Release Blitz + ARC Review: ‘A Cosmic Kind of Love’ by Samantha Young

Space is the last thing an event planner and an astronaut need in this charming new romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Samantha Young.



Space is the last thing an event planner and an astronaut need in this charming new romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Samantha Young.

When event planner Hallie Goodman receives party-inspiration material from the bride of her latest wedding project, the last thing she expects to find in the files are digital videos from Darcy’s ex-boyfriend. Hallie knows it’s wrong to keep watching these personal videos, but this guy is cute, funny, and an astronaut on the International Space Station to boot. She’s only human. And it’s not long until she starts sending e-mails and video diaries to his discontinued NASA address. Since they’re bouncing back, there’s no way anyone will ever be able to see them…right?

Christopher Ortiz is readjusting to life on earth and being constantly in the shadow of his deceased older brother. When a friend from NASA’s IT department forwards him the e-mails and video messages Hallie has sent, he can’t help but notice how much her sense of humor and pink hair make his heart race.

Separated by screens, Hallie and Chris are falling in love with each other, one transmission at a time. But can they make their star-crossed romance work when they each learn the other’s baggage?

4 ‘Mi cielo’ Stars!

ARC provided by the the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

The premise for this story definitely caught my attention. And when I saw one of my favorite authors was the creator, I was all over the idea. I mean, when I saw the words “astronaut hero”, “event planner” and “romantic comedy” I was oh-so-ready to read A Cosmic Kind of Love. Samantha Young and Berkley Publishing join forces again with a unique, heartwarming love story that will make you fall in love with Captain Christopher Ortiz and his “cielo”.

So, A Cosmic Kind of Love is Young’s upcoming standalone and, as I mentioned, it’s the love story between a former astronaut and a quirky event planner. But their paths cross in a very peculiar way. Hallie Goodman is planning Chris’ ex’s wedding and she “meets” him watching some old videos Chris sent to Darcy while he was in space. Chris is readjusting after coming back and he is not having it with these videos he keeps receiving from a stranger. Or is he? A strong connection starts without them even meeting in person and when they finally do? Get ready for this emotional and adorable space ride!

It seemed we were drawn to each other like binary stars. It was addictive and disorienting.

I have to say one thing. I devoured this book in less than a day (which is pretty fast for me nowadays). I was sucked right into this story and the backgrounds of these two unique characters. This love story is not only rare because of Chris and Hallie, it’s different because it deals with important issues in today’s world. Also, the theme of space is very much new to me in romance and I find that very refreshing. I do have to confess though; this is one heck of a slow burn. We definitely have to wait quite a while for this couple to get together and it was a bit too slow for me sometimes. But I still loved to read every single page to get to its HEA.

“But being yours . . . that’s the only thing in my life I am one hundred percent certain I want and need to be.”

Therefore, I am rating A Cosmic Kind of Love with 4 STARS because, of course, Samantha Young’s writing continues to be one of my favorite ones, I loved this unique, heartfelt love story and its extraordinary characters. It has a little bit of everything (even though the slow burn was a bit too much for me) and I loved reading and meeting Captain Chris Ortiz and Hallie Goodman. If you are a fan of Samantha’s writing, save the date and grab your copy on October 18th!
