Publisher's Summary

Book 2 of the in the Up In The Air trilogy.

James and Bianca's tumultuous story continues in the sequel to In Flight.

James has initiated Bianca into a dark and drugging world of passion and pain. He taught her about her own submissive, masochistic nature, and she fell swiftly and deeply in love with the undeniably charming and impossibly beautiful Mr. Cavendish, but a painful misunderstanding and the return of the brutally violent demons of her past have combined to overwhelm Bianca, and, confused and hurt, she pushes him away.

It's been over a month since the shocking attack that hospitalized her, and since she told a distraught James that she needed space, but her feelings haven't gone away. Even she knew that it was only a matter of time before he would cast his spell on her again...

This book is intended for ages 18 and up.

    Story
    "OMG this COMPLETELY blew book 1 out of the water!!"

    Wow..Oh...Wow...I'm not kidding when I say the sequel completely blew the first book out of the water!!! For some reason, I just couldn't connect with these characters in the first book. I almost didn't continue with the sequel but now I'm sure glad I did.The story begins around one month after the events of the first book, In Flight, it picks up with the drama straight away, with James and Bianca still struggling with their tumultuous relationship. They both still want each other, badly, but Bianca has issues with the relationship side. So, she is taking a break from James while trying to collect her thoughts & pull herself together. Being with James is scary for her. He's the only man she's ever had feelings for and she can't think clearly when he's near her. At times, I did find Bianca a bit more irritating & frustrating in this book rather than the first. And James Cavendish, you have slowly won me over & rocked my world! Let me just take a minute to fan my self....whew! Hot, Delicious, Smexy man!! His character was definitely more engaging in this book less abrasive. We see a softer deeper side of him. James is full on head over heals in love with her in this book. He wants her so badly and will not stop until he gets what he desires from her. His feelings for Bianca run extremely deep. When she finally acquiesces and allows herself to meet up with James at a party the sparks ignite and their relationship moves quickly. Of course, this is mostly due to James and I wouldn't have expected any less! He is certainly the man who knows what he wants and will go ALL OUT to make it happen.However, he has a ton of work ahead of him trying to get Bianca to open up and see the relationship for what it is. Yes, James is still controlling and dominant, he mostly keeps it restricted to the bedroom, although he is bossy and involves himself in Bianca’s life in any way that he can. But, this is fiction, it’s expected from him, and we love it! And he seems to know what she needs. I did find some of their behaviour together a little strange (the undressing, bathing, and then there’s the other side with the punishment stuff), but I guess it did works for them. Regardless, their chemistry is absolutely palpable as well as in the BDSM element. The steamy scenes in this book are even more SIZZLING HOT in this book than the last. Actually, there were some very unique sex time moments. (I did eye roll during one but it was still entertaining). I really liked the BDSM in this one. It wasn't too much and didn't feel overwhelming. Overall, the story focused on Bianca & James' relationship as they deal with past partners, jealously, paparazzi and some revelation regarding her family towards the end. And this is when I share how much I HATE FREAKING CLIFFHANGERS!!! So, as you can guess the drama continues with Bianca’s family and James’ exes, and with particular storylines that were left undone and twists uncovered, I’m looking forward to seeing further developments in the next book. In fact, I'm very anxious for Audible to release the 3rd book Grounded! For me Mile High was the perfect combo of sex, sex, sex *wink* wink*, love and domination. James really lit up the pages keeping us fully in tune to his dominating ways. Bianca was the perfect submissive learning that with James she's exactly where she's suppose to be. For a sequel, I was extremely impressed, and I felt as though the author did a superb job of keeping the story spicy and interesting. The character development ans pace were great. I would absolutely recommend this series.

    I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.

    "Invested in this story"

    I got hooked from the first book and it look's like I'll be getting book 3 when it comes out. I want to know what finally happens. The sexy parts are pretty good but I have to admit it's the wanting to know how the story goes that has my interest. I've really enjoyed the female character in this series. She really has our hot alfa guy tied up in knots. The secondary stories are interesting too. Plus this has the murderer that hasn't been brought to justice. So yes to this book, and waiting on book 3.

    Any additional comments?

    I just read this new series (only book 1 and 2 out so far) and Loved It - STEAMY in capitals! Ok first things first, I LOVE the characters in this series. If you loved 50 Shades and Bared to you you will love this book. I know a lot of women swooned after Christian Grey but did you really identify with Ana Steele? Well I definitely identified with Bianca Karlsson. She’s strong and definitely the one holding the reins. As for James Cavendish….wowza! He’s a mix of Christian Grey and Gideon Cross and definitely my new book boyfriend ;) very alpha, possessive, dominant male. So what’s the book about? First all of its Erotic Romance. A genre i love. Its about a first class flight attendant Bianca Karlsson who meets a billionaire hotel owner James Cavendish. They both have their demons but are instantly attracted to each other, mostly because of their clear sexual..erm…predilection. Why did i love love LOVE it? Again, the characters were believable, the girl was strong and the man was sooo swoon worthy but also so honest! Plus the sex scenes were crazy steamy! It was just such a joy to listen to this book and can't wait for the conclusion of this trilogy to be released on Audible...

