I found the writing in this book to be well-above average, although I'm partial to the life of travel. There is something about the weary hub of an airport that is simultaneously depressing and intoxicating. There are so many contradictions there it's hard to make sense of what's happening. You've got the sense of luxury with first class passengers and expensive planes, and then there's the hint of squalor as travelers go a dozen hours without adequate rest or time to groom themselves. There is the propriety of a formal, militarized zone, and the hint of lawlessness as people make random connections and engage in quick romances that undercut the lives they've worked so hard to build.
This is the setting for Roxy Jewell's fabulous book about a dreamy stewardess. We follow Lena as she travels to exotic locations. Is she running from something? It used to be that you could leave your troubles behind with travel, but now the world has gotten smaller...then again, maybe it has always been that way. This is a nice, reflective novel especially for people who find themselves drawn to airports!
The magnificent world of the sky come tumbling down with sizzling passions and sensuality in Roxy Jewels latest contemporary romance. Lena Everett’s character is well-define, her traits, emotions and conflicts can easily be identified in most women today and I do believe this is one of the reasons they gravitate towards this book.
When the life of flying around the world in glitz and glam turns too much for one woman, she begins to harbor self-doubts about the love of her life she left behind at home.
Is Jason faithfully waiting for Lena or is he living a double life, one that could tear her heart to shreds? This is one of the best contemporary romance novel’s this book club has seen this month. Roxy Jewel stuns us with all the finesse of a great romance author.

When I read the blurb on this one, I knew I had to give it a read. I've definitely never read a romance about a Stewardess! I love the unique concept. And Roxy Jewell does a great job delivering this one. I could feel everything right alongside Lena. After been married for a decade, it was nice to relive the feeling of falling in love. Lena's character growth throughout the novel was fabulous and well-paced, and the story gave so much more than a romance novel. I look forward to reading more work by Roxy Jewell.
Roxy Jewell tells all. Everything about the exciting life of stewardi -- the love, the lust, the glamour, the excitement, is packed into this romance. The full title tells us what we need to know: To The Sky: A Stewardess - A Contemporary Love Story: Travel Romance - A Travel Fiction Story - Adventure Romance (Flight Attendant Book 1) [Kindle Edition].
Welcome to the high-flying world of flight attendants, Book 1 in a forthcoming series.
I love this book, it is a lovely story of a couple of people who use to be in love, but life gets in their way. The writing style is very alive. You feel as if you are on board the plane with Lena traveling to all corners of the world. I started to read it early in the morning and got so carried away with the story that I left everything I had to do until I had finished the book. This is a great story and I would say it probably will appeal mostly to women of all ages. Highly recommended.
I just finished "To the Sky" by Roxy Jewell. She is becoming one of my favorite authors. It is quite entertaining and found the main character, Lena, to be a woman with heavy choices to make. I couldn’t wait to find out which road she chose. As a flight attendant she flies around the world. It felt as though I was travelling as well, from the clear descriptions of the different destinations. This is a must read that has it all: suspense, love, romance. I highly recommend!
What a delightful romantic adventure. You certainly will want to fly the friendly skies to meet the flight attendant Lena. Roxy Jewell engages her readers right from the start, and it is impossible to stop turning the pages until the end!
A blend of sex, romance and international travel with intriguing and realistic characters.
5 Stars for a wonderful story from a very talented author!
A great romantic novel that is about more than love. Women fall in love with many things - not just someone to spend their lives with - and that's really what this novel is about. I loved reading about Lena and her travels, her experiences, and her mishaps. I enjoyed everything about her and would love to read even more!
A nice romance novella about a high flying beauty that is the perfect length for a domestic flight. Mills and Boon could hardly have done it better. A nice novella, an easy read, and priced to suit the spontaneous buyer. Go for it.
