Michaela Olsson has found her soulmate in James Khan. There are just a few teeny, tiny problems…
One, he’s her boss, two, he’s too old for her, and three, well, he happens to be engaged to somebody else.
She’ll take this crush and bury it deep. She’ll take it to her grave. James already belongs to another, so she’ll lock her secret up so tight it’ll be deprived of oxygen, suffocate and die.
Matters are only made worse when James asks her to move into his newly purchased house to supervise the renovations. Working together every day is bad enough, but living in a house he owns is far more intimate than she expected. Then, when James decides to call off his wedding without any explanation whatsoever, Michaela wonders if perhaps her feelings for him aren’t as one-sided as she thought.
While he was engaged James shared a flat with his fiancée, but now he’s moving into the house that Michaela has been living in by herself. She hadn’t intended for it to happen, but the place has started to feel like home, and with the object of her affections suddenly sharing her living space, things become infinitely more complicated. And heated.
Soon Michaela learns she might’ve had more to do with James calling off his engagement than she could’ve possibly imagined.
Despite what you might think this is not a love triangle! This is a slow burn romance with a lot of angst and sexual tension is all I’m going to say.
Michaela and James have to be one of my favorite book couples. They’re just so damn good! They both stand for equal values such as family and honesty. Regardless of their attraction whilst James was engaged, they never acted on it. Michaela insisted she would try and bring it to the grave if it meant not hurting someone.
The way James grieved his late mother was also an indicator of his kind heart. Also, the way he justified his ex-fiancé’s actions in order not to speak ill about her. But no one’s perfect and there are things we can’t control.
Something in the Air is book 2 in the Running on Air series but it can be totally read as a standalone. Although I did not read the first book, it mentions characters such as Trevor and Reya from Hearts on Air, which I loved! So, it was really nice to know they were even expecting a child.
As I said before, this is a very sweet story where two REALLY nice people fall for each other. I did think that James was too good to be true though! I mean a sexy man beast in his early thirties who’s only been with one woman before Michaela? come on. I don’t discard the possibility of this, but you gotta admit it’s highly unlikely.
All in all, I love most of L.H. Cosway’s books since they surround interesting subjects such as parkour, circus traveling and even a private investigator’s office! They’re super entertaining and most of all, I adore her heroines. They’re so kind without discarding their identity and personality. If you haven’t read any of her books, don’t hesitate to read them all!
