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.**

Review

I’ve adored L.H. Cosway’s world building, storytelling, and characters since I read the first book in her Hearts series. Cosway creates heroes and heroines who don’t fit stereotypical standards; in a way, they’re eccentric and a bit contrary but that only endears readers to them because they’re characters who are realistically flawed and deliberately sketched to promote how their peculiarities make them the people they are.

In the final book in the Hearts series, Cosway introduces readers to Trevor Cross and Reya Cabrera, illustrating how their friendship began and how one night changed every aspect of their relationship, in both positive and negative ways.

For three years, Trevor and Reya were best friends, secretly desiring more from each other, but when Trevor’s dreams are made a reality, he finds himself “running on air” and running away from what could have been a new beginning for them.

Two years and a significant amount of heartache later, Trevor and Reya have gone their separate ways, destroying an important friendship and shattering the chance of more simply because Trevor couldn’t make Reya a priority due to his impulsive and carefree personality.

Reya is quite the heroine; she’s had to deal with so much rejection given she’s only 26 years old, but she came to terms with being cast aside as best she could, moving forward with her music and her passions, finding a way to be who she is regardless of how other people react to her or treat her. She is definitely an introvert, but the way she expresses herself through her lyrics and words enables others to truly see her and all her brightness. Because readers are privy to all of her thoughts…all of her pain…all of her overwhelming feelings when it comes to how she feels about Trevor and what his abandonment did to her life, readers ache for her and yearn for her to get everything she’s always wanted in life, in love, and in her music.

Cosway does a good job of showing how Trevor grows up and changes his impulsive and chaotic personality, working to be the man Reya needs him to be and working to be the person he wants to be so that his life has some routine and purpose amidst the energy that flows around him. Trevor’s transformation moves both forwards and backwards as he works to control himself and alter his habits; he has a lot to make up for when it comes to Reya, and he knows that if he pushes her too far too fast, he may lose any chance at making things right with her and having the kind of future with her that he craves.

Hearts On Air is a slow burn romance that follows Trevor and Reya’s second chance at friendship and potentially at love. Reya is Trevor’s biggest regret and Trevor’s abandonment of Reya forced her to live even more isolated than she already had. Both characters have to come to terms with their past in order to focus on a future that includes one another because the bond they share means too much to simply throw away.

I enjoyed Trevor and Reya’s story, and even though there were parts that seemed to move a bit slowly and conflicts that seemed a bit anti-climactic, I appreciated that the focus always stayed on Trevor and Reya rebuilding their relationship, finding their way back to each other and proving to one another that their second chance would not be taken for granted.
