(W)REC(K) A BOOK: Mile High

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...

This was soooo much easier on the heart than In Flight!

The story opens up with Bianca and her friends in Miami. More than a month's passed, and time's confirmed that Bianca still likes the kinky control freak, so when she finally texts him back, they meet up in Vegas during her flight crew's get-together on the strip. This was a great way to start it off because there is no dire drama between them, and it was hilarious. The Evil Wanna-Be-Queen Bitch Melissa is there, and after Bianca's had it with having to watch her paw all over her guy for the last time, she physically gets between them, which sets Melissa into throwing a drink at her! James obviously takes the messy hit, and when Melissa stalks off, Murphy (fellow co-pilot) goes, "She be cray cray."
*I love you, Murphy*
Trust me, it was funnier than how I just delivered it. :P Anyway, we also got to meet her other fellow crew, like these two hilarious and blunt, promiscuous women (get it, girls) who end up having a conversation (see: friendly interrogation) with her that gets Bee to admit that his sex skills are on the 'please fuck me' level, and right when Mr. Beautiful is there to hear it, too. XD Great timing, Kinkster!

There was still a lot of heartfelt drama between them, most of them having to do with his past and the women and/or actions that prompt her to ask about former lovers- oh, I'm sorry James, I meant 'fuck buddies'. According to James, Bianca's the only one he's ever made love to. :3 Awwww! He's always treated her fine (and I do mean FINE, mm mmm) but this time, he accompanies them with words that reassure his feelings. In the past, he'd never put his feelings into words. Yes, actions speak louder than words, but for our Bianca, she needs the affirmation- she needs to hear it, Mr. Beautiful!

A lot of his past had me cringing, but it always mellowed down with extremely hot sex or breaking revelations. I loved that Bianca was taking her panic attacks by the neck (like a certain kinky billionaire did to a certain Swedish gal)-

.... what was I saying? Oh, right. It's great that whenever she felt a panic attack coming on about being trapped with a man like her mom had been, she took it by the neck and dealt with it. There was no lingering overkill of indecision. She counted. She took deep breaths. She didn't run, but faced it- and it always made James happy with relief. Bianca also matured a lot in this. When things no woman wants to hear played loud and clear for her, instead of taking her hurt out on James, she accepted the past for what it was. She told him her feelings and thoughts- communicated like a healthy couple should be doing -and let him know that she didn't feel like he was worthless or less deserving of her. And thank God they communicated, 'cause I don't think I would've been able to handle any more heartbreak. XD

As 'In Flight' was about their budding relationship and figuring out each other, 'Mile High' took it to the next level and had Bianca (I say only her because James already knows what he wants) figuring out how far she'd let her fears keep her from her one and only happiness. The second installment was much happier and very fulfilling, and James is just so sweet. After days of constantly asking, she finally relented to moving in with him, but it's hilarious because before she even agreed, he had clothes bought for her to put in his closet right along side his (awww) and got her shelves of manga in his library! I'm biased on the anime and manga that Bianca loves, but still, what a sweetie. :3

The only climax I can think of was either when she agreed to move in with him, or when she got assaulted in the restroom. Yup. Assaulted. By Mr. Cavendish's psycho exes. He finally asked her to attend an event with him, but Jules (ugh hate her name but I need to say it so it's easier to point out her evil ways in the future, 'cause I highly suspect this is not the last we've seen of her) is there, she's the one who caused their temp. separation in the last book, and guess what: she brought another one of James' exes with her. And God- with the way the second woman's acting, Bianca recognizes it immediately. She was one of his Subs. And then when she goes to the restroom, she gets confronted by them- and the old sub tells her that she was with James until the day before he met Bianca. O.O I flipppped!!!!! And then she goes on and says that James likes dominating two women, so if Bianca wants to be in his life, she'll have to be with the sub, too! (WHICH ARE TOTAL LIES JAMES CUTS THAT SHIT) Some serious drama right there, but Bianca made me so proud when she took in that info and didn't let it eat her up. Sure, seeing your guy's beautiful exes just makes you wanna vomit, but by that point in the book, she's already secure enough to take what they say and throw it back at them. Then James came in just as those bitches left and he and Bee went back to his place, and he tied her up (so she didn't run away again, he said, aww T_T) and they talked. And they made love. T_________T It was such a touching moment, and a really great one for James cause she wasn't mad at him and great for her because she finally got confident and- and- just- man, I wish I had a man like James right now and someone to buy me manga! NO- I have that man, but right now he doesn't even know I exist!

Sorry. As I was saying, James may not have changed (thank Goodness, he's kinky and perfect) but he did show a lot of restraint and patience when Bianca needed space. ANDDD I finally met Lana! Remember the crazy-ass women from the restroom? Well Lana, James' old friend, was the one to call James when she saw what was happening to Bee, and after the drama passed, she helped fix Bianca up. Her time in the spotlight was short, but we got to learn about one of James' friends. She's an island girl (Maui) with an unrequited love who sees her as nothing but a sister. Aw. :/ She leaves several pages later, but I saw her book! And you can believe I'm going to read it after this series.

Overall, this was a great book that centered on Bianca and James' next step in their perfect relationship. They've realized that they're the only ones for each other, and have come a long way in forgiving and forgetting their pasts. And speaking of pasts, Bianca's father is still out there, and this time, shit just got real- why? Because the book ended with them finding out that he murdered his wife. A wife, I might add, that he had a son with- and the guy's just a year younger than Bianca. Do the math. And he's living in Manhattan. o.o

I recommend this book, but I should warn you, the sex is three times as kinky, and if you don't like sex near (or on) very large animals, you might not like it. But to each his own, right? Some like sex while riding a horse, others like it while being called daddy (I'll never understand that one o.O).

lol And on that note-!

Happy Reading :)
