I'm sorry but this wasn't a winner for me. This book has a lot of potentials when it comes to premise. However, I'm quite sad that it didn't meet my expectations. The writing style of the author is beautiful and very easy to read and I have no problem with that, but then, I don't know why I find it hard to connect with the characters, especially Rose Morgan.

The story was interesting in the beginning but as it progressed, it didn't appeal to me anymore. The plot progression was a bit slow and I g

When I finished this book I was like "Man... where can I get myself a handsome, sweet, responsible Irish guy???"

Sometimes I wonder why I bother trying new authors, especially in the dreaded M/F, new adult contemporary genre. Do I like disappointment?? Do I enjoy feeling underwhelmed? No, honestly. It is just that the NA genre has been hot for a few years now, and I'm always seeking actually GOOD books that fall into this category. They are just few and far between.

Often, a book will fail for me because the author's writing style is clumsy or hard to read. This isn't the case with this book. The writing s
This book wasn't as depressing a read as I feared it would be before picking it up, though I wouldn't label it as light, either. It is a story of lost dreams, self-discovery, friendship and courage, all mixed together in a sweet New Adult romance.

Rose seems to have drawn the short straw in life. With an absent father and a manipulative, and dependent and depressed mother, her schoolfriends scattered in colleges throughout the country while she's stuck in a tedious waitressing job in her little h

4 sweet and endearing stars. Rose and Declan have a rather interesting first meeting as he saves her from a guy at the bar she would rather not be talking to. The spark between them is instant, an awareness of sorts, that worries Rose just a bit. I found Declan really allowed Rose to be "set free" from the chains her mother has her locked in. Overall, it was a lighter read but nonetheless entertaining and pleasurable. Simply put, I liked it and would read more by this author.
3.5/5 Stars

A story based on self discovery, finding hope, friendship and love. A cute winter afternoon read.

Her mother is emotionally dependent and manipulative, making Rose feel guilty for wanting more.

I received a copy of this book by the author for a review and once I read the synopsis I knew I had to read it. Come one, a hot Irishman? Sign me up! I expected this to be a cute love story between two characters that I would really enjoy and I did, but it was so much more. This book isn't just about a romance between Rose and the sexy Irish Declan, it's about finding yourself and learning to be brave. I fell in love with this story and am so thankful for the chance to read it. Thank you, Marie ...more

Review: 4 out of 5 stars

I am such a huge fan of Marie, she is an amazing author and a fantastic blogging friend so I was quite eager to read Something in the Air and it didn’t fail to disappoint.

I needed a light-hearted read at this time and despite their being a few confrontations and a bit of angst between the main character Rose Morgan and her mother, it was nothing over the top or dramatic which I appreciated.

Twenty year old Rose is more or less stuck in a rut, working for the local diner, w

I loved “Something in the Air” and really enjoyed reading Rose and Declan’s story. Marie Landry did an excellent job with the storyline and characters, and I loved her writing style. Rose and Declan were truly amazing, and I loved their personalities and chemistry together. They were both easily relatable characters, and I couldn’t help but fall in love with them. Their relationship moved a little fast,

Having read some of Marie's other books, there was no chance I was going to pass up the opportunity to read her latest book, Something in the Air. When I began reading it was clear that I was going to enjoy this book.

We start the book with Rose, she is a waitress in a job that was meant to be temporary, three years later she is still there, stuck in a rut. She lives at home with her Mum, and chose to stay rather than go to college or travel after her parents divorced. Now she feels that she can'

When I was approached to give this book a read I of course hopped over to check out the synopsis. I'm not going to lie to you, I read hot Irishman and things went a bit blurry. I had to restrain myself from adding him to the book boyfriend list just from the synopsis.
Nope. I held strong. I settled in for a good read and gosh I think I was a complete goner the very first time we "hear" Declan speak.

My Thoughts:

I have had the wonderful opportunity to not only become friends with Marie Landry, but also her critique partner. I got to see the first part of this story early on and I've been in love with it since the beginning.

Rose is a character you can easily relate to because everyone has something in their life that has caused them to feel out of control. She starts taking a step outside her comfort zone with the help of her be

I’ve been a fan of the New Adult genre ever since it started sprouting up a few years ago, but something that set this book apart that I really liked was that it wasn’t set on a college campus. Of course the campus setting makes a lot of sense since many people the age of New Adult protagonists are in college (I should know, I’m writing this review from my dorm room), but that’s not the path of everyone. I really liked how Landry explored this in the novel because protagonists who are already in ...more

A wonderful and almost magical read from Marie Landry!

The book starts off on a whimsical note - one of Rose's regulars at her diner is dressed to the nine's, and he tells her there is "something in the air". From there, a beautiful story starts to unfold. A story about making changes and getting out of ruts and pursuing dreams.

Rose has a complicated relationship with her mother who has turned into something of a needy, sometimes hateful, depressed mess. Her best friend Dante pushes Rose to get o

This was a fantastic read!! I loved the writing style and felt like I could really relate to the characters. The story was fabulous and draws you in from the start. The only thing I would have liked to see in this book is a great epilogue, I'd love to know a little about the future. I found there was a huge work up to get to the end ,then it just ended abruptly.
I loved how Rose grew a back bone and started enjoying life and I loved how swoon worthy both Declan and Dante were!!! All in all I thi

What most sticks out in this story is the maturity of the characters and the writing. It's not your wham bam thank you ma'am story. It takes time to develop and set up the characters for something that could well become a lasting healthy relationship. It stood out from a lot of what I've read and it didn't even have to be super erotic to do so :-p

I was not expecting to love this book as much as I did. I mean I LOVED IT! It was heartbreaking and heart warming at the same time. I loved Declan and how he supported Rose 100%. I also loved the friendship in this book. Dante was so sweet and made me want to have a best friend just like him. And then we have Rose's mom. I hated that women. I loved seeing Rose grow.

I was expecting to like this book a lot more than I actually did, and my problem was that I didn’t connect with most of the characters. This review will contain mild SPOILERS , sorry for that.

I really empathised with Rose’s situation, and while she was at home and had to deal with all the manipulation her mom did, I felt really bad for her. One thing I loved was her friendship with Dante, in fact, Dante was my favorite character of all of them. I liked that they were best friends

Something in the Air was a sweet New Adult novel about following your dreams and starting a new adventure. I had quite a few issues with it, but I still liked what I read.

Let's start with the good parts! Their was a fantastic platonic relationship that I was so happy to see. I don't see strong ones as much as I should, so that was one of my favorite parts of this book. Their was also a family focus. Rose had a very roc
