Summary (from Goodreads):

A bad storm, two canceled flights, stuck in an airport with a hot stranger and the guy who broke her heart… what could go wrong?

After Sari caught her boyfriend Zev cheating on her, their romantic Florida vacation was ruined. She can’t get back to NYC soon enough. Unfortunately, mother nature may have different plans. A huge storm is brewing in the Northeast, and flights all over the country are getting canceled—including Sari’s. She winds up stuck at the airport for hours. With Zev!

When another stranded passenger (a hot NYU guy) suggests a connecting flight to Boston, Sari jumps at the chance. But when her mom freaks out about her traveling alone, she has no choice—she has to include Zev, and somehow survive being trapped with the guy who broke her heart!

Review: Airports, Exes, and Other Things I’m Over

I have read so many books about being stranded at an airport before, but I never seem to get sick of them. Airports, Exes, and Other Things I’m Over follows this trope, and it is just as enjoyable. The story is dramatic, and the characters are so sweet. This is a short and sweet contemporary that is the perfect pick-me-up.

❀ Stranded at an Airport

This book tells the story of a girl who is preparing to take off on a trip to Florida over spring break with her boyfriend, but catches him cheating just before they depart. Desperate to get away, she books an earlier flight. However, on the way back, a storm hits, leaving her (and her ex) stranded. I love the stuck in an airport trope, and this book was no exception. There is tension, but also plenty of fluff. If you enjoy books about travel, this is the perfect thing for you!

❀ Excellent Cast of Characters

There is an excellent cast of characters in this book. I enjoyed Sari, especially since she is a musician who needs to get home and catch her gig. She is pretty impulsive, but I enjoyed how she stands her ground and isn’t eager to take her ex back. My favourite character was probably Trina, Sari’s friend. I mean, this girl is a literal angel. She is so supportive without judging, and she is willing to do anything for her friend. Strong female friendships are something I always like to see, and this one is especially wholesome.

❀ A Dramatic Story

Airports, Exes, and Other Things I’m Over by Shani Petroff is a dramatic story about being stuck at the airport. I enjoyed the main character and the supportive friendship. This is a cute contemporary that I would definitely recommend this summer.
