I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
3 weeks. 5 cities. 15 impossible stunts. One reality show.
Trevor Cross came into Reya Cabrera’s world with a bang and faded out with a whimper. They vowed to make it work, but life had other plans. After chasing his TV dreams for years, Trev finally became the UK’s next big reality star, but he alienated his family and friends in the process. Now he finally has everything he ever wanted. Women. Money. Fame. But none of it means anything when he doesn’t have the one thing that matters most: love.
Money leaves a gaping hole. Fame surrounds him with loneliness. And no woman makes him feel like Reya used to before the whirlwind of success pulled them apart.
He has a plan to get her back. However, with a hectic filming schedule looming, the only way to do that is to convince her to come on the road with him. Reya has been stuck in a rut for a while, and the opportunity to travel across Europe and play her music for new audiences seems like heaven. The only catch? She has to do it with the one boy who ever got close enough to break her heart. But he’s not a boy anymore, and as she gets to know him again she can’t deny her respect for the man he’s become.
Every time she’s around him her heart feels full of air, like a balloon about to pop. Little does she know, Trev’s feelings are just as tumultuous as hers. One thing’s for sure, these three weeks on the road together will either make them whole again or break them irrevocably.
**Hearts on Air is a contemporary romance and book #6 in the Hearts series, however it can also be read as a complete standalone.**
I am a huge fan of this series, and LH Cosway has become one of my favorite authors. I was so excited to get another Cross brother story, and definitely wanted more of Trevor and Reya from the previous books.
“He smelled like home. He embraced me like love.”
This story starts out a few years after One Epic Night, Trevor and Reya’s prequel. Right away it’s clear these two have some formidable obstacles to overcome. Their one chance to make more of their friendship fell apart spectacularly, and now it’s hard for either to move forward. Trevor is still struggling with his ADHD, and Reya has lost all trust in someone wanting her and putting her first in life.
I really wanted to love this book, but I struggled. I loved Trevor and seeing more into his world of parkour. I understood his inability to let others in, afraid of not being enough especially when it came to Reya. His growth as a character was HUGE, and you could really feel his struggles when it came to managing the urges that came with his ADHD.
As much as I loved Trevor, I just could not relate to Reya or her insecurities. I didn’t feel their connection nearly enough. I felt like the story dragged and was a little all over the place. I was not a big fan of going back and forth between the past and present, and would have loved to have had some chapters from Trevor’s POV. I was more interested in the secondary characters story than I was the main couple (and yay for them getting their own book!).
Towards the end, it was lovely to catch up with the other couples from the series and see their interactions together. I love all the little nods from the previous books, I just wished I had gotten more from THIS story. I can’t believe this series has come to an end, but I look forward to the spin off series featuring a book for each of the new characters we meet in this book. While this story wasn’t a favorite of mine, this will continue to be one of my all-time favorite series.
