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….

Book Extras: Read an Excerpt
“Sometimes…things just happen and you think you know what you’re doing, and you wake up and realize that everything you thought was right, all the choices at you made, they’re all wrong. And everything’s gone.”Stella flies away on the weekends, dressing different, using false names she picks up the random man at the airport to have no strings sex and then returns home. She’s hiding so much of herself, until she meets Matthew.
This is a hard book for me to review. I have a love and dislike of the read at the same time. Megan Hart writes an amazing tale, descriptive scenarios that pull you in. At the same time, there’s a feeling of repetition that as a reader caused me to become bored with the storyline.
There’s some time line jumps while Stella thinks about her past that become quite confusing at the time. Without spoiling the end, I think it felt rushed, incomplete, and after all the struggles of Stella’s inner demons it was just too easy.
