"Strangers meet at the airport and fall in love after the explosion.” Well there was an explosion alright.

The same part that died when I woke up that day in the hospital. And I can’t explain how my heart came to life again when I saw her at her office.” And then BAM!!

I'm rubbing my eyes at this point😮 "How can someone vanish into thin air?” Real wold brings them challenges emotional and psychological The pace is fast and happening, characters very well rounded, her writing style is very factual and straightforward. My only peeve- the big secret or puzzle I should say, remained unsolved. So how did both people land at the same place and shared what they did....🤔 I'd have loved to have a plausible explanation for it.

He’s got a few changes to make, both personally and professionally. He has a close relationship with his sister and she always lends him support when he needs it. He’s a good guy who doesn’t let his elite athletic ability or his celebrity status go to his head. First impression of Sam: Ummm.....YUMMY!!🥰😍❤️ Ellie, 31 (entertainment lawyer): Ellie is smart and dedicated to her job, but she has a horrible boss that makes life difficult. She’s a bit dissatisfied with things. ”Lately, I work in a world where there are a lot of fake people and failed marriages. It’s made me lose hope in finding love myself. I don’t know who I can trust, because I don’t know who’s real and who’s using me for my connections." . Ellie has a close relationship with her mom and her cousin, so family is very important to her. First impression of Ellie: I’m confused....she’s confused. I’m glad she’s nice because I would hate to be in this state of confusion with a bitch. 😂 Lol. The Story: Sam and Ellie meet on an island. But do they already know each other and can’t remember? What will happen when they have to leave the island? Can they leave the island? 🤔 My Thoughts: I must say, by Chapter 1 I was hooked. There were a couple places where I had to reread a sentence or two to see if I was confused or if Ellie was confused. Well, it was Ellie, but that just helped draw me in and made me connect with her. Why were we both so confused? What the heck was going on? By chapter 3 I had a theory about what was happening. By then I had been introduced to Sam and omg.....❤️🥰. It’s insta love for Sam and Ellie, and for me too. I don’t often get this wrapped up in insta love, but I was all in. Their feelings for each other were contagious. Plus, did they have a prior connection that made this not feel so much like insta love? 🤔🤔 Why are they so comfortable together? Clearly I had some questions. Lol. But, that’s part of the reason I was so drawn in. I loved this couple and I wanted to know their story. Their chemistry was off the charts and I was itching for answers. This couple was so much fun on the island. The wardrobe malfunction, the lemon incident, Petie the parrot, the sea turtles, the way they shared their favorite things with each other, scuba diving, pictures on the beach, songs, the Swarovski turtle gift and the care and love they showed each other when they were not feeling the best. They definitely had some heat and steam together 🔥 and I just knew these two were destined to live HEA. But then......oh boy. 😳 My theory in chapter 3 turned out to be correct, but I really wasn’t prepared for the turn. What now??? Omg I was rooting for them soooo bad. But could they find their HEA? Now I wasn’t sure. 😬🤞Uh oh. So......I’m not going to give anything away. All you need to know is that I was riveted from start to finish and I had a few heart palpitations along the way. In the end, I got the story I wanted and the journey was extremely satisfying. This isn’t like anything I have read before. Kudos to the author for thinking outside of the box. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute and it ticked all my boxes: H/h I love, no stupid cliche’s, a couple of not-so-nice people that get what they deserve in the end, fantastic chemistry, supportive family/friends, mystery/confusion/the unknown and so much more. I highly recommend. Quotes: "I’m talking to a bird like it’s a friend who just interrupted a hot date.” “I don’t care that we just met, Sam. My feelings for you don’t scare me.” “I don’t know what’s happening between us, either, Ellie, but I like it. Please tell me it doesn’t have to end.” “Never. Ever.” “Somehow, despite the short time we’ve known each other, you’ve stolen my heart." “I want to know what it feels like to make love to someone when it means everything to the both of us.” “Look forward, never back.” “I want my lips swollen because you can’t get enough of me.” “I want to be stuck with you forever.” “My biggest fear now is that I won’t be able to grow old and gray with you.” “Say you won’t let me go. Please don’t let us go.” ARC received for honest review.

