Spotlight Review: The Layover by L. Loren

A powerful novel from an author who many will love. This is romance, love, and life at it’s very best. “The Layover” from L. Loren is a hit from the very first word. 

“The Layover” is one of the most powerfully emotional and honest novels I’ve ever read. It is the story of the resilience of the heart, even in the face of devastating loss, and of how the capacity to hope and courage to love, despite all risk, define us as human. This is love and lust at its literary best.

Lynn Sutton lives a great life, with the smarts to match and no strings attached. As the successful owner of a luxury travel concierge service, she is building an empire that only a goddess like her can handle. Until one day, life throws the ultimate curve ball when she loses her only sister in a tragic car accident, and becomes the sole guardian of her niece and nephew. After years of focusing solely on the twins and her career, Lynn is left with the empty nest syndrome when the twins go off to college. She decides it’s time to refocus on herself and her love life. And she’s got her sights set on one man. That man is Connor.

It’s very rare to read a page-turner of a novel that not only entertains, but also lays bare raw, and very honest, emotions – from hopelessness and despair to elation and joy. “The Layover” is that rare book that stays with you long after you finish reading it, and makes you think about what is most important in your life. It’s a beautifully written story, its language both straightforward and poetic. With descriptions that are as vividly drawn as the authors thoughts and emotions.

I must mention Connor Wyatt. For me he was an excellent character who has been given all the hallmarks of success—but has never managed to fall in love. He desperately wants a family and when his marriage breaks up he rediscovers how exciting can be with Lynn.  He is such a strong character I was hooked on every word written about him.

This author surprised me. I was entranced with her characters, their chemistry and the way she put emotions to paper. This is a book that you should be reading. Beautiful writing does not do it justice. I would read more form this author and have no issue at all with giving her five stars!
