Seat 2A by Dela
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
➳Dela not only brings a new contemporary romance to dive in for, but she also brings messages of second changes and how powerful they can be when you meet your one true love in this magnificent love story of Jessie and Kendall…
➳Meeting as a form of destiny and fate is what Jessie and Kendall experience. Their encounters are ones that you really do not see so often, but yet again this is a fictional story after all. However, the plot twists and different view points are what make this story beyond compelling and emotional. Not only do blockades become a mayor factor for both characters, but they also become a thriven truth of what their paths are meant to be and how they go there. After finding out that her boyfriend was cheating on her, Jessie decides to leave early and visit her friend in Canada for her wedding weekend. During that time of waiting at the airport, Jessie encounters a cocky man who definitely does not need his ego boosted or rubbed- Kendall. At first, first name encounters are off the table. They get to know each other personally. The power of trusting each other is there, making them both very likable due to their common interests. Though they are both flying to the same place, their paths separate throughout the story, but rekindle again in ways that one would not expect.
➳After an unfortunate incident that happened to Kendall, his departure away from the strong chemistry he had for Jessie had to take a pause. Though this said incident took place, his mind was filled with those small memories of Jessie with him during his small visit and “mancation” in Canada. Time passes, three years really, and Kendall and Jessie reunite once again due to fate and total coincidence. However, Jessie now has a future in which her past lead her to. A present and a future in which she has to question now with the re-appereance of Kendall.
➳Overall this was such a sweet and romantic story. I was definitely not expecting anything from what the plot twists portrayed and Dela did just such an incredible job writing that. This book kept me on my toes and kept me wanting to turn the page for the finale. I highly recommend this book if you are looking for a second chance type of story.