    I am always delighted to read a story from Kristina Beck since I discovered her work while reading an ARC of her Souls Collide series. If you haven't read them, add them to your list, kick back and enjoy. She has a way of adding quirky twists of fate, near misses, and in this case, something like a sprinkle of magic to her romantic tales of love and finding that 'meant to be' soulmate. I'm going to be alittle bit vague with my review because this is a story which the author has taken special care I am always delighted to read a story from Kristina Beck since I discovered her work while reading an ARC of her Souls Collide series. If you haven't read them, add them to your list, kick back and enjoy. She has a way of adding quirky twists of fate, near misses, and in this case, something like a sprinkle of magic to her romantic tales of love and finding that 'meant to be' soulmate. I'm going to be alittle bit vague with my review because this is a story which the author has taken special care to craft so differently than the usual. To say too much would spoil the surprise and believe me, it's too cool to discover all that's there for me to do that to the next reader. The h in this story, Ellie Crimson finds herself in a beautiful, exotic resort, sipping away on tropical drinks with umbrellas, getting treated like a queen..what a vacation this is already and she's just arrived! Top it off with a gorgeous man, Sam, who happens to be in the villa right next door, how lucky is she? Very much so, it seems. Whatever you desire- delicious food, service with a smile at every turn along with a private pool and beach (let's not forget the hot, sexy neighboor). What more could the overworked Ellie possibly want? Sam and Ellie dive headfirst into what some might call love at first sight. Off the charts sizzle- check, a feeling of belonging- definitely..could this vacation romance be the real deal? What is this special place doing to Ellie and Sam as it weaves its spell around them? Things may not be exactly as they seem but I won't say much more except, pay attention to details and bookmark when you feel those special moments. I found lots of them to love! This book was twisty, angsty, fun in some spots, steamy and romantic as well. Makes you really wonder if fate is at work in every aspect of life, if every move you make leads to your future in some way or another. If what is meant to be will happen no matter what obstacles are placed in your path. I LOVED this story! So well written and very different to say the least. Mire than worth a few hours of pleasure! The h and H are both perfect and the supporting characters, well, some you will love to hate! Recommend this author and her books, this one might have been a favorite of mine so far! I was glad to be chosen to receive an advanced copy and this is my honest review of it.

    Thanks to author for providing this copy to me!! Sorry, this book didn't work out for me. Annoying main characters, good plot went wrong, too much ex drama, sometimes writing looked like dairy enters, cheating... Main characters sometimes looked like they have double personalities...

    Killer of a twist ... perfectly thought out Kristina Beck certainly knows how to deliver one mind boggling story. INTO THIN AIR was definitely not what I expected. The blurb had me intrigued, but the story ...WOW!!!! The story totally blew me away.

Ellie, a hardworking and dedicated entertainment lawyer, has decided that she needs a break from life, she needs time alone. She finds herself on an island resort, where she just wants to lap up the peace and quiet. Sam, a professional soccer player, has a few hard decisions to make dur to an injury that is keeping him off the playing field. An island resort is the perfect place for him to do this. Ellie and Sam end up as neighbours. Even though they are there to be alone, something is constantly drawing them to each other. Soon a friendship develops and so much more. It's like they have known each other all of their life, they are so comfortable together and their love just shines brightly. The interactions and banter between them had me laughing at times, especially when they were first getting to know each other. Their time together is idylic ... almost too idyllic. Just when everything appears to be perfect, Ms Beck throws in a killer of a twist ... that's all I'm going to say. This story was brilliant, perfectly thought out and really had me asking so many questions. Why was their chemistry so strong? Why did there seem to be nothing that they could not do on the island? Can Ellie and Sam take their new found happiness back to the real world, or is it destined to remain a holiday romance? Not everything is as it appears, there's something else going on ... but what is it? With some awesome support characters of family and friends, this story is thoroughly enjoyable to read. Of course there are the usual antagonists, but they are dealt with in due course. A brilliant book that kept me totally captivated. A highly recommended read.

