Overview

Compelling contemporary romance from New York Times and USA Today best-selling, award-winning author Marie Force.

What if the guy in the airplane seat next to you turned out to be the love of your life?

Juliana, happy in her career as a hair stylist, is on her way to visit her boyfriend of ten years who's working out of state. She's wondering why they're not engaged yet. Michael is going to his fiancée's parents' home for an engagement party he doesn't want. A states' prosecutor, he's about to try the biggest case of his career, he hates the distraction, and he's having doubts about the relationship.

They sit together on the plane, and discover they're on the same flight coming back. When the weekend is a disaster for each of them, they bond on the plane ride home. But life is full of complications, including their exes, who don't want to let go, and when Michael's trial turns dangerous, the two must confront what they value most in life...

Love At First Flight by Marie Force shows that love can happen when you least expect it. Baltimore attorney Michael Maguire is trying the biggest case of his young career. He really can't afford a weekend away but his fiancée Paige is demanding his presence in Jacksonville Beach Fla. Michael strikes up a conversation with his seat mate and discovers they are both in long distance relationships. Hairstylist Juliana Gregorio is flying to Fla. to spend the weekend with her long time boyfriend Jeremy. Jeremy has been away on a job for over seven months and Juliana feels they need to reconnect. Since both Juliana and Michael are returning on the same flight they agree to meet up again on Sunday. Neither weekend goes as planned. Michael's fiancée family tries once again to control him and he bulks and calls off the engagement. Jeremy reluctantly admits to wondering if the grass is greener on the other side since he and Juliana have dated for over ten years. Juliana wants them to take a three month break with no contact. The flight home is revealing for both Michael and Juliana. Michael offers her a place to stay since she doesn't want to return to the home she shared with Jeremy. Both are attracted to each other but their past still are playing havoc with their emotions. Michael's high profile case is causing danger to come extremely close to home. He is willing to do whatever it takes to keep his star witness and Juliana safe. But can he keep his heart safe when Juliana time limit to Jeremy is up? Love At First Flight is wonderful. Marie Force really makes you feel the gambit of emotions, the highs and the lows. You feel like these characters problems are real and they touch your heart. I feel in love with Ms. Force's work in Line Of Scrimmage and it continues in Love At First Flight. This is an author that is going places.

A MUST READ!!!!!!! This book is so amazing. I loved it. However I started to read "Everyone Loves a Hero" (also by Marie Force) and I realized at about the 15th page, that these characters were mentioned in that book, so I stopped reading that and started with this, and I'm so glad I did. It was just fantastic. I fell in love with Micheal from the very beginning. And for the record, Jeremy is a JERK

You are going to want this trip to last forever! Wonderfully written, the characters are so real and the romance is "first-class" all the way! Loved it!

What matters most Three love stories intertwine in this intriguing modern-day love story with that ever-elusive marriage proposal, or its absence, at the core. Juliana and Jeremy have been together for ten years. They’ve set up home. They’ve shared everything. And the future seems set. Meanwhile Michael and Paige are about to enjoy a high-class engagement party at Paige’s parents’ expense. Michael takes the same flight as Juliana, and temptation sneaks into security. In the end, life’s not about security of course. Juliana finds herself shaken when Jeremy reveals his own insecurities. Michael is shaken by Paige’s father’s assumptions. And everyone is shaken when Michael’s job as state prosecutor leads to guards around his home, witness protection and more. As real danger threatens, Michael and Juliana both find themselves re-examining what matters most to them. The author does a nice job of showing love’s different and shakiest foundations. The characters are convincing. The background trial is intriguing and scary. And the gentle touch of new love and burgeoning trust is very nicely done. For myself, I thoroughly enjoyed the tale, but ended up wondering just how many years of togetherness equate to commitment. Perhaps I just belong to the wrong generation. Love at First Flight is a pleasing love story, filled with complications, nicely balanced with a hint that at least some of our troubles come at our own hands, and beautifully located with enjoyable descriptions of town and countryside in the Eastern US. Disclosure: I was lucky enough to find a free ecopy of this novel and enjoyed reading it.

I enjoyed the realness of the emotions, true to life. However whati did not like in this book and others of the same genre is how quick the "I love you's" come when the characters have only known one another for a few weeks or so. The story line was great nonetheless and Juliana' s internal struggle over two men was on spot.

I have to say I almost gave up on this one...it was a little slow getting into it. But, once I did, I couldn't put it down. I loved the lawyer aspect- it added a flavor that is usually missing in the usual contemporary romance. I highly recommend it!

Marie Force is one of my favorite aurthors for a quick and easy read. Love at First Flight did not disappoint no matter that it was somewhat predictable. Great read if you just want to slip away and forget your real life for a while!

I just finished Love at First Flight! As with all your books I was riveted, laughing crying...and this time, and a little bit angry,at Juliana, for what I saw as a stupid move! But I quickly realized that it had to happen that way. Thank you Marie, for the countless sleepless hours and for once again falling in love with the characters you create to take me away and pull me in!.

This is another amazing love story by Marie Force.  One of the reviewers wrote she didn't like how quickly the "I love you" came out.  But sometimes that happens ... you know ... you just know this is the person you will spend your life loving.  It really happens in life and in wonderful love stories.  Besides I'm not looking to read a book I have to analyze, I want a good love story with some fantasy thrown in.  Buy the book, you won't regret it.
