Review—Fight or Flight by Samantha Young

Rating: 5 Stars



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….
I’ve been looking for a book like this for such a long time... Okay, just kidding, I’m a bookworm! It’s only been a few days (since I finished my last great read) and I needed a story that would completely consume me. I decided that Samantha Young would be next—most of her books always make me feel good. It has swoony romance, hot as hell heroes, and heroines that are completely relatable. 

Ava is seriously my favorite part of the whole book. She’s smart and independent but also had a vulnerability that made her seem more human. She’s one of those characters that I automatically feel a sense of loyalty to. Such as hating any and every character whose ever done her wrong—even to those in the future who will no doubt do something to hurt her. Yes, I like her that much! She gave as good as she got and I can totally appreciate a girl who can hold her own. 

Caleb. Wow. This man came in at a close second to my favorite character. He’s a huge dickhead when we first meet him but it’s nice to see that he can’t resist the wonderful Ava—no matter how hard he tries. And he’s Scottish! Hot the nth degree. 

If you’re looking for a fun enemies-to-lovers/fuck buddies romance, this is so for you! I mean, it’s hella entertaining from start to finish. Did I mention the hero is like a certain character from Outlander? And that he’s 100% alpha hotness? Well, he is! If that doesn’t make you want to read it even more, I don’t know what will. 

*Thank you to the publisher for providing a copy for an honest and unbiased review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
