Hearts on Air (Hearts #6) by L.H. Cosway


Goodreads 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.**
 



BLOWN. AWAY.

If the air is a street.
Then the clouds are a path.
And your feet so easily close the distance.

Reya and Trevor have a complex relationship. With such subtle nuances that it is hard to pull it all apart at once. A book to be read more than once to fully understand how they are feeling. I was torn between reconciling between what happened in the past and to what happened in the present with our two star crossed birds.

A battle between head and heart. I felt Reya's struggle every step of the way. Although blown away I personally didn't need to have read That One Night in parts it ruined the book for me. I also didn't particularly need to see flash backs to the past. On the one hand, it added to the story of the book but it also tore me away from how their friendship/relationship developed in the now.

How this book touched every part of me. With so many feels involved Ms. Cosway manages to tickle all the unwanted and wanted emotions out of me. I was fascinated by these two right from the beginning. They have a unique friendship where they fought for a very long time against crossing that line.

This book won't work for everyone. A lot of readers have a problem with Trevor throughout the other books. It is hard to get a read on him. He did string Reya on for a long time and Reya tried to come to terms with it. But by the time Trevor showed interest it was all torn apart. He gave up Reya for fame and fortune. I actually get Trev’s reasons behind where he tried to keep his distance but the road to hell is paved with good intentions but however noble is intentions were meant to be they ruined a lot for both of them. Trev is strange, unpredictable, beautiful flawed man.


Reya had stability she needed until that one night where everything changed. She lost everything. Trevor didn't have the best upbringing but the Cross family is spectacular to watch together. Whereas Reya had no family to turn to.

Astranged yet they get reacquainted with Reya accompanying them on shooting through Europe as one of their PAs although she really didn't do a lot. It's time to make amends. Trev goes above and beyond. If somebody makes it so that I can get away with wearing slippers outdoors I'm all for that shit. Believe me Reya so am I.

L.H Cosway is one of my favourite authors. Flawless writing with characters where you'd think it wouldn't work but it does. I can’t wait to read more of her awesomeness. I loved that the books are based in London. I love all her characters and we saw all the characters from previous books here. It was good to catch up you know. But the best thing?

New series, happy days peeps.
