Release Blitz: Seat 2A by Dela

Title: Seat 2A
Author: Dela
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: March 27, 2017


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?

*~*~* 3 Stars *~*~* 

This was my first book by Dela and it was not quite what I was expecting. After reading the blurb, I was looking forward to a second chance love story and I thought a child might be involved, but that’s not exactly what happened.

The beginning of the book started out really good. I loved how Jessie and Kendal met and how they were instantly attracted to each other. The chemistry was off the charts and I thought a romance was starting. But then  some unexpected things happened then boom it’s seven years later and this is where the book went kind of down hill for me.

After seven years, Jessie and Kendal meet again. The little girl from the blurb is actually Kendal’s niece so I was a bit disappointed with that. Then finding out Jessie knew who Kendal was and never went after him was a let down. Then finding out Jessie has a boyfriend who she just up and decides she’s done after two years! Then there was all the unnecessary drama and back and forth issues and then Kendal’s commitment issues. I felt the story was completely all over the place at times. Sometimes I felt like I was reading about high school kids versus grown adults. I also felt there were a lot of things that should have been addressed and never were, and things that shouldn’t have been addressed that were taken too far. This story had great potential, but fell a little flat for me.
