Man, I am on a ROLL. This is the third excellent book in a row I've read. This never happens to me!

Off the Air was hot. And angsty. And sexy. And intense. In typical LH Cosway style, she seasons the drama with her delightful brand of humor (or should I say "humour" lol!) What I love about her books is that I know going in that, no matter what, the characters and story will be unique. She has one of the most distinctive and unique voices in contemporary romance, and I AM HERE FOR IT!

Tonight, we ran on air.
And tomorrow, we’d do it again.
The location might change, but one thing would stay the same.
I’d never stop holding his hand.

In ”OFF THE AIR” we dive right into Callum and Leanne's tumultuous and highly toxic relationship. The novella ”AIR KISS” tells the story of how their romance began and it was a clear indication that their journey was going to be one serious angst-fest.

4 stars!

I love Cosway's books! I got so excited when I found out Cal and Leanne got their own book, I remember when they were introduced in Hearts on Air and there was such tension between them. Off the Air was the perfect dose of romance and angst that I needed at this time.

In a time when I have given up on many indie romance authors, Cosway and her beautiful characters and writing mean I will read anything and everything she continues to put out. And I am so beyong excited to read the rest

Leanne Simmons is a talented freerunner in London who found success when she was chosen to be on a reality show called Running on Air. Each season they tried to create bigger and better stunts. She felt alive and free when running, like she didn’t have a care in the world. She was about to leave to spend the next month filming season 4 where she was the only girl in a crew of mostly men. This included her ex Callum Davidson.

L.H. Cosway does characterisation better than most and that's why I love her books. Leanne and Callum's story is fraught with the best kind of angst, emotional— torturous even— but also completely realistic. Their storyline is handled sensitively and authentically and it brought more than a few tears to my eyes. Yet, these characters also had great banter that made me laugh, and explosive chemistry that almost, and thankfully didn't, melt my kindle! It's a book of balance, providing everything I ...more

First and foremost, I'd like to say that I really enjoyed the parkour aspect of the story. I felt like the author wrote it well and it was interesting how they all played off each other.

That being said, it's a long, complicated journey between Callum and Leanne. Hopefully you read Air Kiss, the free prequel novella that tells how the two met and some developments between them. That's all enhanced upon in this book.

The prologue and start of the story has even more complications. It was re

Overall, I am not a fan of this book. The reason why I am giving this book 3 stars is due to the super hot cover which is sizzle my computer screen while I am typing the review and Calleb. The rest, I want to throw the book to a wall.

I especially dislike Leanne. She is the most bitchy, needy heroine I ever encounter. She and Calleb has this sizzling romance. Then some tragic circumstance, their relationship tears them apart. Then now they have to film a real life TV and they not allowed to have
Happy book birthday!!

L.H. Cosway’s first volume in her new “Running on Air” series is a refreshing, addictive and unique story that blew me away.

Leanne Simmons has no choice but to fulfill her contract, film her free running reality TV show with the rest of the crew which includes her ex while maintaining a strictly platonic relationship with him. It shouldn’t be difficult to accomplish since she can Callum have gone from enemies to lovers and back to enemies, but their intense attraction doesn
I absolutely loved this. Delicious tension and a good dose of angst kept me engrossed.

Leanne and Cal are both so vulnerable, prickly with each other and hurt at the start, it made for a truly emotional read. They still have that spark though and it's exactly that belly curling tingle that kept me engrossed in their story.

It's not all glum and angst though, the banter is witty and I loved spending more time with the rest of the freerunning crew again.

And yes, I cannot lie, I'm a complete sucker

Oh man! All that sexual tension and heavy push and pull between Callum and Leanne in Air Kiss? That mixing bowl of angsty drama exploded in a shower of grief, longing, tenderness, and yes, unbelievably prickly chemistry! Leanne and Callum were so into each other in a way that I felt was unhealthy and almost compulsive really, yet oddly enough when everything comes out in the wash? Their behavior made sense in a twisted sort of way. Maturity can be a real growing pain, as Leanne and Callum both d ...more

I voluntarily read and reviewed an arc copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Thanks to the author for providing a copy of this book

What do we know about parkour or freerunners? I know only that I envy their capabilities to fly like birds and run like panthers. LOL
Leanne and Cal forming a part of parkour friends. They had a lot of luck and got a TV show for some seasons.
I'm reluctant to read second chance love story but this one picked my interest, it's third/forth chance story.

Me, whenever a new LH Cosway book lands on my Kindle:


I always try to savor LH Cosway's words, because I love them so much, but I just can't stop myself from devouring her books. Like Off the Air, which I finished in ONE DAY!

I've been waiting for Callum and Leanne's novel since they were first introduced, and I was not disappointed. Theirs is definitely one of the more drama-heavy romances Cosway has written (in my opinion), but she was able to portray it in such a way that it never felt like too

I am a really big fan of L.H Cosway’s work. I like the way she drafts her stories, the great characters she brings to life and the fact that every story has an individual element. The stories are not alike and I find great pleasure of reading each and one of them.

