The Trouble with Flying (Trouble Series Book 1) (English Edition) Reviews
"The trouble with flying" hat mir mal mal wieder sehr beschwingte Lesestunden gewährt: die Geschichte ist wattewolkenfluffig und insgesamt verbirgt sich in diesem eBook eine sehr gelungene NA-Romance!Ich kenne das wohl zuvor spielende "Forgiven" nicht; "The trouble with flying" ließ sich nun, wie in der Kurzbeschreibung auch so gesagt, als in sich geschlossener, eigenständiger Roman lesen. Der "mild spoiler", vor dem die Kurzbeschreibung wiederum "warnt", meint vermutlich in erster Linie die nach Romanende angehängte Leseprobe des nachfolgenden Bandes "The trouble with flirting". In zweiter Linie wird zwar am Rande innerhalb von "The trouble with flying" durchaus auch schon jene Geschichte erwähnt, die im Nachfolger fokussiert wird, aber dies geschieht sehr beiläufig und absolut nicht offensiv (auch wenn ich durchaus ein wenig neugierig geworden bin, was Sarahs beste Freundin wohl so von ihrem Liebesleben zu erzählen hat).Mild ist hier auch die Sprache und das gesamte Geschehen: Böse geflucht wird nicht und das Unanständigste, was passiert, sind ein paar wenige Küsse, die oftmals auch in der Öffentlichkeit stattfinden.Sarah wird hier zwar durchaus als gläubig geschildert, es finden auch einige Diskussionen bzw. Überlegungen bzgl. einer Gottes-Existenz statt, aber auch diese laufen eher rational und nachdenklich ab. Ich würde zwar nicht abstreiten, dass es sich hier um ein christliches Buch handeln könnte, würde "The trouble with flying" aber auch nicht zwangsläufig auf diese Schiene schubsen: Es handelt sich hier einfach um einen Roman, in dem ab und an darüber nachgedacht wird, ob es Schicksal gibt und ob dieses komplett vorherbestimmt oder doch veränderlich ist.Insgesamt geht es hier auch vor Allem darum, als (junger) Erwachsener überhaupt erst einmal zu sich selbst zu finden.Mir hat "The trouble with flying" sehr, sehr gut gefallen und wem die Leseprobe hier bereits zusagt, dem kann ich nur zu diesem Werk Rachel Morgans raten!
Sarah visited her sister in England and is now flying home to Africa. In the plane she meets Aiden who’s also flying to Africa to attend a family gathering. Sarah doesn’t talk to strangers normally but Aiden flies for the first time and asks Sarah to talk to him and distract him from his thoughts about a plane crash.What a coincidence – Aiden takes the same connection flight as Sarah and they get to know each other a bit more on the second plane. Sarah is smitten by Aiden but soon they have to say goodbye to each other at the airport.Will they see each other again?I had some troubles in the beginning to get into the story and enjoyed the second half of the book a bit more than the first half of it but I love the ending, it’s really cute.I love how the book title got a second meaning. I thought it’s just about the flight from England to Africa, but it’s so much more than that. It’s about to trust in yourself and taking chances. To let yourself fly and when you fall, you let yourself catch by someone who loves you. Loved ones will catch you if you fall and will dare you to do things you’re scared of. But in the end, you’re glad that you did it, because either if you succeeded or not, you don’t need to worry what would have happened if you didn’t do it.Everyone needs somebody to help themselves to face their biggest fears.
