Loved this book. It is not extremely different from other books but I really liked it. I was hooked from chapter one. Elizabeth Powers did a great ..Show More »job of narrating the characters. I love the relationship between Bianca and Stephan. The love and support makes you just smile. I also like the twists and turns with Bianca and James. The fact that James can be dark, mysterious and sex and you never know what he is going to be keeps you listening. My only criticism is that audible does not have the next two books so you either have to read them or hope audible gets them. I wish they would not do that. Either get the entire series or none of it. This seems to happen a lot. Otherwise I think this is a great listen. Like I said it is not wow, crazy new concept but a really solid romantic love story with some twists.
OMG this COMPLETELY blew book 1 out of the water!!
Wow..Oh...Wow...I'm not kidding when I say the sequel completely blew the first book out of the water!!! For some reason, I just couldn't connect with..Show More » these characters in the first book. I almost didn't continue with the sequel but now I'm sure glad I did.The story begins around one month after the events of the first book, In Flight, it picks up with the drama straight away, with James and Bianca still struggling with their tumultuous relationship. They both still want each other, badly, but Bianca has issues with the relationship side. So, she is taking a break from James while trying to collect her thoughts & pull herself together. Being with James is scary for her. He's the only man she's ever had feelings for and she can't think clearly when he's near her. At times, I did find Bianca a bit more irritating & frustrating in this book rather than the first. And James Cavendish, you have slowly won me over & rocked my world! Let me just take a minute to fan my self....whew! Hot, Delicious, Smexy man!! His character was definitely more engaging in this book less abrasive. We see a softer deeper side of him. James is full on head over heals in love with her in this book. He wants her so badly and will not stop until he gets what he desires from her. His feelings for Bianca run extremely deep. When she finally acquiesces and allows herself to meet up with James at a party the sparks ignite and their relationship moves quickly. Of course, this is mostly due to James and I wouldn't have expected any less! He is certainly the man who knows what he wants and will go ALL OUT to make it happen.However, he has a ton of work ahead of him trying to get Bianca to open up and see the relationship for what it is. Yes, James is still controlling and dominant, he mostly keeps it restricted to the bedroom, although he is bossy and involves himself in Bianca’s life in any way that he can. But, this is fiction, it’s expected from him, and we love it! And he seems to know what she needs. I did find some of their behaviour together a little strange (the undressing, bathing, and then there’s the other side with the punishment stuff), but I guess it did works for them. Regardless, their chemistry is absolutely palpable as well as in the BDSM element. The steamy scenes in this book are even more SIZZLING HOT in this book than the last. Actually, there were some very unique sex time moments. (I did eye roll during one but it was still entertaining). I really liked the BDSM in this one. It wasn't too much and didn't feel overwhelming. Overall, the story focused on Bianca & James' relationship as they deal with past partners, jealously, paparazzi and some revelation regarding her family towards the end. And this is when I share how much I HATE FREAKING CLIFFHANGERS!!! So, as you can guess the drama continues with Bianca’s family and James’ exes, and with particular storylines that were left undone and twists uncovered, I’m looking forward to seeing further developments in the next book. In fact, I'm very anxious for Audible to release the 3rd book Grounded! For me Mile High was the perfect combo of sex, sex, sex *wink* wink*, love and domination. James really lit up the pages keeping us fully in tune to his dominating ways. Bianca was the perfect submissive learning that with James she's exactly where she's suppose to be. For a sequel, I was extremely impressed, and I felt as though the author did a superb job of keeping the story spicy and interesting. The character development ans pace were great. I would absolutely recommend this series.
