A series of chance encounters leads to a sizzling new romance from the New York Times bestselling author of the On Dublin Street series.

The universe is conspiring against Ava Breevort. As if flying back to Phoenix to bury a childhood friend wasn't hell enough, a cloud of volcanic ash traveling from overseas delayed her flight back home to Boston. Her last ditch attempt to salvage the trip was thwarted by an arrogant Scotsman, Caleb Scott, who steals a first class seat out from under her. Then over the course of their journey home, their antagonism somehow lands them in bed for the steamiest layover Ava's ever had. And that's all it was--until Caleb shows up on her doorstep.

When pure chance pulls Ava back into Caleb's orbit, he proposes they enjoy their physical connection while he's stranded in Boston. Ava agrees, knowing her heart's in no danger since a) she barely likes Caleb and b) his existence in her life is temporary. Not long thereafter Ava realizes she's made a terrible error because as it turns out Caleb Scott isn't quite so unlikeable after all. When his stay in Boston becomes permanent, Ava must decide whether to fight her feelings for him or give into them. But even if she does decide to risk her heart on Caleb, there is no guarantee her stubborn Scot will want to risk his heart on her....

Ava is about to fly back home from Phoenix to Boston. She's been in town for a difficult family situation and she's pretty stressed already. That's when she runs into this hot guy with his sexy scottish accent. He's hot and sexy and ... nothing more! He's an idiot! Every single time she comes across him at the airport, he's such an ... grrrrrrr!
And then they even end up sitting next to each other on the plane!
Let the fun times begin! Because next to all those insults ... the sparks are flying too!

What will happen with Ava & Caleb??
Will there be a Happy End??

Awwww that was soooo adorably hilarious!!
I just adored everything about Ava and Caleb from the very first moment!
You start reading and you just love those two. Caleb is so over-the-top rude to Ava. He thinks she's this little rich girl with her expensive designer clothes. And of course Ava insults him right back. I laughed all through the beginning of the book.
But the book has some not so funny moments too. We go back in time a few times. Back to teenager Ava and her two best friends. And there are some other exciting and even scary moments along the way.
But mostly it's about Ava and Caleb and how they're dealing with not wanting anything serious, but at the same time, they can't stay away from each other. I just loved their foreplay fighting!
Getting those two to their happily ever after will not be easy! ☺

We also get to know some more people. Like Ava's bestie Harper - I really hope we'll get her book too ... and Leo and Caleb's siblings - especially JAMIE!
(If we don't get at least Harper's book, I would have to complain that we heard a tiny little bit too much about her life in this book!)
And while I'm complaining about things. I think the mega-rom-com-ness from the beginning gets a bit lost along the way. I would've loved some more of that sprinkled along the story. BUT ... the story was amazing the way it was... I just missed the fun a little bit ... The book was maybe a bit too long, with all their back and forth  ...

Still - amazing book. I even shed some tears! ☺
I loved Ava & Caleb and I need more from that world!

And I soooo need to see this on Netflix or the big screen!
With Sam Heughan and ... I would say a young Reese Witherspoon maybe. ☺

FIGHT OR FLIGHT was the most adorably hilarious & serious & adorable Rom-Com. Run to your nearest amazon for your own sexy Scot - he'll be sold out in no time! ☺

ARC received for an honest review

I love bit of rom-com.  I love everything I have read by Samantha Young.  Samantha Young gives me a rom-com?  Woo hoo!

And one with a Hot Scot?

Right from the get go, I was hooked on Fight Or Flight.  Oh, the antaganism between Caleb and Ava, what amazing foreplay! As much as Caleb made me made on Ava's behalf, I couldn't help but love the man 😍😍😍

I lost count of how many times I laughed out loud at his OTT rudeness.

However, what I wasn't expecting was so much emotion.  Yes, this is a romcom, however the story delved into some highly emotional events, and I am not going to lie, I did shed a tear or few at times.

We have some ab fab secondary characters.  Ava's best friend Harper is the kind of besty we all need in our lives.  She needs a story of her own

And I hope that we get more of Caleb's siblings stories - especially Jamie (another hot scot called Jamie? let me at him!)

I thoroughly enjoyed Fight Or Flight, and I can't wait to see what Ms Young brings us next.