I can't even begin to describe how much I loved this novel! This is exactly how a contemporary romance novel should be done, and shows that you don't need to have super steamy moments or language to make readers fall in love. Everything about this book is amazing, from the characters to the setting to the romance. This novel follows Sarah (who is the sister of Julia if you read Forgiven) and Aiden, a random guy she meets on a flight to South Africa. The writing is fantastic and I definitely can't wait to see what other stories Ms. Morgan has in store for us with this series.One of my most favorite aspects of this novel was Sarah. From the minute she is introduced, I loved her. She is awkward, shy, and adorable in all the right ways. And seriously, who can't relate to that? I know I can, and so I was easily able to connect to Sarah. She experiences a lot of ups and downs over the course of the book, but comes out stronger than ever. Sarah experiences a tremendous amount of growth, and it was very refreshing to see, especially when this novel isn't actually that long. It shows what an fantastic author Ms. Morgan is, to accomplish such a feat in a short amount of pages. Aiden was also adorable in every way, and had me cracking up when reading the scenes on the plane. We find out exactly why Aiden has such a fear of flying, and it is heartbreaking. However, the one thing I loved about his character was how he pushed Sarah to overcome her fear of talking to strangers. He was exactly what she needed in her life, and they are honestly perfect for each other.The other thing that I greatly enjoyed in this novel was the setting. The story takes place in Durban, South Africa and honestly, I have never wanted to travel there more than after reading this novel. Everything is so well described, you feel as if you are actually there with the characters eating Zoo Biscuits (which I now really want to try), and visiting all the places they went. Ms. Morgan also included links (at least in the ebook version) to the places that were mentioned so that you could find out more. The setting is exotic and different, and it is perfect for this novel.If you are looking for a sweet, clean NA romance, this is the book for you. You will instantly fall in love with these characters, and be eager for the next novel in the series, The Trouble with Flirting! I know I am. Happy reading :)
This was a cheesy romance book with a bit of religion slipped in, but it was cute. The synopsis, in my opinion, makes the book seem bland, but it wasn’t. There aren’t any hair-raising incidents or edge-of-your-seat issues, but it isn’t boring.Sarah Henley is a shy push-over that isn’t aware of how easily controllable she is. She was an unique and interesting character and her point-of-view was refreshing. She enjoys writing, but she’s allowed herself to try to get her Bachelor of Science instead of pursuing her dream, despite the fact that she’s miserable. Her character development was done tastefully. Aiden pushed her out of her comfort zone because he was out of his comfort zone and she benefited from it. I liked watching her slowly step outside of her protective bubble more frequently as the book continued on, even though it obviously made her uncomfortable at the start. She’s a talented writer from the responses the other characters have made towards the things she’s wrote, but she doesn’t believe it due to a verbally abusive and manipulative boyfriend. I was really rooting for her by the time the book ended.Aiden was a sweet, outgoing, guy that went from hugging Sarah to comfort her to needing comfort and back again. But not in a whiny way, it was more like “I’m staying strong, but if you’re offering a hug, I need one.” It was cute to watch him interact with Sarah and hold her hand as he coaxed her out of her extreme introverted ways. What I loved the most was that he wasn’t her “saving grace.” He didn’t just show up with perfect white teeth, ocean-like blue eyes, handsome golden hair, with rippling muscles, a cologne that smelled like pine and masculinity, and breath that always smelled like peppermint. He was a guy that was handsome but it wasn’t overdone. He had flaws and fears and a heart that loves but still hurts from things in his past. I appreciated that his past wasn’t some deep mysterious thing where he got kidnapped by some secret organization and had to kill everyone to get out. Instead, it was something real and raw that brought him down to earth and made him an even better love interest.I wish they had developed their relationship a bit more, but the ending was smooth and it was tasteful; it wasn’t abrupt or drawn out, so I won’t gripe about it. The rest of the characters were necessary and added to the plot in their own ways which I noticed and appreciated. I loved that Aiden and Sarah met on an airplane and their friendship started off there. It reminded me of the book The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith. The plot was adorable, especially the beginning when they were first meeting and it just continued to get cute from there, and thankfully, it stayed clean the whole way through. The “most” interesting part of the plot was that it’s set in South Africa. I liked the aspect of the book having a family that could talk in a different language and let me experience some of the culture. I want to taste Biltong now!
Sarah's worst nightmare, a cute stranger who wants to talk to her, is about to sit beside her on a long flight from England to South Africa in Rachel Morgan's The Trouble with Flying. Oh my goodness, I loved this book. Sarah is so adorably awkward and shy, and I could easily relate to her. Aiden is hot and weird in his own way. I anxiously awaited to see how these two could possibly meet each other again after their flight. Set against the exotic backdrop of South Africa, this story is an endearing read. I laughed, cringed at Sarah's awkwardness because I totally got it, and teared up at the book's sweetness. I really want to try Zoo Biscuits now too. If you're looking for a clean, new adult romance, then look no further. I was completely engrossed in the story and couldn't get to the next screen page on my Kindle fast enough to know what happened next. The Trouble with Flying by Rachel Morgan is one of my favorite reads this year!
