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 love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
I loved this book! OMG hot and heavy! Great Sex scenes! BDSM but not too much. This writer did a amazing job with this book. I could feel the emotions and pain of the two main charaters. I could not but this book down. If you like the Fifty Shades of Grey series or Crossfire books then these books are for you.
I have a collection of earbuds to match my moods and audio genres. Today was red for romance, tomorrow purple for paranormal...
I was able to adjust the speed at which the narrator spoke and that allowed me to enjoy the book. The smacking and gulping disappeared The first chapter did start poorly but the story improved greatly. The characters are beautifully broken and do actually compliment the other's quirks. It was well written and did not include a lot of inner monologue and emotional angst. The characters conversed with each other often and focused on building a relationship.The bedroom play was kept to a minimum and I found it more educational and amusing than repulsive. (No anal play thankfully.) I recommend adjusting the speed on an app if the narrator is too annoying. Now I am eager to hear Book 2 since it is a to be continued book.
Say something about yourself!
Thank goodness this was awesome! I have been afraid to try this series, too many up and down reviews...it's a rip off of this it's a rip off of that....well I'm here to say it's not a rip off of anything! It's an all new book and an all new story...is there a virgin, is there a billionaire, yes and yes...but the virgin had a good reason to be one...and she's the damaged one...but not super damaged as in some other books. Is there Dom/sub stuff...yes...but in a WHOLE new consensual give and take way.
What can I say....from page one I was totally caught up...I wanted to listen at every moment of the day until it was done, I wanted to know what happened next. Anyone who follows me knows I'm not a fan of contrived drama...drama for the sake of continuing a story line, drama that would never happen if people would just talk to each other. Every book seems to have some to a certain extent, and this one was on the lower end. There was drama but it was of the needed and emotional roller coaster kind. I have to say I hated the main male character...then I adored him....then I thought wow what a total p*ick! Then I adored him again...his mess ups were just SO typical male! I just wanted to scream, you STUPID NAIVE MAN! I think we can all agree that sometimes men confound us with their logic...they aren't being dumb they are just being MALE, and this book was full of stupid male...but in a believable way.
The one small complaint I have in this book is that the female lead wouldn't tell the guy how she felt...I get that she is damaged, but I just wanted to scream at her to get over it, or not even try. I spent most of the book thinking will she give him a chance...does he deserve a chance..will they get a chance?
Bottom line I am off to get book 2, hope book 3 is out soon because I can tell this is going to be one of those all consuming trilogies for me where I am dying to know how it all unravels. I would pay full price for this book, and that's saying something!!!
I love to read and listen to erotica all types and paranormal vamps and shifters
I love this book James Cavendish is a very hot sadist. Bianca is so unsure of herself and yes she has many reasons listening to the book for me is better than reading it. I love this series and can't wait to listen to the next book
Really! Orgasmic and erotic! I like it so much! Can't wait for the next book to be out!
"A good book is the best contentment has"
She was just okay, i think the story was really bad. Male voices weren't great. She sounded like she had an excess of mucus.
A flight attendant who can paint, why isn't she a painter? A least she has one talent
I really wasn't feeling this book. Even the character's inner monologues were shallow and uncomplicated. The writing was bad. Also, never open a door if someone is covering the peephole. Especially if you are the type of person to install bars on the windows and doors and to pay for a security system. Moron.
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
As the sexy, handsome, charming, demanding, Billionaire James (aka Mr. Beautiful) pursues the beautiful Virgin Stewardess Bianca he slowly introduces her to the pleasures of his BDSM lifestyle as well as his caring nature. And 'bang', right from the start, I was captivated with all the characters, the descriptive scenes, the dialogue and the enjoyable storyline.
Books 2 & 3 are loaded ready to be played and I'm desperate to listen so I've got to make this quick.... it's emotional, romantic, touching, painful, exciting, very hot and the storyline is filled with likeable/loveable deep characters and the odd bitch or two.
Worth a credit? Oh Yesssiree, great author, decent narrator and a storyline that ticked all my boxes.
This book started out slow for me. I had to read it in between other books to stick with it. By the end, though, I really did want to read the next one. Here's to hoping the next one keeps me interested.
This story is very dull and the dominance mess is also so lame.
This is a 50 shades copy cat all the way down to the Billionaire starts to own the virgin's life. I wasn't crazy about 50 shades, but it did have a better storyline.
The steamy scenes in this book were not well written.
Yes sir and please sir and calling him Mr. Cavadish sir while parts of her body was pinned and clamped is way too far fetched.
The narrator Elizabeth Powers was just ok. Her voice and tone wasn't appealing.
If you're looking for a great HOT romance series, give the Tangled Series by Emma Chase
and the Crossfire Series by Sylvia Day a shot.