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Well-spent is a high threshold so I'd have to say meh. The sexy parts were fun. Though no humor was intended I did have to laugh out loud a couple of times at the cheesy romance novel cliches. It does pull you in, though, waiting to hear what's next. Better than Book 1.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mile High?

    The revelation of James' tattoos.


    What didn’t you like about Elizabeth Powers’s performance?

    She sounded like a beauty contestant/Barbie Doll. There was no effort to convey differences between multiple female character voices, and she didn't even bother to consistently lower the scale of her voice for James' lines.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    This seemed to be written by a talented college girl. Disappointingly poorly edited. Glaring grammatical errors and use of close-but-wrong words were jarring mood-killers. I HATE cliffhangers -- after all, this isn't TV -- and thus felt cheated by the abrupt ending. There should be a warning so those of us who are so offended by them can avoid these books.

    "Exceeded Expectations"

    Which were, admittedly, pretty low. Even though this book, the second in the series followed the most overused plot line in recent history - billionaire falls for a beautiful innocent who doesn't realize she is beautiful - there is actually a subplot, with tension and suspense. This is a better book than expected, probably a better book than it deserves to be with the silly cover picture, which makes no sense.

    The narration was good and even though it ended with several questions still unanswered, since of course, there is a book 3, you didn't get the feeling that the author ended mid-sentence as they seem to do in so many of these series.

    So, if you are OK with the sex, and there is lots of it, then this is an OK romance made slightly better by the mystery and suspense.

    "I AM FLYING HIGH NOW!!! WOW IT'S GREAT!"
    Where does Mile High rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Well it ranks in the top 10 for me.. but here is the sad part.. Audible don't carry the 3rd book.. What kind of Hot Mess is that?


    What other book might you compare Mile High to and why?

    FSOG with a great story line


    Have you listened to any of Elizabeth Powers’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    just these two books so far


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, a lot of them..


    Any additional comments?

    This book Book 2 picked right up where Book one left off.. Love when that happens. So.. Bianca recovering and she finally see's James, and they pick up with some understandings. However, in this book, I found that they went back and forth about who trust who the most or who is doing what on who. A lot of history is brought up when they should let it go. I mean I know she was a virgin, and not going to have much of a past, not like him, but she knows this..he tells her everything..she is hard on Mr. Beautiful I think.. But anyway, they find out a shocker thru this book and they are more in love than ever and you get ready to listen to book 3 and GUESS WHAT.. AUDIBLE DON'T HAVE BOOK 3. OMGOSH.. WELL GUESS I AM GOING TO GO BUY A BOOK TOMORROW, AUDIBLE NEEDS TO STOP DOING THIS TO US.. MAKES ME WANT TO JUST STOP WITH LISTENING TO BOOKS AND GO BACK TO READING AGAIN.i DO BOTH, AND THAT'S OK,, BUT DON'T ADVERTISE THIS SERIES AND THEN DON'T CARRY IT.

    "Great continuation!!!"

    So we get lots of answers, though I must say this book could have contained more information and less sex...did I say that??? Seriously? The only issues I have with the sex is that we don't get much depth in the story with all the sex. I do like how Bianca stands up for herself and for James. So much drama!!!

    I must say that he look of the covers actually deterred me from these books for a bit, I like a strong leading lady, not some damsel but Bianca is pretty darn good, these pics are not remotely closed to her actual personality.

    There is a book 3, which you will have to immediately read, but honestly it isn't audible yet and it is full length but it isn't optional. So, plan to spend several hours actually on the couch reading after you finish these 2! I am sure they'll get the third book on audible soon, though I don't know it.

    I have to admit that I am very invested in this series. I could not put this one down and will be awaiting for book 3. The story was interesting and holds your attention. There is a lot of drama going on in this book. The female lead character was extremely frustrating for me. She was too much self doubting and negative about everything. I really wanted to slap her! Other than that this book is a must read. I now have to know how this story ends.

    "About the same as the first"

    I'm going to be the odd one on this review as I am no more in love with this one as I was on book 1. I don't want to spoil the book so I will say that I didn't find it realistic how you cut yourself off from someone then jump back in full force without talking things out. It felt like something a teenager would do.

    Just didn't work for me.
