eBook Description: After being stood up at the altar, compulsive over-planner Elliott Chandler decides to turn a honeymoon on Oahu into a vacation for one. Fate puts a hitch in his plans, however, when the airport is snowed in and his flight is delayed.
In the airport, the jilted groom catches the eye of another stranded traveler--the laidback and very sexy Derek Windsor. Derek breaks the ice and strikes up a conversation, and as the temperature drops outside, the heat between them rises. Pity they're both going to different islands, but if their flight doesn't leave soon, Mr. Calm-and-Cool may just tempt Mr. Play-It-Safe to do something reckless.
And that plane isn't going anywhere any time soon...

"4 Stars!...I have reviewed a number of books by L. A. Witt and I really like her writing. In Getting Off The Ground she came up with another enjoyable story and two well-rounded characters. A fun book and both guys were sex on a stick, each looking for a no strings sexual encounter. L. A. Witt packed a lot into it and into her characters. If you're looking for a fun read for a couple of hours you should pick up Getting Off The Ground."--Wave, Reviews By Jessewave
"A- Rating!...This story really worked for me...sizzling sexual chemistry between the two men. They spend quite a bit of time flirting and getting to know each other and the build up is wonderful. When they finally get to act on all that buzzing sexual desire it's explosive, but also surprisingly emotional and tender. A pretty terrific story of chance-meets and the promise of more and I'd recommend it for those looking for a hot short with sympathetic characters."--Jenre, Brief Encounters Reviews "5 Hearts!...L. A. Witt shows what a great writer she is with this novella...shows her skill through wonderfully written settings and witty dialogue. The main character, Elliott, has his funny little quirks that make him likeable right from the start. The next installment in this story cannot come out fast enough for this reader."--Angel, The Romance Studio
He was way too alert to be drugged but appeared, aside from momentary displays of frustration with his game, completely relaxed and unperturbed.
He must have been one of those people who didn't get pissed off in traffic jams, either. One of those aggravatingly relaxed ones who just turned up the radio, tapped the beat into the steering wheel with his thumbs, all the while reminding himself over and over, "I'll get there eventually, no sense getting stressed over it." I, meanwhile, would be three cars back, white-knuckling the wheel and praying for sweet death if it meant not sitting there for another two minutes. Once our plane finally boarded and took off, this guy would probably be sound asleep for the entire flight while I drummed my fingers and tried in vain to get comfortable.
His eyes flicked up and met mine, and I quickly shifted my gaze away, my cheeks burning as I wondered just how long I'd been absently staring at him.
It wasn't only his relaxed state that had drawn my attention. He was definitely easy on the eyes. The loose sleeves of his Hawaiian shirt were just short enough to hint at his well-toned biceps, and his sculpted forearms, tanned and lightly dusted with dark blond hair, didn't belong to someone who spent all his time fucking off playing video games. His legs were similarly toned and bronzed. Chiseled jaw, prominent cheekbones, and--
And I was staring again.
