Love at First Flight - Marie Force

What if the guy in the airplane seat next to you turned out to be the love of your life?

Juliana, happy in her career as a hair stylist, is on her way to visit her boyfriend of ten years who's working out of state. She's wondering why they're not engaged yet. Michael is going to his fiance's parents' home for an engagement party he doesn't want. A states' prosecutor, he's about to try the biggest case of his career, he hates the distraction, and he's having doubts about the relationship.

They sit together on the plane, and discover they're on the same flight coming back. When the weekend is a disaster for each of them, they bond on the plane ride home. But life is full of complications, including their exes, who don't want to let go, and when Michael's trial turns dangerous, the two must confront what they value most in life...

After both having disastrous weekends with their intended, Michael and Juliana decide to become roommates, since Juliana doesn't really want to go back to the house she shares with Jeremy, her love of the past 10 years, and Michael has a huge house all to himself after breaking his 4 year relationship with Paige.  Juliana and Jeremy are in a state of limbo as Jeremy isn't sure he wants to have slept with only one woman his entire life.  Juliana gives him the "time off" he needs to get it together.  In the mean time, Juliana and Michael become more than friends, but when Michael's job becomes more dangerous, and Juliana is affected, he realizes their relationship has come to mean more to him than he realized.  Can he convince Juliana that she should choose him over Jeremy, who has been her one and only love for 10 years?

Notable Quote:
"She wasn't thrilled to discover you have a roommate, especially a female roommate."  He laughed. "I don't imagine she was.  I'll be home in about fifteen minutes."  "should I make popcorn?"  (banter with Michael and Juliana, with Paige coming for a visit)

This is one of those books that has it all.  There was something in it for everyone.  Love and romance, plus some intrigue and suspense, then toss in a court case, some angry mobsters and a crazy ex-fiance and you have another smash hit.  I do admit, there were a few times while reading that I was very angry at Marie Force, and was trying to figure out where she was going and how could she do such a thing, but in the end, it was perfect (and I forgive her lol).  I have said it before, on of the ways you can tell if your readers like your books is if you invoke emotions and this one definitely did.
