Summary:

James and Bianca’s tumultuous story continues in the sequel to In Flight.

James has initiated Bianca into a dark and drugging world of passion and pain. He taught her about her own submissive, masochistic nature, and she fell swiftly and deeply in love with the undeniably charming and impossibly beautiful Mr. Cavendish, but a painful misunderstanding and the return of the brutally violent demon of her past have combined to overwhelm Bianca, and, confused and hurt, she pushes him away.

It’s been over a month since the shocking attack that hospitalized her, and since she told a distraught James that she needed space, but her feelings haven’t gone away. Even she knew that it was only a matter of time before he would cast his spell on her again…

Review:

When I think about it, there wasn’t really a cohesive plot in this book, expect lots and lots of sex, some filler scenes .... and then sex again. I’m weird, I need a setting, buildup and climax for my stories (and we are not talking about those aspects in sex because, then the book had at least a million plots). Next to the lack of storyline, there were many things I would consider flaws... so why am I reading this? BECAUSE this series is really really addictive! I can’t help it.

Well this book is definitely interesting and creative in the sex department, it was fascinating to read where all and how James and Bianca can get it on. I was left slightly concerned though, because they’re worse than rabbits, it’s like a never-ending marathon with them, is that much sex even healthy anymore or even physically possible? If yes, then congratulations to the couple because they are amazing at it.

I like: The woman is the one who is holding back in the relationship and the guy is totally gaga over her. It’s a nice change, since mostly guys are the ones not getting their act together. It had a lot of sweet and romantic, but slightly obsessively whacky scenes and plenty of the hero swoops down to save the damsel in distress and goes ballistic scenes (even tough, Bianca didn’t really need the help most of the time and stood her ground). They were cute.

Don’t like: Well, as I’ve mentioned, there is basically no plot, except if you consider lots of sex a plot. And also Bianca kind of lost my liking of her in this book.

Characters:

James – I’m in awe of him because normally someone like him would have me running to the hills screaming (him being mega ultra dominant), but you have to admit there is something charming about him in an intense slightly bordering on psycho kind of way. He’s needy, obsessive and quite smothering, but I forgive him since this is fiction and I guess out of reality he seems to be kind of a dream guy everyone thinks they want to have (I’m certain that would never ever ever work in reality though). Other than that, he is still loving, protective, polite, smart, handsome, rich, and the master of between the sheets tango.

Bianca, unfortunately, really got on my nerves in this book. If you don’t want to commit to James then you have no right to be jealous of every single female that he knows (I wouldn’t be surprised if she was suspicious of the cook, maid, random woman on the street, etc – it was that bad). The constant “have you slept with her” was rude, something from his past and something she had absolutely no right to ask since she wouldn’t admit that they were seriously together. He gave her no reason to doubt him and did everything to please her, she was unfair towards him. She also came across so bitter and hostile to everyone except Stephen and a few others. I understand that she had a rough past and the danger is not passed, but she wasn’t likable in this book, yes, she is still beautiful, independent, hardworking, loyal, but her attitude isn’t something I enjoyed.

Stephen was still awesome though. I have to also agree with everyone in the story: Stephen and Javier are adorable, I hope there will be more insight into their relationship or maybe a spin-off?

Overall:

There are issues, but it’s addicting and I need to know what will happen. If you want lots of sex in your book then this is for you.



3 stars!
