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?

One seat change, one cookie shared, leads to promises!
I would like to think that Fate brought Kendal and Jessie together, but changed her mind shortly afterwards. Why would Fate do that!? I'll tell you why! Kendal was not ready to commit to being a boyfriend, and certainly not ready to be a husband! Jessie wanted what her friend Regina had! A loving relationship, stability, and a ring on her finger! Soo.. I think Fate decided that the couple needed some time and space apart.
Life carries on, but Kendal can't forget about the girl he met on the plane. The one he called "Doe". Jessie can't forget about Kendal, the carriage ride in Whistler, or promises made on a snowy night. I crossed my fingers, and hoped that they would meet again! After all, it was one seat change, and one shared cookie that led to the start of their relationship.
I really enjoyed this second chance romance! I loved the little surprises the author shared throughout the story.The characters were all very likable! This was a sweet romance with some heat.
