own ways - Jim to NYC and Emily, having missed her job interview in NYC back to LA. No numbers exchanged, just a crazy transatlantic flight and a night to remember.
12 months later, Emily lands her dream job in NYC as a journalist at Miles Media and what would you know? Jim just happens to be Jamison Miles, the CEO of the biggest media conglomerate in the nation and Emily's boss's boss's boss. When she's taken to the upper floors to get the tour and meet management, Jamison is in and he recognizes her on the spot. Jamison has never forgotten that night a year ago and he let's Emily know that he hasn't and that he's more than interested in her. So Jamison starts his rather bossy and brusque pursuit of Emily and that's another thing that I loved about these two. Just as on the plane when he was just 'Jim', they're both bossy, both headstrong and as Jamison refers to Emily at times, she can be a snarky bitch which she readily admits. Jamison is used to having anyone he wants without even trying and Emily is just not that girl. She gives as good as she gets and the back and forth between them is entertaining as hell. I'm so used to the billionaire books where the billionaire has all the control and some dark back secret that makes him put the heroine through a ton of angst and she let's him walk all over her while secretly hoping he'll let her in. This book refreshingly skips the usual power dynamic and unnecessary angst and puts two people together where they both stand their ground.
Jamison was a delightful alpha but when it came to Emily he was also secretly mushy as hell. He runs the gamut from scotch guzzling, uptight, bossy CEO Jamison, to slightly more relaxed and at home billionaire Jay to Emily's 'Jim' when he let's all the stress and position go and just is - that's when he's his lightest and most fun. Emily is completely unimpressed by the money, the power or anything that comes along with it - she fell for her Jim on the plane - and for Jamison this is an absolute first and makes Emily his one of a kind.
Of course, there's a side drama and a huge conflict that comes along. But the B plot was well set up and there was nothing overdone or gratuitously added. Going back and looking over my highlights, it was all there for the taking and it definitely wasn't there to pad the story. And I dug how Emily, even with where the story was at, kept herself together and took on more than most could bite off.
I could quote this book to the high heavens and God knows I have enough of them. There are some classics in here. But I'm not going to add a single one because I don't want to ruin a single line or scene in this book for anybody that decides to read it. Where's the fun in already having somebody giving you some of the all time best exchanges in the book? I will say that anyone that knows me knows that I don't go in for laughter much but even with the flu I found myself laughing so hard I was literally hacking up my lungs and massively alarming the dog.
One final note: I remember reading Mr. Masters and really loving it and I skimmed a couple of her other books also but I have to say this author has evolved with this book. Massively evolved! It has two wonderful MC's who take an organic journey filled with humor, bickering, flat out arguing, great make up sex, flirtation, lust, compromise, misunderstanding and love. I also really enjoyed some of the side characters - my God, her friend Molly has some funny moments to add in and Tristan Miles is a lovely, lovely sidepiece.
So here's to camping in New Jersey, Bessie, Manhattan public transportation with some good old fashioned groveling and a side of Viagra Mike! Long live flight delays and really hot, bossy men!
**********10 Stars and to hell with the rating system. This is my idea of perfection.
(And yes, this is a totally honest review!)
This is your typical rich billionaire male who meets young female. I loved how they met. I loved how the young female stood her own ground through the story, especially when times were the hardest for her. I loved how the rich billionaire struggled to realize what he wanted. The author made his struggle real and relevant.
The couple went through some tough times together and apart. Their separate stories helped the ready empathize with the characters. The female stayed true to herself which I loved!
I wish there was more variety in how the couple shared intimacy. Scenes were pretty similar each time. Positions were similar. Description of kissing was similar. A little variety there would have made the sex scenes not so predictable.
The mystery that took place in the story was well done. The way it was written, it could have been anyone and the reader just didn’t know who it would be. Glad to see Emily use her talents in that part of the story. I felt like saying “finally she’s doing her job” when she was decided to focus that way.
I’ll definitely try another book from this author. Looking forward to more great reading.
The characters had real depth and passion. The storyline was believable and pulled all the emotional strings you could ask for, from laugh out loud, to cry your eyes out, and everywhere in between...
I was hooked and stayed up all night to finish reading, alternating between reading and listening to the audio so I could continue it even when I needed to put the book down but didn't want to wait to pick it back up. The voices from the audio had it playing out in my mind like a cinematic release.
And the Beta Team Deserves Mad Props. Since as a Beta myself it can take many hours to beta a manuscript like this one. I was so so happy to be able to give a full 5 star rating since the work was well written and adjusted for digital reading.
I am exhausted but as soon as I finish this review I am looking for the next book that catches my eye from this Author. And looking to buy this one for my shelf, so I can always return to read it again and again. To me nothing shows how good a fic is than to know the reader enjoyed it so much they want it for all time.
To the writer if I could, I would say well done. I hope you continue to share your stories, I understand how nerve racking and how much work goes in to sharing a tale, and I'd thank you for sharing this one.

Another amazing book with all the feels and angst to keep you thinking about it once you’ve finished.
This is a story that you won’t be able to put done. Like all her books you are engaged and committed from the first chapter! And as you near the end you slow yourself down as you don’t want it to end!
Highly recommend this book and what looks set to be an amazing series. Love Emily and her no crap attitude and her ability to de stress Jameson. This book will make you laugh out loud and then cry the next minute. As for Jim what can I say other than swoon worthy I want me a Jim too!! Although I did want to kill him a few times! But I forgave him. I cannot wait for the next book in the series as I know this will no disappoint
Fast forward a year ... a new job for Emily and a new boss ... brings her back to her one night stand... Jameson Miles . Won’t spoil the story just enjoy the ride it will leave you wanting more... hopefully we can learn more about the other sexy miles brothers ... greedy for more ... can’t wait for the takeover with Tristan. Definite read highly recommended 😍
It reads like you are watching a movie. Just love this author.
