"Houston, we have a major attraction."
After years of dealing with a heart condition and an overprotective mother, Airin Delaney is finally having her first taste of freedom in Waikiki - and it's intoxicating. But it's nothing compared to the out-of-this-world attraction between her and astronaut Hunter Bryce. Airin is determined to shoot for the stars and experience her first real kiss.
All Hunter has ever wanted is to explore the universe. That is, until a certain black-haired, wide-eyed beauty shakes him to the core. Hunter knows almost nothing about Airin, not even her last name. All he knows is that she's the kind of girl he could fall over-the-moon in love with. Unfortunately, the timing couldn't be worse. While Airin is celebrating her first night of freedom, Hunter is celebrating his last - before embarking on an eight-month mission.
It was only supposed to be one night. But sometimes that's all fate needs to change two lives forever.

Not one of her best
Not one of the best books but enjoyed it nonetheless. Audio book quality was good and made my way through the book in a few days

This is the first book I've read by Strom. Intriguing plot, good characters, and interested to read more!

The astronaut and the nerd
Sparks fly when astronaut, Hunter, encounters a shy young woman at a bar the night before he’s enclosed in a biosphere for an extended period. A car accident ensures that they’re together for an extended period but secrets between them may doom this couple.
I think this was my second book by Abigail Strom and it did not disappoint. In a "romance" genre things can become predictable and tedious (and that's fine, sometimes predictability is just what the doctor ordered - especially when things are anything but predictable IRL), I find that there is something fresh/different in her writing/stories. I can't put my finger on it yet...but there's just something fresh about them that makes me love it. I liked that both characters were strong and intelligent in this particular book. I liked the discussion about bigger issues (space exploration and the varying reasons behind it). I'm pretty sure I laughed out loud a few times too. Overall an entertaining listen/read.
