“Houston, we have a major attraction.”

After years of dealing with a heart condition and an overprotective mother, Airin Delaney is finally having her first taste of freedom in Waikiki—and it’s intoxicating. But it’s nothing compared to the out-of-this-world attraction between her and astronaut Hunter Bryce. Airin is determined to shoot for the stars and experience her fi

3.5 ★'s

A very different feel to Tell Me which was one of my 2017 faves, Show Me follows Astronaut Hunter (Caleb's brother for those who have read book 1) and a very sheltered (virgin) but very intelligent heroine.

They both want to travel to Mars (yes really), and connect really well personality wise, and have a strong chemistry.

I really enjoyed it, it was a fast easy read.

A complete standalone, you can enjoy this without reading Tell Me, but in my opinion, nowhere near as gripping.

The first book in this series really blew me away. It was one of my favorite reads last year so I was really excited to be granted access to an early copy of the book from NetGalley. Unfortunately, Show Me didn't quite hit the mark the way the first book did.

Airin and Hunter are perfectly fine characters with their own hopes and dreams. Airin is a well drawn character whose contentious relationship with her mother was the highlight of the book for me. I love the mother-daughter dynamics. There
3.5 stars.
First observation after reading this book, it was so different from "Tell Me". While that book had a more realistic storyline with a lot of depth and intensity this one was definitely much lighter and more of a fantasy.
Along those lines I really did enjoy this story and I liked all the "realistic" information revealed about NASA and space flight. It was obvious that the author had done her research.
Maybe I also believe that a manned space flight to Mars is possible but realistically I

Show Me by Abigail Strom is an emotional and entertaining read.
The story is well written, the plot is entertaining and I my attention was held all throughout the book.

I enjoyed watching the relationship between Airin and Hunter develop. I found them likable characters that shared an instant attraction and the more time they spent together the more their connection grew.
I also enjoyed learning about out of space and what NASA puts their astronauts through and how life is for them.

This book was provided by the Publisher through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Netgalley and Montlake Romance!

Show Me is a story about Airin and Hunter. Airin has always had the dream of becoming an astronaut, but years of dealing with a heart condition crushed that dream. It was such an unrealistic dream until she met Hunter. Hunter is an astronaut who wants to go to Mars and explore the universe. They meet one night and since then, they can’t keep each ot
Unlike its predecessor, ‘Show Me’ is written in a very different vein—much more than just an astronaut looking to fulfil his lifelong dream beyond Earth’s atmosphere and a woman so sheltered that the whole world seems new. If ‘Tell Me’ is an opposites-attract story, ‘Show Me’ continues this trend in a different way. Unlike Caleb and Jane who are inherently different in their personalities and what they wanted out of life, Hunter and Airin are opposites in in their experiences though there’s the ...more

Synopsis: Airin is trying to break free of her mother after years of suffering from a heart condition. Her mother has kept her protected and cosseted, so Airin sneaks out of her hotel one night and heads to a bar, just to see what "normal" people experience. Once there, she runs in to Hunter. They talk a little, and she joins the bachelor party that he is hosting for his younger brother. She finds out that Hunter is part of the project that her mother is working on, and believes that sh

3.5 stars for Show me by Abigail Strom.
Whereas Tell me, blew my socks off when I read it, Show me was a really great and addictive read, but it wasn’t a book that really WOWED me, you know?
It’s a matter of feelings in my case I guess as to why I give it a 3.5 star rating whereas Tell me got like 5+++ stars. To me, it felt like the romance was a bit superficial and not developed to it’s potential (view spoiler)

A sweet and slightly unique romance between two opposites with a shared love of space

Show Me is a sweet and slightly unique romance between two very likeable characters who share a passion but their pasts have been very different. This new adult style read is mostly a sweet and light-hearted read with a little bit of steam but there is an angst that underlies the story to keep things intriguing between Airin and Hunter.

Show Me is the second book in the Me Series, which at the time I read this I want aware it was part of a series. But it seems that you don’t necessarily habe to have read the first book. I had no issues, it was different characters. On to the story now. Airin has had health issues since she was a little girl, and has lived a severely sheltered life because of them. She’s a little socially awkward of course when she ventures out to a bar of all places for her first outing. It doesn’t take long be ...more

4 stars — While this story did NOT go in the direction I assumed it was going from the blurb (honestly, I thought she was going to get pregnant and there would be a secret baby that he wouldn’t find out about until after he finished his 8 month mission…WRONG), I still very much enjoyed this one!

Abigail Strom is a go-to author of mine for comfort reads. You know, literary mac and cheese, or biscuits and gravy. Her books are warm and funny and sweet, with likeable characters and nothing too over-the-top angsty or plot-twisty. Just good, solid, character-driven romances. Show Me, like it’s predecessor, Tell Me, was another winner. While they’re still part of a series, Show Me and Tell Me are completely different. They

**I received an ARC of this book courtesy of Net Galley and the publisher. All opinions expressed in my review are my own and given freely. **

First, I want to address that when I posted my review of Tell Me I listed it as a standalone. With this story I realize I was wrong and the author has it listed as part 2 of a series with Tell Me listed as the first book. That being said, you absolutely do not have to read one book to read the other. They are more a series in the way they have strong femal

I adored this latest Abigail Strom novel.  I’ve read several other novels by her and when I saw this title on NetGalley I knew I had to try it.  I was not disappointed.

