I have to say I really like this series, and more than that I loved the way this one ended. So many times, I have gotten to the end of a series and I’ve liked the ending or thought it was just okay, but this time, this time I loved the ending. This is no time jump from the previous book to this one, so you really need to read the first two books before walking into this one. So I want to start with talking about how much I love these two characters together. They both have some unique histories, but the two of them together seem to be able to give each other what the other one needs in a way that totally works for them. I know some readers have issues with some elements of BDSM, but I think in the context of these characters I feel like it totally works for them. More than that though there is a great romance going on between them. There chemistry may be off the charts, but they really do love each other. I loved that they weren’t perfect, that they have fights and miscommunications just like everyone else, but they actually are really learning how to deal with those in a way they maybe hadn’t been able to in the previous two books, and it gave them a really authentic feeling. You just can’t read this book without at least mentioning Stephan, he’s seriously one of the best characters/parts […]

Mile High by R.K. Lilley

So to start off with, you have to read the first book in this series before starting on this one, so if you haven’t read In Flight, pick it up before this one. Once again this is definitely a hot dominant rich guy book, so if that’s your cup of tea you definitely came to the right place. This book picks up shortly after book one, although there is a small time jump, a few weeks or so. I’m not sure who to talk about first, Bianca or James, because both of them have kind of evolved from the first book, and I find both of them pretty interesting. I suppose I’ll start with our resident hot guy, James. You get to see a lot more of the whole dominant side of him in this book then I think you did in the first book. The Fourth Floor playroom comes into play in this book. I have to say I am on the fence when it comes to some of the BDSM scenes I’ve read in recent times, either they read creepy/too over the top, or like the characters are trying to be this “type” and really have no idea how to do it. I have to say the scenes in this book were written really well, it never felt like to much, and it read pretty authentic to the characters (although there is some stuff on a horse that reads completely non-plausible, so be prepared to suspend your beliefs […]

In Flight by R.K. Lilley

So I picked up this book after reading a couple of millionaire hero trilogy type books, and I totally wanted more so after a lot of searching I found this series and I have to say that I am happy that I did. Plus, I know I might be a minority opinion on this one, but I love flying. When I was a kid my parents starting me flying across the country by myself when I was five, in fact for several years my favorite place was O’Hare airport, so I was more than happy to find that this book has some seriously heavy ties to planes, airports, and flight attendants. Bianca is the aforementioned flight attendant, and she works in first class, enter the devilishly handsome James Cavendish (although I did find it slightly annoying how often she actually calls him Mr. Cavendish, I don’t know if it’s his last name that bugs me or that she calls him that). Bianca comes as a sort of package deal with her best friend, Stephan, if I remember correctly they even bought houses right next door to each other so they would never have to be apart. I loved their relationship dynamic, especially since Bianca has kind of closed herself off, whereas Stephan encourages her to get out of her shell a bit more and experience more of her life rather than just going through the motions. James is a pretty interesting character. Both he and Bianca have some issues from […]
