Mile High by RK Lilley

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.

So continues the story of James Cavendish and Bianca Karlsson. This book picks up where the last book left--when Bianca was hospitalized after being attacked by her father. She had asked James for some space but James was still in constant contact with Stephan.

Now, let's talk about Stephan. I love this guy. He might not be the main "main" guy in this series but I just think he was an awesome character. Hot gay bestfriend alert! (Hello, Matt Bomer. Hello, Wentworth Miller. Hello, Luke Evans. Hello, Neil Patrick Harris.) I love how his character remained the constant rock in Bianca's life. The steadfastness of their friendship was a joy to read. The easy camaraderie that formed between Stephan and James was also something else. Considering that they were both the most important men in Bianca's life, it was a relief that the entrance of James into her life didn't cause any friction between Bianca and Stephan or Stephan and James.

This book also told more on the love story of Stephan and Javier. It was a story of trust and second chances. It was a side story worth journeying through in this series.

One of my most favorite parts in this book was...James got inked! I love inks myself so I think anyone that gets some tasteful tattoo will always be hot. He promised that he would be doing it to show Bianca how serious he was with her, that she was not just a passing fancy. And when James finally did it? *wolf whistles* 

If the first book left with Bianca's father attacking her, this one also left on another dark note. Bianca learned that her father had remarried but soon after she contacted Bianca, she also met the same fate as Bianca's mother--death by her husband's hand.

This book also introduced a number of new secondary characters that you can't help wishing they would have their own stories. It's a reflief that there is still a third installments just waiting to be read.

Final verict: 9/10. Great read, must have.
