Fine I will but let me just start by saying I have been attached to this book since Crystal started putting out teasers before it was released and then she shared a fan made trailer and I was like a little kid waiting for Christmas. The minute I started this book I was in love and I was amazed with what Crystal accomplished. The girl definitely does not disappoint and for that I want to kiss her face.
"You can't go into a relationship knowing the outcome. You're either going to love someone for the rest of your life or fall out of love."
Ok so where to start, this was a story about two dancers both in their first year at Juilliard. Although we meet several characters, and the book is written from several POV's, the main focus is on Natalia and Samson. Both share more than just the same professional goal and throughout the story we really find that out.
Dancing defined who I was. It was my own personal language, and between these walls, everyone was fluent.
We start off meeting Natalia and can I just say I felt for this girl from the first page. She is a true daddy's girl who had him taken away from her way to soon. Natalia's mother puts more than a lot of pressure on her. I loved that even with this pressure she had this love for ballet that you could feel. She was so determined to succeed. I loved that she was strong, she was funny and she was real. Yes, she made me cry, she made me mad and I think I fell in love her. Just when I thought she couldn't be topped Crystal adds Samson in her life and I think I lost my breath.
"From the moment I'd first laid my eyes on him, he was like a virus I couldn't seem to kick."
Samson, this boy gives a new meaning to HOT male dancer. Not joking I totally want to sign up to see the boy in tights. He was as broken as Natalia but Samson is that Preppy rich boy you assume was given everything. But as you get to know him you find this loving, caring, disciplined dancer who makes you rethink what you have thought about male dancers. The chemistry between him and Natalia is felt by everyone. They dance as one, and you can feel they belong together. But there is one problem, there is a girlfriend....
"I imagined Samson with Aubrey, lying on his bed, laughing. It hurt me to think of them together."
Aubrey, she is everything you hate in spoiled, bratty rich girls. We all know them they are played out in every movie we hate, we have seen them in real life. The grown women who throw temper tantrums when life doesn't do what they have planned. She is one of those characters I wanted to reach in the book and slap hard. I will say I give her props for fighting for her man even if she was maybe pushed to do it. There love is truly a story of a friendship that turned into first love, a love that grows in different directions and now has to learn to let go.
"As I walked toward Natalia, Kingsley came into view and all of my happiness evaporated. I was definitely going to be cock-blocked all night."
Oh Kingsley my favorite character of the series. She is abrasive and doesn't care what people think about her. She has a hidden past and she has a guard around her hiding her pain and loneliness. I love this girl and I so want more of her story and to see her get her HEA.
This book was everything I wanted, everything I expected and left me with a smile on my face!! It gave me everything I love drama, heartbreak, friendship, and of course passion. It left me wanting to watch Center Stage and wanting my own pair of red pointe shoes (Don't act like you don't want a pair.) I also might have placed Samson a little high on my Book boyfriend shelf. That's right he is now one of my boys and I would prefer if you didn't touch him to much but you can borrow and believe me you absolutely want to read this and borrow him for a couple nights from me!!
"How do you that?" I asked, out of breath.
"Do what? This?" Samson bent forward and kissed me again, more forceful this time. "Are you done yelling at me or do I need to kiss you some more?"
Ummmm I am thinking you could kiss me one time Samson that would only be fair.
Crystal's debut is delightful and intoxicating, I loved experiencing a world I was unfamiliar with, and emotions that while familiar (overwhelming and awkward unexpected attraction, dangerous desires and inappropriate actions) are freshly imagined and conveyed. Do yourself a favor and abandon yourself to the collision of two intense souls whose dreams and desires draw strength from each other, even as the world seems to try to pull them apart. Lots of cool side characters (Kingsley o Kingsley, wherefor art thou cray cray) and musical references make this an artistic and emotional experience that will leave you swoony and satisfied, while still thirsty for more of Crystal's champagne prose.
"Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the stars refuse to shine
Out of the back you fall in time
I somehow find
You and I collide"
Howie Day, Collide
(This songs reminds me of Natalia and Samson in lots of ways, see what you think!)
In The Air by Crystal Serowka
Stars: 3.5 of 5
Format: Ebook / Kindle
Genre: New Adult, Romance, Contemporary, College
Natalie's father supported her dream of being a dancer and didn't want the fact that his losing a battle against cancer to stop her from her dreams. Before he died he made sure push Natalie to apply to attend Julliard to further her career as a dancer.
For years Samson knew he wanted to take his passion of dancing as far as it would take him. Against his fathers wishes when he went off to college he went to be a dancer rather then the doctor his father wanted him to be.
Natalie and Samson are paired together for dance class and have a connection that neither can deny. Problems have a way of getting between them but they will try to make it work.
"Natalia, I'm sick of holding myself back. Hiding who I really am so I just so I can make everyone else happy"
To me this was a quick enjoyable read. This was the first time I've come across a book with dance aspects in it. I liked how the story would describe the scenes in detail where you can really picture how everything looked. Being that dance brought them together I wish there would've been more talk about it. There was many point of views to really get to understand each and every character in the story. Even though I love a fast paced story, this one was too fast I wished there could've been more development with the relationship between the two. The story felt rushed.
"Life is s*** we all know that, which is why you have to make it your bitch."
