This was a fantastic read, from the moment I start it I was hooked.There was something in this story that I just couldn't put it down until I finish it!It was sweet, heartwarming and the romance was so good!


I fall in love with both characters, James and Michaela make me swoon, melt and feel so warm.My heart was aching for them and I just wanted to see them together. Michaela was such a lovely heroine I could easily relate with her.James is swoon worthy and definitely a man that will be

I belonged to him body and soul. And he had no idea.

This is one of the sweetest LH Cosway books I've read. Michaela and James story is a bit of friends to lovers and a little work place/forbidden romance. Michaela has worked for James for while, and she's crushed on him the entire time. She knows it can never go anywhere, he's engaged, but she can't help how she feels. Then James and his fiance break up... Now maybe, just maybe it's Michaela and James time.

It kills me to rate a Cosway book this low, but it was SO BORING! Gah. I normally really love her books but this one just didn't work for me.

I do want to read the other books in this series, no one book is the same! And as always, don't let my review sway you, read this book yourself and make up your own mind.

”I belonged to him body and soul. And he had no idea.”

I’ve been dying to get to James and Michaela’s story since the start of this series. Michaela has been hopelessly in love with her boss, who's also engaged. She’s struggled with these feelings because she knows how wrong it is to covet another woman’s man. The fact that she goes through inner turmoil and works hard to keep her crush hidden, shows what a sweet soul she is. James has bee

As always L.H. Cosway never disappoints. I love a brooding hero as much as the next reader, but I also love a hero who is a perfect balance of sexy nice guy. James is exactly that. His story is emotional, realistic and brilliantly handled by Cosway. She flips the switch on domestic abuse, which was extremely refreshing, and she deals with subjects like loss and grief with a sensitive understanding. Despite some of the heavy subject matter, Something in the Air held onto a lightness of heart that ...more

I feel like I always say this but it needs to be repeated: there is just something about L.H. Cosway's writing that is so addictive and no matter what the book is about, I always seem to enjoy it!

This book has tropes that I typically don't like and I was truly worried I wasn't going to be able to believe in James and Michaela's romance but luckily that didn't end up happening here. Cosway really took her time fleshing out and showing the progression of their relationship, from friends to more an

5- "There's Magic in the Air- STARS!"

I devoured this book last night.
I lost track of time and before I knew it, two hours had past and I was 60% done.
This story was so smoothly written and it flowed so well.

I didn't want to finish reading this book last night.
I wanted to make it last and savor the story, but I HAD to know what would happen next.

Ahhh, so worth it!

LOVED the characters!
LOVED their story!
Michaela & Jame's story was a wonderful read and amazing addition to the series.

Kudos Ms. Coswa

L.H. Cosway is a genius at writing emotionally packed books with characters you can’t help but want to be best friends with. Each time a new book is released frothier I get tingly with excitement knowing it’s going to be fun. This book is another great, fun, romantic, heartbreaking, hopeful tale. James and Michaela are fantastic, you’ll love them. It’s was so good I stayed up all night reading, sleep ? Ha ! No way I need to finish this book !

I don't think I can read a novel by this woman slowly. I want to savor them, but they're always so good and I can't stop myself from binge reading them in a day. 😍

I feel like I repeat myself in every review, but I can't help that either. Cosway is a character MASTER. She always creates unique and extraordinary characters, all while making them very relatable. I honestly can't think of a single author that does it better, or so consistently. She will always be a unicorn author for me an

There is nothing - truly nothing I love more in romance than desperate love.

I don't mean that either character is desperate (I mean, nobody likes that). But rather that their feelings for each other are so strong, so unavoidable, so powerful they almost feel palpable and when they finally get together it's with an air of desperation, like they can't breathe without each other. GUH. It's so romantic. So sexy. So irresistible.

And it was this exact sort of desperate love that James and Michaela use

For those of you who are familiar with the Running on Air series, Something in the air book #2 is pure reading bliss!

Michaela and James Love!

Falling in love with her boss wasn’t something that Michaela planned ,but when James is finally free to notice her the story takes off!

So much Love for these characters and their story!
Well done L.H.Cosway!

This is my second book by this author and I am so happy that I finally got around to checking out her books. Yayyy for me!!!!

