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.

Altho ultimately not my cup of tea, this book really is suspenseful, dramatic, sexy, and very romantic. I was not aware that it contained BDSM. Not that it disgusts me, but it is not tittilating to me. For the right listener/reader, this book could easily end up in their top 10 favorites. The author has created quite the intricate world, and certaily knows how to write damaged, tortured characters. They are well done, deeply wounded, highly passionate, and very human. Yes, there was the occasional use of some flowery synonyms for genetalia (which was a bit hard for me to take seriously), but all in all, if you're looking for a BDSM romance, do take the time to listen or read this book. You may just like it.
Dustboff the 50 shades shelf...Many have tried but this series is a parallel . 60 shades does not have a Stefan...
This story has already been told. Same song different instrument. But still tolerable but the narrator sounds like she needs to drink some water.
The story was so much like Fifty Shades of Grey. Not much happened, and there was unwarranted drama just to have something happen in this book. I am not a fan.
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.
