Virtual Book Tour: New Heights by Quinn Anderson (Reviews+Giveaway)

I’m here to share some inside information about New Heights, coming out March 12th, including fun facts and more.

About New Heights

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.

4.5 Stars

Mika and James meet at the airport in New York when their flight is delayed due to a winter storm. Although they start off rough as the day progresses and they get to know one another better, the instant attraction builds into something much more than just physical.

This was such a cute feel-good story. I absolutely loved James and Mika and I loved watching them bicker and prank one another throughout the hours they spent at the airport. They are complete polar opposites, but they brought out the best in each other and they fit together perfectly. Those differences balanced each other out and really worked.

The progression was a bit fast, but for James and Mika it worked and it didn’t feel rushed at all and they had amazing chemistry.

The story was well-written, funny, sweet and a bit sexy and the ending was swoon-worthy. This was a fabulous, quick and enjoyable read that I’d definitely recommend!

4.5 Stars!!!

I absolutely adored this book! It was sweet and fun and hot all wrapped up in a neat opposites-attract package.

Mika and James couldn't be more different if they tried and while that made them clash when they met, they ended up bringing out the best in each other, making them each grow as a person in the process. I loved their back-and-forth banter and the fun pranks. It was great seeing sweet, yet high-strung James let go a bit and easygoing Mika realize that more than a hookup, he wanted someone that would take him seriously.

The chemistry between them was electric and while they gave into their attraction pretty quickly timewise, it never felt rushed.

Overall, while I won't claim I've read every book by Quinn Anderson, the ones I've read I've loved and this wasn't the exception. It was a hot, sweet, low angst read with the most delightful epilogue and I'm sure I'll read it again. Very recommendable!

About Quinn Anderson

Quinn Anderson is an alumna of the University of Dublin in Ireland and has a master’s degree in psychology. She wrote her dissertation on sexuality in popular literature and continues to explore evolving themes in erotica in her professional life.

A nerd extraordinaire, she was raised on an unhealthy diet of video games, anime, pop culture, and comics from infancy. Her girlfriend swears her sense of humor is just one big Joss Whedon reference. She stays true to her nerd roots in writing and in life, and frequently draws inspiration from her many fandoms, which include Yuri on Ice, Harry Potter, Star Wars, Buffy, and more. Growing up, while most of her friends were fighting evil by moonlight, Anderson was kamehameha-ing her way through all the shounen anime she could get her hands on. You will often find her interacting with fellow fans online and offline via conventions and Tumblr, and she is happy to talk about anything from nerd life to writing tips. She has attended conventions on three separate continents and now considers herself a career geek. She advises anyone who attends pop culture events in the UK to watch out for Weeping Angels, as they are everywhere. If you’re at an event, and you see a 6’2” redhead wandering around with a vague look on her face, that’s probably her.

Her favorite authors include J.K. Rowling, Gail Carson Levine, Libba Bray, and Tamora Pierce. When she’s not writing, she enjoys traveling, cooking, spending too much time on the internet, playing fetch with her cat, screwing the rules, watching Markiplier play games she’s too scared to play herself, and catching ’em all.
