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?

I enjoyed this book for the most part.  It was funny for the most part.  However, there were a few things that needed work.  This story is told in both POV which I don't mind, but I would finish Jessie's POV to then turn around and read the same scene but from Kendal's view.  It was very confusing toward the end.  There were also a few parts in the book that seemed unnecessary.  I did finish this book in one day, it was a fast and easy read.  It had me laughing in parts but there were times I would like to have strangled Jessie! 
We find Jessie headed to her best friend's wedding in Canada.  Kendal is headed for a mancation and meet up with his buddies.  Kendal first bumps into Jessie and takes off only to find out that they are on the same plane, so he changes his seat.  The same goes for their connecting flight.   I liked their connection from the beginning.  Kendal is to be Jessie's date to the wedding but there's an emergency back home in New York and he has no choice but to fly out.  Not having Jessie's number or even her real name, he has no way of contacting her.  
Later, Jessie finds out who Kendal really is but doesn't go after him.  Kendal however, can't get Jessie out of his head but after hiring a private investigator, he cannot find her.  Seven years later, they bump into each in Portland.  They still seem to have a connection but Kendal has a little girl with him who looks just like him.  Have these two missed their chance?
