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.

Better secondary characters, more interesting "young billionaire that was abused as a kid" character, so prevelant these days.
The scene where yet another troubled 20-something billionaire declares ownership, sexual and otherwise, of a beautiful woman he's known for less than a week.
Story was elevated by a superb narrator.
I received this audiobook as a gift.
I enjoyed the story. There were times when I really wondered how realistic it was, but then just continued on that it was just a story.
Bianca was a different kind of leading lady for me. She was very passive. Every boundary she had, she let James pass through without much thought. Kind of bothered me. If she had so much trauma in her past, and so much distrust... She gave it up to him pretty quick... I am not sure if I will get the next book... Have to think on ot
She ruined the book for me. I purchased the eBooks last year and loved them. So I thought I could Purchase the audiobooks but Elizabeth Powers voice was great not the other noises her mouth makes. I couldn't tell if she was thirsty or too much spit in her mouth. Totally ruined the book for me
yes and no
Elizabeth Powers should not narrate books. I'm sorry but the noises she makes are aggravating
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.
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?
I don't think Elizabeth Powers had a negative effect on the story.
Not to read the other books in this series and maybe not to read other works from this author.
Not a good book! Just not worth the money or time!
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!
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!!!!!
This is a great book, and has a legit story line. I couldn't stop listening, and it was extremely well narrated
