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 b

My heart is racing. I want to SQUEEE from the rooftops!!!
I'm completely and utterly in love with James Cavendish.
He's a fuckhot and Dominant, and yet tender and swoony billionaire!
I'm hooked on this trilogy. Completely.
James Cavendish has stolen my heart!

He has a place right there in the same sentence as Christian and Gideon.
Now its Christian, Gideon and James . SQUEEEEEEEEEE <3

“You’re my angel, Bianca. You’ve exorcized my demons. I don’t have nightmares when I’m with you. I don’t have to work seventy hour work weeks to keep my mind distracted. My life has become more than work and emotionless affairs. You make me a better man.”


I gripped his silky hair in my fists. “I missed you, too. It’s scary just how much. I don’t know how it happened so fast, but you feel like home to me, James.”

A hoarse, pained sound escaped his throat. “Yes,” he said, his voice rough with emot

The second installment in the "Up In The Air" Trilogy and Bianca and James are BACK setting beds, planes and horses on fire!


I LOVE James Cavendish!! There I admit it... He is confident, possesive obsessive, romantic, dominant, beautiful, persistent, knows what he wants and he is set on getting it!! In this book he is grovelling and OH GOD what a grovel.... Irresistable, sexy man....

This is another deeply erotic and highly emotional instalment in Bianca and James' story.

It's the second part of the Up in the Air Trilogy and it doesn’t work as a standalone. You need to read In Flight first – I can highly recommend it. If you like hot, dominant alpha males, it will definitely work for you. Also, my review may be slightly spoilery for In Flight so please make sure you’ve read that before you carry on here.

We pick up a few weeks after the end of the first book. Bianca has recove

This is the second book in the Up In The Air Trilogy the first being In Flight which I have to say I didn’t love but don't hate either. I had serious mixed feelings about the book and the series but there was something that made me want to keep going and see how things developed and turned out and I have to say I’m SOOOOO glad I kept reading. This book was freaking SCORCHING...WOWZERS!!! James was extremely delicious in this one with a soft side that I found really

★★★★★! Up in the Air series, book 2 of 3. Debut by R.K. Lilley. Intense, epic saga, erotic tale & mesmerizing love story with a larger-than-life James Cavendish & his Bianca!

There are three books in the Up In The Air series, but see below for BONUS chapter links:
Book 1: In Flight
Book 2: Mile High
Book 3: Grounded

James Cavendish and Bianca Karlsson are both beautiful beyond words, but underneath those good looks are two very broken, flawed, lonely and haunted souls. This is the continua

The ending of In Flight was pretty awful and things haven't gotten better. While Bianca's body is healing, her mind, heart, and soul are trying to make sense of what's going on with her and James. Can she really trust him? And more importantly, can she let him in?

When Bianca finally agrees to see James, it's at a nightclub and James hadn't shown up yet. Bianca was opening up and telling some of the other flight attendants about him...

“On a scale of one to ten, what was he?”

I sighed. They were
Ok seriously? This book makes 50 shades look like a masterpiece. Honestly I saw the reviews and thought it would be decent but was very misled. First I can't picture this James guy to be in his 20's he reads like he is a good decade older. He is also extremely needy and annoying with constant txt's and phone calls and the public groping because for all his good looks and stupid Bianca reassuring him he still doesn't bloody get it. I don't give a crap how hot he is - he is an annoying whiner. And ...more
Mile High is Fifty Shades fanfic gone wrong. Let me provide a brief synopsis of this book: Bianca and James have sex. Yep, that’s it. No character development. No storyline. No plot. Just sex – straight up book porn. Which might serve its purpose if it was hot sex, however, sometimes Mile High sex ventured a bit too much into weird territory. Let me explain.

I personally enjoy a good, kinky BDSM book. I loved The Original Sinners series, which has tons of hot, smexy, kinky scenes. However, there

Re read February 2013 (double the love)!

This trilogy has got me all kinds of 'book excited' 5 delicious, heart stopping, James and Bianca stars.

This story started perfectly from where book one's dramatic cliff hanger left off. If I thought I enjoyed James and Bianca's story before in book one, in this book I was positively swooning.

In this second book the author takes us on the delicious journey of obvious soul Mates, we get to learn more about the characters that I fell in love with from book o
OMG, James Cavendish, you continue to rock my world!

