In Flight: Up in the Air, Book 1 | [R.K. Lilley]

In Flight: Up in the Air, Book 1

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    "A book should be a complete story"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No, I don't enjoy reading a book that doesn't really get anywhere. The book being broken into parts is a ridiculous notion and bothers me that I paid full price for so little of the story. I think the author is trying to rope you in to reading/listening and paying for 3-5 books there other authors write brilliantly and gets to the point in the faction of the time and money.


    Has In Flight turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I'm not a fan of young adult because I can't really relate to that age or late of any type of wisdom anymore. I mean how does someone who is a virgin decide to have an intense sexual experience on a whim?


    Which character – as performed by Elizabeth Powers – was your favorite?

    I don't think Elizabeth Powers had a negative effect on the story.


    Did In Flight inspire you to do anything?

    Not to read the other books in this series and maybe not to read other works from this author.


    Any additional comments?

    Not a good book! Just not worth the money or time!

    "Not just a sexy story"

    I expected the sexy but was pleasantly surprised at the depth of this book. I don't usually listen to straight "romance" books (more into urban fantasy and the supernatural) but don't mind graphic sex if it is weaved into the story properly, which I think the author accomplished quite well considering just how much sex was packed into the book. The charachters were believable as was the way the story unfolded - with just a few exceptions (no man in real life could have that kind of stamina).

    I think my favorite character though was Stephan. I fell in love with him and would love for him to have his story told in a full book of his own.

    I would definitely recommend the whole series!

    "A great read!!!"

    Never left a review before. But feel I have to. The story is everything you could want in a book,and the narrator is fantastic. I laughed and cried, felt the excitement through all the well written bdsm scenes (hot as hell by the way),, sadness and anger at the discovery of the betrayal both had been through by those who were supposed to be caring for them early in their lives. I only hope that book to is as well written. Will let you know when I've read it.. GREAT BOOK!!!!!

    "Best series I have ever read"
    Where does In Flight rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the best book series that I have ever read. I read books 1-3 in less than three days. I was so obsessed I couldn't book this book down.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Stephan, he was so good with Bianca and James. I loved how much he protected her.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Bianca first met James. How they couldn't stop staring at each other. It was an amazing love storey


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I couldn't stop reading this book. I listened to it at school, work and in the car. It was amazing

    This is Chelsea, not Brandon. I'm not sure how to change that. Voracious romance reader, addicted audio listener.

    "Old story, new packaging"
    What did you like best about In Flight? What did you like least?

    What I like most and least about this story is the same: it's a favorite I've heard before. It feels like a million other books in the genre


    Was In Flight worth the listening time?

    I like this genre so it was ok


    Any additional comments?

    This book was average. If you've read the crossfire series, you'll find this familiar. Girl running from past abuse, has gay best friend, meets millionaire playboy with control issues. If you like the genre, you'll like this. It was missing a spark for me. Not enough humor or something to make this a favorite. I couldn't drum up the interest to look for book two.

    Story
    "For Those Who Like Billionare Domination It Themes"
    What did you like best about In Flight? What did you like least?

    Best: I liked the book...fantasy (not PNR fantasy.) It was well written and a blend of humor, romance, over the top - this could never happen but its fun to imagine it could.

    Least: Story line of billionaire, dominant is getting tiresome for ME. That is not to take anything away from this book. It is a great book with enough originality to not be a cookie cutter 'billionaire' story.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It is a cliffhanger...there is no completion, so know that you'll be tempted to buy the next two.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator was average to better than average in the female character roles. The male characters left a bit to be a desired.


    Do you think In Flight needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    It is the first of 3 books...so it has a follow-up book. I don't think I'll invest in the next two because I'm tired of this type of story.


    Any additional comments?

    NOTES: Mature themes, violence and strong language
    This book was on sale for less than $6. A great marketing move.
    Credit worthy: No not when it is available for $6.95

    I am the definition of a contradiction. I am a tomboy but just can't seem to get enough of romance books!

    Story
    "Meh..."

    I expected more.... I felt that the leading lady and her BFF dominated this book more that the leading lady and her leading man!

    Bianca is a walled-up flight attendant who is tempted into the world of pleasure & pain by a billionaire sort-of playboy James. I felt James and Bianca mostly connected while having sex...but as individuals, bonding was a problem... primarily because Bianca is very walled-up, she can't read all the signs right in front of her!

    Not the worst listen by far... but it just didn't have that edge...

    Story
    "It's good at times."
    What aspect of Elizabeth Powers’s performance would you have changed?

    I listened to the book with head phones and it sounded like she had a lozenge in her mouth. It just about drove me crazy enough to quit the book. I don't know if it's as noticeable listening to it on a speaker. By book 3 either I was used to it or she didn't make that noise anymore.


    Was In Flight worth the listening time?

    It was worth it, I guess. I liked the story but the some of the erotic stuff was more abusive than erotic and in the 3rd book some of it was just gross.