A major part of this novel is the journey to Mars.  That might seem a bit odd for a romance novel.  However, it’s clear Abigail Strom did a lot of research into the life of astronauts and the preparations for Mars exploration.  I’m no scientist and can’t dispute the technology she presents.  I liked it though.  I found the technic

I received an ARC of this book. I would give it somewhere around a 3.5-3.7.

This was my first Abigail Strom book so I wasn't sure what was in store for me. Sometimes going in to a book with no expectations can be pleasantly surprising. It was apparent to me that Ms. Strom did her homework. I thought the research about space, astronaut training and life, and Mars was fascinating. And it was evident that she really researched the science of the space program itself- from zero gravity, to funding a

Less than two weeks into the new year, and I already have a contender for my Best Books of 2018 list! Show Me is a charming, heartwarming, and truly unique story the likes of which I haven’t read in a really, really long time. With an uncommon plot and delightful characters, I could hardly put this book down.

Dreams and goals, we all have them. What if something got in the way of those? An illness, an accident….falling in love? What would you do then? Show Me by Abigail Strom is a story of all of the above.

Airin (LOVE that name and spelling!!) has a medial past that is is harrowing. I have so much respect for her, learning her battles and how she has overcome them and now watching her be strong emotionally to experience things that we all take for granted each and every day.

I have read quite a few books from author Abigail Strom and liked them very much. Her latest offering, Show Me, is an interesting narrative with a plot that is most definitely replete with originality. If you enjoy the idea of space travel combined with some sizzling romance, then this book is for you.

After twenty-four years of surgeries and therapies, Airin Delaney's heart is absolutely perfect. She has always wanted to be an astronaut and travel into space. Her overprotective mother,

I loved this love story! The attraction the author generates between the two main characters is so strong that you can feel it coming off the page as you read. That they were both such unique individuals in rather bizarre circumstances made the story that much more intriguing.

Things definitely didn't go how I would have expected at several different junctures....

Science and space exploration buffs will love this story of a romance between two people as well as their passion for space exploration.

Airin has led the most sheltered life due to a lifelong illness and is trying to break free from the tight reigns of her overprotective mother. Hunter is a man on a mission and Airin is proving to be a major distraction that he can't help. The core of this story is Airin and Hunter's gravitation to one another despite what's best and the plans years in

Show Me is a brilliant read. Abigail Strom made this such and amazing read. I love the Astronaut aspect because I don't think many have touched on it that isn't sci-fi. Show Me pulled me in and didn't let go. Airin stole my heart. I love how she finally is getting that chance to take her life in her hands. Hunter is amazing. I love that he's the Astronaut going after his dreams. Airin and Hunter have amazing chemistry and I love how he pushes her to realize her dreams can come true. I even love ...more

I read this book via NetGalley.

This is the first science-y romance novel I've read, and I was impressed with how it was written. The characters always gave off an intellectual vibe, and the scientific plot line never failed to impress me. Even more impressive was the plot twists that kept me on my toes. I never would have guessed what the characters' personal lives were like, and I like how more details were revealed as the story went on. I love how the relationship between the two main characte

This is the first book I’ve read from Abigail Strom and I have to say, I really enjoyed it.
The storyline was different to any I’ve read recently, and it was full of information that I actually found very interesting! Airin was sweet and extremely innocent, yet she had a certain strength about her that I loved. She may have led quite a sheltered life, but she knew exactly what she wanted for her future and was determined to get it. While I couldn’t necessarily relate to her, I found her

Unique story about an astronaut and a woman who wants to be. Airin is a strong woman, facing heart problems since childhood. Her mother is a brilliant space scientist, who is overprotective.

Hunter meets her at a bar, and their attraction is immediate. But he's going into an 8 month biosphere program. Or so he thinks.

As their lives change course and they fall in love, there are many things they learn about themselves and each other.

Really like all the characters and the great way space travel

Show Me is the second book in the Me series. Show Me is about two very different people with similar interests. Airin has spent most of her life in a bubble to protect her and her health from risk. Hunter is a man that is getting ready to explore the universe. Thinking this might be their only night together, things looked to be heading one way. In this book you see them both grow and develop as the story progresses.

I was given a free copy of this book from NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.
My favorite parts were few and far between. I have read several books by this author and I've enjoyed all of them. They are not too steamy or too clean - they have the right mix. You can feel the chemistry between the characters and the conflicts they endure. I thought that this book was on a subject that was a little "out there" and seemed a tad unrealistic.

I requested Show Me by Abigail Strom particularly because I had just read Rikki and thought it was pretty good and wanted to read another book from the author. Unfortunately, I didn't like this book as I did with the other.
