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.**

3,5-4 STARS Hearts on Air is my first L.H. Cosway’s book, and it was a wonderful surprise. But before sharing my review, I’d like to point out a thing that really seemed unfair to me: I don’t get how people can rate a book as soon as the blurb is out, without reading it, without giving it a chance. So yes, I understand that some readers disliked Trev in the series, and they are free to NOT give this story a chance but, don’t rate a book without reading it. Like I said, I didn’t read any book in the Hearts Series, but I wanted to try this one, since I was given the opportunity to do it. The Hearts Series was on my “Want to Read List”, and I knew about Trev and Reya “background”. This was not the first time I’ve read a book about a couple I didn’t like in other series. Again, PVO is crucial in a story, and in previous books, we only got Trev ad Reay story through the hero/heroin of each book. The same way we get hints of the futures series in this one, with Callum and Leanne. We want to punch Callum in the throat, but we don’t know what really happens between those two. So bat to AIRS ON AIR: I LOVED L.H. writing and she did what seemed almost impossible, seeing all the apprehensive posts: making me loving and understanding Trev. Like I said, POV is so important. That’s how we get on character’s shoes/head/heart. That’s how we can understand the way they acted, the decisions they made. And this story is so beautiful. You have so many feelings, longing, this journey is about forgiveness, growing up, closure, dealing with family and health issues, and of course second chances, with wonderful moments of tenderness and passion. The only “but” would be the whole Reya’s family/past part, I think it should have been a little more developed. All in all, a great surprise, and of course, I’m totally going to read the whole series!
I'm a huge fan of the hearts series and while I'm pretty sure Jay is always be my favorite, Trevor came in a close second. Amazing book!
Two years ago Reya and Trev moved their friendship to another level. It was also the time when Trev's dream of his own parkour reality show came true. This should have been the happiest time of their life but real life crept in fast and their budding relationship fizzled out. Reya was left broken hearted over the loss of her best friend and her love. Two years later Trev asks her for a second chance to fix their friendship. He offers her a job as a PA for the parkour team for their Europe tour and after a lot of hesitation she agrees to take the chance. It helps that her own career as a musician is stagnating and obviously going nowhere. It stings that Trev is successful and her own career is going nowhere. The prospect of playing in joints of different European countries holds great appeal and would mean more exposure for her music. But there is the issue of not letting Trev in again. Spending three weeks with Trev and being close to him for an extended period? It will take everything to resist this cheeky, charming and intense guy. Reya still hurts and Trev makes it hard to keep him at arms' length. How long will she be able to resist? Reya's pain is so obvious from the start, I felt it with her. She has never moved on from Trev. As long as they were friends she'd always avoided letting her feelings for Trev venture into a territory they have no business to go when you want to stay friends so there is a lot of regret on her behalf. On this trip she doesn't only learn a lot about her best friend, she learns about herself and that she misjudged Trev's flightiness and unreliability. He impresses her with his new maturity, she gets a whole new appreciation for his condition. Above all though, she still loves Trev - it has always been him. She stands loyal by him even if she is at odds with where their relationship should go. Reya is a tender-hearted girl but she has a backbone of steel even when she feels she is weak. Reya also has to deal with her estrangement from her own family. Her story is sad and you can only shake your head when you see the sanctimony and cruelty of her own flesh and blood. Trev has come a long way from the cheeky, flighty, hyperactive, thoughtless guy he used to be. Learning about ADHD and how to deal with it on a daily basis has made him more mature and calmer than he used to be. He still has that cheekiness about him that I have come to love from the first time he appeared in Hearts of Blue but there is a new depth to him. He is grounded, solid and he kept impressing me with how much thought he gave to the things Reya said. When it comes to her he would give up everything, his selflessness was beautiful. Trev tries so hard to become the person Reya needs and it is obvious to everyone how very much in love he still is with his girl, except to the woman herself. It is tangible how he is pining for Reya and how much he worships her. When it finally works out for them they both realize that the separation was actually a blessing - neither of them was ready back then and had the tools to deal with the consequences of Trev's condition. I adored Reya's and Trev's relationship and how their love was so obvious. It was understandable that she didn't want to fall into old patterns and (unsuccessfully) kept an emotional distance from Trev. This book is a worthy conclusion of an amazing series. I have come to love the uniqueness of L.H. Cosway's characters. I was enraptured and completely immersed in the story
