Title: Seat 2A
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: March 27, 2017
When Jessie Evans, a Georgia Southern University cheerleader, leaves for her best friend’s wedding the last thing she expects is for the seat next to her to be taken. After all, she’d only canceled Seat 2A hours prior after catching her boyfriend cheating.
Kendal Vargas, son of a Spanish emigrant fashion guru, is on his way to Whistler for a “mancation”. Running to buy a neck pillow before his flight, Kendal bumps into Jessie Evans. Kendal is in a hurry. Kendal does not stop to help her. Kendal forgot his neck pillow and the plane is about to leave and hey—who could travel without a neck pillow?
Charmed by Jessie’s beauty, and watching her board his very plane, Kendal takes a whim and changes his seat to one he hopes would be next to her. Jessie ignores Kendal’s attempt to be chatty but when their connecting flight gets canceled overnight, the pair has a chance to make a real connection.
Seven years later, Jessie bumps into Kendal in the produce aisle of a Portland grocery store. No neck pillow is involved, except there is a beautiful little girl who looks just like him. Fate has given them another shot but will Kendal’s whims keep them apart?

Review by: Jennifer
After having caught her boyfriend cheating on her, Jessie is now traveling by herself to her best friends wedding, and as if that's not bad enough, some jerk just knocked into her and knocked her bag all over the floor. When the same rude man is sitting in the seat beside her, and then happens to be on the same flight after that is now delayed, she could be rude and ignore him, but he is being so nice. Having to spend the night in the airport is not making this situation any better, but Kendal is willing to make the best of it if she is. The two end up at the same place at the end of their flight. After thinking she would never see him again, Kendal seems to be around the corner at every turn, and he shows her just how fun doing things on a whim can be.
When Kendal leaves suddenly due to a death in the family, he doesn't have her number, or even her real name to get a hold of her, and Jessie is left thinking he didn't want anything more to do with her. Until seven years later they are once again in the same place at the same time. Is it too late? Has too much time gone by? Can Kendal get Jessie to give him a chance? Or was what they shared years ago just a thing of the past?
So first off, the blurb had me thinking this was going to go a certain way, but it didn't go that way at all. I found the repeat of chapters, meaning a chapter in the H's POV then turn around and have the same thing but from the h's POV a bit odd and needless. Jessie was a freaking mess for most of the book, and really needed to make up her mind, and to build up to them finally, finally having sexy time, but for it to be a "and then they made love" style sexy time, no details, no nothing; that was just plain sad. It was an ok read, I just expected something a bit different than what I got. I give this 3.5 stars.
You’ll most often find her in gym clothes, taking pictures of books in the desert, or eating peppermint patties writing her next book. She lives in Las Vegas with her husband, three kids, and one exceptionally fat Chihuahua. Her website is www.delaauthor.com.
