New Heights by Quinn Anderson

Their romance might be canceled before it ever takes off.

After attending a friend’s wedding in New York, James Thompson is eager to go home, even though no one will be waiting for him at the gate. He has no expectations for his trip back to Charleston other than long lines, security, and bad airplane food. But when an annoying—albeit hot—stranger cuts him in line, James is determined not to be a pushover for once.

For Mika “It’s Mee-kuh, not Micah” Bailey, today’s just another day of boring work travel. That is, until his flight gets delayed, and some irritating (but handsome) guy keeps hogging all the good power outlets. Which means war. In the middle of an airport. In New York. What could go wrong?

Eventually, they declare a truce, and as they get to know each other, their attraction overwhelms them both. Terrified of what he’s feeling, Mika suggests a no-strings hookup, but serial-monogamist James wants more. If they don’t fight for what’s right in front of them, their romance might be canceled before it ever takes off.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

I have to confess that this is the first book by Quinn Anderson that I haven’t fallen in love with. The premise is great – two very different strangers meet in an airport while waiting for a delayed flight. It’s the story and the characters that I struggled with.

Sadly, I didn’t really enjoy either James or Mika as characters. I felt like so much energy went into making them opposites that they stopped feeling like actual people. I struggled to have any sympathy for either of them. The miscommunication between James and Mika was infuriating after a while. I understood the attraction between them, but the timeline is too short to build any real chemistry and I really struggled to believe in the HFN (happy for now).

I’m leaving this review short. The book didn’t work for me, but I hate writing a negative review for an author I usually love. This might be a blip, or it might just be me.

Quinn Anderson earned a master’s degree from the University of Dublin in Ireland and is also a University of Florida alumna with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. She began writing books, poetry, and fan fiction at fourteen years of age and was first published at nineteen. Her favorite authors include Gail Carson Levine, Libba Bray, Tamorra Pierce, and T.A. Barron. A nerd extraordinaire, Quinn draws inspiration from pop culture and makes far too many obscure references. Quinn’s favorite thing to write is witty dialogue, and her favorite thing to read is a slow burn.