I seriously LOVE this series hard and I really wanted Trev and Reya have their happy ending, so I totally enjoyed this torturously angsty story. Trevor Cross thought fame and fortune would make him happy. He even withdrew from his family and the only woman who’s truly made him feel whole and content to pursue his TV dreams. He found out the hard way that these things are no substitute for love and now he’s determined to make things right and he’s going to make his tight schedule work in his favor. Or at least he’ll try. Can he convince Reya to come with him and his crew on a trip across Europe? Three weeks. That’s all the Reya Cabrera has to withstand being in close quarters with the man who broke her heart. It’s really just a blip of time considering all the time and backstory they have together, it’ll give her a chance to get out of the tedious routine she’s been stuck in and give her the chance to play her music for new listeners. Can she survive being in Trevor’s presence, or will the forced proximity allow her to get to know her former best friend all over again and perhaps provide them with a second chance? Second chances tend to be bittersweet, but there’s also beauty in understanding, forgiveness and love, all of which are wonderfully shown in Trevor and Reya’s story along with strong family ties and brilliant happy ever afters. L.H. Cosway’s stories always score big with me. She has mastered the ability to create complex characters you can relate with, creating a story that’s impossible not to love. Hearts on Air is classic L.H. Cosway with just the right amount of angst, romance, sexiness and action all woven into an original plot with parkour masters and changing backdrop full of beautiful imagery without forgetting the Trevor and Reya’s story is about pursuing a second chance at love however complicated that may be. Reya very easy to like. She’s a regular gal with issues she’s worked through with the help of her friends, holding on to what she knows is true, surviving and coming out the other end fairly well. And although she’s self-deprecating, she also has a good dose of self-respect and knows she deserves to be someone’s first priority. I loved that she loved Trev but wouldn’t let him treat her as an afterthought. You may know that as orphans, Trevor and his brothers struggled as kids to get by. Even though Trevor was one of the youngest Cross siblings, he was still embroiled in illegal activities in order to survive until his late teens. Add to that the fact that he had undiagnosed ADHD until he started the reality TV show and you have one very complicated and intense man. And although the story is told from Reya’s perspective the strength of Trevor’s feelings towards her come through. I really enjoyed the friends to lovers and slow burn nature of their relationship, building up a passionate romance. I loved every single interaction between them. There’s so much awesomeness to talk about this book. The locations, the new characters that help set the stage for this series spinoff, the amazing tricks, but what I loved the most apart from the romance was reading about all the other characters in the Hearts series. I don’t want to spoil anyone so I’ll just say that is was really fun having Trev and Jay hit it off and that L.H. Cosway comes full circle with all the stories and closes the series marvelously. Hearts on Air is book #6 in the Hearts series by L.H. Cosway. It is a standalone romance.
Favorite Quotes: I need you, Reya, just for tonight. Just give me tonight and then you can decide if you want to keep me. My sister, Paula, used to say I had childbearing hips, but they were cake hips and we both knew it. All men love it when women speak Spanish. All women love it when men speak French. It’s written in the code of our DNA… I bet if you studied a double helix real close you’d find it somewhere… This happened to your right hand because God’s been watching you in the shower. Let it be a lesson. I’d thought saying I loved him would imprison me, but instead it set me free. My Review: I have only read two of the exceptionally entertaining books in this series and have savored them both. I have an overwhelming and greedy desire to collect and read every book this gifted author ever writes. Ms. Cosway’s skill is extraordinary and her unique stories take me to places and involve activities I would never consider partaking in, yet surprisingly enjoyed reading about. Her work is detailed, observantly insightful, amusing, engrossing, and plucks at the heartstrings. I enjoy her clever use of humor as much as I adore her complicated and flawed yet highly endearing characters. Added bonus, I have a new Brit vocabulary phrase to add to my list – keeping schtum – which means being silent, or, as we Americans would say – zip your lip.
