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…
Long story short, on the whole I enjoyed Mile High more than the previous one. It’s pretty close to 4 stars. I’m a sappy romantic, so I loved seeing Bianca nurtured and showered with affection.
Despite the fact that he’s always been a manwhore, James only has eyes for Bianca now. He seems to be making it his mission to take care of her in his own dominant way. However, it bothers me that the moment Bianca is in James’s presence, she loses her independence and her boundaries dissolve.
Stephan isn’t in this book as much as the first one, and I missed their fun interactions.
BDSM is integral to the plot, but I think there’s just way too much sex. I found myself wanting to skip some of the sex scenes. It makes me wonder if their relationship is built on a firm foundation or if it’s primarily sex. This series is a page-turning guilty pleasure, though, so I’m off to read the next book.
