Stuck in a dead-end relationship, Erica Bennett finds herself daydreaming of her first holiday romance. She was fifteen, it was exciting, new and full of possibilities…and Jack Lawson was hot as hell. That kind of thing leaves a mark.
So when her friends suggest a girls holiday to Luna Island, it’s exactly what she needs to take her mind off things. What she doesn’t expect is to spot Jack – a much older, hotter version of him – across the hotel lobby.
Their attraction is still there and it isn’t long before sparks fly, but fifteen years is a long time. They aren’t the same people they were back then and besides, it’s only a week, right?
Is it a second chance at something real or will their excess baggage ruin their shot at love after they leave Luna Island?

I have read several books by Laura now and can tell instantly that I am going to be flung through a myriad of emotions, mainly huge guffaws! This is a light hearted story involving second chance romance. Erica has been caring for her mother while she was getting chemo so her friends figured a break in the sun would be beneficial. So off they head for a week on Luna island, all looking forward to sun, sea and sex. But to Erica’s horror when they are checking in she spots Jack, her one and only first love who broke her heart when she was fifteen. What follows is a week of mayhem, poor Erica is somewhat accident prone and seems to have a penchant for flashing her tits to all and sundry. There are some magical hilarious moments which lurch to downright cringeworthy but you can’t help rooting for the hapless girl. Her group of friends spend a lot of time with Jack’s group and have a wonderful time. Can Erica resist Jack now she is older and wiser or will her heart continue to flutter? If you are searching for a fun filled book brilliantly written, easy to read that has all the requirements for a beach read then look no further than Excess Baggage because this hits the spot on so many levels. I’m really hoping Laura writes the next potential book in the series. Thanks for my ARC which I read and revised voluntarily.
