Coming up for Air by Miranda Kenneally is the last book in the Hundred Oaks series. I have only read one other book in this series that was about soccer, so you don’t need to read the other books in the series before reading this one, not even for the epilouge in the end.
Coming up For Air was about Maggie and Levi. They were swimmers trying to compete for the Olympic trials. Maggie realized she didn’t have much experience outside of swimming and she wanted to learn how to hook up. It ended up being a steamy best friends to lovers kind of read.
I liked the aspect of this book. I’ve always been interested in sports romances for the last few years, and I’m even more of a sucker for best friends to lovers stories. It also helped that I was also still in the mood for young adult contemporary romance.
Levi also became my book boyfriend in this book. I’m a sucker for guys that like Harry Potter, so ob…viously I’m going to fall for any type of character that appreciates that series as well! He also read Divergent and mentioned a Raven’s series…maybe the one by Maggie S? I just loved all of the literary references.
I liked Maggie well enough, but she annoyed me a couple of times. I loved Levi so much, so he ended up being the reason why I finished the book despite the fact that he pulled a jerk move on Maggie. I did think she did grow as a character at the end of the book, so I did like her more in the end.
I also loved the secondary characters like Hunter and Shelby, Georgia and a few other of the characters. I always like it when authors try to spend time with those characters too. I will definitely be trying out other books in this series.
Overall, this book was a four for me.
