Ever hear of wanderlust? Every other weekend, Stella buys a ticket on the next flight out of town and leaves her life behind. Home is a place with too many memories, and departure is the sweetest possible distraction. As soon as she arrives at her destination, Stella visits the airport bar. She orders a drink and waits for the right guy to come along. A bored businessman, a backpacker, a baggage handler just off shift. If he's into a hot, no-strings hookup, he's perfect. Each time is a thrilling escape from reality that gives the term layover a whole new meaning. When Stella meets the enigmatic Matthew in Chicago one weekend, she hits some serious turbulence. Something about him tells her she's not the only one running from the past. The connection between them is explosive, and for the first time, one taste is not enough for Stella. But returning to find a gorgeous man waiting for her is the easy part& facing the reason she's there is a whole other matter.

In a Nutshell: Unhappy and lonely woman flies out to random cities to sleep with strangers.

Why I Read This Book: Megan Hart is always on my auto-read. Whenever on NetGalley I request right away and I also purchase a copy for my exclusive keeper shelf.

What I Liked: There were a lot of things I enjoyed about this book so let me take it from the top. Doctor Who references. I'm a long-time fan girl so any book that has a Doctor reference easy wins me over. Smart Literature. When I read an erotic novel I don't read it because it's about to up my grade in English Lit. I read them for the experience, the sensations, the passion, and let's face it...the sex. Ms. Hart has a real talent for adding another layer to her novels. She adds a layer that taps into my intellect rather than just my emotions.

The characters in this novel are real people. They make mistakes, they love, they lose, and they hurt. Just like everyone else. That is what I most appreciated. Ms. Hart doesn't write people who are like real people...she writes truly real individuals I look for on the street. This novel made me laugh, cry, curse, and smile. It was a fun ride.

Another good point. Ms. Hart never goes for the easy ending. Ever. If you expect it...probably not going to happen. this novel she took the route I originally expected. I'm not sure if it's because I've gotten to know her style or maybe she was being unexpected because she was expected. Who knows.

What I Didn't Like: The back and forth. Stella did a lot of back and forth back and forth. With her emotions, with people, with everything. It's a point that both annoyed me and I liked because real people do it too. Might have just been a bit too often for Stella.

Overall Impression: A wild and fun ride in the life of someone else. I really enjoyed it.
