Can missing a fatal flight be the wake up call Harrison needs?
When Harrison Kelley is banned from getting on Flight HA1710, it seems to be the perfect ending to a crappy couple of days. Not only did he wreck a wedding, but he’s drunk way too much and been on the receiving end of the groom’s brother’s fists. Being escorted out of the airport by security was just the icing on the wedding cake.
Elijah Pettifer has lusted after Harrison from afar for years but Harrison never sees him as anything more than a friend. If he ever saw him at all. While attempting to defend what little honor Harrison has left, Elijah gets caught up in the wave of chaos surrounding his teenage crush. But missing his flight home because of Harrison’s mess might just be the luckiest thing to ever happen to him.
With a 24 hour ban imposed by the airport, and having only each other for company, the two men grow closer. But will the fate of the airplane they should have been on be the push Harrison needs to walk away from the toxic relationship of his past? And can Elijah make Harrison see exactly what he’s been missing out on because of it?
As the fourth book in the Flight HA1710 Series, this one not about a passenger on the plane, but about someone who misses the flight because of other circumstances. Harrison has been in love with Anthony his whole life. But, Anthony is marrying someone else. Someone being a woman. That doesn’t stop Anthony from propositioning Harrison the night before the wedding, but getting rejected. Things become chaotic when the bride thinks that the two men did spend the night together and Harrison gets blamed for the entire thing. Harrison gets drunk, ends up in a fist fight with Anthony’s brother, and then gets escorted out of the airport when he tries to go home, missing the doomed flight. The airport goes on lockdown after the crash, leaving passengers (including Harrison) trapped with nowhere to go.
Enter Elijah. He comes to his friend’s rescue, allowing Harrison to see him in a new light. Elijah has had feelings for Harrison for a long time, but Harrison’s on/off again thing with Anthony always stood in the way. Elijah convinces Harrison to be the better man and leave Anthony in the past.
I had mixed feelings about this story. On one hand, the plane crash is just a minor part in this story. On the other hand, I found it creative that the author told the tale of a character who ended up missing the flight and the repercussions of that act. Overall, this was a sweet, sensual, loving story between the latter two men that I really did enjoy.
