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.
Off the Air (Running on Air, #1) Reviews
I absolutely loved this. Delicious tension and a good dose of angst kept me engrossed.
Leanne and Cal are both so vulnerable, prickly with each other and hurt at the start, it made for a truly emotional read. They still have that spark though and it's exactly that belly curling tingle that kept me engrossed in their story.
It's not all glum and angst though, the banter is witty and I loved spending more time with the rest of the freerunning crew again.
And yes, I cannot lie, I'm a complete sucker for a little forbidden, secret romance so that was me happy.
Complete story but part of a series featuring recurring characters. Highly recommended.
**Thanks to the author for my arc.**

Leanne Simmons is a talented freerunner in London who found success when she was chosen to be on a reality show called Running on Air. Each season they tried to create bigger and better stunts. She felt alive and free when running, like she didn’t have a care in the world. She was about to leave to spend the next month filming season 4 where she was the only girl in a crew of mostly men. This included her ex Callum Davidson.
Cal and Leanne had been seeing each other in secret off and on for years until too much happened between them and things changed. They’ve broken up and gotten back together too many times to count. They shared an intense connection, but when they were together they burned bright, and always self destructed in the end. It became dysfunctional and exhausting. Their feelings had forever been tangled up in desire and pain.
Cal & Leanne are both hot-headed, and with constantly fighting and making up, there was usually drama and disaster. After too much bad publicity and scandal, management gives an ultimatum they must sign a contract stating they won’t get involved romantically while filming. Neither is willing to jeopardize their job and livelihood so they agree. They will have to keep things professional and put an end to their on/off friends-with-benefits relationship they often fall back into. They would focus on work. Then Cal offers up a bet. They’d been competitive from the moment they met and couldn’t resist the rivalry between them.
Cal was confident, jealous, possessive, forward, unpredictable, and overwhelming. The one thing Leanne forgot he was is irresistible. She forgot how tempting he was when they shared the same space. She could try to pretend she was immune to his charms, but knew he could seduce her with one look. She had unresolved feelings for him, so being near him was torture. Everything suddenly felt like it was crashing down around her, including her self control. She couldn’t let her defenses down, but his nearness corrupted her thoughts and had her fixating and obsessing over him. He was intoxicating, and one touch and she would be lost in him again. Even though she was conflicted, the more they were around one another, something started to shift between them. He was in her head and her heart, and she didn’t know how to get him out.
-When it came to Cal, I did all the things I shouldn't. I was drawn to him in a way I'd never been to anyone else.
-His fingers slid against mine, and the feel of his skin, however small, made my heart race.
-She had to feel what was between us, the tugging, drugging, falling sensation. It couldn't just be me.
-I was wild for her, and it wasn't just physical. I craved her smiles and her smart mouth, her snappy comebacks, and musical laughter.
-All I wanted was my scrappy little tomboy who gave me shit, then kissed me when no one else was watching.
Off the Air is book one in L.H. Cosway's brand new "Running on Air" series. The main events of this story take place 3 1/2 years after the free prequel novella Air Kiss. Each book in this series will focus on a different couple and can be read as a standalone. I loved this enemies to lovers romance that goes from past to present. It was sexy, emotional, and completely addictive! It's full of fabulous banter, angst, and crazy sexual tension. I fell extremely hard for Cal in this book. We get inside his head, and see a gentle softer side that will make you swoon!
First and foremost, I'd like to say that I really enjoyed the parkour aspect of the story. I felt like the author wrote it well and it was interesting how they all played off each other.
That being said, it's a long, complicated journey between Callum and Leanne. Hopefully you read Air Kiss, the free prequel novella that tells how the two met and some developments between them. That's all enhanced upon in this book.
The prologue and start of the story has even more complications. It was really intriguing for me to figure out what in the heck happened to these two.
From that point on, we get some back story with them moving on in the present. They both have some deep hurts that have festered. Leanne just really wants to move on with her life...and move away from Callum. Luckily, Callum's not that easy to move on from.
I did love reading about Leanne waking up and recognizing what her feelings are and what was really bothering her. AND...I really loved how Callum handled the way things proceeded.
I enjoyed getting to know the rest of the group. Trevor already has a novella and book out in the Hearts series, One Epic Night and Hearts on Air but there's three more stories coming out in this series for the rest of them so far.

I love Cosway's books! I got so excited when I found out Cal and Leanne got their own book, I remember when they were introduced in Hearts on Air and there was such tension between them. Off the Air was the perfect dose of romance and angst that I needed at this time.
In a time when I have given up on many indie romance authors, Cosway and her beautiful characters and writing mean I will read anything and everything she continues to put out. And I am so beyong excited to read the rest of this series.
