Summary

Spending a month filming a reality TV show with your ex is no picnic. 

Especially when you’ve signed a contract stating that the two of you will not, under any circumstances, have romantic relations while filming. 

Leanne Simmons and Callum Davidson never had an easy relationship. From enemies to lovers and back to enemies, they’ve been on again/off again for years. Things come to a head when Callum gets into an altercation with a rival for Leanne’s affections. Their management decide enough is enough and give them both an ultimatum: sign the contract or leave the show. 

Unwilling to give up their livelihoods, Callum and Leanne sign on the dotted line. However, like always, they can’t resist making a bet. Callum thinks it’s only a matter of time before they break the agreement, while Leanne is determined to see it through. 

Can she resist him for an entire month without losing her sanity? And what if this is the one bet that finally breaks them both? 

Off the Air is a contemporary romance and Book One in L.H. Cosway’s brand new Running on Air series. Each book focuses on a different couple and can be read as a stand-alone.

Narrators were AWESOME!

First my review of the story itself:

Oh buddy. You're in for an emotional ride with this one!

Hearts on Air was in my top 3 for favorite books in the entire Hearts series, so I was SO excited to read this one. The glimpse we got of Leanne and Callum in that book left me wanting so much more. I knew there was so much more to their story and I was so right.

Callum was amazing. In HoA he comes across as this self-serving, narcissistic jerk and he was, but in this book we got to see him fully grow into the compassionate, caring side we all hoped he had. This man has DEPTH and such deep emotional scars that you can absolutely understand why he acted the way he did. I loved seeing how much he cared about Leanne and how much he struggled with everything they went through. More often than not we don't get to see a man's perspective on their situation so I was really happy that Ms. Cosway included that part. I thought it was handled really well and, despite never having gone through that, I genuinely felt their grief and their pain.

Leanne was such a mixed bag for me. I'll be honest, I didn't like her in the middle. I liked her a bit in the beginning because I had always liked her previously, but by the middle towards the end I. COULD. NOT. STAND. HER. She treated Callum terribly and I was so mad at her because he was honestly trying. Her negativity was guiding her emotions, though, and I kept having to remind myself that this woman went through earth-shattering trauma. By the end, I completely understood why she acted that way. She grew so much more than even Callum did because she finally accepted and acknowledged her part in everything that transpired between the two of them. It made me like her so much more by the end of the book.

As usual, this book was well written and the entire story line was well thought out. You get a wide range of emotions from this one from anger to grief to happiness and back again. I am so excited that this is a series because I can see how each character's story is going to come into play and I can't wait to see how their stories completely unfold. I have a feeling we're in for an epic ride.

Now the narrators:

Wow! Talk about some amazing narration. I absolutely loved both of these narrators. They embodied Callum and Leanne perfectly. I loved their accents for everyone, too. I love when the narrators actually have the accents the characters are supposed to have because they have the natural dialect to make them seem more real. I sincerely hope these two will narrate the rest of the series!

Wonderful story wonderfully read

L.H. Cosway has an amazing way with words. Her storytelling is always evocative and her characters multidimensional. I get lost in her books and I'm always sad when they end.

I was nervous that the actors would be distracting as sometimes happens when a voice doesn't match my idea of what the characters or narrator should sound like, especially when the book is written in the first person. My apprehension was unfounded. The actors were wonderful. It felt like the characters were speaking to me, telling their stories, the emotions were clear and sounded genuine in the reading.

This audio book gets all the stars!

Awesome story with All The Feels!

I love Off The Air. The story starts us off with some heartbreak. It hits us with angst and emotion that is tempered with humor and fun banter. But there is at all times the strong connection between Leanne and Callum.
Leanne is hiding from her pain and in a way acting out and pushing Cal away.

“And nobody has life figured out. We’re all just taking stabs in the dark, learning as we go along.”

I listened to this story on audiobook and the awesome narration by Stacey Holmes and Will M Watt made this such a great listening experience! Audiobook is definitely the way to go with this one!

Fantastic audiobook!

As with the Air Kiss audio-book, I think the author selected the perfect narrators for this book. Stacey Holmes and Will M. Watt really helped submerge me in the story as L.H. Cosway intended when she wrote it. I had previously read the ebook version of Off the Air, and could not begin to imagine what the characters sounded like. Instead of thinking like an American in London, I was able to get a better feel for the life of a native in London.

The story itself is wonderful, a second-chance sports romance - but with Parkour athletes instead of athletes from typical, organized sport teams. The author nicely developed the characters, building on what we already learned in Air Kiss, and providing multi-dimensional characters with family relationships, and complex motivations. In addition to Leann, who I loved from the start, and Callum, who I grew to love as we got to know him better, there was an interesting, and complex cast of supporting characters. There was excitement and drama throughout the book, derived from both the sport and the relationships among the characters. The author's descriptions of the venue's visited was amazing, as I found myself doing some research to actually "see" the sights.

This is a standalone novel, with a happy ending for those of you wondering. However, there are links to the author's Hearts series where we first met Trevor, as well as the rest of the Running on Air series yet to come. There are so many questions I want to see answered in this series: what is in James' future? Will Leeann set up Paul with a certain someone? What is Neil hiding? What happens with Michaela's crush? How are Trevor and Reya doing? Will Isaac get a love interest?

I highly recommend you listen to this audio-book. I think you'll enjoy it, and then you will also want to know the answers to these questions.
