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.

So glad I got this book! It was truly wonderful, and the narrator was my favorite so far of all the books I've listened to.
I can't wait to get the rest of the books in this series and I will definitely be looking for other books narrated by Elizabeth Powers.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher, in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
Could not believe how hokey this was. Only a virgin who had never been kissed would think this was the least bit interesting. Quite tedious. Nice premise with the two friends, but aside from that it was very amateurish. I feel rather betrayed by my fellow readers and listeners for giving it such high ratings. I will no longer trust you!
I barely got through Chapter 4 before throwing in the towel. I had previously read as e-books and loved the entire Up in the Air series. BUT, I couldn't, just couldn't listen to anymore of the audio book. The narrator distracted me from the story instead of immersing me into the story.
I recommend reading the series instead of listening to it.
The narration was good, the sex scenes were hot... but the main male character was such a despicable person (controlling, jealous, rude, and then easily forgiven by the female lead) that it was hard to enjoy this book.
This has all the elements I like in the right portions
Lots of steamy hotness
Mile High and Deep Despair
Poor lovely innocent girl with a platonic male best friend. Her world is turned upside down when she meets a handsome, dominant, sadist billionaire. 50 Shades of Grey. But the writing is much better on this one.
Enjoy reading fiction, thrillers (JD Robb), romance, military and comedy (Evanovich). Listen to Audiobooks on treadmill and long road trips!
Pretty decent story. Narration good.

I picked up this book because I was interested in the flight attendant/airplane portion of the plot. I hadn't even noticed BDSM was part of the storyline. I loved the quick wit and the relationship between Bianca and Stephan. The heat between Bianca and Mr. Beautiful was well written. Some say there are lots of similarities between this series and FSOG, but I can see some of the main differences are what make this book interesting (Bianca's childhood; how quickly he wants a relationship). I'm intrigued to see how the story continues.
I believe this book is a strong starter to this series. Also has a stronger storyline and it's not all kinky BDSM sex. Although there are are few really hot scenes that'll make you journey or blushing ;)
