A heartwarming love story about funny and sweet Sinead and overworked CEO Gabriel. I loved this story from the beginning until The End. It is mostly funny, includes some sexy scenes and has a few serious matters in it as well, but that never gets too much. Once started, you can’t put it down! I received a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review.
Plane O ’Girl (Disclaimer: I was provided a copy of the book. I read it and decided to provide my honest review.) Girl On Plane: A sexy, sassy, holiday read by Cassandra O’Leary is a delicious and hilarious book that you cannot miss reading. The author has shown her hand at being able to create characters with real depth and breadth, but it is the fabulous dialogue that wraps around the writing that makes the book a must-read. Sinead, the main character, is a hit in my parade. Her character is a strong, independent, smart, witty, engaging, sexy, headstrong woman. Yet, she is not afraid to giggle, forgiving and vulnerable. Girl On Plane has all the boxes checked on what makes a great cozy romance. My RECOMMENDATION: Buy the book and read it! Don’t miss out on a simple joy that you will probably at some point re-read. –Tex.
What a smart, fun summer read (or for any time of year). Sinead Kennealy has had her fill of first class passengers of the alpha male variety. But when Gabriel Anderson and Sinead end up waiting out a typhoon together their chemistry is undeniable. This book had just the right amount of steamy sex and well thought out characters. Their story was hard to put down and their journey to allowing themselves to love was wonderful. I highly recommend this book.
Reviewed by Sarah Stuart for Readers' Favorite Girl on a Plane by Cassandra O’Leary features Irish Sinead Kennealy, a head flight attendant dodging an abusive ex-lover with stalking tendencies. As a consequence, she is off men, or she is until she falls into the lap, literally, of a First Class passenger when Mermaid Flight 180 from Melbourne to London hits turbulence. Rich Australian businessman, Gabriel Anderson, has troubles of his own, but finds his jaded appetite for women revives when he sees Sinead. A diversion to Singapore leaves them stranded overnight at the airport, mistakenly booked into the same suite, which Sinead isn’t about to give up, or share with a male stranger however attractive and sexy. Gabriel is in desperate need of love and support himself, but will he open up and tell Sinead what he fears most, or is any possibility of a committed relationship doomed? Showtime! Incredibly, that is what Mermaid Airlines expects of its female flight attendants. Read Cassandra O’Leary’s brilliantly funny introduction to Sinead in Girl on a Plane and you’ll never sit through an emergency "drill" again without laughing. The storyline is intriguing, not funny, but it is sexy. Ms O’Leary’s warning to readers that her novel is a bumpy ride is justified. Bumpy, yes, but Girl on a Plane is fast-paced, character-driven, and believable but unpredictable. No one person can have based so many different aspects of life, and love, on experience, so this light-hearted story must have taken time to research. Cassandra O’Leary’s writing is captivating and I look forward to reading more from this talented author.
This is the kind of book that makes you want to travel... Irish born Sinead Kennealy is an air hostess with Mermaid airlines, the style of airline that makes me think of Virgin airlines. Full of perkiness and quirkiness. In fact we get to see Sinead doing the macarena to entertain the passengers on take-off warming them up for the safety spiel that seasoned travellers usually ignore. One of the 1st class passengers is Aussi Gabriel Anderson, CEO of a travel dot com. He's grumpy but gorgeous. When a typhoon strands them in Singapore, he has even more reason to be grumpy. Thrown together, these two strike sparks straight away but both have baggage that makes anything further between them unlikely. Except that for both of them, there is an elusive something that brings them back together once they reach London. From there we have a push me pull you thing happening as they both combat the disasters of the past and the fears for the future. We get to meet Gabriel's friend Ryan, who I'm assuming will have a book of his own because why else would he be so intriguing. We also get to meet some of Sinead's family and some not so pleasant characters from past and present. There is also the travel component...five countries visited and several more mentioned. The romance between Gabriel and Sinead is very sweet and while Gabriel is rich and powerful, he isn't an obnoxious alphajerk. Sinead is a nice balance of tough and vulnerable. Both of them have insecurities that impact on the progress of their romance. The story has a lightweight feel to it with lots of humour, but does deal with some heavy issues along the way. Overall this was a very enjoyable read that kept me interested right to the end. I requested a copy of this book through Netgalley for review.
