Guest Review: Up in the Air 1: Johannesburg by George Loveland

Looking for love is the last thing air steward, James Foster, is thinking about when he swaps flights to save his hung-over best friend’s job. He doesn’t know that fate has other ideas and he would fall for the tall, bearded passenger, Darren Busby, sat in 14D. Up in the air, James finds that the connection he has with Darren is too strong to ignore.

After missing the opportunity to ask for Darren’s number, James' jaw hits the floor when Darren walks into the same hotel he is staying at. Butterflies and nerves take over, but soon give way to excitement as they get to know each other on the ground.

When James' ex, Richard, shows up and begs for forgiveness, James has to decide if going back to the man who broke his heart would be worth it, or if he should finally move on and take a chance on Darren.

Reviewer - Shee Reader

This was a very sweet, relatively quick read (more of a novella length) but was no less enjoyable for that!

The peek through the curtain (as it were) to the on board antics of the cabin crew was really fun, and the meeting up in Johannesburg as James waits for his return flight and Darren gets down to the job he’s there for is really cute. I liked that the two men were from near each other at home so my little romantic heart could embrace the HEA possibilities!

James’ best friend was a side character, but I’m sure we’ll get to him in Up In the Air 2! I loved James’ nan and her need to feed the boys up was reminiscent of my dear old nan.

James’ ex was a bit of a horror and I loved how Darren rose to the challenge when the hideous man made a play to get James back.

All in all, I’d have loved this to be a full length book, but it has left me wanting more in the series!


I was given a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