Continuing on one month after the events of the first book, In Flight, this book picks up the drama straight away, with James and Bianca still struggling with their tumultuous, fledgling relationship. They still want each other, badly, but Bianca still has issues with the relationship side. And OMG, those issues get played out in frustrating detail!!!! The woman did my head in for half of this book! How can she still be so freaking oblivious??

Holy Tattoo James and all that kinky fuckery! WOW... Yum

Story picks up a month later after the events of Book 1... and in that first page I was already antsy to get James and Bianca back together... tied up together and all. Thankfully I did not have to wait long for all their sexing to begin. James is even more determined to keep her in his life and in some instances to keep her running away from him after that horrible incident at the event.

Well this one went downhill FAST for me.

The things that I loved so much about In Flight were almost nonexistent in the book.

I loved Stephen's character in book 1, and his character almost completely disappears in this book. I loved Bianca's backbone in the first book. I liked that she stood up for herself and had boundaries when it came to James. In this book, she surrenders as James's sub and her lovely character disappeared. It was a shame.

I really liked this book. It has just the right amount of drama for a light, hot read.

I love the developing relationship between James

and Bianca.

I love how dominate and possessive he is. The things that James does to Bianca is just flat out hot!

I can't wait to get more of this sexy couple in Grounded.

"You're more precious than my own life to me, Bianca."

"You feel like home to me, James." A hoarse pained sound escaped his throat. "Yes," he said, he voice rough with emotion. "This is home."

Love Love Love this book!!!! I can't get enough of James and Bianca. I want book three like now. It was such an incredible book and I pretty much swooned over James the entire time while reading this. An excellent book and recommended to everyone who loves a sexy billionaire.

Proof that hilarious Murphy + sexy Damien need their own series. I'd read that.

Mr. Cavendish doesn't disappoint in this book. There were so many moments where I wanted to jump into the book and take Bianca's place.

"Then live with me. Be with me. Swear you'll never leave me."

"Meet my future"


Looking forward to book 3 and HEA

James Cavendish is beyond amazzzzzing!!!
Simply beautiful man who falls in love with Bianca.

I love the fact that he gave her space in his own way. It was the sweetest thing that he still kept in touch with Stephan to see how she was doing...

I don’t know why I am so into this series considering I am not really “into” the characters or storyline. Mile High is the second book in the Up In The Air trilogy and I found myself again not really into the book but couldn’t wait to start book three. So really, I don’t know if I like the series or don’t… this is going to be a strange review!

Dear Ms. Lilley,


When I just started to think [again] that your book was a copycat from Fifty Shades of Grey (Fifty Shades, #1) by E.L. James and Bared to You (Crossfire, #1) by Sylvia Day, you prove me so wrong!

Even though I'm still really partial about Bianca's name, you narrate such a great story: sometimes hilarious [even it wasn't the intention or maybe because I'm a little sarcastic and cynical person, and love noir humor], intriguing on others, dramatic in many more, but, mainly, your smoothness along your novel saved your book.

I'm in love with every and each of one of
Well... Just finished this second installment in this series.. and I'm giving another 3.5 STARS to this one.

James and Bianca's story continues, their love appears to blossom.... or maybe the correct word should be their OBSESSION with each other seems to take over their lives!! Because that is how I see this relationship. And though I do not deny that they share feelings for each other, I just couldn't shake this feeling of wariness. It seems to me that their relationship is based solely on sex
Vikki ~ *squee* lite ~
I liked Mile High more then the previous book. I still felt weirdly disconnected from James and Bianca's story, but for me that started to lift every so slightly at about the 75% mark, which was enough to make me want to read the third installment. I was kind of surprised that there wasn't more plot movement in this one. It was mostly a lot of the same relationship building as the first, with James wanting more, and Bianca being determined to believe that James can't really care about her as muc ...more

Gitte: How much were we dying to get onto book #2 in this trilogy Jenny?! Seriously I could not get enough Mr. James Cavendish…yum…and there was a bit of a cliff-hanger in book #1!! Oh, actually before I say anything else, we can’t forget to say that readers definitely need to read book #1 ‘In Flight’ before moving onto this one as it picks up a few weeks after and the story line won’t make much sense otherwise. So moving on, I’ve been s

I thought about what a beautiful thing his heart was, to always see the good around the mess that it was buried in.

If you've already read In Flight the first novel in this trilogy then you already know the back story of this series. I absolutely adored the first book, so I was a little scared to how Mile High would compare. While I don't think Mile High was an all around better book, I do think it was better in some in some aspects. This series is amazing so far, a
