Synopsis

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?

Review

I love a good second chance romance.  And that’s exactly what Laura Barnard delivered.  Excess Baggage is a solid, well-written story.  It has its cute moments, its funny moments, and its sweet moments.  There was quite a few times where I got annoyed with the characters.  For supposedly being in their late twenties/early thirties they were childish and immature.  They’re great apart from each other—well written and complex but together?  They regressed back to their teenage selves.  It would make more sense if they were in their early twenties.

Despite my annoyance with the characters, it was a pretty enjoyable read.  It’s light, easy, and low on the angst.  There is some drama (hence the feeling like they weren’t in their thirties).  And there was one secondary character I just couldn’t stand.  But overall, it’s a solid story.  I’ll definitely be checking out what else Barnard has to offer.  -Peace and Love, Buxom J
