Title: In Flight
By: R.K. Lilley
Series: Up in the Air Book 1
My Copy: Ebook from Review from Author
When reserved flight attendant Bianca gets one look at billionaire hotel owner James Cavendish, she loses all of her hard-won composure. For a girl who can easily juggle a tray of champagne flutes at 35,000 feet in three inch heels, she finds herself shockingly weak-kneed from their first encounter. The normally unruffled Bianca can't seem to look away from his electrifying turquoise gaze. They hold a challenge, and a promise, that she finds impossible to resist, and she is a girl who is used to saying no and meaning it.
Bianca is accustomed to dealing with supermodels and movie stars in her job as a first class flight attendant, but James Cavendish puts them all to shame in the looks department. If only it were just his looks that she found so irresistible about the intimidating man, Bianca could have ignored his attentions. But what tempts her like never before is the dominant pull he seems to have over her from the moment they meet, and the promise of pleasure, and pain, that she reads in his eyes.
I need to start keeping a list of male characters I would like to build for me only. It would kind of be like the movie ‘Weird Science’ where the two geeks build a super model girlfriend named Lisa. But I would build James Cavendish, or Mr. Cavendish, depending on his mood.
Now that I have proclaimed my love for James, lets move on to the book. When I saw this on Goodreads, I knew I needed to have it and I got it, and it was GOOD! You are presented with these two main characters that are innately flawed to the core and in the beginning and you do not know why. You only know that it is the reason why they are they way that they are today. Bianca trusts no one besides her best friend and James loves no one. Through out this book, you start to realize that trust and love can happen, even if it is ever so slowly.
James is a go getter and sets his eyes on Bianca, who initially turns him down but it creates this wonderful friction of tension between that was most delightful for me as a reader. James persistence makes this book deliciously hot and when it pays off, the book soars to a new level. Hot is the only word I can use to describe it.
However, this book isn’t all about their arrangement, there is an side plot as well that maintains throughout the book and it ends with a realization chapter that made me start the next book immediately.
On a side note: I loved how the author labeled all the chapters. It was always, “Mr. (fill in the blank of his mood.) Brilliant!
