Fed up with the endless demands of her job, Ellie seeks solitude from the chaos. As if by magic, she finds herself all alone in an exotic hotel. That is, until she meets the gorgeous guest next door. As time melts away, Ellie falls hard for Sam. Then he vanishes into thin air, taking his love with him. When he suddenly reappears, he isn’t the Sam she once knew, but her aching heart tells her otherwise.
Sam finds himself at a crossroads in his soccer career when a permanent injury forces him to make a difficult decision. He thinks seclusion in a luxury hotel is what he needs, until he sees the fiery redhead, Ellie. She has no idea who he is and becomes the woman of his dreams.
Like any vacation, it must come to an end… just not in such a tragic way. Sam thinks he’s responsible for Ellie’s death, and when he discovers she’s alive, she doesn’t greet him with open arms. The relentless fight for her dignity and career threatens to end their passionate reunion.
They said their love was infinite, but anything can change when reality comes crashing down.
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.
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.
I cross my arms. “Can you change your past? That’s about the only thing that could save us, and we both know that’s impossible.” “Wow.” He steps away from me, shock and disappointment mixing with the tears on his face. “I can’t believe you said that, that you’d throw my past in my face. Whatever happened to always look forward, never back, Ellie? You’re such a hypocrite,” he snaps. “I guess I am.” I remove his apartment key from my key ring and place it on the table. “Throw my key out. I don’t need it anymore.” I walk toward the door, but he steps in front of me. He cups my face gently and kisses me like it’s our first time again. His love transfuses through my veins and gathers in my heart where it’ll always stay. The taste of our tears mix with the fear of letting go. He leans his forehead against mine. “You’re my first and my last love, Ellie. Our love is infinite. We’ll find our way back to each other. We’ve done the impossible before; we can do it again. Go find your peace. I hope it leads you back to me.”
