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 standalone.
I was provided a review copy; this did not influence my opinion of the book.
❝Stars reassured me. They made me feel like I wasn’t the only tragic thing in the world. They showed me that you could still shine bright even after you’d died inside. That’ all wasn’t lost just because you’d lost something.❞
There’s a reason L.H. Cosway is a “will always read” author for me. I love her storytelling; it is immersive, fluid and imaginative. You will never get the same story from her. Her characters are beautifully flawed and filled with potential. She exposes their flaws and brings them to life; making them more, making them awesome, making them human. Her characters grow and change. Who they were at the beginning of the story is not whom they end up at the end.
We were given a brief introduction to these characters in HEARTS ON AIR; I couldn’t wait to read more about this group and their soon to be reality TV show. With OFF THE AIR, Cosway brings us a passionate, second chance romance about Callum and Leanne. They fight with the same kind of passion with which they love. Their chemistry is off the charts explosive and when they are together, sparks always fly.
❝He was an untamed, wild, unpredictable thing that I willingly let devour me, body and soul. Not only that, I wanted to be devoured❞
Leanne is a risk taker and thrill seeker. She’s also fiercely independent and strong-willed. She doesn’t back down in a fight and will not let anyone stand in her way. Filming a reality show with her ex isn’t easy, but would be made easier with some rules and boundaries. If she could only get Callum to comply.
❝She didn’t even know it yet but I was going to make her mine. I was going to tear down all the barriers between us. Tonight I might’ve knocked down a few bricks, but soon I’d demolish the entire wall.❞
Callum exudes bad boy charm. He’s a rebellious, risk taker and thrill seeker like Leanne. But he’s also extremely loyal to the ones he loves. When he loves he does so with wild abandon. He refuses to accept Leanne’s rules. He isn’t satisfied with friendship and he plans to show her she wants him just as much as he wants her.
❝You’re going to kiss me by the end of this trip, Leanne. And you’re going to do it because you want to.❞
The next book in this series is about James and Michaela, and I’m like a giddy school girl. I can’t wait!
OFF THE AIR is an angsty and passionate second-chance romance with a charismatic hero and courageous heroine who encounter tragedy and fight their way back to one another.
