Series: Up in the Air, Book 1

Cover Design: Ethereal Ealain


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.

Quick read, good book.

This is the first book I’ve read by George Loveland and I liked it a lot. At 77 pages, it’s a very quick read, but the author does a good job of telling us what we need to know about the characters.Air steward, James Foster, swapped work schedules to help out his friend, Max, whose job is in danger because of his drinking. It turns out to be one of the best things he’s done when late arriving passenger, Darren Busby, literally bowls him over.

This isn’t an insta-love story; James and Darren don’t fall into bed with each other right away, which is a bit surprising for such a short novella. The two of them take a little time to get to know each other and then they have to deal with James’ ex-boyfriend who wants James back.

The story has a HFN (happy for now) and James and Darren will get another story in Up in the Air 3: London. Up in the Air 2: Los Angeles will be about James’ friend, Max. I’m looking forward to reading the remaining books in this series.

About Author

George was about eighteen when he told his friend that he was going to be a writer. It took him another eighteen years before he finally did anything about it and wrote his first short story. A typical Englishman, he drinks buckets of tea with milk—but no sugar, because he is sweet enough. His Nan told him so.

George lives just outside of London, but close enough to enjoy Soho and the West End, where you will find him in a bar with a pint, in a club dancing into the early hours of the morning, or enjoying a musical in the theater; but more than likely he will be in a coffee shop reading a book or writing a new story. Currently single, but taking applications for future husband position, George enjoys crafting romantic stories in which he hopes that one day, life will imitate art.
