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'm a bit of a bookaholic, always looking for a new book to add to my collection.
What I liked best was how it wasn't going to be a happy ending for the story, and also how Bianca took charge in the end even though it ended with a surprise visit from her father.
How different it was from other BDSM stories I've read. Honestly at first I was expecting this to be similar to 50 Shades of Grey.
When the rowdy red eye fliers were all but given an a** kicking from Mr. Cavendish.
When it came to the section when Bianca's past came back or when her father made a reappearance at the end that was when it made me jump out of my skin and made me want to listen to the rest of the story.
I love corny romance novels of all kinds, but I didn't like this very much at all! I laughed through a few of the sex scenes, and a lot of the behaviors of James really creeped me out. Also, while the narration was good, it sounded as if it was being recorded from within the narrator's mouth, which got annoying. There was entirely too much swallowing and mouth-moving noises.
I'm torn. I'm not sure how to review this. The story was good, I'm not sure I want to keep going though. I don't feel super connected to the characters. I loved their chemistry. The narrator has a great voice, I'm just not sure it was a good fit for this character. I felt she sounded older than she was in the story.
This is not an original storyline but I did enjoy listening to it and the narrator's performance is very good. It's a romance so expect some unrealistic dialogue and HOT sex scenes. Storyline is a bit predictable and as I mentioned follows similar theme as Fifty Shades so the ending to this book almost exactly follows that series. I found it entertaining nevertheless.
This is good, but Bianca is somewhat frustrating. Her indifference to James, her obliviousness to the obvious is annoying as hell. These moments just make you want to punch her the face.
Honestly this book is essentially the same as the crossfire series, but with a weaker plot and characters. Everything is too neat; It could have used a few curveballs to keep the reader guessing.
I would like to say I enjoyed this beginning to end. But where are all these authors finding the virgins & billionaires? I would like to see a hot & steamy affair with a plumber.
this however was a hot tease to the next installment. I'm hooked.
If you liked 50 shades, you will enjoy this. Very similar. However, it's a bit more entertaining. Has more exciting story line.
It wasn't the worst book I've listened to and it wasn't the best. I enjoyed it, it just wasn't my favorite book. The only thing I truly wish was that the lead male character had a sexier last name. I know that sounds absurd but a name is everything, it really got under my skin that his name didn't roll off the tongue and make you want to swoon. Every time the narrator mentioned his name it made me cringe. The narrator was good, just the name was bad. Other than that miniscule personal preference detail, the book was ok. I'm still on the fence as far as credit worthiness, I'm not going to request a refund by any means but would have MUCH rather spent my credit elsewhere.
