In Flight by R.K. Lilley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
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.
This book is intended for ages 18 and up.
I really wanted to love this. I'd heard so many great things about this book and I have to say, I couldn't wait to get my hands in this.
Sadly, I wasn't impressed. I wanted fireworks and champagne to flow and I wanted to be drunk with the excitement of what lie with the pages of this book. And yes there were a few moments I stumbled from the intoxication of the story but something felt missing or maybe lacking.
I do have to say that Bianca is probably the main reason I'm giving this book so many stars. She was a very strong woman who had been dealt a shity hand but she knows where her loyalties are. Her love of herself and her well being was something new for me to see in a character with such a harsh past. But through it all she's able to take care of herself and knows that she needs no man to complete her. She's knows she deserve more and isn't willing to take anything less.
James may have been trying to save Bianca from all the exposure he is used to but he never asked her where she stood and when a bit of his life comes to light Bianca can stand on her own and moves forward with her life. Not as strong of course, her hearts been shattered into pieces but she's still able to say no to James.
I want to read more about what's going to happen. I think Bianca and James can be happy but only if James is willing to meet her halfway.