Okay, real quick, her name is Stella but her 'friends' call her 'Ellie.' I will NOT, because she's a blight on MY name. Why must every heroine called Ellie be a bloody g*ddamned cow?!? So...moving on. I was looking forward to reading this. I'm not into paranormal type stuff - which as it happens, this really wasn't - but it sounded interesting. And the annoying Stella nitwithstanding, I was really into this for a good bit. But once reality took over in the book, my curiosity began to wane. There was a load of OP drama on both sides, although significantly more from hero Sam's. After the mysterious and engaging beginning of the story, the H and h aren't together for quite a while and they both share some responsibility there but the problem was so much more Stella than Sam. Sam was lovely and loyal and his love for Stella never faltered. Stella on the other hand was whiny, judgemental and fickle as f*ck. She also had a nasty habit of running and hiding, holing up in her apartment and not showering. Gross. Even if we've all done it, who the hell wallows in their filthy pj's and freely admits that they stink. Keep that shite to yourself. And she cried all the time. It's no secret that heroines with leaky tearducts stomp on my last nerve. But Sam was a famous athlete and had a bit of a past and even though he'd never given her any reason to mistrust him she was constantly punishing him for his fame, the public interest in him, and his ex-girlfriends. She accused him of cheating, basically said that he was a bad person if he loved his ex and there was no way he could love someone like Stella. IMO, it was a HUGE flaw in an otherwise decent guy that he did love her, but I digress. So, the book turned out to not really be about their mystical connection so much as it was about exes causing trouble and bitchy colleagues and paparazzi and her hating his life and all he stood for. It wasn't all that unique after all, but I was still interested enough to see it through. And then 89% happened. God, did I hate that bitch after that. She was nothing but a selfish, whiny hypocrite and she did not deserve that man. What she did was cold-blooded and uncalled for and she deserved spinsterhood and 50 cats to live out her dotage. Her 'revenge' scene on the OW didn't even soften my opinion of her. Because fuck her. She had a lot to learn about what loving someone really means, and you sure as hell don't tell someone they aren't worth it when stuff gets tough. Cow. This book was a huge disappointment. HEA, but who the fuck cares.

    This is an excellently written book. It draws you in with the feeling of being right there with the characters as the story unfolds. Sam and Ellie have chaos in their lives and when they meet it is an instantaneous spark that drives their hearts and with the blink of an eye he's gone. When they reconnect, reluctance is thrown into the mix. Will they be able to rekindle what they had on vacation for a chance at happily ever after?

    Good story with an interesting concept! Ellie and Sam meet at a resort and spend time together only to be pulled apart. Running into each other again under crazy circumstances, through both into a whirlwind. It's hard to say too much without giving everything away and I hate to do that. You just need to read it! The characters are great, its well written, and I haven't read a story line like it. Great job!

I was so captivated by their explosive chemistry and the romantic setting, that I had to keep reading well into the night. Ellie is strong willed, independent and was in dire need of a vacation when she met Sam, who I fell in love with right away. He is handsome, romantic, serious, thoughtful and a talented soccer player. Ellie and Sam are a very passionate couple and I enjoyed watching their romance blossom. Life was perfect at the magical resort, and it was what we all wish could happen to us just once in our lives. The descriptions of their hotel, the flowers and the sea turtles were so vivid, I felt as if I was at the resort with them. Ellie and Sam’s devotion developed very quickly, and they were always honest and caring with each other. Vacations always come to an end and then we go home to become the people we were when we left. Tired, overworked, sick of our jobs, lonely and existing only on our memories of the special time away that was much too short. Can Ellie and Sam rekindle the love they found on vacation or will the cold reality of life surround them with too many obstacles to overcome?

    hmm...I'm not sure how to review this because it wasn't a bad story but it was hard to stay focused while reading it. Now, with that being said, it could have been because life was crazy busy so I do plan to re-read it when I get a chance but for right now I have to say that it was just an 'ok' read.

The story has several twists that make the couple’s future questionable. The characters are in flux all the time. By that, I mean I couldn’t decide if the author wants me to like them or not. Sometimes I find myself rooting for them, then I can’t decide if I care or not. Into Thin Air is my first book by Kristina Beck. I’m not familiar with her style, but I like what I find in this story. I don’t have a problem with bizarre stories that have breadcrumbs that lead the reader down different paths, but Into This Air confused me…a lot. So much so, that I didn’t know how to feel even at the end. It is an exciting adventure. It took a little determination to get into the substance of the story. I started and stopped reading a few times. In my opinion, it is a pseudo-paranormal romance. I’m saying that maybe because of “the dream.” In some ways Into Thin Air reminds me of a Twilight Zone episode too. I do love unique storylines, and Into Thin Air is what I call unique. My most significant criticism is the back and forth, judging the characters’ present by their past actions and experiences. At some point, we have to believe everyone can change. Waiting until the very end for that to happen frustrates me a little. Sometimes, I could put myself in Ellie’s head, and sometimes I want to slap her; the same with Sam. Lies of omission are still lying. Also, I can’t understand why Ellie didn’t reach out to Sam when he sent her notes with gifts. Like I said, frustrating. Maybe Kristina Beck wants the reader to experience frustration like the characters. Into Thin Air is an OK read. It does make me want to check out other books by Ms. Beck. She has an engaging style that makes me want more.