Yet again another interesting and esssentially British storyline with two "sweet" and unselfish main characters. I very much enjoyed the slow burn aspect to their romance. Even though there is some tragedy, pain and heartache involved here I wouldn't classify this as an overly angsty read.

I loved this book so much! A wonderful love story with unique characters. Our hero is part of a reality show featuring parkour. Although he is focused on physical fitness so he can do his stunts, he also has made time for a relationship. He is engaged. One day our heroine walks in to his life. She is quiet and a bit shy. She is also brilliantly organized. This is helpful since she is one of the personal assistants on the show.
For our heroine it was love at first sight. She is aware that nothin

I am a huge Cosway fan. I adored the “Hearts” series and it was the first to make me fell in love with her. Even now I remember my huge crush on Oliver and Jay. 😀 I like her style and how she develops a very interesting plot, with action and really cool things. Not to mention she loves a good romance, as we all.

“Running on Air” is a spin-off for this series and believe me, it’s as good as the first one. “Something in the Air” is the second book, based on the obvious connection that Michaela and

Something in the Air by LH Cosway

#Review #OutJan31st #ContemporaryRomance

‘My mum used to teach me to look for the people who sat in the background, that sometimes you’ll find a gem who isn’t brave enough to step into the light.’

Something in the Air is a testament to the profound way that author LH Cosway connects her characters to her readers. There is this shared, almost magical, empathic thread running through her words, fusing the thoughts and feelings, trials and tribulations of her protagon

With soul-mates as characters that you can't help but fall for, this story was reminiscent of my favorite Cosway books of the past.
❝I belonged to him, body and soul. And he had no idea.❞

We first met this couple in 'Off The Air', and the gentle way in which James took care of Michaela in the car scene had me pining for their story. I thank God that I wasn't disappointed.
❝I even flirted with the idea of kissing her, just to see what she'd taste like. It was a moment of madness.❞

I should warn you that you can get severely hydrated while reading Something in the Air. Once you start reading it, it won’t let you quit. Who cares about bathroom break, just follow Afric’s lead and make your own adult diaper. All that is important is this book and its wonderfully-flawed characters.

I can’t say I fell in love with Michaela and James immediately because that deed had already happened when they were both introduced to us for the first time but their actions and thoughts in this st

Rubbish writing, syrupy romance tropes, and absolute misuse and misrepresentation of anxiety (that can, according o this author, be cured by real love).

Micheala Olsson is head over heels for James Khan. There are just a few problems with this: He’s engaged to another woman. He’s her boss. And he’s almost 10 years older than her. Micheala is content to just be his friend, he has enough stress in his life being one of the stars of a popular reality TV show about parkour. When he asks her to move into a house he in renovating for his fiancee to help with the project, she’s eager to help, but wary of getting closer to her unattainable crush. Howeve ...more

I was lucky enough to get to read an ARC. I love this book! I love how LH Cosway writes flawed, loveable, and relatable characters. This is a stand alone book. Even though you don't need to, I suggest to read the other books because you get other points of view of all the characters that help give them a three dimensional feel. This book is about Michaela and James. I have been curious about Michaela since we met her in Leanne's book. Michaela is the group's personal assistant along with Neil. S ...more

I really enjoy Ms Cosway's writing. I've read her co-authored (with Penny Reid) rugby series books. I loved them all. I'm trying to make my way through her solo authored books.
I couldn't resist this latest release.
Michaela is very shy and quiet. She works as a PA on the reality TV show "Running on Air". I don't
like show biz stories, but this author and the blurb got to me.
I loved the growing attraction between James (the star of the show) and Michaela. They start off as friends. Ja
I'm loving the Running on Air series, and thought that no one would displace Cal and Leanne as my favorite couple, but James and Michaela had such a great story that they are equally tied for first place in my heart. I loved seeing reappearances by everyone involved with the show, and getting glimpses at who I think will be pared up in future books. Back to this book - This was a delicious slow burn, mildly angsty story. My heart ached for James and all that he went through in this book. I was t ...more

I was fortunate to be able to read an early copy of this story to beta read, and I must say ... I absolutely loved it!

From the moment we first met Michaela in Off the Air, I could relate to her. (A little shy, a little nerdy ... me about 30 years ago. LOL) And her feelings for James were palpable. There was definitely a strong connection between these two characters, and I could hardly wait to read their story.

Here, that connection is expanded upon (their first meeting) and it continues to grow,