“The Hearts” series is one of my all-time favorites and every new book is a delight. This is why I was so excited so enter L.H’s ARC group, because it means I can read it before everyone else and enjoy it with extra time. A spin-off of

First off: this cover is gorgeous.

I feel like I always start off my reviews for this author by saying this but here I go anyway: I love her writing. There's something about it that is just so easy and addictive. Even if a book isn't my favorite, I still end up enjoying it and not regretting reading it at all.

Leanne and Callum are two characters that we first meet in a different series of her and I was intrigued by them from the start. And while I found their actual love story to be a
***4 Stars***

While it has been quite a few moons since reading Hearts on Air, I remember wanting to spend more time with the characters and see where their lives would lead. So, when the spinoff was announced, I was all in ~ especially because Callum and Leanne were going to be leading things off and I knew it was going to one hell of a ride and I was not disappointed! It was all kinds of emotional ~ it was like a ping pong game on crack, one moment I felt this way and then the next I was on

3 1/2 stars. I am a fan of L.H. Cosway's work. Her books usually evoke such strong feelings in me. Unfortunately, I didn't get great ones from this book. I had a hard time with the contract Leanne and Cal had to sign. It offended me on so many levels. When the incident that precipitated this happened, they weren't even together: hadn't even been together for a year. Having them sign something so ridiculous didn't make sense. I also didn't really jive with Cal and Leanne's dynamic. She was so mea ...more

Let me start of by saying that very few authors can write an alpha lead the way L.H. Cosway can. She has the best sexy talking men who can literally make their woman melt without taking off one stitch of her clothing. I'm just saying...they are hot!

If you haven't read the prequel, Air Kiss, I highly recommend you read that first. It's a quick little novella and it gives you vital insight into the history of Leanne and Callum's relationship. That said, Leanne and Cal

I fell in love with Callum's tattoos and then fallen even harder with him and his story. Loved how he turned himself around to win Leanne back. I thought I'd be turned off by their possibly "Toxic Relationship"! So glad I was wrong! His best scene was the recorded of his personal thought that finally won Leanne's heart and soul! L.H. Cosway sure could create an amazing hero!

I could feel Leanne's excruciating pain of her loss, so I got her hot and cold behavior toward Callum. Here's when I fell

Oh, y'all. This series is going to be fun!

And I don't mean that in any sort of lighthearted way, but rather in an addictive, drama-filled, emotional kind of way. I mean, this story had its share of lighter moments - mostly in the interactions of the group as a whole - the overall tone was pretty heavy. Callum and Leanne were riddled with issues - big issues, serious issues, heartbreaking issues - and I struggled with that sometimes.

Leanne, in particular, took me along time to warm up to. She wa

The world was so unique as were the characters. The two main characters were oil and water, mixed with fire and ice. Their intensity was off the charts.

Smouldering undercurrents of sexual tension paired with a trauma that link the two main characters together regardless of their predicament. This was a really beautiful read where I could not do other than love the asshole-ness of the hero and the resistance of the heroine.

A great start to this spin off series from Hearts of Air. The storyline follows a group of adrenaline chasers, who have signed up to a reality TV show about parkour; Running on Air.

Leanne Simmons is a tomboy of sorts. She’s always favoured the active lifestyle, and found free running encompased the adrenaline chase she thrived on. Having been invited to run with an established foursome, her and her best mate Paul, earned themselves a contract on the TV show too.

"We were fire and fire"

Callum and Leanne were such an intense couple. From the moment they met, there was an intense attraction but they were both such stubborn and strong headed people. They fought as hard as they loved. This book transitions a bit from the past to the present and over the years these two engage in an on-again, off-again relationship that had me twisted into an emoti

I really loved Off the Air!
Initially I didn’t think I’d enjoy these two lead characters (based on previous book where they appeared), but I’m glad I was mistaken.
Leanne and Cal are both stubborn and ambitious, but with time they grow on you.
I could feel the heartache and the loss. Made me cry a little bit too.

Also the fact the story is partly based in South Africa (which I very much am in love it) brought back all the amazing memories for me! Including the stargazing!

Reading Off the Air brought me into an amazing state of mind. Its whirlwind of emotions kept me awake and breathless.
It's hard to write a unique second chance love story when there are so many already but L.H. Cosway did it flawlessly as she always does. Okay, yeah, I am fangirling here. Shut up!
All characters were captured in a way that made you feel you were one of them, that you were with them when bad stuff happened in their past, that you were the one they confided in...

I love Cal, he was such a perfect and dreamy hero. I was swooning over how much he loved Leanne.

So basically, the story is about a group that Do parkour together and end up on a reality show about it. Cal and Leanne start off a little rough when they first meet and Cal comes off like a bit of a douche at first. But then when you read the story from his POV you know how much he’s really into LeeAnn. He’s obsessed with her and from t

‘I felt his breath on my neck when he responded quietly, “You know I’d do anything for you, right’.

The adoration and respect I have for author LH Cosway, is completely justified and highlighted, within that one little, yet profound sentence.  She manages to convey so much, in so few words and that is a legitimate gift when it comes to storytelling. She is a keen and insightful observer of humanity, in how w