    Well then .... this was definitely a very unique premise which automatically means that reviewing this will be difficult without giving away major plot points! I certainly enjoyed this read. It’s not necessarily paranormal yet there is an element of a sort of fantastical twist that I’ve never really considered before but now that’s it’s been laid out in this book, it definitely makes me wonder - could this truly happen? Sam is a 32 year old famous soccer player and Ellie is a 31 year old lawyer Well then .... this was definitely a very unique premise which automatically means that reviewing this will be difficult without giving away major plot points! I certainly enjoyed this read. It’s not necessarily paranormal yet there is an element of a sort of fantastical twist that I’ve never really considered before but now that’s it’s been laid out in this book, it definitely makes me wonder - could this truly happen? Sam is a 32 year old famous soccer player and Ellie is a 31 year old lawyer who both find themselves on an island on vacation solo with the express purpose of having some alone time. But the moment Sam sees Ellie - he has to know her. When you read the beginning of this book and their time on the island - it’s almost like the entire experience is cloaked in some ethereal type of gauzy material. Nothing is quite clear yet you see and feel everything. The connection Sam and Ellie form is complete insta-love but it’s intense and real and as a reader - you totally fall for it. Especially Sam ... holy eff. He’s um.... perfect. #mine. Tragedy strikes and the next thing our MC’s know, they are in hospital, separated and with a different life. As if the island never existed yet they are both left with their memories and the intense love they feel for eachother. Wait what?! I know right. What is going on. Will they find their way back to eachother? What happened on the island? Where is the island? Was it real? What the hell happened and how can they get it back when they have such different realities?!? It was really engaging. Sam was definitely my favourite character in this book with his unwavering love and devotion. I liked Ellie too but I’d have liked her slightly better if she could just figure out what she wants!! And the secondary characters that supported our MC’s in this book were top notch. This book has mystery and confusion and love and obstacles with a little bit of a magical miracle sprinkled in. Great read!

    Into Thin Air, the newest book from Kristina Beck, has just been released. It is a beautiful story of Ellie and Sam who seem to have found their ideal love but then they need to confront the harsh reality and struggle to survive as a couple and to save everything they believed in.

As in the Collide series, we get the narration from two angles and this is what I also like about Kristina's books – we can accompany both characters as the story unfolds. I loved the concept of this book. The story is very well written, with an intriguing plot and juicy characters (yes, apart from juicy lemons there are also some juicy folks in it ;)). What about "a magical twist" of which we learn from the description of the book? I was very curious about this aspect too and… yes, there is magic… but – I will tell you no more. I couldn't spoil your experience of discovering it :) You need to find out what incredible story happened to Sam and Ellie. P.S. Bonus stars for a beautiful cover :)

    Ellie is on a much-needed dream vacation away from her boss and the pressures of work as a lawyer. She meets Sam, a professional soccer player enjoying some time off from the real world. While Ellie is wary of relationships seeing failed ones every day, she can't deny being drawn to Sam. What ensues is a week of the two growing close in the idyllic setting perfect for romance. I need to be vague with my review because it would be easy to spoil such a wonderful story.

What ensues is a week of the two growing close in the idyllic setting perfect for romance. I need to be vague with my review because it would be easy to spoil such a wonderful story. After knowing each other for a day, they both knew there was an incredible connection, things just felt easy and right between the two. Ellie is the strong main character we need because she's strong and assertive, she's a bit insecure in her relationship and that's completely understandable. Sam is sweet, he's open with his feelings, their relationship makes you swoon. I was lucky enough to be able to Beta read this and I'm so pleased I was asked to. This was such an interesting and well thought out story, there's more to their relationship at play than the reader realizes. The characters are great and I really liked Cass and would love to see her get her own book. There's the right amount of tension, drama, and romance, a great combo for another wonderful read from author Kristina Beck, very well done!

    I received an ARC copy of this book from the author through a Facebook group. I had never heard of Ms Beck before, and had not read any of her other books. I can say without a doubt that this book can be read as a standalone, because it wasn't until I logged in on GoodReads to find the book to leave a review that I realized that this is part of a series. At the time of writing I haven't yet looked at the descriptions for the other books.

At the time of writing I haven't yet looked at the descriptions for the other books. I will definitely be reading more by this author, and I am very sincerely hoping that one of them is Cass and JT's story. Yes, I have a near fetish level obsession with rockstar romance, but since JT wasn't more than a few only briefly mentions, there must be more to the story. There is, I fell in love with Cass and want to know more about both of them. Without going near spoiler territory, I have to say this is one of the most unique stories I have ever read. I really don't want to say much more about Sam and Ellie because this is one of those stories you need to go into blind. If something seems a bit off in early chapters, hang in there. There is a reason for it, but you'll never guess what it is until you've read it yourself. I am really impressed when something is capable of surprising me so much. Highly recommended. It's a great romp out of the realms of reality without actually being paranormal.

    Having read and enjoyed the author's Collide series, I was intrigued to see what this new book would be like. I wasn't disappointed! I think this is her best book so far - it's well written, the two main characters are people you care for, and it has a story line that will take your breath away. (It has the most gorgeous cover I've seen in a long time!) Ellie and Sam meet are taking some much-needed time out from their lives at an exotic resort when they meet up, and fall in love.

I'm not going to give away any spoilers, but there are a few surprises along the way that will keep you gripped until the end. This is a great read for anyone who loves contemporary romance. Highly recommend!

    What a ride. This book was completely different to my usual read (still in the romance category, but outside the box.) Two people brought together by worlds apart. Ellie and Sam meet. Everything about them is overwhelming and mysterious. What if you meet the person you are supposed to be with, but the world around you is a blur? Would you call it love? This book is wrapped in mystery and suspense. To tell you anything about it would give you a glimpse into reality when the fantasy is full of What a ride.

It's passionate, crazy and up in the air. For the daydreamer and the outside thinker. *I received an ARC as a competition win. My review is honest and my own.

    Stella's life is out of control, with the demands that are overtaking her, so she decides she needs some peace, so she ends up at a beautiful resort for rest & relaxation. She has a neighbor named Samuel, who is also running away from the real world. They start to enjoy each other's company, and things are simply almost too beautiful to be true. I'm going along thinking that this is going to be one of those stories that is completely romantic when BAM! A twist so big, and so insane that I Stella's life is out of control, with the demands that are overtaking her, so she decides she needs some peace, so she ends up at a beautiful resort for rest & relaxation.

I'm going along thinking that this is going to be one of those stories that is completely romantic when BAM! A twist so big, and so insane that I was left speechless, so finally when I could speak again, the f-bombs started dropping right & left. All of a sudden this story has taken another turn, so I started turning the pages so fast, because I needed to know what the hell was going on. There were questions, but I feel like some of them weren't answered at all, which is messing with my head, especially after the rug was pulled out from under Samuel, Stella, & me, the pace really took off. So how do two people land in the same place & share that strong connection? And how did it all pan out at the end of the day? Well, you'll have to one click it to find out, and maybe I missed something that you'll see, so please let me know! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

    3.5 star I love an easy to read romance book. Into Thin Air sounded like just the book. It was. It was easy, it was fun, and there were unique twists to the story. I love how it started with the characters meeting and feeling an instant attraction but were still cautious enough not to just let it all go and jump into bed. They both told what they were looking for at the time and both understood that the vacation they were on was to get away from the stresses of everyday life. Of course, their 3.5 star I love an easy to read romance book. Into Thin Air sounded like just the book. It was. It was easy, it was fun, and there were unique twists to the story. I love how it started with the characters meeting and feeling an instant attraction but were still cautious enough not to just let it all go and jump into bed. They both told what they were looking for at the time and both understood that the vacation they were on was to get away from the stresses of everyday life. Of course, their feelings got stronger and their relationship developed and then the twist happened. The twist… what a twist! It was a unique happening in a book that could have been like so many others. Sam and Ellie stood by what they knew had happened and didn’t let others sway their thoughts, but they were also cautious with moving forward. They had to understand, respect, and figure things out in their own time. From the synopsis, I thought there would be a little bit more magic in the story. There wasn’t anything magic or paranormal about the story really. Now that I’ve finished the book, I am not sure that I would want to change anything.
